WMD in Iraq
In researching the recent post on Iraqi WMD and the associated lies of the left and their fellow travellers, I came across an interesting but as yet unnoticed piece of intelligence which goes to show Germans actually have a sense of humour - I think..
If you search very diligently you might find some of the many drums of cyclosarin discovered during the invasion by the US infantry were shipped to Iraq in amongst agricultual machinery manufactured by the company Fahr IG. (Fahr make some excellent equipment which I recall from my parents' farm, fifty years ago.) It would appear the product was relabelled and attributed to a subsidiary, Fahr Chem IG. After all, you could hardly have twenty tonne containers going from Bayer or BASF to Iraq with manifests stating the cargo as 'Nerve Agent', could you? The company had to create a non suspicious name for this product and, knowing it would either be used against American troops or discovered by them, chose to brandl the product with the trade name 'Aul' Well, you've got to call it something and the pesticide industry is full of meaningless trade names. Of course, dear readers by now the righties among you will have figured out that the nerve gas was labelled "Fahr Chem Aul."
Adolf is lead to believe the conglomerate has a number of other divisions:
Pharmaceutical - throat lozenges branded Fahr Cough
Porcelain manufacture - the highly prised Fahr Cup and Saucer set
Telecommunications - Fahr Call
Sports Ground ticketing equipment - Far Queue
