If the wpns are used the syrians may want the west to attack. This would reveal the wests tactics to use on iran. It would raise the stakes and slow the attack on iran. A piece meal attack is to be avoided. The israelis should get ready! This is really going to get things moving.

If those weapons are used, there won't be many people left. If the West goes in, they will be fighting the leftover AlQaeda forces and the Islamic extremists for another decade.

LIAR!! YOU AND JO JO THE SCUMBAG ARE SO IN LOVE WITH ASSAD IT'S PATHETIC!! The Associated Press reports the surprise meeting between United States, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and mediator Lakhdar Brahimi in Dublin confirms talk of an easing of some of the acrimony that's raged between Moscow and Washington over how to handle Syria's violence and suggests a compromise between the two may be attainable.
A senior U.S. official told Fox News Wednesday that Syrian forces had loaded bombs with components of sarin gas, a deadly nerve gas. They have 60 days to use these bombs until the chemical mixture expires and has to be destroyed.
NBC News , which first reported this latest escalation in the Syrian civil war, cited sources saying bombs filled with a sarin component have not yet been loaded onto planes, but the Syrian military is prepared to use these chemical weapons against civilians pending orders from Assad.
The sarin could be delivered in several ways but is believed to have been placed in fracturable canisters that can be dropped from planes, according to a senior US military source.
"We think they have it in aerosol form," the source told Fox News.
The United States has said chemical weapons use would be unacceptable and would trigger greater Western intervention in the conflict.
The U.S. military is making contingency plans should Assad leave suddenly. Various Middle Eastern countries are trying to find a place to give Assad asylum, according to Middle Eastern diplomatic sources.

They be stupid to use chemicals. They would lose China support and bring on western forces.

I believe, if this is even true, they loaded the weapons so that they expire. To be dispoosed of in the event of a rebel takeover.

I also believe Assad sleeps very well.. inside a Russian warship.

Just heard that Russian troops could go in to secure those WMDs, on Assad's invitation! Now this is really getting interesting!
