After the tragic incident of September 11th, Americans are now more aware of biological and chemical threats than any other time in history. But are Americans connecting the dots?

Biological and Chemical Warfare Are Here Now


Tri-Bullet Grim Legacy
Poisoned: Thousands of Iranian soldiers who fought in the war against Iraq have never recovered from their battlefield exposure to gas and nerve agents.

Tri-Bullet Did Saddam's army test poison gas on missing 5,000?, whereas the US Department of Agriculture sent Iraq samples of chemicals that could be used to protect crops and other agricultural produce, with pesticides that were later developed for chemical warfare, despite repeated warnings from American officials that the cultures could be of use against human beings.

Tri-Bullet CropLife Brief - Security After The War
One anchor was heard to say, "Pesticides and the nerve agents we are looking for are essentially derived from the same chemical family." Well, some are, but in America, certainly not all.

Tri-Bullet Pesticides Used in Simulated Terrorist Attack
While this was only a simulation, set up by the city to test and train emergency response teams responding to a terrorist attack, government officials and others responsible for protecting the public realize the danger if toxic chemicals, such as pesticides, and the ease with which they can be obtained.

Chemical Agent Fact Sheets


Tri-Bullet VX-Nerve Agent Chemists in the United Kingdom searching for new insecticides came across compounds that were extremely toxic to humans. The British shared the discovery with the U.S. Army in 1953 and a systematic investigation of these new compounds was begun at Edgewood. The Army discovered they were more persistent and much more toxic than the G-series agents.

Tri-Bullet HD-Mustand Blister Agent There is no known antidote for mustard exposure; the process of cellular destruction is irreversible.

Tri-Bullet GA-Tabun Nerve Agent In 1936, Germany first developed Tabun as an insecticide. Dr. Gerhard Schrader first noticed the effects of nerve agents on humans when he and his lab assistant began to experience shortness of breath and contraction of the pupils. Tabun was the first nerve agent discovered.

Tri-Bullet GB-Sarin Nerve Agent Sarin was developed in 1938 in Germany as a pesticide.

Tri-Bullet GD-Soman Nerve Agent Soman was discovered in Germany in 1944. GD is a lethal cholinesterase inhibitor. Doses that are potentially life threatening may be only slightly larger than those producing least effects.
