Burning Irony

August 10th, 2003

In an ironic twist, while the Bush administration still cannot find even the barest hint of chemical or biological weapons in Iraq, here at home, in Alabama, the government is beginning to destroy parts of our chemical weapons stockpile, set to burn many tons of Sarin, VX and mustard gases. More than 8000 tons have already been burned, and the U.S. still has the largest WMD stockpile in the world.

Iraq, we must remember, is not the only country that has ever had a WMD program and the tendency to invade other countries…

    Nice point. I find it especially ironic that the Bush administration wants to develop “mini-nukes,” presumably because we could, uhm, use them at some point, but gets all worked up about the other nations of the world that are trying to make nukes and might possibly use them.
