Each month brings a new cuisine of media frenzy, some topic of discussion by which the American public can be lulled into a comatose state after being bludgeoned with thirty thousand variations of the same news story.
And the winner this month is - chemical warfare!
Before I rant about the evils of chemical weapons, I should admit that I am not blessed with the insightful interpretation of the ethics of killing people. Syria is “morally wrong” for using chemical weapons. They should be more civilized, drops bombs on people, blow their legs off, and let them bleed to death.
I do love military intelligence.
Anyway, back to chemical warfare. It’s nasty stuff, a vile way to die. Only a sociopathic sadist would take delight in orchestrating the deaths of untold numbers by the use of poisonous chemicals.
Sadly, these weapons do exist and thousands of people are being subjected to chemical vapors designed to slowly kill them.
It wouldn’t be such a bad thing if the chemicals killed people faster. Breathing in the vapors and keeling over dead in seconds isn’t much worse than having 9.5 grams of lead propelled through your brain at 833 m/s.
