Foreign Secretary William Hague condemned the Assad regime, stating that “all the evidence points in one direction.”
"We cannot, in the 21st century, allow the idea that chemical weapons can be used with impunity, that people can be killed in this way, and there are no consequences for it," he said.
Branding Assad a dictator, Hague stressed a “strong response” was essential in light of the use of chemical weapons to “slaughter” Syrian citizens.
Syrian President Bashar Assad responded to the calls for an international reaction to the chemical attack, warning that any international intervention in Syria would end in failure.
"The comments [accusing the regime of using chemical weapons] made by politicians in the West and other countries are an insult to common sense... It is nonsense," Assad said, adding the accusations were completely “political.”

What happens if the US takes action without UN approval? Does this mean Russia will come to blows with us, or will it be another proxy war?

Snowden is a distraction, nothing more, let me ask you this.. Snowden did state is had enough information to cripple the US government beyond repair.
He made a deal with Russia, however Putin said he could stay if he stopped spreading bad stuff about America.
He claims he genuine, and he does it because the people need to be made aware, then sorry ***off then I couldn't care what happens to me, and I would release the info and not use it as a bluff.
He could have posted all his leaks on Pastebin and not a single soul could have stopped him. Heck he could have send thousands of e-mails with the files. One is bound to release the info.
He did Whistle, but no way in hell are his intentions noble and for the people.
