Essay: Mustard Gas

Sample Essay

In the intercept, a chemical weapon known as “Mustard Gas” has been mentioned twice. Even more so, a specific quantity of mustard gas has been mentioned: 100 liters. An aspect that is not to be forgotten here is that the intercepted intelligence is one that is the words of a terrorist. Therefore before jumping to the first conclusion that the terrorist elements may be planning on using Mustard Gas, it is necessary to understand that the referral to Mustard Gas may be a referral to some other biological agent that the terrorists are planning on using, and that the mention of the 100 liters may be indicating the extent of damage that the planned chemical agent is expected to cause.

Mustard Gas was invented in 1822 and was first used by Germany in World War 1, after that it was used in the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Poland, Japan, Egypt, Iraq and quite possibly Sudan.

Such are the adverse effects of Mustard Gas that not only Mustard Gas but all similar chemical agents were banned from use in 1925 by the Geneva Protocol. A more recent measure is the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1922 which not only prohibits use, but eliminates the root of the cause by prohibiting the very production of Mustard Gas and all similar chemical weapons (CDC, 2006). Governments of countries around the world have rigorously taken part and still continue to do so in the detection of Mustard Gas storage sites that may have been left off from wars in the past and continue to dispose off the canisters.
