HERE WE GO AGAIN FOR THE HUNDREDTH TIME!! In May 2003 a 155 mm artillery shell IED sits on the side of Saddam Highway, Baya neighborhood of western Baghdad.. A female bomb tech wearing a 100 lb Kevlar suit examines the device which has a digital clock taped to the shell that had stopped at 11:30. She attaches a disrupter, a countercharge designed to separate the main explosive shell from the smaller, electrically activated blasting cap connected to the clock. After exploding the device the two bomb technicians go to collect any remaining evidence. The shell had leaked an amber colored liquid which exposed both technicians to its contents,a deadly nerve gas called sarin. The tech closest to the liquid collapses and the female tech drags him away from the liquid. The female technician managed to plunge a valium, atropine, obidoxime syrette into her stricken, convulsing partner and another into her own thigh, saving both of their lives. The 155 mm shell contained one gallon of sarin. If the clock had worked properly death would have come quickly to 10,000 Iraqi civilians living around the airport and 3000 coalition troops stationed at nearby camp Victory.That the bomb failed to detonate was due to the malfunction of a cheap, ten dollar wristwatch.The Yankees have been on nothing but a Wild Goose chase since the end of WW II: No WMD's in Irak, no communist take-over of the world from Vietnam, no attack from Cuba, no communist red hoards from Grenada .......
I think the United Snakes ought to remove the stars and stripes from their flag and replace them with Wild Geese!!!

"Documents discovered in 2003 indicated that Iraq stockpiled 21,000 chemical warheads following the Iran-Iraq war, and during the period of UN sanctions..........
Since 2004, Al Qaeda has carried out at least one hundred chemical attacks on coalition forces in Iraq. Most attacks used "repurposed' chemical warheads from Saddam's arsenal- nerve gas and mustard gas. If one believes the WikiLeaks trove, it confirms that Al Qaeda is in possession of chemical weapons and they have been used against US troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan....The "no WMDs in Iraq" myth has been allowed to persist because the truth is more disturbing. Since the 2003 invasion of Iraq, U.S and coalition forces have located and destroyed more than 500 chemcal weapons. Most of these have been 155 mm artillery shells. Most contained varieties of the vesicant HD,mustard gas. VX, sarin, tabun, cyclosarin, including advanced binary weapons ,chemical aircraft bombs, mortar projectiles, sprayers,,and bulk produced agen thave also been recovered and destroyed."
