    Meanwhile, under cover of "Fighting ISIS" and with Vlad's gleeful protection.....

    Syrian forces have used chemical weapons more than two dozen times during the country’s civil war, said UN war crimes investigators, including in the deadly attack that led to US air strikes on government planes.

    In the most conclusive findings to date from investigations into chemical weapons attacks during the conflict, the UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria says a government warplane dropped sarin on Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib province in April, killing more than 80 civilians.

    “Government forces continued the pattern of using chemical weapons against civilians in opposition-held areas. In the gravest incident, the Syrian air force used sarin in Khan Sheikhoun, Idlib, killing dozens, the majority of whom were women and children,” the report said on Wednesday, declaring it a war crime.

    I just looked up what it does :

    Within seconds of exposure to sarin gas (or liquid, which evaporates easily), we start to notice the immediate effects of acetylcholine buildup. First, our smooth muscles and secretions go crazy. The nerves to those areas keep firing, keep telling them to go. The nose runs, the eyes cry, the mouth drools and vomits, and bowels and bladder evacuate themselves. It is not a dignified state.

    Since sarin has no smell or taste, the person may very well have no idea what's going on. Their chest tightens, vision blurs. If the exposure was great enough, that can progress to convulsions, paralysis, and death within 1 to 10 minutes.

    If the exposure was not enough to kill them, though, the person should recover pretty quickly and completely. It is not the sort of agent that leaves people blind and infertile and glowing green. The U.S. military also has a lotion that can be applied immediately after exposure, Reactive Skin Decontamination Lotion, to good effect, among other antidotes. Most people exposed to sarin do not die. A large exposure is not a death sentence.

    Fisk is such a fucking twat.

    Those in the Israeli political right who claimed that Assad was a greater danger than Isis may have to think again – not least because Assad may be the man they’ll have to talk to if they want to keep their northern border safe.
    Assad was always the man they had to talk to, and he always knew better than to mess with them.

    Assad is totally cowed by Israel...the real danger to the Zionist entity is from ISIS-inspired attacks launched by Palestinian fanatics and those from Iran-supplied Hezbollah in Southern Lebanon...

    The Syrian President has his work cut out. He is using his assets where they will gain the most.

    Those assets include, of course, Russian and Iranian military and financial support, Hezbollah (the Shiite militia in southern Lebanon), and his own tribe of deviant Alawite Muslims...not to mention poison gas, barrel bombs and anything else he can throw at his many enemies...the weasel needs to be skinned and his hide nailed to the Damascus Gate...

    ^Is there room for another? Seems to me there are many who deserve that fate prior to his being "nailed".

    He is defending his country in the only way he sees as being effective. He has seen other countries invaded on lies and believes if his country does not have a deterrent it will be invaded in the same way by the same aggressor.

    What is happening is only reinforcing this belief, continual threats, sanctions and shows of force are only counter-productive they only make him more determined.

    He has Nukes and missiles, that will not change, accept it, let him have them and take away any reason he may ever have to use them.
