WASHINGTON — US officials: US concludes Assad used chemical weapons against Syrian opposition.

Breaking news! It's official the US has accused Assad of using chemical weapons so now we can expect NATO & no fly zones. It's okay for the rebels to use chemical weapons but not Assad...

I personally don't believe he used said weapons but what do I know...

I don't think that's what anyone is saying.

UN action will most likely prevent BOTH sides from using them.

Good luck! The Russian warships are all over the Syrian coastline. No fly zones have no chance in hell.

Hmmmmm, very interesting.

Bill Clinton calls out Obama for not wanting to get more involved with the situation in Syria.

It hasn't even been a day and Obama has now found a reason to get involved.

Oh brother, I hope we don't go to war because of a d!&k measuring contest.

Mind you that:

"There is no reliable evidence that Western-backed rebels in Syria have used chemical agents"

but

"Following a deliberative review, our intelligence community assesses that the Assad regime has used chemical weapons, including the nerve agent sarin, on a small scale against the opposition multiple times in the last year"

and

"Our intelligence community has high confidence in that assessment given multiple, independent streams of information."

No proof, just a lot of people saying a lot of things.

I know that's not what the UN is saying, that's what I'm saying. Time & time again the rebels have been accused (only after Assad was accused first) & found guilty of using chemical weapons yet the west continues to support them with monies and god knows what else. The very same rebels are also known terrorists. So it's okay if they use these weapons, the money will still flow (& weapons) but as soon as the US states Assad uses the weapons it's game over, here comes NATO, just like Libya. Assad, in my opinion, wouldn't use chemical weapons because he knows once he does the west will invade. Hell, Assad has been winning the war against these rebel/terrorists so why jeopardize that now with chemical weapons?

Or maybe the rebels/terrorists/west are framing Assad so the NATO invasion/bombing campaign can begin?

I don't believe Assad used chems either. Why? Because of G.W. Bush, we didn't find any WoMD in Iraq and the SCUD's Saddam did have were totally empty of chems. Wouldn't be the first time someone in the W.H. told lies to support his own private agenda, except this time that someone in the W.H. is embroiled in 5 scandals and he's desperately trying to get out of the spotlight and this rumor about Assad using chems is the perfect thing to get that spotlight off of him.

They purposely built a nuclear reactor on a fault line in the Ring of Fire. You tell me? I thought the japanese were supposed to be some of the smartest people in the world. I guess stupidity should be classified as a WoMD.
