They say it was Assad, but the rule is, the one who smelt it, dealt it.

spawn73: But tear gas is not forbidden to use under international law.

That might explain the weepy flower we've been hearing about.

Tatterdemalian: tkwasny: Those WMDs that never existed in Iraq in 2004, that were watched by bird (SAT) be transported into Syria in 11 RUSSIAN trucks were not used in this and all other previous WMD incidents.

You would think Obama would use his NSA spy network to determine who supplied Syria with these WMDs and at least demand sanctions against them in a closed UN session. The fact that he won't seems to indicate revealing the true source of Syria's WMDs would be too politically damaging to him to even suggest it.

/and probably damaging to the mental health of the "Saddam had no WMDs!" crowd that forms his core political constituency.
//hey, maybe they didn't come from Saddam after all... maybe we shipped them to Syria to "prove" Assad wouldn't use them, and provide a balance to Israeli nukes after they destroyed Assad's reactor
///sort of like those guns we shipped to Mexican drug lords, to "prove" that they have no problem acquiring such dangerous weapons as long as the US continues to make them

Holy shiat you don't see many of these in the wild. I think we've got an actual real life "Saddam DID have WMD and shipped them to Syria".

farking awesomeness.

Funny that we invaded Iraq for WMDs, which didn't exist, yes we won't bother when we actually know of overt nerve gas/WMD use.

Something-something oil in Iraq, gotcha.
