    But like others before me, I don't agree with the military option at all here until more is known..and 45 days is probably not enough time for all of that to be completed.

    And as others have stated, what makes you think the only CW use being done is only by Assad?

    Too many ways to for all the various rebel factions to exploit this (and our own CIA who is funding them) and are we even certain that this one attack was even Assad. Show me the absolute proof.

    The whole thing is let's let the UN do its job first and complete its findings.

    Still the threat of US military might knowing full well our govt leaders wants that now in the event of a CW attack still doesn't mean I want to get into another WAR in the Mideast. Too many unknowns with that that I certainly do NOT want my leaders to sign on now By signing on to this. No sir. Nope. Not willing to give them that right.

    Plus, we signatories to the ban and yet..well....Fallujah. We are signatories to many treaties as are others that are broken all the time and yet..sigh.

    I have learned the lessons of history.

    Government of, for, and by the wealthy corporate political ruling class elites. We are the 99%-OWS.
