What test is that? Where is the proof it was Assad, and not the Rebels that ordered it, and neither can the man with the big big ears.

"The common-sense test says he is responsible for this. He should be held to account," McDonough said of the Syrian leader who for two years has resisted calls from inside and outside his country to step down."

MY common sense test tells me, among other things,'cui bono?" (who benefits?)

But what do I know, knowing every one of the 456 episodes of Law & Order by heart?

It was the rebels with the help of obamas MBH
It was was set up to look like Assad did it but stop and look at who the terrorist really are. Burning churches , beheading children , and eating people
You don't see Assad doing any of that

Sumptins real funny here,not the happy funny either. The U.N. has said it will take two weeks to determine where the gas came from, why? Why so long and what methods are they using? What sources of intel and is the intel actually intelligent? Honest? The Shadow knows....

Good questions, I've posted similar ones myself.

My COMMON SENSE TEST tells me that not all of these answers are privileged or 'secret' either. Either they think we're all idiots and not able to absorb such complex nuances as 'test methods' or they're brushing it all aside, which they've already stated they have anyway. What was their exact word?'irrelevant' and we know it all already?

The whole thing stinks to high heaven.

Common sense ? The US government is now talking about common sense to prove guilt , well where was all this common sense when bingauzi was attacked or the IRS was targeting and when the NSA was snooping on US citizens and lets not forget where was the common sense when voting for obama care with out reading it first .... If you want to talk about common sense , My common sense tells me that when it comes to Obama-goverment common sense is not common as you my think
Rebels / Muslim brother hood are the ones behind
The chemical attack . And with the way Obama is acting he may even have had a hand in it.

I may be mistaking but wasn't the Muslim brother hood in on the bingauzi attack and didnt we later learn that ground to air weapons taking from our embassy ?

it is nonsense and bs. This Assad and his officials didnĀ“t do it and it is sure. They have succeeded using conventional weapon. What a problem is it?
What insane lunatics rule in this usa? How do they politics look like:
1. 16 trillions in debts.Towns goes byncruptcy. Some idiots give money for them, it is well known that they cannot pay it back.
2. and wars: Iraq lies in ashes, Afghanistan lies in ashes ( 8 mln refugees ), Pakistan - condition very bad - 2 mln refugees and now Syria - already 2 mln refugees and it will come 2-4 mln more in case of attack.
What fuc..ing bastards are these criminals who rule there?

Whole idea behind attacking Syria is to rescue his Muslim Brotherhood beloved, he does not mind spending American dollars and lives to achieve that end. Hope Congress is not stupid or greedy enough to swallow his lies, he will try to buy votes with handouts, typical Liberal Democrat behaviour.

Even a W H Aide has admitted we lack irrefutable, beyond all reasonable doubt, proof that Assad is responsible for the gas attack. So how can we justify a missile attack? We can't. The military is against this, the American people are against this, and we have no allies.

This isn't funny anymore. Kerry, and Obama have made the United States the laughing stock in front of the whole world. They should both resign for incompetence. They look like people out of MADD magazine. (Comic book characters)

Obama has no proof. He is bluffing and lying. That is a very bad foundation for public policy.

I think Obama had to personally give the green light for that to happen while Congress was in recess. We know he is a gambler by nature.
