03/24 21:07 CBS Says Republican Guards Authorized to Use Chemical Weapons By Nick Wells
Washington, March 24 (Bloomberg) -- The Iraqi government has authorized troops defending the capital to use chemical weapons once coalition troops cross a certain point, CBS News reported, citing unidentified U.S. officials.
The regime of President Saddam Hussein has ``drawn a red line on the map around Baghdad,'' CBS said on its Web site. ``Once American troops cross it, the Republican Guards are authorized to use chemical weapons.''
Allied forces have advanced to within 60 miles (100 kilometers) of Baghdad after facing another day of Iraqi resistance in the southern part of the country, U.S. military officials said. _______________________________________________
So Damn Insane doesn't have any chemical weapons though. How could this be. And to think our French buddies trusted So Damn.
Heard on Michael Regan's show that some Iraqi troops in the south have been issued shiny new gas masks. Now why would that be? Those bloody Brits don't plan on conducting chemical warfare do they, or maybe the U.S. is using some left over Agent Orange?
I know, just propaganda right. We choose to believe that honest, upstanding So Damn until proven otherwise.
