US Hints of Military Action in Syria
The US has issued the strongest signal yet that it intends to take military action against Syria, with secretary of state John Kerry saying it was "undeniable" that chemical weapons had been used in the country.
"Make no mistake," Kerry said, as cited by The Guardian. "President Obama believes there must be accountability for those who would use the world's most heinous weapon against the world's most vulnerable people. Nothing today is more serious, and nothing is receiving more serious scrutiny".
Kerry spoke hours after the UN team trying to look into claims of a poison gas attack in a Syrian suburb was turned back by sniper fire.
White House spokesman Jay Carnay commented:
"The fact that chemical weapons were used on a widespread basis, against innocent civilians, with tragic results is undeniable." "And there is very little doubt in our minds that the Syrian regime is culpable."
Carnay added that while the president is still considering the appropriate response, he had already concluded that the attack constituted a "horrific violation of an international norm".
Upon asked whether the US would take military action, Carney said the last time the administration determined chemical weapons had been used, "on a smaller scale", it had decided to provide opposition fighters with assistance.
"What we saw in Syria last week should shock the conscience of the world. It defies any code of morality," Mr Kerry said at a news conference on Monday.
"Make no mistake, President Obama believes there must be accountability for those who would use the world's most heinous weapons against the world's most vulnerable people."
This is factual and not from a Marvel Comic
As well as explosive bombs the United States Air Force dropped a considerable number of incendiary devices. The most infamous of these was napalm, a mixture of petrol and a chemical thickener, which produces a tough sticky gel that attaches itself to the skin. The igniting agent, white phosphorus, continues burning for a considerable amount of time. A reported three quarters of all napalm victims in Vietnam were burned through to the muscle and bone (fifth degree burns). The pain caused by the burning is so traumatic that it often causes death.
"Napalm is the most terrible pain you can imagine," said Kim Phúc, a napalm bombing survivor known from a famous Vietnam War photograph. "Water boils at 100 degrees Celsius (212°F). Napalm generates temperatures of 800 to 1,200 degrees Celsius (1,500-2,200°F)."
..."US hints"!? Have a look at the photo, John and his diggers tell honestly: "We are to kill". Pretext is so idiotic, so crazy that the organized by Hitler a staged “false flag” attack (on a German radio tower in the city of Gleiwitz, near the Polish-German border to make it look like Poland had attacked Germany) in order to provide a pretext for the invasion of Poland, so, the organized by Hitler gross provocation seems merely a chef-d'oeuvre. But John and his diggers have The Great End, and that End justifies All means, The Devil can cite Scripture for his purpose, right?.........John&Co bring Peace and Democracy, in brief..... Don't hinder them!
