There is plenty of evidences that the Saddam's WMDS were moved to Lebanon and Syria during the Spring of 2003. There are even videos of propaganda showing the long-range missiles during military parade in Baghdad in 2002. (1)
A Syrian dissents and a lot of intelligence shows those WMDs have been buried in 6 meters large 35 meters deep holes in the Bekaa Valley, north-east of Lebanon, then occupied by Syria.
Today, the story of the Iraqi WMDs, which is vehemently denied by the stupid MSM, is becoming really alarming.
A deputy of the foreign ministry of Defense of Syria told an Israeli press agency that the next coming war between Israel and Syria will not be conventional but will see the use of long-range missiles against civilian targets and insurgency at the border against the army. (2)
There are strong evidences that the Syrian army spent time to meet with Iranian and Hezbullah officials during April, June and July 2007 - actually, they are meeting these days.
There will be a war between Israel and Syria, and probably between Syria allied with Hamas and Hebullah with the masterminding of Iran against an isolated Israel. Soon.
During the War of the 2006 Summer, the Israelis not only bombed the south of Lebanon and the big cities, but also the valley of the Bekaa. They were targeting the Iraqi WMDs. (3)
An israeli intelligence officer told an israeli gvt committee in 2003 that the Israeli's intelligence community believed the Iraqi WMDs had been transferred to Syria.
TODAY, an alarming report says the Syrians have RE-OCCUPIED Lebanon, and especially the Valley of the Bekaa close to the border. (4)
They are supplying with the Iraqi WMDs for a coming war, soon.
You don't believe that Saddam had WMDs ? Check the news in the coming weeks. The Israelis will be bombed with them.
The Israeli official speaking about the Saddam’s WMDs going to Syria
Assad will do this... If he wants Damascus destroyed and his country taken over by the US.
They had best have their nuclear bomb shelters stocked up before using WMDs on Israel.
Syria would become “radiant” if they were to do something so stupid.
Anybody notice there’s been next to no discussion of this possibility (transference of WMDs by Saddam) in our media?
Why is that do you suppose? If true, might it justify the invasion of Iraq?
Can’t have that, can we liberal media?
You are talking about WMDs as if it was only nuclear.
The US forces in Iraq have already been targeted with WMDs :
I don’t think Syria has the guts. They know full well what would await them should they ever dare to use WMD’s on Israel.
This is news?
The real story is that we haven’t done more about it, and it seems that europe still doesn’t want anything about it,...”it” being WMD proliferation.
The MSM is running for one thing : the ‘08 presidential election.
Terrorists can destroy the Empire State Building, it will only be discussed on the page 37 of the NY Times.
Already happenned with the JFK foiled plot.
The MSMS is not engaged in the WoT.
Check THIS :
Syria sees the next war with Israel as involving missile attacks on civilian infrastructure and front-line guerilla warfare, an anonymous senior official in the Syrian Ministry of Defense told Defense News Weekly, in an interview appearing Monday. Syria prefers to avoid a direct, “classic” confrontation with Israel, he said. Instead, the next war will involve Katyusha rocket and ballistic missiles that will target strategic points in Israel, especially civilian infrastructure.
The official said that the war will not be limited to a single strike, but will be protracted in nature. “This will be a war of attrition, which the Israelis are not good at,” he explained. The conflict, he said, “will be more like a war between cities than a war on the battlefield.”
If Syria or their proxies decide to commit suicide by using them against Isreal the whole world will Shocked!Shocked!
I think Russia came and picked up the WMDs.
That’s where they came from in the first place.
Plus I don’t think Saddam wanted his WMDs to fall into the hands of the very enemies he had them to use against. Lebanon is controlled by Syria and Hezbollah, Iran’s foreign legion. These are near the very bottom of the list of countries that Saddam wanted to get their hands on his WMDs.
This is all crazy talk. Everyone knows that Saddam didn’t have WMD’s. He was a peaceful man. As you know, Islam is the religion of peace.
Bush really dropped the ball essentially agreeing with the MSM that there really were no WMDs to be found in Iraq.
Saddam sent his planes to... Iran during the Gulf war. Only 3 years after the bloody Iran-Iraq war.
