Ok I know I said I wasn't going to comment on this video but I just had to say something about this statement by Patrick Lang (Former Chief of Middle East Intelligence, at the DIA).

"Chemical weapons, although they can be very deadly in a subway station (or something like this) are not really strategic weapons. They are weapons that can kill 50, 100, 200 people but they won't devestate you the way a nuclear weapon...."

Hm. Really. So, deploying and using Chem weapons didn't bring the Iranians to their knees during the Iran/Iraq war? Chem weapons didn't kill thousands on thousands of kurds in their homes, villages and anywhere else people happened to be? WTF?

Then they go on to mention how we intercepted some radio com's between some IRaqi Generals and how those interecepts were B$ because Iraqi's would never speak out in the open over their radios. Well, they were intercepts, decoded messages... that we INTERCEPTED and DECODED. Goddamn it. The russians do it to us, we do it to them, everyone decodes messages. That's why everyone tries to encode them in the first place. fg!
