Ancient Persians were the first to use chemical warfare against their enemies, a study has suggested.
A graphic depiction and following news at BBC service has particularly got my attention today. It was, I guess, more about the use of gassing (!) terminology and appropriation of the 'method' to the contemporary 'villains' aka 'Persians.'
Sometimes it is clear the news-writers has a specific memory hunt and manipulation in their mind. Of course, at the end even the archaeologists 'suggest' this is a 'suggestion'.
Nevertheless... Those Iranians... Even and after all, they were the ones our Romans slaughtered after overcoming bad gas!
