Does it say that in your newspapers over there in UK? Does people in UK believe that Assad really used the deadly gas against his own?
We have a f***n weak Swedish criminal, his name is Åke Sellström. He is the one who is top chief in the UN investigation. Swedish newspapers and other news agencies tried to interview him yesterday, to ask if the Rebels are more suspected to have used the deadly gas. The only thing the fricking guy is answering is "I can't speak with you". Tfoo he's payed by the West to get FAKE evidence to the UN to make way for the West to make another Libya. We need to hit the streets to demonstrate against this madness, this is NOT okay anymore..

http://www.thepaperboy.com/uk/i-newspaper/fro... the link shows the sort of headline in most Newspapers today,the Media are complicit in the war crimes,they are no more than an organ of State Propaganda,what shocked me was when those criminals destroyed Libya most people in Britain didn't say a damn thing,when the War criminal Blair went into Iraq over a million people marched in London,it didn't make one bit of difference,all this started with the attack on the former Yugoslavia which was also illegal and they have been breaking the UN charter and International Law ever since,they are out of control,if you look at the time line its two years since Libya was destroyed,the Reich moved onto Syria just after that,if they get away with Syria next will be Iran,there Terrorist proxy army has been taking a hell of a beating that's why this Chemical bullshit has been blown up,now is the time for the Russians and Iran to send a message that any Nato attack on Syria won't be tolerated without a price to pay.

When the US/west have already made their mind, it's not about chemical use. It's a pretext to destroy Syria - the ally of Iran and Hezbollah. Morally wrong. Obama needs advisers who actually advise about sovereignty and civilian deaths.

Stay strong Syria.

Well, the White House Spokeswoman was asked if it was also the UN's belief that the rebels have no access or means to deliver chemical weapons and she blurted out 'yes'. First of all, the UN mandate is to gather and analyze evidence, not to issue such remarks and second of all, that's an a priori judgment. Either she lied or the inspection team is a 'tainted jury' and besides not being a 'jury', should immediately be replaced as tainted.

The problem with such idiotic comments is that it clearly demonstrates that, although we have a clearly defined legal code concerning rules of evidence, our government time and time again, acts as if it never existed in these situations. Little wonder that it refused to sign on to the ICC.

The assumption is the syrians don t have the means to defend themselves. I believe their capabilities under reported Assad poker player has decided to raise the stakes He is a dictator but why would he invite intervention and military attacks? This is not consistent with his policies. The decision to gas civilians to remove all from a particular area must have been from an acute sense of desperation, loss, or unchecked aggression, and impatience. I don t understand the reasoning unless there is more twisted calculus and someone has gone on record to affirm the Syrian regime can handle a western attacks,or will support and resupply, Iran gets to take notes, I don t see the payoff so perhaps it is a case of insanity produced by a crumbling war effort, I dont know only Assad knows.

That question has been asked a thousand times and ignored a thousand and one times.

This is all a load of crap.

I don t think so. Give me a list of Assad chemical attacks with a 1000 casualties. Why would Assad risk intervention?
It was a poor move why the desperation or impatience. Did the attacks have the sanction at the highest level, My predictions have been on target over 2 years. You cannot dismiss my analysis, questions, or judgment which is much better than yours. Explain the situation in your words! How will the French, Us, and Brits attack and what targets?

Exactly my point. The accusation on its face is illogical, absurd frankly.

But the war dogs don't care. They need no proofs, simple appeals to emotion will do, always have, always will.

Americans are easily duped. We'll go to war over a doggie treat, or even a two-for-one coupon for one.

It's a feel good exercise for us, re-enforcing our sense of moral superiority, which comes in awfully handy when caught with our own hands in the cookie jar.

The Brits suffer from the same malaise. That's why we get on so well together.

I am ashamed of Obama especially. And I am ashamed of the entire gang in Washington. At best, this is a feeble attempt to save face after the humiliation in Egypt. This is just plain wrong.

My what a lovely Rat's Maze.

Where to begin?

The Saudis are doomed. They were always the junior power of the big three of islam. After a brief reign the shia and Turks took turns ruling them (with a heavy hand). They have survived since by being the pet dog of the US, Britain and France.
Iran will overwhelm them. So they are depending on their old enemy (but sunni ally) Turkey to save them. So they are sending their internal enemy AlQaida against Syria. Every AQ killed by Syria is one less the Saudis have to deal with.

Egypt is the linchpin of the ME, and Obama has turned it into a war zone. Whichever side Egypt goes with will win - which is why Obama and his cohorts are trying to pick who rules there.
Egypt leans toward Iran - Cairo was founded as the capital of a shia empire - which endured until the Turks took control.

Turkey huffs and puffs a lot, remembering their long dead empire - which the Russians ended. They too were pets of the British, French, and later the US - who have kept the Russians off them until now.
Russia is allied with their deadly foe - Persia. That is a powerful combo, and it is going to put the Turks and Saudis to the ground.

Which leaves the three stinkers, the US, Britain and France - former masters of Europe during the early NATO years.
Well they are crapping themselves watching Russia become the major economic and defense player of an evolving Europe, a combined superpower that would match the power of China.
A land of vast resources that can rescue the cranky Euros from their edge of starvation future.

A superpower the British and French don't want to take orders from; and that will dwarf the power of the US.

The winners will be the Russians and the Iranians.

The losers will be the US, Britain, France - and any foolish enough to side with them.

I Don't believe all this crap about Syria having done what our Government told the media to tell and show fake photos to us here in the states. if there were chemicals used, then it was probably used be someone else, or digitally made to make it seem like they did. I don't trust the media. they say what the Government tells them to say. besides our Government has no right talking about the use of chemicals. they used it on the U.S troops in Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm. and here over U.S soil by spraying us with chemicals called CHEM-TRAILS
