So much for any further whining about lack of WMD from the democrats and their controlled anti-American news media
Oh, and for all of you who think this is just about oil, think again! We could take and hold every oil field over their and there is no way they could even get close to them if that was our goal.
Tex Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin reports the first attack with these weapons of mass destruction has been launched inside Baghdad's Green Zone.

I have seen countless articles, statements and interviews with experts(some not) stating the shelf life of the Iraq sarin is less than 1 year. Can anyone confirm this? Does mustard gas have a shelf life?
Iraq mass produced sarin during the Iran-Iraq war with the expectation that it would be used quickly, and they therefore skipped several purification steps. Fresh agent was about 60% pure and heavily contaminated with hydrogen fluoride (which, of course, also causes health problems in exposed individuals). When production caught up with demand, the Iraqis started storing their sarin in refrigerated "igloos" to prolong its storage life. However, even when stored in the igloos, the material rapidly degraded, becoming less than 10% pure within 2 years.

We have found booby trapped shell containing Sarin gas, anti tank missiles they weren’t suppose to have, and the mysterious weapon which punched a pencil size hole through an M-1 Abrams Tank and disabled it. In an area the size of Iraq, with known underground storage facilities, one would assume there will be much more found before the war is over.
