BBC has the story. Oxblog has the following quote from Mr. Ali,

I will kill them all with chemical weapons! Who is going to say anything? The international community? F_ck them! the international community, and those who listen to them!… I will not attack them with chemicals just one day, but I will continue to attack them with chemicals for fifteen days.

As Glenn points out,

With this quote, and with the nickname “Chemical Ali,” I’d hate to be his defense lawyer.

    Yeah, but I would love to be his record agent. I figure this guy would go Top of the Pops, bumping out 50 Cent in no time.
