Syria

Post by stuie » 06 Apr 2017, 12:06

I can not get Mrs Stuie to agree with me on this

I can see absolutely no reason why the Syrian government would release chemical weapons

They have just positioned themselves whereby regime change is no longer the desired option for the west

IMO the only people to gain from this are the rebels, trying to get Trump involved against Assad

Any body else smell a rat, or is it just me

You are not alone. I feel the same as you on this matter.

It's just you. Assad will do anything to hold onto power. I cannot understand why they would do it either but equally don't understand why people kill either. Sick world we live in. There is no answer to it that I can see only more dead bodies.

I'm in a similar thought pattern to Stuie. I think the world has been hoodwinked. It is far more likely that the evil ones have done it rather than the lesser evil one, Assad is not perfect, by a long chalk, but he is certainly preferable to the nutters of IS.

So we the Brits (the government, not that labour shower) are saying that the USA response is an appropriate retaliation

I disagree

number 1. Was it the Syrian government that did it, if we are not 100% sure, then no action can be taken

number 2. If we are 100% sure, simple, every tomahawk missle should have landed on Assad himself

It is not a case of whether you or I are sure that Assad was to blame.
The US believes Tuesday’s deadly attack was launched by President Bashar al-Assad from the Shayrat Airfield in Syria.
Therefore the USA response was appropriate.
Of course Putin seems to agree with you and is sending its most advanced warship to confront American vessels in the Mediterranean.
Being happy never goes out of style.
