US says Syria used chemical weapons

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. intelligence has concluded “with some degree of varying confidence” that the Syrian government has twice used chemical weapons in its fierce civil war, the White House and other top administration officials said today. However, officials also said more definitive proof was needed and the U.S. was not ready to escalate its involvement in Syria. That response appeared to be an effort to bide time, given President Barack Obama’s repeated public assertions that Syria’s use of chemical weapons, or the transfer of its stockpiles to a terrorist group, would cross a “red line.”

Going to be interesting to see what the Wing Nuts say about this,

I heard this allegation of the Syrian Government using C/B weaponry puts Barry under pressure to take action.

What pressure this puts Barry under is to be damned certain the allegations are true, actual fact, before doing anything other than making sure the allegations are true.

Remember the Neo Cons marching us off to war on transparent lies and the flimsiest of excuses?

We don't need that AGAIN.

OTOH, no matter how much the Wing Nuts love war this would be Barry taking action making the Republican automatically against it, so I guess we have nothing to worry about.
