    That’s called WMD... Weapons of mass destruction...

    You know the stuff we said was there and most everyone else said there was none :lol:


    SO WMD has been found in IRAQ...

    small amount or not people on the left can now begin eating thier words....:evil:

    It shows there is still WMD there and it's up for cheap sale if terroist were to have gotten those muntions one could only imagine the horror

    Yeah but this story is about about 20 years old munitions that were used in a war where everybody knew about what Saddam was using and the US accepted it. Not quite something that has anything to do with what kind of WMD are being looked after today. I guess that Fox did not choose to actively spin this further because they knew well enough that a large part of their viewers would do that for them. ;)

    The point is he was supposed to destroy all weapons that could go a certain distance and ALL WMDS. Their age is not a factor. A 20 year old nuclear warhead is still a nuclear warhead.

    I still don't think he was a major threat though, but now the Bush administration has something to show for all this time.

    Another reason we haven't heard more is due to the fact that the tests are still being run. The field test did indeed show a positive. But the field tests are designed to err on the side of safety. If and when the "official " lab tests are completed there will be more about it in the news .

    Again, who cares? I agreed with the premise that wars can be fought on the suspicion that Saddam Hussein had WMD. But that's not what the Bush Administration said. They never said that, hey, we should wage this war because Saddam might have weapons and that's not something we can risk. They said that Saddam had weapons and US intelligence knew where they were.

    The fact that we've found some now is a coincidence. It doesn't change the fact that the truth was stretched.

    Fox's news story was fabricated by the United States government who paid Poland to report it so as to give some measure of false justification to the war in Iraq.


    Chew on that.

    All the World intelligence agencys said he had WMD. Its a proven fact that everything the UN said to destroy wasn't. So if they weren't destroyed where are they. There still in Iraq hidden away and will continue to be found.

    I'm sure they have pictures or videos. Other than that unless you can prove them wrong all you can do is be skeptic, that doesn't mean you have to spread your skepticism.

    I wasn't the one making a claim. What am I supposed to prove? You're the one making a claim -- the onus is on you.

    So, again I ask, please prove that the US fabricated this story and gave it to Fox News.

    I can say for a fact, that chemical weapons and containers used to store chemical munitions were found in 1991, I was there, we tested people exposed to smoke from burning munitions bunkers and we found mustard gas and nerve agents, we know from the official records the IRAQI military and government kept that equipment and products used to produce sarin were sold to them by the French, this is something you can google. And lets face it, the pictures and testimony of IRANIANS and KURDS that were exposed to various chemical agents...the world outcry.....

    Well it looks like the foxnews story is in error, at least according to British PM Tony Blair.

    other weapons have already been found, these dont matter. he used them against kurds, and iranians. why make such a big deal about these? saddam abused his people, and he deserves death.

    Because a large part of the reason given for going to war was that Iraq possed WMD and the US was in imminent danger . The abuse by Saddam is a matter of record, nobody can argue that. He used poison gas against the kurds in the late 80's and many other atocities. Finding a large cache of modern WMD or a facility to manufacture WMD would go a long way in helping the Bush administration (and the CIA) save face.
