You also have to remember that there were other restrictions on his weapons, like his missles could not travel over 150 kms. During the war, some of his missles were able to go further than that.

Would you be refering to missiles such as these:

Al Samoud 2

The progress in the destruction of al-Samoud II missiles was noted by Hans Blix in his 7 March 2003 statement to the Security Council:

"The destruction undertaken constitutes a substantial measure of disarmament - indeed, the first since the middle of the 1990s. [...] Until today, 34 Al Samoud 2 missiles, including 4 training missiles, 2 combat warheads, 1 launcher and 5 engines have been destroyed under UNMOVIC supervision. Work is continuing to identify and inventory the parts and equipment associated with the Al Samoud 2 programme. Two 'reconstituted' casting chambers used in the production of solid propellant missiles have been destroyed and the remnants melted or encased in concrete.


Ababil-100 (now known as al-Fatah)

This rocket has also come under UNMOVIC scrutiny as a result of Iraq's admission that it exceeds the 150km range. Iraq declared on 7 December that in 33 tests of its unguided version, 8 of them had flown between 150km and 161km. On 6 March 2003, UNMOVIC reported that the final assessment of its status had not yet been made, as more evidence needed to be collected
