Assad is trying desperately to survive and has his hands full with an ongoing sectarian conflict. He is not going to launch what could only amount to suicidal endeavors. As a result, Syria poses no imminent threat to Jordan or Israel. Also considering a lack of critical U.S. interests in the outcome of the Syrian civil war, I don't support U.S. military action in Syria. That's my opinion.
    Since the Brits and the Francs are alreaby backing down and Obama will most likley back down, Assad doesn't have any reason to believe that he has anything fear from the western allies.

    Thanks to Russia and China keeping up pressure, they may yet rout the US on this wildly unpopular adventure.

    I like the part where illegal weapons are clearly marked for ownership. Somehow I doubt nerve agents have labels like that on them for use in a civil war that has the world watching.

    I'd be tempted to label my crap to look like the OTHER guy made it! the idea of grunts using nerve agent as a close combat weapon seems very far fetched.

    Starting to look like Obama is going to do this alone.
    I think we are about to know for sure in about 45 minutes.

    Montecresto is a bully who stole my lunch money and then made me do his homework for him...

    Associated Press reporter Dale Gavlak is reporting that Syrian rebels, armed with chemical agents from Saudi Arabia, were responsible for the August 21st Chemical weapons attack. Gavlak has also written for the BBC, Salon, and others.

    Then after a really quick google search I also found DALE GAVLAK - The Big Story - Associated Press

    Your turn. So... where do you get your assertion from? Or is it some other Gavlak?

    Is France also changing it's mind on this? I cannot imagine Congress giving a thumbs up after UK, France, and Italy all stepped back. This will definitely embolden Assad and Iran IMHO. It's gonna suck to be living in Syria soon. It already does; but you know what I mean.

    Iran's president...

    In a series of comments on Twitter over the past 24 hours, Iranís new president said Iranian officials "completely and strongly condemn the use of chemical weapons in Syria," and urged the United Nations to "use all its might" to prevent more attacks.
