The use of chemicals against civilians in Syria has caused considerable controversy in the highest political echelons with the UN coming out in force to condemn it.

Here are two comments worth considering.

Said Lt.Col. Clement Mason, head of the US Military: "We have taught the world that it is okay to kill people in pursuit of monetary gain... and when it comes to feathering one's nest morals shouldn't really come into it. Basically, it is okay to bomb the shit out of men, women and children and there is always a place for nuclear bombs which as you know can reduce a human being to a mere stain in the ground in a nano-second and leave the surviving population riddled with cancer for decades... but we do draw the line at chemical warfare. Disgusting! All the more so because the bastards can make the stuff all by themselves and don't have to come to us to buy it."

Said Captain Francis Armfield of the British Admiralty.... "Chemical warfare?.. well, it's just not cricket, is it old boy?"
