The Syrian government has finally given UN inspectors a green light to investigate the site of an alleged poison gas attack in a Damascus suburb. But is it too little, too late? Is the die already being cast as Western capitals mull possible intervention against the regime of Bashar al-Assad? And how might Russia and Iran react if a coalition takes action without UN backing? Douglas Herbert and his guests look at a crisis where the options seem to be narrowing by the day.
