This iReport is part of an assignment:
Are chemical weapons a ‘red line’?
Would using chemical weapons against the terrorist of 9/11 be a red line?
I was watching BBC last night and their report on the civil war in Syria, and found myself with an uneasy feeling.
The folks that they were interviewing in Syria, who support Assad, claimed that the American public was misinformed and by their actions were backing Islamic terrorist.
This brought a disturbing question to my mind in respect to this "red line" about chemical weapons.
If it turned out that these folks were correct, and the rebels that it seems Pres. Obama is at least in this regard protecting, were no different then those who flew the planes into the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and the field in Pennsylvania on 9/11, would the use of chemical weapons against them really be a "red line" for most Americans?
