Would I be correct in assuming that some of these WMD’s were the non existent ones that Saddam didn’t ship off before we went into Iraq?

Sadam sent Syria everything he had before we invaded. One of the greatest mobilizations in history because they only people who knew about were those willing to listen to sources who knew what they were really talking about.

It’s the old “find the pea under the shell” game....except in the ME, instead of 3 shells, there are like 20 shells.

Hey Texas,
Got a question for ya.
Wasn’t it reported (many times many ways ) that Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction were spirited out of Iraq and in to the Bekaa Valley by a berry berry large Russian convoy?
D.I.A. has real good film of this.

This sounds like part of Obama’s “Winning The Future” theme. “Hey, all of you anti-American extremists in the area, if Assad falls, make sure that you grab his WMD stockpiles!” WTF?

Syrian WMDs: Maybe this will bring about the long ago prophesied doom of Damascus, which has never been fulfilled, spoken of by Isaiah.

Even if we found a mountain of WMD's with "Made in Iraq" stamped on them it wouldn't vindicate GWB... or at least the left would never admit it.

The gigantic chemical weapons production program Syria has had for decades.

How silly, what could they have moved overnight?

Oh wait you mean they had six months to do that? Who knew? </sarcasm>

I’ve read in serveral reports that just prior to the invasion a convoy of hundreds of mostly russian vehicles were taransporting EVERYTHI”NG out of Iraq. Including the reported bio units.
They all went to Syria. Asaad has an agreement with russia that the russians will back his murdering ass.
Good luck with that when his own people kill hims and his family, friends, associates, dogs,cats.Etc.

“And they came from where?”

Exactly.

I remember hearing about a chemical attack inside Jordan, by extremists, that had originated from Syria, in and about in 2004, and the unique chemical make-up of the chemicals was known to have the same fingerprint as sampled in Iraq, of which, of course, we all know, the consensus is clear, Iraq had no WMD’s.
