I believe Assad is to smart to even think about using these weapons. He has most Syrians behind him. Have you seen some of the pro Assad rallies in Syria. They are huge.
But as for the Al Queda rebels. I would not trust them at all. They are animals. Know they are worse than animals. I say Russia should go in there and weed them out for Assad. Then we will trulley know there origins.
About time for Putin to live up to his name. Bear.
The United States and some European allies are using defense contractors to train Syrian rebels on how to secure chemical weapons stockpiles in Syria, a senior U.S. official and several senior diplomats told CNN Sunday.
The training, which is taking place in Jordan and Turkey, involves how to monitor and secure stockpiles and handle weapons sites and materials, according to the sources. Some of the contractors are on the ground in Syria working with the rebels to monitor some of the sites, according to one of the officials.
