White House statement - this via Reuters:

  • US says it has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by Syrian government
  • US says preparations similar to those made before April 4 chemical weapons attack - White House
  • US says if Syria's Assad conducts another attack using chemical weapons, "He and his military will pay a heavy price" - White House

Let's hope nothing comes of this, very nasty indeed.


This could dampen 'risk' spirits somewhat
