WMD is such a dumb term.  The proper acronym is NBC - Nuclear, Biological and Chemical agents, and yes Saddam did have a fair stock of the latter.  Whether they could cause 'mass' destruction is doubtful as they were in the form of conventional artillery shells. 

None of these tinpot dictatorships have the DELIVERY VEHICLE to turn their NBC agents into weapons of mass destruction- a key factor that always gets ignored in these debates.

Tony Blair said "45 minutes..." He didn't specify battlefield use though, all the national papers promptly leapt on this, claiming we were 45 minutes from the apocalypse.

Spin Spin Spin..........conspiracy? surely not.

If so, that makes it a conspiracy.  :-)) :-))

I don't know why but to me there's always seemed something wrong with pictures like this of the Moon Landing......  :D

glad you chose that photo, my wife spotted the problem straight away, every sane person knows that wallace and gromit went to the moon not shaun, but really, notice the black reference crosses, the camera used shot through a grid of those crosses, in the blackness they would show up in the negative yet in the negative of that photo and hundreds of others the background seems to have been airbrushed out, interesting huh

If the camera shot through a grid of those crosses, and was focussed on the astronaut, wouldn't those crosses then be way out of focus? So I surmise that the crosses were added at the printing stage, when they and the original image would both be sharp.

ASIO.......

My God, I've been using that on my computer's audio apps for donkey's years, you've got me worried now!

Actually, as a qualified photogrammetrist who used to use reseau plates all the time, which is where these small crosses are engraved on glass, I would point out that the reseau plate is in fact at the focal plane of the camera, it's not added later or in front of the lens at all....  The grid is there to enable photogrammetrists to very accurately measure points on the resultant image to adjust any error from camera aberrations or film distortion.

Often various anomalies happen to the cross hairs or fiducials, as they are known, due to light scattering or light saturation. I've seen thousands of air survey photos and there were plenty where problems with one or more cross hairs has arisen. If they were all perfect on the moon landing shots, then I'd suspect something but they are just like many thousands of others I saw in my career.

It's easy to try to create a conspiracy theory if you don't know any of the facts of the matter,  .........  ;)

Try the Orion conspiracy - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOoR5D73Huo - that's intriguing , as for Mythbusters - well an entertainment show enough said, the moon / mars landings ?, if you were there at the time they landed then you could say yes / no , anything else is surely hearsay .Perhaps it was all a public "front" to weaponize space by the yanks / Russians / Chinese - (add country of interest here) .

This will be jumped on shortly by all the pro Apollo crew, probably without reading the post first  :}
