I am in the middle of a piece of work that led me to the website of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the intergovernmental organization that administers the international treaty which bans the development, production, stockpiling, transfer and use of chemical weapons, and also stipulates their timely destruction. I notice that they've published the list of the seven non-signatory states.
One of the seven countries is Iraq.
That list is dated March 2007, four years after the US occupied the country allegedly to prevent the manufacture, stockpile and use of weapons of mass destruction by the former Iraqi regime.
In February 2006 the OPCW said that Iraq would ratify the treaty soon.
No Rush? [No Bush]
