I am no longer skeptical about Assad's responsibility in chemical weapons attack

Sources which were previously cautious about assigning blame are now saying that the UN report points to the Syrian Government.

The New York Times: "Forensic Details in U.N. Report Point to Assadís Use of Gas"

Besides, Human Rights Watch has concluded that Assad was the culprit as well. This organization has no dog in that fight, therefore is credible in my view.

President Assad needs to be brought to trial in a world court.

3. Maybe but perhaps not if that "Tea party style Republican" president were Rand Paul.

True, but not just Assad and not just because of the chemical attack on August 21. All sides should be subject TP prosecution at the World Court.

The Security Council needs to pass a resolution making war crimes in Syria come under the jurisdiction of the ICC. This has not happened to date but should be something that all sides could agree on.
