It's just breaking on Press tv that the second UNSC meeting has ended without progress, Russia calling attack on Syria a challenge to the UN Charter. Basically the door would be open for any leader to manipulate the UN articles to justify military intervention on the basis of humanitarian intervention.

Rest is for cool head and moral minds to figure out. Assad should understand that 20 years after the fall of communism, the Socialist Dictatorship model has little place in normal human societies. He should conduct free and fair elections in 2014 and let the winner take to power. If he feels in danger, then pack up and go to Russia or Belarus or Cuba or whereever he is granted asylum.

Would you want to admit that such weapons were being produced if you wanted to claim them?
The US, UK, EU etc wouldn't be able to openly admit that to its people without inciting full blown panic, even hinting that you were going to simply destroy it would not really help as there will always be the chance that you need them or that it will be uncovered.
I don't know what's inciting more panic, US going it alone in a war or bio weapons being produced. At this stage I have a very queasy feeling in my stomach and that's without any drugs. I can feel the anxiety of the world worrying about this situation and it looks like no option is good. Again I can see the arguments on both sides of this debate and it makes more sense that there is more going on then the public are being told.
