The Washington Times reported Thursday that the U.S. Government, in "gassing" the Branch Davidian compound at Waco, Texas, used a nerve agent (CS "Tear Gas") on children that is banned by international law for use in warfare. The CS tear agent, or O-chlorobenzalmalononitrite, is a white crystaline powder that causes involuntary closure of eyes, burning of the skin, respiratory problems and vomiting, which anyone who knows how this chemical works would be aware that use in an enclosed area would make leaving the area difficult due to the trauma it would cause. It would have been illegal for the U.S. Government to use this product on Iraqui troops, but apparently it's okay to spray it on 6-year-old children of this country who could not even have gas masks because they are not made in the sizes that fit children, and because this type of tear gas is normally used for crowd control and is designed to be hard to resist with a gas mask. ============================================== Another file downloaded from The Soapbox BBS "Your Infotainment Specialist" An all text BBS specializing in e-zines and other unique text files.
