Thread Name: BS: WMDs WERE found in Iraq!
Subject: RE: BS: WMDs WERE found in Iraq!

"There was never anything to fear from Saddam."

The US Administrations of Bill Clinton and George W Bush did not agree with your reading of the situation - Clinton half-heartedly tried to address the problem after having identified it, George W Bush put the matter beyond all doubt and in doing so uncovered three "secret" nuclear weapons programmes and shut down a highly dangerous and illegal nuclear weapons proliferation network.

"If there were any usable materials in Iraq that could have fashioned WMD's, they were supplied by Bush Senior and the U.S. military so Saddam could win against Iran."

Nope "dual use" items were purchased from a whole host of countries through front companies and third parties. As stated previously Iraq did not win the war.

"Any attempt to manufacture a yellow cake of WMD's in Iraq
is risible."

Whole-heartedly agree with that. Iraq does not, nor ever has, manufactured yellow cake, they have always imported it. Looking at it logically the quantities of ore that you would have to transport to manufacture uranium yellow cake would be enormous - The yellow cake Stringsinger is made where the ore is mined.
