The real question is who really used the chemical weapons -- ask who benefits, it certainly not the Syrian government. They may be "evil", but I don't think they are stupid. On the other hand, I can certainly believe that Al Qaeda is willing to kill their own people or innocent people to achieve their objectives - to goad the US into this war on the side of Al Qaeda.

Sources: Al Qaeda-linked group behind Benghazi attack trains jihadists for Syrian rebel groups

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/08/28/sources-al-qaeda-linked-group-behind-benghazi-attack-trains-jihadists-for/

“U.S. intelligence agencies earlier this month uncovered new evidence that al Qaeda-linked terrorists in Benghazi are training foreign jihadists to fight with Syria’s Islamist rebels, according to U.S. officials.

Ansar al-Sharia, the al Qaeda-affiliated militia that U.S. officials say orchestrated the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound and a CIA facility in Benghazi, is running several training camps for jihadists in Benghazi and nearby Darnah, another port city further east, said officials who discussed some details of the camps on condition of anonymity.

The officials said the terror training camps have been in operation since at least May and are part of a network that funnels foreign fighters to Syrian rebel groups, including the Al-Nusra Front, the most organized of the Islamist rebel groups fighting the Bashar al-Assad regime in Damascus. “

Let’s go help Al Qaedea... (/sarc)

 Faisal Mekdad said terrorism would flourish everywhere if the US attacked Syria

That's what Obama's hoping.

Any American “limited strike” is a declaration of war and will involve the US in a much wider bloody conflict. Iran and Syria have said they will attack Israel if the US intervenes. Also it is not for nothing that Iran has been aiding Syria. Hidden in all that aid the Iranians have positioned state of the art short range missile manned by Revolutionary Guards at forward Syrian locations. Check! Until those batteries are pinpoint located and destroyed they are a grave threat to Israel especially if Israel decides it is necessary to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities. Obama and Kerry are in way over their heads.

Standing with Sarah is the only place to stand though ... Am concrete, in standing with Sarah, even though we’re danged for not going. Should we go ... we’ll need to kill all the moslems in every nation and our nation has not come to that full realization yet. So we’ll be danged either way. Physics normally cannot be proved wrong. There are cracks but action then reaction is solid (imho).

Unassailable logic:

"Any attack against Syria is support for al-Qaeda and its affiliates, whether Jabat al-Nusra or the State of Islam in Syria and Iraq."

The Destruction of Western Civilization is the goal of Islam and Socialism, so 0bama wins by empowering al Qaeda.
