Choking Agents.

This is coolbert:

Smells like musty hay!!

And if you  have detected the smell it is probably too late for you!!

 This particular headline from Artuz Sheva 7 might be seen as being of concern?

"Obama: Chlorine Gas Not 'Historically' a Chemical Weapon"

The choking agent chlorine gas not a chemical weapon? Historically YES but not listed as such a possible? Chlorine old-fashioned but a chemical warfare agent nonetheless inhibiting the ability of a persons to breath and deadly without question.

"Pulmonary or Choking Agents"

"Pulmonary agents (also known as 'choking' agents) compose a class of chemical compounds that disrupt normal breathing. They encompass a wide array of gases, including chlorine, ammonia, phosgene, organohalides, and nitrogen oxides.1,2"

* "Chlorine: . . . Chlorine played a . . . significant role during WWI, with German forces employing chlorine gas against their adversaries during the Second Battle of Ypres in 1915."

* "Phosgene: . . . During WWI, phosgene emerged as a sophisticated alternative to chlorine gas."

* "Chloropicrin: . . . it is not as lethal as other choking agents, chloropicrin, which is also known as a riot control agent, induces severe vomiting and excessive tear formation in its victims."

That list of chemical agents as used during World War One [historical usage?] quite extensive indeed. NOT all lethal but all effective in some manner.
