    We did leave them a way out - but Assad declined to leave and turn over control to others.  In the event the regime launches its chemical or biological weapons, wouldn't US and allied forces in the region basically carpet bomb or otherwise utterly destroy the headquarters, offices and homes of every potential Assad family member, Assad regime member and Alawite sect power center?  

    Assad and his regime need to consider the following:  the civilized world may want to make an example - for Iran and North Korea and others - of what VERY, VERY BAD THINGS HAPPEN to countries, regimes and persons who use chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction.  They could bring mass destruction on themselves.  I doubt too many in the rest of the world would object - and the lesson would be directed at the regimes in Iran and North Korea.
