Joe Since you seemed interested in "Other stuff" I'll cross post something else that was on the CPF0000 list. John ---------- Forwarded Message ---------- What is everybody's view on this(below 3 snips)? What percent of the people of the United States do you think know the below? 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) <SNIP> 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 destruction. 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. http://www.interventionmag.com/cms/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=323&mode=thread&order=0&thold=0 <SNIP> Or <SNIP> 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.  http://www.rense.com/general33/warf.htm <SNIP> or <SNIP> 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. http://www.rense.com/general32/suppe.htm <SNIP>
