If G dub wasn't a better than he is, he should hold a press conference, walk up ot the mic and say " I fraking told you jackinapes so", Drop the mic and walk off the stage.

    Exactly my thoughts when I saw that earlier.

    GW is too much the gentleman to do that, but somebody ought to do it for him.

    With any luck, the **** terrorists will stir up a dust in those places and breathe in enough stuff to end their worthless lives.

    Too much to wish for, sadly.

    But yeah, where the heck did these chemical weapons come from?

    Here is an actual article on the subject that's not just a headline with no details:

    http://online.wsj.com/articles/sunni-extremists-in-iraq-occupy-saddams-chemical-weapons-facility-1403190600
    "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."
    The Iraq Study group did find chemical munitions at Muthanna but determined that inspections by United Nations Special Commission, or Unscom, had ensured the facility was dismantled and remaining chemical stocks militarily useless and sealed in bunkers.
    "The only people who would likely be harmed by these chemical materials would be the people who tried to use or move them," said a military official.
    "Finding out that you have run out of toilet paper is a good example of lack of preparation, buying 10 years worth is silly"

    They think it would be very difficult for them to employ that stuff effectively.......wait a minute.......I know you need good delivery or dispersal means, but could you imagine the panic if they managed to unleash a few small canisters/vials in any major city. Just having small amounts detected would be the equivalent of say a 'Dirty Bomb' regardless of how many actually would die and cause maximum chaos.

    OK why aren't those complexes being bombed/bunker busters/incendiaries as we speak if there is ANY possibility they can use or make them work against Iraqis or any where else in the world?

    Were they found before and just bypassed as being not operational, small amounts not considered a threat?????

    This article says that officials don't believe they can build functional weapons from the stock pile found. Well nobody thought they could fly airliners into buildings either. Don't be naïve, these guys can do anything they set their minds too.
