    homes (never mind having actual lives) ALL THE TIME (because you never know when a noise-less, odor-less attack will occur), never goes outside, has gas masks, magically doesn't live in the target area, they'll be okay?

    Nice survival plan.  Tell me how that works for you.

    Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

      what are you talking about?

      If you are being shelled by napalm, you think its more civilized?  Thats what you are arguing.  If only they were shelling our neighborhood with a gasoline jelly that burns you alive, yeah, well then we could go about enjoying our afternoons/

      Yeah, nice plan, Tell me how i works out for you.

        In case you haven't been paying attention, this diary is about Syria and Sarin.

        Nice attempt to change the subject and dig yourself out of a hole.

        Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

          you obviously dont even understand how these ordnances are delivered.

          As for changing the subject? I didn't, the subject at hand is you are claiming one method of killing is so much worse than others, that we should risk going to war over it.

          Here lets have a real expert weigh in on the subject... and of course show just how wrong your are on it

          •  Let me count the ways: (0+ / 0-)

            1) shell - howitzer or mortar.  If it doesn't explode when it lands, it's just sort of a big crunch.
            2) bomb - dropped from a plane presumably.  you hear a plane overhead and eventually a crunch (or not depending upon parachutes)
            3) missile - another big crunch when the spent pieces hit the ground, but not an explosion unless patriot missiles were fired at it (and THEY explode -- almost all of them missed during Gulf War I, btw)
            4) timer - just like a car bomb but without the bang.

            None of those delivery methods for Sarin seem all that loud unless your house is where the ordinance came down.  It's not like a fuel-air explosion.

            (Oh, and I'm an engineer -- don't give me crap about not knowing how this stuff works.)

            Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

    •  so.. (0+ / 0-)

      I guess you are ok then with napalm? Or should we intervene if that is used too?   Last I checked it is an equally gruesome way to go.
