    Yes, and the Kurds gassed themselves in Iraq as well.

    This is incredibly naïve. Look back at what has happened in previous uprisings in Syria. Assad's father used chemical weapons in quelling the uprising in Hama back in 1981- 1982. Syria has long been among the worst countries in the world for engaging in indiscriminate killing of civilians and abuses of human rights.

    The use of chemical weapons by Assad is business as usual in Syria.

    Israel's use of white phosphorous was indeed just as bad.  Guess what? They stopped it - diplomacy worked. This is now the 3rd use of chemical weapons by Assad - that we know of - and there are no signs that he is going to stop without being forced to do so.

    Liberalism is trust of the people tempered by prudence. Conservatism is distrust of the people tempered by fear. ~William E. Gladstone, 1866
