First of all, I didn´t say that the governments knew of these activities. I just say, that they have to fight Saddam.
"They were trying to clandestinely build a counterforce to US domination."
Nonsense, these folks wanted to make money regardless whom they were delivering dangerous materials. And they deserve to go to jail for that!

(You have (had) G. Bush, J. Cash, B. Hope & S. Wonder - we have Schröder: no cash, no hope, no wonder)
You left out the part about Nahe & Mosel wines. :>)
In any case, you're being naive. Governments don't just let these things happen. They have purposes for them. You can't possibly believe that companies were selling these dangerous products to the Iraqis and your government didn't know about it. If they knew about it, then why did they let it go forward? It's more than just money for the economy, my friend. They knew it would seriously damage relations with the U.S. if it became public.
Just allow yourself for one moment to imagine: If there were a purpose for Germany to allow WMD sales to Iraq, what would that purpose be?

(Babylon - you have been weighed in the balance and been found wanting.)
Michael, you know that the BND has given their info. to the Government and such to Schroeder himself.
