Syria: Obama and Assad share 'red line'

Chemical weapons are a "red line" for Syria, too, a top government official said Thursday.

Syrian Information Minister Omran al Zoubi said in an exclusive interview with CNN that a hard-line Islamist rebel group has used chemical weapons during the civil war and his government "would never use" such munitions "if we had them."

"President Obama says chemical weapons are a red line," al Zoubi said. "Then he is in direct accordance with President (Bashar al-) Assad who also thinks that chemical weapons are a red line."

    “Pennsylvania law requires that once a baby leaves the mother, he be treated with dignity and respect like a human being,” Cameron said. “But the question we need to ask that man sitting over at the table: Are you human? To med these women up and to cut these babies’ necks is not human.”

    You are right@Mary. There has been no further coverage of these killings. All we know is that he was charged with 4 counts of murder & the trial was under way.

    The real key to the business model, though, was this: Gosnell catered to the
    women who couldn’t get abortions elsewhere – because they were too pregnant. Most
    doctors won’t perform late second-trimester abortions, from approximately the 20th week
    of pregnancy, because of the risks involved. And late-term abortions after the 24th week
    of pregnancy are flatly illegal. But for Dr. Gosnell, they were an opportunity. The bigger
    the baby, the more he charged.

    Office workers had her sign various forms that she could not read then began doping her up.
    She received repeated unmonitored, unrecorded intravenous injections of Demerol
    a sedative seldom used in recent years because of its dangers.
    Gosnell liked it because it was cheap.
    After several hours, Mrs. Mongar simply stopped breathing.
