Yes, it seems we’ll have to post comments about this latest “atrocity from Assad” here, because CD has yet to post a piece about it. Several questions present themselves:
What possible tactical advantage is there to using chemical weapons there? Answer - little to none.
Which involved nation has proved in the last week that it also has no problem with slaughtering innocent civilians? Answer - Israel.
Why would someone use, at the closing stages of a horrible conflict which they are winning, do the one thing that might cause international condemnation and stoke your fiercest enemies to intensify their efforts? Answer - only a fool would do such a thing.
Last question: How is the harm inflicted by this alleged chemical attack any more murderous, destructive, and vicious than everything that has befallen Syria so far? Answer - only in the minds of the armchair viewers that haven’t experienced their own homes, lives, and futures, already turned to rubble. Wake up America, the warmongers are attempting to lead you around by the nose again. (And why not - it’s such an easy thing to do!)
I call bullshit. This is most likely a joint US/Israeli effort to herd that buffoon in the WH and as much of the propagandized US citizenry into more death and destruction for Syria. Obama says there is a “red line” and supposedly Assad promptly crosses it- bullshit. Trump says we’re leaving, and Assad supposedly and promptly begs him to stay - bullshit.
