rank hypocrisy...thy name is Bush
    #1334579 - 02/25/03 01:14 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

Well doesn't this surprise nobody; can anyone else see the truly astounding hypocrisy in this report from the sydney morning herald yesterday:


"Military officials refused an international delegation entry to the US Army site at Edgewood Chemical Biological Centre in Maryland, after the group asked to carry out an inspection for illegal arms at the site."

WTF??  :confused:

...so it's OK for the US to refuse international inspectors access to search for possibly illegal arms, but not OK for Iraq to do the same...uh, right...

American... Hypocrite...Never.

Here's something interesting:
Main Entry: hyp?o?crite
Pronunciation: 'hi-p&-"krit
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English ypocrite, from Old French, from Late Latin hypocrita, from Greek hypokritEs actor, hypocrite, from hypokrinesthai
Date: 13th century
: a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion

Certainly sounds like Dubya to me.

MushyMay is a fictional character, as a result any information provided by MushyMay is also fictitious.

no shit LOL  :grin:

...still ya can't have everything huh...  :wink: but it is here...hehe...  SMH

from ZNet | Foreign Policy:


"And Powell?s Army is also busy figuring out novel ways to deliver chemical and biological agents to civilian ?targets.?

The US Army developing what it called the Ring Airfoil Projectile, ?for the delivery of selected incapacitating chemical agents.? The RAP is a chemical filled rubber ring, about 2.5 inches in diameter, and delivers ?a three foot cloud of incapacitating riot control agent.? Check it out at www.dtic.mil/ndia/nld4/flat.pdf  .

This research is being conducted at the Edgewood Chemical and Biological Facility, at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland. In its own words, ?the nation's center of chemical and biological expertise, the Edgewood Chemical Biological Center and Project Managers continue research, concept exploration, demonstration, validation and engineering manufacturing development for production of chemical defense systems, obscuring smoke, aerosol systems, and flame weapons.?

According to a growing number of scientists and activists, much of this research is illegal under the international treaties on chemical and biological weapons, signed by the US.

The Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) forbids ?any chemical which through its chemical action on life processes can cause death, temporary incapacitation or permanent harm to humans or animals. This includes all such chemicals, regardless of their origin or of their method of production, and regardless of whether they are produced in facilities, in munitions or elsewhere.?

Further, the CWC contains the following undertaking, which is being openly flouted by the United States

?Each State Party to this Convention undertakes never under any circumstances:

(a) To develop, produce, otherwise acquire, stockpile or retain chemical weapons, or transfer, directly or indirectly, chemical weapons to anyone;

(b) To use chemical weapons;

(c) To engage in any military preparations to use chemical weapons;

(d) To assist, encourage or induce, in any way, anyone to engage in any activity prohibited to a State Party under this Convention.?

The convention lives at www.opcw.org  . Yet the United States will not allow Iraq to sign this convention, preferring political stage shows at the UN as a blunt tool to use against various states according to the immediate needs of US oil corporations, and pharmaceutical companies.

It was to protect these interests that the United States ripped 8000 pages from the Iraqi declaration of its chemical and biological weapons program in December, 2002. The declaration contained damning information on companies like Unisys, Hewlett Packard, Bechtel, Dupont, Honeywell, and other big names in corporate America. These sold both Iraq and the Pentagon their deadly arsenals. Many of these corporations are Republican Party donors.

It was to protect these interests that the United States killed the inspections regime of The Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention, (BTWC) which forbids outright all forms of biological warfare, and the preparation for such conflict. Available at http://www.opbw.org/  , the major undertaking of the Convention is as follows:

?Each State Party to this Convention undertakes never in any circumstances to develop, produce, stockpile or otherwise acquire or retain:

(1) Microbial or other biological agents, or toxins whatever their origin or method of production, of types and in quantities that have no justification for prophylactic, protective or other peaceful purposes;

(2) Weapons, equipment or means of delivery designed to use such agents or toxins for hostile purposes or in armed conflict. ?

After Powell?s bristling display, one would rightly wonder what interest would be served by abandoning the BTWC. But corporate America opposes the universal application of these provisions, or any others that would hurt their profits."
