IRAQ'S PURCHASES IN THE A-BOMB SUPERMARKET The Number of Deals The Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control has compiled a list of all the pub licly known deals in which Iraq bought technology and equipment for its nuclear and missile programs before the Persian Gulf war in 1991. Some purchases were made from brokers rather than directly from the manufacturer. A deal can mean construction of an entire factory, or supplying the machine tools or training to operate it. The vast majority of these deals were approved by or made through the governments.

SHARE OF RESPONSIBILITY
Breakdown of Iraq's purchases, weighted for importance to its nuclear and missile
programs, as estimated by the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control. One ex-
ample: although France had only six transactions with the Iraqis, one was to build
the Osirak nuclear reactor, which Israel destroyed by bombing in 1981
