Breaking!!!! It Turns Out Saddam Really Did Have WMD!!!!

Well, we all knew this, already, but, it’s a bit fascinating when team Zero has to admit it.

The Telegraph seems to have a rolling post about the events in Iraq. 

Iraq crisis: Isis jihadists ‘seize Saddam Hussein’s chemical weapons stockpile’ – live

You have to scroll down a bit ……

17.09 Chemical weapons produced at the Al Muthanna facility, which Isis today seized, are believed to have included mustard gas, Sarin, Tabun, and VX.

Here is the CIA’s file on the complex.

QuoteStockpiles of chemical munitions are still stored there. The most dangerous ones have been declared to the UN and are sealed in bunkers.

Although declared, the bunkers contents have yet to be confirmed.

These areas of the compound pose a hazard to civilians and potential blackmarketers.

Numerous bunkers, including eleven cruciform shaped bunkers were exploited. Some of the bunkers were empty. Some of the bunkers contained large quantitiesof unfilled chemical munitions, conventional munitions, one-ton shipping containers, old disabled production equipment (presumed disabled under UNSCOM supervision), and other hazardous industrial chemicals.

17.05 The Chemical Weapons Convention, which Iraq joined in 2009, requires it to dispose of the material at Al Muthanna, even though it was declared unusable and “does not pose a significant security risk”

However, the UK goverment has acknowledgeded that the nature of the material contained in the two bunkers would make the destruction process difficult and technically challenging.

Under an agreement signed in Baghdad in July 2012, experts from the MOD’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) were due to provide training to Iraqi personnel in order to help them to dispose of the chemical munitions and agents. ….

16.52 The remaining chemical weapons from Saddam Hussein’s regime are stored in two sealed bunkers, both located at the Al Muthanna Chemicals Weapons Complex, a large site in the western desert some 80km north west of Baghdad.

This was the principal manufacturing plant for both chemical agents and munitions during Saddam Hussein’s rule.

Thousands of tonnes of chemical weapons were produced, stored and deployed by the Saddam Hussein regime. Iraq used these weapons during the Iran – Iraq War (1980 to 1988) and against the Kurds in Halabja in 1988.

16.32 Isis jihadists have seized a chemical weapons facility built by Saddam Hussein which contains a stockpile of old weapons, State Department officials have told the Wall Street Journal:

QuoteU.S. officials don’t believe the Sunni militants will be able to create a functional chemical weapon from the material. The weapons stockpiled at the Al Muthanna complex are old, contaminated and hard to move, officials said.

Nonetheless, the capture of the chemical-weapon stockpile by the forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, known as ISIS or ISIL, the militant group that is seizing territory in the country, has grabbed the attention of the U.S.

“We remain concerned about the seizure of any military site by the ISIL,” Jen Psaki, the State Department spokeswoman, said in a written statement. “We do not believe that the complex contains CW materials of military value and it would be very difficult, if not impossible, to safely move the materials.”

In other news, Zero and team and others from around the world are calling on Iraq to form an “inclusive” government.  Here’s Zero ….

Iran can play a constructive role if it’s helping to send the same message to the Iraqi government that we are sending, which is that Iraq only holds together if it’s inclusive and if the interests of Sunni, Shia and Kurd are all respected... If Iran is coming in simply as an armed force on behalf of the Shia then that probably worsens the situation and the prospect of a government formation that would actually be constructive over the long term.

Right, you idiot.  They have Sunni beheading Shia and doing all sorts of atrocities.  It’s probably reasonable to expect an Iraqi government to suddenly opening even more to shared control with the Sunni. 

This simply denies the reality of what is happening at the moment.  Sure, it sounds nice, and hopefully, that will be the eventual outcome, but, that’s not going to happen, right now, if ever.

    I wonder how that worked out the first couple of times? Yeah it didn’t, but try and try again, maybe some day, More than likely it will work out. Note the weasel words I used there. 😆 just in case!

  2. Me says:

    Now looking at from a different perspective, expect the LSM to go full blame Bush soon. Wait for it, I can almost hear the talking points right now.

  3. leftinflagstaff says:

    Heh. Obama’s reason for going back into Iraq: WMDs.

  4. tom0mason says:

    The problem as I see it is that the chemical plants were, in Saddam’s days, said to be making insectisides. The problem is that much of the chemicals and processes for making one is the same as the other.

    A casual mention of the fertilizer plant in a business website 2012

    Those WMD’s were sold to Saddam by France and Germany over the years with the tacit approval of the US since Saddam was our boy. Yes, it is tragic what is happening there, but the world would have been far better off if Saddam had been left in charge.

    Like Global warming – no facts are going to convince those religiously braying the party line.

  8. Latitude says:

    …remember when they found all those rockets with “made in France” all over them

    A disturbance in the Force: First Rodham is found out to have defended a child rapist successfully – so far no surprise – but now THE DAILY BEAST lets the victim speak out. I mean – what’s wrong with satanist leftist websites these days? What with obedience to the Cause?

    • kim2ooo says:

      hmmmm… You do realize that is the Child victim speaking out? NOT THE RAPIST?

      She stated that after hearing the tapes, she went into her room and cried, but she is now ready to stand up to Clinton:

      I think she wants to be a role model being who she is, to look good, but I don’t think she’s a role model at all. … If she had have been, she would have helped me at the time, being a 12-year-old girl who was raped by two guys. She did that to look good and she told lies on that. How many other lies has she told to get where she’s at today? If she becomes president, is she gonna be telling the world the truth? No. She’s going to be telling lies out there, what the world wants to hear.

    • kim2ooo says:

      AHaaa… I think I lost your sarcasm…. I’m so sorry. 🙂

    OUR PROBLEM – IN ONE PICTURE

      And a wonderful comment

      “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, …” Jer 1:5 KJV

  12. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    Given how the ISIS guys in Iraq are happily beheading people all over the place one might think this would be a mitigating factor in this court case. But apparently not:

    A teenage girl and 39-year old man who desecrated an Edinburgh mosque by attacking it with strips of bacon have both been jailed. Chelsea Lambie, 18, from Paisley, was sentenced to 12 months and Douglas Cruikshank, from Galashiels, to nine months. They attached bacon to door handles and threw strips inside Edinburgh’s Central Mosque.

    Here in Australia you have to run over someone and kill them with an expired driver’s licence whilst drunk to merit a year in the pen. In Scotland all you need to do is throw some slices of bacon through a doorway.

    I think people in Iraq may actually be more sane than people in Scotland, or at least the judges probably are.

    • DirkH says:

      Muslims in the EU are untouchable; they, on the other hand, can kill us without ever going to jail (I can provide examples). This is de facto EU wide policy. The EU cleptocrats know that we hate them for it and hate us back.

    Pamela Geller and others on Hannity. Heated debate with a dhimmi.
