i cant open the link you attached
Do you mean the saddam book link? I have no problem getting in. The problem isn't w the site. It must be your filtering/security software.
im sure youd agree that not every nation should have detailed information on how to construct a nuclear program, or a chemical weapons program, etc....wouldnt you?
that report included detailed accounts of how and where they attained the chemical and biological agents needed for their weapons,
Ok, but since the us govt was cosy w saddam for yrs, supplying much of the chemicals, expertise, and was mute while he gassed iranians and curds, it would also embarrass the us and britain.
they were empty warheads......
You mean empty missiles w bird crap build up on them? What is a warhead without a warhead?
if you were being sarcastic, then what would the purpose of his actions be (giving his people a false sense of what they are facing)? is this course "logical"?
He wouldn't be the first politician to have lied to his people. Politicians are very good at survival. The better they are at it, the higher they are able to crawl up the heap. Prevaricating is just one of many strategies they use they use even when their circumstances aren't as dire as are saddam's. Yes, i think it shows logic, though, i could never be a politician.
Remember as well, that saddam seems to be cultivating european support from countries like russia. Controlling opinion in his home front is only one tactic in multiple maneuvres. What w all of this, he may actually think he can survive this thing. He certainly won't give up without fighting on all levels to his last breath.
