SNIPPET: "Iraqi soldiers foiled a potentially deadly suicide attack today at the border crossing at Al Qaim in western Anbar province. From Aswat al-Iraq (Voices of Iraq):
A force from the 28th infantry division managed to defuse a car bomb and to kill its driver in al-Qaim, Anbar province, said the statement received by Aswat al-Iraq news agency.
The suicide driver carries the Kuwaiti nationality, and had on his possession a fake ID issued from Baiji, the statement added.
The car was loaded with three tons of Chlorine and C4 as well as other chemical materials, it added.
Having closely followed Iraq over the years, I am immediately reminded of two incidents from the recent past: al Qaeda's attempt to destroy the Awakening in Anbar with a series of potentially deadly chlorine suicide attacks, and a suicide attack in Mosul by a former Guantanamo Bay detainee who had been turned over to Kuwait in late 2005 and released in mid-2006."

On the other hand, he went to Gulbuth sparkling clean.
Maybe he was on his way to clean a really big pool
But he didn’t make a clean get away.
and the chlorine cleaned him from the inside out.
Gulbuth scores a new jimmy.
Nah, he went to Hell.
Is Gulbuth Hell?
LOL...nah, the other chemicals and the C$ kind of squashes that theory.
He comes from the article The Onion did right after 9/11, “Terrorists Surprised To Find Selves In Hell”, where the boys find themselves being inventively tortured by various demons, among which is Gulbuth the Rampant. Gulbuth is a very friendly demon. You might even say affectionate. What makes this fun for him and torture for those he’s affectionate with is...well, some creatures have genital warts. Gulbuth has genital thorns.
Wasn’t chlorine gas used in WWI? I know it’s nasty stuff: it will eat up your lungs. Fortunately, I don’t believe that simply blowing up the gas canisters would have been a very effective means of delivery. Still would have been nasty, especially in a crowded and/or confined area.
It is nasty stuff. I had an accident on my job back in ‘79 where a chlorine gas line broke loose and sprayed me in the face (Thank God for safety glasses). I still feel some of the effects of the half breath of the stuff I got.
Back when I managed a retail store, we almost lost one employee who tried to clean some equipment with a mix of bleach and ammonia. The resulting hazmat response was pretty memorable.

Thank you for the bump rdl6989.
Gas chlorine hits your lungs and reacts with moisture and you get HCL (hydrochloric acid). You could probably jump-start a toyota with your bare hands.
Calling BS on the details in the article!
No way a CAR would be able to carry 6,000 pounds of chlorine, C4 and other items.
From the original source - quote - snippet:
“”The car was loaded with three tons of Chlorine and C4 as well as other chemical materials, it added.”
Ignoring the math for the moment, the ingredients are very specific and worth noting here.
Thanks for your feedback octex.
