Chemical weapons destruction resumes at Colorado plant

PUEBLO The Army has resumed destruction of obsolete chemical weapons in southern Colorado after a shutdown prompted by liquid hazardous waste seeping from a storage tank.

Officials say the work resumed Wednesday when another tank was returned to service. The cause of the seep is under investigation.

Pueblo Chemical Depot is destroying 780,000 shells containing 2,500 U.S. tons of mustard agent.

Officials say the liquid that seeped out is a byproduct of the process and contained no chemical weapons. They say less than 8 ounces escaped the tank.

1. Huh ... so the USA was harboring 780,000 SHELLS of BANNED CHEMICAL WEAPONS ...

For what ... how many decades?

How old are these "Mustard Agents" , I wonder?

I'm going to BET ... it's a lot longer than 2002.

So, that means we only illegally harbored 5 MILLION POUNDS of the stuff. Easily missed.

Meanwhile we attacked Iraq cause they MAYBE had SOME, but we couldn't wait for inspectors to even finish looking, it was SO URGENT ... we just had to attack their Sovereign Nation and depose their Government, slaughter 100 of 1000's and displace Millions more people.

While we did what we accused them of.

Huh ... Oops!
