This particular Yellowcake was all pre-1991.
“This particular Yellowcake was all pre-1991.”
Who the hell cares. The article goes on to say that the removal was done in secret given the U.S. “worried that the cache would fall into the hands of insurgents or Shiites hoping to advance Iran’s alleged nuclear ambitions”.
So Hussein had 550 tons of material that could “also be enriched for use in reactors and, at higher levels, weapons”, 550 tons of it, and we are repeatedly told that they had no WMD.
Something really stinks in this whole thing.
I couldn’t care less that the Russian nuclear arsenal and the materials and program were all pre-1991 either, they remain a huge issue for the world to be concerned about. What the hell difference does it make WHEN Hussein first secured this material, the facts are HE HAD IT and he could have used it for a nuclear program. Nice try, pal.
How about a bit o documentation for your Yellow Cake claims?
IMO this is only the tip of the iceberg re: GD Saddam’s ability to constitute WMD...he was a danger when Israel bombed his nuke plant, when he invaded Kuwait, suborned the UN inspections, gassed the Kurds, etc. Commonsense says there is a lot more to this and we will find out one way or another...see Bekaa Valley & Syria.
How do you know that and can you prove it?
Why didn’t the UN remove it from Iraq like the US has?
