  •  Again, come up with a plausible story. (0+ / 0-)

    How did this happen? Did the FSA poison Eastern Ghouta with pyrethrin at the same time the SAA was shelling the place?

    •  Why do you believe that this is impossible? (1+ / 0-)

      The videos and eyewitness statements contain multiple instances where people claim to have been on the streets and going into peoples' houses to find dead people and/or people who were suffering distress - all while Syrian government forces were shelling the area.

      Lamb chop, we can quibble what to call it, but I think we can both agree it's creepy.

        Geez. What's more likely:

        1. people running around a bombardment area to collect the wounded and deliver them to hospital,

        or 2.people running around a bombardment area to inflict even more death and destruction, and then collect the dead and wounded and deliver them to a field hospital.

          considering what I have seen al-Nusrah do it is not by any means difficult for me to consider that al-Nusrah could have done this.

          •  Fascinating. (0+ / 0-)

            Given that they have a presence near the Israeli border, and yet are too scared to prevent locals from going to the ISraelis for medical treatment.

            And yet willing to treat the residents of Eastern Ghouta this way.

            Interesting.

              But considering your depth of knowledge that is probably asking too much.
