Capo Del Bandito: I thought it was common knowledge they've been hitting rebels and civil unrest with simple mustard gas and worse for the last...3? 5 years? Something along those lines.
Sentient: Somebody remind them of that Red Line thing. That should do it.
Capo Del Bandito: spawn73: citation?What i'm going to go dig up news articles from 2011? fark that noise.I just remember reading about it, and then the official government statement was 'what chemical weapons would we use? That's proposterous' and then a UN said something and they said 'prove it' and so on and so on.Hell there was even a joke on The Oatmeal about it a while back if I remember right.
fusillade762: Maybe someone was just cleaning their pool?
SquiggsIN: Can the war-mongerers here on fark explain to me why it is that the USA should give 2 flips about what is going on in Syria?/no nevermind, they actually think there is a reason to care and will attempt to prove it
TheZorker: SquiggsIN: Can the war-mongerers here on fark explain to me why it is that the USA should give 2 flips about what is going on in Syria?/no nevermind, they actually think there is a reason to care and will attempt to prove itMainly, it's to set an example to Iran to knock off trying to make Nukes.
DontMakeMeComeBackThere: Sentient: Somebody remind them of that Red Line thing. That should do it.Be sure to tell them it's a "Hard" red line this time. Works every time, I hear.
codigo: Quick let's block a few Syrians from entering the U.S.That will make them think twice.
subsetzero: The pantywaist president and his incompetent secretary of state should stage an unbelievably small retaliatory action.
Persnickety: SquiggsIN: Can the war-mongerers here on fark explain to me why it is that the USA should give 2 flips about what is going on in Syria?/no nevermind, they actually think there is a reason to care and will attempt to prove itBecause Obama is weak on terrorists or something like that.
Gyrfalcon: It's easy to dispose of chemical weapons. It's also easy to manufacture them. Otoh:Psaki said chlorine was not one of the priority one or two chemicals Syria declared to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) under a Russian-U.S. agreement for the destruction of Syria's chemical weapons stockpile.so there you go. And I think we're all STILL waiting for some kind of definitive response from the "Obama should DO something!" crowd besides "anything except what he's doing! Oh, and not war. And not diplomacy. But not bombing, but more than not bombing. Just, you know, something!" That's horseshiat.
voristrupp: Assad had way more than he ever needed. He can dispose of 80% of it and still have enough to hold damascus.What is scary is if al q has figured out to make large quantities of weapons grade sarin.
SquiggsIN: I'll maintain that getting involved in another sectarian war in the middle east isn't what's best for the USA or ANY NATO nation. Iraq is still a mess and how many billions have we wasted there? Afghanistan too. The lines are drawn on a map around people that inherently dislike each other. No amount of money/troops/intervention is going to change that.
MyRandomName: Why should we care about the Balkan states was a common utterance a century ago. Thank god nothing bad happened by ignoring that.
