Where are Saddam's WMD's???

If Saddam really had Weapons of Mass Destruction ( i.e. chemical or biological weapons that apparently threaten U.S. security, then why hasn't he used them yet?

Is it your military assessment that he should have used them already?

my opinion is that if saddam really had them as the U.S. insists, then i think he would have certainly used them. judging by saddam's character and past history, i think he would have used them, especially knowing that his downfall is edging closer and closer as troops surround Bagdad.

If he indeed has them, it would probably be best for him if he waited untill the last moment. Earlier use would 'legalize' this war and thus would not suit his PR campagne.

Hmmm,...there was a story on the radio about Iraq soldiers with new gasmasks . That could be a sign that Saddam will use WWD.

Hi Rono,

Nice flag on Iraq, pretty soon the whole region will be covered by the American flag as the U.S. continues their policy of controlling, sorry "liberating".

Perhaps the US military has been busy with fighting the war, not looking for the wmds.

Sooner or later, I believe, the WMDs will show up. My guess (and worst fear) is that Hussein will use it when he's at his most desperate at the last minute and take out as many as he can.

I thought not even the greatest cynic questions that Saddam has chemaical and/or biological weapons
I have seen dozens of interviews with all sort of people and at least they all agree on that

Having been through NBC (Nuclear Biological Chemical) Trraining, and seen the pictures of the blisters that some of these things cause, let's pray no one uses them.

Peace

yeah, most reports I've heard is that - as in the Iraq/Iran conflict, once Saddam started getting his ass beat and was almost at the last bitter end of defeat, then he whipped out the chemical and bio. weapons. They are expecting a similar circumstance here.

saddam also claimed to have no missiles that flew over 90 miles, as per the UN mandate... interesting though that he's launched numerous Scuds toward's Kuwait, seeing as those particular missiles fly well over 90 miles, and were never found by the un weapons inspectors.

I thought that it was later said those were not Scuds?

I don't know what he may or may not use, but I'm sure he has some stockpiled somewhere.

My opinion is that you probably don't know what the hell you're talking about and are just trying to stir shit up, not unlike the incredibly ridiculous questions being asked of General Franks by the Chinese reporter the other day.

Lilly is almost certainly correct as to why we haven't found them. I don't think searching for them is tops on the military's list of priorities right now.

Regarding why Saddam hasn't used them, it isn't in his best interest right now. When we get closer to Baghdad perhaps he will. Hopefully his grip on the nation will have slipped enough by then (in life or death) that they won't be used at all.

I don't think this kind of personal attack is called for.

You will not help your argument by resorting to insulting others on this board who may not agree with your views.

--> Dub is a girl.

I think Man Inside The Child is simply curious about this question, nothing wrong with that.

Mike, try maybe enlightening him constructively if you have an opinion about the subject instead of addressing him like you did.

3, 000 chemical suits and chemical weapons antidote found at hospital in Nasareah. Doesn't prove they have any of their own weapons, but definitely suspicious.

Never mind the chemical suits and antidote...the entire city of Baghdad is going to be stricken by cancer because of the burning oil.

And if it starts to rain, there's a good chance that the rain will sting.
