It doesn't matter. The answer

It doesn't matter. The answer is not up for debate. What Ek said was BS. That's a fact.

But maybe he'll write a book about it.

In today’s White House press

In today’s White House press briefing, Sean Spicer gave us these head scratchers in an attempt to relay just how serious the Administration views this gassing event.

Adolf Hitler "didn't even sink to using chemical weapons" during World War II

"You had someone who was despicable as Hitler who didn't even sink to using chemical weapons,"

Tell that to the millions who were interned in the “Holocaust Centers”.

Trump’s going to have to send this rube to Mar-a-Lago to pick up golf balls, to keep him from further embarrassing himself and his boss.

I'm not surprised Spicer made

I'm not surprised Spicer made that kind of mistake after all he did grow up in either obama's 56th or 57th state and everyone knows that the conservatives kept cutting education funding for those states. Thankfully he didn't grow up on one of the island in danger of tipping over .....

He's yet to sink to the intelligence level of Marie Harf, who stated that ISIS members just needed job offers and they would stop slicing off heads.

Spicer have any independent

Spicer have any independent investigation of the "supposed Sarin Gas attack", naw just BS from some CIA source, the same sources that the wsj nyt and wapo cited us to go to war against just about anyone over the last 16 years.

New boss same as old boss, but at least Obama didn't have his young daughters deciding what our favorite Ice Cream should be.

Has anyone noticed that CHINA

Has anyone noticed that CHINA has now threatened NKorea with military action? That is a first.

From Zerohedge:
With everyone putting down new and/or revised "red lines", be it on Syria or North Korea, it was now China's turn to reveal its red or rather "bottom line", and in a harshly worded editorial titled "The United States Must Not Choose a Wrong Direction to Break the DPRK Nuclear Deadlock on Wednesday" Beijing warned it would attack North Korea's facilities producing nuclear bombs, effectively engaging in an act of war, if North Korea crosses China's "bottom line." The editorial in the military-focused Global Times tabloid, owned and operated by the Communist Party's People's Daily newspaper, said that North Korea’s nuclear activities must not jeopardize northeastern China, and that if the North impacts China with its illicit nuclear tests through either "nuclear leakage or pollution", then China will respond with force. “China has a bottom line that it will protect at all costs, that is, the security and stability of northeast China... If the bottom line is touched, China will employ all means available including the military means to strike back. By that time, it is not an issue of discussion whether China acquiesces in the US’ blows, but the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) will launch attacks to DPRK nuclear facilities on its own." This, as the editorial puts it, is the "bottom line" for China; should it be crossed China will employ all means available including the military means to strike back," warned the editorial.

Even now Russia is sharing info with the world about future gas attacks that it has uncovered with its Intel network. As to its accuracy. well its only as good as our CIA and military intel says it is. As to the bluster against the USA from Russia and China, That is to be expected. The leaders must look strong in front of their own people. Nothing wrong with that. I see no moves by either threatening the USA. The move i Syria has had is measured effect. Russia will carry on in public while working with the US behind the scenes.

China is going to look after its own interest and will flatten NKorea if it deems it necessary. China has already cancelled its coal trade with NK and made it known that it is most disgruntled with punymans unacceptable behavior. China is not going to take on the US military as it is not in their economic interest to do so. NK on the other hand is easily flattened and even a puppet government set up by China is preferable to the crazy utterances by lil kim.

Trump wins again.

ps; don't know if this is accurate or fake news but I hope it is true. It has been removed from zerohedge quickly but I do not know on whose say so.

Another sign of China's

Another sign of China's patience with Nkorea:

China rejects coal shipments from North Korea
Published time: 11 Apr, 2017 12:56

A fleet of North Korean cargo ships laden with coal is returning to their home port of Nampo after China ordered its trading companies to refuse the shipments, Reuters reports quoting shipping data.

‘Catastrophic consequences’: N. Korea vows to retaliate against deployment of US strike group

This appears to show China is committed to the ban on imports of North Korean coal after Pyongyang carried out globally criticized missile tests. Coal is the crucial export product of the isolated state, especially the deliveries of the type used for steel making - coking coal.

To curb coal traffic between the two countries, Chinese customs ordered companies to return their North Korean coal cargoes starting from April 7, according to Reuters sources.

Two million tons are stranded at Chinese ports; the agency reported quoting a source at Dandong Chengtai, one of China's biggest buyers of North Korean coal.

To reduced the shortfall in coal imports, China resumed buying American coal this year. According to trade data, China bought over 400,000 tons by late February. The US did not export coking coal to China between late 2014 and 2016. However, President Donald Trump pledged to revive the country’s coal sector.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned that following the missile strike again Syria, North Korea could be the next. Beijing and Washington have reportedly agreed to impose tougher sanctions against Pyongyang if it carries out nuclear or long-range missile tests.

President Trump tweeted on Tuesday that a trade deal between China and the US depends on how Beijing tackles North Korea.

“I explained to the President of China that a trade deal with the US will be far better for them if they solve the North Korean problem! North Korea is looking for trouble. If China decides to help, that would be great. If not, we will solve the problem without them!” he posted.

A few months ago, South Korea

A few months ago, South Korea's biggest shipping line was bankrupt and could not even buy the fuel to get its ships home.

"Adolf Hitler "didn't even

"Adolf Hitler "didn't even sink to using chemical weapons" during World War II

"You had someone who was despicable as Hitler who didn't even sink to using chemical weapons,"

Tell that to the millions who were interned in the “Holocaust Centers”."

To quote myself from another thread:

"Not that it will make any difference, but the Germans in WW2 did not use chemical weapons. They did use a pesticide to murder millions of innocent civilians, just as they used carbon monoxide (and bullets), but it wasn't "weaponized". There are history books full of discussions about why the Nazis didn't use chemical weapons, with speculations that Hitler having been gassed himself in WW1 hated them, or fears that the Allies would retaliate with their own weapons; there are some historians who believe that the Nazis mistook external aircraft gas tanks for nerve gas canisters.

So, to recap: professional historians have never said that the Nazis used "chemical weapons", quite the opposite; Syria has used "chemical weapons"--bombs specifically designed to carry WMDs; and Spicer was correct in his terminology. Not that it will matter to those who prize the Narrative over silly things like the truth..."

What about those aluminum

What about those aluminum tubes and Yellow cake and "the mobile biological labs" out in the desert.

This little vial I'm holding holding right here said the Colon, and you buy it all over again, just like lambs to the slaughter because "your" guy is in there now.

Foreigners, some foreign organizations and certain powerful countries are often bossing around Syria. As if terrible damage done by the outsiders would not be enough. Ms. Segi is enraged about this fact:

“There have been so many seminars, conferences and meetings on Syria, yet the Syrian people are very rarely invited. All these events are ‘about them’ but without even inviting them, and without listening to them.”
