In light of the bizarre murder/assasination of N. Korean dictator's 1/2 bro at a Malaysian airport, the world's "deadliest weapon of mass destruction" has been herald as VX in all the news headlines. I haven't heard of it... and apparently not very many others have as well?
VX is part of a group of nerve-agents (organophosphates) that have been created and used as chemical warfare as "weapons of mass deconstruction." It can be diseminated via liquid or vapor that has neither scent nor taste, which makes it so terrifying. Watch and learn more about the history of VX on the History Channel clip.
But I don't understand how VX differs from Sarin (another nerve-agent used for Chemical Warfare but possibly in Syria and Iraq)? I don't understand how they differ in their symptoms and manifesting themselves.
Why is VX so much more potent?
