GUEST EDITORIAL Is Assad Using Saddam's WMDs? by Sal Giarratani Remember when the justification for President Bush's "War of Terror" against President Sadam Hussein in the wake of the 9/11 attack on America? We went in, but to our surprise no biological or Chemi- cal weapons to be found. The liberal media criticized Bush to no end for finding no WMDs. However, now we are suspecting that before America struck Iraq following 9/1 l, Hussein may have shipped those WMDs to Assad in Syria. Let us hope that fight- ing Syria doesn't lead us into Egypt as Iraq led us to Afghanistan. We are now in an endless war mode and the liberal news media is silent with the Obama Administration war-like rhetoric. Is it okay for Democrats in the White House to go to war, but not Republican Presidents? America needs to come home and do some nation building at home and stop looking for our dog's in some- one else's fight.
