Who Cares if Someone Somewhere Used 'Chemical Weapons'?

A reader writes to make an excellent point about the pitfalls of focusing on the chemical weapons issue in Syria:
What difference does it make if Obama has “evidence” or not that the Syrian government is using chemical weapons? It should be none of the business of the U.S. regardless of the facts. By arguing about whether Assad is using chemical weapons or not, the stage is set with a built in excuse for war, because all that has to happen to justify the carnage is some sort of “evidence,” accurate or not, that these weapons have been used.

US Bombing Syrian Chemical Weapons Stockpiles Will Kill Many Thousands

The Obama Adminsitration is reportedly planning a cruise missile attack on what it believes are the Syrian government's chemical weapons stockpiles. This is said to be in retaliation for what it claims is a Syrian government chemical attack in which as few as 300 or less were killed. 

The US bombing of Syrian chemical weapons stores is said to be logistically all but impossible, and, more importantly would risk a mass-disbursement of deadly chemicals that could kill thousands upon thousands of Syrian civilians who happen to live in proximity. Those not killed by the chemicals released by US bombs would probably already be dead by the bombs themselves.

Kerry's Syria Morality Tale Carries Scent of Hypocrisy and Mendacity

US Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday that it was undeniable that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons earlier this month, killing anywhere from a few dozen to claims of more than a thousand dead.

When the Syrian government shocked the US and agreed to allow UN inspectors to investigate the alleged scene of the crime, the US government panicked, first pressuring UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon to call off the UN mission and when that did not work claiming that the inspection was meaningless anyway no matter what it found.

From Scott Horton's website:
Former Congressman Ron Paul discusses his video interviews on the Ron Paul Channel; why the US has no business telling Egyptians what to do with their own country; lessening the terrorism threat with non-interventionist foreign policy; how Obama’s “red line” on Syria bypasses Congress’s duty to declare war; the incentive for Syrian rebels to conduct false flag chemical weapons attacks; and the selective prosecution of whistleblowers and war criminals.

For the Back to School List—Military Recruiter Opt Out Form

While shopping for pens, notebooks, or a backpack, don't forget to consider adding one more item to your back to school list—a military recruiter opt out form. All government school systems and most private schools that receive education funding from the United Stated government are required to provide to military recruiters high school students' names, addresses, and telephone numbers, plus any additional information about the students provided to colleges or prospective employers. The only way to prevent the sharing of this information is for a student or parent to opt out of the disclosure.
