Look, We Finally Found Chemical Weapons!

In, uhh, Alabama.

Army Depot Starts Destroying Chemical Weapons

Aug. 11 - The U.S. Army plans to destroy as many as eight chemical weapons on Monday.

The Army Depot in Anniston has the task of incinerating the Cold War era weapons.

This weekend, the facility destroyed at least two rockets, each containing enough Sarin gas to wipe out an entire city.

Although many protested the chemical destruction, the judge approved the process late last week.

Some Anniston residents didn't argue. They just got ready. Mike Wood said, "It's going to have to happen. It was going to happen sooner or later any way - we're pretty much prepared. We went ahead and got the safety stuff we needed."

In case of a leak, the Army handed out 16,000 free protective kits, which include gas masks.
