    Who benefits the MOST from US attacking Syria? Al-Qaeda or Israel? Saudi Arabia?  Qatar? Jordan?

    According to Associated Press correspondent Dale Gavlak, it has been the Saudis...

        Syrian rebels in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta have admitted to Associated Press correspondent Dale Gavlak that they were responsible for last week’s chemical weapons incident which western powers have blamed on Bashar Al-Assad’s forces, revealing that the casualties were the result of an accident caused by rebels mishandling chemical weapons provided to them by Saudi Arabia.

    Non of the above, unless we accept the idea that multi-national corporations who manufacture and sell the chemicals to anyone interested are ultimately responsible. Let us also consider that those who work for the chemical industries are also responsible just by doing their jobs and turning a blind eye to the possibilities. But then again, once the chemicals are sold, the buyer then becomes responsible for the uses thereof. To break this interdependency, first takes awareness and then seeking alternatives and finally acting on it. The solution to the dead children from the saran gas is not to bomb more children to death in a bid to punish the hidden perpetrators. That is only harming more victims and is an anti-solution. The real solution originates at the point of production. The workers need to stop making the chemicals that ultimately are used to kill and main other workers.

    That is a Marine??? Worked for those guys back in the eighties. Great Corps. Live next to two. Great men. My across the street neighbor Bill served for over 30 years. These men would no more do something without showing their face than then p p into a fan.
    Covert ops OK but put it in public without being a man about it --- no way!!! The photo is not a marine. End of story. I do not like John Kerry but he is military. He stood against our actions like a man. John McCain in a different way served. These men are real men and battling it out with their faces shown and accountability. Your photo is a disgrace to every service man or woman anywhere. Cowards ruin a military. Even that guy Snowden is a real man with a real face and standing up. The Avatar in this photo is a coward. You harm all who serve by posting it.

    This photo is not of a man but a weasel. Whoever delivered up this photo is a coward and should be thought of that way. Real men do not play avatar.

    Now to your point. Hells bells and cocker shells. Nobody wins here. And play conspiracy theories on the gas. Does it even matter??? Our presence will knock off that stuff. I really do not care who killed 400 children. But I know that our people do not do that and our presence will end it.
    Our Military is voluntary. Does that even register with you?
    Our Legislatures are voluntary and run for election -- does that register???

    Who profits from Syria involvement ---- the four hundred that do not get killed is the answer. My people -- not the avatar in your photo will lay down their lives because they are - our people and they love life and will give their own for another.
    Do you just deny any good in the world???

    Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, the Taliban and other Islamic extremist are the only ones who will really benefit fro any US military actions.

    Kerry has claimed that he is in possession of reports that Assad's government was the culprit. But this makes no sense at all given that the last thing he would want is a superpower supporting the rebel mercenaries. Especially the US who can strike him at will with virtual impunity.

    The mercenaries did it, but I seriously doubt that it was a mistake.
