RE: 101 Finds Arms Cache In Iraq
This is being stretched out of proportion and becoming relatively a relatively meaningless sequence of posts. Sounds like some weapons stash has been found of the variety that is being used to arm insurgents from outside Iraq. That is good news. To spin it into a WMD equivalent find, or evidence of our NATO allies involved in active support of the insurgents against the United States is worthy of a FOX News headline, but it is fiction pure and simple.
I think there are probably legal weapons sales to countries not in NATO who might be inclined to provide such weapons to parties supporting the insurgents from outside Iraq. I also think it should not be beyond the reasonable interpretation of such activities to include that there might be recent burying of such weapons grants by insurgents.
Since these weapons are used to kill Americans and what appear to be random, innocent Iraqis by the insurgents, IT IS A GOOD THING THEY WERE DISCOVERED. That sounds good enough to me, and lets hope we are onto something here that will be exploited to make the area safer for our forces over there, and the general Iraqi population. Jim
