News of painful aggression of Assad’s forces on civilians residing in Rebel held areas are pouring in from all mainstream channels. Use of mass-killing weapons is indeed a dreadful act upon humanity and needs to be countered in the strictest manner; still we need to analysis the news from all sides before we make up our conclusions.

At least 640 people have been killed in a nerve gas attack on Syria’s Ghouta region, activists at the Syrian Revolution General Commission told Al Arabiya on Wednesday morning, as hundreds were also reported wounded. Al Arabia
We should remember that this is not the first time the Assad’s regime has been alleged for the use of chemical weapons, there has been allegations of one in Damascus in March and another in Homs in December, on the contrary the Assad regime has alleged the Rebels to have used chemical weapons in a pro-regime area outside Aleppo in March.
In April when Assad refused to allow entry to the UN observers for CWs, the issue was that Syria wanted the UN to investigate only the site it alleged to be the rebel chemical attack near Aleppo, when the UN team wanted approach to the other sites. It can be questioned why the UN missed the chance to at least check that one site, if it vows to represent all sides of humanity.
