    Russia doesn't want us bombing Syria either. They might be backing Assad, but that doesn't mean they want him using chemical weapons.

    There's no downside for Assad to give them up. If he does, and agrees to UN supervision of them or even their destruction, if any are used again it wouldn't be by him.

    Which would give him even more credibility and make the rebels look unbelievably bad.

    Assad has plenty of ways to kill people. Nobody is asking him to give up his air or heavy artillery.
