Um...ok.US troops could help secure Syrian weapons
Pentagon officials say they have largely ruled out sending in ground troops to secure Syrian chemical weapons under hostile circumstances, but the U.S. could provide forces if the Assad regime ever agrees to a peaceful transition.
Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, says it would be almost impossible to prevent the Syrian government from using chemical weapons, so the U.S. must continue warning Syria that using them would be unacceptable.
So what happens if they use them anyway?

Reports that a regime MiG shelled a regime outpost in JabalAlzawiyah Idlib by mistake...ridding us of an entire regime company.. : D
The Colonel pilot, and second in command at Taftanaz airport, Hosain Mahdi Al-Ali, has been killed by the FSA during clashes.
Ahrar Alsham at Taftanaz airport announced today that they are in control of all the planes including a MiG-25 (requires maintenance.)
It [Taking over the Taftanaz Military Airport] will create a relative no-fly-zone in the areas especially at Binnish, Taftanaz, Maarat Misreen and the nearby cities. It will also lessen the artillery shelling on many of these areas. The only other airport after Taftanaz in Idlib would be Abu Dhoor and that one should be easier to take out. This will also give the FSA one less worry when they attempt to liberate Idlib city. And finally...I HOPE the FSA can put the remaining helis to use and fly them to shell regime outposts.
