Weapons of Mass Hypocrisy


| July / August 2003

While U.S. military personnel searched for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, an international team of weapons inspectors began touring the United States to draw attention to America?s stockpile of WMDs. As Adbusters (March/April 2003) reports, the Rooting Out Evil coalition (www.rootingoutevil.org) says the U.S. satisfies all of President Bush?s criteria for a dangerous state: It has a stockpile of chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons; it has refused to sign and honor international treaties; it has ignored United Nations directives; and its leader was not elected by popular vote. The campaign hopes to highlight the hypocrisy of the Bush administration by confronting U.S. weapons manufacturers in the months ahead.
