RE: Unbelievably frighting news from Iraq

So much for the war being fought to keep weapons of mass destruction from falling into the hands of terrorists, right MRTIKKET ? The war built on bullshit. Bush, a genius, who makes no mistakes.

Hey, no problem, there wasn't any WMD in the first place. Right? So how can it be missing?

RE: Unbelievably frighting news from Iraq

Hey, we went through this on MBshop. These are materials from the Iraqi nuclear power plant that the Israelis destroyed, and which were packaged under the UN supervisor's watch, and subsequently under UN guard until we initiated the "Shock and Awe" stage of our invasion. The UN guards left. But we were in such good terms with the UN we didn't even know what they were doing. This was compounded by our superior planning for the invasion where the fact this stuff was unguarded went unnoticed for months. During that time substantial quantities of these materials were looted. Our first inkling of the existence of these materials coincided with our discovery of substantial nuclear materials being sold in black markets. Hard to believe we were unable to sort through this before we attacked and had a subsequent plan to control these matierials. Suggesting these were the original WMD is misleading. Jim

RE: Unbelievably frighting news from Iraq

Not misleadign at all, kind sir.

Can one convert that crap to a dirty bomb? Yes? Its a WMD.

But wait, its not a WMD because that would mean Saddam had WMD so it cannot be dangerous, therefore, I see no problem.

RE: Unbelievably frighting news from Iraq

Saddam didn't have it. The UN had it under their supervision in Iraq at the time. It was supposedly common knowledge. That makes it not WMD Saddam had. There is a difference. We put it in the hands of people, other than Saddam, who would like to make it a WMD by attacking without being aware it existed and was being left unguarded.

We would have been better off to have checked the inventory of bad stuff in Iraq that the UN was in charge of, and made plans to keep that bad stuff from getting in the hands of people who would make WMD from it, before the invasion was started. If it is not clear that attacking without a plan for this, and God knows what else is now missing, demonstrates we rushed to war, I am not sure there is any evidence that will convince some people.

RE: Unbelievably frighting news from Iraq

This is typical, nobody made a stint about it when they found those 10 + gas shells a few months back.
Each shell was capable of killing 10,000 plus people times that by ten. You do the math. If that wasn't considered WMD's, how many murdered people does it take to be put in the WMD category. Another thing the UN DID NOT have total supervision of Iraq's arsenal!! If you remeber back to the last few yrs leading up to 9-11.( FACT ) The UN was barred from going to certain regions and facilities for inspection by Saddam, and ultiamtely was kicked out of the country entirely. (FACT )During this time not only did the US intelligence, but that of Britain, Russia, France & Israel observed large convoys coming and going from Iraq to Syria.This is where they believe large quantities of weapons were transported.If you notice there are countries on that list that did not support the war as well. For you naive Moore fans out there, that believed everything. (FACT) He won't even claim his movie as a documentary, he'll only says it's entertainment. If it's the truth like he claims than why won't he categorize it as a documentary..

The truth hurts !!!
