I have read and reread....again...the article could be referencing the same dual purpiose agricultural materials....it is not specific enough. It adds nothing new to the issue.

Thanks though....


Still waiting.

Dread....the " 's " are a sign that the lack of credible sources on the internet shows your argument is the strongest?

Come on....

Also....I started this thread to not derail another thread in FYM. Then ELVIS recommended its creation but I was a step ahead of him on it.. I have patiently waited for a shread of one ounce of CREDIBLE and VALID information. Since it is a popular claim here in FYM and WAR that the US created Saddam and the mess in Iraq

Rono has very nicely provided information about dual use technology. That does not indicate that the US armed Iraq.

Many times here in FYM people have said the US has given Iraq Weapons...including Elvis. Well, where is the evidence. Where are the BOOKS that I can read offline. Where are the credible sources, that do not contain "deleted" footnotes.

I was asked to create this thread....and only one member, Rono has been respectful enough to respond. I may not agree with the sources, or the conclusions, but they do not conclusively prove the US armed Iraq.

Certainly not based on the wealth of sources that others have provided about France, Germany, China, and Russia.

But, since I was not aware that the smiley was an offensive symbol, I will not use it anymore. Maybe the smiley symbols should be elimiinated.

There....rant over.

I wasn't even aware that the US government denied that (parts needed to manufacture/) weapons had been sold to Iraq

and what kind of evidence are you looking for anyway?
receipts with signatures?


I have plenty of clients who are bar owners etc
I can't prove it, but I know that none of them are declaring their entire income
everyone knows that
and I doubt that I could find the proof that they do on the net somewhere

I think that was angie's point
you don't exactly "win" an argument because no one was able to produce conclusive evidence

I don't support accusations based on nothing in any way
but if we can't debate something - that many believe to be true - because there is no exact proof then we could just as well delete the entire Free your mind forum
