Not the world's policeman

(Continued)

It is important at this time to review the past and ask what became of Saddam's arsenal of chemical weapons. Several years ago I read a lengthy article that presented rather convincing evidence that in the lead up to the invasion, the Iraqi weapons were moved into Syria. One question that has not been asked by anyone is, if the Syrian government was responsible for the recent attacks on its own civilian population, where did the Assad regime get its chemical weapons? I don't know but it's a question which should be investigated.

The same question should be asked today. Are Assad's chemical weapons a threat to the United States or our ally Israel? The answer is no. We should not intervene. We are not the world's policeman.
