"This is a codename for the Syrian army's biggest chemical weapons store and base, which also houses Syrian Scud D missiles armed with chemical warheads adjusted to fire at Israel."

DF provided no proof. It also claimed Assad's warning to "rebels" not to use chemical weapons gives him "justif(ation) to use them himself."

Again, no evidence whatever suggests it. Claiming it escalates tensions. Full-scale war approaches. 

Longtime Middle East analyst Robert Fisk is no Assad supporter. On December 8, he headlined "Bashar al-Assad, Syria, and the truth about chemical weapons."

His father Hafez "was brutal but never used chemical weapons." What regional army used them first, he asked? Not Saddam. In 1917, Britain under General Allenby used them against Turkish forces. 

He omitted Winston Churchill (in 1919) advocating poison gas use against "uncivilized" Iraqis. Its WW I use caused 100,000 deaths and 900,000 injuries.

Fisk stopped short of explaining that Israel uses various forms of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons. So does America. It's longstanding policy in both countries. So is targeting civilians. They're treated like combatants.

Both countries test new weapons in real time. It's evident from what type injuries show up. Doctors find what they never saw before.
