The 'red line' drawn by the US over chemical weapons usage is a standard not applied to Syrian rebels, despite the same 'red line' being used for the Syrian government, Abayomi Azikwe, editor of the pan-African news wire, tells RT.
The US is conveniently ignoring accusations that the Syrian rebels themselves might have engaged in crimes against humanity, while throwing blame at Syria for unproven chemical weapon use to justify further military, political and diplomatic pressure against the Syrian government.
