    Who is reporting this, I will say I figured if they had them they might use them. They are that crazy....
    It is amazing to me the Dems haven't and can't seem to figure out why Trump was elected. Why they lost the middle Blue Voters. Here is one big reason. The BIG TENT PARTY isn't so big anymore. Middle Blue Collar dems are not accepted because they don't agree with the left wing. They are attacked and ridiculed in today's Dem party. One is not allowed to disagree. The whole selling point of the Dem Party was the ability to differ. Not anymore.

    I just did an open search and there are many sources reporting this has happened.

    Probably stolen from the Assad regime. They used it on ISIS in the past.

    Chlorine is easy to come by. It is technically not a chemical weapon, but certain can harm you if you inhale it. It was used in some IEDs throughout the occupation.

    Granny says, "Dat's right - dey in cahoots together...

    Official: Russia knew Syrian chemical attack was coming
    Apr. 11, 2017 | WASHINGTON (AP) ó The United States has made a preliminary conclusion that Russia knew in advance of Syriaís chemical weapons attack last week, but has no proof of Moscowís involvement, a senior U.S. official said Monday.
    The official said that a drone operated by Russians was flying over a hospital as victims of the attack were rushing to get treatment. Hours after the drone left, a Russian-made fighter jet bombed the hospital in what American officials believe was an attempt to cover up the usage of chemical weapons. The U.S. official said the presence of the surveillance drone over the hospital couldnít have been a coincidence, and that Russia must have known the chemical weapons attack was coming and that victims were seeking treatment.

    The official, who wasnít authorized to speak publicly on intelligence matters and demanded anonymity, didnít give precise timing for when the drone was in the area, where more than 80 people were killed. The official also didnít provide details for the military and intelligence information that form the basis of what the Pentagon now believes. Another U.S. official cautioned that no final American determination has been made that Russia knew ahead of time that chemical weapons would be used. That official wasnít authorized to speak about internal administration deliberations and spoke on condition of anonymity. The allegation of Russian foreknowledge is grave, even by the standards of the currently dismal U.S.-Russian relations.

    Although Russia has steadfastly supported Syrian President Bashar Assadís government, and theyíve coordinated military attacks together, Washington has never previously asserted that Moscow was complicit in any attack that involved the gassing of innocent civilians, including children. The former Cold War foes even worked together in 2013 to remove and destroy more than 1,300 tons of Syrian chemical weapons and agents. Until Monday, U.S. officials had said they werenít sure whether Russia or Syria operated the drone. The official said the U.S. is now convinced Russia controlled the drone. The official said it still isnít clear who was flying the jet that bombed the hospital, because the Syrians also fly Russian-made aircraft.

    U.S. officials previously have said Russians routinely work with Syrians at the Shayrat air base where the attack is supposed to have originated. U.S. officials say the chemical weapons were stored there and that those elements add to the conclusion that Russia was involved. Last Thursday 59 Tomahawk missiles were fired on the government-controlled base in the United Statesí first direct military action against Assadís forces. The U.S. has been focusing its military action in Syria on defeating the Islamic State group. On Monday, Col. John J. Thomas, a U.S. military spokesman, said the U.S. has taken extra defensive precautions in Syria in case of possible retaliation against American forces for the cruise missile attack.

    Thomas told reporters at the Pentagon that the increased emphasis on defensive measures to protect U.S. troops on the ground in Syria led to a slight and temporary decline in offensive U.S. airstrikes against IS in Syria. There has been no Syrian retaliation so far for the cruise missile attack, which destroyed or rendered inoperable more than 20 Syria air force planes, he said. Thomas said the U.S. intends to return to full offensive air operations against IS as soon as possible.

    There have been numerous chemical attacks on Syrians by US backed terrorists.
    Currently, the US is using chemical weapons against civilians in Syria.
    There would not be a problem in Syria if the US did not support the terrorists and their sponsors, Turkey, Saudis, Talmudistan, UK, France & Qatar etc.
    The US along with UK, Israeli & French terrorists started the conflict in Syria.
    The US continues the war on Syria and has invaded Syria.

    The US could end the war in Syria over night by confessing our own guilt and telling the UK, French, Saudis, Talmudistan etc. to stop NOW their war on Syria, or face being bombed.
