16.52 The remaining chemical weapons from Saddam Hussein's regime are stored in two sealed bunkers, both located at the Al Muthanna Chemicals Weapons Complex, a large site in the western desert some 80km north west of Baghdad.
This was the principal manufacturing plant for both chemical agents and munitions during Saddam Husseins rule.
Thousands of tonnes of chemical weapons were produced, stored and deployed by the Saddam Hussein regime. Iraq used these weapons during the Iran - Iraq War (1980 to 1988) and against the Kurds in Halabja in 1988.

Break out another red line, Barkey.
The ones that didn’t exist, I suppose....
But I thought he didn’t have any????
So these extremists found the WMDs that Bush couldn’t leave it to Obama to supoport these “Weapons Inspectors” who are friendly and nice...
And why are they still there at all?
So they didn’t send them to Syria?
Very confusing, isn’t it?
Is this why Obama is having a quick rushed Press Conf in 25 minutes.......
Biden says, “It’s a big ******* deal.
Mebbe Syria gave ‘em back after we left, since I always figured that was where they went in the time leading up to our very clearly telegraphed arrival : /
I never did get the whole, tell everyone when you are coming and when you are leaving thing : |
Maybe ISIS can finally get rid of the old stockpiles by using them on the Iranian invaders ...
But ... but ... Saddam had no WMDs! Therefore, there can be no chemical weapons to seize. Those bunkers must either not exist or they’re stocked with whipped cream and peanut butter.
Saddam Hussein sends a message to everyone, saying, “Do you miss me yet?!” ... :-) ...
Media to report WMDs found in 100,000, 99,999, 99,998... Years.
Why oh why do they leave this crap lying around in the middle of a big ole rat infested terrorist desert....Honestly, have they no brains.
And baby milk!
But...but...but... there were NO WMD’s in Iraq?
Chemical weapons produced at the Al Muthanna facility, which Isis today seized, are believed to have included mustard gas, Sarin, Tabun, and VX.
