PLAYTHINGS OF MASS DESTRUCTION

Oh sure, after it was divulged that Iraq's drone was nothing more than a glorified model airplane, folks in blogdom let out a collective laugh, pointing out that all manner of seemingly innocuous items could be used to our destruction. Well, who's laughing now?

For those of you too lazy to click on the link, here's a synopsis:

Nefarious evildoer, testing a new paper-based form of WOMD, causes $40,000 in damage.

And it was a German, at that! I'll bet they were in league with the Iraqis all the time.

Time for me to re-adjust my tinfoil helmet.

LETTER TO PRESIDENT CLINTON

January 26, 1998

That strategy should aim, above all, at the removal of Saddam Hussein's regime from power. We stand ready to offer our full support in this difficult but necessary endeavor.

It hardly needs to be added that if Saddam does acquire the capability to deliver weapons of mass destruction, as he is almost certain to do if we continue along the present course, the safety of American troops in the region, of our friends and allies like Israel and the moderate Arab states, and a significant portion of the world's supply of oil will all be put at hazard.

In the long term, it means removing Saddam Hussein and his regime from power. That now needs to become the aim of American foreign policy.
