ANOTHER CACHE? Financial Times reports Coalition forces may have found a large stache of chemical weapons. It also reports on the Iraqi propaganda effort:

Iraq’s leadership remained defiant in the face of the US-led advance, issuing a chilling statement said to have been written by Mr Hussein in which Iraqis were assured the capital would be defended.

“With God’s help, their [US and British forces’] stomachs may grill in hell forever and our martyrs will attain paradise,” the statement, read on Iraqi television by Iraq’s information minister, said.

Who makes this stuff up?!
