    Iraq: 'terrorists' seize ex-chemical weapons site

    Iraq: 'Terrorists' seize ex-chemical weapons site


    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The Islamic State extremist group has taken control of a vast former chemical weapons facility northwest of Baghdad, where remnants of 2,500 degraded chemical rockets filled decades ago with the deadly nerve agent sarin are stored along with other chemical warfare agents, Iraq said in a letter circulated Tuesday at the United Nations.

    The U.S. government played down the threat from the takeover, saying there are no intact chemical weapons and it would be very difficult, if not impossible, to use the material for military purposes.

    Iraq's U.N. Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim told U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in a letter that "armed terrorist groups" entered the Muthanna site on June 11, detained officers and soldiers from the protection force guarding the facilities and seized their weapons. The following morning, the project manager spotted the looting of some equipment via the camera surveillance system before the "terrorists" disabled it, he said.

    PressTV - ISIL funded by US to break up region: Analyst
    The US won’t even deliver fighter planes to Iraq that have been paid for. The US disarmed the Iraqi army years ago and never really rearmed it and currently Nouri al-Maliki is going to have to turn to the Russians and to Iran for help, because the US is actually helping this extremist Takfiri, too extreme for al-Qaeda, ISIL establish this bogus caliphate, smear Islam, and smash the countries of the region. That is the real policy here

    Why is the word terrorist in quotes? There is no question about what they are just more biased reporting trying to legitimize Islamic extremists

    All are screaming about a wall to keep out the boogie man. Anyone know how many tunnels are dug under the border? They are coming and there is nothing we can do.

    The proclamation of the caliphate by the jihadists of the Islamic State was rejected by the residents of Aleppo, including some members of the Free Syrian Army, who saw this act as a threat to the popular revolution.....snip~

    Because it's derived from a different quotation "armed terrorist groups" which they quote in the article. The source is Iraq's ambassador to the UN.

    AP doesn't write like your fw:fw:fw: shocking! emails. Quotation marks don't mean "we're skeptical that this is true." They mean "these words came from the indicated source."

    Everything's gotta be a goddamned conspiracy with some people...

    You think residue from old, decayed, and decontaminated chemical weapons containers is going to get shipped halfway around the planet and through a tunnel into the US?

    Wouldn't you think before you withdrew all your forces and ran like away that'd you spend some of the billions of dollars put into the effort to destroy a chemical weapons site - that until now the media never even noticed existed?

    They did destroy the contents of the site. That's why the article is talking about leftover residue left behind by decontamination protocols.

    Nothing a bit of heavier than air, long persistence poison gas pumped into the ground won't fix.

    Hell, you could just use pumps, pipelines, and sea water.
