  • No WMD Stockpiles in Iraq? Not Exactly ...

    Is it really true that Saddam Hussein had no "stockpiles" of weapons of mass destruction before the U.S. invaded in March 2003? Not exactly - at least not if one counts the 500 tons of uranium that the Iraqi dictator kept stored at his al Tuwaitha nuclear weapons development plant. The press hasn't made much of Saddam's 500-ton uranium stockpile, downplaying the story to such an extent that most Americans aren't even aware of it. But it's been reported - albeit in a by-the-way fashion - by the New York Times and a handful of other media outlets. And one...
  • RandallFlagg: WMDs = Cheese

    The world (Except Saddam) claimed to know for a fact that there were illegal WMDs in Iraq. The left was screaming, "NO war for oil," and, "Bush lied -people died," for over a year now. I have a theory about this that hasn't collapsed to any new facts as of yet. In fact, it's strengthened. I take these people on every day in the web in other forums. They shout, "Bish Lied," and I shove back with, "Name the lie." They usually answer with, "Well, well, well..... He IMPLIED---," and their case is destroyed by their own words. But I...

    Tuesday, May 4, 2010 The Lorena Bobbitt of Politics Attempts to Decapitate the US! Our government surely wants to destroy us! US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton announces declassification of one of the Nations most guarded secrets. "Beginning today, the United States will make public the number of nuclear weapons in our stockpile and the number of weapons we have dismantled since 1991," Mrs Clinton said. "So for those who doubt that the United States will do its part on disarmament, this is our record, these are our commitments and they send a clear, unmistakable signal." Following this statement Clinton...

    Emergency stockpiles in Israel meant for storing US army equipment in Middle East opened in Israel's favor during last Lebanon war WASHINGTON - The American Congress gave Israel financial and security encouragement when the Senate and the House of Representatives gave their approval to double the emergency equipment the United States stores in Israeli stockpiles. Within the next two years the Americans will fill the military emergency stockpiles in Israel with double the equipment they now hold. In addition, the US will allow Israel to use the remainder of the US's monetary guarantees given to them that have not been...

    March 2003 UN Iraq WMD Report ^ | June 22 2006 | jveritas
    Since the story broke yesterday about finding 500 Shells of Chemical Weapons in Iraq, shells that contain Sulfur Mustard Gas or Sarin Gas, the Left and their media were quick to dismiss this extremely important find by using the lame excuse that these Chemical weapons Shells were produced before 1991 and hence its not effective anymore because it has much lower quality”. However in March 2003 UN report about Iraq Weapons of Mass Destruction there is the following on page 77 (Page 79 of the pdf file), paragraph 1 of the report http://www.un.org/Depts/unmovic/documents/6mar.pdf : “ The Sulfur Mustard contained in...

    In a stunning about-face, the New York Times reported Sunday that when the U.S. attacked Iraq in March 2003, Saddam Hussein possessed "stockpiles of monitored chemicals and materials," as well as sophisticated equipment to manufacture nuclear and biological weapons, which was removed to "a neighboring state" before the U.S. could secure the weapons sites. The U.N.'s Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission [UNMOVIC] "has filed regular reports to the Security Council since last May," the paper said, "about the dismantlement of important weapons installations and the export of dangerous materials to foreign states."

  • America's Hiroshima: America's Date with Disaster - (take this seriously!

    Reports are slowly filtering out about a plan by Islamics to detonate several nuclear bombs around the continental United States. Osama bin Laden has lovingly named this attack “America’s Hiroshima.” His logic for giving his plan this name is that the United States is the only world power to use an atomic weapon against an enemy and based on that, it is legal and within Islamic law for him to use such weapons against the American people. According to reports obtained from captured Al Qaeda agents and documents they were carrying, several nuclear devices may have been brought across the...

    Just when did the IAEA last verify the presence of the stockpiles of RDX, HMX, and PETN? From the CNN Website: http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/meast/10/28/iraq.explosives/index.html According to the Pentagon, IAEA inspectors last visited the complex on March 15, 2003, and they left the country two days later. On March 19, the invasion began. When a U.S. military team arrived to inspect the site on May 8, they did not find the explosives. U.S. troops who came through Al-Qaqaa in April also did not see the material, although Pentagon officials concede they were not asked to make a thorough search of the complex. Pentagon...

    US capture of hospital reveals secret antidote stock United States marines who captured an Iraqi military base in Nassiriya found thousands of chemical protection suits and nerve gas antidote, raising fears that Baghdad may be planning a gas attack to fend off the US-led invasion, US officers said yesterday. The marines found 3,000 chemical suits and a chest full of the antidote atropine in a hospital that they said Iraqi soldiers had been using as a base in the fight for a strategically important crossing point on the Euphrates river. The hospital was seized when the US soldiers came under...

    US stockpiles oil to avoid price shock Bush learns a lesson from slump after first Gulf conflictJulian Borger, Washington Saturday August 3, 2002 The Guardian Beneath the gently curving coastline of Texas and Louisiana, vast underground caverns are being filled with crude oil as part of Washington's war preparations that could be as important as the Pentagon's military blueprints. The caverns were once subterranean pillars of salt, but the salt has been dissolved and sucked out, leaving gigantic sealed reservoirs which for the past quarter century have served as the US strategic petroleum reserve (SPR). Last November, when the Bush...
