Thread Name: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Subject: RE: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Somehow, I don't think we are addressing the subject of this thread with sufficient gravity.

We could be looking at the start of the last war on planet Earth and you argue about "human rights"......I suppose that's par for the course.

The rhetoric is almost exactly the same as the lead up to Iraq, but the stakes are many times higher.

Teribus...munitions experts on BBC have just said that missile attacks on chemical warfare stores are unlikely, as they would be extremely risky due to "wind drift" of vaporised chemicals, which could kill thousands of civilians.
This would reinforce my guess that last week's "chemical attack" by the regime, was possibly an "accident",
This view is certainly more plausible than a deliberate attack by Mr Assad's regime on non-combatants, at a time when they appear to be winning by conventional means?
