Those people did not even give a thought to the possibility of that strange sounding chemical being any more than an evil poison. Most of us learn that water consists of two hydrogen atoms (dihydrogen) and one oxygen atom (monoxide) in elementary and middle school.
This is one of the reasons why I teach. You cannot do much with adults who choose to be stupid and ignorant, but there is hope for the kids. Knowledge is power, literally.

Malkin brings out the deafening silence of America over this atrocity. Reasonable Americans should cry out, or at least speak out against this violence and blatant human rights violation. Are Americans so cowed by fear of the reaction by groups like CAIR who support terrorism and are a squeaky wheel for Muslim issues in this country. The group whose vision for America represents the Capitol Building as a mosque with a minaret (click on the image):
Shocking, isn't it?
Please don't forget the Korean Christian Missionaries in your prayers. And speak out against the violence and atrocities carried out in the name of Islam - in this country as well as around the world.
Malkin says it best:
Curiously, those who argue that we need to "understand" Islamic terrorists demonstrate little effort to "understand" the Christian evangelical missionaries who risk their lives to spread the gospel -- not by sword, but through acts of compassion, healing and education. An estimated 16,000 Korean mission workers risk their lives across the globe -- from Africa to the Middle East, China and North Korea.These are true practitioners of a religion of peace, not the hate-mongers with bombs and AK-47s strapped to their chests who slay instead of pray their way to martyrdom.
