    FYI: atropine is somewhat effective in treating nerve gases, such as Tabun (GA) and Sarin (GB), which Iraq is known to have used against the Kurds and Iran.

    Of course during that fight, they switched over to Mustard Gas, which doesn't have an antidote (not getting it on you via a chemical suit is your best protection).

    More than you probably want to know
