    Oh, they'll be back, not to worry. Partisanship is a dreadful problem though. Perhaps, no never mind.

The rebels used the gas, and gosh, they fooled AP or own AP, as is the more likely case. War is good business. OIL in Syria. Nice port on the Med. Great pipeline route. The first profits of war go to the energy corporations like Exxon/Mobil, Chevron, BP, Total, etc. because wars run on energy and if new resources fall into the energy corporations hands as a result of the war, they will profit again. Any competent marketing department would push for new war/wars at every opportunity. Oh Wait. Wars aren't about OIL Wait, lobby money from BIG Energy corporations to politicians isn't the same as bribes.
    Judging by your snark level in that post, it might come as a surprise to you that I'm not for this pending war and I'm not buying the propaghanda being pushed right now and I don't believe any war in the M.E. is far from oil as it's hidden reason or a GRREEEAAAAT "side benefit" of a war there. To me this looks like Gulf of Tonkin all over again or Bush Sr's bull**** about Saddam throwing babies out of incubators into the streets prior to Gulf War I or Rumsfeld's bullcrap of WMD's ("They're in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad and east, west, south, and north somewhat").

    I'm just not buying it. We haven't been told the truth leading us into any war since WWII and even that sell was suspect.

    That being said, Russia has been an Assad ally for all this time that Assad has been our enemy. Syria has been a major foothold for Russia in the M.E. They want to keep that foothold with their buddy Assad. That combined with the stranglehold Putin and the like have on their media and any information over there makes that source of yours suspect.

    Why, yes it does show that. And when you look at the numbers most sent, the type of troops most sent and the type of missions most were sent out to do, the facts show they were going through the motions. Their heart wasn't and isn't in it.

    You're correct. It would give that media about the same credibility as US Mainstream Media.

    Bush " went it " after the Democrats voted to go to war, after Clinton in 98 made repeated threats to use force if Saddam didn't curtail his growing WMD program.

    The false narrative that "Bush lied " has been thoroughly debunked on this forum.

    Perhaps, or the diplomats were warmongers spouting the gov't line. Now looking for a place to hide their shame.

    http://www.informationclearinghouse....ticle36000.htm

    "
    According to the source, Russia’s ambassador in the UN Security Council, Vitaly Churkin, presented conclusive evidence – based on documents and Russian satellite images – of two rockets carrying toxic chemicals, fired from Douma, controlled by the Syrian “rebels”, and landing on East Ghouta. Hundreds of “rebels”, as well as civilians – including those children on the cover of Western corporate media papers – were killed. The evidence, says the Russian source, is conclusive. – Pepe Escobar

    August 27, 2013 "Information Clearing House - "williambowles " - Shattering news if indeed it’s true, that it was two missiles fired by rebels from a place called Douma in the suburbs of Damascus, which is indeed under rebel control, that did the damage. No wonder the Empire is in a panic to go to war if it gets out that it was actually the side its arming and supporting that caused such horrendous loss of life!

    The mad, panic-driven desire to destroy being exhibited by the USUK maybe the reason for the drive toward war as it will (hopefully) obscure and relegate to history what actually took place. The threat of war on Syria is some terrible psychopathic sideshow and well within the remit of the barbarians, who it is clear will stop at nothing to achieve their objectives. Unless stopped.

    If what Escobar reports (and another source, see below) is really true, then it means that the rebels actually did kill hundreds of people, including its own soldiers! Maybe even a thousand or more. No wonder the West doesn’t want it to be investigated! The UN inspection team has no remit to try and find out who is actually responsible, just whether some kind gas attack took place.

    All that guff about, ‘it’s too late, Assad has gotten rid of the evidence’ or, ‘you should have let us in earlier’, is just a smokescreen. What the West HAS to do, is try and cover it up, like they did to the thousands of Iraqi troops who were bulldozed in their trenches, alive, buried in sand.

    More Confirmation

    Below is a short promo of an interview with an Syrian activist confirming the report made by Pepe Escobar above. It’s on the Boiling Frogs website but you need a paid subscription to view the entire video, which is a bit of a drag. And I’d like to see the satellite images and any accompanying information. Why aren’t the Russians making a bigger play of the information they allegedly have? IT could stop this war thing in its tracks!"
