Second a day videos are usually pretty cute. Not this one. It certainly starts that way, but by the time it ends, you will have an overload of feels.
Syria’s agreement with the UN to eradicate its stockpiles of chemical warfare agents in exchange for the US not curb-stomping its Air Force is going about as well as you’d expect. That is, it’s woefully behind schedule with little hope of actually being completed. But, if and when the Assad regime does finally turn over its chemical munitions, they’ll be neutralized aboard this ship.
Disposing of the world’s chemical weapon stockpiles is far easier said than done. It’s not like the good old days prior to WWII when we could just dump extraneous supplies of mustard gas and other chemical weapons into the open ocean or under Delaware roadways or just big pits at the Redstone Arsenal in Alabama — no, no, now we have to dispose of it in a responsible manner. That’s why Army crews now rely on an ingenious explosive vacuum chamber to burn these deadly weapons to harmless ash.
One of the remarkable things about the Assad regime is the veneer of tasteful normalcy that surrounds his family’s public image, from a glowing Vogue feature on Asma al-Assad to their boring Instagram presence. That aura extends to the presidential palace, which was built by Kenzō Tange — the Pritzker Prize-winning architect who designed some of Japan’s most recognisable buildings. Who knew evil could look so banal?
After months of toeing the “red line” set by US president Obama regarding the use of chemical weapons against his own civilian population, Syrian president Bashar al-Assad’s regime has seemingly been caught killing more than 300 Syrian civilians and sickening over 1000 more in a suspected sarin nerve gas attack. The US has already considered its air strike options. There won’t be an attack for now, but here’s how the US could do it if the time comes.
