There is evidence. The WikiLeaks dump, the pdf document I posted a link to, etc.

From what I read WikiLeaks confirms a level of WMDs far below what Americans were led to believe existed.
Led to believe by whom? Clinton?

Shortly... but it'll have more to do with the massive uncollatoralized securities fraud ponzi than it will any supposed Petrol Euro.

That's why Saddam said, "You're kidding, right?"

Fear needs no reason.

Americans are the dumbest Other-fkrs on the planet.

And, the most cowardly.

Some can define an airplane as a weapon of mass destruction.
Pretty sure it is well documented on the date of 9-11-2001.


There is that 3rd person Americans again, implying your not American.

No, the Wikileasks documents do not confirm anything, and the use of the phrase "WMD" is disingenuous. It's nothing more than a buzz-word used to frighten people. I doubt one could find a more ambiguous phrase.

Okay so, what if Iraq had anthrax? 5 pounds of Anthrax would infect three people and kill one. We know that because 5 pounds of Anthrax was floating around the US for a brief time around 9-11 and that's exactly what it did.

So, how exactly would Saddam be able to deliver 40,000,000 pounds of Anthrax to New York City? A fleet of 2,000 Hindenburg-style airshps?

Maybe CNN could show that on the tele. It'd be like watching 2,000 OJ Simpson SUVs rolling down the interstate at 1.3 mph.

Having, um, WMDs (snicker) is one thing, but having the capability to deliver them accurately to target is something else entirely different.

And the data in Wikileaks is what we call "raw intelligence data."

We saw all of the things in the Wikileaks docs on TV and what did we learn? Well, the canisters they though had chemical agents didn't really have chemical agents in them, and then these cannisters that were thought to have chemical agents in them had nothing in them at all, and then these artillery shells everyone thought were chemical weapons were actually smoke and flares, and then the other artillery shells thought to have chemical weapons did at one time actually have chemicals in them, but over time, because of heat, humidity, and and the reactivity of the chemicals, they broke down into constituent compounds that are inert (which is what happened to most of the chemical weapons in the US chemical weapons arsenal).

And the few chemical weapons they did find where what? Yeah, literally buried in the ground since the Gulf War. I'm sure they were properly maintained and serviced (right) and Iraqi artillery units had the special propellant charges used to fire them (that's right the propellant charges used for HE rounds are not the same as the special propellant charges used to fire the chemical rounds -- which is why they're "special").

So, what, this was supposed to be some kind of election special fear-mongering thread?

Where do you get such ridiculous information from?

Where is the poll that proves what you said?

Yes, they do. So does the rather lengthy pdf document I linked.

Incorrect. You missed the NTI/Center for Nonproliferation link posted earlier.
