Western countries, including Britain, are planning to take unilateral military action against the Assad regime within two weeks in retaliation for its alleged use of chemical weapons on civilians in Syria.

Syria chose to take it to the next level. If they were really innocent in all of this then they wouldn't have let the UN sit around for a week when it would make the most sense to allow the inspectors to prove it was the rebels if that were the case. Seems to me this is what Assad wanted, why shouldn't he pay the price?
