there was lots of news about not finding WMD but very little about the Danish finding morter shells containing mustard gas.

When I went to the Army's Officer NBC course, and EOD school at Redstone Arsonel I was taught that Mustard Gas was concidered a chemical weapon. Did I miss something.

Those canisters are so old news they were from the Iran / Iraq war and everyone knew he was using gas back then. So no they are not a reason for this war..... period.

Your grasping at old straws.

Uhhh, lets get this right, 10 years old, according to the Danes, that would put them about '93, that would be after the 1st gulf war.
Mustard gas has a shelf life a lot longer then 10 years and you don't destroy in by burring it. Actually you bury artillery/morter rounds to protect them from the heat. Anyway they weren't declaired nor distroyed. They's still chemical weapons no matter how you slice it.

I guess since it was left over from a different war, it doesn't really count, eh Kraig? That mustard gas is the most persistent stuff there is, as you probably know. When I was first in the National Guard, I was the unit's NBC NCO. (Big mistake!) I learnt more than I ever wanted to know about nerve, blister and blood agents.
I believe that I have heard that there are still areas left from WW I that are still not safe to go into today because of the mustard gas that was used by the Germans there. (Argonne Forest maybe?)

Finding the mustard gas cannister is positive
to substantiate the war so the media isn't
interested. They don't want to report anything
to make Bush look good.

The Answer in 3 words: Left leaning media. They have too much power, they are not accountable and basically untouchable. Same problem here,north of you. Dan in Alberta
