This is an excellent point. What anti-war researchers should do both in
Europe and the USA is to compile a list of 'weapons of mass destruction'
that have been supplied to and are held by other countries in the Middle
East, especially those close to the USA, and also to compile a list of the
manufacturers that have provided them. It would be very interesting to see
how much more weaponry, of both a lesser and bigger variety, these countries
hold compared to Iraq, even when the latter was at the peak of its power.
