I have a question. If our government knew there was still a chemical weapons facility in Syria, why did they wait until it was "used" then destroy it. It's not hard to manufacture chemical weapons. I can go to a dollar store and buy the stuff necessary.

A facility for chlorine gas? Yikes. That's just ridiculous.

wasnt the gas attack done with 20 - 30 year old chlorine packs for pools?

Syria has "facilities" to strap old chlorine packs onto explosive fuel barrels and drop them from unmarked helicopters like the ones the mercenaries we support use?

I thought Syria had an actual chemical weapons program....but hey we bombed the amateurs for a supposed attack that cost them a few hundred dollars to carry out with an attack that cost us a hundred million.

I just think it's ridiculous that people believe this stuff. Whether we need to go to war or not, just tell the truth as to why, not some stuff that is so unbelievable a child should(but doesn't) see through it.

It's like, just say that we must have "more oil than the "enemy" to win before it runs dry." It's some StarCraft stuff, this world. Except we are all the same race. (sighs loudly)

Is this snippet below an example of the "ridiculous stuff" that we shouldn't believe?



Even before the conflict began, many Syrians were complaining about high unemployment, corruption and a lack of political freedom under President Bashar al-Assad.

In March 2011, pro-democracy demonstrations erupted in the southern city of Deraa, inspired by the "Arab Spring" in neighbouring countries.

When the government used deadly force to crush the dissent, protests demanding the president's resignation erupted nationwide.

The unrest spread and the crackdown intensified. Opposition supporters took up arms, first to defend themselves and later to rid their areas of security forces. Mr Assad vowed to crush what he called "foreign-backed terrorism".
The violence rapidly escalated and the country descended into civil war.

PS - You blew it when you didn't get the baby milk reference.

I do believe it was a Research facility that got hit and not a chemical plant but it may have been cleaning chemicals plant . Too soon just yet and I would think that with 100 cruse missiles you would have more then 6 people injured so its still early to put all the pieces together .

God forbid that our government would actually tell us the whole truth about anything. Same with the governments of most countries. They do not believe we are capable of understanding their desire for power and money and control. We understand it perfectly, we have to live with it and not say anything all the time.

Not if it was all coordinated and the areas cleared before it happened....

You are correct. It was a very precise, measured, coordinated strike. Russians were told what was coming, via back-channel communications. They have to act angry and maybe do some sabre rattling, but it's necessary, so Putin can maintain his stature at home.


“We confined it to the chemical weapons-type targets,” Mr. Mattis said. “We were not out to expand this; we were very precise and proportionate. But at the same time, it was a heavy strike.”

Defense officials said that Tomahawk cruise missiles were launched from at least three American warships, while B-1 bombers dropped long-range missiles on targets. French and British warplanes also fired long-range missiles, while a British submarine launched cruise missiles.

And they didn't tell Assad? So, a lot of serious damage was done. Right?

Exactly who was waving a "saber" around in this situation?

Maybe they did tell him. Syria did shoot at the incoming cruise missiles. Not sure if any were intercepted.
