Nothing. Yet we want to "punish" them for having alqaeda/rebels gas civilians with alCIAda provided sarin gas.
We do not want more wars.
We do not want to fight along side terrorists.

Notwithstanding gassing concentration camp inmates, even Hitler respected the 1935 convention banning chemical warfare.
What Syria has done is crossed a threshold of violence deemed morally unacceptable by the entire world community as a crime against humanity.
Were such crimes against humanity to become permitted as acceptable or too hard to prevent there would not longer be any inhibitions against any
nation using for example biological weapons against the citizens of new York or nerve gas in the New York subways.
And if the people of the United States don't feel that it is their business to be outraged by nerve gas attacks in Syria then why should the world
give a damn about jet airliners being flown into the twin towers?
We are our brother's keeper. What some terrorist does to inflict pain and hurt on the citizens of Syria has just as much relevance as what another
terrorist does to inflict pain and hurt on our brothers and sisters in the twin towers of New York. An attack on them is an attack on all of us.
