CHEMICAL WEAPONS FOUND IN IRAQ

CHEMICAL WEAPONS FOUND IN IRAQ: A few thoughts:

1. Gee, chemical weapons in Iraq–there’s a shock, huh?
2. It’s about time, huh?
3. What’s with the scare quotes around “chemical weapons”? Do Reuters and the BBC pay their reporters bonuses if they use more quotation marks??

This Reuters “article” has “more”.

UPDATE: Meanwhile, Glenn Reynolds writes the US has found evidence that Russian firms exported night-vision goggles and radar-jamming equipment to Saddam Hussein.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Reynolds has some thoughts on the chemical weapons, along the lines of opinion #1, above.
