Your still missing the big picture here...

Iraq\Sadam used WMDs on hundreds of thousands of his own citizens.

Iraq\Sadam supported and harbored terrorists.

Iraq\Sadam and the terrorist groups he has harbored and supported have been trying to aquire nuclear devices and other WMD related things from N.Korea and other places.

Nearly everyone in the world considered Iraq a threat and an aggressor.

It wasn't until the US actually took action that people\leaders\countries flip flopped.

We may yet find solid evidence (there are some indicators \leads being investigated at this point) of payoffs from Sadam to European nations like France and UN members and Inspectors - including money involved in the so called "food for oil" program.

Ect ect...
