Not proof. Ukraine and about every other country in the Soviet bloc and Israel including many current NATO members have access to those containers. Sarin isn't uranium - you can't track it's origin.

And no I don't believe the discredited journalists at the NYT who are the same idiots who brought you yellow cake uranium.

When JFK said the Soviets were installing nuclear weapons in Cuba and when Reagan said the Soviets shot down a Korean airlines flight they both released satellite photos proving their allegations. We all know if it's true they have the photos and releasing those photos does not hurt the US. So why don't we have proof? Could it be that it was released from a drone that took off from Jordan or Syria which is one of the plausible alternatives to the propaganda being disseminated by the media at the behest of the US government?

US intelligence sources also warned the pentagon that they should fully investigate the possibility the planes in question bombed a storage facility held by Al qaeda. This clearly wasn't done in the hours leading up to the US strike.

Until I see proof I'll go with Accam's razor and remain skeptical that a man without any motive ruined his best chance to remain in power.

Here's an analysis of the "intelligence" report produced by the president of the United States of America in support of the bombing of a country that is no threat to our nation. See if CNN or the NYT or NPR has anything like it. You know they don't because they are only part of the propaganda machine used by the military and the government of our once great nation.

I'm sorry. Are you really trying to say that a retired intelligence officer, MIT professor, and the guy who broke the Iran Contra fiasco are inferior sources than Anderson Cooper and the guys at the NYT who brought you WMD?

If you want to argue any of the points in the articles be my guest.

No one has ever claimed that Syria is a threat to the U.S. The internal war and policies of al-Assad are disruptive to it's neighbors, and Europe. About 5 million refugees have fled Syria to Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and Egypt. Another one million have requested asylum to Europe. The impact on Europe through increased crime (to include an increase of rape that is described as a crisis) is significant. It's estimated as many as 3.6 refugees will impact Europe by 2020.

About 6 million Syrian refugees are displaced within Syria. As a result of the chaos and war inside Syria, it's allowed ISIS to grow and impact not only the Middle East and Africa, but globally. ISIS is responsible for attacks in 29 countries. They have branches in 18+ countries.

The fact is, ISIS is having a big impact on destabilizing the Middle East, impacting out allies, impacting out interests, and fomenting jihadi terrorism globally. Syria having a direct threat to the U.S. is not even a consideration. Syria's house needs to be put in order. It's in crisis and it cannot be ignored.

Ahhhhhh - so NATO supplied Syria with those chemical containers.

Much more plausible than Assaud undermining everything he had been working on for years. What's even more likely is that Qatar supplied the rebels with sarin. Qatar is on record as having funded false flag garbage like this before to defame Assaud.

As for what you wrote above - there wouldn't be a Syrian refugee crisis without Isis and qaeda. And there wouldn't be Isis and qaida without US intervention in the middle east. We need to get our own house in order, meaning getting out of the middle east, before we go around telling anyone else what to do or not to do.

These bombings and any others Trumpy wants to lead only strengthen Isis and qaeda. Whatever else you choose to buy from the propaganda salesmen that has to be the take home point. This garbage strengthens the people who really want to hurt us.

I'm trying to say that you're either gullible or an idiot, and your response furthers that impression. Anderson Cooper and NYT are not the "sources" they are the ones running down and talking to the sources. I don't care where some retired person worked before or where someone teaches-- they can still be a tin-hatter.

You claimed there was "no evidence", but there is ample evidence as previous post have shown. If you want to argue about the quality or sufficiency of the evidence, that's another thing. But your overstatement was proven wrong, and now you're making yourself into even more of an idiot trying to stand by that demonstrably false statement.
