1. Chemical WMDs are EXTREMELY easy to hide and transport. A complete UN search with the infra-red satellite to find underground bunkers and every detector known to man will be needed to make sure they haven't hidden anything.
2. If a mistake is made about getting rid of the Chemical WMDs the results COULD be catastrophic. Assad could use it against his own people while framing the rebels (but doing it properly this time). Eventually, with or without arms, the rebels will win. You can't rape that many women and get away with it in the Muslim world (rape is technically a death offense, though not, apparently, in Egypt - "Stoning To Death" to be precise). India is a whole different culture of brown people (India's unique closeness with the west MAY have to do with cultural similarities in how they treat thier women and then deny it). The rebels will keep on fighting till Assad Al Bashar is dead. Any chemical weaponsAssad Al Bashar has will become war booty when he loses. Some will be forgiving. Some will not. The ones who are not will make great recruits for terrorists. Setting a threat of bombing Assad if he hasn't removed ALL the chemical weapons means he can be framed by the rebels. The chemical weapons must be secured, imagine how you would feel if someone sneaks away from this Syrian Civil War with chemical weapons in hand and hit a US embassy. Wouldn't more than 4 people die? What if this happens under a Republican administration?
The delay in taking action in Syria (for political reasons) have left only some of the most violent & paranoid fighters in charge. No moderate can last in a civil war this bloody for 3 years waiting for the US to be ready with the right platform to take action so it won't interfere with elections. The longer we wait the more extremist the fighters will get.
From Bill Moyers: No white hats: Up until about a year ago, advocates of intervention in Syria’s civil war hoped that a relatively liberal government could replace the Assad regime. They pointed to the ideological moderates in the Free Syrian Army as a source for potential leaders. But since that time, the FSA has become sidelined by radical and violent Islamists from around the region.
Note: GOP made it clear they would invade Iran i.e. GOP's Main Problem With Ron Paul In The GOP Primary Was That He Wouldn't PRE-AGREE To Invade Iran
