Lt. Col. Ralph Peters On The Slippery Slope Of Letting Bashar al-Assad Get Away With Using Chemical Weapons

The suspected chemical attack killed dozens of people on Tuesday, Syrian opposition activists said, describing the attack as among the worst in the country's six-year civil war.

Fox News Strategic Analyst Lt Col. Ralph Peters (Ret.) explained to the John Gibson Show that we cannot allow Syria's use of chemical weapons stand because if we do it opens the door for rogue states to use chemical and biological weapons against our troops and eventually nuclear weapons. Peters does not want us to put boots on the ground but says we must make sure Assad feels pain and to accomplish that we need to launch an airstrike against his air force.
