“The convoys were ferrying self-propelled cannons for firing shells loaded with poisonous sarin gas.”
I never realized that gas shells were fired from special cannons. All the normal arty is 155mm, but the gas shells are all special 160mm shells that only work in special chemical cannons!/ How stupid. Tubes are tubes. If SP155 is driving down the road, it’s no more dedicated to gas than it is to any other round in their inventory.
And why should a single Marine fight there? Even if they shoot gas at each other. If Assad wins, we have Assad. If the rebels win, we get another wahabbi extremist like Morsi. Who freakin’ cares?
And actually, Assad is nominally better for the local christians.
“And actually, Assad is nominally better for the local christians.”
So were Saddam & Qaddafi (while Saudi - which doesn’t tolerate Christianity at all - is our main “ally”); see a pattern here?
