Fox News Bret Baier reported ISIS has attacked a U.S. Base and traces of a “mustard agent” have been confirmed.
I don’t know what Barack Obama is doing but time for a serious sit-down with Russia and China since this will affect them too. Then a talk with the Arab countries including Saudi Arabia. If/when confirmed ISIS will find out what it is like to, as they say, bring a knife to a gun fight. (And if the trail leads somewhere else we follow it there.)
According to the video report below, this occurred on Tuesday. ISIS wants to hold on to Mosul and they have used this type of mustard agent before against citizens. Our soldiers to have gear to protect themselves from exposure.
From Fox News:
The U.S base outside Qayyarah, 25 miles south of Mosul, was struck by a rocket and traces of a “mustard agent” were believed to be present, the official said. The attack was first reported by CNN.
A Pentagon official told reporters that a “tar-like black oily substance” was found on the shell, which landed within the base hundreds of yards from U.S. forces. An initial test for the agent was positive, but “could be false,” the official said. The second test was negative, possibly because the shell had been exposed to the elements.
No one was injured in the attack and there were “no signs of exposure” shown by any U.S. troops, including the two soldiers who inspected the shell. Two to four soldiers who were near the shell received full decontamination treatment.
“Unless you are right next to [the shell], exposure is unlikely,” the official said. U.S. troops at the base are equipped with chemical weapons exposure suits.
This should be immediately followed by an immediate declaration of war by congress. Enough of the JV label, ISIS needs to be part of the extinct class.
