Obviously, it don't sound good. Hopefully it was an isolated incident. Looks like our Army is in process of sending a number of units to various African countries.
Things could really heat up fast. I for one don't want to hear about US forces having to go into Syria, as been suggested by this administration.

It just doesn’t make sense to me.

I am not saying it didn’t happen, just that it doesn’t make sense.

If you are going to set yourself up for an accusation of using gas, why would you use it in such a limited way.
If this was military gas certainly the shell would have held mush more gas than this.

I am often wrong but it appears to me that the people using the gas were the rebals and they are using it to bring other coun tires into this fight with Assad. It looks like a frame up to me.

I cannot speak for Assad, it would seem to me that if he were going to take the rap for using gas he would use it to wipe clean the whole mess of them.

The video could be a lot of things besides what they say are Doctor treating gas victims.

Not sure we can trust Al Jazeera to report this. The emir of Qatar owns Al Jazeera and he also has been providing support to the Salafist Jihadis fighting against Assad in Syria...

I’m no expert but that video doesn’t seem to show a victim of Sarin. I have seen guys in worse shape coming out of the “gas chamber” in the Marine Corps from CS Tear Gas.

What a shame. Muslims really need to stop fighting each other and everybody else. We don’t need to get involved. The only country in the ME to protect is Israel. Case closed.

The chronology of events over the weekend went like this.

Russians and Chinese claim Syria has all its WMD under control and safe.

Iran claimed a report from Syria stated that 7 Syrian military professionals were attacked by gas from rebels.

Israel claimed Syria has all its WMD under control.

Rebels claim Syrian gas attack in Homs.

So this is how WWIII breaks out ?

there have been tons of claims by the rebels that in spite of many other claims have provem to be umverified and without facts that anyone has been able to verify

American public needs to be converned about the use of false claims about Assad and WMD use as excuses for deeper U.S. intervention

intervention that will be, no matter how bad Assad is, in the interest of the MB in Syria and their radical Wahabi-Sunni backers, not in our interest
