  • Five hundred WMDs found in Iraq

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,200499,00.html
    http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/06/22/060622055545.07o4imol.html

    The coalition agreed to the armistice back in 1991 because Saddam said that he would destroy all of his WMDs within 45 days, and he never did. Hopefully, they will find some of the newer weapons that he had scientists working on. That is assuming that he did not destroy all of the evidence prior to the 2003 reinvasion.

      Interesting. I do think that it will take decades before we ever fully figure everything out.

            /me agrees, this is probably just the Bush administration trying to resurrect their horrible poll numbers.

              He is in there for the last time, so I doubt they care much about public opinion at this point.

              IMHO I don't care if they find them or not. We had no reason to go in there, the money would have been better spent here at home. We'll spend years cleaning up the problems this has caused up, and the people will be paying for every bit of it.

              I'm still thankful to everyone that has served in this war (and all the ones in the past). I'm sick of seeing people putting down the guys over there, it's not their fault.

                It's an article rehashing the fact that they have found old weapons that date to the Iran-Iraq war and were degraded to the point of being useless.
                If you've watched the news over the past 3 years you would already know this. I don't understand why they're digging up old news.

                    Why? Because it is provocative, or that it makes a point that you don't like?

                      Did you read the entire article? It says:

                      Asked just how dangerous the weapons are, Hoekstra said: "One or two of these shells, the materials inside of these, transferred outside of the country, can be very, very deadly."

                      The report said that the purity of the chemical agents -- and thus their potency -- depends on "many factors, including the manufacturing process, potential additives, and environmental storage conditions."

                      "While agents degrade over time, chemical warfare agents remain hazardous and potentially lethal," it said.
                      That is hardly useless and considering the low LD50 of Sarin Gas, even at 1% efficiency, it would still be very deadly. I do not know why everyone who reads the article gets the idea that the weapons are useless.

                      Are people so uneased by this that they must find any evidence that will allow them to declare the weapons are useless so that they can live their daily lives and upon finding that evidence they must stop reading to avoid the possibility of reading conflicting evidence? I wonder, is anyone that seeks to declare these weapons impotent so secure in his theory that he would volunteer to test it?

                      Whenever someone mentions nuclear weaponry, people seek to expand the lethality of them to epic proportions but whenever someone mentions chemical weaponry, people seek to narrow the lethality of them to the point of non-existance. Do we really need a chemical Hiroshima to get people to view chemical weaponry as they do nuclear weaponry, and must everything be either the apocalypse or the equivalent of chickpox and not what it actually is?

                        I'm just curious why, after all this time they haven't found any, reported back there were no WMD... and suddenly: Oh! We've been finding them since 2003.

                        ... something ain't right.

                          The media has been censoring the information we hear from Iraq:

                          http://newsbusters.org/node/6044
                          http://newsbusters.org/node/6046
                          http://newsbusters.org/node/6050
                          http://newsbusters.org/node/6061

                          Hence, why we are only hearing about this now when there is a substantial report, and even then its coverage is only spotty at best. There was a Sarin Gas shell that an insurgent used against US soldiers two years ago but that never got much news coverage and was heavily downplayed.

                            you know, press in US is no better than what it was like USSR. filled with utter bull**** and propaganda. I especially love the rants about poor and 'heroic' US soldiers who were killed in YET ANOTHER sandy country US were dumb enough to invade. oh well, lets hope iraqis manage to put those WMDs to good use. *cough*

                              USSR press was quite different, thank you very much.

                              As far as your hoping the Iraqi's put the WMD to good use, I sure hope you did not mean that the way I read it.

                              Either way, a poor topic to be discussed here.
