  •  Do we have evidence (1+ / 0-)

    That the Syrian government was responsible for the use or lack of control over their stockpile that led to use of chem weapons?

    Do you think it would be prudent to determine that before we did anything?

    Currently, the assessment is that Assad has positive control over his stockpiles, and there is no evidence that forces under his control used chem weapons, only that traces and pathological evidence of use has been found.  

    Israel is much more concerned about hezbollah getting improved conventional weapons and is applying pressure on the International community to shut down the flow.  

    •  We have the largest intelligence service (0+ / 0-)

      on the planet.

      We have more alphabet soup agencies in Washington than can fit.  They're running out of letters!

      Of course we know if it was Assad's doing or not.  If Israel can have specific intel on a shipment of rockets, we surely can know where the chem weapons came from and who used them.
