War in Syria offers no easy answers

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

Why is killing and maiming with chemical weapons worse than killing and maiming with conventional weapons?

Do we go to war and kill people because the Syrian government is killing with chemical weapons rather than conventional ones? Is there any logic to just watching people kill each other with conventional weapons but joining the killing when one side uses chemical ones?

What should we do when both sides use them?
