There are reliable sources and actual journalists who report that the gassings in Ghouta were probably staged by foreign rebels who, in hopes of appealing to the United States's "red line" on chemical weapons, found it easy to murder some innocent people in return for "saving hundreds of thousands" by encouraging NATO/USA/GCC to become involved with an "actual invasion" instead of just covertly running millions in guns, fighters and aid to the rebel cause. As to where they got these chemical weapons, they probably didn't get them from inside Syria.

no, you see, the US set the Chemical Weapons line completely arbitrarily, not htinking of any kind of strategic significance of broadcasting to their own mercenaries what it would take for them to lend them the full power of its arsenal. How dare u suggest that there are elements of the US military and state apparatus that would stoop so low as to kill civilians to achieve strategic objectives?

I exposed the CIA plot to kidnap and gas babies to my graduate seminar, not one of them even tried to dispute my flawless logic and superior ideology. Now tell me, "comrade", what have YOU done to fight imperialism lately?

You claim to be informed about Syria but plainly you are not reading any actual Syrian journalists. Try Sharmine Narwani. As for your quaint faith that the CIA and/or US contras would never hatch a plot to hurt anyone, certainly not children, you can read just about anything on any post WWII US proxy war eg http://www.amazon.com/Washingtons-War-Nicaragua-Holly-Sklar/dp/0896082954 or http://www.amazon.com/Degraded-Capability-Media-Kosovo-Crisis/dp/074531631X or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Cyclone or http://www.michelcollon.info/IMG/article_PDF/article_a3234.pdf or http://www.amazon.com/Rwanda-New-Scramble-Africa-Imperial/dp/1926824946 and on and on

"opium production explodes due to billions spent." Sometimes I amuse myself by watching speeches from political people and invert what they are saying; it often rings more of truth than whatever they started with. Find your own fun, rhizzoners, find your own fun

My line is, "Of course I don't support Assad but this isn't about Assad, what I want here is to stop another US war and to stop the US from funding another war." It works fine and it's actually the position of most Americans, it may not match your position but it's a viable platform for anti-imperialist advocacy in the US.

For my part I don't believe for a minute that you're going to win people over to the Damascus line, you've had 3 years to do it and you've gotten nowhere, not in the US, not in the Middle East. I think this project is going nowhere and you're fooling yourself when you say it is. You say this is the best opportunity in ever to win people over, okay, let's check back in five years and you can either throw it back in my face or explain why that opportunity was squandered.

im not offering you a guarantee of success, lol and you cant really force me into one. Your line is definitely the easy one to sell, its also completely ineffective because it rests on the fiction that "intervention" is a future peril. It wont stop shit and on top of that it cedes the entire field to U.S. propaganda.

I also want to disabuse you of the notion, Lessons at the risk of me posting rep, that I have been trying "the Assad line" for 3 years. I've actually spent most of those years advancing your line, and then events happened such as the effective kneecapping of the U.S. push for bombing by Moscow and Damascus and the Stratfor leaks and Hersh's stories and so on and I realized I had been dumb and I was won over by "the Assad line", i.e. what Crw had to say about the patriotic bourgeoisie, so dreams really do come true. i'm not the world's greatest socialist but I'm proof that the system works and I for one won't mock you if you change your position.

#540
maybe you should have shared a situation where a black guy completely unrelated to him said something different, and noted that they were both black
