Considering their close ties to Iran and Russia could be either or both were in Iraq from the get go Maybe they need to stop supplying the technical support for them and "pass that parcel".
No. Let me ask you directly. Are you in favour of military action against Syria to recover alleged weapons of mass destruction?
They tried? When? Where?
By "merest suspicion" I was referring to countries generally and not specifically Iraq. Yes and as we've already established he gassed his own people with the connivance and in some cases assistance of our benign Western governments.
Do you think there is some international conspiracy to spirit away the WMDs whenever the United States gets close to acquiring them?
Considering the U.S. gave Saddam the anthrax seed and the chemical weapons.
All told, 52% of Iraq's international chemical weapon equipment was of German origin. Around 21% of Iraq’s international chemical weapon equipment was French. About 100 tons of mustard gas also came from Brazil. The United Kingdom paid for a chlorine factory that was intended to be used for manufacturing mustard gas An Austrian company gave Iraq calutrons for enriching uranium. The nation also provided heat exchangers, tanks, condensers, and columns for the Iraqi chemical weapons infrastructure, 16% of the international sales. Singapore gave 4,515 tons of precursors for VX, sarin, tabun, and mustard gasses to Iraq. The Dutch gave 4,261 tons of precursors for sarin, tabun, mustard, and tear gasses to Iraq. Egypt gave 2,400 tons of tabun and sarin precursors to Iraq and 28,500 tons of weapons designed for carrying chemical munitions. India gave 2,343 tons of precursors to VX, tabun, Sarin, and mustard gasses. Luxemburg gave Iraq 650 tons of mustard gas precursors. Spain gave Iraq 57,500 munitions designed for carrying chemical weapons. In addition, they provided reactors, condensers, columns and tanks for Iraq’s chemical warfare program, 4.4% of the international sales. China provided 45,000 munitions designed for chemical warfare.
Offtopic to answer No
Who is lying now? Scud launchers are not made by the west
It's only off topic when it suits you.
Where were the weapons then? How did they try? We seem to be going around in circles, have you been asleep?
I don't know Neo96, who is lying? I certainly never accused anybody of lying no more than I mentioned anything to do with Scud launchers.
United States support for Iraq during the Iran–Iraq War, against post-revolutionary Iran, included several billion dollars worth of economic aid, the sale of dual-use technology, non-U.S. origin weaponry, military intelligence, Special Operations training, and direct involvement in warfare against Iran.

Really? there were no wmds in Iraq which is the entire premise of this thread.
The United States supported Iraq during the Iran-Iraq War
Please elaborate. As stated previously only old, useless munitions were found and other things which were questionable but we have no idea what they were, nor have we had any follow up which determines what they were.
Your point is?
You keep posting off topic then accuse us of being off topic when all we are doing is responding to your off topic deflections.
Your off-topic post regarding china and Syria has got nothing to do with the news above and the thread ne0. Your opinion is just a guess work and has no valid proof.. I think the news hurt your feelings. I know , truth hurts. too bad.
