U.S. May Not Be Able to Stop Syria From Using Chemical Weapons

And there is little appetite in the U.S. military for taking on that challenge. Globalsecurity.org estimates Syria possesses “hundreds of liters” of Sarin, mustard gas and VX. The Pentagon estimates that 75,000 troops would be required to secure the chemical stockpiles, a force nearly the size of the one the U.S. fields in Afghanistan.

I wonder what Turkey’s appetite is like? While telling the Syrians that the “Turks” are coming, would be rather like telling the Russians that the Mongols were on the march, they would first shit themselves then laugh about shitting one self.

I mean, considering who’s marching, I am thinking Assad may be the least of Turkey’s worries.

I am not sure, even with China’s help, that Turkey’s appetite is as big as that. Gnawing into a front consisting of, at the very least, both Arabs and Persians?
