I think we shall be very careful, and thoroughly investigate who or what party is responsible for this tradgedy.

Let's not overlook the fact that Russia has as many if not more Warships deployed to the region, they were there before us, they have very vital interests in Syria, they have a shipping port there and their largest nuclear reactor outside of Russia is located in Syria.

In reply to my friend arctic's comment, no I haven't a clue as to who did it and I fear our government doesn't either going from their track record.
I would think there are several possibilities, the rebels were taking an old fashioned butt kicking in the weeks leading up to the gassing, if all queda is hooked up to the rebals as reported they would have no problem getting Sarin gas.
Iran would love nothing more than suck us into a conflict over there, who's to say they're not responsible in some indirect way.
And it could very well Bethe Assad regime that is responsible although I fail to see the logic behind it but they definitely have the means, Syria is sitting on the worlds largest stockpile of chemical weapons estimated to be 1000 tons, they were one of a very few countries to sign the accord not to use them after WWII.

And last but by far not least is the cold and calculating Vladimir Putin that loves poking a finger in our eye every chance he gets.

Is it worser to gas people into submission or starve them into submission like in N.Korea and a number of other tyrannical countries.

Let's also not lose sight of the fact that these people.wanna kill Americans, and its a heckuva lot easier to do it over there than here.
Under any other circumstances the rebels would be shooting at us.

Every rebellion group could have such weapon after knowing the whole mess ( making by company usa-nato ) in the Middle East. Iraq had stockpiles of chemical weapon,Iraq does not exist anymore and weapon is missing too. It could be something another, accidental missile, which was accidentally shot at deposites of chemicals or even sudden epidemy of something could lead to death. What sort of proofs have these guys, what sort of witnesses have them? Stronghold of rebels, who hate this Syrian government and they would fabricate all lies to get rid of Assad and Syrian government, especially that Syrian government succeeds in fights against these rebels, who are no angels, they are criminals, who deman to grab the power for every prioce, even for price demolishing of Syria and death of milions of people in next mindless, bloody war.

Foreign involvement in the Syrian civil war

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Foreign involvement in the Syrian civil war refers to political, humanitarian, military and operational support to parties involved in the Syrian civil war, as well as to incidents of unintentional foreign involvement. The Syrian civil war has received significant international attention, and both the Syrian government and the opposition have received support, militarily and diplomatically, from foreign countries. A large number of state and humanitarian bodies, including the UN, are involved in providing aid and accommodation to a large number of Syrian refugees in neighboring countries of Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq (including Iraqi Kurdistan) and Turkey; significant number of refugees also arrived in Egypt.

The main Syrian opposition body - the Syrian coalition receives logistic and political support from major Sunni states in the Middle East, most notably Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia; all the three major supporting states however haven't contribute any troops for direct involvement in the war, though Turkey was involved in a number of border incidents with Syrian Army; limited political support has also been provided by France, Britain and US. The major Syrian Kurdish opposition group, the PYD, was reported to get logistic and training support from Iraqi Kurdistan. Islamist militants in Syria were reported to receive support from private funders, mainly in the Persian Gulf area, as well as from Al-Qaeda in Iraq. Syrian Government major supporting parties are Iran and Hezbollah, both involved in the war politically, logistically and providing military equipment, training and in case of Hezbollah also significant battle troops. A number of covert strikes against Hezbollah and Iranian targets within Syrian territory during 2013 were attributed to Israel. Syrian government also receives arms and political support from Russia. Some support for Syrian Baathist government was received from North Korea, Venezuela, China and Huthis of Yemen.

The Syrian civil war has spilled across its borders and most notably affected Lebanon, where the Syrian civil war related sectarian violence has already resulted in more than 200 deaths; the incidents mostly include infighting between Sunnis and Alawites, as well as violence between Hezbollah and Syrian rebel-affiliated groups near the Syrian-Lebanese border. Syrian Army has also performed a number of strikes on Lebanese territory against Syrian rebel-affiliated targets. Violence of Syrian civil war has begun to increasingly penetrate into Iraq, some describing the result as merger of Iraqi insurgency and Syrian civil war - both conflicts between Sunnis and Shias, with Iraqi Jihadists engaging in fights with Syrian Army in border areas. Incidents involving the Syrian Army and Syrian rebels also took place on Israeli, Jordanian and most significantly Turkish borders with Syria.

If I can find out 'info' like this that easy, our government must be aware of it also.
So why would 'we' want to jump in the middle of a bowl-of-soup like this?
How long have these kind of wars been going on?
Ask Jesus, He'll tell you.
You can even find in the New Testament where He discuses such issues.
