WMD used to justify yet another illegal intervention?

Did you hear how Susan Rice adamantly told the UNSC yesterday that the US/NATO resolution which Russia and China vetoed did not in the least authorize a military intervention and that the US had no such plans?

Here a headline from today's Jerusalem Post:
'US, Israel discuss destroying Syrian weapons'
The United States and Israel were in discussions over whether Israel should take out Syrian weapons facilities as the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad falters.
It appears that, yet again, the WMD canard will be used to justify a US-executed but Israeli-ordered illegal military intervention.

That would be almost comical if it was not so utterly disgusting.
