Chemical weapons in Syria- - - -deja vu?

TeachTeach Senior MemberPosts: 18,428 Senior Member
Does anybody remember the big flap over what happened to Saddam Hussein's alleged stockpile of chemical weapons and other so-called "WMD's"? The dummycraps got huge amounts of mileage from calling GWB a liar when the expected supply of those weapons failed to be discovered after the fall of Iraq. Of course, rumors of a massive transfer of WMD's to Syria shortly before the American invasion were conveniently ignored, even when sattelite photos showed huge convoys headed for the Syrian border.

I wonder how the current concerns about chemical/biological weapons will be swept under the rug when Assad actually uses those weapons in a desperate attempt at survival? Maybe "Bush Lied" wasn't the case after all! The dummycraps will never admit it, though!

    I remember the flap well. Also the bumper to bumper truck convoys going into Syria before the war started. I also remember a couple years back they had an 'accident' at one of the storage facilities that they tried to pass off as some standard munitions exploding, but the cleanup was in full dress out Hazmat type gear.

    And the same libtards that spew the 'Bush Lied' line conveniently ignore the FACT that Saddam use chemical and probably biological weapons on the Kurds and some other tribes he didn't like.

    Funny how the majority of the people in the world in general, and the U.S.A. in particular, are willfully blind to the FACT that any pesticide factory can easily make chemical weapons just by using higher concentrations of the active ingredients of the stuff that kills insects. And certain herbicides are also quite efficient nerve agents as is, or when in concentrated form. And the kicker is that BOTH are easily absorbed by breathing and by direct skin contact.

    We told Saddam we were comming for a year while we seeked permission from the UN (BIGGEST FREAKIN' MISTAKE WE EVER MADE). Anybody really thinks he didn't clean out his closets in that time????????????

    I think the biggest freakin' mistake we ever made was when we decided to support Iraq enthusiastically during the Iran-Iraq War in the 1980s. Saddam Hussain only got as far as he did because we ed up bigtime. Not surprising - the US government has a bad track record when it comes to trying to win allies by paying them off.

    I can't go that far because at the time some things seem to be a good idea. And you never know how they will turn out. I don't think the US realized what a snake Saddam was until later.

    But I do remember the Dummycrats BBQing GW Bush over this and all that time I'm saying to myself, I wonder if the WMDs went to Syria or Iran? Which way did they go George, which way did the go??? LOL!

    But seriosly, I know damn well there were WMDs in Iraq before the war and I know they went somewhere.

    Can't really stand John Daily much but one the best lines I ever heard was.

    No, supporting Iraq would never have been needed if Carter hadn't thrown the Shah under the bus to support a "religious leader". Iran was modernizing and moderating its tactics (albeit slowly) when he was ousted. Most of our modern issues in that region can be traced back to Carter's presidency.

    I remember back in '90 they actually had an Iraqi who said they had taken the seats out of a Boeing jet liner and flew repeated flights non-stop to Syria with WMD components. It got hushed up when they found out the info was forced from the guy by making him surf. I don't see what is so bad about being on a board in the water.... :wink:

    I got no problem with dirtbags getting a boardbath. Seems to work in shaking loose quality intel.

    Waterboarding takes too long. It' surprising how talkative people get after losing a couple of fingers one joint at a time.

    That is still nicer than being beheaded on TV. I still like the BlackJack Pershing method, bury every insurgent killed in a fresh pig skin.
