Total coalition forces dead: 307
Total Iraqi Dead: 700,000+ [yeah, I'm still keeping that number -- sorry PH]

You forgot one... 10 years ago today, President Clinton made this speech in front of Congress:

Together, we must confront the new hazards of chemical and biological weapons and the outlaw states, terrorists, and organized criminals seeking to acquire them. Saddam Hussein has spent the better part of this decade and much of his nation's wealth not on providing for the Iraqi people but on developing nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons and the missiles to deliver them. The United Nations weapons inspectors have done a truly remarkable job finding and destroying more of Iraq's arsenal than was destroyed during the entire Gulf war. Now Saddam Hussein wants to stop them from completing their mission.

I know I speak for everyone in this chamber, Republicans and Democrats, when I say to Saddam Hussein, "You cannot defy the will of the world," and when I say to him, "You have used weapons of mass destruction before. We are determined to deny you the capacity to use them again."
President Bill Clinton

Hey, PH! I thought I recognized your fine hand in that post. Welcome back. I really have to admire you. You're like a Timex watch -- you take a licking and keep on ticking.
So, here's my usual and customary answer your post: So what?
Did Bill Clinton invade Iraq? Nope. He, unlike your best boy, Der Monkey Fuehrer, relied on the UN and the weapons inspectors, along with enforcing the "no fly zone" and the sanctions (which, BTW, I didn't agree with, since the only ones to suffer under economic sanctions were the Iraqi people).
So, you got any arguments from this century?

Sure, lets see what the FBI agent who spent a lot of time with him said:

(CBS) In fact, Piro says Saddam intended to produce weapons of mass destruction again, some day. "The folks that he needed to reconstitute his program are still there," Piro says.

"And that was his intention?" Pelley asks.

"Yes," Piro says.

"What weapons of mass destruction did he intend to pursue again once he had the opportunity?" Pelley asks.

"He wanted to pursue all of WMD. So he wanted to reconstitute his entire WMD program," says Piro.

"Chemical, biological, even nuclear," Pelley asks.

"Yes," Piro says.
