Israel has been asking Jordan for permission to bomb the chemical weapons sites for 2 months, and Jordan's response if that it isn't yet the right time?

One wonders when the right time would be--after Assad has used the chemical weapons on his own people?

Looks like the Noughties Revival has begun. Remember this old tune?

Quote:
They report that one American official told them that "the activity we are seeing suggests some potential chemical weapon preparation," though the official "declined to offer more specifics of what those preparations entailed."

Since Sadam's regime did use plenty of chemical weapons it is no wonder this sounds familiar.

Iraq had no chemical weapons at all in the noughties. They conquered the country, turned it upside down, found absolutely nothing.

I say, close enough to nothing.

Apparently, Turkey is concerned about Syria's chemical weapons as well...wonder how many civilians will need to suffer before the UN thinks about calling together a committee?

The UN has trouble dealing with Syria because China and Russia can veto any move from the Security Council.

NATO seems to have warned Syria not to use chemical weapons.

Israel and Jordan seem to be doing roughly the same thing and are trying to coordinate with each other in whatever it is they are doing.
