No idea whether there is any credence to this story whatsoever. Like many here I am extremely dubious too. On the other hand, if an Iraqi newspaper is reporting this and no-one in the media is picking it up think it should be posted on free republic for us to chew over.

I'm sure they already had it written down before we ever went to war.

WMD = stock pile = dismantled components = buried in the sand = not an imminent threat

Empty bombs are a dime a dozen. You don't just pour a little plutonium into them to make a nuke. It's a lot tougher than that.

I've been saying for months now that the discovery of WMDs will become publicized right before or during the first couple days of the Democrat Convention.

Wait a few more days and lets see how it pans out.

If its verified, the bottom has dropped out of the Left's case against the Iraq War. We'll see John F*ckin' do another of his famous patented flip-flops: "I was against it before I heard there was a good reason to be for it. Never mind what I and my running mate said on 60 Minutes."

Sure, I have no problem chewing it over, as you say. And thank you for posting and translating it. It is interesting. I just don't want people to get their hopes up, because every time we think we've found "IT," we haven't.

This could be "IT," but I'm not about to hold my breath.

If you put two of the nukes on the bottom and then very carefully placed the third on top of the first two; you could call it a stock pile.

Yes it seems that they are playing both sides of the fence. The UN Arms (and Legs) Inspectors are being invited back in (despite leaks notifying Iraq before searches were done).

The claim is being made that the UN inspectors are more qualified than the US coalition troops/inspectors.

Then there is the followup that this is just so that they can conclude their report (like they don't even plan to look hard).

We haven't found large stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction. Then again we haven't found Osama Bin Laden, the source of the anthrax, or a number of other things. Even the Olympic bomber was not found for several years.

It would be foolish to conclude that these things "did not exist" because we did not find them.

You are quite right.

If it is true we will have been some of the first to have heard it - thanks to your post.

If it is not true we will have learned some more re the "fog of news & media".

I don't know about this story, may be just some place that nuclear bombs were researched etc. In any case, we need to stop focusing on the WMD as THE reason Iraq's regime of Saddam was removed. The WMD was just one reason. The main reason was that Iraq was a terrorist state and this was a war on terrorism. It was a terrorist state after 9/11 and before 9/11. It funded terrorists, harbored them, and among all the terror regimes of the world was the most pressing to remove based on its history of agression and use of terrorism. The liberation of Iraqi citizens by the US was good, but it was not a reason. It was an end result which occurs with the removal of any tyrannical regime.

People say Iraq was no threat. Ask them if they thought Afghanistan was a threat on 9/10 and they would probably say no. But the fact is the conditions in Afghanistan and Iraq were the same. Both were regimes which could harbor such terror groups as Al Queda and both supported and funded terrorism. Both had dictatorships, had militant Islamic ideology rampant in their countries, etc. Saddam may have had nothing to do with 9/11 but it misses the point. This US led war is not to bring all those responsible for 9/11 to justice, though it is part of it. It is a war on terrorism, all terrorism and the regimes which harbor, sponsor or fund it. Regimes like the PA, Saudi Arabian regime, Syria, Iran, Lebanon - all those which are terror regimes. Let's not forget the North Korean terrorist regime as well of course. All these regimes will have to be removed sooner or later, using all means possible, not just military. The USSR commie regime was brought down without the US going to war against Moscow literally, but by the US going against the idea of communism, painting it rightfully so as satanic, funding means that allowed the flow of freedom loving information in to the eastern part of europe and into asia.

In the long run, which the US is finding out in Iraq, it must shift the war on terrorism to a war on an idea - militant Islam which uses terrorism as a tool. The US may kill/capture terrorists, but the factories of death (such as schools, mosques, newspapers, radio, governments) will continue to pump more out. These must be drained. But as of now, the US and most of the world have political correctness holding them hostage. This will cost more lives and surely more 9/11s.

Well, a few things jump out. First of all, there are what, hundreds of papers in Iraq? Most of them seem to be sensational conspiracy rags with less truth than the Weekly World News or a Michael Moore movie. This paper, however, seems rather simple and non-sensational; just the facts, maam. Secondly, the paper is not reporting this nuke story to be true or that the Iraqi government is saying it's true, but that "sources in the Interior ministry...refused to comment on news reports..." On the other hand, if it were just a wild, unfounded rumor one would think they would say there is no truth to the rumor...

Saddam was trying to obtain weapons of mass destruction.

If a person TRIES to hire a hitman, they are still tried for attempted murder even if the hitman never takes the job.
