  •  Here is what Bild am Sonntag says: (0+ / 0-)
    Laut den Erkenntnissen der Abhör-Spezialisten wurden die von den Kommandeuren verlangten Giftgas-Angriffe stets abgelehnt und der Einsatz vom 21. August wahrscheinlich nicht von Assad persönlich genehmigt.
    I don't speech or read German but here is how it was translated for me
    According to the findings of the monitoring specialists requested by the commanders were poison gas attacks and always rejected the use of 21 August probably not personally approved by Assad.
    Looking up the word wahrscheinlich - it means probably. If one wanted to say "certainly," "very likely," "in all probability," or even "quite likely," the phrase would be sehr wahrscheinlich. So I will stick with German intelligence doesn't think he personally ordered it but they do not know that for a fact.

    As to regime change, all I have heard the President say is that we are not seeking regime change. Maybe you can give me a link where he has said that military strikes in Syria would be for regime change.

    Again, Assad is the head of the military and government and the Syrian government is responsible for the actions the military takes. If he told them no, and they did it anyway, it does not make a rat's ass in whether or not to strike their missile capabilities. If the Joint Chiefs asked Obama to bomb Iran and he said no and this happened over and over, and yet the US military bombed Iran, would you say that Iran or their allies should not respond because the President of the US said not to do it?
