The U.S. Has Repeatedly Falsely Accused Others of Chemical and Biological Weapons Use

Shouldn’t We Be Cautious … Given the Repeated Bogus Claims?

In 1981, the U.S. accused the Soviets of supplying chemical weapons to Communist states in Vietnam and Laos for use in counterinsurgency warfare. It turned out that the “yellow rain” which the U.S. became hysterical about was actually honeybee feces.

The U.S. bombed a chemical weapons factory in Sudan in 1998. It turned out that it only made pharmaceutical drugs.

The U.S. accused Iraq of possessing chemical weapons … even though everyone knew that it didn’t.

Government officials confirm that the white House tried to link the anthrax attacks to Iraq as a justification for regime change in that country, even though it was obvious that there was no connection to Iraq.

And the U.S. accused the Syrian government of using chemical weapons a couple of months ago … but the evidence points away from such a claim.

Given the history, shouldn’t we be cautious about chemical weapons claims … especially when experts are skeptical?
