''If the bombardment of London [1944] really became a serious nuisance and great rockets with far-reaching and devastating effect fell on many centers of Government and labour, I should be prepared to do anything that would hit the enemy in a murderous place. I may certainly have to ask you to support me in using poison gas. We could drench the cities of the Ruhr and many other cities in which a way that most of the population would be requiring constant medical attention. We could stop all work at the flying bomb starting points. I do not see why we should always have all the disadvantages of being the gentleman while they have all the advantages of being the cad '' - - W.S. Churchill.

"Memo: From Winston Churchill To: General Ismay Date: July 6, 1944. It may be several weeks before I ask you to drench Germany with poison gas, and if we do it, let us do it one hundred per cent"

Winston Spencer Churchill advocating mass murder during wartime?


* Chemical weapons to be used ONLY if the V-1 and subsequent V-2 wunderwaffe of the German became a nuisance [?]. I had thought the V-1 rockets hardly a nuisance.

* Chemical weapons without a doubt the warring parties during WW2 had an abundance of ready to go.

* Ismay to ONLY consider the pro and con of employing such weapons. Benefits outweigh debits and by how much?

* The British during the  inter-war years [between WW1 and WW2] having great success in what was referred to as air policing. Bomb the restive colonial natives, forcing those into rebellion against the British Empire into submission or more proper behavior. Found to be extremely cost effective. Saturation of German cities with chemical weapons during WW2 reminiscent [?] of air policing?
