Syria: Hours Tick Away

The hours go by and we still have not given an adequate response to the alleged chemical attack on civilians by the Syrian military……there was going to be a response in 48 hours well that was about 96 hours ago…..

But while we await the administration’s response to the attack there is something to consider.

I do nor believe that the culprit in the attack has not been adequately identified…..

If you’re feeling an unnerving sense of deja vu amid recent global developments, it’s because we have been here before — many times.

The United States and its allies have been accusing the Syrian government of committing chemical weapons attacks in Syria almost since the conflict began in 2011. In August 2012, then-President Barack Obama publicly warned the Assad government that the red line for his administration was “a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized,” which would prompt a U.S. intervention. (Additionally, after Obama successfully had Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi assassinated in 2011, he also indicated to Assad that he would be next.)

There are still many questions that need asking and answering…..this administration does not give me confidence that we are being told the truth this time around…..

There are too many pitfalls in any action that would involve Russian or Turkish ……this is not going to end well.

  1. I find it impossible to trust any reporting from Syria anymore. Just more and more supposed ‘justification’ for increased intervention. Everyone involved is playing a very dangerous game.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Not only do we not have the solidly identified culprit, but the primary suspect really didn’t have a compelling interest to conduct such an attack. The regime military forces are on the rebound and the opposition is in disarray.
