All this simply makes it easier for the U.S. to invade at a later date. Chemical weapons are a deterrent just as nuclear weapons are. Americans do not want too many coffins coming back home, and in a case of a chemical retaliation by defending forces, the coffins become a very likely cargo. By surrendering the weapons, Syria trades long-term defense capability for short-term diplomatic security. A very unwise move. The U.S. has never honoured international treaties where its own interests were concerned, neither shall it here. The agreement to give up the weapons makes Syria weaker and gives the U.S. the green light to send in more and more "insurgents" and later on to attack with their own troops if they wish.
