    The current problem with those entities is that there is debate about whether they're actually illegal.  
    Syria hasn't signed the CCW, so by your same logic there could be a debate about whether what it's done is "actually illegal."

    Fourth Amendment?  CCW? What's the difference?

    And please note.  I am not at all condoning the use of CW. But then again, I also don't condone the violation of the 4th amendment.  I'm merely demonstrating where your logic can go.

    •  But you're equating violations... (1+ / 0-)

      ...of the 4th Amendment with the use of chemical weapons, aren't you?

      •  I'm not equating that at all. (4+ / 0-)

        If you want to argue that a country that has not signed an international treaty is still acting in violation of that treaty if it doesn't abide by it, there are heads of states of many countries, including this one, that will disagree.

        Your argument about legality takes one to all sorts of places.
