  •  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.
      I wish I was a moron, MY GOD, Perhaps I am!
