  1. Soldiers need a thick cloth with liquid bicarbonate or urine to damp it then breath through the cloth. Even water would help but clearly, the bicarbonate’s the best, urine is to consider if it can’t be had. All will simply react to the chlorine and neutralise most of the effects.
    It’s even better if they can protect their eyes with swimming goggles.

    Fatalies are very unlikely to happen with chlorine unless gigantic quantities are spread and you’re in a trench, cave or lying on the ground.
    BTW, Why SAA doesn’t uses good old CS tear gas massively? This is not illegal under international laws and a real disturbance and a very incapacitating shit too and it’s harder to protect yourself than with chlorine : you need a real gas-mask… SWATs as riot-polices use it massively, don’t they?

    • Although using CS would be legal to do by the SAA, the Propaganda blowback from the Masters of the Universe in Washington would outweigh any benefits.

      All that can be done is to prepare the SAA with gas masks etc and to keep informing the world what the U$ supplied terrorists are doing.

      The general public in many nations are waking up to see the Yankee duplicity and politicians in those countries will need to consider this.

      The time is nearing when Russia is able to strike some knock out blows to end this U$ inspired terror.

      • As I said : You don’t even need gas masks against chlorine.
        If you have to take a building, better use CS grenades, flashbangs etc!
        I don’t think this is US inspired terror : it’s more KSA/Qatar/Turkey geopolitical interests to have their pipeline and… To have the Russia-EU pipeline shut too. I bet if there are judicial inquiries, you won’t find a single buck linked to the US! It’d simply be illegal even in the US laws and be sure they took care to no end trapped like in the Irangate case… You can be sure the 1st fuse will be Erdogan! And well, think about it : KSA and Qatar directly arming Qaeda+affiliates, they’re simply putting themselves in plain light as funding and arming terror gangs. Think about how US cops have the right to trick people into implying themselves into a criminal activity in order to then arrest them. Such traps are simply forbidden to cops in many countries, but not in the US…

    • SAA DOESN’T uses chemical weapons! All the times it was said they were doing so, it ended proved to be a false flag!
      The use of chemical weapons is TOTALLY banned world wide! AND Syria has banned their use too by signing international conventions!
