The intelligence linking Syrian President Bashar Assad or his inner circle to an alleged chemical weapons attack is no "slam dunk," with questions remaining about who actually controls some of Syria's chemical weapons stores and doubts about whether...

These so called rebels (exconvicts from all the organised prison breaks and other violent criminals/murderers) are the culprits ...armed by the west seen driving tanks, cutting out the heart and lungs of a victim on video, chopping off the heads of Christian Bishop and others. Thats what mercenaries do, vile zombies who are probably now out of control, should be rounded up and dealt with ......Assad would not be shooting himself in the foot......

No proof of what you are saying either Elderberry. As far as Assad is concerned ~ his selfish, ruthlessness has no limits, so anything is possible from him.

Assad is not the bad guy here. Do some research. He doesn't need to be.

Still say it's not Assad - will be very surprised it he "shot himself in the foot."

There is enough blame to go around, but no reason for us to start WWIII!

Why do people feel the need to get embroiled with people not like us and think they can change them? At the cost of our failing economy, no less.

It's the rebels in an MIC/CIA false flag op. See my submitted stories.
Video of 'Rebels' Arming & Firing A Sarin Chemical Weapons Shell Into A Syrian Village?

We have to stop this MIC madness.

The citizens of Syria,ie. families with children are,unfortunately reaping that which the Cheney ,Bush,Rumsfeld .and Rice have sown..., with their bald face lies re.( Saddam,s weapons of mass destruction.)Complete distrust of the USA.To whom are they to turn?.May I say to Jason I find that your xenophobia
and typical isolationism, not to forget your bigotry,although fairly typical in America ,VERY disturbing.
Why should WE care about them ? For the same reason that we fought in W.W.2.(Yes I was around at that time,)The attempt by an evil tyrant
to rid the world of certain ethnicity,s .to be unacceptable to those with any concept of humanity.
there are NO absolutes re. taking sides, BUT there are many human beings who deserve help.
I personally find the sight of families and children,I be;ieve that at Least one million of them,who are essentially homeless, walking for miles seeking asylum,to be disturbing.

Obama keeps pushing for war, even though a UN inspector, Carla del Ponte, announced on Swiss tv, that it was Not Assad, but the rebels who used chemical weapons.

Samo samo samo. It is ALL about money. Assad, I donít think is an idiot ó I donít think he would do this on purpose in order for the whole world to come down on them. It is only USA and couple of others that want this war. Why? MOOOOOONEY! Reason is oil, weaponproductions, test of new weaponery and so forth. Follow the money is all you have to do. BUT it REALLY are interesting to see so many countrys say NO to go to war. Countrys that for few years ago stod by USA in all wars. Very interesting and shows that PEOPLE around the world are saying NO and even more interesting is that their governmets follow what their people say. So folks...... IT DOES MATTER TO RAISE YOUR VOICE. Governments NOW KNOW that if they do not follow their peoples will, they will be replaced.

Sad to say, but there are marytrs to every cause. To back a weak-knee President who shot off HIS mouth, tanked HIS credibility in the process, and pulled us into the mix by association is no reason to follow evil into darkness.

What's best for we the people, no interference in another country's war unless a strong presence is committed to, with appropriate follow-through as kibg as beeded, Neither has been clearly stated.

Time to let his stand or fall on his own so that we ... and those we have voted into office to represent US can breath free and do their job.

Just a reminder for those who can ...

War is not the answer. So says Pope Francis who has set aside a day of prayer and fasting for the sole purpose of peach in Syria. That day is Saturday, September 7.

Forget, if you must, his label (CATHOLIC). He can stand on his own as a great humane being for ALL people, as witnessed throughout his life by example.

So, if you can find it in your heart, won't you chip in a portion of your energy for this single purpose?

I believe there is great power in single-minded combined energy, don't you?

Another typo ... make that PEACE not peach, so sorry. Quick knee-jerk response gets us into trouble every time (much like this Obama/Syria mess).
