Let's hope Obama doesn't make idle threats if Hezbollah is getting
Oh, so are you playin the ole word game? Yes, Saddam HAD WMD's
in the past. And he used them. That was 1991.There has been no
evidence that he HAD WMD's in 2001. So, the correct statement
would be "We KNOW Saddam had WMD in 1991. There is NO evidence
that he had them in 2001."What I posted is FACT. You posted
He just made up that the Kurds were killed by his chemical weapons, also? When
a person is captured, especially one with any kind of integrity, he will say
anything to keep the noose off his neck but that didn't even work.
Interviewed by the FBI doesn't always do so well when it is a military
person, dictator, and very adept killer they are talking with. The FBI
didn't do so well it the marathon bombers, either nor with 9/11 prior
engagements. They are supposed to know the pieces of the puzzle. Even Libya
had their own stash but Ghadafi gave that up as Iraq was attacked. He was on
borrowed time also.
"If they didn't really have them, why would Iraq claim they had them?
"You have not seen this?(CNN) -- Saddam Hussein let
the world think he had weapons of mass destruction to intimidate Iran and
prevent the country from attacking Iraq, according to an FBI agent who
interviewed the dictator after his 2003 capture.
At the time of the Iraq invasion I was working with a Russian military person
who was sure we would find the weapons that Russia helped program to them and
was concerned. He knew and I knew they had chemical weapons and used them
against their own people. If they didn't really have them, why would Iraq
claim they had them? We didn't go into their country's interior in
1991 but should have. We knew of the reports against the Kurds. However, the
Chemical Weapon Convention wasn't signed yet which was done in January
1993, right before President Clinton took office. President Bush I got it
through the U.N. Chemical weapons alluded the United Nation's
OPCW. The Nuclear process is similar with the UN's International Atomic
Energy Agency. Politics is normal with the United Nations and even our State
Department. Since 1947, the UN has entrenched itself more into our political
arena even with military involvements from NATO and other alliances.
"President Bush got blamed for no-chemical weapons "Yes JWB.
He got blamed. BY HIMSELF"No one was more shocked and angry
than I was when we didn't find the weapons," he writes."I had
a sickening feeling every time I thought about it. I still do."Amazing that the you don't believe the man himself. Some people are just
in deep partisan denial.
This is from a 1980 Congressional report about nuclear testing in Nevada. These
happenings were important as about 5,000 sheep died in Skull Valley/Dugway in
1968 and people got concerned about nuclear fallout. It was only chemical
weapons in Dugway that killed the sheep. Our own government helped show Iraq
and Syria how to deny involvement.“Dr. Stephen Brower
testified that the government's policy not to compensate the sheepmen was
stated to him by Dr. Paul Pearson (then-Chief of the Biological Branch, Division
of Medicine, AEC) : ... Dr. Pearson told me .. that the AEC could under no
circumstances afford to have a claim established against them and have that
precedent set. And he further indicated that the sheepmen could not expect under
any circumstances to be reimbursed for that reason."And, to prevent
this precedent from being established, the govern¬ment proceeded to build a
case against compensation. As stated by Dr. Brower before the Subcommittee,
". . by the end of 1954 they had a battery of people coming through telling
us that the levels of radiation could, not have caused the damage . . . we were
just constantly bom¬barded with expert opinions."
Trickle from Iraq through the big pipeline border of getting rid of quickly
chemicals of mass destruction 10 years ago and now to Hezbollah through a
smaller conduit makes sense. President Bush got blamed for no-chemical weapons
but through the United Nations process through their chemical weapon convention
treaty is very similar to the nuclear weapons process. Also, there are members
in the security council and regular members that have power to stop or at least
hinder the process of the inspections. It is not the best but when you put
nations, people and organizations on notice that validates at least the notice.
It is hard enough with politics in the United States of America to
get anything done and within the International United Nations' processes,
it is even more difficult and that bureaucracy they have formed since 1947 has
become a rigid machine. They don't want to make any more mistakes as some
believed happened with the partitioning of Israel. It doesn't help when we
have our own Ambassador to the United Nations out on the public news media with
a multi-faceted aim to state undocumented facts for President Obama when it was
not at her level.
