Why has the statement that WMDS weren't found in Iraq now accepted as a truth? Especially in light of so much physical evidence, it looks as though the democratic Party and all to the left of them have convinced the world along with some Republicans that WMDS were never found. Looks like they took a move out of Joseph Goebbels playbook Wmd's were found in Iraq, I will give a few examples.
2003- UN Inspectors found 11 empty chemical warheads in excellent condition prior to the invasion. They were illegal and supposed to be destroyed (http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/meast/01/16/sproject.irq.wrap/index.html)
USA Today- Marines Reported two missiles tipped with sarin and mustard, and fourteen barrels of chemical agent. I already cited USA Today but...(http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2003-04/08/content_821399.htm)
2003, Reuters- a cache of BM-21 missiles loaded with sarin were found and ready to fire. Once again I already cited Reuters but...(http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A47645-2003Apr7.html) (http://worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=31920) I will give you an address to a post that carries the Reuters article (http://www.thehighroad.org/archive/index.php/t-17328.html)
2004- Polish troops find 17 shells of sarin and mustard gas (http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_kmafp/is_200407/ai_n6844616) (http://1918.com/article.php?article_id=2032&type=read)
2004- 500 tons of uranium(enough for 142 bombs) found at an Iraqi nuclear facility. 1.8 tons were enriched, they found centrifuges (for enrichment) at the site, all was illegal (http://archive.newsmax.com/archives/ic/2005/11/2/220331.shtm) (http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=38213) http://www.signonsandiego.com/uniontrib/20040522/news_1n22uranium.html http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/3009082.stm
2004-two separate attacks with ieds show one was filled with sarin, the other mustard. Both shells were tied to a cache Saddam supposedly destroyed. (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0, 2933, 120137, 00.html) (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4997808/)
2003- Dozens of soldiers, a CNN cameraman, a Knight Ridder reporter, and two Iraqi pow's were all treated for exposure to nerve agents after finding a mobile labratory containing several chemical weapons including sarin, tabun and lewisite. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1022824/posts (http://fixedreference.org/en/20040424/wikipedia/April_2003)
2006- we learn that 500 sarin and mustard gas shells were discovered in Iraq. They are not new, but very deadly and useful as wmds according to the US Report on the weapons. (http://pajamasmedia.com/2006/06/wmd_found_in_iraq.php) (http://www.cnsnews.com/ViewNation.asp?Page=/Nation/archive/200606/NAT20060621e.html )
The fourth Infantry found a stockpile of .55 gal drums of cyclosarin...a nerve agent. NEarby were missiles, lab and chemical gear.(http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/iraq/2004-01-11-iraq-shells_x.htm) (http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0304/27/bn.02.html)

(Sorry, but you’re a Newbie posting a vanity, and we are requited to post IBTZ)
Now carry on.
You would NOT believe how a simple search on Josef Goebbels turns up millions of links to GWB.
Who are these people going to hate a year from now?
Great minds. ;-D
Thanks for posting this!
Were you previously banned? :^>
That headline is the Dim strategy for sliming Republicans for the past 35+ years. Whitewater was far more criminal than Watergate.
And here’s the problem. We never refuted them. If you let someone get away with telling a lie, they’re going to keep telling it.
“Everyone knew they had WMD”. Well not quite. Inspectors didn’t.
I don’t really agree with this post.
I was really amazed by what looked to be a list of articles showing actual proof we found WMDs. I couldnt believe that with so much to gain/lose this would be the common “myth.”
When I actually investigated the cases listed here, it turns out that most of these articles were quietly refuted after the fact.
This link goes to one example. The Polish army thought they had found sarin and mustard gas shells and it is actually the U.S. army who do the testing and admit there were no chemicals.
Rebel, I don’t know how much you researched these posts but I’m sure you’ll agree on further investigation that most of these “finds” turned out to be dead ends. Oh well.
