    Thank you for the info. Use of CS gas I am well aware of specifically with tunnels in Vietnam. What is claimed by Cambodian Government is that these "Chemical bombs" are causing serious burns and death. I know of no such bomb used by US since WW1. https://www.khmertimeskh.com/50108643/more-chemical-bomb-sites-found/

    I had previously read about Denmark's involvement in the Vietnam War, but all I read was of stories like this - http://thetandd.com/news/topnews/it-was-just-rough-denmark-veteran-still-thinks-about-classmates/article_e4190b07-431e-5829-988b-5a9020e8807c.html Officially, Denmark was not part of the southern military, but of course, articles like above show they were. I am yet to find anything off the internet that shows Denmark was an active participant in combat in that war. I met a guy in Saigon in 2016 from Denmark. He claims he was one of 8,000 Danish soldiers seconded to the US military to fight in Vietnam. The above article supports a basis of truth to this. This guy told me he served a year in Vietnam as a combat soldier under secondment wearing a US uniform. I simply can't find a reference I would hang my hat on.. I understand only through hear-say and through direct conversations with guys who claimed they served there that other combat soldiers were seconded from Canada, England, France, Norway and Sweden to serve as (pretend) US soldiers in the war. I would really love to find some documentation to show this actually occurred.

    Giving you the benefit of the doubt - do you want to clarify your question? Perhaps English is not your native language and you are trying to have a reasonable discussion. Of course we know that the U.S. cannot "put a ban" on weapons - those are internationally negotiated treaties. The U.S. has unilaterally decided to NOT use some weapons due to our feelings about the side effects, etc of those weapons.

    Oh, please. You should first, perhaps, look into who first used chemical weapons in warfare and when. Then, perhaps, you should read up on the international efforts since that usage for armaments control and limitations. Frankly an internet forum is hardly the place to embark on a topic upon which entire college courses are taught. You also might want to learn to discern between a "nuke", a nuclear device, and and an atomic bomb; if you knew your ordnance you would know they are not the same thing. Unless, of course, your purpose is just a feeble anti-American screed. If so, you should say so.
