CBS Evening News just showed a picture of what a Syrian said was a gas missile that landed on an apartment roof.
It was only visible for five seconds.

It was a yellow nose casing that looked like it was made from fiberglass. There were no control surfaces, markings or warnings, canards, labels, access panels, impact damages, safe/arming controls, arming wire, or anything to lead me to believe it was a missile.

Only an idiot would believe that was an actual offensive weapon.

Someone is framing the Syrian government.

That is a tank that held some type of gas, anything from Acetylene, Propane to VX but it no missile.

Humm, drop that from a plane and hope it lands on the valve. Weapon of mass destruction, yes. Missile, no.

Not a jet fighter. There are old practice bomb racks that hold the store with bungi cords, but it's for very small practice bombs only, about the size of a large bowling pin.
There are no lugs on that bottle(?)to snap into a regular bomb rack.

Something else. Without a drogue chute, that would just tumble with no way to insure what hits the ground first.

If we are to believe the quote from the lady in the article, we have confirmation the islamists we a tacitly supporting are using them as human shields. Something all reasonable people have understood for years.

We can choose to believe the totally unsupported claims of evidence that Assad gassed these people, but it simply make a hell of a lot more sense to suspect the muslim radicals that want to turn Syria into an islamic state.

Could that tank have contained Chlorine?

Open the valve and drop from airplane to spread the contents on the ground.

Chlorine is nasty stuff. Once met a WWI vet who had lung damage from it.

I suppose, if it was launched through the air, it meets the basic definition of "missile".

"Also he [David] bade them teach the children of Judah [the use of] the bow" -Samuel
