U.N. weapons inspectors to return to Syria

U.N. investigators are planning to return to Syria soon to follow up on several more allegations of chemical weapons use.

Ake Sellstrom, the head of the inspection team that visited after an August 21 attack, told CNN that the second visit could take place as early as next week.

The news will likely please Russia, who slammed a recent U.N. chemical weapons report as "one-sided" and called for inspectors to return to Syria.

    Wonderful. We've got plenty of problems right here in the USA with psychotic contractors who have security clearances and adequately destructive weapons.

    This trip will be futile as they have moved all chemical weapons already!

    In this blame game@chrissy there is no alternative.
    Had we learned our lessons from disastrous interventions, we would have the time and treasure to focus on myriad problems at home.

    CNN is once again blocking saywhat and chrissy. I guess they don't like my graphic writing nature. But all I've been trying to say is, to put it in a nut shell, we are about to bite the big one.
