Skip to comments.Freeper exclusive: Weapons cache demolition causes many to be sick from exposure in Baghdad
Posted on 11/16/2006 4:54:12 PM PST by RaceBannon
I just received a private e-mail from someone I know from a Marine website who has family in Iraq. There has been a weapons cache explosion that caused many, hundreds of people to be exposed to some chemical that was present in the weapons.
It takes two chemicals mixed together to activate the agent. That is why the comment about the rounds needing to spin is about. The chemicals are designed to be stored until needed. Military stockpiles of weapons are designed to function when needed.
Sorry but I think an I-told-you-so is VERY MUCH in order. The Democrats called the President a liar and used this accusation to great effect to cripple the war effort by undermining public support for it. Anything that would reveal (truthfully and justly -- no dirty tricks) to the general wobbly swing voter the Democratic Party's terminal unseriousness on foreign policy/use of force is CRUCIAL to finding a way to win.
Dammit! If President Bush knew there were such things in Iraq, he should have told us!
More evidence that there were, and still are, WMD in Iraq.
Why couldn't they have had this little accident 2 weeks ago?!?
That's right, mushroom clouds mean nothing. We used to get really nice one when EODT would blow munitions every afternoon. When the sun was setting sometimes the cloud would have nice red and rose hues to it!
My apologies to you. That came off pretty bad on my part given a second look.
Hell, someday I hope to have his credibility here.
Again, my apologies for that.
Come on. This is America. You can sue for any reason you want. The question as always is whether you will win.
Attitudes like that do not help the war effort. Bottom-line is that we have a war to win and playing the "there really were WMD" in Iraq game is distracting from that effort.
I agree with you.
The e-mail says they heard the information yesterday morning.
It doesn't take that long for word to get out.
Be careful what you wish for.
And if so, why is it bolded, colored, and made to appear as original text?
If not, is it original text from 1st source?
Pardon me! but We have NOT been loosing the War, except in the MSM and with the democrats. You might want to think about all that has happened that is positive. Also, just for a second think about all the acts of terror prior to 9-11 here and how bin Laden in the 90s said We were a nation of cowards. The truth comes out over time.
I haven;t heard anything. Ping me if something further develops.
True, but did we not here complaints that the old WMD shells found in Iraq, were, well, old, and not that much of a threat. At least that was the complaints from the left, and as always they are taken with a grain of salt. I thought their theory was that separate agents could degrade and not fully mix or not fully activate.
I'll go you one better. If Saddam was a Nazi or other white supremacist, the Democrats would be looking to impeach Bush because he was 'dragging his feet' in the search for them and hadn't found them yet. (Or if he had found some, the charge would be that he hadn't found them ALL.)
"We know the weapons are there! They haven't searched every weapons cache, what's taking so long? Have we learned nothing from the Holocaust? Bush is just trying to protect his Nazi buddies so he can use these weapons in gas chambers on gays and free thinkers and anyone else he deems a subversive!"
Are we waiting on a Kinkos in Abilene?
Four months later, the people in Southern Japan saw even larger mushroom clouds.
depends on how hot the explosion was, burning is the accepted method of disposing of these weapons
It is POSSIBLE that the explosion obliterated most of the agents and left just noxious materials behind
