A U.S. official said on Thursday that President Barack Obama has authorized sending U.S. weapons to Syrian rebels for the first time, after the White House said it has proof the Syrian government had used chemical weapons against opposition forces.

“Information about the use by Assad of chemical weapons has been fabricated in the same place as the lies about (Saddam) Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction,” Alexei Pushkov, head of the foreign policy committee in the lower chamber of the Russian parliament, said on Twitter. “Obama is taking the same path as George Bush.”

      Somebody used something that made whole pile of people have nerve and breathing problems, and a few died from the effects. Not as HUGE as Saddam used on one village at least … not numbers in the thousands … yet … but nevertheless, used. Was it a ‘test’ to see If The West would finally react? Was it a hope? The stuff is hardly ‘secure’ by this time – and there’s lots of idiots who would use it in that mess of a country now.
