IS Crosses the Red Line

I dunno maybe IS thought since the Turks were bombing the Kurds they could get away with it.

Mr. Obama are you going to let IS get away with it?

The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil) used mustard agent in its fight against a Kurdish militia in Syria, testing has confirmed.

Unnamed US government officials involved in investigating alleged chemical weapon use by Isil in the northeastern Syrian city of Hasakeh confirmed mustard gas had been used, according to the Washington Post and CNN.

Mustard gas, used during World War One, can cause blisters, blindness and respiratory damage and is an internationally-banned chemical weapon.

Last month, members of a Syrian Kurdish militia, the People's Defence Units or YPG, reported that projectiles fired by Isil's jihadists had released "a yellow gas with a strong smell of onions."

I mean the American people are supposed to be friends of the Kurds, we're not going to let IS do what Saddam and Chemical Ali did.

Are we?
