Syria using chemical weapons and crossing of a “red line” painted by Obama is now being used to justify possible military intervention, or if not, at least direct weapons supplies to the Syrian rebels.

Israel and its backers have been hinting at possible military intervention in Syria on the pretext of preventing the transfer of its chemical weapons stockpiles to the Lebanese resistance. Such a step would set the region ablaze. Iran and Hezbollah have let it be known to all concerned that they would not stand idly by.
Putting aside all theoretical commentary about what is happening in Syria and the region, it would seem that we face a very high risk of a major explosion in the coming weeks.
