    Britain and France are also joining Obama in warning Syria that the use — or threat — of chemical weapons is completely unacceptable.

    The warning should have come from the U.N.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Obama is bluffing. If Assad calls his bluff and uses chemical weapons, Obama wont "lead from behind" like he did in Libya, but will 'lead from beneath' his desk. But fear not, the moment things appear to be going our way, Obama will reappear and claim credit.

    You think I am wrong - fine. I admit I could well be - and I hope I am.

    But if I was going to call someone ludicrously paranoid, I would at least have some hard evidence to back it up.

    Assuming you do not have any, I guess you don't care about having hard evidence when you accuse/insult others.

    Noted.


    Have a nice day.
    Evidence that President Obama isn't concocting a plan to work with the rebels so they can acquire a chemical weapon from fortified Syrian stockpiles and then figure out a way to covertly and anonymously use them on a civilian target to inflict mass casualties so that the US can then have an artificial cassus belli to intervene? No I do not have that evidence, because it is a conspiracy theory of the first class.

    Because its a moral travesty, and because it sets the precedent of the utilization of weapons of mass destruction specifically chemical weapons on a conventional scale in the modern era. That is a bad thing.

    I say Obama should get another peace prize he's really been gang busters on peace. What's worse is I think Romney will be an even bigger Warmonger than Obama.
    No one is saying that the rebels are paragons of virtue. What people are saying is that Assad is the cause of this conflict as a direct result of his Baath party dictatorship, and that people are rising up to combat that oppression. Defeats in the field, frustration, and pent up anger easily explain the less than virtuous tactics of many Syrian militias. That being said its still pretty clear to me which side I'm on, and which side I want to win.

    How many have been killed there already? 15000--20,000? How is the method of death more morally repulsive if done by chemical weapons than by conventional ones? Apparently, Assad can slaughter at will and in any number just so long as he uses Obama-approved methods. That seems more the 'moral travesty' to me.

    It is a moral travesty already and we should intervene and the President has shown a total lack of leadership thus far. However it is fair to note that chemical weapons have been regarded by most of mankind has particularly heinous and unique weapons due to their ability to deal mass casualties in a quick manner and their sinister method of killing. That may be subjective, but what matters is that it is the perception.
