When we were destroying our stockpiles we sent them to Johnston Island. Johnston Island in 1950s and 1960s was used as an American nuclear weapons test site. Later on,the island was the Johnston Atoll Chemical Agent Disposal System (JACADS). All of the chemical weapons that were once stored on Johnston Island have been incinerated, and that process was completed in 2000 and JACADS demolished by 2003.

Officials were careful to point out that the US ship will not dock at a Syrian port. The plan is for another internationally-flagged ship to dock at the Syrian port of Latakia, load the liquids, and then sail to a port in another country where the materials will be loaded onto the Cape Ray.

There is a reason why the U.S. ship will not port there. One, its a major hot bed of Russian military activity and its in Alawite territory. Assad is an Alawite.
