Where are the rest of them?

If Saddam had no weapons of mass destruction, then what are:





or these???

What country now holds the rest of Saddam's WMD? How soon before they turn up on the New York Subway or Yankee stadium?

Leftists have taken it as a matter of faith that no weapons of mass destruction exist or existed in Iraq. This faith may get us all killed.

News items and commentary appear regarding WMD every so often, which the left routinely ignores. Here is one such item from May of this year:
By "weapons of mass destruction," what liberals mean is: missiles pointed at Washington, D.C., with their "Ready to Fire" lights blinking ominously and their warhead payloads clearly marked "Weapons of Mass Destruction! Next Stop, The Great Satan America!" -- basically what you might see on an episode of the original Batman TV series. When we didn't find that, the "Bush lied, kids died!" screaming began.

David Kay's report said we hadn't found "stockpiles" of WMDs in Iraq, but we have found:

chemical and biological weapons systems, plans, "recipes" and equipment, all of which could have resumed production on a moment's notice with Saddam's approval;

reference strains of a wide variety of biological-weapons agents (found in the home of a prominent Iraqi biological warfare scientist);

new research on brucella and Congo-Crimean hemorrhagic fever, and continuing work on ricin and aflatoxin;

a prison laboratory complex for testing biological weapons on humans;

long-range missiles (prohibited by United Nations resolutions) suitable for delivering WMDs;

documents showing Saddam tried to obtain long-range ballistic missiles from North Korea;

facilities for manufacturing fuel propellant useful only for prohibited Scud-variant missiles.
Sorry to bore Fox News viewers with these facts. I'm doing it as a favor to readers of the Los Angeles Times.

I know also that U.S. and Polish forces found enough Sarin gas in Iraq to kill as many people as were killed on 9-11.

There is also speculation that Iraq's chemical weapons were hidden in Syria before the war started.
