U.S. is again manufacturing a case to instigate more unrest in the Moslem World, in order to further their own Agendas. Which as always very much includes what Israhell wants.
The rebels got their arsenal from plunderring Syrian armed forces depots, besides what they get from the west. The rebels used the chemicals to win over foriegn intervention to their own aid.

We should never forget about Vietnam and AgentOrange from Monsanto..


It wasn't just in Vietnam that soldiers were exposed to Agent Orange by Monsanto. Our own gov't allowed them to use Ft. McClellan as a dump site for their toxins for 66 years. Just Google Ft. McClellan more toxic than Camp Lejeune. Yet, our own Government is still denying us medical care from the toxins we were exposed to.

I have seen the fatest Hypocrates with double-
standard s, in cases with quadruple standards
in what is still very much a racist U.S.A.

In the U.S. they have differrent laws and rules for differrent people, they themselves are above international laws.
The only nation to use Nuclear charges in the
prosecution of a war, of all things against two
huge Civilian targets. Now, they are the champion
saint of a non-nuclear Iran. When Iran's more immediate neighbors like the Soviet Republics
and China have no problem with the same.

It's pathetic when I have to go to the Russian news to find stories the US news should be reporting...


Alex Povolotski 27.08.2013 19:38

Double standards, eh? And now the US is ready to shell Syria over its use of chemical weapons.

St ill, all evidence indicates it is the rebels who used the chemical agents. But the UN shelved the investigator's report from Italy.
