As a human being, I agree we should act to save the lives of the innocent. How ever, I do not believe a full blown military strike against Assad is
the answer. IF Assad, did this to these civilians before, in a limited use what would stop him from launching more against even more innocent people?
AS well, we do not know it was or wasn't Assad, we do not really know what the chemical is yet. ( I've heard assumptions, and educated guesses, but
I have not read a definitive report. This doesn't mean there isn't one.) Even knowing what chemical was used, it is not impossible for a random
group or single individual to produce these agents. I can purchase one of the components to agent orange. It's still used as an herbicide today. I
can produce a simple chlorine based blister agent from two household cleaners nearly everyone has. I can produce phosphene again a pesticide and a
Now if some of those very harmful things are available to just anyone in the public, and often get accidentally produced while cleaning, or cleaning
up a spill of pesticides(improperly), how is it that a group of people intentionally trying to produce a harmful agent can not?
The knowledge to produce these things are sadly available online, I know what I know through training provided through my work. I have a private, and
commercial pesticides license. I have Advanced WHMIS and Hazmat certificates. I've also taken Chemistry and any one else who has, is also aware of
the vast plethora of harmful crap you could make up from random Every day substances if you just read their labels.
I am 100% not convinced of who is to blame, but I am willing to believe this event took place.
It is terrible, and as A human being I am outraged, but as an educated civilized individual I know any actions on my own part, or that of my
government or military may in fact make the situation so much worse.
The moral question still remains, what do we do. I believe this is why these videos are presented.
