    So for those that are criticizing Obama, what would you like him to do about this?

    Spend money? Obama would love that. Spend American lives? Not so much.

    1) Get an accurate account of what the Syrian chemical & biological weapons stockpiles are, what has been used, the locations of where they are being stored.
    2) Organize an assault force capable of attacking and securing all remaining chemical & biological weapons stockpiles.
    3) Use then withdraw said assault force with all chemical & biological weapons stockpiles able to be retrieved.
    4) Let the rebels and regime fight it out until one side or the other surrenders.
    5) No nation building, no compensation for collateral damage and no "we are sorry" $$.

    I think it would be darn near impossible to get all of them accounted for. Especially in the middle of a war. We couldn't even account for Saddam's and everybody knew he had the capability of chemical weapons (he'd used them in the past after all).

    Can you come up with something doable?

    You have not made one post on this subject that is not a defense of obama. You obama worshipers seem to think he is the center of the universe.

    Is this an additional caving on the missile defense shield, over an above his caving in his first term?

    Don't be surprised if much of Syria's stockpile of chemical and biological weapons found their way into Syria from Saddam's Iraq prior to the lead up to the second US invasion of Iraq. Weapons of all sorts are at this moment flooding into Syria from/through Iraq.

    Re: Poison gas missile strike in Syria

    Chemical weapons expert and chief operating officer of SecureBio, Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, told CBSNews.com that based on video he had seen of victims in Aleppo hospitals, the symptoms were "not really those that are identified with nerve agents or mustard gas, which are the ones most likely to be used" inside Syria.

    Bretton-Gordon noted that none of the people in the hospitals treating the attack victims were wearing protective clothing. If a chemical agent had been dispersed, he said, anybody coming into contact with the victims would also be affected; "doctors treating them would be overcome."

    As for the reports of a chlorine smell near the scene of the attack, Bretton-Gordon said conventional high explosives can also produce an odor which might be mistaken for chlorine, and that actual weapons using the common household chemical haven't been used since World War I. He noted that mustard gas -- which Syria is known to have stockpiled -- can produce a chlorine-like odor, but there was no indication from the images he had seen that the devastating chemical agent had been used in Aleppo on Tuesday.
