    Okay, now I don't want to hear anymore liberals asking, "where are the WMD's?". But they'll find something else to bitch about anyways.

    :cool:

    IF they bother to find them in Syria, the left would just say they were planted by the US. No winning with this. It's the Big Lie!

    :rolleyes:

    MUSTARD GAS

    http://www.encyclopedia.com/html/m1/mustardg.asp

    chemical compound used as a poison gas in World War I. The burning sensation it causes on contact with the skin is similar to that caused by oil from black mustard seeds. The compound is not a gas but a colorless, oily liquid with a somewhat sweet, agreeable odor; it boils at 217‹C. A powerful vesicant, mustard gas causes severe blistering even in small quantities. Highly irritating to the eyes, it quickly causes conjunctivitis and blindness. If inhaled, it attacks the respiratory tract and lungs, causing pulmonary edema. Some effects of exposure to mustard gas are delayed up to 12 hr; death may result several days after exposure. Mustard gas was introduced by the Germans in warfare against the British at Ypres, Belgium, in July, 1917, and took a heavy toll of casualties. It is dispersed as an aerosol by a bursting shell. Chemically, mustard gas is a thioether, 2,2Œ-dichlorodiethyl sulfide, (ClCH 2 CH 2 ) 2 S. It can be prepared by reacting ethylene with sulfur monochloride, S 2 Cl 2 , or by other methods. Its vesicant property is readily destroyed either by oxidation or by chlorination (e.g., with bleaching powder).

    SARIN

    http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Lab/7050/

    Sarin, a colorless and odorless gas, has a lethal dose of 0.5 milligram for an adult. It is 26 times more deadly than cyanide gas and is 20 times more lethal than potassium cyanide. Just 0.01 milligram per kilogram of body weight a pinprick sized droplet will kill a human. The vapor is slightly heavier than air, so it hovers close to the ground. Under wet and humid weather conditions sarin degrades swiftly, but as the temperature rises up to a certain point, sarinfs lethal duration increases, despite the humidity.

    Mankind has always searched for more and more powerful weapons, whether it be a bigger rock to throw a better quality bow and arrow or musket or a more powerful bomb. Obviously this century it has been explosives of one kind or another. More specifically the tendancy has been for more powerful missiles or aerial bombs this race reached its height when the nuclear bomb was invented the power of these bombs were so supremly powerful that the target would be of no use to anyone after the explosion due to the damage and contamination. So as a result the search for weapons that would kill the enemy but leave the surrounding area undamaged and any contamination short lived. Chemical and Biological weapons were the answer to these problems. Chemical weapons have been around in less sophisticated forms for decades, they were used quite extensively in the first world war but took the form of simple gasses such as chlorine and mustard gas. In this day and age the current crop of chemical weapons are far more dangerous and well researched.

    Among the most dangerous chemical weapons are the so called nerve gasses or nerve agents, nerve agents have entirely dominated chemical warfare since the Second World War. Nerve agents acquired their name because they affect the transmission of nerve impulses in the nervous system. All nerve agents belong chemically to the group of organo-phosphorus compounds. They are stable and easily dispersed, highly toxic and have rapid effects both when absorbed through the skin and via respiration. Nerve agents can be manufactured by means of fairly simple chemical techniques. The raw materials are inexpensive and generally readily available. This makes them even more dangerous as they can be made by any irresponsible mind with a decent laboratory.

    No matter how much WMD is found scattered around the countryside, it will never be enough for the LLL.

    Until they see Dan Rather walk into a huge building that looks like Sam's Club that has shelves lined with ricin, anthrax, vx, etc. they will keep crying Where's the WMD ? Where's the WMD?

    i'm sure syria has them, and with north korea and pakistan helping syria's missile program, who knows which country they'll be fired into and explode in one day?

    this hardly counts as a destructive batch of weapons. these are old and rusty vats with traces of toxins inside. all stuff made in the 80s, with US support.

    Menewa your back to being more than annoying, please. The fact that you have no links is annoying, but more than annoying is that the US support of Iraq has been dealt with and proven to be insignificant at best. Now I'm not going back and find the links, there are others that are actually thinking today. Stop being more than annoying. :flameth: :blowup: We've been down this road before.

    Links are not needed for above claims. It is common knowledge.

    Old empty shells do not count as WMD. You guys and gals say over and over again "WMDs found." When it just ain't so.

    Also, US support of Iraq in 1980s is not insignificant and it has never been proven otherwise.
