USA itself willingly is using chemical weapon. take a look at agent orange in Vietnam, more than 3mln of Vietnamiese suffers till today USA haven't payed compensation to Vietnam, only to us vets. Assad is framed by cia+alkaida. there is no legal statement of researches that Assad did it. this all history looks like a lie. USA do not want strong government, because there is a need of a weak Syria.

The Iran-Iraq war was one of the biggest tragedies to befall two nations and its people. Saddam also tested biological and chemical weapons on Iran POWs. This madman was a creation of west unleashed on Middle East.

U.S. citizen here. Guys, what do I do about my government? I post my criticisms only to see myself get banned, censored and deleted. I've always believed that speaking truth to power is the best, the only way of creating the lasting change necessary to see us through to a future any of us would want to live in, but how can that ever succeed if and when they control all of the platforms from which we can be heard?

Classic U.S hypocrisy. They have no ground to stand on due to it's own crimes against humanity, starting with 2 nuclear bombs on Japan '45.
During the Vietnam war, they used Agent Orange, which still kills people in Vietnam. During the desert storms war they used white phosphorus and napalm on civilians. Etc etc. I, for one, want to see the evidence the UN currently collecting in Syria and an Investigation must be lunched to find the one responsible for this attack.

Where was their humane side in that time? No talk of intervention, no condemnation no nothing. 15000 only died in Halabcha. Where were these fake champions of democracy in that time?

Where can I find those CIA documents?
