Syria has declared four chemical weapons facilities it hadn't mentioned before, a special representative of the UN secretary-general told the Security Council on Tuesday. The revelation heightened concerns that the Syrian government has not been fully open about its chemical weapons program. UN's @SigridKaag said 4 facilities identified that regime failed to declare. Must keep pressure on regime so it doesn't hide CW capability. — Samantha Power (@AmbassadorPower) October 7, 2014 Diplomats said Sigrid Kaag, the special envoy overseeing destruction of Syria's chemical stockpiles, told them during closed consultations that three of the facilities are for research and development and one is for production, and that no new chemical agents have been associated with the four sites.

Let Russia help out their 'Pal' Assad.
Oh wait, they might just annex the joint.
That in itself is a good enough reason to invade Syria , but with I.S. gaining ground all over Syria

The United States has one of the biggest chemical weapons stockpiles on the planet. Why haven't they been destroyed yet instead of mothballed?
Where is the uproar?

Are you forgetting that it was the anti-Assad rebels that used chemical weapons already ? They had access to them before and probably still do . a reply to: rigel4
I don't buy that anyway.. As far as I'm concerned it was Assad who
used the chem weapons.
Haven't you noticed how quiet Iran has been for the last year or so?
