Do people suffering from nerve gas attacks have the ability to describe their experiences when the symptoms include"contraction of pupils, profuse salivation, convulsions, involuntary urination and defecation, and, when fatal, death by asphyxiation due to a loss of control of the respiratory muscles?
Do "chemical bombs" look any different from ordinary bombs? I looked up images and they look alike. Can people running from dropping bombs identify that they are "chemical bombs," falling at 600 mph as they flee in horror? Can we believe such absurdities or those who endorse them?
And where is the physical evidence?
Lacking evidence, given that Syria was declared to have removed all CW, given the history of al Qaeda having and using CW (and using false flag narratives), given the source of the reports as the terrorists themselves, given the total lack of logic in Assad sabotaging the Trump decision to allow him to rule, given the motive of al Qaeda to both use CW and blame Assad for any atrocities using them................how can our most progressive leaders, like Sanders, accept the same lies that Trump is now acting out? Where does this leave us?
In response to the lies promoted by the "activists (ie the terrorists)," here is the response of our most respected progressive leaders:
"Congressman Peter Welch, Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sen. Patrick Leahy all called Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad a "war criminal" in written statements...." They urge caution in response, but all are guilty of accepting the lies of terrorists and the kind of absurdities that justify atrocities. Where are the leaders challenging the lies? Where is the media exposing the absurdities?
It breaks my heart and I cannot come to terms with it. It reminds me of the many times that the Communists, in Spain and elsewhere, have fought with the fascists to defeat their socialist rivals. It reminds me that when JFK directed a total withdrawal from Vietnam, he was killed and his successor quickly reversed his decision, leading to the death of 3 million.
When progressives lie down with fascists and terrorists, it's time to rip up the old game plan and complete the unfinished American Revolution, revolting against rule without consent, which always, always leads to war.
Here is the man who, tho a large slave owner and who never fought as a soldier, laid down our foundational values of equality and consent:
