#3 One of the problems of using chemical weapons is that they themselves become a target that if 'excited' turns on its owners.

#4 Interesting - we've gone from "secret deployment," to "assisting with refugee control," to "assisting the Jordanian military," to "monitor Syrian chemical weapons".

#5 Is that what you call "mission creep"?

#10 It's not mission creep, it's revolving door lies, trying to find one that sticks.

#11 mission creep - but not OUR fault. The next few weeks may pose the biggest risk in terms of AQ actually getting their hands on a real weapon of mass destruction.

I hope all our guys will be OK.
