    Guess no war this year....

    Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has said he is committed to a plan to destroy his country's chemical weapons, but warned it could take about a year.

    Speaking to Fox News, Mr Assad again denied claims that his forces were responsible for a deadly chemical attack near Damascus on 21 August.

    The Syria disarmament plan was unveiled by the US and Russia last weekend.

    The West wants the deal enshrined in a UN resolution backed by the threat of military force, but Russia objects.

    Damascus - backed by Moscow - has insisted that rebel forces carried out last month's attack in the Ghouta area.

    In separate developments, a roadside bomb attack in central Homs province caused multiple deaths and fierce fighting was reported between two rebel groups in the north of Syria.....

    Okay, so the precedent is that you get to use chemical weapons on children, and then you get a year to dispose of them. So, I guess when Iran nukes Israel, Obama will give them a year to dispose of their weapons, too. Anyone else see a problem with this?

    We took quite a bit longer than that to dispose of our own stockpiles, of course some of that was technology development, because to name just one little problem, it proved to be rather difficult to safely demil an M55 rocket, being as how it was permanently assembled, fuze, payload, and rocket motor all in one package.
