2003 UN Report: Iraq Sulfur Mustard Gas Chemical Weapons Have High Quality After 12 years of Storage
March 2003 UN Iraq WMD Report ^ | June 22 2006 | jveritas

Posted on 06/22/2006 11:38:34 AM PDT by jveritas

Since the story broke yesterday about finding 500 Shells of Chemical Weapons in Iraq, shells that contain Sulfur Mustard Gas or Sarin Gas, the Left and their media were quick to dismiss this extremely important find by using the lame excuse that these Chemical weapons Shells were produced before 1991 and hence its not effective anymore because it has much lower quality”. However in March 2003 UN report about Iraq Weapons of Mass Destruction there is the following on page 77 (Page 79 of the pdf file), paragraph 1 of the report http://www.un.org/Depts/unmovic/documents/6mar.pdf :

“ The Sulfur Mustard contained in artillery shells that had been stored for over 12 years, had been found by UNMOVIC to be still of high purity. It is possible that viable filled artillery shells and aerial bombs still remain in Iraq.

The above form the United Nations inspectors and the darling of the Left Hans Blix totally destroy the stupid lies that the Left and their media has been spewing since the breakings new of yesterday. First the UN clearly state in March 2003 that the Mustard gas shells they found are of HIGH QUALITY even it had been STORED FOR OVER 12 YEARS. Second the UN admit that there may still VIABLE i.e. EFFECTIVE Mustrad filled artillery shell hidden in Iraq, and yesterday we learned for a fact that there were indeed 500 Mustard gas artillery shells that were found in Iraq since the removal of Saddam. Also it is safe to conclude that the Mustard Gas shells found after the war are still in high quality and highly effective Chemical weapons.

Another very important fact to add is that Saddam had LIED to the UN inspectors and the world when he said that he had destroyed ALL his Chemical Weapons and other WMD. It does not matter whether these weapons were produced before or after 1991, his job was to destroy it ALL and not hide anything not a one ounce of these WMD, he DID NOT.

Thank you for proving what an important find these these WMD's are.

I will send this to my Senators so they understand that the shelf life of this stuff is much longer than what the media spin is telling us.

These WMD shells were manufactured at the same time as the shells currently being used as IED's.

Just as effecive and just as deadly.

An additional point:

Even the old-style mustard gas retains its effectiveness for long periods of time. It may be slightly less reactive, but not enough so to make any difference.

There is an entire unit of the French Army devoted to disposing of World War One HE and mustard gas shells that surface on the old battlefields. The freeze-thaw cycle pushes them to the surface, and farmers die when their tractors run over them. The HE and mustard are still sufficiently virulent to kill or maim, and that stuff is going on for a hundred years old, not just fifteen.

Interesting how the left was crying over the dangers of WMD's to the environment on European soil when Reagan wanted to deploy the Minutement there during the eighties.

Media: "Yeah, well, OK. Twelve years. But this stuff is maybe 15 years old so it is probably no good."

I say, let's try it out on any of them who want to volunteer.

As Senator Santorum said yesterday paraphrasing “I do not think the unnamed DOD official voted for President Bush” and that he wants to see a real and official response from the DOD and not from some unnamed official.

Mustard is classified as a "persistent" agent. How persistent? Not a year goes by when a Frenchman or two (and some of his farm animals) doesn't die from plowing up a mustard-gas shell from WORLD WAR ONE.

what the media also fails to take into consideration is that we've been in Iraq for over three years now, time that Saddam has not had access to his weapons and time for them to get less potent.

so even if it's true that the weapons from pre 1991 are not as much of a threat as they used to be, part of that reason is because we've occupied the country for the past 20% of that time period.

You wouldn't happen to have a link to this? We need ammunition to use against the left's rebukes.

Efforts to Lengthen Shelf Life

# According to the CIA, nations such as Iraq have tried to overcome the problem of sarin's short shelf life in two ways: The shelf life of unitary (i.e., pure) sarin may be lengthened by increasing the purity of the precursor and intermediate chemicals and refining the production process.

# Developing binary chemical weapons, where the two precursor chemicals are stored separately in the same Shell (projectile)|shell, and mixed to form the agent immediately before or when the shell is in flight. This approach has the dual benefit of making the issue of shelf life irrelevant and greatly increasing the safety of sarin munitions

these libs that complain about the shells being 12yrs old are the same ones that will hold up a new public works project and do an environmental impact report because someone once dumped 5 gallons of lead paint in the soil.

amazing how they can discount NERVE AGENTS!

The Sulfur Mustard contained in artillery shells that had been stored for over 12 years, had been found by UNMOVIC to be still of high purity. It is possible that viable filled artillery shells and aerial bombs still remain in Iraq

Mustard gas from WW1 is still dangerous.

Did she really say this?! This woman is so pathetic and she is wrong all the times as most liberals. Not a single time she made a right analysis or prediction because she always speaks of what she sees in her delusional world and not the reality.

How about Brit Hume, Fred Barnes, Mort Kondrake, what did they say about this? Thanks.
