What I have feared is that the Iraqis removd or failed to mark their chemical weapons adequately.
Remember the Sarin and Mustard gas shells 2 years ago?
ANY idiot knows you have to make them spin to mix the chemicals, so, to use them as a roadside bomb almost makes them inert from that perspective.
So, I cna easily imagine that Saddam's people removed the markings from the shells or shell containers that identified these weapons and that people are suing them soon enoug not knowing what is in them.
OR, they did it deliberately.
50/50 chance either way.
Yes, but that was not news back then. Everyone at the networks were in denial.
