( Lucas : I can not interpret the scenario that was pushed forward to go to war as something else than a kill of the people, not the help in solving a conflict or a stop to the conflict in Syria; even if that conflict has been fueled with weapons and others dark ops in support of certain factions by those now going to attack and kill. With missiles and bomber attacks we will see lots of deaths and damages that can not be qualified as collateral damage. It is pre-determined and in full consciousness making a decision for genocide of the innocent Syrian people. We have seen those scenarios already with Iraq and others countries. Are we fooled again!)

The Middle East challenges and dissipates power quickly. We’re seeing that now in Syria.
President Obama drew a “red line” on the use of chemical weapons in Syria. The dictator Bashar al-Assad, sensing Obama’s determination to avoid further military conflict, has crossed that line, for the obvious tactical reason that such arms are ideal in a terror war against a civilian population in revolt. Weapons of mass destruction are the great equalizers: for Syria’s minority Alawite Shi’ite dictatorship, they are an essential tool to break the stalemate against the much more numerous Sunni opposition.
The Middle East, explained in one (sort of terrifying) chart
known Egyptian blogger who writes under the pseudonym The Big Pharaoh put together this chart laying out the region’s rivalries and alliances.
The joke is that it’s not a joke; this is actually pretty accurate
Remember the 400 tons of arms the Syrian rebels received a few days before Kerry’s speech? Well, in that case, they’ll be very useful soon.
Some of these arms (more expected to arrive beyond the 400 tons) are sophisticated & will prove to be effective as Assad gets the slaps
According to @MahirZeynalov some of them are sophisticated weapons. He has the details.
