I was not aware that Sarin gas degrades. Now the containers may over time, but the nerve gas does not, because it is not exposed to anything that would degrade it, like sunlight, extreme heat, etc.

Minor point but I seem to recall that Sarin and another nerve agent are actually and initially comprized of binary elements. Parts ''A'' and "B".
In the binary form neither component is hazardous - only when combined do they achieve potency - and so I am thinking, the ''shelf life'' could be very long.
Could be quite wrong of course - that happens

Yeah and I suppose that when I was with the 15th MEU we never found artillary muntitions with "trace" finding of bio...You mean to tell me that they didn't had time to truck that stuff into ummmm Syria or Iran, SAY IT AINT SO.
sorry, I'm still just a little cynical of the media, somehow I don't think I'm the only one here with these "feelings"

As I keep pointing out to the anti-war types, destroying bio weapons only takes bleach!
Chemical weapons could be buried in a country the size of CA or trucked almost anywhere across the middle east, given the time the invasion was debated.
If you do a Google search, you will find an article by the media slamming the US military for not guarding barrels from a nuclear site in Iraq that people were getting radiation sickness from high level contamination. That level of contamination only results from either reactor waste or a nuclear bomb program. Iraq never had a functioning reactor.

This article is nothing new... they have found realitively small caches of this type of ordinance stashed all over.
THE MOST INTERESTING thing in the article, and my suspicion why most news orgs. didnt carry it is this statement from the article:
"This does not reflect a capacity that was built up after 1991," the official said, adding the munitions "are not the WMDs this country and the rest of the world believed Iraq had, and not the WMDs for which this country went to war."

Trust me the Atlanta Journal Constitution is about as liberal as they come. Very anti-gun, anti-Bush, ant-war.
