You mean chemical weapons to kill Americans? Ummmm, no? Instead, they'll use local police and SWAT to fire off non lethal gas, rubber bullets, and good old fashion beat downs because that's what they've always used.

Would we have a smooth transition of power toward the end of hostilities or would the american ruling class start tossing nerve agent around? This is a what if question certainly but should be asked. It goes to the question as to how deep we are really in. How real is "We the People" to those that really don't have to give a dam about the people at some point. Just a bunch of economic units anyway......eaters and sh*ter, breeder and pains in the ass at any number of levels.

I think gas would be the least of your worries. An "armed" rebellion or civil war would consist of the American populace armed with normal guns versus the government which has tanks, bombs, missiles, aircraft carriers, planes, RPG's, Gatling guns etc etc.
It's like taking a knife to a gun fight, so to speak.
