    Osama Bin Laden hated Saddam, but he hated the idea of western troops on Saudi soil more.
    Tomahawks from ships out to sea are not infidels on their soil.

    Re: Rebels are to blame for gas attacks? (Syria)

    I have been informed by an acquaintance of mine with current middle east military knowledge that the blue canisters being fired in the video making the rounds is not a chem munition. it is instead a common "lob bomb", a sort of IED of the rocket world that is very common in Middle Eastern rebel forces.

    But this 107mm device is quite capable of firing chemical munitions.

That's how they got the whole Iraqi fiasco off the ground.

    Since WWII Democrats and progressives have traditionally tried to limit presidential war power and have traditionally tried to deliberate before taking military action. I don't think conservatives can say the same. The isolationist wing maybe, but isolationism is itself a poor ground for arguing against military action.
    I was all for attacking Syria and I was really pissed off at the UN and Obama for not acting. Now, I'm not sure who is the good guy.

    How about the Wall Street Journal and Russian intelligence? Is that good enough for you?

    Russia Says Syrian Rebels Used Sarin Gas - WSJ.com

    Russia said it has "clear" evidence that Syrian rebels fired a rocket laden with sarin gas at an Aleppo suburb in March, a view that clashed with U.S. conclusions on the same issue last month and was initially rejected Tuesday by Washington.
    Or how about from a left wing political porn site?

    Russia Says Syrian Rebels Used Sarin Gas - WSJ.com

    GENEVA, May 5 (Reuters) - U.N. human rights investigators have gathered testimony from casualties of Syria's civil war and medical staff indicating that rebel forces have used the nerve agent sarin, one of the lead investigators said on Sunday.

    What would make this real entertaining , is if they can prove that the Sarin is part of
    Saddam's stockpile of WMDs that he hid in Syria.

    Are you arguing that they've calculated the degree of response to a chemical false flag to that point and that they see a difference from a religious POV between western air strikes and western boots on the ground?

    The warmongers have their meme and their sticking to it. All sources to the contrary will be demonised and by the time it's obvious to everyone that it was wrong, it will be after the fact, the warmongers will have gotten what they wanted! IRAQ.

    NOTHING about war and WMD should ever be categorised as entertaining.

    No. I'm arguing that Assad is winning and they need help, even IF it did mean the presence of infidels for a time.

    Yeah, but how do they get Past the UN saying such a strike would be Illegal and that it would be aggression to go and help the Rebel Terrorists and attack Assad the Evil Dictator that doesn't do business with us.
