    some data (good) and based on that conclude that Assad may not have approved the attacks.

    That does not mean that no one else might have collected more data that tends toward a different conclusion. The Germans do not purport to have proof that Assad didn't order the attacks, after all.

    The German version may account for why Assad is willing to have his weapons taken away, though - he's losing control over them.

    Question: if you're a dictator - and members of your military have gone over to the rebels - and now members of your military are using chemical weapons without permission: What is the fastest, easiest way to kill a well-protected dictator in a fortified palace?

    Yeah. Bashir has to wonder, at least a little, if he's next.

      even where the CW came from, ask yourself who is jumping up and down crying for bombs? Hint; starts with I.

      Look, all the military players in the Middle East are suspect, until some solid evidence can be brought forward.

      A true craftsman will meticulously construct the apparatus of his own demise.
