    UN report on Syria has been released

    I don't know if the mods would allow this but here it is, most of the news agencies haven't picket it up yet.
    http://www.un.org/disarmament/

    From the report:


    EDIT: It would be interesting to see how the different players react to this i.e US, Russia, France, Syria...


    Cheers,

    Well I don't think it's been a question of "IF" chemical weapons were used, only who used them. To that degree is where all the other countries have different versions.

    Agreed, and surely that was the point of the investigation to provide evidence of which side is responsible. No real point in going there otherwise.

    All they are saying is that chemical weapons HAVE been used. Which we knew they HAVE been used. The question is: who used them?

    Nobody can answer that question and there is no proof to suggest that the Assad regime was the one to use chemical weapons or the jihadists rebels did it.

    Actually no. The investigation was to determine if chemical weapons were used, not who used them.

    No, we already knew that Sarin was used, and we knew that the UN would not investigate WHO used it....So, the charade continues.

    Well this report could be just part of the findings. I haven't seen any other report that tries to connect the dots to "who" yet.

    From the little that you posted, there is no indication of either. I don't really expect a UN report to be reliable for proof of either, and if it did, I would be suspicious, as their track record for non-bias is dubious at best.

    The only countries arguing that the rebels did it are Russia, the Iranian regime and such. No western country has contested the US conclusion that Assad forces conducted the attack.
