Interesting....UN inspectors will not say who is responsible for the chemical attacks. Will not assign blame. (Per Jonathon Hunt/Fox)

“We have additional INFO ABOUT the attack and that is being compiled and reviewed...and we will provide in days ahead.”

Not WHO used them.

“The UN investigation will not determine WHO used the weapons...only that they were used.”

Assad guilty by NO evidence -— only that they denied permission for Un inspectors. Now that Assad has, Kerry says “it’s too late.”

Move the sliding scale——NO EVIDENCE!

WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE WHO USED THE CHEM WEAPONS!

Yes..Benghazi figures in this somehow. I always said from beginning I thought it was about WMDS in Benghazi.. Not just missile/arms running. Obama could have withstood criticism of shipping arms to ‘rebels’ in Syria..but he would never be able to withstand shipping chemical weapons or allowing chemical weapons to fall into the hands of terrorists.

Kerry? A Senator? A Secy of State? Who would ever vote for this guy or put him in a Cabinet position?

It is called the Taranto Principle, named after he who coined the principle, the inimitable James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal.

According to the Taranto Principle, the left-wing media, in their fawning suck-ups of left-wing politicians, only encourage the pols' worst instincts: encouraging Jean-Francois Kerry's sophomoric wind-surfing during his presidential race or Howard Dean's blood-curdling scream upon losing the Iowa caucuses.

And then there is President Barack Obama (gag).

Obama might say "the earth is flat," and the left-wing press will generously indulge him, thus encouraging him to ever-greater pratfalls.

Right on cue ...

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/syria-response-cant-rely-solely-on-military-action/2013/08/26/cafe7f5a-0e64-11e3-bdf6-e4fc677d94a1_story.html

Syria strategy can’t rely solely on military might

EXCERPT

But the fact that Syria offers no perfect outcomes or options does not mean that all possible outcomes are equally undesirable. It remains in the United States’ interest now as two years ago to see more moderate forces prevail. This can’t be achieved with one or two volleys of cruise missiles. It will require patience and commitment.

The United States can’t dictate the outcome in Syria, and it would be foolish to send ground troops in an effort to do so. But by combining military measures with training, weapons supplies and diplomacy, it could exercise considerable influence. The military measures could include destroying forces involved in chemical weapons use and elements of the Syrian air force that have been used to target civilians, as well as helping to carve out a safe zone for rebels and the civilian populations they are seeking to protect.

Such military action should be seen as one component of a policy that finally recognizes a U.S. interest in helping to shape Syria’s future.

UN inspectors visit site of alleged Syria chemical attack despite sniper fire

.... “Officially Washington, London and Paris say they have incontrovertible evidence that the Syrian government is behind the chemical attack in Damascus, but they have not yet presented this evidence. Yet, they keep saying that the ‘red line’ has been crossed,” Lavrov said during an emergency press conference in Moscow

“This is high stakes lying by this WH and if they are in on it....it will spell the end of Obama and the entire democrat party.”

I don’t see how that will ever be proved.

McCain has on his full-dress warpaint. Kerry is positively glowing with his own “importance.”

The ground is pulsing with the war drumbeat.

The die is cast. It doesn’t matter WHO used the chems or where they came from, the “int’l community” realizes this is the opportunity to go get them and bury all of those pesky questions.

Meanwhile, what does Iran have to do to get attention?

What is the speculation on whether or not he will announce another unconstitutional misuse of American resources, for some half-thought-out venture, where a lot of innocent people suffer?

If he's planning on speaking at all, I'd say the chances are approximately 100%.

Iraqi Chemical WMDs sent by Saddam to Libya before our Iraqi invasion, sold through “our guys” in Libya after Ghaddafi fell, to the most radical elements of the Syrian “opposition”, and used by them, undercover, now, while pointing fingers at Assad, to justify our greater involvement on their behalf.

From day one the Syrian “opposition” - internally much weaker than everyone outside Syria believes - has known that creating more martyrs is the only way to boost their own legitimacy and woo support from the west.

Who are they kidding here? These ‘rebels’ are AQ terrorist and are killing civilians, some even going so far as to dine on their hearts for crying out loud!! This is ridiculous, but I am sure the bleeding hearts will swallow it hook line and sinker. Our country is doomed
