100% proof it was not Sarin or any acetylcholinesterase inhibitor class chemical weapon.Submitted by firefox on Thu, 08/29/2013 - 19:11
It's 100% BS from ANY side that claims it's sarin.
Sarin is a potent inhibitor of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase. This means that the people with LD would be twisted into a ball and most likely the muscle attachment points would be sheared off at the bone in some cases because of extreme contraction of every muscle in the body.
The biggest unequivocally undeniable FACT that this is not Sarin or any VX class nerve agent... the pupils are not contracted to a pin prick in ANY of the affected people in the videos or pictures. People a few km downwind of this so called "chemical attack" would have had extreme contraction of the pupils, at a minimum, and the pupil contraction would become evident within a few seconds even at extremely low doses.
So if Russia or the US or ANYONE says its Sarin or ANY VX class acetylcholinesterase inhibitor... you can be 100% they are lying.
edit for clarity
I'm not saying it wasn't some kind of chemical weapon. But you can be 100% sure its not a acetylcholinesterase inhibitor class chemical(which sarin, and the vast majority of fast kill CW's are.)
2nd edit for what sarin exposure would look like
