Is the Danish discovery of Mustard Gas shells in Iraq positive news? Every military operation leaves lost heaps of Unexploded Munitions (UXM) to some extent. Even from routine activities, even in the United States. It would be extraordinary if there were no chemical warfare leftovers from Iraq's wars (internal and with Iran). So the fact that some of this has been found may show that the various search teams have been working effectively, and that the failure to find the expected substantial new weapons may actually be because there isn't much (or anything) new to be found? Belated welcome by the way for the new International Protocol on Explosive Remenants of War. Will the UK ratify soon?
