They didn't find WMD in Iraq so now they are saying its in Syria. Cool story NATO.
Once they invade Syria and they don't find any evidence of WMD they will probably say it have moved to Iran.
What comes after Iran? Russia or China? Well we know they have WMD for sure....

Bush vindicated huh? Well who do you think designed and sold those chemical weapons to Saddam? Bush senior and Reagan admins, which unfortunately means, we did.
There was plenty of blame to go around.

Ok, so they admit it. You guys still have not addressed the shelf life of these munitions. Whatever they got from Iraq is probably useless unless it was Mustard Gas. Mustard gas is rather persistent, nerve agents tend to break down within 5 years. We all know who has been in Iraq the last five years. If they got it from Iraq pre-invasion then it is pretty much worthless goo.

You seem confused. The Syrians are not talking about weapons that they received, allegedly, from Iraq but their own produced stockpile. Think about it? Look at the threats that Syria has faced over the decades or turmoil in the region? Not only had Syria the Israelis to worry about but also poor relations with Iraq when Saddam Hussein was in power. During the Iran-Iraq war Syria sided and supported Iran. Syrian troops even took part in the 1991 Gulf War to oust Iraqi troops from Kuwait. That Syrian-Iranian alliance still continues to this day.

As to the kurds getting gassed that was down to bush. Who told them to revolt and the USA would come and help them. When sadam was gassing them with his WMD (supplied by the west) no one batted an eye lid. As for Syrias WMD. He shouldnt be attacked for having them. If thats the reason then every other country with them, should also be attacked.
