UPDATE: As most people don’t realize the Iraqis SOLD the yellowcake to Canada. All we did was transport it. So if anyone should be “compensated” it should be the US for transporting it. And “compensation”? How about 4,000 lives and billions of dollars and providing freedom? Yeah I think that is compensation too. Either way the Iraqis SOLD IT to Canada. So they are MAKING MONEY not losing it.
In short we found Saddam’s nuclear material stash.
The AP reports “The last major remnant of Saddam Hussein’s nuclear program – a huge stockpile of concentrated natural uranium – reached a Canadian port yesterday to complete a secret U.S. operation that included a two-week airlift from Baghdad and a ship voyage crossing two oceans.
The removal of 550 metric tons of “yellowcake” – the seed material for higher-grade nuclear enrichment – was a significant step toward closing the books on Hussein’s nuclear legacy. It also brought relief to U.S. and Iraqi authorities who had worried that the cache would reach insurgents or smugglers crossing to Iran to aid its nuclear ambitions.”
Once again Bush was right and the liberals were wrong.

P.S. For those that say this is not a war then you must agree Kosovo was not one too. Oh and how about Afghanistan not one too right? Korean War? Yeah none of those were wars just like how Hitler never invaded Poland.
