And USA has retained about 7200-7300 nuclear weapons… Let’s make a war-crime case about Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Or the bombing of old Tokyo (made of wood) with napalm (100k dead)? Whatabout Dresden (with Brits) or Hanoi?
The big question : why Syria didn’t used such chemical weapons against ISIS or FSA, especially in open field areas????

Absolutely big question.

The Syrian chemical attacks did not happen when the SAA was down.
The SAA did not use them even in great need!

The Syrian chemical attacks happened when the terrorists were down!
The SAA did not need to use them when in the advantage anyway.

What tell us that?

Mattis is again saying things with no evidence. The remaining two chemical storage facilities that have been and are under the control of the US sponsored Terrorists in areas of Syria that the Elected Syrian Government has NOT controlled since the dates before and after the Chemical Weapons were removed under the auspices of the UN from the storage of the Assad military and destroyed by the US.

All of this US pantomime is of course an attempt of obfuscation due to their proxy terror gangs retreat.

The US have been lying on weapons of mass destruction before to justify a war of aggression. The US are no reliable source.

IMHO the missing 1-3 tons are where You say. In rebel hands.

IMHO. The claims against the government are typical US/UK war ruse.

With MI6 behind the White Helmets, very likely a way to deceive Trump… And it worked.

Mattis confirms that the US trained and financed terrorist forces have chemical weapons in Syria.

Yes. IMHO the US proxies have had the missing 1-3 tons of chemicals in the two storage facilities in their sector.

The only faction in Syria that withheld chemical weapons are the US proxy forces that repeatedly used them in false flag operations killing countless civilians including children. Children were also killed by White Helmets in front of the Oscar video cameras to make war propaganda. p.s. The US war propagandists want dying children ever since the Lusitania episode in WW I changed the opinion of the US to pro war. And they get them. The Lusitania was an arms carrier that the UK intentionally send into danger carrying US children. Now we are down to killing children to be used… Read more »

Good point about the Lusitania.
Anyway, as soon they point kids, no matter the side, it’s always crapaganda.

On May 19 2004 , less than three weeks after his forces pulled back from Fallujah, Mattis personally authorized an attack on a wedding party near the Syrian border. The Iraqi government said the strike left 42 civilians dead, including at least 13 children.

Mattis is making bold faced lies. Such a disgrace to the United States. he is another war mongering blood thirsty profiteer of big defense firm kickbacks. Am trusting GOD to put him and every other political figure responsible for their nation’s ongoing harm of Syria on a bed of affliction and that HE increase the affliction daily until they act to stop their nation’s heinous, immoral, unconscionable, egregious harm to Syria. GOD is not limited in the least by the U.S.’ superior military technology. Father, in Jesus’ name, do this until each responsible political figure stops their country’s harming of… Read more »
