Thousands Treated After Chemical Attack

On Wednesday, the Syrian government allegedly used chemical weapons on civilians in a Damascus suburb. Evidence for the use of illegal weapons is piling up, with one more incriminating piece added on Saturday. Doctors Without Borders, known by its French acronym MSF, released the number of patients the organization saw in Damascus that day, stating that approximately 3,600 patients showed signs of neurotoxocity. Symptoms included respiratory distress, blurred vision and even convulsions. Of those displaying symptoms, 355 died. Obama's red line, it seems, is becoming clearer by the day.
