CODOH repeats the "revisionist" claim about nerve gas being superior

I have heard that the Germans had vast stockpiles of Poison and
Biological weapons at the end of the war. If this is true why would
they use a commercially available "pesticide" to choke to death
"millions" of people? Do you know about or can you confirm the
stockpiles of chemical weapons which were after all made and designed
to kill a large number of people quickly? It really does not make any
sense to use a pesticide for this purpose.

CODOH replies: Good questions. The Germans had indeed developed and
stockpiled large quantities of nerve gas, which they never used, even
as Russian troops were overrunning Berlin and Germany was facing total
defeat. If they had been the inhuman beings they are portrayed as, it
doesn't seem they would have hesitated for an instant, particularly as
there was no defense against the gas at the time.
