Details of an alleged plot by Saddam Hussein's regime to acquire the means to deliver weapons of mass destruction were laid out before a German court
yesterday. Two German businessmen went on trial in Mannheim, charged with supplying Iraq with equipment for the manufacture of a giant cannon.
After reading the indictment, the prosecutor, Stephan Morweiser, told reporters that the weapon would be "capable of firing not only conventional,
but also nuclear, biological and chemical weapons".
Iraq has dismissed the allegations as part of a plot inspired by Israel and the US.
This would n`t be the first time he has done this. Anyone remember when a UK company was caught smuggling parts for a super gun to Iraq in the late
80`s/early 90s (not too sure on the exact date). It would have given Saddam the ability fire over massive distances and deliver WMD.
Ahhh, the Germans that call us war-mongers....selling weapons to a madman. By the way, about 30 German companies were found to be dealing with Iraq
illegally in paperwork seized in Iraq. Of course, they go on TV preaching PEACE to us.
No your not understanding the extent to which your past support ie reagan, of him has helped in part to create this situation is lame. The people in
Reagans government should have relaised the long term repercussions of such actions but hey failed to do so and now we all pay the price for mistakes
made in the past
