The US attacks on Syria could begin any day now, and the administration is hard at work selling the American public on the dubious narrative presented by the rebels as an excuse for war, with Secretary of State John Kerry leading the charge.
There’s no solid proof for the allegations of chemical weapon use by the Assad government, and the US is vigorously trying to keep the UN investigators from taking a serious look at the matter.
Rather, Kerry reiterated the story, noting that something happened in Syria and that Assad is known to have chemical weapons, and insisting that makes it “undeniable” that it was a chemical weapons attack, even though the experts say that the symptoms of chemical exposure shown in the rebels’ videos are not necessarily in keeping with the sorts of weapons Syria is known to have.
Still, this has never been so much about “proof” as about being officially convinced, and Kerry’s comments underscore that the US plans to attack very soon, with recent sources saying it could happen in the next two weeks.
Oddly, nobody seems to have told Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel about the plan, as Hagel today reiterated days-old talking points that the US is still looking at intelligence and hadn’t drawn any conclusions, even though everyone else in the administration is long past that point, and has set about trying to ridicule anyone who rejects their conclusion.

The world is sick and tired of US fabrications (official statements by government officials and media hype) that seem to be a prelude to another use of American weaponry on a country that is not a threat to them but which could upset the stability of Israel. Just how much the US tax payer should have to pay to pacify Israel is never taken into account. Its as if US foreign policy is always dictated from Israel through its advisers to Washington.
ABC, NBC, CBS network news, CBS radio, every AP wire report is carrying this entire charade without one source asking about proof of these attacks. And not one news source save Anti-War questions the absurd claim by Obama that it's "already too late" for any truth about what really happened.
I thought it was just me, didn't these "news" outlets used to have at least one dissenting opinion or spokesman for the opposition that they would gang up on or laugh at. Even a Bagdad Bob would be a welcoming sight these days.
There is NO proof and what is called rebels losing the fights against the Syrian people, so, what is left for Obama administration but to follow Bill Clinton and Bush lies about wars in Balkan and then Iraq. If that doesn't works then there is plan B, USA and what they call "international community" can bypass the international laws not respecting any other laws and start killing Syrian nations whom are defending their country against the Saudis barbarians and the "oppositions" whom are also on the payroll of UAE and Saudis tyrants regimes. For "rebels" asking Israel to help them out is yet another sign that they are losing the war they started, signaling the fact and that they need every help they can get, as for USA, England, German and French governments, to starts lying to their teeth as Kerry dose, these people have no respect for anything even if they are called "French social democrats, or liberal Neo fascism or "Ottoman Empire" of Turkey., what they have in common, as international community, is to protect regimes that will bribe them to buy their weapons of mass destructions that can be used to protect these regimes against Syrian people, than again USA and EU nor Turkey regimes have no other alternative then creating such IC and to work with or support terrorists and terrorism.
Undeniable…because Kerry says so… What's REALLY undeniable is that Kerry is a tool. I'd watch what Hagel does in counterbalance. This is where Obama finds out what he got when he nominated Hagel. Will he be the independent thinker in the Administration or will he sell his soul for the cause? I would not be surprised if he resigns if forced to acquiesce to louder voices around Obama. Then again, I also won't be surprised if he sells out.
Duh …. he'd never have passed the job interview if he ever gave any sign of not selling us out.
Kerry rails about "moral obscenity and accountability." What a crock. What is "undeniable" here is Obama's determination to war without consequence. Turns out Mr. Hope and Change is just another psychopath that feasts on slaughter.
"The indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity."
I wonder if Kerry thinks it is a "moral obscenity" when Obama's drones kill " women and children and innocent bystanders"? Oops! Forgot, those aren't chemical weapons.
You forget to mention Israel dropping cluster bombs on Lebanon which is violating international law,as you said, "those aren't chemical weapons."
The irony here is it is UNDENIABLE that America uses Bombs to blow up women and Children civilians and nothing is done to that waste of space!
So, Mr. Kerry … please tell us now how you ask men to die for a mistake?
They're not asking and I don't think it was ever a mistake. We're just not privy to the Master Plan.
Bill Clinton killed people to divert attention from a stained blue dress.
Obama is going to kill people to raise his popularity ratings and divert attention from the fact that he's spying on every American, including political opponents and journalists.
Same playbook. When in political trouble at home, push the fire button on the cruise missiles.
Kerry is just plain…weird.
Clearly the idea that Obama would be involved in creating the gas attack in order to have an excuse to bomb Syria is absurd. America is a peace loving nation, that invades other nations and destroys their leadership in order to ensure that those who oppose the leadership have their chance to take over. And the proof is that most of the nations America invades are taken over by governments who are considered backed by terrorists groups.
We Americans believe in freedom. And We feel that anyone who can afford our gas and bombs has the right to use them in a hygenically applied program of moral concern. We have evidence which we cannot disclose that proves Syria used chemical weapons against it's own people in order to…..just be really mean to people.
So of course we must attack and kill more people so that we can bring peace to Syria and also to show them that their "civil" war is none of their business, and they should just let America decide the outcome which has been very frustrating.
We must encircle Russia and China. They are the real threat to our banks and economy.
THat makes sense, doesn't it.
Sorry to say, but isn't there a solid source that could be cited in the article disputing the "undeniable" evidence of a chemical attack. The closest thing here that comes to doubt is Hagel waiting for evidence. Let me know if I'm missing something.
The fallacy of argument from authority is wrong in any case. It does not even work as fallacy when nobody believes that authority anyway. After not closing Gitmo, assassinations, the non-war in Libya, there is not one shred of reason to trust these guys.
Everything is in reverse with psycopaths – keep that in mind. What they accuse others they, themselves are complicit of.
When Kerry discusses Syria's government and military – he is actually speaking of hired mercenaries on NATO-ZATO payroll. And who pays NATO's bills?
When Kerry says that the proof is undeniable – he is speaking of his own complicity. That's why he doesn't even blink saying that and consumes alcohol to fall asleep at night.
Karma… The best part is still yet to come…
