    Default Sarin Gas and its Effects

    I thought I would share this with those who don't have military training or just simply don't understand what Sarin gas does to the human body. In the Army, my unit once had to watch a video of a goat in a gas chamber be hit with Sarin gas. The effects are brutal and semi-quick. Gas masks at the time (and probably still) are ineffective against this gas. One quick spurt of the gas via aerosol began to take hold of the goat within seconds. It started convulsing, bleeding from all orifices, and eventually collapsed. But it did not die then. The symptoms continued for several minutes until the goat finally lay still on the floor of the chamber. It was a slow, gruesome, and painful death.

    Sarin gas is a nerve agent. It attacks the central nervous system and slowly shuts down bodily function. It is absorbed through inhalation and skin. One drop is enough to kill once again. If you were caught in an affected area but still only encountered minimal exposure somehow, you would still suffer life long mental disability from Sarin. There is no "escaping" the agent.

    If it is used in Syria or elsewhere in the way that the media is describing due to Assad's large stockpile, hundreds of thousands (AT LEASt) will meet a grizzly end.

    This exposition is nasty and disheartening I know. You should all be aware though.

    Can I ask if bombing the stocks would destroy it or would it still release the gas or some of it into the atmoshere?

    Exactly, that is why I said in another thread I do not want to see the pictures... at all! May God open this mans eyes. 8 year vet, seen the effects--do not need to see them again.

    Yes I knew what that Sarin gas was a nerve gas.

    Yes it is a brutal way to die.

    for the mercy of the Lord, amen.

    Sorry, Joe. I actually wrote a response to this right after you posted it but I guess I did not post my answer!

    The answer is that Sarin gas can retain its neurotoxicity up to 2 months. But contact with water or any hydroxide will cause it to quickly break down into harmless components. Therefore, if Assad were to use the gas, the major nations could quickly come in and neutralize the gas so it did not spread to neighboring areas or nations. Sadly, that will not prevent horrifying deaths for thousands of Syrians.

    I did't watch your video....and maybe because I didn't I shouldn't even comment. But, I am anyway. Just the title is offensive.......you want us to see an animal being tortured?! I am greatly offended. And, by the way, we are smart folks here and could have easily understood words used to describe the effects.

    I'm miffed and no one try to justify this to me!!

    Actually, sis, there was NO video posted. Eyes to Heaven was merely referring to one that they were forced to watch years ago in the military. So Eyes did exactly what you said: described it in words.

    Did I miss something. I thought the OP said he was forced to watch a video and there is no link on the post so I assume there is NO Video?

    I took the OP saying it was a terrible thing. I agree I don't like to know the details, knowing it was a nerve gas was enough. I have heard the details before today from secular sources. I known young people(non-Christian teenagers and twenty something) who have laughed at the effects because they are desensitised to these things today.

    I had to go into detail about what is Sarin gas with my neighbour yesterday who is in her 30s & who thought it wasn't that bad but after I described the type of death that would be suffered she agreed with me no humanbeing should be subjected to that kind of biological weapon.

    Unfortunately there are plenty of people out there that see and hear the words Sarin Gas and think "big deal" because they really don't understand what it actually is. Growing up with WW1 and WW2 and Veitnam veterans in my family I was made aware of it over the years. Ver, very sad that some Scientist invented this type of weapon (so much for the nobility of science).

    Closer reading would have revealed that I didn't post a video.

    How is the title offensive?

    Don't worry about it, it was apparently a misunderstanding.

    After seeing the horrors that these weapons are capable of during WW1 the world leaders banned biological and chemical weapons. So why were these rogue nations not dealt with before this became a problem? A million dollar question perhaps.

    I do appreciate your sharing Eyes to Heaven. You have provided me with a more vivid picture of how serious Sarin gas is and provided even more incentive to pray.
