LONDON (AP) -- Britain says it will put forward a resolution today to the U.N. Security Council condemning the Syrian government for the alleged chemical attack that has killed hundreds of civilians.

The decision came as momentum appeared to build for Western military action against Syria, with the U.S. and France saying they are in position for a military strike.

The prospect of a U.S.-led intervention into Syria's civil war stems from the West's assertion - still not endorsed by U.N. inspectors - that President Bashar Assad's government was responsible for an alleged chemical attack on civilians outside Damascus on Aug. 21, which Assad denies.

Doctors Without Borders says the attack killed 355 people.

" President Bashar Assad's government was responsible for an alleged chemical attack on civilians outside Damascus on Aug. 21, which Assad denies. Doctors Without Borders says the attack killed 355 people." What the Hell is Assad blaming it on? The flu?
