Chemical Weapons Rain On Sleeping Syrians

Multiple reports coming out of Syria are pointing to an attack of chemical weapons, Sarin, VX, Mustard gas on several villages in Syria. Photos from the scene show numbers of dead, including many children none with obvious wounds laying in rows. Most are in their nightclothes suggesting that this vicious attack occurred in the middle of the night when people would be at their most vulnerable.
The UN Secretary General says his organization will investigate whether chemical weapons were indeed used. Look for delays, excuses and a lot of foot dragging during the investigation. The UN would be obligated to act if it is found chemical weapons were used, not only verbally but militarily.
Another chief concern is what will happen to Assad's chemical weapons stockpile should his regime fall? That's a very sobering question at this time.
