"OUR germs in Iraq's arms--US sent ingredients in 1980's "

  1. Interesting news in AOL's news this morning.

    That's the headline. It seems it is coming to light that we sent three strains of anthrax, six strains of botulism (3 of the paralyzing kind), and three strains of gas gangrene to Iraq during the 1980's when they were at war with Iran, so the article says.

    Oh yes, and the West Nile Virus.

    What allies we make! Robert Byrd of WV asked, "are we now reaping what we've sown? Do we now have to make war to destroy the biological weapons created with the ingredients we gave the Iraqi's in the 80's?"

    Have the chickens come home to roost?

    Is it any wonder other countries critisize us for not being able to make long-term policy?

    Who wants to fight this war building by building in Baghdad?
    What a mess !

    Those of you who can get this article.... it's an interesting read.
