ISIL Weapons Of Mass Destruction - Chemical - Biological - 11/23/2014
Stories have emerged from Kobani, Syria that ISIL may have utilized old stockpiles of chemical
weapons discovered in Syria and even in Iraq. Some patients have presented for medical care with what appear to be lesions and blisters caused by skin contact with crude mustard gas. The evidence is inconclusive but highly suspicious.
It is ISIL style to take and hold territory whereas many chemical
weapons have a strong area-denial component to their use. It is no less true that the ruthless nature of ISIL must be taken into account and no reasonable analysis can exclude from the threat scenario, introduction of substantial chem/bio attacks against large targets in Iraq and elsewhere. ISIL has significant ambitions in this regard and may take over Al Quaeda's quest and resouces for delivery systems. It can sefely be assumed that ISIL now has substantial quantitities of at least Mustard Gas and Sarin.
Crude mustard gas is a candidate for artillary shells and has an odor resembling
mustard plants, garlic or horseradish. Contact in any measure is dangerous and
highly lethal causing slow and painful death. There is an immediately debilitating effect on defending and attacking troops who come into contact with this chemical warfar agent. Breathing the agent causes death or serious surgical implications.
