IIRC, the 'gas attack' turned out to be the "moderate rebels" gassing their own people in order to try to get the USA to enter the war.

It wasn't until a French UN official came out with purported evidence that the shit was QUICKLY memory-holed by the major news agencies. McCain probably drank himself into a coma that night.

If VX is apparently a "next-gen" nerve agent, and the appearance of sophisticated deployment techniques such as binary component applications are being employed, does this point to collaboration with a more advanced state actor? I'm sure China would be first on the list, but I've heard Iran and them are becoming bros due to them being both in the global pariah club.

Fucking evil evil shit.
I read that children fought over a piece of corn they found in cow dung they were so starving. You can't make this shit up.

World leaders get isolated in their bubbles, this seems a lot like saddam when our entire fleet was banging the fuck out of AG...it was a great time to just stfu and cooperate on every level...but no, had to go dickhead.

I think that glorious leader may not fully grasp that we went to war publicly citing wdm's. He's going to use them publicly, to settle a family beef? Holy crap that's whipping out the dick to ask Trump what he's going to do about it, he crossed the red line for little reason.

I don't want to see troops in North Korea, fuck, fuck no...but where else can something like this go?
We know that bombs and tomahawks lead to boots on the ground.
