Disarming Syria's Chemical Stockpile

The United States and Russia agreed to give up chemical weapons, and more than 15 years later the job of destroying them is still not done. That effort will be far more difficult in Syria where weapons inspectors will have to work in the middle of a brutal civil war.  Nic Robertson reports.

    I'm a Canadian and am watching with great interest the Syrian situation. On many news reports I hear condemnation or "dropping the ball" comments regarding Obamas handling of the situation. In my opinion he has done an exempliary job in a very difficult global situation. Obama is dealing with Assad whose track record does not garner trust and credibility. Assad has gone from having NO chemical weapons to giving then to UN. He overtly lied and now wants us to believe his word. Assad is a fool at best.

    Obama is handling this situation the only way he could. I would be honored to have him as Prime Minister of Canada.
    The one we have is a bit of a buffoon and another liar.

    If the "chemical weapons" Assad has used on his own people are not dealt with immediately and not on Assad and Putins timeline then Obama must do as he had originally planned. Russia and Syria MUST be responsible globally or they are simply liars.

    Thank you Mr. Obama for having the courage to do what is needed.
