Actually we liberated the Iraqis and told them to give us our guns and only print propaganda that we like. So far we've given lucrative contracts to US-based multinationals and the Iraqi people have received LESS reliable electricity, LESS potable water, LESS security on the street . . . but they do have an autocrat running the country from a palace and a handpicked advisory council . . . damn Iraq already had that.

These trucks were sold to Iraq by the British in the late 80's. The British designed the trucks for the production of Hydrogen for weather balloons, the advantage with the hydrogen producing trucks is quite simple really, the trucks can remain in remote locations for extended periods. There would also be a safety advantage, carrying Hydrogen around in large quantities, in a compressed state, in scorching hot temperatures, likely is not a good idea.

Give it up liberal. The British are probably lying. They want to cover up the fact that they sold those trucks to the Iraqis to produce biolgical weapons. Everyone knows tanker trucks of Hydrogen are much safer than mobile generators. Thier are pieces missing to the puzzle. Saddam was bad, everyone knows he had WMD...no one can be proven to have lied...
