Good reply to chemical attack
I WISH to defend the US, British and French missile attacks on chemical weapon sites in Syria ( C-M, Apr 18).
Like many, I opposed the invasion of Iraq and the weapon inspectors’ failure to uncover any weapons of mass destruction.
But that is not the case with Syria. There have already been a number of documented cases by independent aid workers on the ground in Syria of chemical weapon attacks on citizens.
I’m glad the three Western nations have finally acted, because doing nothing and watching innocent civilians being killed indiscriminately is not an option.
But the Syrian Government and its Russia backer continue to deny that chemical weapons have been used.
They also continue to bar entry to inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons into Douma, where the chemical attack took place. Peter Pak, Rochedale South
