Suspected lethal nerve agent discovered at JFK Airport mail facility; two customs agents
New York Post ^ | 8/11/13 | Philip Messing

The highly lethal nerve agent VX -- used in weapons of mass destruction -- appears to have been discovered in a mail facility at JFK Airport where two US customs agents were sickened this morning, a law-enforcement source said. Both victims suffered respiratory distress and were taken for emergency treatment after being overcome while inside the US Postal Service facility on North Boundary Road at 9:40 a.m., the source said. Initial testing after the incident revealed the presence of "chemical-grade weapons and nerve gas," and subsequent testing produced a positive reading for VX, the source said.

I don’t believe a word of it. Somebody probably mailed a bottle of Windex and the idiots freaked out.

Chemical Detection paper is pretty ubiquitous. If it was used and tested positive for VX, it was probably VX. Since VX is a liquid, these postal workers probably inhaled a very small dose of fumes. If they had gotten some of the liquid on their skin, they’d be in considerable trouble.

Package from China, being opened by postal inspectors why?
And how long until DHS and the pres try to blame “right wingers” for it?

In one of the morning threads, some posted that on further examination the agents had not been exposed to nerve gas.

Apparently, we need to find a timeline for the incident.

If indeed it were VX, the postal employees would be dead by now. The antidote must be administered (if I remember my CBR training) within 5 minutes. There are a number of common household chemicals that will give a false indication of VX. We would use these to train new troops what to look for, since they wouldn't let us have real VX (party poopers!).

reading up on VX one thing struck me... it can be delivered via the water supply

think back ... there were a number of break-ins to water facilities in the news in the last few months

is this the threat 0bama and crew were made aware of?

where was the package heading? was it an abandoned location? odds are it was meant to be picked up as part of a bigger plan

Does Depo-Provera remain active in water?

I have no idea what that is and I won’t be googling around for anything similar to VX (i figure googling VX is ok as it’s in the news)

what is it?

Heck - incandescent light bulbs are now considered to be weapons-grade electricity suckers. I’m sure there was some weapons grade something or other there....

It was just announced a few minutes ago on WCBS news radio that it was some SPILLED COSMETICS which caused the “nerve gas” reaction in the equipment. No worries!

Now the question is whether that is true or whether it is the cover story for yet another attack in America under Obysmal. Was it just cosmetics or was it cosmetics laced with VX? I think VX is one of the agents given to Saddam in the 80s, so it could definitely be out there on the global market.

Thanks for link

Phosphoric acid is a great rust killer. We use it prior to repainting a lot of farm machinery. Good stuff.

Had never thought of that. Have used it to make quick recontact on corroded battery cables. Works in a pinch, but must be cleaned later to remove the sugar.
