    SYDNEY, Australia -- In a daring graffiti attack, two protesters have voiced their opposition to Australia's support of a U.S.-led attack on Iraq by painting "No War" in huge red letters at the top of the Sydney Opera House.

    A 42-year old British scientist and a 33-year-old Australian woman were later arrested and charged by police with malicious damage, local media reported.

    The graffiti on the highest sail of the ornate building made a mockery of the supposed increase in security at two of Australia's most readily identifiable landmarks, the opera house and nearby Sydney Harbour Bridge.

    Security was upgraded last November because of a perceived increased risk of terrorist attacks on Australian targets following the deadly bombings on the island of Bali.

    New South Wales Premier Bob Carr was quoted by Australian newspapers Tuesday as saying a report had been ordered to explain the security breach and its implications.

    The Australian government has agreed to commit troops to likely military action against Iraq following a formal request for support from U.S. President George W. Bush.

    Bush counts Australia among his "coalition of the willing", prepared to use force to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction.

    Public opinion on a possible war on Iraq is deeply divided with opinion polls showing about two-thirds of the public do not approve of a war that does not have U.N. backing.

    He's also four hundred feet tall and breathes fire.

    No one, not even the President is saying that iraq actually HAS nuclear weapons. It's amazing to me that with all the coverage of this that such a basic fact could slip by you. It's amazing what propaganda can do to the gullible. All you hear is the "rah-rah" fury without understanding even the most basic elements of this conflict. You then draw your own conclusions even though there is detailed information available on the subject everywhere you look.

    HEY SHEEP, of course I have. And I've obviously done a better job of looking for information than you have.

    Point me to one source that says that iraq actually HAS nuclear weapons. Sure they have an illegal nuclear program that has at different points in time been close (months or years away) to succesfully creating nuclear weapons, but according to pretty much EVERY source I've ever read they've never succeeded. So, what does the magic buzzwrod "weapons of mass destruction" actually have to do with anything?

    I'll repeat. Point me to a link that quotes any intelligence source as saying that iraq actually has nuclear weapons.

    I'll give you a source of my own-

    from http://www.whitehouse.gov/infocus/iraq/dec...cade/sect3.html

    If the white house, in full propaganda mode, isn't saying he HAS nuclear weapons, then he doesn't fucking have them.

    On Weapons of Mass Destruction

    35. How did U.S. corporations help Iraq obtain weapons of mass destruction?

    During its alliance with the United States in the 1970s and 1980s, Iraq had active programs producing chemical and biological weapons, and researching and working towards production of a nuclear weapon. These programs were actively and knowingly supported by U.S. corporations and the U.S. government, as revealed in 1994 House Banking Committee hearings. Those hearings revealed, among other things, that the American Type Culture Collection, a company outside of Washington DC, had provided Iraq with the seed stock for biological weapons agents including anthrax, botulinum, e-coli and many more, under license by the U.S. Commerce Department.

    A leak in the German newspaper die Tageszeitung of some of the 8,000 pages that Washington deleted from Iraq's December 7, 2002, arms declaration provided further information. The deleted sections documented 24 U.S. corporations, 55 U.S. subsidiaries of foreign corporations, and a number of U.S. government agencies that provided parts, material, training and other assistance to Iraq's chemical, biological, missile, and nuclear weapons programs throughout the 1970s and 80s, some continuing till the end of 1990. The U.S. corporations include Honeywell, Rockwell, Hewlett Packard, Dupont, Eastman Kodak, Bechtel, and more. U.S. government Departments of Energy, Commerce, Defense and Agriculture, as well as federal laboratories at Sandia, Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore, were also involved.

    A major front-page article in the Washington Post (December 30, 2002) further documented U.S. support for Iraq's WMD programs, especially the chemical program, including trade in weapons and other military goods. The article also detailed the active involvement of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, then a special envoy of President Reagan to Iraq, in reestablishing full diplomatic relations and improving trade and other economic ties that bolstered Washington's military support of Iraq.

    Other Republican insiders were involved in shady deals that helped build Iraq's WMDs. In 1989, news broke of a secret $4 billion loan made to Iraq by a U.S. branch of Banca Nazionale del Lavoro (BNL) of Italy, which at the time employed Henry Kissinger on its Consulting Board for International Policy. Congressman Henry Gonzalez, chair of the banking committee, also noted that an executive of Kissinger Associates met Saddam Hussein in Baghdad in June 1989 at a meeting in which the Iraqi leader apparently expressed interest in expanding commercial relations with the U.S. "Many Kissinger Associates clients received U.S. export licenses for exports to Iraq. Several were also the beneficiaries of BNL loans to Iraq," Congressman Gonzalez wrote in a letter to then-President Bush (senior). Iraq also used the BNL loans to attempt to buy difficult-to-manufacture nuclear weapons components.
