    This is evident from your characterization of the rebels as having "their own people."

    Have you not been reading about the real anatomy of the "rebels," right here on the Rec list? There's no such thing. It's really a bunch of disparate groups, many of them foreign insurgents and jihadists, some with al Qaeda ties, jockeying for power.

    You think al Qaeda would think twice about gassing some Syrians to frame Assad and get the NATO countries into the conflict, thereby helping their side?

    And do you really believe that Assad, who is not an idiot, or insane AFAIK, would "test" the one thing that he knows could ensure his defeat, even when he's clearly winning the war?
