Chemical Weapons in Iraq? From Whom?

So now the New York Times is claiming that there were chemical weapons in Iraq all along. Wow. But according to Reason.com’s summary, there are a couple of oddities about these weapons. For one thing, these chemical weapons were kept secret. Soldiers claim they were even ordered to lie to Congress about them. Soldiers who were aware of the discoveries were ordered to keep quiet about them, and even to mislead Congress about what they knew. “‘Nothing of significance’ is what I was ordered Read more […]

That Sarin Story We Were Told As An Excuse To Kill Syrians

Remember not so very long ago when the President was itching to attack Syria? You’d have thought the world was going to end if we didn’t take military action, immediately! Whatever happened to that massive threat? Is Syria still there? From the London Review of Books: Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August.

Why Don’t the Muslim Nations Take Care of Syria?

If Assad is guilty of gassing his own people in Syria (there s some dispute about this), then why aren’t the other Muslim nations protesting and threatening to cut off his head? These nations have armies and weapons, many of which we paid for. If John Kerry is right in his claim that chemical weapon use could spread to Syria’s neighbors, it seems to me that Syria’s neighbors have a vested interest and duty to deal with Assad. Why do we have to do it? Assad didn’t attack us. There is no Read more […]

We Are NOT The World’s Police!
