Weapons of Mass Deception
And suddenly now there is such weapons were used - and the drums of war are beating. But where is the proof that it was the Syrian government forces that deployed them?
When other news stories were taking away attention from the Syrian revolt and no US aid to rebels forthcoming, the ones with most to gain by such an attack were the rebels themselves, and such weapons are not hard to find or use. Deciding to gas a few civilians for US support would be a small price to pay for rebels, but ineffective and suicidal for Assad and his boys.
I am not a big fan of any [tin-pot] dictator who lives large while his people go wanting, but we were already lied to once by that moron George Bush to avenge his fathers indignity and declare war against Saddam Hussein. Thousand of Soldiers and tens of thousand civilian died. The country was destroyed while large US corporations moved in to scoop up the resources; and it is not over yet!
Knowing that The First casualty of War is Truth and the belief that Sacrifices Must be Made for Victory , finding out who really deployed the gas attacks should be a priority, before ANY action is taken first.
Maybe Assad did launch a gas attack, but I don't smell gas; I smell a rat. Beware !
