Did Nazi Germany use chemical wepons against our troops even though they had Sarin Gas and we didn't? Nope. If al-Qaeda gets its hands on Sarin would they bat an eye at using it on our troops? Nope.

The reason the Germans never used gas against our troops was that German photo-recon identified gas cylinders at our arty batteries indicating that we were ready to respond in kind at the first use of chemical warfare.

The possibility that these cylinders were actually nitrogen for the recoil mechanisms (which was the case) apparently escaped them.

Again, Nazi Germany had chemical weapons including Sarin Gas and didn't use it on our soldiers for the same principal that they didn't systematically torture or butcher our GIs who were captured they didn't want it done to them so they didn't do it to us.

The Germans didn't use chemical weapons because they didn't want it used to them period.

They didn't drop Serin Gas on the UK, because they didn't want the UK to respond in kind. It is the same reason why there wasn't the systematic torture and execution of our POWs.

It just happens CNN's John Roberts is embedded with that unit. Prayers for the soldier but I smell a CNN crapola stunt here and wondering did Roberts give the enemy information that lead to his missing?

Is there any indication that he didn't turn up missing on a large base, as opposed to outside the wire?

Maybe not anymore...

I am sensing a change...that we are NOT going to be so "soft" anymore.

I will pray for that...while I pray for this soldier.

And, NO you don't have to support IT..let's work to get it changed.

No, that would be a MUCH worse scenario, like that traitorous ex-marine that was 'found' in Lebanon.

Just heard on CNN that Iraqi and US troops raided a private Iraqi TV station to search for the soldier and found a large cache of weapons inside but no word on the soldier.

True. It doesn't change the fact that misinterpreted photos made them think that we were better prepared than we were to respond immediately.

Not that we didn't have the means to respond in theater. We did not have nerve agents, but a freighter full of blister agents was hit by German aircraft in an Italian port, with tragic results.

Probably is but that's what CNN just reported from John Roberts who just happens to be embedded with the missing soldiers same unit.

They need to get the embedded media out of the units so our troops can do their jobs uninterrupted and without enemy propaganda on their heals.
