I think an important issue at the moment is the lack of clarity on *who* launched the alleged chemical weapon attack. The UN has not completed its investigation. Nonetheless, the US government seems hellbent on charging in - without all the facts, except those they have established (apparently) themselves - and blowing things up. Which will almost certainly have extremely dire consequences, including an increased in terror attacks on western targets. We all still remember the WMD debacle that 'justified' the invasion of Iraq. It was, iirc, very "obvious" that Saddam had these weapons, after all they built a whole alliance and launched a war based on this… It is within the realm of possibility that some rebel or gov splinter group took it upon themselves to up the ante by launching the attack, knowing it would muddy the waters. We simply don't know.
