"According to discussions,in keeping with the UN resolutions all nuclear and fissionable materials were removed from Iraq, equipment were destroyed,
research in nuclear sciences was severely contracted, and most of scientists left the country." - M.N.H.Comsan of the Egyptian Nuclear Physics
Association, Cairo, Egypt.
Apparently NOT! As it was a genuine surprise this 550 metric tons of Yellow Cake which by the way doesn't have a shelf life so quit saying it does.
It's uranium slick, it's as silly as saying Asbestos has a shelf life or Mercury or Lead. Its shelf life is not one any of us would live long
enough to care.
Now besides the yellow cake found they had enriched uranium also and every intention of enriching the rest.
300 tons of radioisotopes including Cesium-137 and Cobalt-60. Both are extremely radioactive substances that are ideal for use in Radiological
Dispersal Devices (RDD), or dirty bombs Yellow cake is uranium that has been milled into uranium oxide that can be enriched into weapons grade
uranium. The discovery of depleted uranium at the Tuwaitha site indicates that the enrichment process was indeed taking place. A total of 1.8 tons of
enriched uranium have been discovered and removed from Iraq since the war started in 2003.
"You have a warehouse containing 500 tons of natural uranium; you need 25 kilograms of U235 to build one weapon. How many nuclear weapons can you
build? The answer is 142."
Fortunately for us we have the liberal slant on Sadam and as usual they know nothing of what they speak when they say, Saddam didn't have the nuclear
enrichment technology to convert his 500-ton uranium stockpile into weapons-grade bombmaking material.
That is the anti Bush laced hatred we have come to know from them but like most who are truly interested in knowing facts rather than blaming Bush for
stealing your bike when you were a kid, I like to mention things that the MSN rarely finds space on News to inform us about. I mean the last thing we
need to do is ruin the eight year hate campaign to get Bush and any qualified Veteran's aspirations to become President a Pipe dream. But here are
the facts and they are undeniable.
Dr. Mahdi Obeidi, who ran Saddam's nuclear centrifuge program until 1997 After he was captured by U.S. forces in Baghdad, it was discovered He kept
blueprints for a nuclear centrifuge, along with the actual centrifuge components, stored at his home - buried in the front yard - awaiting orders from
Baghdad to proceed.
Obeidi said "I had to maintain the program to the bitter end," The only other alternaitive was death"
In The Book "The Bomb in My Garden," the Iraqi physicist explains that his nuclear stash was the key that could have unlocked and restarted
Saddam's bombmaking program. "The centrifuge is the single most dangerous piece of nuclear technology," he writes. "With advances in centrifuge
technology, it is now possible to conceal a uranium enrichment program inside a single warehouse."
Charles Duelfer, also had confirmed that nuclear research at al Tuwaitha was continuing right up until GWB's U.S. invasion, telling Congress in March
that Saddam's scientists were "preserving and expanding their knowledge to design and develop nuclear weapons."
Duelfer also said, One laboratory at al Tuwaitha "was intentionally focused on research applicable for nuclear weapons development."
So in an effort to set the record straight about Sadams ability to produce WMD's Obeidi warned in a New York Times op-ed piece that Saddam could
have restarted his nuclear program "with a snap of his fingers." He had a deliver system of converted Russian made rockets and ordnance with a range
Yes BUSH has been Vindicated.
Deal with it
