Russian site eyed for Syrian chemical weapons destruction

There’s a reason why Western officials are being nice to Moscow now — they want Russia to destroy Syria’s deadly arsenal on its own soil.

Detective work in Syria that was completed this week has allowed UN investigators to document some of the world’s worst suspicions.

There, the warhead sheared off, spreading a gas that quickly killed those who lived inside.
