I trust nothing the American state dept says and have felt that way for a long time.

Why would they make this up?

Interventionist reasons.

re: #3 Destro

The only reason this is a bad thing right now is because there is no side worth supporting.

Libya is turning out as I expected. A wobbly, post-revolutionary state. Like the US was at one point. Intervention can be a good thing.

However, I doubt this report. For one reason only. I can’t think of a time where a military used a Hallucinogen.

More likely would be contamination of food by Ergot.

True, though I can see Assad trying some sort of ‘deniable’ Chemwar agent. DoS would be more likely NOT to confirm it, given that if it were confirmed Assad was using WMDs (any weaponized hallucinogenic agent is a WMD, legally) it would virtually mandate intervention.

Bullshit. Tear gas is a chemical weapon. Phosphorus is a chemical weapon. Saying that is the trigger for intervention is insane.

Bullshit. The USA was not carrying on inter ethnic wars after the revolution.

re: #7 Destro

Yeah, the US was born perfect in every way, Native peoples respected and prospering, Black and White people living in harmony - North and South as one - no expansionist wars with it’s only neighbours. Oh, wait, actually America has history, not all of it pretty.

Libya went through hell under Q - he turned the people against each other quite deliberately (often with Western help), his fall was always going to be a mess and the Islamists were bound to pollute any liberation just as Communists would have in earlier generations

Any weapon that can cause mass destruction is a weapon of mass destruction.

Er. Yes it was. What the fuck sort of revisionist history is this?

We kept fighting the American Indians for more than a hundred years after the revolution.

You know full well the analogy is American on American fighting each other after the revolution (unless you want to include the Civil War a hundred years later). In Syria the revolution is really one underpinned by racial or religious animosities.

re: #8 Stoatly

The USA did not go through any thing like Yugoslavia did after her break up and Syria is more like Yugoslavia than anything else.
