Reports that Iran is sending chlorine bombs to Syria have prompted lawmakers to criticize the Obama administration for ignoring Irans non-nuclear efforts to foster terrorism and discord across the Middle East.
Western intelligence officials suspect that Iran has been sending Chinese-made chlorine gas to Syria in a bid to bolster President Bashar al-Assads war against opposition forces.
Iran reportedly has some 10,000 canisters of the deadly gas and has been shipping them by plane to Syria, according to the Telegraph.
Human rights groups and Syrian opposition leaders have said there is strong evidence that Assad has already used the chlorine gas to attack opposition forces in some Syrian towns.
Leading foreign policy figures on Capitol Hill told the Washington Free Beacon that Irans military support for Assad highlights the need for the United States to clamp down on Irans non-nuclear illicit actions.

Quick! Let’s draw a red line in the sand!
I think it’s just dandy when one Islamic group wipes out another Islamic group.
Seems to me that President Bashar al-Assad is probably the middle east leader least likely to go after Christians. (other than Israel of course)

I hope Assad only uses them slightly upwind of the Al Qeida Syrian Rebel buddies of McCain and Obama.

Maybe they have a lot of hot tubs they need to disinfect.
After all, goats and sheep really take a toll on the water quality...

Syria needs to have is ars wiped off the map. As long as we have King Obama, the communists black Muslim we are waiting for a chlorine bomb to hit the white house. Of course when it does King Obama will be golfing in Hawaii.
This administration will never criticize them. They are a regime that has declared its hatred for us, so naturally the administration will do everything they can to please them.

These people are behind the times. They should just do a hashtag or 2 to solve the problem.
