I've Got Your WMD Right Here
and anti-Blair minions perpetually repeat the mantra that weapons of
mass destruction (WMDs) never existed in Iraq because we would have
found them by now if they had existed. Consider this. Toward the end
of WWI, Germany built 7 monster guns (one affectionately dubbed the
Paris Gun) that were capable of lobbing 264-pound projectiles into
the heart of Paris from 25 miles away. A 400-pound charge launched the
projectile into its 170-second trajectory from its 131-foot long, 380
mm barrel. 256 Parisians died from those WMDs. None of the guns, to
this day, have ever been found, yet photos and eye-witnesses proving
their existence are ample. I suppose Roosevelt and Eisenhower made up
stories about those WMDs to justify the D-Day invasion. We need an investigation!
