<quoted text>What the hell do you think Saddam used against the Kurds and Iranians?? Smelling Salt?? LIAR! This is how you stupid idiots manipulate the truth to cover your own ignorance. Iraq produced tons of biological agents all by its lonesome dummy. Iraq managed to produce anthrax, aflatoxin, botulinum toxin, gas gangrene, ricin, and wheat smut, and was also known to be working on cholera, mycotoxins, shigellosis, and viruses (including camelpox, infectious hemorrhaghic conjunctivitis and rotavirus) as well as genetic engineering. There are suspicions that Iraq was also working on smallpox.
Iraq denied that it ever had an offensive BW program until the defection of Hussein Kamal, Saddam Hussein's son-in-law and head of the WMD program in Iraq, in 1995. Even then, Iraq continued to hide as much information, equipment and material from UN inspectors as it could. Thus, many aspects of Iraq's biological weapon program remain unknown. These unknowns include the total amount of germ agent Iraq produced and the status of Iraq's unaccounted for stocks of biological growth media, agents, production equipment and handbooks, as well as munitions and warheads. Furthermore, inspectors say that Iraq became self-sufficient, meaning it no longer needed imports to fuel its BW program. The uncertainties that surround this program made it all the more threatening in the absence of inspections and monitoring.
Iraq's germ weapon program began at a single site "the Al-Hazen Institute" in the 1970s. By the end of the 1980s, Iraq had several more dedicated sites (Al Salman, Al Muthanna, the Technical Research Center at Al Salman, and Al Hakam among them) and had broadened the scope of its research to include just about every major weaponized germ and many viruses. In the late 1980s, Iraq began field tests, although new germs and new sites were still being added. Iraq had also weaponized germ agents before the first Gulf war, and some weapons had even been deployed. Little of this activity was discovered by the UN inspectors until 1995.
By 1989-1990, both Al Hakam and Daura (Al Manal) were producing botulinum toxin on an industrial scale. By September 1990, Iraq had also achieved industrial-scale production of anthrax at Al Hakam and possibly at Al Manal. The activities undertaken in 1989 and 1990, which included field testing of aerial bombs, rockets and other munitions, the expansion of research and agent production, and the acquisition of additional facilities (Al Manal), have never been fully understood, and the inspectors were unable to draw conclusions about the full extent and scope of Iraq's program.

When Obama rushed to open US Embassy in Syria in early 2009, the Iranian regime were involved in the preparation of the Chemical WMDs warheads against Israel in Syrian bases as part of all-out war of the Mozlem Brother terrorists under the Iranian regime against Israel. It is clear that the pro-Iranian Obama will do nothing to stop the Iranian-Syrian WMD attack on Israel and will continue defending the Iranian regime from Israeli attack on its nukes. The bluffer Obama is playing double game behind our backs aiming at isolating Israel and surround Israel with the Mozlem Brother enemies that seek converting Jerusalem to the center of the Caliphate under the Iranian nuke superpower agenda of Obama. However, the self loathing liberal Jews of America will continue to support the Mozlem Brother Messiah Obama who undermines Israel security behind our backs and organizing the Mozlem Brother for Jihad war.
Do you have any clue at all, this makes absolutely no sense and no logic to it at all just your lunatic raving of bigotry and prejudice.

Educated Folks! Always Remember "And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free!!" I always find these imbecilic egotistical nutjobs give themselves names like scumbag LYING nutjobs "Reality Check"; "Lil' Joey Liar Seeker"; "Reality is always best"; "Olivia Crumwell"; "The Professor'; "Truth"; The Prophet"; "Truth Seeker"; "The Observer" are deranged uneducated low IQ Brainwashed Low Life Nut Cases! They are on some big huge ego trip all the time and think nobody notices their ignorance! It's obvious the clowns have never had any formal education what-so-ever but like to think they have! Everything they post is always 180 degrees off what a normal educated person would think, believe and understand! There is never any rational thinking and researching facts is out of the question as it never crosses their little pea brain in their little world of make believe! It's a sad situation as these clowns go around making themselves look like complete fools and imbeciles every time they post something! THEY NEED MENTAL HELP AND SOUND LIKE A RAVING LUNATICS!!
