Now Mattis Admits There Was No Evidence Assad Used Poison Gas on His People

Posted by M. C. on February 10, 2018

The truth slips out occasionally, especially when the government storyline is so blatantly false.

Don’t count on this happening again anytime soon.

Maybe Maddog was slipped a Seymour Hersh article, maybe one on Hillary.

Lost in the hyper-politicized hullabaloo surrounding the Nunes Memorandum and the Steele Dossier was the striking statement by Secretary of Defense James Mattis that the U.S. has “no evidence” that the Syrian government used the banned nerve agent Sarin against its own people.

Nikki Haley Owes Us an Apology | Gold Goats ‘n Guns

Posted by M. C. on November 20, 2017

It is proof positive that she has exactly the wrong temperament to be a diplomat and negotiator.  She’s a bully…

One has to be a bully sometimes when you are on a mission to create a world empire. Or when you are desperate to keep what empire you have.

More botheration over some silly gas attacks. I thought the science was settled!

After getting thoroughly outmaneuvered at the U.N. Security Council meeting this week, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley apologized in advance to the Syrian victims of the next chemical weapons attack.

The sheer arrogance of this statement is staggering. Read the rest of this entry »

Have We Been Deceived Over Syrian Sarin Attack? Scrutinizing the Evidence in an Incident Trump Used to Justify Bombing Syria

Posted by M. C. on September 15, 2017

Worthless organizations trying to justify their existence with shoddy work and lies. The fact that they are trying to destroy one of the few countries (and a relatively normal Islamic country to boot) that actually wants to defeat ISIS matters not to them.

The United Nations Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria issued a report this September that reinforced the official narrative that the Syrian air force dropped a bomb containing nerve gas sarin on the insurgent-controlled town of Khan Sheikhoun, Syria on April 4. That conclusion comes several weeks after the Organization for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) issued a report that supported sarin exposure as the cause of death and injuries.

More Syrian Sarin Gas Attack Lies-Truth Lies Once Again With Seymour M. Hersh

Posted by M. C. on July 2, 2017

Some American military and intelligence officials were especially distressed by the president’s determination to ignore the evidence. “None of this makes any sense,” one officer told colleagues upon learning of the decision to bomb. “We KNOW that there was no chemical attack … the Russians are furious. Claiming we have the real intel and know the truth … I guess it didn’t matter whether we elected Clinton or Trump.“

America Should Start Exploring How to End All the Wars It’s Started

Posted by M. C. on April 17, 2017

“A widely held sentiment inside the White House is that many of the most prominent foreign policy think tanks in Washington are doing the bidding of their Arab and pro-Israel funders. I’ve heard one administration official refer to Massachusetts Avenue, the home of many of these think tanks, as ‘Arab-occupied territory’.” Read the rest of this entry »
