Seraphina Posted September 3, 2004 #51 Share Posted September 3, 2004 The reason they lost so many people in the theatre incident was poor testing of the gas...they hadn't done any research to see how it would work in an enclosed area, or taken into account how it would effect the elderly on the young. Having said that, I do believe it was justified...losing a handful of the hostages was still far better than losing all of them, which would have happened if those loonies had been allowed to maintain that situation much longer. To be honest though, I don't see how it can be used here....I'm not sure how you can gauge an exact dossage of the gas that would be able to have its effects on the terrorists, grown men, without killing or at least doing serious damage to a small child. Overall, I just find this whole affair sickening...I don't see how anyone, no matter how right they think they are, could actually hold the lives of children to ransom...it just makes me go back to my old belief that religious fundamentalists aren't people, and shouldn't be treated like they are.
