Government


story here

Leading neuroscientists believe that the UK Government may be about to sanction the development of nerve agents for British police that would be banned in warfare under an international treaty on chemical weapons.

Good find. You should change the thread title so it gets more attention. Preferably to "Government 'may sanction nerve-agent use on rioters', scientists fear"

Thanks for the read

Wow! This is some scary information. I really don't like the direction this world is going.

That's pretty alarming. Article says CS gas is exempt from the ban treaty of the British Gov.


They concluded that the Government may be preparing to exploit a loophole in the Chemical Weapons Convention allowing the use of incapacitating chemical agents for domestic law enforcement.op source

More loophools to lead to ...
VX gas. It was supposed to be eliminated. But don't let history repeat itself...

The Deadlistest Weapon: VX Nerve Gas
Documentary about it.

I wouldn't doubt the state to use such methods to be honest. They've juggled with the thought of using live ammo if another riot breaks out, so this isn't exactly beyond them.

whats not been said yet and is even scarier than Nerve gas is what would bring on an event to cause such a riot?

While TPTB scoff at such things and put out the DIS-info they prep (ha ha preppers) The Governments of Western Civilization Prep for and event also....this leaves something to be said about the whole friggin thing

Does anybody know how effective a stock-standard gas mask would be in counteracting such a chemical?

A gas mask would work for not inhaling it but nerve agents are also absorbed through the skin. So some kind of protective suit would be needed as well

They're only asking for civil unrest and outright warfare if they ever use nerve gas on it's own people.

Then again, they could just be testing their limits realizing how docile society has become. They could get away with murdering their own citizens and would be able to spin it with the MSM so that the majority of the populace supports it.

What happens when you have tens to hundreds or thousands die from such use of chemical weapons on the populous? I wonder if people will finally fight back or just lay down like the good serfs they have proven themselves to be.

They would not have to spin it in my opinion, they could come right out and say on the mainstream news (that they are gassing teenagers in riots). There would be a divided opinion on it because of the way that society divides age groups.

During the last riots almost everyone I know over 30 years old was advocating (some even wanted to petition) for the army to stop the riots with live ammunition.

The majority of people are already suffering from chronic stupidity in the UK.

I reckon that a lot of people will read this article and say to themselves "finally, they are going to do something to stop this from happening again"

Horrifying.

Yes, people have become so lame and stupid. Yet how come some of us are still awake? I dispair at humanity. The authorities disgust me how they lie, cheat and murder at will. Just makes me feel nauseous. That is what life has become. Just hope that the Bible is true and they get their just deserts for their crimes. What else is there to believe? It is impossible for us to do anything. It never works. Even revolutions just bring about more suffering and violence. Horrible! I just take solace in my U.S.A Nazareth made Martin acoustic guitar. It is the only thing I will miss when I die! Lol, but don't they have harps in Heaven? May be Martin make harps in Heaven?

Yes, we would be forced to fight them with all our might if they dare hurt our young ones. John Lennon once said, "Insane people with insane objectives"! That sums it up for me!

I think more 'allowed' to fight them than anything. If government actually used a weapon like this, it would mean we have passed the point of no return and people will know once and for all their government does not work for them, but against them.

I do hope they realize what can of worms
they will be opening here.

Once a gov goes down this road,
it's all downhill after that.

I hear Nero playing his fiddle.

There are so many ways they could do this without permanently harming people.

Nitrous oxide.

Darts filled with very highly concentrated THC. (At massive doses, THC makes people fall asleep, but doesn't do any other harm)

Darts filled with either liquid '___' or ecstasy. '___' if it was highly concentrated, would make people unable to continue rioting, or even walk, because they'd be hallucinating to the point where they wouldn't know what was real. Ecstasy would make people just want to hug each other, or lie down.

Darts filled with morphine.

Spraying people in the face with a combination of urine and rotten eggs that have been pre-fermented for a month before deployment.

Spraying people in the face with Ipecac syrup, or something similar. This might be a bit more harmful, but not much. People wouldn't be able to do anything else, because they'd just stand in one place vomiting.

So to me, using nerve agents says that they WANT to hurt people; not that they have to.
