The US and Agent Orange in vast quantities and repeated with people still dying.
The recent US bombing of civilians reaching an estimated 200 dead (more than this anti-Syrian accusation.)
Remember the Iraq accusations that were false and made up causing that country to become the mess it is.
The Syrian base bombed is active again and the US made a codswallop of the 59 rockets.
The time the Serbian capital bombed and a mess made including the Chinese embassy mess.
Moaning from America at the UN Council but has a long list of blocking Israeli action at that corner.
US going on about principles when it does not practice such a thing itself in the world or internally.
Why was bombing the Syrian airfield part of the "defence of the US?"
Hate. When it comes up with the US it is against any country that does not give in to it's corporates or take-over.
Why does the country need 16 security organisations and spend half the Earth's military bill?
BTW, the same applies for the White Helmets.Inside the Shadowy PR Firm That's Lobbying for Regime Change in SyriaHow the White Helmets Became International Heroes While Pushing U.S. Military Intervention and Regime Change in Syria
You sure do prattle on, boy! (Seriously, krake, AlterNet??)
That is because you [...] don't answer properly at all.
If it's time for Assad to go
the U.S. -outside of the ISIS presence- has no national interest in the Syrian civil war.
(I'd argue that Obama's "red line" comment and then his vacillation and inaction (politically) required the Trump administration's action. Putin will understand this...)
Our goal -the U.S. "position"- should be focused upon separating Russia from Iran.
Another thing about Russia's reaction:QuoteApparently all 50 Tomahawks struck home. Assuming that to be true, several deductions are possible. First, those are slow missiles. Top speed, about 500 miles per hour. They are very accurate, but they are slow. They were in the air for at least half an hour. They went past areas defended by Russian missiles of SA-6 and newer, any of them capable of shooting down a slow cruise missile like a Tomahawk. It is unlikely that the fleet of 50 Tomahawks, fired in a time on target pattern, were not observed; but so far as I know, not one was intercepted.(This, from Jerry Pournelle... You can find his stuff easily.)

Russia has vetoed a draft resolution at the UN Security Council that would have condemned last week's alleged chemical attack in Syria and demanded that Damascus cooperate with investigators.The resolution was presented by the US, UK and France, who reacted angrily to Russia's decision.It was the eighth time Russia has protected its ally at the council.The suspected chemical attack on rebel-held Khan Sheikhun on 4 April killed more than 80 people.Western allies blamed the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad and US President Donald Trump ordered missile strikes against a Syrian air force base in response.The proposed resolution would have backed an investigation on the ground by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.The Syrian government would have been told to provide military information, including flight logs, from the day of the alleged attack, and provide access to air bases.
"The main objection to the resolution is that it apportioned blame prior to an objective outside investigation of the incident... The outcome of the vote was predestined, because we disagreed categorically with a document that was fundamentally misconceived," said Vladimir Safronkov, Russia's deputy envoy at the Security Council, who also accused other states and international organizations of making "no effort" to inspect the site of the alleged attack.
The problem (for Russia and Syria) is that any independent investigation would squarely place the blame on Assad.
And what's the rationale for blocking investigation?
A series of chemical weapon attacks in March and April 2013 was investigated over the next few months by a special UN mission to Syria. A person with close knowledge of the UN's activity in Syria told me that there was evidence linking the Syrian opposition to the first gas attack, on 19 March in Khan Al-Assal, a village near Aleppo. In its final report in December, the mission said that at least 19 civilians and one Syrian soldier were among the fatalities, along with scores of injured. It had no mandate to assign responsibility for the attack, but the person with knowledge of the UN's activities said: 'Investigators interviewed the people who were there, including the doctors who treated the victims. It was clear that the rebels used the gas. It did not come out in public because no one wanted to know.'
