French lab confirms sarin use in Syria.

#3
Laurent Fabius said lab tests in Paris confirmed usage of the nerve agent, adding that those who resort to chemical weapons must be punished.
You can shell civvies, butcher them, execute prisoners, torture, rape, pillage and basically do whatever you like... so long as you don't use chemical weapons.


Never quite understood that viewpoint, personally.

I've come over all faint, has Assad "gassed his own people"? He was meant to be a nice man who was just killing them by the tens thousand with tube artillery.

I give it three hours before that creature that fell out of the abortion bucket "Domovoy" appears and starts to bash his keyboard until something that looks like words appears.

The Ffrench use dogs to test for nerve agent now?

I'm interested only in so far as it may cause changes in British foreign policy, the Syrians can exchange the stuff by the ton as far as I'm concerned.

Allow me to post for her - the sarin was actually used by MI6 in order to justify British government sales of weapons to the rebels in return for oil reserves known to be under Aleppo. There is no proof that Russian weapons have been used in Syria against the rebels and the multiple photos and reports are part of a clever plot to discredit Putin.

The Israelis seem likeminded and are starting to express preferences for the rather passive part Assad has played in the "Resistance Block" over something more bearded and boisterous So Foggy Bottom probably won't give a toss and therefore neither the FO.

Isn't this the Basingstoke Joker? How exactly are Israel going to respond?

If it was the Government who used it and Assad thinks he is on his last legs and about to be deposed (what the point in him running after what happened to Gadaffi) he may be tempted to stick some on top of a missile and lob it at Tel Aviv.

He might be tempted to dance a tango with a unicycle riding orang-utan as well.
But he wont.

Why on earth would he offend the Israelis, they are his best insurance policy.

Assad's response to the last Israeli attack was to say, OK next time you dis my palace I stop policing the border on the Golan and you can deal with the all these angry Beards that are giving my posse gyp directly. Buggers reckon they'll have Sharia restored over al Quds faster than an Iranian President can wipe you from the pages of history. Cue futile suicide attacks, copious use of cluster munitions and Kerry rushing to Damascus like he's got a jet ski up his over privileged arse. Cut, that's a wrap.

It's high time that Britain used this evidence as the justification for helping replace one shit regime with an even shitter one

It's what we do.

Just flog the other side enough weapons to keep both sides going at it.
