Not much of a revelation

NY Times on "Bush Was Set on Path to War"

At their meeting, Mr. Bush and Mr. Blair candidly expressed their
doubts that chemical, biological or nuclear weapons would be found in
Iraq in the coming weeks, the memo said. The president spoke as if an
invasion was unavoidable. The two leaders discussed a timetable for the
war, details of the military campaign and plans for the aftermath of
the war.

Revelations about instigating a conflict a la the Maine are somewhat new, but hardly surprising.  I was hoping for something like making Saddam's moustache a sentient being who would then lead a coup d'etat against the Baathist regime. Instead the suggestions were the typical "shoot down a U2" or "assassinate Hussein".   Seen it, done it!

Still the key question: why go was war with Iraq absolutely necessary?  This answer to this question has never been presented to me satisfactorily.
