Subject: RE: BS: WMDs WERE found in Iraq!
Pssst Bobert Donald Rumsfeld only met Saddam Hussein ONCE and that was on 20th December 1983, right in the middle of the Iran/Iraq War. That meeting lasted for 90 minutes and weapons were not discussed let alone offered or requested - All of that is a simple matter of record.

A list of weapons supplied to Saddam Hussein's regime by the USA is not only very short it is non-existant. The USA did not supply weapons to Iraq although it did, along with Israel supply Iran.

"Bear Spares" were a means of US allies (Israel & Egypt) getting rid of ex-Soviet/Warsaw Pact arms which were then replaced by equipment from the USA.

If all those supposed arms were to ensure that Iraq "WON" the war then the US did not do too good a job did it? - NOBODY won the Iran/Iraq War and that was precisely the result that the USA and the rest of the world wanted.

To answer Guest999's question I would refer you to "beardedbruce's" contributions. As to Iraq and Uranium Yellow Cake in March 2003 it held in storage 500 tons of the stuff, 384 Rocket Motors were discovered and proscribed development of missiles was established, just as British intelligence said it would based on photographic interpretation.
