"White House press secretary Sean Spicer created a major headline at this afternoon’s press briefing when he denounced Russia for sticking by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the wake of recent chemical attack on citizens, saying someons “as despicable as Adolph Hitler…didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.”
"Spicer made it worse: “I think when you come to sarin gas, he was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing.”
And why might that be? Why might Hitler have not used Sarin gas? Maybe because he was such a nice guy? Let's see if we can find out, something which will take approximately 45 seconds online:
"Sarin was discovered in 1938 in Wuppertal-Elberfeld in Germany by scientists at IG Farben...it is the most toxic of the four G-Series nerve agents made by Germany...
In mid-1939, the formula for the agent was passed to the chemical warfare section of the German Army Weapons Office, which ordered that it be brought into mass production for wartime use. Pilot plants were built, and a high-production facility was under construction (but was not finished) by the end of World War II."
So, in brief, Sarin was invented in Nazi Germany, by IG Farben, one of the worst industrial collaborators with the Nazis, and whose other contributions to a decent society included the production of Zyklon B, the gas used at the death camps; Germany was in the process of building a factory to mass produce Sarin for use in war until the end of World War II closed the facility. Hitler was not using the gas because the factory wasn't operating yet. That certainly qualifies Hitler as a far nicer guy than Bashir Al Assad, I guess. Like I say, 45 seconds to find the Wikipedia article, and about two minutes to read it.
And I cannot resist a mention of the aforementioned death camps, referred to by Spicer in this speech as "holocaust centers," or as we know them here at Green Eagle, as "Jewish Disneylands."
If, by any chance, you are interested in more about the development of the German chemical industry and its willing collaboration with the Hitler war machine, you might like to read an excellent book, Hell's Cartel: IG Farben and the Making of Hitler's War Machine, by Diarmuid Jeffries, available in a Kindle version as well as a hard copy. Be sure to read to the end, where the belligerent intransigence of a right wing American judge prevented any but the most symbolic punishment of the monsters involved.
