Soldiers of the Royal Irish Regiment found about a hundred chemical weapons protection suits and respirators in an Iraqi command post, said Adm. Michael Boyce, chief of the defense staff....
"We already know from Iraqi prisoners of war that protective equipment was issued to southern Iraqi divisions," Hoon added.
The discovery of the chemical suits was not conclusive evidence that Saddam Hussein planned to use such weapons, he said.
"But it is indicative of an intention, otherwise why equip his own forces to deal with a threat which he knows we do not have? So it must only be to protect his forces from his own use of those weapons which we know he has," Hoon said.
Uh, maybe Iraq is screwing with our heads?
I don't want to be naive. I think it's quite possible that Iraq has usable chemical and/or biological weapons, and that they may be used eventually in this war. I'm just wonder why this couldn't also just be psyops.
