        Chemical agent possibly found on rocket fired at US troops in Iraq

        Excerpt:

        A rocket fired by Islamic State jihadists at US forces in Iraq may have carried a chemical agent, a US defense official said Wednesday.

        No one was injured in Tuesday’s blast near an airfield by the northern town of Qayyarah and no one showed any immediate signs of exposure to the suspected mustard agent, the official said.

          Joe, do you think this will change the MOPP level in theater?

            In hot weather mustard will disperse quick, so the multiple field test conflict isn’t surprising.

            …do you think this will change the MOPP level in theater?

            Probably not until someone dies or is injured.

            Remember there aren’t and never were WMD’s in Iraq! (Politically speaking of course) ;-)
