  •  Sarin, Vx, other war gasses. (0+ / 0-)

    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.

    •  yeah I know (0+ / 0-)

      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.
