   What's needed to "prepare" to use nerve agents? Move the weapons from the 
ammo bunker? Ensure your own troops have gas masks and atropine? That's done 
easily and without much fanfare or notice.

   To me, this smacks of WMD in Iraq. My guess is that this is just propaganda 
from the west. Assad has to know that use of such weapons would completely 
eviscerate his int'l support and would greatly increase the odds of direct 
imperial intervention.

"Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that the 
Iraq regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons 
ever devised." -- George W. Bush, lying to the American people, in a speech 
from the White House, March 17, 2003.
