So there are Islamists in with the rebels. We have agreed that there are. Now back to the topic. Assad should pay for using chemical weapons and especially on woman and children. I don't know what tis has to do with someone eating someons guts.

Oh, sorry, I forgot, you give them a pass.
Nobody has shown anything that accuses the rebels of using these weapons. You were probably told that by Glen Beck or someone.

And no one has shown anything that accuses Assad of using them, either...Just the accusations...No public proof yet...

Now I do BELIEVE it's was Assad's regime were the ones that used them...

But I'd rather there be a strike based on EVIDENCE, and not simply a BELIEF...

So far Obama hasn't given the public ANY evidence yet...Just "Oh yeah...Assad did it...Trust us."...

And that's no way to run a government...

Maybe you would like to tell me who said the rebels launched chemical weapons. Then I will judge their status compared to those who are saying Assad did. So who was it?

And there's your problem...

You're making a decision based on the STATUS of the people talking instead of seeing ACTUAL EVIDENCE...

The president hasn't shown the public any ACTUAL EVIDENCE yet...All we've heard are WORDS...

If I trust a president 99%, I STILL want to see ACTUAL EVIDENCE...

If I trust a president 2%, I STILL want to see ACTUAL EVIDENCE...

You're not looking for that...Your decision is based on blind trust of the people talking...

That is a HORRIBLE way to make decisions...especially a decision like dropping bombs and shooting missiles...

So you don't know who is accusing the rebels either. That's what I thought. I am more likely to believe the administration on this.

You are a very foolish boy. I've shown loads of stuff and it was
from Reuters and the BBC, is that unbiased enough for your naive
pea brain?

U.N. has Testimony that Syrian Rebels used Sarin Gas: investigator

GENEVA | Sun May 5, 2013 6:13pm EDT

(Reuters) - U.N. human rights investigators have gathered testimony from casualties of Syria's civil war and medical staff indicating that rebel forces have used the nerve agent sarin, one of the lead investigators said on Sunday.

The United Nations independent commission of inquiry on Syria has NOT yet seen evidence of government forces having used chemical weapons, which are banned under international law, said commission member Carla Del Ponte.

"Our investigators have been in neighboring countries interviewing victims, doctors and field hospitals and, according to their report of last week which I have seen, there are strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof of the use of sarin gas, from the way the victims were treated," Del Ponte said in an interview with Swiss-Italian television.

"This was use on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities," she added, speaking in Italian.

Del Ponte, a former Swiss attorney-general who also served as prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, gave no details as to when or where sarin may have been used.

The Geneva-based inquiry into war crimes and other human rights violations is separate from an investigation of the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria instigated by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, which has since stalled.

President Bashar al-Assad's government and the rebels accuse each another of carrying out three chemical weapon attacks, one near Aleppo and another near Damascus, both in March, and another in Homs in December.

The civil war began with anti-government protests in March 2011. The conflict has now claimed an estimated 70,000 lives and forced 1.2 million Syrian refugees to flee.

The United States has said it has "varying degrees of confidence" that sarin has been used by Syria's government on its people.

President Barack Obama last year declared that the use or deployment of chemical weapons by Assad would cross a "red line".
