FG, you have a consistent pattern of re-writing history. You keep saying that “these same Syrians danced in the streets” on 911. That simply is not true. Although there may have been some celebrating in Syria, it certainly wasn’t sanctioned by their government which was then firmly in control of their country. Before the war, Syria had actually done quite a bit to improve its standing in the eyes of the United States. It cooperated in the war against al-Qaida, sharing the intelligence it gained from interrogations of Zammar, the man suspected of recruiting Mohamed Atta to carry out the 9/11 attacks. In addition, Syria supported the Saudi plan for peace with Israel. As well, Assad denounced the 9/11 attacks. Try some facts on for size instead of shooting your mouth off!

From the Elder of Ziyon--a pro American Pro Israeli blog. The blog has a high rank on Technorati and has been quoted by the WSJ and Fox, among others. "Syrian Captain Told: 'Fire Chemicals or be Shot'. The messages were picked up by British officers. Anonymous Royal Air force (RAF) and Ministry of Defense sources who spoke to the Express said the messages were initially treated “with caution” due to fears they could have been planted by rebels. The intercepted radio messages begin with a regional commander demanding that the captain of a Syrian Army artillery battery fire chemical shells. When the officer protests, he is told 'in direct terms' that if he does not fire the weapons, he will be killed."

Anyone have proof that Assad or his direct reports gave orders to use a poisonous gas?

Please remember that immediately following 9/11 that these very same Syrians, or their parents were in the streets cheering wildly at the attack on America.

How many of our brave service people and how much of our treasure do we want to put at risk for people who will still hate us in the morning?

Especially when the origin of the gas is still in doubt.
