I am waiting for more information. I should have an update by morning.
Earlier this month on May 10, 2010, Stratfor reported on a chemical weapons attack on a girls school in Afghanistan.
Recently, 17 students at a Kabul, Afghanistan, girls high school fell ill and had to be hospitalized, along with several teachers. Doctors at the hospital agreed that it was some kind of poison, but have not been able to identify it yet. All the victims smelled something odd when they got to school, then fell ill, with some of the students losing consciousness. This is the second such incident at this school, and there was a similar attack at a girls high school further north.If they have actually begun using chemical weapons, we've got two problems:
How are the ROE going to deal with this, and
What will President Lightworker do?
We've got troops in friggin' Afghanistan being ordered to patrol with an empty chamber, and now this. If they spot bad guys setting up a rocket and wearing chemical suits will they be allowed to whack it, or will someone insist they wait for it to be launched and see what comes out of the warhead? Let's say they shoot some rockets full of nerve, blister or blood agent into a FOB or city; what will the President do?
This has the potential to get really bad really damn fast.
