Posted on 05/01/2006 1:05:30 PM PDT by jveritas
Saddam Regime Document CMPC-2003-016083 dated in 2001 contains a series of Top Secret memos that address the production of Nerve Gas Detectors which was prohibited by the United Nations resolutions concerning Iraq according to the document itself. The importance of the production of the Nerve Gas Detector is shown by the top secret letters exchange between the Presidential Office and the head of the Iraqi Military Industrialization Commission (M.I.C). This documents is yet another indication that Saddam Regime never stopped his WMD programs, and the nerve Gas Detector which some can see it a defensive in nature is not to be considered so when it comes to Saddam Regime, everything has an offensive and aggressive use.

Now on page 71 of the document there is a section that mentions that the production of Nerve Gas Detectors is PROHIBITED
Beginning of Partial Translation of page 71
Based on what is in the letter of the respected Presidential Secretariat (Top Secret) aa/4 on 22/1/2001 followed by the Top Secret letter of (M.I.C) 2/4/44 on 13/1/2001 and after review of the technical report the commission recommend the following:
1. Consider it a work that reach level of Invention Works because it replace the need that occur to the Russian equipment that has an expired efficiency and that exist in the storages of the Chemical Class, and it is a PROHIBITED EQUIPMENT where the price of the effective material in it can reach 51,000 Dollars
End of partial translation of page 71.
Thanks for the clarification jveritas. I just wanted to make sure and to explore all possibilities for the usage of the word.
Am I correct in understanding that they had to have banned nerve agents to test the equipment?
More good work jveritas, you've been doing great on the radio programs too.
Our #1 email address is no longer here, Tony Snow. Congratulations to him on his new position as White House Press Secretary.

Thanks for the ping.
Jveritas keeps weaving the trap bigger and bigger for Saddam and his liberal friends in America.
Thank you jazusamo.
I think you are 100% correct.
A little digging around on the net to see exactly what "expired efficiency" had to do with a Russian nerve agent detector.
"the Czechs indicated that they had to bury about 260 expired GSP-11 indicator charges out of the 350 sent to the Gulf. Other veterans indicated they did not trust the indicator charges because they had been stored in the heat and there was no way to check their condition."
So it looks like the Iraqis were replacing the Russian made GSP-11 chemical detector.
I wish we could have an annual freeper award; you would surely win. Hands down. Thanks again so much, jveritas, for all your hard work.
I've sent this to my e-mail and will send to my Senators with a little note.
Probably, but most nerve agents are not that difficult to make in small amounts.
I also don't understand why the detectors would be banned. Many nations, particular the Germans and Poles, have CBW detection gear, but do not have any CBW weapons of their own.
We have them as well, and no longer have the weapons themselves.
Unless these aren't detectors in the sense that I'm thinking of, as much as sensors required to monitor and control the production of nerve gas and/or other CBW agents.
look for anything about filters in their armored vehicles... the proof that the soviets planned to use Bio/Chem weapons was that all their tracks had filters designed to filter out THEIR OWN STUFF more than anything else.
Make sure you let us know when you are going to be on a talk show.
Is it possible that these detectors were aimed at being ready should Iran develop and use nerve gas against Saddam's regime? Yes ...
Anything is possible. Is it probable? No.
JV! Once again I bow before you in Gratitude! Thank you for what you are doing!
Could you explain why it is not probable? Every possibility must be explored. Is there a reason that you gave a firm NO?
Thank you for all your hard work in sifting through and translating Saddam regime documents and then posting those translations here on FR for all to read. God Bless you.
Thank you very much for all your support. The important thing is to have the truth out about these documents.
Thank you Peach :)
In Saddam world, there is nothing for defensive purposes, it is only for aggression.
Do you believe that Saddam would have waited for the Iranians to ave Chemical Weapons and he does not? He understand very well that Chemical Weapons are what saved his regime in the Iraq-Iran war, and that is why he was always obsessed in having them.
