Syrian civil war is basically a power-play between two Islamic factions slaughtering each other: shia and sunni. Assad={shia, secular, moderate, pro-Iran} and Rebels={sunni, religious, jihadist, pro-Saudi}. Without ongoing US/Saudi military assistance to the terrorists, this war would probably be over in a week. Saudi Arabia is trying to get the region in Sunni order for their next move of Muslim world domination. This can’t happen without direct US involvement in Syria.

It's really quite simple to analyze the Ban Ki-Moon "findings" . If it was the Syrian gov't who did the chem attack, Ki-Moon wouldn't even hesitate to say so (he's only a loyal puppet of the West). However, UN's Carla del Ponte said it was the rebels who did it while two released hostages of the rebels also declared it was the rebels who did the chemical attack. But Ban Ki-Moon, being loyal to his West masters (financing the rebels), decided to be "on the fence" on his "official" UN report (which didn't say much other than saying, 'there was a chemical attack') ... therefore, it was the West-financed rebels who did it.

You really think the rebels wouldn't think to make sure the rocket they used was of soviet design?

moreover, if we think of the morality , evenif chemical weapons were used directly by Assad himself , it doesn't make it duty to kill him at the price of so many civilians in present and future(until his term). Without him, the whole region will fall to extremists.
othe r than that US does not have the ability to give peace or democracy . People(other than the rich ones) even in USA are frustrated by its rule.

there is no point of arguing on the report, as united nations contains large number of puppets of us govt., all it wants is to uproot Assad, so will it by hook or by crook & take the world on to the path of destruction

The international non-governmental organization Human Rights Watch (HRW) has been criticized by national governments, other NGOs, its founder and former Chairman Robert L. Bernstein, and the media. Among other things, it has been accused by critics of being influenced by United States government policy, iHRW is biased against Israel and that requesting or accepting donations from Saudi Arabian citizens causes it to be biased. HRW has publicly responded to criticisms relating to its reporting on Latin America and in the context of the Arab–Israeli conflict.

H RW gets funded by Saudis !!!! hence NO credibilty

Although the investigation suggests that the missile was launched from north-west and made by Soviet, it doesn't has a connection on who launched it. It only has prooved that war-head was lauched from north-west, and the investigators didn't traced to the origin of launching to see whom is responsible for the launching?
That's just too far from adding conclusion right now.

Keep it intelligent Banki- Insisting not to let the Cia bully you or the tactics of a un court of peace to the world- Respect to V putin for evidently keeping world peace. geneva 2 all the way!

A point which to my mind is telling.
There are eyes in the sky. America has, so does Russia.
With this war, I'm sure that these two superpowers have been watching very closely movements on the ground.
And when push comes to shove,
All they have to do is dig out the satellite images.
Regardle ss of interpretation of the un inspectors report,
Facts can be produced.
I.e, rebel movement in vicinity of the attack.
No use getting fixated on a report, after all, doctoring docs to produce dodgy dossiers is an art the west have been practicing for some time.
No doubt this is a bargaining chip that Putin has,
