    •  except that Hussein didn't have them and Assad (0+ / 0-)

      almost certainly does... (there wasn't any Iran/Iraq war, or No Fly Zone in Syria...)

      that said, I remain skeptical until I see confirmation elsewhere in the international press.

    •  Except Sadam said he didnt have any (0+ / 0-)

      And Syria has repeatedly acknowledged that they have chemical weapons.

      it is NOT the same situation.

      •  Because a state possesses a weapon (1+ / 0-)

        does not mean it's likely to be used. Israel has fought numerous wars and never used nuclear weapons, nor has the US, China, Pakistan, India or Russia.

        This is bogus, unconfirmed intelligence which reeks of a political agenda. US intel on Syria is FULL of holes a mile wide - we had no idea a rebellion was brewing, still have no idea of the ideology of the leadership of most of the anti-Assad opposition and we have no idea what will come afterwards. Consulting a magic 8-ball would be as accurate as US intelligence on Syria.
