Thread Name: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Subject: RE: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Remember that Assad was actually tolerated by the US for many years. The idea that
somehow both Britain and the US are sending emergency humanitarian aid but not weaponry
is ridiculous. The arms merchant business is international in scope and involves many different countries.

The problem is that politicians are putting on a false face on this issue and misleading the public. Many people are gullible and believe the propaganda on the media which is being manipulated by those with vested interests in selling erroneous ideas. Arms merchants are companies such as G.E., Boeing, not to mention the insidious role of contractors in the Mid-east.

How can anyone speak with such authority on this issue when they don't really have the facts and quote journals and blogs that agree with their ideas?

All you have to do is follow the money and see who benefits from warlike rhetoric.
