Thread Name: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Subject: RE: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Military intervention has historically never worked to eradicate any weaponry.
In fact, it generally increases its use. Exponentially.

World War II lead to the development of nuclear weapons prominently featured in
the later "Cold War" with the Soviet Union. Hitler's "secret weapon" was discussed
at the close of the World War.

The only reasonable invention must be made by outlawing all weapons of war,
not excepting any one of them and adopting diplomacy instead.

You can't stop a fire by starting a blaze. Even back fires of containment will not stop fire from spreading in other places.

World War I was supposed to be "the war to end all wars". How did that work out?
