I heard it was Sarin on the BBC this morning...
But I agree, what possible benefit would this have gained the Syrian Government, if they did do it it was bloody stupid. I have actually been won
round, to an extent, by their claims the rebels are jihadi's as it would appear that a good segment of them are. I'd rather a secular Assad
Government in Syria than a bunch of Islamist nutjobs.
Assad was, in the near past anyway, quite "pro-West".. He didn't rock the boat and was open to a certain amount of reforms, as well as making sure
the many different religions and ethnicities in Syria were all respected. If the rebels win, I am quite sure we'd see the Islamists take over Syria.
There are secular rebels in the FSA, but they are losing out to the better funded jihadi's like Al Nusra. It is something the FSA was warning the
West about 12+ months ago, that without proper support, the Islamists would win and there would be no democracy.
