Instructions contained directions for troops to change to civilian clothing and then approach coalition forces with their supplied WMD.

Well, I guess France has to join our side, then. Watch the weasels backpedal out of this one. Watch the "peace" protests dwither away.

Brain dead here. Is anthrax spread person to person, or do you have to come into contact with the powder?

This was a live videophone report from Arnot after returning from picking up 2 US casualties who lost limbs from one of the boobytrap mines along the roads leading north to / from Basra and the medivac responded under fire and rescued our guys & rushed them to medical support, saving their lives.

Iraq doesn't have anthrax. Remember? The UN said so.

This is a dastardly tactic! "Surrender" with your envelop full of the "White Powder" and then nail the troopers who are attempting to safely take you prisoner. An incident like that can endanger Iraqi troops everywhere.

If this turns out to be anthrax, that means there's a quantity in excess of 8499 liters still unaccounted for.

Hmmm.

If they are doing this on any general scale, it constitutes an attack with WMD's against our forces. Look out, things will reatchet up.

It also is an abject punctuation for all the world to see regarding the justness and corectness of our cause.

... as if that wan't already obvious to the sincere in heart.

How in the hell are we going to handle such finds in a way that convinces fair-minded people that we didn't plant or fake this when the "international community," that purports to be an "independent judge" of us, has their fingers all over this?

What a mess.

Nope, it's the same method as Al Queda: use civilians or people pretending to be civilians, pretending to be peaceful, to dump chemicals on the enemy. Our troops should be wary of all of the Iraqis who "surrender," or who may pretend to be overjoyed citizens.

If true, this is WMD and escalates the conflict. There may yet be a UN resolution in support of the US... irrelevant as it will be.

This is BIG news.

Much more like this to come...WMD is no myth, au contraire, Pierre, it's fact.

Anxious to see Geraldo give us a tour of an underground nuke lab.

Really want to see Ollie open the gates to Salman Pak, check out that airliner and other relics of Evil.

We're giving the world a lesson in payback.

That's one of the ironic & unexpected benefits of having these embedded reporters; there are some assigned to the special forces dedicated to locating WMD.

Not too many "fair-minded" people left on the other side, I'm afraid. They are simply not going to believe anything that supports the US/British claims and thwarts their worldview.
