Why did Assad use chemical weapons in Syria? I can see if he is about the lose but I don't see anything that indicated his power was any more in danger than the previous weeks/months. Was there a strategic need to use those weapons?

Asad?

He figures he's losing control, and desperate men do desperate things.

That, and he has all Sadaam's WMDs that the Left has been whining about not finding in Iraq.

Found them NOW, didn't you assholes?

I think it can go either way on who the guilty party is. Who benefits most from the outrage? The truth is he's been holding his own. Kind of makes you wonder why he'd draw scorn down on him from the UN and risk action when he's basically been kicking Al Qaeda butt recently...

There's no proof as to who used them. If you believe everything the Islamic extremists tell you, then they have won.

ETA: You must remember, Assad is a Baathist just as Sadaam Hussein was. They believe in modernization, westernization, and good ties with 1st world countries. The opposition group is based on fundamental Islamic beliefs, not freedom. They are trying to impose Sharia law in Syria and force themselves back into the 15th century. Who do you think the real bad guys are?

Chemical weapons are excellent when you don't want to ruin infrastructure and instead just kill the enemy. They don't tend to demolish buildings or ruin road ways. If you're a dictator looking to kill rebels without knocking out the national infrastructure that helps keep money flowing to your Swiss Bank Accounts they're just the ticket. They also help deny the area to an enemy for a period of time if that enemy doesn't have the proper kit.

To answer your question one must first assume that Assad is the one that used the chems.

I haven't made that assumption.

Has there been any proof what, if any, chemical weapon was used?

If the truth ever comes out, I will be surprised if Assad ordered a chemical attack.

What did he have to gain? The war is at worst a stalemate, at best he's winning. He has Russia and China backing him.

Why use Chemical Weapons, and tempt the wimpy west to step in?

I still think the rebels did it. Would you put it past a bunch of Islamic Radicals to kill a bunch on their "own side", if they thought they could gain from it?

I'm not convinced he did it, or if he did place the order that there wasn't someone else pulling strings. I know it sounds like a bad tom clancy novel but it appears that someone is pulling the strings to get the US embroiled in yet another drawn out no-win shithole mideast conflict, just as the others are winding down. Drain us of $, resources, and will to do battle. I'm not saying its not sad that some kids got nerve gassed, but there are at least as many kids dying of malnutrition/disease/local conflict every damn day in all the other 3rd world shitholes. Whether they died of nerve gas or neglect or some other societal negligence doesn't make them any less dead. OH TEH KNOWZ NERVE GAS!!!!!!!!

There is far more benefit for the opposition to use gas on the civilians and blame Assad.

I would not put it past Assad to use them but there is far more reasoning the rebels used gas to draw idiot politicians into the war on their side.

Is anyone that stupid in DC?? (besides McCain)

I say let them kill each other until they have wiped out the whole lot of themselves and good ridden

They're not going to step in because they've spent the last 10 years giving us shit about invading Iraq over the same issue. And audacity is a Russian virtue. They'll piss on your back and tell you it's raining right before blaming you for wasting piss. Putin will happily let Syria test the waters for his next little adventure.

The last thing Assad wants is any international intervention. He doesn't need to use chems to win. There is no upside - none.

I think the rebels had no problem sacrificing their own to get us into the war. They know once we start launching cruise missiles its game over for Assad. It's clear the rebels treat their own worse then animals so this is just part of winning the war for them. All those people could have been poisoned to make it look like they got gassed instead.

"Why did Assad use chemical weapons in Syria?" You are asking yourself a framed question.

You are assuming the controlled media that is feeding you is telling you the truth.

Its strange how the media constantly lies and manipulates to push domestic agendas in the US and most conservatives see through it, but when it comes to world events we still take their "reporting" as fact.

That said, the questions you should be asking yourself:

1) Who would benefit most from the use of chemical weapons in Syria?

2) Who used them the last 2 times there while blaming Syrian government forces which was proved to be false?

3) Who does the US support in Syria?

If you answered Al Queda to all 3, then you would be correct.

I thought about it and I can't get over the fact that Assad is a Baathist dictator suppressing an uprising and they have a bit of a history of doing stupid shit like using chemical weapons against their own people.

They also help deny the area to an enemy for a period of time if that enemy doesn't have the proper kit.

ETA: You must remember, Assad is a Baathist just as Sadaam Hussein was. They believe in modernization, westernization, and good ties with 1st world countries. The opposition group is based on fundamental Islamic beliefs, not freedom. They are trying to impose Sharia law in Syria and force themselves back into the 15th century. Who do you think the real bad guys are?


I approve of the above post. Earlier in the year there was another accusation of chemical agents being used.
