The third chlorine bomb to explode this year suggests that insurgents in Iraq have developed a deadly new tactic. Two deadly vehicle bombings this week and one last month used chlorine mixed with explosives devices. The chemical attacks left at least 12 dead and more than 200 hospitalized in the past week.

My God… how can we protect our troops and innocent civilians against Chemical Weapons?

One of the most commonly manufactured chemicals in the United States, chlorine was employed by the military during World War I as a choking agent, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Exposure to chlorine gas can cause difficulty in breathing, coughing, burning in the nose, throat and eyes, nausea and vomiting, the CDC said.
