In an effort to explain why no chemical or biological weapons had been found in Iraq, the US defence secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, said yesterday the regime may have destroyed them before the war.
Speaking to the New York-based Council on Foreign Relations thinktank, he said the speed of U.S. advance may have caught Iraq by surprise, but added: "It is also possible that they decided that they would destroy them prior to a conflict."
Somewhere deep in an Iraqi bunker... The Americans are coming! Quickly, destroy all the weapons we've been hiding from them so history won't look bad on us... but we'll all be dead from a smart bomb anyway... and we're destroying the weapons we were hiding which is the reason they're coming... and we're disarming in the face of an invasion. Does anyone think this plan has a few flaws?
