Chemical weapons

Imagine for a minute if Russia, China, Iran and Syria conducted a bombing raid on the United British States of America, Israhell and the French poodle. After all, these lily white imperialist countries have the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons and have used them in the past. Heck, they are using them today against their own citizens. There are countless of instances where the white supremacist powers have used chemical weapons of mass destruction, from gassing the indigenous people in Cuba, or the Freedom fighters in the Haitian War against slavery in 1803 to the black protesters in the streets of the US in 2018.
While the First Amendment of the United States Constitution and our state constitution guarantee freedom of speech and the right to lawful assembly, blacks are not allowed to any kind of redress of grievances unless they want to be assaulted with chemical weapons, like Chloroacetophenone (discovered in 1869 by a German chemist), Orthochlorbenzalmalononitrile, Pepper Mace, phenacyl chloride or other assorted lachrymatory agent (a chemical compound that irritates the eyes to cause tears, pain, and temporary blindness) used in policing, riot control, crowd control.
Now there is a rush to deploy remote-controlled dispersal of protest-control chemicals by drones.
The following information is available to anyone who cares.
[The US Army tested chemicals on residents of poor, Black St. Louis neighborhoods in the 1950s. The savage violence of the police against Occupy protesters in 2011 was well documented, and included the use of tear gas and other chemical irritants. Tear gas is prohibited for use against enemy soldiers in battle by the Chemical Weapons Convention. Can’t police give civilian protesters in Oakland, California the same courtesy and protection that international law requires for enemy soldiers on a battlefield? The FBI attacked men, women, and children with tear gas in Waco in 1993.
Chemical weapons are widely used by the United Kingdom. Britain used a range of poison gases, originally chlorine and later phosgene, diphosgene and mustard gas. They also used relatively small amounts of the irritant gases chloromethyl chloroformate, chloropicrin, bromacetone and ethyl iodoacetate. Gases were frequently mixed, for example white star was the name given to a mixture of equal volumes of chlorine and phosgene, the chlorine helping to spread the denser but more toxic phosgene. The British manufactured mustard, chlorine, lewisite, phosgene and Paris Green and stored it at airfields and depots for use on the beaches during World War II. From 1939 to 1989 experiments on chemical weapons including nerve agents and countermeasures were carried out at the Porton Down research establishment. Although volunteers were used, many ex-servicemen complained about suffering long term illnesses after taking part in the tests. It was alleged that before volunteering they were not provided with adequate information about the experiments and the risk, in breach of the Nuremberg Code of 1947.
In the March 2005 edition of Field Artillery, officers from the 2nd Infantry’s fire support element boast about their role in the attack on Falluja: “White Phosphorous. WP proved to be an effective and versatile munition. We used it for screening missions at two breeches and, later in the fight, as a potent psychological weapon against the insurgents in trench lines and spider holes when we could not get effects on them with HE [high explosive]. We fired ‘shake and bake’ missions at the insurgents, using WP to flush them out and HE to take them out.”
“The burns, associated with chemical weapons, usually are multiple, deep, and variable in size. The solid in the eye produces severe injury. The particles continue to burn unless deprived of atmospheric oxygen… If service members are hit by pieces of white phosphorus, it could burn right down to the bone.” As it oxidises, it produces smoke composed of phosphorus pentoxide. According to the standard US industrial safety sheet, the smoke “releases heat on contact with moisture and will burn mucous surfaces… Contact can cause severe eye burns and permanent damage.”
The commander of Marine Air Group 11 admitted that “We napalmed both those approaches”. Embedded journalists reported that napalm was dropped at Safwan Hill on the border with Kuwait. In August 2003 the Pentagon confirmed that the marines had dropped “mark 77 firebombs”. Though the substance these contained was not napalm, its function, the Pentagon’s information sheet said, was “remarkably similar”. While napalm is made from petrol and polystyrene, the gel in the mark 77 is made from kerosene and polystyrene. I doubt it makes much difference to the people it lands on.
The US military dumped 20 million gallons of chemicals on Vietnam from 1962-1971. Israel attacked Palestinian civilians with White Phosphorus in 2008- 2009. Washington attacked Iraqi civilians with White Phosphorus in 2004. The CIA helped Saddam Hussein massacre Iranians and Kurds with chemical weapons in 1988. The U.S. military littered Iraq with toxic depleted Uranium in 2003. In Iraq, the U.S. military has littered the environment with thousands of tons of munitions made from depleted uranium, a toxic and radioactive nuclear waste product. As a result, more than half of babies born in Fallujah from 2007- 2010 were born with birth defects. Some of these defects have never been seen before outside of textbooks with photos of babies born near nuclear tests in the Pacific. Cancer and infant mortality have also seen a dramatic rise in Iraq. According to Christopher Busby, the Scientific Secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk, “These are weapons which have absolutely destroyed the genetic integrity of the population of Iraq.” After authoring two of four reports published in 2012 on the health crisis in Iraq, Busby described Fallujah as having, “the highest rate of genetic damage in any population ever studied.”]
What gives certain people the right to decide they can have what others may not.
