The MIT ex-prof's report I posted above says clearly what I had not read anywhere in MSM: The SARIN came from an artillery shell found inside a bomb crater. The shell shows that it was damaged from outside - as would happen if were either blown out of an ammo dump, or deliberately hammered in after...

Re: Levant crisis - III

Curious, if the front lines were frozen right now, would the US/EU/Sunnis get what they wanted? An alternative natural gas supply to Europe via pipelines from Qatar? Or do they want more, like an all-out humiliating defeat and strategic loss to Russia? Hard to predict the end game.
