Regarding the Guardian article on the Asad regime, I think it's plausible that rogue leaders under Asad (rather than Asad himself) used chemical weapons. It's a chilling thought -- not only is Asad monstrous, but he isn't fully in control of his own government.

Ranch: The world being what it is, I never run out of material for these.
