#1 It was an American officer who said that pound for pound, you can kill more people with high explosives than you can with chemical weapons. I don't understand what the heck these guys are doing, but it's just nuts. You get a lot more political flak for using chemical weapons, but actually kill less people. You gotta conclude that the quality of the jihadist leadership is spiraling downwards.

perhaps they understand the bias and competence level of our Media better than we expect (or do, our selves?)? They know they'll never be called on it by the MSM and talking heads

They are counting on 1) the terrorizing effect of chemical weapons, and that 2) the liberal Western press will ignore Jihadi war crimes.
