It appears that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has unleashed chemical weapons against rebels of his regime. The :42 video, released by rebels, shows victims of chemical warfare.
The Obama administration’s threat to put boots on the ground in Syria will be tested this week if the video proves true that Assad has unleashed chemical weapons.
“This is a red line for the United States. I’m not going to telegraph in any specifics what we would do in the event of credible evidence that the Assad regime has resorted to using chemical weapons against their own people. But suffice to say we are certainly planning to take action.”—Hillary Rodham Clinton, Secretary of State
Strap yourselves in boys and girls; this could be the start of something big.
