Next morning the NYT headlines "Assad Gas Bombs Syrian Civilians" as "fact". CNN picks it up and broadcasts it as "fact". The next day, tomahawk missles are fired at Syrian base.
There is no logical reason for a panic. If WW3 begins you are good as dead. ICBMs would be seen from all different parts of the world. WW3 means the end of us all. What's the point of ruling over a radiated rock in space? We work for them and believe it or not they need us alive. Besides there are way efficient ways to reduce the population. A manufactured biological virus,nanaobots in your bloodstream,poison,ordinance that leaves the infrastructure intact but kills all the humans and many more scenarios.

When an Islamic rule (theocracy) is involved then it does not matter who initiated the weapon(s) of mass distraction…all must be made to capitulate...
The region is too unstable and requires America to cut off every head of every snake and do what must be done…

If sanctions don't work I would be happy to dust off old stethoscope with my wife and we happily return...
Though I doubt my cats and child will agree ahah
I honestly think that the government thinks that the only way to fix the collapsing global economy is to have a war. WW2 had a more positive effect on the economy than "The new Deal" did, just think about it.

How could there be a gas attack when the Obama administration said that Syria didn't have any?
We were able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile.
