Since you seemed interested in "Other stuff"
I'll cross post something else that was on the CPF0000 list.

What is everybody's view on this(below 3 snips)?

What percent of the people of the United States do you think know the

What do you think the average honest person on the street would think of
disarming theses people (Using the "Shock and Awe" attack planned) of the
very same weapons that Reagan and Bush Sr. gave them.(remember Bush Sr. was
CIA director part of that time)

Does this make us hypocrites?
Honest diagloge requested. (read all links before starting discussion
please, not just snippets)


The "smoking gun" has been found, not in Iraq but in Washington. In the
actions of Donald Rumsfeld (see photo) and Dick Cheney.

....Reports by the US Senate's Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban
Affairs, overseeing American exports policy, show the successive
administrations of Reagan and Bush Sr. sold materials including anthrax, VX
nerve gas, West Nile fever germs, and botulism to Iraq right up until March
1992, as well as germs similar to tuberculosis and pneumonia. Other nasty
germs were also sold. Saddam used these weapons of mass destruction on the
human waves of Iranian children-soldiers in the Iran-Iraq War of the 1980s
and on the Kurds in Northern Iraq.

Supposedly, the use of chemical warfare was outlawed in the 1925 Geneva
Protocol. The entrepreneurial spirit of the U.S. and European corporations
that make these horrible weapons and the intense U.S. hatred of Iran at the
time made it easy to forget old laws. So Saddam got his weapons of mass

Today there are estimates of approximately 100,000 Gulf War veterans
receiving disability compensation for Gulf War Syndrome. Perhaps Rumsfeld
can shed some light on these ailments.

Now he wants to send our citizens to possibly face weapons he helped
provide for the enemy. It's interesting that the administration will drag
out the charge of "traitor" when citizens speak out against the war, yet
not for one who was instrumental for arming our enemy.



Bio-Warfare And Terrorism
While this fight was going on, the Reagan administration authorized at
least 40 shipments of weapon-specific biological agents to Iraq from the
American Type Culture Collection, which is a large scientific institute.
The Collection cultures every known type of disease for scientific
purposes. It was clear that the Reagan administration was shipping all of
these materials to Iraq knowing full well that Iraq was going to develop
biological weapons and use them against Iran. [5]



Full List Of US Weapons Suppliers To Iraq
The report gives us a complete overview of these supplies for the first
time. In particular it names the 24 US companies and when and to whom in
Iraq the supplies were delivered. And it makes clear how strongly the
Reagan and the first Bush administrations supported the arming of Iraq,
from 1980 up to the Gulf conflict of 1990/91. Substantial construction
units for the Iraqi nuclear weapon and rocket programs were supplied with
permission of the government in Washington. The poison Anthrax for the
arming of Iraq with biological weapons stemmed from US laboratories. Iraqi
military and armament experts were trained in the US and there received
know-how having to do with their domestic arms programs.
