    Are you presenting the wrong report?
    I am not presenting the wrong report. I read the damn thing and even gave you a quote from it. Like I said, I will check the appendixes.

    Missiles were not even used in Damascus, rockets were.

    its also worth pointing out if Assad was innocent of firing chemcial weapons why would he give them up so easy to the international community? According to posters in here the chemical weapons were fired by the rebels, so why would Assad give up his weapons when his enemy are firing WMD'S at him?


    Massive admission of guilt.

    So, you didn't read the whole thing. And based on your partial reading, you claim CNN and the NYT is lying (and would easily be shown to be doing so).


    That's absurd.

    That is a strong argument for Western military intervention and UN supported transitional democratic governments.
    I think you need to take another look at conditions in all those countries post US interference. The US has helped nothing.

    I never claimed NYT or CNN was lying. Do yourself a favor and stop putting words in people's mouths.

    You are claiming they are lying. I've presented articles from them, from today, that claim specific rocket types were identified by the UN report and that the rebels are not known to have them or the training or ability to use them.

    Not really. Now your saying that chemical weapons were fired at Assad's forces! Russia is the deciding factor behind president Assad turning over chemical weapons. He doesn't need them anyway and can't maintain Chinese and Russian support if he used them.
