Syria crisis: no option off
the table, says Hammond

'Last week British spy chiefs warned that Syria's arsenal of chemical weapons could fall into the hands of al-Qaida militants if Assad was toppled, with potentially "catastrophic" consequences.'

How much more catastrophic than Assad using them? And if you want them under responsible control, give arms to those who will most responsibly control, and hopefully, get rid of them. It might be remarked that most ex-Soviet countries have got rid of their nuclear weapons.
