The big question I have is where did they get them from if Saddam didn't have any. Inquiring minds want to know.


AS the US reeled from the death of nine marines in Iraq at the weekend, insurgents in Fallujah claimed to have obtained chemical weapons and threatened to use them in any battle for control of the rebel stronghold.

Rebel commanders said chemicals such as cyanide had been added to mortar rounds and missiles that would be deployed against coalition troops reported to be preparing for a major assault on the town west of Baghdad.

A military committee made up of former officers in Saddam Hussein's army, including experts on chemicals and guerrilla warfare, is said to have been organising forces in Fallujah and planning tactics.

The committee is understood to include members of all the main insurgent groups, including that of Iraq's most wanted man, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the terrorist leader behind the beheading of several foreign hostages and a string of car-bomb attacks.

I guess Syria sent some of them back in the interest of good nieghborly relations.
Then again... if the US Marines were about to level my home town, I'd claim to have chemical weapons too!

And you think that'll stop the Marines? They'll see it has a double-dog dare and go in harder!


But, of course we know it is only a bluff. There never was any special weapons material in Iraq, remember? Blather, Brokejaw and Jennings have told us this!

All the countries on the hit list could provide help to the insurgents to keep the US occupied in Iraq for a very long time.

Lets face it if things are cleared up there then wheres next?

So syria, iran, etc probably are financing and aiding the rebel fighters to the utmost. IMHO that is.

I agree.


If the insurgents can barely handle an RPG, then how are they going to handle something as sensitive as Bio weapons. Hmmm.... Maybe the Iranians and the Syrians will send in some Allah-approved specialists??? We did the same to the Soviets via the Mujahadeen/CIA Spooks in Afgahnistan.

So far they are "claiming" that they have them now the funny thing is how come if they have them it has taken this long for them to used them, I mean how long has US been fighting with insurgents in Fallujah?

Out of nowhere they said they had them, common I think they are just buying time to regroup and get themselves together.

And edsinger, is not proof yet that they have them okay? Unless you have been there and see them and known for a fact that they said "property of Sadam" they can have powder milk for what we know.

In all fairness, there are a number of ways this could be true, although I believe it is not true.

1. Hidden weapons have been given to insurgents by Saddam loyalists who hid them before the war.
2. Insurgents found burried weapons, or just recently realized that shells they had for roadside bombs were chemical.
3. Syria or Iran brought them in (possibly ex-iraqi hardware even).
4. Some body... really any retard in fact... could have gone out and bought cyanide for "industrial purposes" (it is used in metal etching i believe), and might have it in mind to simply release it wih roadside bombs etc.

IN FACT- a reasonably intelligent person can grow biological weapons in their garden just by not caring for certain types of grain properly. Aeresolizing these substances is trickey, but necessity is the mother of invention.

So although it is healthy to doubt the propaganda of radicals in any form- especially when they are trying to save themselves from the Marines- it is not healthy to ignore the remote possibility that we will have to contend with the bio-chemical threat.

Cyanide is a common industrial chemical.

And as I pointed out in another thread, it'll probably be an ineffective weapon in that type of environment.

Last time Bush was in my town, he was speaking at the FM Kirby Center, about 200 yards from which is the gold refurbishing shop I worked in where we had a 50-gallon drum of cyanide pellets, which is used to disintegrate gold for electroplating. Combine that with hydrochloric acid and you have a very potent death cloud. WMD's are basically anywhere you have industrial chemicals.

I just hope that they don't have chemical weapons. They will probably wind up killing alot more of their "own" people. Unlike Coalition troops, most Iraqis do not have access to NBC suits and equipment.

The insurgents killed 15 Iraqis the other day in Tikrit when they fired rockets that missed a US base and hit a hotel instead. What is going to happen when they unleash cyanide loaded motar shells in a crowded city? A scary thought.
