Re: About this small-scale chemical weapons usage in Syria

One observation I would make in reading and writing about this on a regular basis is the coverage about the new intelligence, and our politicians reactions to it, resembles the media drumbeat that proceeded the Iraq invasion.

Chemical weapons notwithstanding, it's no wonder the US or other foreign powers seem uninterested in doing anything. Some of the rebel fighting groups like Al-Nusra Front are linked to al-Qaeda, with several others in the realm of islamic extremism. Even if the makeup of the rebel forces was not a complete clusterfuck, there aren't any consistently held rebel areas to stage forces and supplies like their were in Libya
