What to make of all this?

Earlier today I replied to one of scunnert's postings and we both agreed on the word barbaric in relation to fascism.

That random occurrence has lead me to post the following more for added information about the veracity of the events described, than anything else.

Just WTF happened at Baghdad Airport April 4-6th 2003?

For I fell for the propaganda screen at the time, well not so much fell as I could see the whole Saddam statue toppling malarkey was bollox, more switched off and therefore may have missed the clues.

Now regular readers of my inanity will remember that I do not subscribe to the usual legend about recent history, nuclear weapon development and usage as I posted a couple of months back.

Now after the last Big One apart from the tests and the upper atmospheric stuff, actual in the heat of the action use of the things never happened. There were accidents of course, too many to mention, and some of our hot heads fancied planting some nukes during the Korean Police Action and even Vietnam, but nothing actually went bang live.


Oh there were rumours of something having been used by someone in the Gulf 1991, and some may have been lost 1990/91 and recovered by unknown/onwanted parties, but no definite evidence of cabhoom!!!!


Then yesterday as I was looking for something else hidden in clear sight I came across this.


People flee Baghdad in night of hell


Iraq’s Mystery Weapon


Iraq warns of martyrdom operations at Baghdad Airport


US Takes Baghdad Airport as World Awaits Republican Guard Response


Iraq’s secrets are tumbling out


US accused of using neutron bombs


Did U.S. use neutron bomb in Battle of Baghdad?

And a whole lot of blog noise here, here, here, here, here & here.

“According to a November 2003 study by the Uranium Medical Research Center, witnesses living next to Baghdad airport reported a huge death toll following one morning’s attack from aerial bursts of thermobaric and fuel air bombs. Since then, a vast area has been "landscaped" by US earth movers, and fenced. Jo Wilding, a British human rights observer in Baghdad, has documented a catalogue of miscarriages, hair loss, and horrific eye, skin and respiratory problems among people living near the area. Yet the US and Britain steadfastly refuse to allow the International Atomic Energy Agency to conduct systematic monitoring tests for uranium contamination in Iraq.” Pilger

Heavy hauling at the airport.


For if any of this is neutron stuff is true then my fears for Af/Pak are now increased by an order of magnitude!!!
