SELF-FULFILLING PROPHECY: According to the Washington Post:
U.S. troops raiding a warehouse in the northern city of Mosul uncovered a suspected chemical weapons factory containing 1,500 gallons of chemicals believed destined for attacks on U.S. and Iraqi forces and civilians, military officials said Saturday. ...

Boylan said the suspected lab was new, dating from some time after the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. The Bush administration cited evidence that Saddam Hussein's government was manufacturing weapons of mass destruction as the main justification for the invasion. No such weapons or factories were found.
Remember that, once before, our legions claimed to have found Iraqi chemical weapons that turned out not to be. If this is true, it reminds me of an exchange in the movie Addams Family Values. When another girl at camp asks Wednesday why she is dressed in black as though someone had died, Wednesday says "Wait." Just as she did at the Thanksgiving pageant in that movie, the natives are now trying to scalp and burn the occupiers.
