The “chemical weapon” attacks were not done by the Syrian army. They were done by so called “rebels” with chlorine and with riot control agents by jihadist insurgencies who sourced the chlorine gas by stealing it from a Syrian factory and somehow obtained riot control agents from official Turkish state stocks.
The Israeli, the British and the French government tried to instigate a wider war on Syria by making false allegations about “chemical weapon” attacks by the Syrian army. The U.S. nearly joined them in their allegations. Will all those op-ed writers that tried to use the “fact” of chemical weapon usage now call for all out war on Al-Nusra?

I highly recommend following MoA, as well as Daniel McAdams at The LRC Blog (LewRockwell.com) or the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, to keep up with events in Syria. And my own blog, of course. Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Google +, and LinkedIn.
