I do remember the German government's statements, that's why I didn't include them in my list above.Kraut said:One of the major war-arguments came from the german intelligence service (the infamouse mobile weapon labs) yet by January 2003 the BND revoked their assessment as they found out how unreliable their only! source was. But that didn't stopped the US in still using it as an argument at the UN in February, despite now knowing that it was based on nothing.
I'd have to review the old newspaper articles etc. about that; based on my memory, I don't agree with your statement.EDIT: Oh, and nobody ever said that Iraq was an immediate threat (except the USA), all that was speculated that there could be WMDs in Iraq, but I think most nations never though that even if there were WMDs in Iraq that there was ever a danger of them beeing used against the USA, even more unlikely was any 'immediate' threat.
My memory is that UK also thought the threat was immediate, and France may have as well (obviously France thought that a different method of dealing with Iraq was appropriate).
