Raúl Ilargi Meijer — Any of this Sound Familiar?

This is not about Assad, it’s about you, and Theresa May and Trump and Obama and Hillary and W. and Merkel and Tony Blair and scores of French and German politicians who’ve kept the death racket alive all these years. It’s where the money is.

This sounds familiar:

Maybe the Syrians were trained in this stuff by the Russians....

Maybe they tried to use incapacitating gas and the children who have less developed lungs actually succumbed...

Reaching for straws, Matt. Makes no sense. The Russian security forces used an "incapacitating agent" not a chemical weapon. It was apparently some kind of sedative that knocked people out temporarily

BTW, the "incapacitating agent" that the US domestic security forces regularly employ is tear gas, which is categorized as a chemical weapon and prohibited in warfare. I've been at anti-war protests when tear gas was used in DC. These were protests and not riots. Ironically, it got into the ventilation system of various high-end apartments and office buildings, too, so lots more people got to enjoy the party. In addition, tear gas gets all over over people that are gassed, so those coming in contact with them to help are gassed indirectly. Feature or bug?

Tear gas is a chemical weapon banned in war. But Ferguson police shoot it at protesters.

Maybe they used an incapacitating gas and then just walked in and started beating the children over the head with hammers .... saw some photos with severe head wounds...

Serious question: Matt, are you being serious here?

Tom, trying to account for the Syrian jets. Any merit to the idea that maybe a Syrian regime air force pilot simply went rogue?

There are probably many possibilities. The purpose of an independent investigation is to weigh them against evidence.

The problem in this kind of situation is conducting an independent investigation that is actually objective. That is impossible likely impossible with the level of divisiveness.

This applies to many other issues, international and domestic. Different parties don't even agree on the facts because the facts are difficult to establish objectively.
