:.gh|0|st.:Still say there are no WMDS in irag, think again.

Ahh... So, an aeroplane, buried in the sand is a WMD? Is that your point? Because, it would appear at this time, you do not have one.

:.gh|0|st.:"What military search teams eventually found at al taqqadum, in july 2003, were remnants of the iraqi air force as picture above: a reported 30 to 40 planes, including sveral MiG-25 SU-25 ground attack jets, buried more than 10 feet tons of soil covered with camouflage netting. According to the pentagon, at least one of the MiG-25s was found because searchers spotted its twin tail fins protuding out of the sand. Some of the planes had been wrapped in plastic sheeting to protect electronics and machinery from the sand (and some had their wings removed), but others were interred with little or no protection from the sand or the elements. The recovery teams had to use large earth moving equipment to uncover the aircraft. Still say there are no WMDS in irag, think again.

A couple of buried jets does not prove the WMD theory. The Iraqis were simply safe-guarding their jets, instead of having them blown to smithereens by Coalition aircraft. Even so, a MiG-25 is a high-altitude interceptor, not a ground attack aircraft like the Su-25 Frogfoot, unless its of the MiG-25RB variant, though highly doubtful. It is fitted only to carry air-to-air missiles to fire against enemy fighters and bombers. The Su-25 Frogfoot is another story, it is a ground attack aircraft capable of deploying WMDs, but no evidence of any such weapons have been found, so that can be written off the list. They're just a couple of burried jets, not the Iraqi ability to fire chemical and biological weapons in 45 minutes as stated pre-war by Coalition intel.
