The decades-long U.S. push to eliminate its own chemical weapons stockpiles illustrates the tough road ahead if Washington and Damascus come to a deal. The Army organization responsible for destroying America’s massive quantities of munitions says the effort will take two years longer than initially planned and cost $2 billion more than its last estimate.<<
Did anyone else notice we have stockpiles of WMDs that have been outlawed for more than one hundred years?
Well, Obama lied about that "outlawed for one hundred years" thingy.
They weren't outlawed until 1997 according to this Wiki page:
1993: The United Nations Chemical Weapons Convention was signed by 162 member countries, banning the production and stockpiling of many chemical weapons, including sarin. It went into effect on 29 April 1997, and called for the complete destruction of all specified stockpiles of chemical weapons by April 2007.
