The gas attack was actually rather legitimate; the rebels were holded up in an urban stronghold that would be nearly impossible to crack without just turning it to rubble. The losses strikes would bring are negligible to retaking the entirety of the city.

Ignoring the rest of the slaughter and the FSA's many, many crimes that outnumber even the fascist Assad's crimes, however, is entirely bullshit and I agree with you there.

Chemical weapons are generally useful when you have an opponent already entrenched, and can outweigh any negatives.
