Mustard Gas Fatalities North of Libya

American mustard gas killed or injured at least 698 military and an unknown number of civilians. Full details below

America is now raising the spectre of Libyan mustard gas in a demonification exercise and/or an excuse to attack Libya.

Bari lies along the Adriatic Sea at the top of the heel of the boot of Italy (See Figure 1). During World War II, the port of Bari was under the jurisdiction of the British and was the main supply base for General Montgomery’s Eighth Army as well as the headquarters for the American Fifteenth Air Force which was activated in November 1943. Foggia, about 35 miles further north along the coast was the main operating base of the Fifteenth Air Force.

    • Thanks for turning up. I was getting bored waiting.

      This story was posted to get people thinking about hypocrisy. The US has never had any problems using gas weapons. It still has massive reserves of nerve gas that are 10,000 times, nay millions of times more deadly than mustard gas.

      The US is beating up the admitted presence of a very small quantity of mustard gas in Libya. This gas is not a WMD. It's an interdiction weapon with very low fatality.

      The major effect is you have to wear a gas m More..

    • I think you mean that the US has never had any problem manufacturing and storing gas weapons....they have always had a problem using them.

      While fatality rates may be low, mustard gas is a nasty, debilitating, sever tissue damaging weapon with horrible effects lasting a long time....but what is your point? And just how many Lybians have gas masks?

      And NO...the major effect is that in 24 hours after exposure you develop debilitating, 1-3rd degree burns forming fluid filled blisters. Perman More..

    • I was wrong in my comment. I said it was 10% fatal. In fact it is 1% fatal.

      It's not a gas. It is an aerosol (think flyspray). It works by hanging around an area and being picked up by people passing through and brushing against contaminated foliage.

      I've seen the training videos of volunteers being exposed to mustard gas in jungle conditions. It's not pretty, but again not fatal.

      The basic point is that this is not a WMD. It's a beatup.

  • The US would of used poison gas FIRST against the germans. There was a similar attack in London when a US ship was sunk with mustard gas that sickened thousands of Londeners. Dont believe me. The atomic bombs used on Japan were intended for Germany, but were not finished in time.
