    chemicals, as long as you get an export license.

    And those licenses are denied only if it is shown or suspected that the dual use technology is indeed going to chemical weapons.  Flouride chemicals are used in everything from toothpaste to plastic.  There's no indication anywhere that any of the British chemicals were ever sold to any Syrian entity with any connection to chemical weapons. If there WAS any such indication, the license would have been denied.
