    Potassium fluoride can not be shipped out of the United States to other countries without a special license from the U.S. Department of Commerce because the compound is an important raw material in the manufacture of certain chemical weapons.

    It says there was an alternative use which would be reasonable given the climate, although I will clarify I know very little of the detail and know that often in business profit motives come first. What I will ask though is when is a car manufacturer liable for the use of a vehicle they produced when it is used in an armed robbery or some other illegal act? *Bearing in mind this refers to a component not the end product.

    Well, I read the journalists (the seasoned Middle Eastern correspondents Robert Fisk,Patrick Cockburn and Abdel Bari Atwan). Not just their stories. Their books too. Which amounts to thousands of pages. Been doing it on and off for the last 20 years, ever since Fisk started describing what the GIA was getting up to in Algeria.

    Their conclusions seem to pretty much dovetail with those of Scintillant.

    You know what?

    I think I'll carry on reading them.

    The same way I believed Tony Blair when he told us there was compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein held WMD.

    Perhaps we'd be more inclined to believe our governments if they did not have a track record of lying to the people again and again and again.

    The children in the video seem remarkably chatty for having recently been gassed with barrel bombs.

    I am glad that they are safe.

    "Compelling evidence" is not the same as proof. No matter,
    What is your proof that President Macron is a liar?

    Did you believe that business about Germany invading Poland. There was no actual evidence. The whole thing was staged.

    Fisk says there was no CW attack. It was just dust.

    So it's true, people are tired of experts.

    That dates back to the days when we trusted our governments, before they became puppets of corporate interests.

    I'm a bit confused by this post, and the fact that it has garnered three "likes". Are you referring to the staged attack on the radio station in Gliwice?

    Ah, no proof, as I thought.

    I was rather hoping you were going to post some videos taken by your observors on the ground, or at least some pictures from your fleet of drones above Syria. ;)
