It seems to me if they have samples sufficient to confirm Sarin, they ought to be good enough to confirm quality? Syria has been producing chemical
weapons right out in front of God and Everybody for 30+ years. They're among the only nations in the world who has been, all this time. Since they
didn't sign the treaties, they are not prohibited from making them in that way. Most nations are because they did sign them.
Hence...A Syrian Government weapon should show a high level of quality and refinement for the agent being used. That kinda brings the question of why
Sarin in the first place, since Assad has such crowd pleasers as VX Gas, but I digress in trying to war game anyone's thinking.
The world saw Sarin in Tokyo though with the terrorist attack on the Subway there. Chemical weapons have now been found among rebels in Turkey as well
as supporters in the Iraqi arm of Al Qaeda within recent days. Perhaps some notes need compared to see if there is a winner for a match?
I'd say whoever used it though, whichever side it turns out to be, the proof of that needs to be SOLID. Once it's in hand though? There IS NO
comparison to "the other side is bad too". Nerve Gas is Nerve Gas and it's a poor man's nuclear weapon when it comes right down to it. No excuses,
no relative comparisons. Whoever did it, should fry hard for it as an example to anyone else in the world who would consider using such a thing in the
future. Assad or the Rebels. Identity shouldn't matter one bit for outcome, once proof is in hand and at a level accepted by the international
community. (I believe Russia wanted confirmation of this too... A reasonable check for accuracy, I think)
If that isn't done? It just invites more use of this evil crap against the least deserving in the world. Civilians, for the most part.
