I would think that it will normally take more time than that for a "retaliatory" attack.
It's a bit tangential, but it will be interesting to find out who used the chemical agent. The last "big story" involving chemical agents in Syria ended up to have, let's say, "inconclusive" results.
It would seem to me, that in light of current developments, It wouldn't be in Assad's best interest to stirr the international outrage pot. There are other factions that might be more interested in the international community not wanting to deal with Assad.
On the other hand... Assad hasn't got much to lose in terms of PR.
