I finally got to see the images from the chemical weapons attack at Douma.  The correspondent said they are "horrific," but you be the judge.  Here's the first:

So, what is that guy doing there? Is he spraying something into the kid's eye? That's what it looks like. But, what could it be? I would assume that if the kid got a chemical in his eye, they'd flush his eye. This is from the Mayo Clinic: 

Chemical splash in the eye

f a liquid, powder or aerosol chemical splashes into your eye, take these steps immediately.

  1. Flush your eye with water. Use cool tap water for at least 15 minutes, following whichever of these approaches is quickest:
    • Get into the shower and hold the lids of your affected eye or eyes open. Aim a gentle stream of water on your forehead over your affected eye. Or direct the stream on the bridge of your nose if both eyes are affected.
    • Put your head down and turn it to the side. Then hold the lids of your affected eye open under a gently running faucet. If you have access to a work site eye-rinse station, use it.
    • Young children may do best if they lie down in the bathtub or lean back over a sink. Pour a gentle stream of water on the forehead over the affected eye or on the bridge of the nose to flush both eyes. Hold their eyelids open.

So, I have no idea what that guy is doing or how it could be helpful. 

So, that's the kid afterwards. Now you see, I don't get that. Why would he would he keep his eyes closed? I would think that he would open them to see if he can still see and maybe look for his parents. Maybe blink a few times? Why would he keep his eyes shut? 

So now we move on to another kid. He's getting the eye treatment too. 

I can't imagine what that guy is doing that could be the least bit helpful. He's got his hand in a fist. So, what's he doing? Is he holding something? An instrument? But, why would he hold it like that?

Here's the kid afterwards. Same thing: he doesn't want to open his eyes.

I told you: the natural thing in that situation is to open your eyes: to test them; to see if they still work. How odd that both kids would do that, keep their eyes shut. Do you think maybe somebody told them to? 

Then, a while later, his eyes are still closed. But why? Are they irritated? But natural thing is start blinking your eyes; you don't hold them shut. 
Supposedly, chlorine and sarin gas were used. Shouldn't we be seeing more effects than this? We're not actually seeing any effect at all. He just has his eyes closed. How does his skin look? Are you seeing any irritation? I'm not. 

There's one more victim being treated, a girl.

What is he doing? Is he washing her hair? That's part of emergency treatment? 

And now what? He's washing her back? Why not just take her someplace where she can take a shower? This video horrified the world, did it? That's what the newscaster said. I gotta sit down.
