W(not-so)MD

If anybody asks, a roadside bomb made with an old sarin-filled artillery shell from the Iran-Iraq war does not mean weapons of mass destruction have been found. We know that Saddam used chemical weapons against the Kurds and Iranians. The operative word is mass destruction, as in killing thousands of people at once.

Actually, I remember reading somewhere that chemical weapons can't really even be counted as WMDs, because they're relatively easy to deal with. (see Aum Shinrikyo)
