Iraq Had No WMD

Well the news is breaking confirming what many of us knew at the time, that Iraq had no WMD, the supposed reason why the poodle blair and his master bush invaded Iraq. Indeed, if I remember correctly, the reason for the Iraq invasion changed more than once at the time.

Now it has been stated that blair and his cronies john Scarlett and Alistair Campbell colluded to produce documents that were a mass of lies to offer evidence as to why britain and america should invade Iraq. In actual fact it soon became evident that Iraq did not posses WMD and the forces should have withdrawn at that time but blair had already promised his master, before the subject of WMD arose that he would support him in invading Iraq.

So, blair, scarlett and campbell all knew before hand that Iraq did not posses WMD but lied, saying that the country did have them to justify invading it. 179 british service men died with many more injured yet the lying ba*****ds, blair scarlett and campbell are still free to go about their lives as they normally do. Is it not clear to the powers that be that the three have a strong case to answer for and should be hauled (screaming if necessary) before the courts to face justice for their murderous lies and actions?

Actually the US has been steadily decreasing the amount of oil it imports over the last 10 years, including Iraq:

Kije... the yanks are very canny when it comes to oil.... the chances are they have more than enough at home to fulfil their needs but prefer to import at the moment. When the world supply starts to run out, they won't be the ones caught short because they will open up their own fields for their own consumption....

 

That's my theory anyways!!

Well at least there has been one dodgy regime we didn't sell arms to.

Back in the 80's the British army developed a brand new camouflage material for dry and dusty places called 4 colour Desert DPM, it was very good indeed, state of the art.

Then, because we weren't going to fight in a desert environment ever again, they made just a few thousand uniforms from it and put them into storage.

In 1991 they needed desert uniforms fast for GW1 and went looking for them. No sign, they'd been sold off abroad since they'd never be needed.

To Iraq.

So we didn't sell 'em arms. Just our sleeves...

A report now says  that since the war there has been a large increase in babies with birth defects & cancer & is questioning  what the people of Iraq were exposed to during & after the war....is it from ordnance that has been used to bombard Iraq  or the result of what has been  unearthed in the destruction ?

my brother in law was in Iraq for the first gulf war. Before his unit were deployed to Kuwait prior to the land invasion they were stationed at Saighton near Chester and were all injected with a huge cocktail of drugs to fight various diseases and potential threats.... not long after he returned my sister in law got pregnant and gave birth to my niece; Natasha who was massively handicapped... despite best efforts she died when she was just a few years old....

 

My brother in law has had many other "mental" issues since returning from Iraq, and has always blamed the drugs they were given and a few of his fellow soldiers that went out with him had similar issues; kids with handicaps etc... "Gulf war syndrome" they called it and yes it does exist..... just that admitting it would cost too much in compensation these days!

That's terrible Baz - your family has my full sympathy.

 

The compensation culture has gone too far but if anyone deserves substantial financial recompense I would say it sounds as if they do. Not that any amount of money can make up for such a tragedy - admitting the fault would, I imagine, be more important but the money would  underline the fact that your relatives have suffered, there was fault and it is acknowledged that that is the case.

Think I mentioned Saddam using Western supplied stocks of chemical agents, which were used on the Kurdish seperatist, in the same way the British RAF did, in the 1920s, but hardly deliverable over such distances and in such quantities as the pre-war deception hype suggested.

Saddam was producing his own nerve gases, and we're now training teams of Iraqi specialists to decontaminate the production sites.

He also had the ability to deliver them over long distances.

The only reason he didn't load his Scuds with his nerve gases was that he knew the Israelis would have retaliated by turning him, his family - and most of Baghdad - into a sheet of radioactive glass.

Yes they did. The Canadian military amongst others found stockpiles of mustard gas shells, nerve agents, and the production facilities for both.

 

What Hans Blix and his bumblers didn't find was concrete evidence of nuclear WMD's - despite them knowing for a fact that Sadaam had spent hundreds of millions of dollars in the years immediately before the war buying high speed centrifuges and other equipment designed solely for the refining of weapons grade Uranium.

 

The Left wing press simply ignore the chemical WMD's which WERE found and focus on the nuclear WMD's which remained hidden.
