At Iraqi Depot, Missiles Galore and No Guards By RAYMOND BONNER and IAN FISHER Published: October 17, 2003 MUSAYYIB, Iraq, Oct. 16 — It weighs more than a thousand pounds, so carting it away could present a few logistical problems for the average looter. But the fact remains that there is a very nice 15-foot-long missile, in mint condition, there for the taking, at one of Saddam Hussein's defense factories a few miles west of here. The missile, along with a dozen ready-to-fire 107-millimeter antitank rounds, just a few feet away, is part of a problem that the American military has only begun to grapple with: as much as one million tons of ammunition is scattered around Iraq, much of it unguarded — like the armaments here — simply because the United States does not have the personnel to keep watch.... But Rummy knew more about it than Shinseki, who submitted that more ground troops were needed...who wants to bet that some of this ammo is being used to kill our men and women? Wow.
