In the speech, Obama said that Syria, Violated International Treaty by using Chemical Weapons.<<
I believe the administration’s line has been international “norms”, and then talk about everyone else being a party to a treaty. Makes you wonder if he’s gonna start rethinking that whole “Gay Marriage” norm thing.
It’s none of government’s business who you marry. It’s a religious rite, and between you, your partner(s) and God.
It’s already worked. Obama’s had his clock cleaned. But now, of course, he’s likely to be more of a danger to America than ever before (unless the congress puts him in his place).
If it is so difficult how did Saddam manage it and keep it a secret?
Bribery to the outside world and terror within his country. We did find stocks of various prohibited material, including binary nerve gas shells, specifically used as a really bad IED, it fizzled. It was filled with WMD gas in a regular looking artillery shell. But of course no matter what they found, the media always said it did not count.
Experts in chemical weapons disposal point to a host of challenges. Taking control of Assad's enormous stores of the munitions would be difficult to do in the midst of a brutal civil war. Dozens of new facilities for destroying the weapons would have to be built from scratch or brought into the country from the U.S., and completing the job would potentially take a decade or more. The work itself would need to be done by specially-trained military personnel or contractors. Guess which country has most of those troops and civilian experts? If you said the U.S., you'd be right. "This isn't simply burning the leaves in your backyard," said Mike Kuhlman, the chief scientist for national security at Battelle, a company that has been involved in chemical weapons disposal work at several sites in the U.S. "It's not something you do overnight, it's not easy, and it's not cheap."
