I appreciate you posting this article, though I think you are getting ahead of yourself.
The attck is coming-probably within 24-49 hbours
I did not get indication of this from article. What i took from it however, is that a immediate response will be the result if these weapons are used.
IMMEDIATE response. That means things are in place RIGHT NOW to act. No buidlup or days or weeks needed. This thing can pop at any second. The US, Israel, Turkey and Jordan have coordinated plans in place.
From the article, it makes note of the preparations underway in light of intelligence claiming the mobilization of these chemical weapons. Thus far, there is no indication that these weapons have been used, therefore no response can be expected at this point.
If these weapons are used, we can expect a quick response from the international community.
People tend to get ahead of themselves with this kind of stuff. The situation is certainly tenuous, but either side has not made any decision yet. Precaution is how i see this.
