    Chemical attack on US

    With all that is going on in Syria I can't help but think at least some of its chemical weapons are going to get in the hands of terrorist and we may soon see an attack on the US that will make 9-11 seem like a minor incident. Scary to think about but I think it's coming.

    Why the need to import it from Syria?

    It's as easy as C4H8Cl2S...

    Future? Perhaps. Imminent? No.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Chemical weapons? Its much easier than that - it's enough to dump 2 pounds of mercury in Hoover Dam and Las Vegas is out of water. I'll stop with the "bad ideas" here.

    The U.S. should consider this before pissing off Islamic terrorist.

    Given enough time anything is possible, this is not anything different. Should we freak out and chicken little ourselves into even less freedom and liberty than we've done in general over terrorism? No. We're still talking low probability events and even if it were to occur, it wouldn't kill off America. No reason to loose freedom over it.

    If it was that easy it would have been done by now. This Syria thing really has my attention though, if terrorist get ahold of their chem arsenal or even a fraction of it we are in deep s***.

    and considering we're siding with the terrorists, what does this tell you?

    Question of the poll is not should we freak out, more like should we expect and be ready for it. Maybe familiarize ourselves with what exactly terrorist are likely to get and figure ways to detect it and treat victims of it if God forbid it happens.

    We already have all sorts of things like that. I wouldn't think they'd try to transport chemical weapons into the US, it would more reasonably have to be built here. And then the NSA is spying on everyone and their dog, so I think we got bases covered. The probability of chemical attack is not significantly higher than it was 20 years ago, were you running around then trying to "figure this out"? If not, then yes you are playing into the hysteria.
