Let's see he has seen what happened to all the leaders of countries during this "Arab" spring. Do you really think he gives a rats behind on what would happen if he used the weapons? His fate has been sealed already. Now it's how he wants to go out, with a fight or drug through the streets behind a Toyota.

As NATO in Brussels gave the go-ahead Tuesday night, Dec. 4, for the deployment of Patriot surface-to-air missiles to protect Turkey against Syrian missiles, DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources reported that convoys of the Syrian army’s chemical weapons units headed out of Damascus under cover of dark and turned north up the road to Aleppo. Their destination is not yet known.
If this is true, UH-OH!

He may as well just hand himself into to the ICC before he gets killed.

I'm curious, did Assad (or his Generals) order this move after the U.S. warning or before? Because if he ordered this after the U.S. explicitly warned him that we would commence military action, I truly have to question either the sanity of Assad, the sanity of his military leadership, or the report itself. I don't quite understand why Assad would make such a risky move, knowing what it would portend. I know he is a dictator, but he can't possibly be this out of touch with reality--can he? Then again, he could just just be moving them around to get them out of sight, but still...where does he think he's going to hide them? The decision that world leaders make these days just continue to puzzle me.

There is nothing more vile than chemical weapons. War is stupid enough, but to torture, then kill your enemy is inhuman. Anyone who understands how these work and the kind of sick disgusting ways you will die, knows that no person with a shred of humanity in them, could ever use such a horrid weapon. Those who use them should be tried for war crimes and the act of using them should be outlawed worldwide. Yea, I have an opinion about it.
