Frankly, I’m indifferent about the Syrian civil war. A brutal dictator is battling against various brutal factions of Islamists and sectarian separatists each trying to out-brutalize each other. From a purely pragmatic standpoint, the world itself would likely be improved by their self-culling.
But now Bashir Assad now seems intent on accelerating that extermination, part of me hopes that more powerful forces intervene to stop the pending use of nerve gas against civilians.
Syria has loaded chemical weapons into bombs and are ready to use them, Fox News confirms.
A senior U.S. official told Fox News that bombs were loaded with components of sarin gas. They have 60 days to use these bombs until the chemical mixture expires and has to be destroyed.
One of Saddam’s favorite weapons may once again rain death from the skies.
I cannot feel anything but sadness.
