In recent weeks, numerous reports have surfaced claiming Western powers now have credible evidence that forces loyal to Syrian dictator Bashar Assad have used chemical weapons against their opponents in the country’s bitter civil war. According to Western intelligence agencies, the use of chemical agents has occurred in several parts of the country over recent months. This has led to increased pressure on the Obama administration to take military action against the Assad regime, since Washington had warned the use of chemical weapons would be a “game changer” which would trigger a heavy American response.

And yet, by press time, US President Barack Obama had remained extremely cautious about entering the Syrian fray, insisting that he first wants irrefutable proof that the Assad regime indeed ordered the use of chemical agents.
