17.09 Chemical weapons produced at the Al Muthanna facility, which Isis today seized, are believed to have included mustard gas, Sarin, Tabun, and VX.


ISIS has WMDS.

Wait ?

I thought it was 'proven' beyond a shadow of a doubt that Saddam didn't have 'wmds'.

Now ISIS suddenly does ?



Here is the CIA's file on the complex.

Quote Stockpiles of chemical munitions are still stored there. The most dangerous ones have been declared to the UN and are sealed in bunkers. Although declared, the bunkers contents have yet to be confirmed. These areas of the compound pose a hazard to civilians and potential blackmarketers. Numerous bunkers, including eleven cruciform shaped bunkers were exploited. Some of the bunkers were empty. Some of the bunkers contained large quantitiesof unfilled chemical munitions, conventional munitions, one-ton shipping containers, old disabled production equipment (presumed disabled under UNSCOM supervision), and other hazardous industrial chemicals.



WHAT ?



17.05 The Chemical Weapons Convention, which Iraq joined in 2009, requires it to dispose of the material at Al Muthanna, even though it was declared unusable and "does not pose a significant security risk"


Ok WHAT ?

How can Iraq not have wmd then have WMD then in 2009 be 'required' to dispose of them?

But Bush lied!

Let me echo Neo: WHAT?

First possibility: They are covering up where ISIS got the chemical weapons, and pre-empting the news in case they use them. ISIS got a lot of weapons from US intelligence, directly or indirectly, funneling them to Syria. The Syrian rebel groups used chemical weapons and tried to frame the Syrian government. Now ISIS has chemical weapons, and they got them from Saddam Houssein's stockpile, which didn't exist (probably), and was sitting in Iraq for the last decade of US occupation undisturbed. I don't buy it.

Second possibility: This is WMD 2.0. They are hellbent on getting into a full on war in Syria, and this may be staged as their "in".

Because they are lying through their teeth to fabricate a reason to get the war machine rolling again.

Was it Westley Clark that said "when the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail" ? Somebody said that.

Something has the US government (more likely the banking cartels that employ the USG) spooked to the point of desperation.

But it's under the Obama administration, so this time it's real!

He could have least tried something new. Like they are killing Kittens or something.

Using the WMD excuse just insults our intelligence.

ISIS was going to call their football team the "Redskins".

That was the last straw for the Obama administration.

Whats more important is SAUDI ARABIA telling the US and the UK they will OPPOSE any intervention in Iraq.

"The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia wishes to see the defeat and destruction of all Al-Qaeda networks and of the Islamic State of Iraq and Al Sham operating in Iraq. Saudi Arabia does not provide either moral or financial support to Isis or any terrorist networks. Any suggestion to the contrary, is a malicious falsehood." - Prince Mohammed, Saudi ambasaador to the UK.

Someone should send this #wit a copy of farenheit 9/11..Saudi doesn't support terrorism...ha ha ha

"I saw them kill kittens, they took them out of their incubators, they took the incubators and left the kittens to die on the floor."

The OP seemed to have forgot this little part from the article.


Although declared, the bunkers contents have yet to be confirmed.

So nobody really knows what was in those bunkers for all we know they could have been the CW's that Rumsfeld sold to Hussein. Now the question is why did Bush and his cronies not destroy these chemical plants before he signed the paperwork that made us cut and run from Iraq?
