      and I will look. There was one statement from the UN that they might have, but no solid evidence was presented, to my knowledge. I'm open to evidence.

      It doesn't change the point, anyway. I'm not necessarily for the rebels. I'm against chemical warfare.

        There are currently FOUR UN labs testing this evidence, and preparing a narrative of where the chemicals came from. I certainly understand why we're all suspicious of our government, but it's not healthy or helpful to take an "always wrong" position. They might be right.

          but have they here? That's not evidence of this, it's conjecture.

          I'm not closed to it, but I have yet to see what points that way.

            theory but hearsay, some of which was admittedly supplied by the least credible source as to Syria.

            •  I disagree (0+ / 0-)

              but in honesty have to go (again!) and can't provide links right now. I think there's far more than heresay, and I think the evidence of Assad using chemical weapons is fairly solid (not "proof", but solid evidence) unless the admin is actually lying. I can never rule out that they're lying, granted, but I kind of doubt it in this case, for multiple reasons.
