Great article.  

Nothing like this is being said on any of the news stations here in America. Which leads to one sided views, whatever the side the media wants, on many issues including the recent bombing of Syria.  

Was the gas attack horrific? Yes. But the response should have been more diplomatic and backed with independent investigations conducted by the UN.

Propaganda is what the USA now has---there is no such thing as debate, counter-arguing or critical thinking --it is all rigged just like Monday night wrestling. It is like a popularity contest but only the handsome know the truth. How could Syria do this? The chemical weapons were given over as Collin Powell wanted and furthermore-----if the Syrians were mistreating their people ---there would be a revolution.

@Palladin
In case you have missed it, there is currently a revolution going on in Syria and it has been raging for years to overthrow a Dictator who has during the conflict launched both Chemical weapons at his people and Barrel bombs.
@Mastermall
A vote in the UN security council for an investigation into the chemical weapons use was veto'd by Syria's ally Russia, even as Russia itself was calling for an investigation.
Clearly the Syrian government has no regard for anyone that is not on its side even if it is Syrian citizens. Killing children and other non combatants is just another day at the office for the Soldiers of the Government. The swift reply to the use of Chemical weapons was justified based on the previous use of such weapons by the Syrian Government and with current message intercepts linking the Government to Chemical weapons makers. They wont ever admit doing it, Criminals never admit to a crime when they are free.
