Those Crazy Chemical Weapons

After Albania blushed and declined the invitation to host the destruction of Syria's chemical weapons in its country, there has been some talk of destroying them in a lab in the middle of the ocean somewhere. The great isolation of the lab would be for safety's sake.

It made me wonder what would have happened if Senators McCain and Graham had had their way, and the US Air Force had bombed the chemical weapons on site in Syria. I mean, it was not like being out in the middle of the ocean somewhere, and just how much delicate control does a chemical weapons lab technician have when the instrument of choice is a bomb dropped from an airplane?

How many Syrian lives were to be forfeit for the Syrian rebels and their supporters?
