Various reports suggest that the missing weapons of mass destruction are likely to be 'found' in the near future as shipments arrive been unloaded in Iraq by US forces.

On March 13th, the Tehran Times reported that in the wake of the bombings in Karbala US forces were unloading Weapons of Mass Destruction at ports in southern Iraq. The report goes on to say that these weapons were produced in the 1980/90s and are similar to those which international weapons inspectors announced had been destroyed.

Tehran Times report:

New reports from a source close to the authorities in Basra say that they are being transported by the Maeresk shipping company in the guise of Red Cross or USAID consignments and are being moved into position whilst the world is distracted by the uprising in Fallujah. Some early reports from inside Iraq about the four US mercenaries killed and burned on Fallujah bridge strongly indicated that they had been deliberately placed in harms way which might support this claim.
