U.S. Wants Answers On Iraqi Drones, Bombs

WASHINGTON -- Struggling for U.N. support to forcibly disarm Saddam Hussein, U.S. officials said Monday that the discovery that Iraq had developed an unmanned aerial vehicle and other banned weapons shows Iraq has not changed its ways.

The White House wants to know why Hans Blix didn't tell the Security Council about a new allegation buried deep in his written report: that Iraq has developed unmanned drones capable of dispensing chemical weapons.

Because the UN is anti-American, they'll try and bring us down through lies and deceit until the end of their days.

Hanz Blix of course wouldn't tell the WORLD that America is right, and the UN is wrong.

We should tear open his chest, gut him and feed him to the birds


After a due trial of course, he could just have over looked it

It was included in the report, which means it would have been ascertained by all concerned. Meaning that, rather then make a public announcement, which would have been heard throughout the world at once. All parties interested could have some time before the information was publicly disseminated. Making such an announcement in a public forum, which is being televised worldwide, would probably have been construed as irresponsible.

The article sites that cluster bombs were found, but is not specific as to if those bombs contained any agents. One can contend that in fact the cluster bombs were found intact in which case, prima fascia evidence exists to go to war.

Hammerite, this topic does not have anything to with being pro- or anti-American. It's about what evidence there is for the U.S. to go to war. And it's pushing me more and more to think that war is necessary.

I just read this over at CBS...

www.cbsnews.com...

"The remotely piloted aircraft that the United States has warned could spread chemical weapons appears to be made of balsa wood and duct tape, with two small propellers attached to what look like the engines of a weed whacker. "

Thank god Blix didn't mention this in his presentation. It would have done far more harm than good for the US, if Blix had detailed the exact threat that this drone poses...

Still no evidence then...

Harm to the US? In what way? By proving the US is right about Saddam? By proving that Hans Blix has an anti-US bias? I don't see your point, please explain Dom.

This could have harmed the US case, because if Blix had announced it, he would then have had to gone in to detail about it at a later meeting, which would have caused considerable embarassment.

For this model aircraft to be equipped with chemical weapons you would need to totally rebuild it. A balsa wood model airplane is not going to be able to carry a chemical weapon delivery system, pumps, metal sprays, chemical storage, etc..

FFS, this is not about Blix being anti-US, this is about Blix not being Colin Powell's puppet...

That's a little presumptious, don't you think? Have you see specs for the Iraqi drone? If so, could you please link to your source. We know little about these pieces of equipment, and it is totally possible that they were equiped to deliver some sort of chemical agent.

FFS, this is not about Blix being anti-US, this is about Blix not being Colin Powell's puppet...

I wouldn't exactly say that this is about Blix not being Powell's puppet..but Blix knew this would lend credibility to the US's position on Iraq. Plain and simple.

Dr Know, Blix talking about this drone as a serious breach would indeed have strengthened the US hand, unfortunately it would also have been a lie.
