vv OK Crakr. You win. The 70 shipments of biological and chemical weapons (including Anthrax) from the US to Saddam during the Iran-Iraq war was so that he could develop vaccines and treatments.

Like I said, you win. Whatever helps you sleep at night. Old thread is old, see ya round.

Davy: Anthrax is not 100% lethal as often claimed. Wool sorters inhale anthrax spores in small quantities continually. Anthrax normally attacks the lungs, because it must lodge in vulnerable tissue. It can invade through other routes such as cuts or undercooked meat, but it only does so under third world conditions.

Because of that, Laboratory anthrax has been distributed to many countries to develop vaccines and treatments to those affected by the natural sources of the spores.

Yeah yeah Crakr, I get the concept of Dual-Use. Fertilizer, fuel, bleach. Still fail to see the Dual-Use in supplying Iraq with Anthrax though... pretty sure it has only one use...

Another example: Are the people that sold Timothy McVeigh the fertilizer and fuel oil responsible for what he decided to do with it in Oklahoma City ?

The answer is of course, No.

davymid: The agents the US sold to Saddam during the Iran-Iraq war had a "Dual-Use" according to the Riegle report, That means they had a legitimate use as well. The agents sold were not 'weaponized`, Saddam`s chemists were responsible for that.

Also, Saddam used Mustard Gas on the Kurds. The US did not supply him with that.

An example of "Dual-use": You could sell Hydrogen Peroxide to a country for legitimate medical use, That countries chemists could then concentrate that H2O2 and use it to make explosives.
