Chemical Weapons to be Used?

The news tonight is full of reports that the Iraqi government (Saddam or whoever is still functioning) has ordered the troops defending Baghdad to use chemical weapons if coalition troops come within a certain distance of Baghdad. No surprise, obviously, but I doubt whether such weapons are particularly formidable against soldiers who are prepared and equipped for them, as opposed to defenseless civilian populations. The upside here, obviously, is that Saddam’s use of WMD’s is the ultimate vindication of the President’s war effort.
