    Syria has recently broken a promise to be chemical weapon free. In private, the country has been creating WMDs and hiding them. When we suspected the non-tolerable weapons and inspected, they had moved all equiptmen to one of 23 sights. The U.S. has been to 21 of them. Most people have considered this the "most challenging mission ever" due to their cleverness and our fear of nuclear war breakout. However, on November 15th, a huge step will be made towards peace as we adress the plan to destoy the chemical weapons.

    This article relates to the last section of this standard due to the Invasion of Afghanistan. The Invasion of Afghanistan took place because we thought that they had been creating chemical weapons instead of Syria.
