Could be true, maybe?

Let’s hope the aircraft were not from Akrotiri because maybe Putin/Assad will follow Trumps example ......... bomb now check it out later, who needs evidence ? Somehow I doubt it, Putin has infinitely more sense than Trump! :roll:

Hundreds Killed as US Bombs ISIS Chemical Depot: Syrian MoD

"AMN" - DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:30 P.M.) – The US-coalition Air Force has conducted airstrikes against ISIS positions in the eastern city of Deir Ezzor, targeting a chemical depot for the terror group which resulted in the death of hundreds of militants as well as civilian, the Syrian Ministry of Defense said in an official statement.

It's nice to see agreement on this forum for once. I would put Putin and Trump at the exact opposite end of the scale in terms of intelligence. In fact, getting an idiot into the White House is no mean achievement. Bit like revenge for Yeltsin in a way.

The following comments by Tulsi Gabbard, a Democratic Representative from Hawaii make sense to me:

Here’s what Gabbard said: “This administration has acted recklessly without care or consideration of the dire consequences of the United States attack on Syria without waiting for the collection of evidence from the scene of the chemical poisoning.” Gabbard added she would support Assad’s prosecution and execution as a war criminal if the attacks were proven, though she still wouldn’t support military action. “A successful prosecution of Assad (at the International Criminal Court) will require collection of evidence from the scene of the incident, and I support the United Nation’s efforts in this regard. Without such evidence, a successful prosecution is impossible,” she said.

Tulsi Gabbard has been to Syria to see for herself and has condemned US actions in the region. especially their support for the White Helmets (aka. Al-Qaida/Al-Nusra Civil Defence?) ...... of course McCain and his cronies now want her thrown out of the House of Representatives as a traitor. So Trump isn't the only idiot. :roll:

I tend to agree with this guys comments ...........

Although reading the western press you would be led to believe that the Russians and China vetoed a UN resolution to prevent an investigation. When you read what the resolution represented, it was actually a condemnation of Assad and the imposition of more sanctions. A UN resolution is not required for an independent investigation by the OPCW as they already have a UN mandate but as the Russians say, it has to be independently led. As the US has not yet presented a shred of evidence, for their illegal attack on Syria, an independent investigation is the last thing they want.

The embarrassment the US would suffer if this, as it was in Ghouta 2013 and the UN convoy attacks, turned out to be another false flag perpetrated by the US backed terrorists, would just about destroy US and coalition credibility in the eyes of the rest of the World ..... except NATO countries of course. :roll:


Russian parliamentarian Konstantin Kosachev said Friday that the West will use the best efforts to hamper the investigation into the chemical attack in Syria's Idlib province.

Assad is a monster and securing a conviction against him for crimes against humanity and war crimes under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court appears to me to be the right way to go. It would be nice to see Blair and Bush convicted, too, for Iraq in 2003.

if the syrians attacked with chemical weapons, surely the west and the un should have no problem investigating the matter. the site is in the rebel control. the west wants access to see if syria has such weapons. how does that prove that assad used such weaponseven if he has them.

this stinks of rebels bringing in chemical munitition from somewhere. whereever it cam from it would be with western support.

I agree with you, with one provision ....... IF THERE IS SOME REAL VERIFYABLE EVIDENCE TO SUPPRT THE ACCUSATIONS ? :roll:

So far all the accusations seem to collapse when investigated by independent inspection whether the Sarin attack in Ghouta, the UN aid convoy, Caesar and his 20,000 photos or the Assad hanging thousands in a Damascus prison or the latest chemical weapon incident ...... over time, when push comes to shove the claims just fall apart.

One strange thing is that, in spite of all the accusations against Assad when they have a vote by Syrians he still gets re-elected as President. Paphitis used to feed us a daily liturgy of war crimes by Assad and Russia in Aleppo as was reflected in the western media. When it was liberated the truth started coming out, it was almost completely ignored in the Western press, yet, on the independent sites there was interview after interview and videos galore showing a completely different story. Almost everything we read turned out to be propaganda.

So, I am all in favour of war criminals being put on trial ...... but not tried just by accusations by those with a vested interest in making an example of those they opposed but a white wash of their own crimes. I cannot se how they could charge Assad without applying the same to Bush, Blair and many others. :roll: :x :x :x
