Thread Name: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Subject: RE: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Kennedy distanced himself from the "Bay of Pigs" which he was instrumental in organizing.
It's a case of another political leader stepping in front of the parade.

Chemical weapons as a pretext for war won't work with the US public today because it has become transparent that the US, due to its debacle in Iraq and Afghanistan not to mention Vietnam, doesn't have a political or moral leg on which to stand. Besides, the question is begged, who had these chemical weapons in the first place and how did Assad get them?
Russia? China? The US? Israel? The questions are still unanswered.

We know how Hussein got them. Rumsfeld has pictures of himself shaking hands with Hussein. The US supported Hussein as well as Assad until either became less of a toady
for US foreign policies. Let's face it. The US has a history of supporting dictators until they attempt to overthrow our own.
