  •  Once again, CW are a PRETEXT for war (0+ / 0-)

    There's no reason why the use of CW to kill civilians should prompt action when no action was taken when civilians were killed by other means.

    The US itself kills civilians and children with drone strikes and turns a blind eye to the murder of civilians in other parts of the world.

    The US has a history of ignoring use of CW in some situations and even using CW itself in Iraq in violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention.

    The US position is hypocritical. It's also potentially catastrophic. The proposed strike has enormous capability for unintended consequences once shells begin flying from multiple sources into an area where hostile nations are clustered closely together. Unintended consequences that could expand the attack into a far larger conflagration.
