Yes and Phosgene was one of the first Chemical weapons ever used. As I said in other posts the list of chemicals that avacadod showed is very a dangerous one to be "dual use" since these chemicals can be turned into deadly Chemical Weapons. We are talking about Saddam regime here!

Look, I know how bad both phosgene and Saddam are. I have no dispute with that. Here is the reality: you can make phosgene by overheating PVC plastics. It's easy. PVC is everywhere.

The only way to preclude phosgene being used as a chemical weapon is to monitor manufacturing and storage of the bulk materials and delivery systems. Preventing imports accomplishes very little.
