    Russia to show "evidence" of chemical weapons used by Syrian rebels

    MOSCOW: Russia will show the UN security council evidence it has received from Syria's government pointing to the use of chemical weapons by rebels in the Damascus suburbs, Russian news agencies quoted foreign minister Sergei Lavrov as saying on Wednesday.

    Lavrov, who has said a report by UN investigators did not dispel Russia's suspicions that rebels were behind an August 21 poison gas attack, spoke after one of his deputies was given unspecified evidence by the government while visiting Syria.

    It is rumoured to be video footage

    Why is evidence in quotation marks? Are we already judging it before we even see it, hmm?

    Syrian officials supplied the evidence, which Mr Lavrov has not yet seen.

    The really sad part is I trust Putin as much or more than Obama.

    The Times of India put it in quotations so who can know what that means.

    From your link.

    The UN report did not apportion blame for the attack, which sparked diplomacy that culminated in a deal for Syria to hand over its chemical arsenal by mid-2014.

    Obama's intention to strike did that.

    It's a good thing that the US didn't strike. I know you disagree.

    I agree. We want a list of locations and Russian security (perhaps international as well) before Assad falls. That's much better than chasing down keys to chems after the crap hits the fan. I'm a hawk, and I'm wanting to wait a week to get that info. I expect Assad is negotiating for asylum in an African or Mideast country. He bought time to do that by allowing international control of the locations. If Assad leaves Syria, a transitional democratic government could be assembled with the help of the UN without direct Western military intervention.
