Ok, how about this article talking about the Reagan Administration. You might remember during this time Iraq was an ally of the US and we were helping them in their war with Iran. We knew they were using illegal weapons (gas) as demonstrated by this quote from the article, <I>"The only occasion that Iraq's use of banned weapons seems to have worried the Reagan administration came in 1988, after Lt Col Francona toured the battlefield on the al-Faw peninsula in southern Iraq and reported signs of sarin gas. "When I was walking around I saw atropine injectors lying around. We saw decontamination fluid on vehicles, there were no insects," said Mr Francona, who has written a book on shifting US policy to Iraq titled Ally to Adversary. "There was a very quick response from Washington saying, 'Let's stop our cooperation' but it didn't last long - just weeks." </I> Ok, I can deal with that. This quote disturbed me a little though, <I>"Furthermore, in 1988, the Dow Chemical company sold $1.5m-worth (930,000) of pesticides to Iraq despite suspicions they would be used for chemical warfare."</I> We supplied them with the gas? Knowingly? This really frosted the situation, <I>"A 1994 congressional inquiry also found that dozens of biological agents, including various strains of anthrax, had been shipped to Iraq by US companies, under license from the commerce department."</I> And this one, <I>"The US provided less conventional military equipment than British or German companies but it did allow the export of biological agents, including anthrax; vital ingredients for chemical weapons; and cluster bombs sold by a CIA front organization in Chile, the report says."</I> We sold them Anthrax? Is there a commercial purpose for this stuff? Do you think anyone is going to jail on this one? I was wondering, exactly how big is the commission one gets for selling their soul to the devil like this?
