  •  Someone knows the context? All I've seen (0+ / 0-)

    is propaganda over the years. Remember WMD in Iraq?

    And there's US strategy to destabilize/conquer Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Iran, and one other place, which has been public knowledge since PNAC.

      For context.

        raided Syrian arms stores from it. For example.

        •  you have a fast connection so you dont have 2 wait (0+ / 0-)

          for context.

          Read the link I posted. Don't click on the videos. Jusr read.

          •  Yeah I read. One claim. Then below that (0+ / 0-)

            another claim from Russia about rebels firing a missile with an unknown payload. Not that there was any connection between this crime against humanity and the Russian report.

            I'm just saying: I see MENA on the banner up there and I remember how a lot of criminally false statements about Iraq and other scenes have come from there.

            We all know there's been a propaganda arm pushing for direct US involvement in Syria since 1995 or so.

            We also know, according to one of the Joint Chiefs, that involvement there would be a quite literally, insane, for the US.

            Without you can show me video of Asad forces launching the shit, I'm not for beating any drums. And you know what? Fuck, even if you could show me that, I'll go along with common sense and say, "let other nations work out their civil affairs."

            I'm tired of the US being an effective ally of al qaeda: recruiting sergeant through the Muslim world; Libya, Iraq, and Syria as places where our enemies have gained footholds when they had none.

            Our foreign policy is being run by lunatics. And I mean, technically, lunatics in the same way water is wet.

            •  "A missile." (0+ / 0-)

              I saw the video. Looks like a kassam rocket, one of those makeshift things you use cast iron pipes to make. Not something that will reliably deliver enough sarin to kill 1300 people.

              In the mean time, that part of Damascus was being mortared to bits, by the Syrian army. That same army that does happen to have mortar shells designed to deliver sarin gas.

              Put 2 and 2 together here.

              If you spend your time trawling websites for "cui bono" bullshit instead of learning a little bit about the weaponry being used in this war, you'll fall down a rabbit hole.
