    I get that chemical weapons are not nice at all however, what's the difference of this bloke using chemical weapons against his own people compared with using guns and bombs? Both kill people and both are terrible.
    It partly comes from its early uses in conflicts such as WW1. There's always been some unspoken code of what is sporting and unsporting in war (daft though that is). Also weapons that maim rather than kill have been looked down upon. Yes you can kill your enemy, but using weapons that make him suffer is a no no.
