Chemical warfare used in Syria

The Assad regime has gone beyond the pale with use of chemical warfare:
Specialists working with Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) – the international medical charity – said that 3,600 patients were admitted to their clinics displaying symptoms of exposure to poisonous gases. If confirmed, this would be the deadliest use of chemical agents since Saddam Hussein gassed Iranian troops and Kurdish rebel areas in northern Iraq in the 1980s.

Of the patients MSF said 355 died – but the actual death toll is certain to be far higher, given the densely-populated nature of the suburbs where Wednesday's attack was launched.

The loss of life appeared last night to have pushed the West to reconsider its response to Syria.
Simply atrocious, and proves why all these Muslim autocracies in the mideast are very dangerous.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
