    And I doubt they will by the way, but if they do, them I support a massive US airstrike to cripple their ability to fly the planes necessary to deliver the weapons.

    Chemical weapons are fuckimg evil, a blight agaimst humanity.

    The world must act against those that commit genocide or use WMDs...it is the moral act and will serve to stop others from using them in the future. Among the things that pisses me off about Bush, is that through his actions we can never again trust our government when they say WMDs were about to be used...we must now wait before we act.  

    But to be clear, if Assad uses sarin...I say send in the Air Force and blow his planes, missiles, command centers and the rest to bits.

        And,it was wrong...but that does make anyone else who does it right.  And as point of fact, all the European countries in   WWI used chemical weapons...leading to the Geneva,conventions.  Many have committed genocide moremrecentlymthan the US.

        Just because we did wrong in the past should not be used to argue against doing what is right in the present.
