SOUTH OF BAGHDAD In a valley sculpted by man, between the palms and roses, lies a vast marble and steel city known as Al-Tuwaitha.

In the suburbs about 18 miles south of the capital's suburbs, this city comprises nearly 100 buildings workshops, laboratories, cooling towers, nuclear reactors, libraries and barracks that belong to the Iraqi Atomic Energy Commission.

First, I hope the Marines were issued the M99A2 Lead-Lined jockstrap before entering this place. Sheesh!

Second, tell me again why Iraq, with #2 oil reserves on the planet, needs a nuclear reactor?

If this true, we should round up all of those who have backed the regime of Soddomite from DC (Rats in Congress to the West Coast, Michael Moore and the violent protestors).

Then, we can send them to this hell on earth to decontaminate the area. Scott Ritter, Michael Moore, the Follywood maggots, the Da$$hole and Kerry should be the first on this one way trip!

I hope those guys are properly protected. That sounds like very nasty levels of radiation in there.

The question will be, "How close was Saddam to a nuke?" If the answer is, "A few months," then we should go slap Chirac and the "more inspections" loonies silly.

"On a mantle, folded under documents, a Christmas card never sent. On the front is a dove, its wings the ellipses of the atom, tinged in orange, yellow and green. Under it, a tiger, facing backward, its body a swirl of Arabic letters. Inside the card: "Rights of Third World Peoples To Alternate Energy Sources For the Future Development of Their Environment and Culture."

The next page: "Let Us Hope This New Year Will Be a Year of Peace and Justice and With All Good Wishes for Christmas and the New Year." Signed, Iraqi Atomic Energy Commission. Baghdad.
"

Can someone explain all the references to Christmas. These people don't celebrate Christmas. Thoughts?

They may have purposely let a reactor failure, making the site difficult to impossible to inspect.
