DarkDisciple - How much do you know about the matters at hand as well as Iraq's possession of many rather nasty agents? I dunno about you, maybe
it's just my point of view, but personally, I don't want a total nutcase to have access to numerous WMDs, which Saddam does. If he is stopped the
world will be a safer place, so your comment about annoying people, in this case Iraq, was a rather silly, and uneducated remark.
If you could back it, and my guess is that I can easily shoot down many of the usual points as well as some of the more unusual points, then it would
hold more water, not just simply stating that the US is off to annoy another one of those folks off there in the Middle East.
To give you an idea of the destructive potential of a biological weapon, 8 ounces of BTX, which is a secretion released by a certain strain of the
botulism toxin, is enough to KILL every living organism on the face of this earth. That's two-thirds of a Fosters that will KILL all life.
Fortunately, BTX is incredibly difficult to weaponize, but many of the other agents Saddam has aren't. Granted more of the agent will be required,
I'm sure you can imagine the headaches a similar agent could cause if released into a population
