Americans use Chemical Weapons against Iraqi Civilians

Only joking. But if they did there would be tremendous outrage and condemnation from all the Arab and Muslim nations around the world. But it's not so bad. It's Muslim on Muslim violence. Barely worth mentioning.

Insurgents are increasingly using poison gas to kill their victims. Nice.

Twenty people have been killed and 50 injured in a suspected chlorine bomb in Iraq's Diyala province, police say.

The attack happened in an open-air market in the village of Abu Sayda at about 2000 (1600 GMT) on Tuesday.

A police spokesman in the provincial capital Baquba said doctors at a local hospital believed the nature of victims' burns suggested poison gas.

Use of chlorine bombs has become more common since the start of the year, says a BBC correspondent in Baghdad.

Last month a bomb using chlorine and high explosive killed 35 people in Ramadi, west of the capital.

Chlorine - widely used as a cleaner and purifier in areas of poor water sanitation - is easy to obtain in Iraq.

Chlorine gas burns the skin on contact and can be fatal after a few breaths.

In February the United States military reported finding a bomb factory near Falluja, where chlorine car bombs were being constructed. [Surely not?! Falluja was like a civilian massacre by the pig dog Americans wasn't it?]

Diyala province - with its mixed Shia and Sunni Muslim population - has been the scene of frequent violence of a sectarian nature as well as attacks by anti-US insurgents.

    I agree it is barely worth mentioning, just cause it happens everday - learnt to expect it.
    but I would argue about the no outrage from muslims... I see that everyday too.

    Of course there is fighting on blogs today ... why put yourself through looking? Its just as expected and hardly worth mentioning.
    just like the muslim on muslim violence ............. this is the song that never ends it just goes on and on my friend. ..........

    but I've always preferred to be a trend setter then follow along with the current fashion .........
    sooo, if you dont mind, I think I'll just drop my comment here for today and rest.......... everywhere else out there is too stupid boring and crazy.

    ...err except that the Americans DID use chemical weapons against Iraqis, until the whole 'white phosphorous' controversy started. Oh and don't forget the cluster bombs, yeah?

    I am not about to get into a debate regarding the voracity of your claim.. However can you name a person or regime that tried to wipe out an entire race with poison gas (only managed 200,000 in a couple of weeks, though) post-Hitler?
