re: Syria and Chemical Weapons... (Posted on 12/8/12 at 10:10 am to SundayFunday)
quote: I was watching an interview with an expert on chemical weapons on CNN the other night. They were saying that a single 110mm shell of Sarin gas landing in a populated city could kill 20-50 thousand people in a few hours. That is truly terrifying. What is possibly more terrifying is that even if we bomb the missile sites, the gas would still be released and kill even more people. The only way we'd be able to stop these chemical weapons from being used is a precise special forces insertion.... And there are dozens of missile sites if I heard correctly...
I believe I saw or heard in the past that incendiary bombs would be used to destroy chemical weapon stockpiles.
