Okay, this isn't breaking on any of the US wires here, but if you can read Dutch, feel free to translate for the rest of us. A Dutch friend is visiting and checked in on his morning news and found this. It's all over the headlines in the Netherlands.

Dutch friend is translating: potential "grenades" in this case means artillery shells. Evidently found buried in "As Samawah".

Dutch marines in Iraq have found grenades of which contents are not clear. The Minister of Defense in Den Haag doesn't discount chem or bio content. If it turns out that way, signals first discovery of WMD. A dozen artillery shells found on 8 October in province of As Samawah, in Dutch operations area. According to spokesman, the grenades appeared different than normal and the contents are unclear.

According to current procedures, the British were notified and the shells remain buried. British officials will investigate the exact contents of the shells.

Wait until the egg hatches to see if it is a rooster or not. The title for this article is premature.

Biologically-loaded chemical shells, it seems to say. What does this mean?

It means they are investigating. They are shells, not grenades. The web translators don't work -- I have a Dutch speaking person here who is trying to translate what he's seeing on Dutch tv and web. The story hasn't been updated in an hour.

All it means is they found something of interest.

Anyway, Knighthawk,
