I am a war veteran. Not the type that you think. I was in the Russian military. However, all war veterans share one thing in common; we all pay close attention to other conflicts. In doing so, I have learned these things about the Syrian War. If you dislike or disagree that is okay with me, but keep in mind how much you had to pay to read the truth. Nothing. Anyway, the Syrian Opposition is hardly Syrian. They are Jihadists from all over the region. In 1991, there was a true popular uprising in Iraq, and your prez at the time encouraged and then let the rebels be slaughtered. American foreign policy makes no sense, but then neither does the nation itself, and many of the drug-ridden, alcoholic, cowardly populace. The last time the "red-line" was crossed, it was the "rebels" shooting chemical weapons. Flash-forward to today; Al-Assad has been winning battle after battle for months, retaking lost territories. Why would he now use chemicals? He's winning without them. It is the "rebels" that did this latest attack as well, evidenced by the fact that Al-Assad (God bless his heart) is allowing the Jew-N to come and check things out for themselves. Don't be naive, Americans. Don't let the Jews get you into another war for them. Obama, boy you ready to give that Peace Prize back yet? Ask Ghaddafi about what a peaceful man he is.

Just like 9/11 was an inside job??!! Go sell crazy somewhere else!!
I'm just curious (and this is a serious question). Having been in the SOF (Special Operations Forces), when you retire and are debriefed, do they have a special demagnetizer that empties your brain because if so, you'd be the proof in the pudding.

BTW: 9/11 was exactly what it was reported to be. No inside job seekers need apply.

"Boston terror suspects uncle was married to CIA officer's daughter and even shared a home with the agent."
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-23159...
After the Boston Marathon bombings, it was revealed that Fuller's daughter Samantha Ankara Fuller was married to Ruslan Tsarnaev (Tsarni), the terrorists' uncle.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graham_Fuller
And since most of the mainstream media avoids references to Graham Fuller/Tsarnaev, we have the following:
http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/friction/...
Radicalization of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
"Friction" mechanisms at work and the Russian/CIA connections
The CIA Connection
Tamerlan and Dzhokhar have an uncle, first identified as a lawyer living in the D.C. area, who told journalists that his bomber nephews were just ‘losers.’ Uncle Ruslan Tsarni (formerly Tsarnaev) is a lawyer with some interesting connections. He married Samantha Ankara Fuller in the 1990s when both were students in North Carolina’s Research Triangle; they seem to have been divorced by 2004. Samantha Fuller is the daughter of Graham Fuller, whose career in the CIA brought him in 1986 to the position of Vice-Chairman of the National Intelligence Council under Ronald Reagan. In 1999 Graham Fuller was forwarding the idea of supporting Sunni militants against Russia and China, a policy that produced first the Russian retreat from Afghanistan and then the ‘blowback’ problem of Al Qaeda.
Ruslan Tsarni was more than errant son-in-law to Graham Fuller. When Tsarni incorporated the Congress of Chechen International Organizations in 1995, he gave his father-in-law’s home address in Maryland on the corporation paperwork. Later Tsarnaev worked two years for USAID in Kazakhstan, and in recent years he has been employed by one or more oil companies with interests in Kazakhstan oil fields.
Since your conspiracy theory has been proven wrong with 9/11 NOW you change your tune and start with the Boston bombing. SHUT UP YOU ARE NUTS AND DON'T WASTE MY TIME!

LOL

What 9/11 conspiracy theory have I ever pushed? I'll tell you - NONE.

RE: Boston. I only cited established facts pertaining to the uncle's marriage to the daughter of a major CIA figure, leaving readers perfectly free to make their own inferences.

Time to take your geritol, old timer. Your neurotransmitters are going haywire and melding all your protagonists into one foggy bowl of conspiratorial mush.

I'm very productive, thank you. So productive, in fact - that I've earned the luxury (and pleasure of course) of exchanging insightful commentary with the likes of you (LOL), while overseeing my very profitable business ventures, not to mention my very hefty tax contributions destined to curing the "mess we're in", as you say.

How about you? Pension all it's cracked up to be?

i must disagreefor the following reasons
regular shells and rockets can carry the stuff to its target but cant spread it efficiently in the air.
regular proximity detonators can't do it and the result is poor at best, some will vaporize in heat of explosion and rest is limitied to area of hit
second, it's in the news. Russia and/or china objected in UN council the wording of declaration to actively prob the case
further more: the inspectors are currently in Damascus ,the scene is a suburb of Damascus, if noone objects, why aren't the inspectors allowed there?
at least a declaration of the regime saying that they are willing to cooperate in investigation would be a good start, but none issued.
When it comes to the inspectors, they can only do or investigate exactly what the UN told them to do or investigate. For example, in Damascus, their mandate was to determine IF chemicals had been used. That's all. They could not investigate who did it or where they came from or anything except IF. They did their jobs and came back home. Now, they are being sent back under a different mandate to determine who did it or something like that. This time they cannot investigate IF. That has already been done under a different mandate. See, the scope of what they can do is always very limited. That is the way it should be.

But when the UN authorizes the US to impose a "no fly zone" what happens? There is "mission creep". They overthrow the government of Libya and all that. They even bombed the irrigation system. They just went ape and took full advantage. They punked the UN. They used the UN as a cover to lynch black people and commit all kinds of war crimes.

Now they want a mandate to attack Syria or possibly Iran. They will not get it because nobody trusts them anymore. They abused the trust the UN gave them. used
