Whiskey Pete: Sorry...Wrong thread :(
UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: And how do you know Iraq Syria has chemical weapons of mass destruction?"Uh, we checked the receipts".-Bill Hicks
TehBoognish: make youtube vid of fake chemical attack, hilarity Hillary ensues?
CruiserTwelve: I don't care, as long as we get into the round robin.
CigaretteSmokingMan: Funny how it's still OK to kill people with bombs and bullets.

internut scholar: Don't bring chemicals to a nuke fight.
Nightsweat: Remember this is the president who said he'd go into Pakistan to whack bin Laden if necessary even without their permission and did it.I don't hink I'd piss this guy off. He's no Internet tough guy.
Hydra: So killing each other with bullets, fire, and bombs is still okay. Got it.
CigaretteSmokingMan: Damn you Hydra!
Holocaust Agnostic: WMDs are a special case. Unless and until they her used, the World Police should keep their noses out. Syrians, and no on else, have the right to settle the matter of governance in Syria.
StopLurkListen: On battlefields with only uniformed combatants facing each other, often you have over a hundred bullets fired for each combat death. Shooting is about the most discriminatory form of war we have.Weapons of mass destruction are not discriminatory. In fact, soldiers are less vulnerable than civilians, due to training and equipment ( gas masks etc)
Hydra: CigaretteSmokingMan: Damn you Hydra!Just a little faster on the draw there. :)Holocaust Agnostic: WMDs are a special case. Unless and until they her used, the World Police should keep their noses out. Syrians, and no on else, have the right to settle the matter of governance in Syria.Why does that make it a special case? "You can only kill each other in the 'nice' ways that we approve of; otherwise, we'll send you a letter telling you how we don't approve." That's stupid. It shouldn't be HOW they're killing each other that's important but that they're killing each other at all.Keep in mind that I'm not even advocating for the US or anyone else to get involved here. I'm just addressing the inconsistency of denouncing and possibly intervening in the event of WMDs being used, but standing by and doing nothing while rows of tanks roll over people instead./considering the ties Assad's regime has to the Chinese and Russians and the ties the Syrian rebels have to the CIA, the Syrian people are really the lowest group in the pecking order who are actually involved in anything here//aside from greasing the treads of Assad's tanks with their blood, of course
keenerb: If Syria does use chemical weapons, i hope they stamp a big "Made in Iraq" marker on the side.
ArkPanda: Look at it this way: chemical weapons are so nasty that neither Hitler nor Stalin wanted to go there.
