The State Department said it was assessing indications that the regime used chemical weapons on Sunday during its offensive in Idlib, the most significant remaining holdout in Syria of jihadist rebels.

I don’t like this Syrian mess. Obama mismanaged the pullout of Iraq and then the Russians get a foothold. Now we’re helping Al-Qaida in Idlib? The chemical weapons could be used by the rebels as a false flag. If it weren’t for the Russians being there I’d say let’s bail now.
When Trump said, "Get out of Syria" only to have Bolton and his butt boys whine about needing time to make a pullout work it was a given that there would be an incident like this with a staged, rumored, or suspected, chemical attack.
Bolton and the boyz will be beating the drums and screaming about how Iran was probably involved, too, as soon as the morning shows can fit them into the schedule.
Actually we don’t know whether this is a false flag or a false false flag operation. Unless you’re on an actual investigation team we’ll never know. I would like to see an independent investigation allowed though. Including our people.
As someone else pointed out, Syria must have been a healthcare paradise because every time SAA or Russia bombs terrorists, Western Media reports, “a hospital was destroyed.”
Are they throwing babies out of incubators yet? There has been so much BS about the Middle East and North Africa. Libya has been such a success. Right? Assad may have used chemical weapons but I doubt it.
I’m pretty sure it’s a false flag. Why would the Syrians need to use chemical weapons when they can just starve the jihadis out?
And why does the US care if more jihadis are killed?
Exactly - why does Bolton keep wanting to help the Saudi Wahabbis win?
