It's an SA-2 Guideline. This is a surface to air missile of Russian origin. This is the same type of missile used to shoot down Gary Powers in 1960.

"IMO it appears to be a SA-2 surface to air, the 'Flying Telephone Pole' of Viet Nam. Not a proscribed weapon."

I believe that missile's an Al-Samoud. The Al-Samoud is a conversion of the SA-2 to a surface-to-surface role. Among other changes, it has a bigger rocket engine and smaller control surfaces (since it doesn't need to maneuver in flight as much as a SAM), both of which seem to be apparent in that video. The Al-Samoud, of course, is the proscribed missile Hans Blix believed Saddam was destroying.

I believe one of the mobile testing units is from a company by the name of CEPHEID INC

Cepheid is a developer, manufacturer and marketer of fully integrated systems that automate and accelerate biological testing. Based on microfluidic and microelectronic technologies, the Company's systems analyze complex biological samples in disposable cartridges that automatically perform all of the steps that are associated with molecular biological procedures. The Company is initially focused on the detection and analysis of nucleic acids, such as deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), in samples such as blood, urine, cell cultures, food and industrial air and water. The Company is developing two families of products, the Smart Cycler and GeneXpert families, that incorporate its core technologies. The Company's I-CORE module is a low-cost, self-contained instrument for performing and continuously monitoring chemical reactions. Each module can optically measure up to four separate reactions.

God Bless our Troops!

The strange thing is, none of the other cable news stations or radio stations (in L.A. area) have mentioned this story. Yet I saw Dr. Bob Arnot on MSNBC early this morning (Pacific time) when he first did this report. At the time there was loud aircraft noise and Arnot could barely be heard. They went back to him later in the morning when things where quieter where he is, and he repeated the story. Seems to me this should be the biggest story of the day, yet no one else has mentioned it.

While the Al-Samoud uses a modified SA-2 engine the mislle itself is not a conversion. http://www.fas.org/nuke/guide/iraq/missile/ababil.htm

Dr. Bob Arnot, reporting for MSNBC by videophone from Iraq, where he is embedded with a United States military unit, stated this live early this morning Pacific time. An Iraqi soldier was taken into custody. In the truck he was driving, there was an envelope with suspicious traces of what might be anthrax. The envelope was sent to the appropriate support groups for testing. Also in the truck was written instructions as to how to use the anthrax as a weapon.

Breaking: Bob Arnot of NBC News reports coalition forces have captured an Iraqi soldier
who was found to have an envelope with a suspicious powder, presumably anthrax,
and instructions on how to kill coalition soldiers using it


O. Before you do anything, take the antibiotic tablets so the powder in the envelope/vial, etc.
can't harm you.
1. "Surrender"
2. If the American/UK soldier(s) who detain you are not observent enough to remove
the vial/envelope from your person...try to wait until a number of them are gathered
near to you.
3. Hide the vial (with top open) in your hands and pretend to sneeze in their direction.
Do this in the lowest light possible so that the Americans will only
think they have been "dusted" by a bit of sand.

If they've not taken any antibiotics, they'll be sick in a couple of days.
And dead in a week if their doctors botch the diagnosis.

After extensive searching I was not able to find any reports that verify this story.

Do you have a link?

Jay, ol'buddy, don't you believe television anymore? How about the body counts at the supposed peace demonstrations? Do you believe them?

I don't believe them, but it would appear that some folks lack the critical thinking capacity to take anything that's broadcast as Gospel Truth.

Once upon a time in a nice little forest, there lived an orphaned bunny and an orphaned snake. By a surprising coincidence, both were blind from birth. One day, the bunny was hopping through the forest, and the snake was slithering through the forest,when the bunny tripped over the snake and fell down. This, of course, knocked the snake about quite a bit. "Oh, my," said the bunny, "I'm terribly sorry. I didn't mean to hurt you. I've been blind since birth, so, I can't see where I'm going. In fact, since I'm also an orphan, I don't even know what I am." "It's quite OK," replied the snake. "Actually, my story is much the same as yours. I, too, have been blind since birth, and also never knew my mother. Tell you what, maybe I could slither all over you, and work out what you are, so at least you'll have that going for you." "Oh, that would be wonderful" replied the bunny. So the snake slithered all over the bunny, and said, "Well, you're covered with soft fur; you have really long ears; your nose twitches; and you have a soft cottony tail. I'd say that you must be a bunny rabbit." "Oh, thank you! Thank you," cried the bunny, in obvious excitement. The bunny suggested to the snake, "Maybe I could feel you all over with my paw, and help you the same way that you've helped me." So the bunny felt the snake all over, and remarked, "Well, you're smooth and slippery, and you have a forked tongue, no backbone and no balls .I'd say you must be French".

The deliverer could also be immunized.

I doubt Hussein & Co. would go to that trouble. The upper echelons would likely be vaccinated, but I doubt if they'd care much about the messenger. Another dead body is just something to step over for that crew.

We should impose a regime change in France. Give Chirac 48 hours to vacate France, or we will remove him.

48 hours? Why that long? Call the dude when he's in the Jacuzzi and tell him you've got the electricity right there, does he feel like resigning and moving to Baghdad for a few days? Then fly his butt to the remains of the Republican Palace and finish it off once and for all.

The man is a disgrace, I can't believe we've got SOMEONE WHO HELPED BUILD IRAQ'S NUCLEAR PROGRAM in the debate about the war. Kind of like having an "imam" for an Army Medical Center. This world is a bunch of tired braindead socialists, especially france. America has been asleep at the wheel for too long, in the Clinton trance internationally and domestically. Hopefully we will wake up quickly.

It will take 48 hours to move our carriers and personnel from the Gulf and Eastern Med to the Western Med. Also, it would be nice to take some ships through the Straits of Gibralter to the Atlantic to clear the path for the Brits to cross the Channel while a sneak attack is launched through the Chunnel.

No shots will be fired. France will surrender before the Brits get through the Chunnel. I vote for Fergie to take control of the French government.

Your posting of a link to the video of our POWs was the most despicable act I have seen on Freerepublic.

Producing videos of our POWs to exploit there status is a violation of the Geneva Convention. Your link contributes to the abuse of these brave Americans.

I am thankful the moderator pulled your post.

If they've not taken any antibiotics, they'll be sick in a couple of days.

They've been vaccinated against anthrax. Remember the stink raised about mandatory anthrax inoculations a few years ago?

While I don't doubt that al qaeda did the anthrax...

What were they thinking going after Leahy and Daschle? They could not have better friends in the US government than them.

So what happened with this report? Were there any actual published sources found, and if so, what happened to this story? It seems based on hearsay - it would seem to be BIG news but it sure seems like it was a false report or we would have heard more about it, no?
