There is a slight, to say the least, spanner in the works of this plan... Before the chemicals can be loaded at the port of Latakia they need to travel more than 250 kms from Damascus via the M5 Highway. Possible dangers are : IED's; Snipers; RPG's; Mortar Fire; SAM's and throw in a few possible suicide bombers etc. Will Sigrid Kaag lead the convoy ? Modern day "Wages of Fear" on crack for the drivers perhaps ? Questions, questions, questions... Another move needs to be made before safe passage is possible for the trucks. And what would that move be I hear you say. A conference ! BTW, the Geneva II proposal is seriously flawed. Another city, more central to the Middle East is required as the venue...
