But how can this be?

They don't have any WMD's.... or at least that's what many here have said.

Iraq Arming Troops With Chemical Weapons







Monday, March 17, 2003

WASHINGTON ? Iraqi troops south of Baghdad are armed with chemical weapons, Fox News has learned.





Senior Defense and other U.S. officials confirmed that intelligence reports indicate that Saddam Hussein's troops are armed with chemical munitions.

"The information is raw ? and hard to confirm ... but we are seeing -- using different methods -- that Saddam Hussein has armed troops south of Baghdad with chemical weapons," one official said.

Officials say it's hard to tell how many of these weapons are being distributed, but the intelligence reports indicate that "some chemical shells" have been provided to troops.

Senior Defense officials say they expected the Iraqis to use these weapons, and they predict more movement by Iraqi troops in the South and the West in the next day or so.

Iraqi troops along the Kuwaiti border far to the south are in shooting distance of U.S. troops stationed there -- but the troops with the chemical shells are further north -- still in the southern no-fly zone, but south of Baghdad.

Saddam said Monday that Iraq once had weapons of mass destruction for defense against Iran and Israel, but it no longer holds them, according to the Iraqi News Agency.

"We are not weapons collectors," Saddam said in remarks during a meeting with a Tunisian envoy.. "But we had these weapons for purposes of self-defense when we were at war with Iran for eight years and when the Zionist entity (Israel) was, and it still is, a threat."

Iraq and Iran fought a ruinous 1980-1988 war in which chemical weapons were used.

"When Saddam Hussein says he has no weapons of mass destruction, he means what he says," Saddam said.

He also said his country had fully cooperated with U.N. inspectors seeking to verify that Iraq had eliminated its banned weapons.

"We have a real desire to rid our region and the whole world of weapons of mass destruction," Saddam said.

He then called on the United States to set an example by destroying its own weapons of mass destruction first.

President Bush has warned Saddam bluntly to disarm or face the consequences. Bush will give Saddam an ultimatum -- either get out of Baghdad or face a military thrashing -- in an address to the nation Monday night .

Fox News' Bret Baier and the Associated Press contributed to this report.

I would have read it, but it lost all credibility when I read this

Fox News has learned.

lol
Fox news, the greatest oxymoron ever... :smile:


I heard about that tho on another station tho, but the facts are few, ambiguous and inconclusive from an intelligence standpoint.

Wait, it seems like the article is basically saying that he DOESN'T have WMD's.

There is a lot of inconclusion in that article, no real depth or stability.

Of course he's going to arm his troops with weapons of some sort, what are they going to do... fight back with their fists?

How in the world would our "intellegence" know exactly what kind of weapons they have... The article even says that the information is raw and hard to confirm.

Saddam is also saying that he doesn't have them...

I'd like to see the US destroy their bombs before Iraq does... lol. It would never happen. Its the same shit thats going on in Iraq though... Their biggest threat, the US, is telling them to destroy their bombs so they can just go in their easier and take them out...

Now that would be something.. Imagine if all Iraqi troops put down their weapons and put up their fists.

Would we still fight them?

i don't think spin gets any more obvious.

"The information is raw ? and hard to confirm ..."

this is a blatant disclaimer basically saying that anything contained in the article is complete bullshit.

Agreed, this is nothing but propaganda. There is nothing to this article at all, "some chemical shells" means nothing. Technically any shell with explosives in it is a chemical shell, that is how vague this is.

They also forget all of the depleted uranium shells that the US/UK will be using, of course that's ok 'cos we keep telling ourselves we're the good guys..


--------------------
The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
:tongue:

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

Just as I read this, someone was talking about it on CNN, saying that US intelligence officials are calling the information "ambiguous and inconclusive."

It looks like a pretty shoddy article. It should have said "Intelligence reports Iraqi soldiers may be armed with chemical weapons", but it's Fox, so you can't really expect acutal reporting.

I'm not worried about chemical warfare. Our troops are being vaccinated for Anthrax and Small Pox...they'll be prepared.

No one knows exactly what caused the GWS. Speculation goes anywhere from anthrax vaccinations to burning oil fields to clouds of smoke from chem weapons factories/stores we blew up. There is almost no evidence, however, that the Iraqis used chem weapons on us.
