MSF Confirms 'Chemical Deaths' in Syria
Medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres says it has treated about 3,600 patients with "neurotoxic symptoms" in Syria, of whom 355 have died.
It said the patients had arrived in three hospitals it supports in the Damascus governorate on 21 August - when opposition activists say chemical attacks were launched against rebels.
MSF says staff at the hospitals described a large number of patients arriving with symptoms including convulsions, extreme salivation, contracted pupils and sight and respiratory problems, the BBC informs.
The charity said many were treated with atropine, a drug administered to those with "neurotoxic symptoms".
MSF has no staff of its own in the Damascus region, but has been supporting hospitals and medical networks there since 2012.
Since fighting began in March 2011 between the Syrian Government and opposition groups seeking to oust President Bashar Al-Assad as many as 100,000 people have been killed, almost 2 million have fled to neighbouring countries and a further 4 million have been internally displaced.

Well I remember this going on, in answer to your question PP. General Mac Arthur used Brisbane Australia as a base and headquarters for himself el al. There is also a General MacArthur Museum in Brisbane which I disagree with and find questionable.
Regarding the stats that you quoted, incomprehensible that USA thought it so very necessary to inflict such destruction and irreversible carnage upon Vietnam and its people and to use such overkill for a prolonged time. USA involvement from 1950 to 1975 in one form or another.
Also, the whole South Pacific Ocean was swarming with USA fleets and troops during that time, and they just dumped and left all their rubbish behind, mountains of it; and which all still remains until this very day on every island that they used for their own purposes.
As the United States is the most advanced industrial nation in world it was able to make full use of the latest developments in technology in its war against North Vietnam. B-52 bombers, that could fly at heights that prevented them being seen or heard, dropped 8 million tons of bombs on Vietnam between 1965 and 1973. This was over three times the amount of bombs dropped throughout the whole of the Second World War and worked out at approximately 300 tons for every man, woman and child living in Vietnam.
Agent Orange is the combination of the code names for Herbicide Orange (HO) and Agent LNX, one of the herbicides and defoliants used by the U.S. military as part of its chemical warfare program, Operation Ranch Hand, during the Vietnam War from 1961 to 1971.
Vietnam estimates 400,000 people were killed or maimed, and 500,000 children born with birth defects as a result of its use. The Red Cross of Vietnam estimates that up to 1 million people are disabled or have health problems due to Agent Orange.
Anyone remember this going on?. And what did the world do to help the victims and punish the perpetrators?
God Bless America
