The United States is in a tizzy about chemical weapons in Syria.

The United States is in a tizzy about chemical weapons in Syria.

Is this the United States which didn’t adhere to the 1925 Geneva gas protocol for 50 years?

Is this the United States which lobbied successfully for tear gas and other chemical agents to be exempted from the 1993 Chemical Weapons Convention if used against their own citizens?

Is this the United States which made such extensive use of “nonlethal” chemical munitions in violently suppressing the peaceful Occupy protests of two years ago?

Is this the United States which continues to use mines and cluster bombs in contravention of customary law?

Is this the United States which is preparing to go to war (without a declaration of war) in violation of international law, which prohibits aggressive warfare, which means attacking first. And all in the name of enforcing international law with regard to chemical warfare?
