Chemical Weapons in Syria: The Opposition Using Them, Too

by Kathryn Jean Lopez

What if chemical weapons get into the hands of rebels in Syria? What if they already are? Citing the U.N, Michael Rubin, who readers here know, Middle East scholar at AEI, talked about the al-Nusra Front, an al-Qaeda affiliate, which has dominated the opposition, on Bill Bennett’s Morning in America this morning. If our red line is a chemical weapons attack, then Rubin advocates we should strike against both parties and hold them both accountable.

(See here and here for news reports.)

Some Rubin with Bennett here.

What a disaster.

I don’t know why we’re getting into the middle of it. I don’t see what good can come of it.
