Uh, you were the one that brought up Iraq.
I did a little research and discovered that it will take about six flights of a Russian Antonov 124 to rearm Syria with 1000 tons of chemical weapons from the Russian stockpile. In other words Syria can give up all their existing stockpile and be rearmed in a few days. This can happen at night and no one will be the wiser.
That doesn't make it any better Rick. This is not Clinton vs Reagan, it's what we do and have done in the past. Our hands are far from clean on the international scene.
I don't think this required research honestly, and it is likely self-evident. Syria could not use a new stockpile without being noticed; that's the point. If the scenario you described happens and the weapons are never used, then it largely doesn't matter - we're back to a pre-2013 situation anyway. If that scenario happens AND they use the weapons, then Syria *and* Russia have some very big problems with the rest of the global community.
