DAMASCUS — U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Thursday said the U.S. intelligence community believes the Syrian government has used sarin gas on a small scale against rebels trying to overthrow the government of Bashar al-Assad.

"This morning the White House delivered a letter to several members of Congress on the topic of chemical weapons use in Syria. The letter ... states that the U.S. intelligence community assesses with some degree of varying confidence that the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons on a small scale in Syria," Hagel told reporters traveling with him. He said it was sarin gas.

Hurry!!! Lets attack. Once we get our troops in they'll be forced to accept billions. We shouldn't force the people of Syria to fight their own battles.

Ah come on now, they wouldn't do a thing like that, just like Iraq didn't have the weapons of mass destruction.

You must be smelling your own stuff. Not disagreeing with Red or nobody else, just being sarcastic, but as they say. Don't believe everything you read from the media, so why should I believe Syria is using chemical weapons? Because the media said so.

President Obama claimed that if the Syrian government used WMD they would be passing a “red line” where the US would become more involved in the conflict. But not to worry, there will be yellow, green, black and blue lines that also have to be crossed before any real action, other than having John Kerry write a harsh letter to the UN, is considered. At the end of the day we’ll probably just send more tanks and airplanes to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and hope that solves the problem.
