New Tests Indicate Sarin Used In Syria Attack

British Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Boris Johnson has said Britain could join US air strikes against the Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria despite a previous vote in the parliament against it.

"It is my belief, though I stress no such decision has yet been taken, that were such a request to be made in future, were it to be a reasonable request in pursuit of similar objectives, then I think it would be very hard for the United Kingdom to say no", Johnson said.

Earlier this month the U.S. fired 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airbase which was suspected of launching a chemical attack and they have threatened further action.

In an address to parliament, Johnson told MPs that the United Kingdom could join the U.S.in airstrikes against the Assad regime.

Underlining an open support for USA strikes, Johnson claimed it helped "create an opportunity to break the deadlock" and pave the way for a political settlement and a truce, following a succession of failed cease-fires.

The UK has yet to follow the Donald into Syria, but has backed his actions in launching attacks on "monster" Assad.

Weighing in on the implications of the United States strike, which he praised as an "emphatic message" by the USA administration, he alleged that it "has changed the terms of trade" in Syria and lay foundation for "political change".

'The essential thing will be to have a political process that preserves the institutions of the Syrian state while decapitating the monster'.

Both of these call into serious question whether Assad was indeed responsible for the most recent attack, and Postol's assessment also questions who was the perpetrator of the attack on August 23, 2013, that led to the agreement by Assad to rid his government of chemical weapons.
