Ok.... I'm confused...( ?) What I'm not confused about is Assad gasing his own people....in my mind it's been proven he did not have anything to do w/ that.
Butt... He does have chemical weapons(?)
I feel any Country has a right to Energy ... ( nuke plants ) and they also have a right to protect them-selves. I'm not saying they have a right to gas people but what's the difference between a bomb killing innocents and chemicals.
Anyways... If anyone knows the answer... Please enlighten me. I think the question is... Does Assad have chemical weapons in his stockpile? And if it were you would you give up your weapons verses protecting yourself against threats ?
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad could avoid a U.S. military strike by surrendering all his chemical weapons within a week, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday, but immediately made clear he was not making a serious offer. ..............

DAMASCUS, Syria, Sept. 8 (UPI) -- Syria and its allies, Iran and Russia, are working on a proposal for a power transition that would head off a retaliatory U.S. military strike, Haaretz reports.
The Israeli newspaper said Arab and Iranian media had reported Iranian Parliamentary Committee Chairman Ala al-Din Boroujerdi and Syrian officials had discussed the proposal in recent days and that Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem was expected to go over it with Russian President Vladimir Putin when they meet Monday.
Haaretz said details of the proposal were unknown but allegedly would call for civil war-torn Syria to embark on a democratic transfer of power in stages.
Haaretz reported Putin and al-Muallem also are expected to discuss another proposal in which Syria would transfer its chemical weapons to Russia or another country. U.S.
