Kyle on Iraqi WMD – Today’s Quote

Kyle on Iraqi WMD – Today’s Quote

At another location, we found barrels of chemical material that was intended for use as biochemical weapons. Everyone talks about there being no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, but they seem to be referring to completed nuclear bombs, not the many deadly chemical weapons or precursors that Saddam had stockpiled.

    If you were aware at the time (that is not on drugs or under 18) you will remember that in fact for a year Saddam had trucks running from his bunkers to the Bekaa Valley in Syria. All of the intelligience agencies (not just U.S.) had evidence that Saddam was moving his WMDs into Syria. At the same time Russia was sending daily flights into Iraq to take out their biological program, lock stock and barrel. They sent in their Spetzsnaz to gaurd and control the effort. They did this because they had provided Saddam with his biological WMD equipment and materials and they didn’t want it to found by U.S. forces and embarrass them. You will remember that a NGO (I don’t remember which one) reported on finding tons and tons of yellow cake uranium in a previously secure location in Iraq and they also reported that Iraqis were dumping out the yellow cake to use the drums for water. The U.S. military later came on this very extensive underground site that was Saddams uranium refining site for the construction of nuclear weapons. There were more revelations at the time. Real events and facts that the MSM later seemed to forget and stopped reporting on. This happened. The Russians, Chinese, Germans and French delayed the war in the UN because each of them had provided something to Saddam’s WMD effort. Germany provided high tech machinery, Russia provided the equipment and ingredients to make biological weapons, China provide 95% of Saddams weapons of war, France provided considerable nuclear capability. Iraq was their cash cow and they wanted to prevent the U.S. from ending that. Most likely most of Saddam’s WMDs are rusting in the Syrian desert.

    I think Chris was a great man and all that….ok, but if you or anyone else thinks there were ANY weapons of mass destruction, you have rocks for brains. There were NO weapons of mass destruction found anywhere. That was ALL a bush lie. Period. The reBUMPlicans and the demoCRAPS are all the same….liars. Period.

      I pulled that quote a few weeks ago because the reporting on that issue was so…absent and few are willing to talk about it even now.

      While I agree with your sentiment, the facts aren’t so simple and the ‘narrative’ has taken on a life of its own.

      There were weapons found but not nearly as many as the Sadaam regime led us to believe…funny thing is… not only did his disinformation campaign become a justification for the war (instead of the deterrent he intended) but it also seems that Sadaam believe he had much larger stockpiles than he really did.
