I think we're all missing the big story here. CNN put this sentence, all by its lonesome, as the third paragraph:

CNN could not independently verify Idriss' claim.

CNN tried to verify a claim! This is huge.

RyogaM: I never understood this argument, that Saddam gave away his WMDs.  Why?  Why would he do that?  What's the damn point?  You are being invaded by a superior force.  You know you are going to need every resource at your disposal just to survive.  If it looks like your defeat is inevitable, if the opposition makes it across the Red Line around Baghdad, you might is well use your WMDs and make them pay as great a price as possible for attacking you.  That why you keep your WMDs.

But if you send them to another country, what do you get?  Oh, after the opposing army overruns your country, after you are deposed, and hiding in a hole somewhere, after your children are killed, and maybe you are killed, someone will look up and say, "Golly, I guess he was telling the truth, that he really did not have WMDs, Hyuck! Well, don't I feel abashed? " The whole idea makes no sense.  None.


No you see Saddam was able to smuggle his WMDs into Syria but hid himself in a spider hole rather than fleeing the country.

To make it appear to the world that he never had them. What some people like to forget is that UN weapons inspectors had documented large amounts of chemical weapons in Iraq, so there's no disputing that he had them.

Rent Party: freak7: max_pooper: Remember when freak7 claimed that 1998 was the last time UN weapons inspectors were in Iraq? Hilarious.

Perhaps you should go back and read the comments. I said that the inspectors were booted in 1998 and that there was a 4 year period when they were not in country. They returned in late 2002, not 2003 as you and others had claimed.

Face it, you're ignorant of the basic facts of Iraq's weapons program and are trying to cover your ass by trolling.

What did they say about it in 2003?


Give him a minute, he's not done googling it yet.

OgreMagi: I doubt the UN Security Council will be able to find time in their busy schedule of denouncing Israel to do anything useful.


I do believe you are attempting some kind of a talking point. Doesn't really work when the US has veto power in the UN security council.

Neighborhood Watch: RyogaM: There is no chance in hell Syria will not comply with this agreement.  There is no evidence that Assad directly ordered the chemical attack.


Those two sentences don't seem to exactly... 'jive'.

Are you high?


Except if you read all the sentences that follow.

freak7: RyogaM: Let me remind you how you entered this thread:

I answered a question, I made no mention or defense of the most recent invasion of Iraq. The undeniable facts are that up until 1998, Iraq had chemical weapons stockpiles. After they kicked the weapons inspectors out for the final time, there was no real way of knowing what was going on.


The inspectors were kicked out in 2003, by us, so we could get our war on.  You are again parroting Bullshiat Bush apologist talking points.  And you last answer was a parroting of Bullshiat Bush apologist talking points.  You are trolling.  Sadly, you are playing stupid so well, that it is almost impossible to not try to correct you.  Good for you, you've convinced everyone you are a moron.

Or maybe you could search Google for "1991 Iraq chemical weapons attack". I'm not doing your homework for you.

ongbok: vygramul: freak7: Fart_Machine: Yes at one time he did back in the 80s against Iran. However stockpiles only have a shelf life of a few months at most

Interesting since he used them in 1991.

?

I'm actually not sure what we're supposed to conclude, that CW lasts longer than three months? Yoghurt has a shelf life that isn't measured in years. Yet I had yoghurt today AND in 1991.

I'm a little shocked the Talking Points have not yet been changed to: "Saddam's WMDs have been moved from Syria to Iran where they are being used to guard Iran's nuclear weapons."

You did not actually read my whole post, did you, like where I mocked the very idea that making the would think you did not have WMDs is a good idea when it only occurs after your country is invaded, your army destroyed, your children are killed, you are deposed and killed?