When it comes about the US and Israel, even Indonesians could join Saudis to do war.
They don’t care. I have been to Palestine recently :
The people there, who are in the epicenter of modern terrorism, could host everyone, from peruvian drugs dealers to russian mob, just to get money and weapons to kill Jews.
Their hatred toward us can fill all the gaps.
I guess it really doesn't matter much where they came from - if the Syrians go that route this is going to get very nasty very quickly.
If Syria used Saddam’s WMDs, then the dimwitted liberals and MSM would all say “see, we told you that you invaded the wrong country!”
They’d never accept that they were the same WMDs.
But of course Bush is in no rush to prove he didn’t “lie” by declaring the WMDs were carted off while he played footsie in the UN for 18th months. He’d rather people believe there were no WMDs after all than for them to realize he totally dropped the ball and they’re probably in the hands of terrorists now.
But now they have their good buddy Iran backing them. That could give them the guts to go ahead with a strike. I believe they will strike Israel. But not before Iran is ready, and tells them to.
Iran is orchestrating the dance now. When they are ready, things will happen. No one is stopping them. They are emboldened. And as long as the US, Europe, and most other nations continue to try Talks. Well, that just works out better for them, doesn’t it?
Someday we are going to have to Dance with them. It is too bad we are leaving the dance card up to them. I think a dance sooner, rather than later, is in our best interests.
I think we need to drop a Texas Two Step on em real soon.
If they do - then all I’ll say is, Isaiah 17.
Well worded, since the MSM and the left always accuse President Bush of lacking curiosity!
” Iraqi WMD Mystery Solved “ —
That picture still puzzles me. The plane is not even covered in plastic to keep the sand out. It seems it wasn’t buried to be preserved, so why bother?
One would think that if this Administration was really serious about this “war on terror” they’d be going after Saudi funded Wahhabist Mosques and Islamic schools proliferating all over the US and the West.
But alas, they are not, and instead go after a SECULAR thug in Saddam Hussein.
This isn't a question of guts. The question is whether this particular subset of Arabs is stupid or not. The question then becomes, how many Israelis need to get killed before Israel reacts fully, and will said reaction come in time to prevent even more Israeli deaths?
That’s not Sumerian.
That’s a Decepticon!
Yes, to me that is his single biggest mistake in his entire presidency. It is utterly mystifying to me how he never stood up on this issue.
“This will be a war of attrition, which the Israelis are not good at, “
He’d better keep his mouth shut, the Isreali’s could very well adjust or decide that such a protracted missile attack on its soil is the same as having attacks of wmd’s on its soil and release nukes any-way.
Let’s see, a blizzard of missiles vs a few gas attacks...no difference I can see!
Small point: It’s not that the MSM has vehemitly denied the WMD moved to Syria; the MSM completely ignored the story.
I’ve never seen a mention of it in the drive bys.
On June 9th , the UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission briefed the Security Council about the export of Iraqi WMD, missile and nuclear components shipped out of Iraq before, during and after the invasion. As reported by MENL news service, UNMOVIC acting executive chairman Demetrius Perricos told the Council, "The removal of these materials from Iraq raises concerns with regard to proliferation risks," and said inspectors found Iraqi WMD and missile components shipped abroad that still contained UN inspection tags.
The World Tribune reported on Perricos's briefing. "He said the Iraqi facilities were dismantled and sent both to Europe and around the Middle East at the rate of about 1,000 tons of metal a month... The Baghdad missile site contained a range of WMD and dual-use components, UN officials said. They included missile components, reactor vessel and fermenters ... required for the production of chemical and biological warheads. 'It raises the question of what happened to the dual-use equipment, where is it now and what is it being used for,' Perricos's spokesman, said. 'You can make all kinds of pharmaceutical and medicinal products with a fermenter. You can also use it to breed anthrax.'"
Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. James Clapper, head of the National Imagery and Mapping Agency, said vehicle traffic photographed by U.S. spy satellites indicated that material and documents related to the arms programs were shipped to Syria."
"Last month Moshe Yaalon, who was Israel's top general at the time, said Iraq transported WMD to Syria six weeks before Operation Iraqi Freedom began.
