Exploration 10: Syrian Chemical Weapons

My article was meanly about the civil war that's going on in Syria at the moment. And how the Syrian regime is intending to use a chemical weapons against the rebels, which we all know it's prohibited to use.The article also stated how president Obama warned the Syrian regime several times in the past year and also this year. Drawing the boundary for use of the weapons of mass destruction, President Obama said "A red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus.” From my understandings, it become difficult for the U.S. government to take a noticeable and strong step to prevent Assad's regime to use the chemical weapons against his own people.  
This conflict was now going on for two years and led to the death of more than 60,000 people. The most shocking thing that I observed reading the article is that for the past four decades, this Syrian regime has collected the largest undeclared stockpiles of chemicals in the world.





  1. Its a bit frightening to think about a possible chemical warfare. I hope the Syrian regime decides not to use these weapons.

  2. very terrifying knowing that countries other the the U.S have these chemical weapons but even more terrifying knowing that if they will use it on their own people that they could use it one us.
