THERE SHOULD BE ACCOUNTABILITY FOR CHEMICAL WARFARE

It is unacceptable for governments to use poisonous, toxic gas on their own people. To fiendishly and irresponsibly oversee the release of thousands of liters of toxic chemicals into the air is at best criminal, and at worst a complete betrayal of its' people. For thousands of people to die from the air they are breathing is something that the global community cannot put up with. This calls for swift intervention on behalf the people of the governments who do this, and regime change. No leader trusted with protecting its' people in a peaceful and diplomatic manner should be allowed to continue with such malevolence. It's time for multilateral action to stop this. It's time to put this to an end.

I support intervention in the United States to stop the chemical warfare of petrol gas, chromium trioxide in the water, and carbon monoxide. It is unacceptable for a country to declare war on it's own people, murdering them with a high rate of respiratory deaths and malnutrition from the release of these chemicals.

IT MUST END NOW.

5. Sounds like the U.S. and the way our corporations are allowed to...

pollute this country and our food supply:

"It is unacceptable for a country to declare war on it's own people, murdering them with a high rate of respiratory deaths and malnutrition from the release of these chemicals."


Let's bomb the U.S.A.!

14. None of it was really sarcastic, honestly.

 

Except the part where I called for "multilateral" action to stop it. However, other intervention is absolutely necessary. Organized intervention. Boots on the ground. Catch my drift?

9. Yes, Chem/bio weaps, IS a violation of international humanitarian law. period.

10. Not to mention chemicals in food and beauty products...

Most of the products found on drug store shelves in the U.S. (shampoos, lotions, etc.) are banned in Scandinavia and parts of Europe because of the chemical content. Just another example of how "our" gov't is a front for corporations.


Edited for clarity
