As of yet, chemical alarms are going off and many tests are being taken. I do not have much more detail. I am trying to find the symptoms involved and just what alarms are being set off.

Is this a cache we were aware of, or was it "discovered" when it went up?

I expect as soon as the MSM figures out a way to blame Bush, and not admit that there were chemical weapons there in the first place, we'll hear about in on CNN, et al.

No, you don't understand the sheer size of most of these caches they find.
It is impossible to go through and test every single shell, mortar round, etc etc etc.

Even if people do get sick, it probably wouldn't be as bad as if the weapons were deployed successfully instead of being exploded in a demolition.

What I have feared is that the Iraqis removd or failed to mark their chemical weapons adequately.

Remember the Sarin and Mustard gas shells 2 years ago?

ANY idiot knows you have to make them spin to mix the chemicals, so, to use them as a roadside bomb almost makes them inert from that perspective.

So, I cna easily imagine that Saddam's people removed the markings from the shells or shell containers that identified these weapons and that people are suing them soon enoug not knowing what is in them.

OR, they did it deliberately.

50/50 chance either way.

Obviously, these hundreds of people are mistaken.

There are no WMD's in Iraq. Just ask the MSM and the democrats

Please keep us advised. I wonder why the MSM hasn't picked it up at all considering the time delay.

That reads as if they were setup. Someone sneaked a WMD agent shell into the pile that was going to be blown. How else could insurgents be ready to fire mortars and blame it on the Americans. This is not good.

Welcome.
I'm also recalling the Mig-25 Foxbat recon version with modern French electronics buried in the sand.
There are also multi-acre size depots that we know of, but cannot get to due to the sheer number of them all.

As a side note, the mushroom cloud doesn't really mean anything as any explosions can cause a mushroom shaped cloud given the right atmospheric conditions.

Which the Dems were screaming about two or more years ago about 'securing the depots', and blaming the U.S. military for the terrorists getting explosives from same depots.

What are the symptoms of the suffering? Symptoms would provide a predominant clue to what chemical agent.

BTW, the chemicals are categorized as either blood, nerve, and blister agents.

Enclosed is the e-mail I got with all units blocked out:

Anthrax would take a day or two to appear, something immediate would be a blood or nerve agent or chemical

Can you describe symptoms?

She said that some of the field tests came back positive, but that XXXxx couldn't reveal what agents were present in the air. He said that quite a few of the 5/14 soldiers were very sick, and were medevaced and being treated. With that info, I would assume that it would be anthrax or sarin, and not mustard or another blistering agent. The large number of Iraqi citizens that were very sick is what really makes you think that it was a large quantity of some type of WMD, tho'. Feel free to post this tho', and use the unit as well. Just blot out XXX XXXX XXXX's name for now.

>>>I got a call from a dear friend's wife yesterday morning. My friend, Xxx Xxx Xxxxx, has been in Iraq just south of Baghdad since Aug. He is serving with 5/14 of the US Army's 10th Mountain DIV. They found a huge cache of mortars and arty shells, and when they blew them up, a HUGE MUSHROOM cloud went up, and a sticky substance dissipated all over the area, to include a suburb of Baghdad. Many of XXxxx soldiers got sick, as well as hundreds of Iraqi civilians as well. The insurgents started firing off mortars onto their basecamp, and got the citizens riled up as well, blaming the Americans for "gassing" them. Many tests are being conducted by our NBC folks to determine the gas that was released by the explosions of this cache. XXxxxxx said that the suspected WMD's were buried in a bunker, just beneath the uncovered weapons cache. The detonation of the weapons cache must've accidentally exploded the suspected WMD's as well, thus unleashing the concoction into the air. I'll keep ya' posted on anything his wife tells me. Keep looking for any info on this possible WMD find as well. This could be the beginning of a big find and overwhelming proof of Saddam's WMD arsenal, and it could blow up in the face of the Dems and liberals who have sought to discredit GWB and our mission as well!
