Guardian Unlimited Observer | International | Siege rescue carnage as gas kills hostages

This is horrible. I knew going in that this would end badly, one way or another. There's no way the rebels were expecting to get out alive, and I have no doubt they were prepared to slaughter the entire crowd.
But they used valium gas? Killed over 100?
So, yet another country "gassing their own people". But then, they were taking out terrorists, unlike Iraq. Who was using it on Kurdish terrorists, er, rebels. Right? Surely that makes a difference?
The rank hypocrisy of this administration just keeps growing and growing. I'm not sure we can take another two years of these incompetents.
