Finding WMDs

O.C. said...
In the summer of 2003, construction workers in China accidentally dug into a cache of chemical weapons left behind by the retreating Japanese army in '44 or '45, resulting in fatalities, lawsuits, and much hard feelings between the two countries.

That same summer, construction workers in Berlin accidentally found an underground Nazi-era bunker that had been hidden since 1945, which contained bombs, ammunition, and several intact, armed, and fueled aircraft.

The point is, chemical and biological weapons take up very little space, and unless you know exactly where to start looking, a hidden underground bunker can remain hidden for a very long time.
Besides making "Iraqi Backhoe Operator" the most dangerous job description in the world for the next few decades, this also means that it is *way* too early to declare that Iraqi WMDs never existed.

Just ask the French, who are still digging up live and lethal mustard gas shells from World War I.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I do believe that Mr. Original has hit that nail squarely upon the head! We have no idea what's out in the vastness that is Iraq. Considering the fact that we've already found some WMDs, that we've found things that were buried in a hurry, and have people formerly of the administration saying they're out there, I'm putting my money on the fact that they're out there somewhere.
