    Not sure if I should bother changing the title further.

    Thank you for your information.

    If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.

      barking up the wrong tree.  :)

      Nobody sold Syria any "ingredients to make chemical weapons". Most of the chemical companies on earth--British, French, German and American--sold plain ole ordinary industrial chemicals to Syria, which Syria then used to produce chemical weapons.  It's like Walmart selling me Draino, which I then use to make crystal meth.

      The implied message of your diary, is simply wrong.

      •  That's why I put ingredients in quotes (0+ / 0-)

        Becaue technically they are ingredients. And technically they were sold to Syria. But your explanation is very good. Thank you.

          I shall cease fire.

          :)

          Make no mistake---British, French, German and American companies DID sell Syria everything it needed to produce its own chemical weapons, just as they did Libya, Iraq, and a few others. They just didn't know that's what they were doing, since it was all just plain ole ordinary industrial chemicals and/or ordinary pesticide-manufacturing equipment.
