I agree. Assad has been winning the war recently. He would not have initiated such an attack, especially just when the EU inspectors arrived on the scene. This looks be an example of rebel staging and disinformation. If children were indeed killed, then they were probably killed by the rebels.
You must ask yourself, who stands to benefit by such an atrocity? Only the rebels. They are attempting to draw in active US support, something BHO wants to do but needs a casus belli. This is the rather obvious attempt to provide it.

Thank you, “logi/cal869.” I agree. Today in Syria, it's 97 degrees. I see pictures of rows of “dead” people wrapped in white plastic bags with faces and feet exposed, thus the bags are not airtight. I would expect that the odor of rotting flesh would be unpleasant, yet the onlookers appear not to notice. Also, I would not expect the faces of adults and children to be in perfect order: eyes and mouth completely closed and expressions peaceful. It is claimed that these people died in agony, but these photos seem to tell another story. I think I became very wary of Syrian rebel stories when I saw a TV news spot in which a rebel shouted, “ They're killing people! Get the photographers!” Odd.
