Will there be a war?
“There’s every indication that Assad did it,” said Theresa May, the Prime Minister of UK. She was paraphrasing Bush’s side-kick Tony Blair who said he had solid proof that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. In truth there is no indication, whatever, that Assad gassed his own people.
Assad had no motive. Slowly but steadily he is winning the war. He gains nothing from this biblical kind of annihilation of innocent women children and babies in the womb. He knows that any accusation of his doing it – even if he didn’t do it – would only bring him trouble, destroying the result of his perseverance in the face of opposition from the most powerful in the world – United States and its madcap president, the Shia-hating Saudi Arabia, most of the Arabian sheikdoms and, to some extent, the remnants of an Islamic State which has most of its tail between its legs.
