This iReport is part of an assignment:
Are chemical weapons a ‘red line’?
Unsure (the question I haven't heard anyone ask yet)

How are we going to secure the chemical stockpiles afterward? No-one in government is answering this question. We can't hit them directly, according to Hagel, because there is too much chance of collateral damage. How do we keep them out of the hands of Hezbollah and Al Queda? The only way I see is boots on the ground. I hope that someone during the hearing today asks this question. Mr. President....how can you destroy command and control centers of the Syrian army, and then expect them to be able to keep their chemical stockpiles out of the hands of their own ally, Hezbollah? Or out of the hands of the Al Queda fighters on the resistance side? Boots on the ground? Even though you have promised that there will be none?
