OK, i maybe getting my info from a film (a good one at that!) but this stuff is realy nasty. One VX rocket can take out an entire city of poeple, with more left to spare. First it melts ur skin off, then the poison stop nuero messages going down ur spine, then you spasm so hard you brake your own back and spit your guts out. Watch out for this nasty little bugger!!

I bet you got that from "The Rock". I dont know if the actulat syptoms are true but I do know that one missile can wipe out all of Manhatten, and kill everyone. To make matters worse Saddam has a couple millions tons. I belive that it was said he had 3.9 tons missing.

According to this report, those symptoms are a little far-fetched, but it also says it's never been tested on a human.

How it works: Similar to sarin, it disrupts the functioning of nerves that control breathing. The victim dies of suffocation when the diaphragm fails to expand and contract. Unlike any other biological or chemical weapons, VX can kill simply by touching the skin.

Deadly Amount: One milligram can kill a person

Previous Uses: Never been used before, except on research animals.

Symptoms: Increased salivation, coughing, runny nose, headache and nausea.

Delivery: Artillery shells, bombs and land mines.
Prevention: Gas masks, skin covered by thick clothing.

Yeah that movie was awesome. But the stuff PA posted is not going to make things better. Only one milligram can kill one human. Just imangine how much they can fit into a missile and just imagine how many millimeters are in 3.9 tons of it? Scary. For a fact I do know that one missile warhead can wipe out and kills veryone in Manhatten. Or is it all of New York City?

I read on MSNBC earlier a report that Saddam may make a type of VX paste and "slime" the roads leading into Bahgdad with it.

Personally, I don't think he will use and bio or chem weapons, but then maybe I'm just being optimistic.

I am a Paramedic in Texas...
I have Had Extensive WMD and Biological Weapons Training....

Some of the Symptoms of VX Poisoning are

Sweating at the sight of contact
Muscle Spasm at Site of Contact
Miosis ( Constriction of Pupils)
Angina Pectoris (Chest Pain)
Runny Nose

Basicly it Stops The Transmission of Certian Chemicals from crossing the synapse between 2 neurons.

Tons and Tons of Atropine... or mark I kits if you have them.

You keep pumping the patient full of atropine until they stop "Leaking"
