Assadists say we can’t believe Assad gassed civilians because MSM reported it. MSM also reported the US dropped the “mother of all bombs” in Afghanistan. Do they think that a lie too?
They also say the Assad regime is not so monumentally stupid as to gas civilians & there is no proof he did. No one ever claimed his regime was stupid but only criminal against dissent & revolution. Though it can afford to be supremely stupid as long as it has the deranged remnants of the antiwar movement explaining how Assad would never gas civilians because he’s such a western secular kind of guy.
As for proof? Interesting that in an era of sophisticated military surveillance systems taking videos from satellites there is no undisputed proof. The US Pentagon & other military forces know exactly who gassed civilians & what other kind of bombs Syria & Russia are using against civilians. The refusal of the US to release that documentation shows which side the US is on because obfuscation & disputes about Assad’s weapons keep attention off the US role as counter-revolutionary ally of Assad.
