A ‘Conservative’ vision for America – Constant War – ‘John McCain: Obama’s ‘red line’ on Syria ‘written in disappearing ink’ – ‘U.N. has testimony that Syrian rebels used sarin gas: investigator’
Just like we invaded Afghanistan to ‘get bin Laden and then after 9 years found him in Pakistan.
Just like we invaded Iraq because they have Weapons of Mass Destruction…….that we could never find.
Now we have, according to Senator John McCain, the Syrian Government using chemical weapons…….yet apparently the ‘rebels’ are the ones who used it.
War – What is it good for…..
‘Referring to Israeli air strikes on targets close to Damascus over the weekend, McCain said: “Apparently the Syrians and Iranians have crossed a red line with the Israelis.”
McCain added, “Unfortunately, the red line that the president of the United States has written was apparently written in disappearing ink.”

The United Nations independent commission of inquiry on Syria has not yet seen evidence of government forces having used chemical weapons, which are banned under international law, said commission member Carla Del Ponte.
“Our investigators have been in neighboring countries interviewing victims, doctors and field hospitals and, according to their report of last week which I have seen, there are strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof of the use of sarin gas, from the way the victims were treated,” Del Ponte said in an interview with Swiss-Italian television.
“This was use on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities,” she added, speaking in Italian.
