The Islamist rebels gained control over nerve gas and it's turned up in Turkey.
Intervening on their behalf is like a starving man eating his own arm.
The question is...Have the Islamists gained control of anything? Sarin is one of those Chemical Weapons that, unlike VX, can be made in anyone's
bathroom with a well educated and stocked trip to a couple big box stores for the proper supplies. (A death wish is probably helpful too...since dying
of your own stuff is the likely outcome..but I digress).
The rebels used chemical weapons they created in a film they made and they released when they killed rabbits for the world to see. The rebels have
been found with chemical weapons in Turkey with the apparent intent to use them inside Turkey. False Flag? A real one for a change? Possibly....and
from Rebel hands. Al Qaeda in Iraq, who has openly and publicly declared themselves to be aligned with the rebels, was caught with bathtub chem
weapons in Baghdad as well as remote control aircraft to help spread them with. Clever bit on that last part....and scary if more think of it to
The only one I haven't seen any use or evidence of use out of yet is Assad and the Syrian Government. When THEY decide to use a Chemical Weapon...the
bodies will need collection with a bulldozer, similar to Haditha, Iraq when Saddam gassed the Kurds, Rebels and Misfits make Chem Weapons that kill a
few people and require extensive testing to even be sure. Nation States have the versions to kill entire villages or parts of a city at one time.
If Assad uses a Chemical Weapon, the only testing that will need to be done is determining whether western countermeasures will be effective against
it in the future, IMO. He'll be killing himself when he does it...so he'll make it count big time if/when he lets that genie out of it's ugly
