Chemical weapons – more to the story?
“Syrian rebels in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta have admitted to Associated Press correspondent Dale Gavlak that they were responsible for last week’s chemical weapons incident which western powers have blamed on Bashar Al-Assad’s forces, revealing that the casualties were the result of an accident caused by rebels mishandling chemical weapons provided to them by Saudi Arabia.”
Follow up questions:
1. Why isn’t this story appearing on AP News?
2. Why isn’t MSM following up on this story?
3. What reasonable advantage would Assad have had to do such a thing?
4. Is the intercepted phone call misunderstood by the WH? Is it the actions of a panicked officer/administrator reacting at a subordinate assuming one of theirs took things too far (i,e. not following orders)?
Still – with this swirl and the pounding the WH is now giving Congress via MSM that they need to give him the okay – STILL – whatever the answers are to the questions stated above – we have absolutely no business engaging in Syria via military actions of any kind. We have no business funneling any type of guns, ammunition or other weapons into the mix either. Humanitarian assistance by those who want to help, have at it.
Think of it this way, the less opportunity for bungling by the president of the USA – the better.
