How wise you sound sitting atop the poisoned bodies of women and children.

Let me consider your peculiar logic.

Assad has the largest stockpile of chemical weapons in the world. Check.

Assad's control structure over the largest stockpile is so poor lower level officials are able to go rogue, also known as out of control. Check.

He is willing to use them up to the point of the US not taking punitive action which affirms the principle that Assad amenable to punitive corrective action. Check.

Take no punitive/corrective action.

Peculiar. Check.

Logic. Not so much.

Two ways of looking at that. Assad "knows" it would be stupid to use never agents. He knows we know that. So how many mistakes or other excuses is he allowed?

Didn't mean for that to happen to your village town or suburb. It would be a shame if it were to happen again. Nudge nudge wink wink.
