[] Theran Times: U.S. Unloading WMD in Iraq,

Scheint mir ein Fall von präemptivem Informationsangriff auf die
US/UK-Waffensucherei zu sein. Man rechnet offenbar im Iran damit, dass
die Kaolition demnächst (vor der US-Wahl) WMDs im Irak präsentieren
Andererseits könnte natürlich auch was dran sein an der Geschichte -
aber uns postmodern geschulte Leser interessiert ja vor allem das
Perception-Managment daran, egal ob es wahr ist oder nicht. ;-)

U.S. Unloading WMD in Iraq 

TEHRAN (Mehr News Agency) - Over the past few days, in the wake of the
bombings in Karbala and the ideological disputes that delayed the
signing of
Iraq's interim constitution, there have been reports that U.S. forces
unloaded a large cargo of parts for constructing long-range missiles and
weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in the southern ports of Iraq.

A reliable source from the Iraqi Governing Council, speaking on
condition of
anonymity, told the Mehr News Agency that U.S. forces, with the help of
British forces stationed in southern Iraq, had made extensive efforts to
conceal their actions.

He added that the cargo was unloaded during the night as attention was
focused on the aftermath of the deadly bombings in Karbala and the
of Iraq's interim constitution.

The source said that in order to avoid suspicion, ordinary cargo ships
used to download the cargo, which consisted of weapons produced in the
and 1990s.

He mentioned the fact that the United States had facilitated Iraq's WMD
program during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq and said that some of the weapons
being downloaded are similar to those weapons, although international
inspectors had announced Saddam Hussein's Baath regime had destroyed all

The source went on to say that the rest of the weapons were probably
transferred in vans to an unknown location somewhere in the vicinity of
Basra overnight.

"Most of these weapons are of Eastern European origin and some parts are
from the former Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc. The U.S. obtained
through confiscations during sales of banned arms over the past two
decades," he said.

This action comes as certain U.S. and Western officials have been
out the fact that no weapons of mass destruction have been discovered in
Iraq and the issue of Saddam's trial begins to take center stage.

In addition, former chief UN weapons inspector Hans Blix has emphasized
the U.S. and British intelligence agencies issued false reports on Iraq
leading to the U.S. attack.

Meanwhile, the suspicious death of weapons inspector David Kelly is also
unresolved issue in Britain.

------Occupation Forces Official Claims to Have No Information About
Transfer of WMD to Iraq -------

A security official for the coalition forces in Iraq said that he has
received any information about the unloading of weapons of mass
in ports in southern Iraq.

Shane Wolf told the Mehr News Agency that the occupation forces have
received no reports on such events, but said he hoped that the coalition
forces would find the Iraqi weapons of mass destruction one day.

Coalition forces and inspectors have so far been unable to find any
weapons of mass destruction. The U.S. invaded Iraq under the pretext
Iraq possessed a stockpile of weapons of mass destruction.