Last March, John A. Shaw, a former U.S. deputy undersecretary of defense for international technology security, said Russian Spetsnaz units moved WMD to Syria and Lebanon's Bekaa Valley.
"While in Iraq I received information from several sources naming the exact Russian units, what they took and where they took both WMD materials and conventional explosives," Mr. Shaw told NewsMax reporter Charles Smith.
Retired Marine Lt. Gen. Michael DeLong was deputy commander of Central Command during Operation Iraqi Freedom. In September 2004, he told WABC radio that "I do know for a fact that some of those weapons went into Syria, Lebanon and Iran."
In January 2004, David Kay, the first head of the Iraq Survey Group which conducted the search for Saddam's WMD, told a British newspaper there was evidence unspecified materials had been moved to Syria from Iraq shortly before the war.
"We know from some of the interrogations of former Iraqi officials that a lot of material went to Syria before the war, including some components of Saddam's WMD program," Mr. Kay told the Sunday Telegraph.
Also that month, Nizar Nayuf, a Syrian journalist who defected to an undisclosed European country, told a Dutch newspaper he knew of three sites where Iraq's WMD was being kept. They were the town of al Baida near the city of Hama in northern Syria; the Syrian air force base near the village of Tal Snan, and the city of Sjinsar on the border with Lebanon.
In an addendum to his final report last April, Charles Duelfer, who succeeded David Kay as head of the Iraq Survey Group, said he couldn't rule out a transfer of WMD from Iraq to Syria.
"There was evidence of a discussion of possible WMD collaboration initiated by a Syrian security officer, and ISG received information about movement of material out of Iraq, including the possibility that WMD was involved. In the judgment of the working group, these reports were sufficiently credible to merit further investigation," Mr. Duelfer said."
"The short answer to the question of where the WMD Saddam bought from the Russians went was that they went to Syria and Lebanon," former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense John A. Shaw told an audience Saturday at a privately sponsored "Intelligence Summit" in Alexandria, Va. (www.intelligencesummit.org).
"We are not talking about a large stockpile of weapons," he said. "But we know from some of the interrogations of former Iraqi officials that a lot of material went to Syria before the war, including some components of Saddam's WMD programme. Precisely what went to Syria, and what has happened to it, is a major issue that needs to be resolved."
"Two days before the war, on March 17th, we saw through multiple intelligence channels - both human intelligence and techinical (satellite,eavesdrop) intelligence - large caravans of people and things, including some of the top 55 Iraqis, going to Syria."

Already happenned with the JFK foiled plot.
I was in Viet Nam when the news of the JFK ‘plot’ came out, and I heard all about it from the MSM. Maybe you just don’t get that channel in France?
There is very little this Administration has stood up for. That’s why we have so many morons in Congress via the last election. Having no gonads, no spine, no guts begets Liberal morons. Liberals are anti-American, anti-military cowards who live in a dream world created by their mental disorders.
If Syria does this then they need to understand that their country will no longer exist.
Those three Syrian piles of WMD are a huge threat to the regions aquifers if the should ever be blown up.
...As if Syria gets to decide if it's protracted. Israel can end it in a flash anytime they want to.
Syrians are snorting too much coke and smoking the opium bong. Isreal can flatten Syrian cities a lot quicker and efficiently than Syria could ever hope to.
Or they can starve them out. First strike, take out all electrical power and airports, bridges and roads out of Syria. Then just hammer away at targets of interest day and night from the air until Syria is no more.
Me too. Maybe it was done in a hurry, and the commander didn't think it through.
I’m really puzzled by that and his whole turn the other cheek unresponsiveness. Never thought I’d see us fight another war where the enemies logistics are out of bounds yet routinely used to kill us.
I agree, it was a huge mistake both factually and politically.
There has been more than ample evidence leaked to support the claim that they were shipped out to the Bekaa valley.
Bush handed the Dems there favorite talking point and now anytime someone claims otherwise, WMD-believers are sneered at.
It’s more taboo than believing the US caused 9/11.
Many un-informed kooks in America thanks to the drive-by media.
