Syria has been making Chemical Weapons right out in front of God and everyone for 30 years. Assad's father used them in the early 80's. The whole concept that anything was new or different here has been silly from the start and I've never understood it. Iraq hid things... Syria never has and never tried. It's been right out for the whole planet to see all along. It's just recently that anyone decided it couldn't be tolerated and now? Look where we are. American Presidents and Policy are all that changed. Assad and Syria hasn't.
Of course they have them. They've never actually denied it.
As of the end of March 2012, all 70 declared facilities had been deactivated and 92% (64) have been certified as destroyed or converted to civilian use. In 2009, Iraq declared five production sites which were put out of commission by damage in the 1991 and 2003 wars; OPCW inspections were still required.
We aren't the worlds police.
We're the worlds "George Zimmerman".
