Has this news been backed up anywhere else, I am hearing the telegraph.co.uk but they are citing rebel quotes, nothing from Turkey.
I think the best course of action if Russia agree the evidence is true is for Russia to persuade Assad to leave and be given immunity in Russia. An interim government can seek elections and a cease fire.
The UN can then seek evidence and try Assad fairly in the Hague.
I cant see what good comes from missile strikes (although if these defects are true - just the threat of military action seems to be doing a good job).
