    himself or a member of his regime that ordered the poison gas attacks. Children are dead either way and action must be taken to prevent more deaths.

    Obama was on target (figuratively and literally) when he proposed sending guided missiles to destroy the missile launch sites to prevent a reoccurrence of this barbaric act. Limited, controlled, directed at army bases and not civilians, destroying launch sites is the appropriate response.

      will be on infrastructure because the delivery devices for these crude homemade gas rockets are simple metal tubes loaded on the back of small trucks, of the type that both the military and the opposition are known to use.  

      There is no Cape Kennedy complex in Syria form which these things were launched that cruise missiles might have any effect on.  

      In fact, "Limited air-strikes" is just another term for imposing a no-fly zone, as most targets wil be the Syrian Air Force and air defense system.
