Ya may be! But who supplied those WMD to Saddam?

- Numerous sources including us (UK & USA) - it's called free trade.

Who made Binladin a hero and supplied him weapons and money?

- As a billionaire he had quite a lot of money already. As for weapons and logistical support the bulk of this was supplied by Pakistan. The CIA also supported the Mujahadeen and it is unlikely that the Russians could have been removed with such assistance. It is an object lesson in how one should never expect gratitude from such savages and how any help that you receive is generally repaid with treachery.
