It seems like the Syrian govt has been building a stockpile of sarin gas for quite awhile. And they had help from Iran and Russia, but also from China sometimes operating through North Korea. There have even been a few American companies help that along as well. From what I read, it seems like Syria was able to acquire the sarin gas, by the same concept of people who 'launder" their money.
According to congress, Syria, still needs those foreign countries to get the key element to do its own program. The bad thing is that those same ingredients can also be used for other medicine as well.. And another unidentified American company sold potassium cyanide to a Syrian pediatric hospital in 2006, but made no effort to check whether it was used for treating patients, as the Syrians had insisted was done, or instead was diverted for making chemical weapons.
Another country had discussed how 'monoethylene glycol', an important raw material used to manufacture urethane and antifreeze, was shipped by a Dutch concern to the Syrian Ministry of Industry, considered a front for the Syrian military. The Dutch outlined how the chemical could also be used as a precursor for sulfur mustard, and possibly for VX and sarin.

Why can't other countries put pressure on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to take a strong stand against Syria. Where is the League of Arab States? Why doesn't the Arab League come to some consensus about what to do with Syria? Lets pressure them to take a real stand.

Considering the opinions of both the rebels and the Syrian soldiers that a strike would change NOTHING, there is absolutely no reason to strike. What exactly is our purpose in this?
If I'm understanding this whole thing, Syrians are killing other Syrians and we have to go bomb Syria and kill more Syrians to stop the killing of more Syrians? Yeah, that totally makes sense.
