Default Does US have chemical weapons stockpiles?

I see Obama and Kerry beating their chests about chemical weapons usage and I wondered if the US has chemical weapon stockpiles and the obvious follow on question would Obama be willing to use them if they existed.

If anybody actually knows whether we have chemical weapons, they're sure as hell not going to say so here. Similarly, if somebody here says they know, you can take it to the bank that they don't.

No, Obama will not use them if we have them. Even Bush probably wouldn't have done it.

We don't need chemical weapons.

We have plenty of NUKES.

Good point. The nukes are bountiful and there is no international ban against using them on the US's enemies.

Laser guided smart bombs. A few of those strategically placed will get the job done.

I don't think the laser guided bombs are enough unless you're talking about taking out the leaders. My opinion is that Obama wants/ed to take on the Iranians through his cruise missile attack on the Syrians. I think He hoped to incite Iran to attack Israel. The US could then come to the aid of Israel with the support of the US Congress. His strategy has gone awry. I'll bet we hear that he is giving serious thought to Syrian chemical weapons under UN control
as he says he is not removing the bombing of Syria without Congressional sanction as an option from the table.

Interesting. My thought was that Obama wanted to cripple the Syrian ability to use chemical weapons by striking certain sites. Now if you say he's looking for the domino effect that by striking Syria, that will in turn incite Iran to attack Israel then yes that is something more than smart bombs can do. I certainly hope none of this happens.

Default US still has chemical weapons but is destroying them...

Wall Street Journal article update on US chemical weapons on September 12, 2013. says US has chemical weapons at Bluegrass Army Depot in Kentucky and Pueblo Chemical depot in Colorado. Weapons destruction at Bluegrass is scheduled for 2033.

It seems that the actual weapons are not the biggest problem. The component chemicals for the weapons are available commercially. This means that renagade rebels jihadists can put together the chemical weapons. No treaties bind them to not use them.

Default Israel has not signed chemical weapons ban treaty...why not?

The US catpaw in the Middle East has not signed chemical weapons ban treaty.
Why not? Would the Israelis resort to chemical weapons if they wanted to?
