File under: Govt of Syria
#1 first off, it appears that the ME has dodged a bullet twice when to comes to the release of nuclear or chemical toxins. first with the shutdown at the Bushehr Reactor, and now with the chemical weapons under Assad (although that's not over yet). the world is coming closer to seeing a major disaster than it has for a long time.
but the question you have to ask is this ... how much bribery does it take for Al Qaeda to get its hands on sarin now? if binary components have already been mixed, what more do they need to do? Offer $1 million and a plane ticket to anywhere in the world. $5 mil ... #10 mil?? Everyone has their price.

#2 Well, if he uses the Sarin, Hillary has said it will be a red line. So, the US will ask the UN to issue a VERY strongly worded resolution of disapproval.

#5 Anyone have any questions where Iraq's nerve gas supplies went all those years ago? Trucks into the Bekka valley before the attack, and thanks to the asshole Turks, the 3rd Infantry wasn't there to shut the door on the escape route and capture/destroy those transports.

#6 and thanks to the asshole Turks
You can also thank the State Department, who not only leaked details of negotiations, but made it appear that other, unrelated aid was tied to letting the 3rd through Turkey.
