Subject: RE: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
I rather imagine there are a lot of people who would do that if they could.

But as the CIA demonstrated in the case of Fidel Castro over the years, it's not that easy. They are estimated to have made some 638 attempts...

Whether it would do a scintilla of good in the case of Assad is pretty questionable. I suppose it could make it easier for people to cut a facesaving deal with his lieutenants.
