And now it is being reported that British Special Forces have been ordered to carry gas protection suits because it is feared that Islamic State has got its hands on some chemical weapons.
Britain's elite troops operating in Iraq are carrying gas protection suits because Islamic State fighters are feared to have taken control of Syrian chemical weapons.
Special Forces units have carried out reconnaissance in the region to provide up-to-date information on the jihadists for RAF airstrikes, and are also training Kurdish fighters battling the regime.
But despite international efforts to destroy President Assad's chemical weapon stockpile, it is thought that some may have fallen into the hands of ISIS after the militants seized vast swathes of Iraq and Syria - and they could be used on troops in retaliation for the UK joining the U.S.-led air campaign.

First, the OPCW confirmed that Syria had given up its chemical weapons.
Second, Iraq was invaded 11 years ago and any chemical weapons would surely have been found by now (if indeed that is why we went in).
A much more probable explanation for the source of these chemical weapons is the Saudi-Turkey Axis of Evil that was responsible for Ghouta.
They are going to pull a fast one again.
And this time BSF are going to be involved so nobody fucks this one up like Ghouta.
And if you're scratching your head, asking yourself, "would our boys do such a thing?", then I would answer, "Of course they fucking would! They were running the al Qaeda rebels in Libya throughout 2011!"
