Similar in most recent reports, United Nations have long-established that the extremist terrorist group called ISIS, which stands for Islamic State of Syria and Iraq have apprehended the chemical weapons facility in Iraq and Libya. Inspectors from the United Nations informed that in one warehouse alone can hold approximately 2,500 Sarin equipped chemical rockets. (Hutchinson, 2014). On TV, we have observed President Obama numerous times influence caution and pleading for all Americans to pay close attention to the possible risk and danger of chemical assaults. After the 9/11 attack on American soil, the federal government is presumptuous that terrorists are aiming on trigger another attack leading to a high number of casualties by using either chemical or biological agents.

Sarin Gas For my situation, I became a terrorist and with some extensive planning, funding and time as to not to bring any police attention to myself. I would be neighborly, friendly with those in the town I lived. We have all heard people interviewed express shock when they find out that a neighbor committed a crime. I would begin to list all chemicals and necessary equipment needed. Since there is an abundance of recipes for Sarin available on the Internet, I decided not to go into detail of how to prepare sarin. However, all formulas necessitate the know-how with the proper lab equipment and the unashamed ignore for one’s own life, to produce Sarin. I would need a lab for all chemicals needed and since I picked in my situation as Nevada to live in, I would pick myself a nice chuck of desert land. This is a part of the funding power and the backing of state controlled terrorist organization such as ISIS. It may take some years to gather all chemicals. Learn or recruit skilled lab technicians to assist in making of the Sarin gas in the form of a liquid. I chose liquid and my target would be the ventilation system of the MGM grand, one of the biggest hotels in Vegas. Vegas vastly populated city most of the year. I would choose to release the sarin during a large event such as a UFC or Boxing match hosted by the MGM. After the Sarin has been released, within seconds the people exposed will have toxic effects. Some of the effects may include: running nose, coughing, chest tightness, headaches, etc. (CDC 2013). Contingent on the volume of Sarin and stretch of time a person is exposed that would decide the extent of the attack. Since I used Sarin in a liquid as it benefits my attack. I could contain the liquid in and vessel I want to place it inside. If I was to disguise myself as a pest control employee. I could carry the liquid sarin in any of my standard bug spray jugs. I would then be able to make my way to the HVAC units and spray the chemical weapon allowing it to spread into the entire hotel

Sarin Gas system. In my opinion this would be the best way to spread the Sarin. It is the quickest and easiest once I have access to the hotel systems. The effect would cause physical and psychological damage to all involved.
