    You havent shown your citation yo my questions.

    3. The chems were withdrawn from an Assad facility, without resistance. The US claims photo evidence of this.
    4. The rockets were prepared, assembled and launched from ~10 different locations within Assad territory, without resistance.
    Where is this at?

    why should I waste my time doing your homework... I mean search for where I found that at... again... if you won't show me where in your linked material where that is at?

    I asked first.

    Those numbers exist. I didn't pull them out my ass like you did with your claims #3 and #4. I also remember how to find them again. Not going to bother since you can't back up your claims.

    Think about it. The US letter even admits it isn't certain. What percentage do you want it to mean? 90%? 95%? 99%?

    Without certainty it can still be wrong!

    Do you mean like theses exist in your mind:

    1. The rebels do not have those rockets.
    2. The rebels do not have sarin.
    3. The chems were withdrawn from an Assad facility, without resistance. The US claims photo evidence of this.
    4. The rockets were prepared, assembled and launched from ~10 different locations within Assad territory, without resistance.

    It is also "not known" by you, how many twenty dollar bills I have in my wallet! Does that mean I don't have any?

    Not known to be in rebel hands, does not mean they don't have any.

    That's a climate change working group report.

    The standard terms used to define levels of confidence in this report are as given in the IPCC Uncertainty Guidance Note, namely:
    That has nothing to do with the report in question.

    Further, it contradicts his numbers.

    Very high confidence At least 9 out of 10 chance
    If that's where he got his numbers, he's being dishonest about them. The report in question specifies that the confidence is just below "confirmation", thus it is the highest degree of confidence, not 8/10 (the second highest, in the IPCC report).


    Anyone could pull a random report and apply different standards. That's ridiculous.

    You made the claim of 8/10, you show us where you got that. According to the IPCC working group report (which has nothing to do with this), the highest level of confidence below "confirmed" is 9/10, not 8/10.
