Interesting, UN inspectors in Syria documented their work, and photos and videos have been released even before report was produced. What about Russian experts in Aleppo? Nothing! Not a single photo or video showing them at work! Not a single picture of rocket fragments. No map of a place of attack. Nothing! And yet Moscow demands release of evidence that US used to blame Assad. Looks like Moscow learned how to utilize "double standards"

This analysis of the alleged locations and rebel regions may be of interest. See Statistical Ideas blog.

According to yahoo news on Jan. 2013, Washington gave green light to Syria rebels to use gas, and blame Assad. No wonder Obama claimed before the UN finished investigation. Please google yahoo news us backed plan launch chemical weapon attack Syria

War is a Necessary Part of the Human Experience as long as it does not Impact non-Combatants - Especially Women and Children (which becomes Genocide)

P eace NEVER Works and there is No Example of a Peaceful System in any Sector of Living Beings on this Planet


That's the truth. As long as there are people there will be wars. It's best to realize that and try to live with it along with all our faults IMHO.

If USA bombs Syria what targets are they going to hit?
If the bombing is to control chemical weapons, surely they need boots on the ground to secure the stockpiles?
Or will USA entrust security of chemical weapons to the rebels?
Mr Putin stand your ground in the UN


You can bet your bottom dollar USA will strike;
all weapons bunkers, anyplace they think Asaad or his Generals may be at, Russian military installations in Syria (they played hard ball), Syrian air force bases, any weapon facility the USA will say that Asaad could use to deliver chemical weapons.
