A 'strong common sense' test is all it takes to find Bashar al-Assad guilty of the Ghouta chemical weapons holocaust and necessitate the unleashing of a 60-90 day bombing campaign (just for starters) as punishment. This is the nation that - because common sense dictated - sent in an army of SWAT paramilitaries to deal with a misbehaving 107 yr old
, with predictable results. As time goes on the US case for war becomes less not more convincing.
The White House has admitted it has no "irrefutable" evidence of Mr
Assad's involvement in the August attack, but said a "strong
common-sense test irrespective of the intelligence" suggested his
government was responsible.
"We've seen the video proof of the outcome of those attacks," White House Chief of Staff Dennis McDonough said on Sunday.
"Now do we have a picture or do we have irrefutable
beyond-a-reasonable-doubt evidence? This is not a court of law and
intelligence does not work that way." Link
