    With all of the posturing and debate over the elimination of "weapons of mass destruction"...
    you would swear that these bioweapons just sprouted
    out of the dessert thru spontaneous generation...

    The reality is...that these third world and underdeveloped countries have all obtained technology and weaponry from Western or American governments or companies...From 1985 to 1987 Saddams bioweapons program got some assistance from US Companies and the US government...the Centers For Disease Control and the Manassas, Virginia based company, American Type Culture Collection(ATCC) sent strains of Anthrax bacteria, gas gangrene,(a bacteria that causes toxic gases to form in the body), and the bacteria that produces botulinum toxin, and possibly west nile virus were sent in varying combinations to Saddam Hussein's bioweapons sites...Saddam later admitted to the United Nations "...that it had made weapons out of all three."(Town Talk, Oct. 1, 2002, p.1) All of these facts were reported in a 1994 Senate Banking Committee report and a letter from the CDC to the Senate...Senator Robert Bird has entered these into the Congressional Record for the month of October...

    The irony is that American boys and girls lives potentially could be at risk and endangered by a bioweapons program that was enhanced in part by the Centers For Disease Control and a US company...There have been calls for Iraq to give a full accounting of his weapons...shouldnt the US government give a full accounting of what was sold by the US to Iraq...too...?

    Normally I would ask for a link, but this has been driven into the ground, unfortunately prior to the updated board on lost archives. Not playing this round. :tinfoil:

    Since Woody has chosen just the link, I'll give a bit. LOL It's all Bush's fault:

    With that laugh, in truthfulness, the anthrax thing has been beaten dead, as I said, I won't play. Meaning no searchie for me.
