    I'd really like for our government to release the "proof" that they have in blaming the government for the attack.

    Yes, even Fox News (so infamous for being anti-Obama admin) is reporting the "Syrian government propaganda", and I'm not convinced that the Syrian government is behind it.

    The tactical objective was to give the appearance of crossing the red line so the Al Queda air force would bomb Assad. False flag operation. Prince Bandar, CIA, Turkey, France, Qatar, and who else is sponsoring Al Queda in Syria? The USA would be the instrument referred to as the Al Queda air force. Get a grip.

    yeah I mean it's not like jihadists care if they die or anything. They're careful people focused on their future. I wouldn't expect them to take any risks with dangerous weapons.

    Good evening, apdst.

    Perhaps they have succeeded in what they were trying to do. They are creating a problem for Assad! Are they planning a regime change, which would get rid of the current ruling faction and replace it with something else? Who knows what that might be? I cite Egypt as an example. In the meantime, the Mideast is in chaos! Who does that benefit? :

    Did I post anything about the Rebels using chemicals? Nope. But, let's see what possibilities we can come up with....

    1) Maybe the "rebels" used chemical weapons to try to get Fearless Leader to intervene on their behalf? Maybe they read The Hunger Games in which, you know, SPOILER
     
    Katniss' sister Prim is killed by the rebels attacking their own people to arouse anger among their own
    SPOILER

    2) Maybe there were no chemical weapons and the excuse for this war is just as fake as the Iraq war excuse was?

    3) Maybe Assad wants us to attack him so he used chemical weapons on innocent civilians for absolutely no tactical benefit?

    What do you think?
