    READ THE FULL STORY HERE Cameron Harris: Iraqi WMD's Finally Found?




    In 2003, American forces entered Iraq on the pretense that Saddam Hussein was harboring Weapons of Mass Destruction. Since that invasion, George W. Bush has faced harsh criticism from many for starting a war that was “unjustified.” While it is true that American forces never found evidence of such WMD’s, it was never entirely proven that these weapons did not exist. There was never any concrete indication of where these weapons may be…until now.

    Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria is currently in conflict with a group of Syrian rebels who call themselves the Free Syrian Army. The country is in full civil war, and the leader is beginning to panic. It is a common assumption that he will soon give the order to begin using chemicals weapons against the rebels and even civilians. The United States and Israel know that he has such weapons, but it is unclear where exactly these weapons came from.

    However, the number two general in Saddam Hussein’s air force says that these chemical weapons are the WMD’s that we did not find in Iraq.

    In 2006, Georges Sada, second in command of the Iraqi Air Force under Hussein before he defected, wrote a detailed narrative called “Saddam’s Secrets.” In this book, Sada details how the Iraqi Revolutionary Guard moved weapons of mass destruction into Syria in the weeks leading up to the US-led operation to eliminated Hussein’s weapons threat.

    rather than using them ... whats your point?

    and they were well documented by their use against the Curds a decade earlier with no response from the US.

    they found nothing (new) they claimed existed as reason for their unprovoked and unfunded invasion of a sovereign nation.

    My point is that they did not find them because they were moved to Syria. Is that so hard to grasp?

    I realize you righties are really reaching right now, but if Saddam was willing to fight with conventional weapons, why would he have sent his WMDs off to Syria?

    Because he knew that he was not going to use them against us. That would have been idiotic for him to do so.

    If you were a dictator who knew that he could hide his WMD's and maybe escape some punishment that was coming, wouldn't you do that? Instead of using chemical weapons on American troops? Who is really going to use chemical weapons on American troops?

    The U.S. government knew that Saddam had chemical weapons because we had the sales receipts to prove it. :cool:
