See? see? the neo-cons were right, those Syrians and Iranians are up to no good and there is now incontrovertible evidence that they have actually used chemical weapons against soldiers of a NATO country. This is all because the Iranians were imperialistic powers waging war against the poor old defenceless NATO soldiers. Heinous crimes.
Here’s the story: I quote:
Archaeologists have found the oldest evidence of chemical warfare yet after studying the bodies of 20 Roman soldiers' found underground in Syria 70 years ago. Clues left at the scene revealed the Persians were lying in wait as the Romans dug a tunnel during a siege – then pumped in toxic gas – produced by sulphur crystals and bitumen – to kill all the Romans in minutes.
They had been part of a large Roman garrison defending the empire outpost city of Dura-Europos, on the Euphrates river in modern day Syria, against a ferocious siege by an army from the powerful new Sassanian Persian empire in around AD 256."
I think we need some demonstrations on the streets protesting against the use of chemical weapons against poor old innocent Romans who were simply undertaking resistance against the dastardly imperialistic Persians. What do you think?
