Vietnamese nameEdit

What is the Vietnamese name of this event? Badagnani (talk) 20:14, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Not sure that there is one. This title isn't a proper noun, it's just a generic title. YellowMonkey (click here to vote for world cycling's #1 model!) 01:38, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Any further identification of the chemical agent?Edit

I'm quite familiar with chemical warfare, and the descriptions in the article don't make a lot of sense. Mustard gas (dichloroethyl sulfide) is a blister agent, but, unless the concentration is immediately lethal, tends to cause burns that are not immediately evident. French WWI tear gas, AFAIK, was methyl bromide.

The only chemical weapons coming to mind that might be activated would be binary nerve agents, which are lethal but don't cause burns. Further, neither of the solutions that are mixed are especially corrosive. Howard C. Berkowitz (talk) 02:58, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

I looked at the books again and have simply stuck to it, since I know no better. YellowMonkey (click here to vote for world cycling's #1 model!) 01:38, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
It would be really appreciated if people can contribute anything more about these grenades. I could be wrong (haven't researched it recently) but as I understand it, the same batch of god-damned grenades, uniquely and precisely formulated to straddle the boundary of "crowd control" and chemical warfare, started both the gassings of World War I and led to the Vietnam war. I will admit to an irrational fear that one of these grenades is still set aside in a forgotten bunker or war museum awaiting the call of the devil that inspired it.

I notice this article uses UK spellings but a US-style date format. Is there any reason for this? --John (talk) 03:50, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
