This is the worst Chemical attack so far in the 21st century. 430 Children dead. Those Chemical weapons should be destroyed period.
On September 18, 2008, Congressman Boehner attended a closed meeting with congressional leaders, then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, and was urged to craft legislation to help financially troubled banks. That same day (trade effective the next day), Congressman Boehner cashed out of an equity mutual fund.
On October 3, 2008 Boehner voted in favor of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), believing that the enumerated powers grant Congress the authority to "purchase assets and equity from financial institutions in order to strengthen its financial sector."
As of December 2010, Cantor is the only Jewish Republican in the United States Congress
So I don't know what news he's listening to or -- but even a five year old child has to -- you know, with the wisdom of our interest has affected our interests or it affects our interests because, again, it was outside of the circle of civilized behavior. It was humanity drew a line decades ago that i think if we ignore, we do so to the peril of many other people who can suffer.
I expect better evidence than a phone conversation. Especially when the circumstantial evidence doesn't line up. It makes absolutely no sense for Assad to use these chemical agents exactly when investigators arrive in his country. Not only that, but also knowing that the leaders of the most powerful country have been looking for any little thing to militarily intervene into the events in Syria for at least the last couple of years.If Assad did in fact do this than he's bat$h!t crazy.Isn't that what other countries do to opposing leaders/enemies? De-humanize them. Make them appear less than human in character. It makes it so much easier to bomb his country and kill some more of his people. But oh', our leaders care so much for the victims of these attacks. They don't care about people dying. If they did, then why hasn't the U.S. leadership spearheaded an effort to develop these countries in central and southern Africa. Where people are absolutely driven into destitution and poverty. You don't here any Kerry or McCain pleading from the depths of their hearts to help those people, do you? Why is that? Where is the mass public outcry for them? You're right, I don't trust a damn word they say. Not when they've been caught lying over and over again. Form Iran Contra, to WMD's in Iraq, to F&F, to the NSA. They've proven what their word is worth, absolutely worthless.

What kind of proof do you expect to be released to the public? Assad hitting the launch button, counting down from 10 to when the bomb would detonate? It comes down to one simple thing, you either trust what your Govt. tells you and you back them on their intel or you don't. If you don't believe them now, I'm sure no evidence out there will ever make you believe them. Cause likely, there will be misinformation reports out there to counter everything they say or use.
