    Back when Sir Reagan ruled the US, Iraq used chemical weapons in Iran, and it was no big deal

    The biggest laugh is that Reagan made a deal with the Iranians (treason) to get elected, then gave Saddam the Sarin weapons of mass destruction to gas them. What an evil, evil man.

    Syria happens to be some very valuable real estate. Saudi Arabia and Qatar want it, and both sent mercenary armies to conquer it. Britain, France, and Turkey want a piece. Israel thinks, if Syria gets rid of al-Assad, the French will get it back (best) or the Ottomans (second best) and Israel will be safer.


    So al-Assad’s WMD are all excuses to decapitate the Syrian state.


    The Saudi mercenaries are known to have chemical weapons. (For those who can’t read Arabic, it says ‘Made in Saudi Arabia’, and experts have identified the device as a chemical weapon.)

    @Omnius

    Or is the muslims gassing their own to blame the Assad regime?

    I understand that St. Ron wanted Iran to lose, that thing with the hostages was still fresh. But providing Iraq with target packages for chemical warfare? He’s lucky to be dead…

    I just checked it out on Wikipedia, it seems the U.S. still has 3150 tons of the stuff, so the cartoon is accurate. It was supposed to have been destroyed by April 29th 2012. Mr. President? Would you care to explain yourself?

    It’s Bush’s fault, though, right?

    They are trying to find a buyer.. free enterprise and all.. you know. There are lots of buyers around but they will not submit to the expense of removing the “Made in the USA” stickers.

    The difference is that Syria is using theirs.

    Except the US has gotten rid of theirs seeing as how chemical weapons have proven so ineffective and little used. I’d bet shelling that town in Syria with explosive rounds would have done more damage and caused more casualties.
    That was the case with Saddam’s use of these weapons on the Iranians and Kurds and the case in WW 1 as well.

    Of course, since Benson knows zip point $#@+ about chemical weapons he just goes with the popular and ill-informed version in making his cartoon.

    So what are you doing with this comment ?? Demonize your opponent !!

    And nobody here speaks of the simple fact that it was a GANG OF SAUDI ARABIANS who hijacked the airplanes that were flown into the World Trade Center, and the Pentagon. Or that the Saudi Arabian Wahhabi sect of Mohammedism is the most fanatic – and probably most dangerous – of all Mohammedism’s segments. Not to mention the best financed, and most zealously dedicated to eradication and total destruction of what Mohammedism calls “The Great Satan”, OUR UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Why?

    And America isn’t. What’s the point of building weapons if you never use them? What a waste of taxpayers’ money.
