There is reason to believe that Zero through the MSM is using the chemical weapons scare as a way of inciting additional public opinion against Assad. Do we really know if the rag tag ‘resistance’ is making the significant inroads against Assad that we read about in the MSM? My belief is that this story line is trumped up BS to justify providing additional aid to Jihadist fighters. Do we really want another Egypt in the Middle East?
Who you gonna believe?
I would not put it past this Administration to arrange some kind of "Gulf of Tonkin" or U.S.S. Maine incident we all learn later was staged for various purposes,, to rile us up and get us committed in some direct way. Also, there are all KINDS of scoundrels worming their way into the Syrian opposition (I am not saying Assad is a saint here either), outright jihadists, salafists and Al Qaeda type, opposing Damascus. And we are going to get in bed with THEM???
Like I said, Debka vs. US Mass Media. Pick the most credible and that which would tell the truth to the people. What you say is entirely plausible, and they are just boosting up a force that is nowhere near seizing power in Damascus, and if they did, the US could still reap a mightly blowback just as we are now getting out of Cairo and at the UN (over Palestian observer status). There is a lot that stinks out there.
The inroads made are in direct proportion to the number of our "contractors" that are part of the rag tag 'resistance'.
