Response to Thinkingabout (Reply #52)

54. No one in their right mind is disputing the use of chemical weapons

What is lacking is evidence on who used them/ordered the attack.

That is the evidence we do still need. Unless you don't care if you attack the right faction of the 7 or 8 fighting in Syria.

DeSwiss merely pointed out that these home-made looking missiles certainly aren't military stuff. It could still have been the military. But it might not. That doesn't make Assad any less murderous... but none of the other factions seems to value the lives of children any higher than he does. These strikes will escalate the war = more deceased children and adults laying dead.
This is a total no-win situation and doing something merely because something needs to be done is a recipe for disaster.
