"Suspected" Chemical Weapon use in Syria

We'll be expected to knock up a dodgy dossier? The guy who authors it will be found dead?

No, it's the other thing America goes to war for.


Their 'defense' industries need more profit.

Would Syria be MTP or desert Combat 95 country?

If we speak nicely to the Iranians maybe they'd let us re deploy out kit from Helmad to Syria overland.

Cynical Me thinks that the Yanks have egg all over their faces because two Dagestanis reamed their arses last week. To stop everybody else taking the piss US intelligence is almost definitely certain that maybe somebody used a WMD in Syria. Since last week's teenage terrorist has been charged with using a WMD, this means that somebody in Damascus threw a smoke grenade or used a tin of fly spray. In any case SEF will be deployed very shortly to secure the Syrian oil fields

Latest intelligence reports indicate several residents of Aleppo have a "bit of a cough" other reports speak of higher than average sales of Fishermans friends.
Opposition fighters are getting their mums to knit private Pike scarves just in case.

It means someone in Syria has got a pressure cooker and can use it properly - not putting a fragmentation bomb inside it...

Interesting. It would appear that the make-up department of 'casualty' could pursuade the US to invade a country.

Surely not suggesting that the US would do something like use a flimsy and possibly overcooked excuse in order to invade somewhere? That would just be crazy.

The diplomatic speak is interesting.
Obama nailed his colours to the mast months ago, by putting chemical use as the 'red line' after which the USA would take unspecified actions.
What you now have is various players in the US trying to keep this as grey as possible- 'Suspicion' 'Probability' but definitely NOT saying 'Conclusive'.
That's not for the Syrian benefit-It's to delay the dreadful day when Obama has to make a decision one way or the other. -Support the regime that gases people (just like the demonic Saddam did) or the side now filling up with AQ wannabes. Decisions, decisions.

If wmd are being used i think you will find isreal jumping into there garden to sort it out a long time before obama.
Nothing happens like that without the israelis knowing about it, like a certain syrian convoy getting plastered by israeli jets a few months ago
