During a three-day visit intended to upgrade ties between Germany and Israel, German Chancellor Angela Merkel addressed the Israeli Parliament. Tuesday marked the first time that a German chancellor spoke to the Knesset.
Merkel told the Knesset that it was up to Iran to convince the world that it is not building a nuclear weapon, and that Iran's acquisition of one would have "disastrous consequences" and "must be prevented."
Doesn't that have a familiar ring to it. For someone who is supposed to be an alienated ally, Angela Merkel sounds an awful lot like George Bush.
The United Nations concluded in 1999 that Saddam Hussein had biological weapons sufficient to produce over 25,000 liters of anthrax -- enough doses to kill several million people. He hasn't accounted for that material. He's given no evidence that he has destroyed it.
The United Nations concluded that Saddam Hussein had materials sufficient to produce more than 38,000 liters of botulinum toxin -- enough to subject millions of people to death by respiratory failure. He hadn't accounted for that material. He's given no evidence that he has destroyed it.
My emphasis above.
