No chemical weapons, BUT...
Reuters reports that German soldiers conducted tets on Iraqi missiles fired at Kuwait and found no evidence of chemical weapons.
The German Defense Ministry said on Saturday an examination conducted by German soldiers on an Iraq missile fired at Kuwait found no signs of biological or chemical weapons. A spokesman for the ministry in Berlin said a team of German chemical, nuclear and biological weapons experts had examined the remains of the missile on Friday.
First of all, the Germans wouldn't admit it if they DID find them, because that would prove they are twits for opposing the war in the first place.
The proof? SADDAM ISN'T SUPPOSED TO HAVE SCUDS EITHER!! The Scuds are every bit of a violation as any chemical weapon.
Apparently, the French are sending a chemical weapons detection unit to Qatar as well.
Do I smell a cover-up here?
Aftermath, Part 2...
The two other post-war offensive fronts the left will try to pursue are increased terrorism and skepticism of any evidence of WMDs found by the troops.
In the first case, the news media will play up any and every connection between terrorists and the defeat of Iraq. Any terrorist act in the world - whether or not the terrorists involved have anything to do with Iraq - will be held up as evidence of failure of the war. Even though al-Qaeda undoubtedly has assets and terrorists hiding out worldwide, the mere mention of one somewhere on the face of the planet will be trumpeted by the left as a failure of the war, similar to the "why didn't we go to Baghdad and finish the job" comments the left was making after Desert Storm. Of course, they'll conveniently forget thier long-standing claim that there supposedly isn't any connection whatsoever between Iraq and al-Qaeda.
When evidence of WMDs are found, they'll pass them off as minor. In another variation, they'll jump up and down and cry, "if you knew where they were, why didn't you tell the inspectors? That would have built international support!"
