The Guardian reports:
William Hague has said he has seen "some evidence" that Bashar al-Assad's regime is preparing to use chemical weapons against Syrian rebels.
The foreign secretary would not give specific details of the intelligence, also seen by the US, but said it was enough to renew warnings to Assad that his regime would face action if they were deployed.
You wouldn’t think they’d try it again ten years after Iraq would you? Do they really think we plebs are that gullible?
The fact that the WMD/chemical weapons card is being played is a sign of real desperation.
The UK/US and its NATO & Gulf allies have been trying for over a year and half now to topple the government in Syria through their backing of anti-government 'rebels'. Now that it's clear that the rebels don't have the strength, or the popularity within Syria to succeed, they've got to come up with a pretext for military intervention. So, hey presto! - let's start scaring people about 'evidence' that the Syrian government is about to use chemical weapons.
