    Didn’t we used to have a no-fly zone there?

    The original source of Hussein’s chemical weapons was the U’S. Even the anthrax attacks were made with U.S. made weapons.

    “The original source of Hussein’s chemical weapons was the U’S.”

    The chemical weapons thing is one of those “sort of” things. We didn’t ship Sadam chemical weapons, but we did ship him all of the precursor chemicals necessary to manufacture the weapons during the Iran-Iraq war.

    I read a bunch of State Department memos (very lightly redacted) on this subject that were released through the freedom of information act. If you can find them they are worth reading, but you might want to take some blood pressure medication and a tranquilizer first.

    I remember when the righties were first pushing that one. Supposedly ALL Saddam’s WMDs. ( Not just the chemical weapons ) were shipped to Syria on two, ( count ’em! ) TWO converted airliners. and it was never detected by any of our satellittes. or surveillance flights…but the righties still bought into it wholesale, I used to see post ater post on that subject by uber-rightwingers, all over the web, accepting that fairy tale as Gospel from the Mount.

    Just goes to show how willfully stupid the Neo-Cons Republicans were.

    The other day, I asked him to back up one of his claims.

    He called me ‘lazy’ and told me to look it up myself.

    I think there’s a minor misunderstanding here. It appears to me that what David was saying is:

    Another Right-Wing Lie ( IS THAT ) Iraq’s gas was shipped to Syria.

    “Iraq’s gas was shipped to Syria.”

    Syria already had chemical weapons. Assad’s Alawites & Saddam’s Sunni henchmen had no love for one another. Assad backed Iran during the Iraq/Iran war & aid Iraqi Shia rebels against Saddam.

    Anyone who can put 2 + 2 together would not believe reports of WMD transfers between Iraq & Syria.

    What is worst, acting like they have chemical weapons to be safe or waiting till they are used?

    An Iraqi general confirmed it.

    Tell it to the thousands that were killed and maimed you arrogant bastard. It will be another generation before we recovery from the abomination of the Bush administration. Quicker if the wingnuts were responsible, but then, that’s why they’re wingnuts, isn’t it?

    An Iraqi general confirmed it in a book written years after the “fact”. Wonder why he didn’t come out and say it at the time? Think he’s trying to suck up to the righties so he can be installed after our next invasion? Or is he just looking for speaking fees. Or was he OUR general, installed as a sleeper in Saddam’s army?
