Response to synergie (Reply #141)

143. you don't present evidence - you tell me what you believe she said - but you never quote her

 

when I present quotes from her that directly contradict your beliefs, you neither acknowledge them nor refute them.

Then you falsely state that I "now accept that Assad did use chemical weapons in the past" which implies that I didn't until now.
It is hard for me to carry on a conversation when I have to step around your imaginary version of what I said.


What you and Dean seem incapable of understanding, is that

1. evidence of PREVIOUS use of chemical weapons is NOT PROOF that he used them THIS time. All of Dean's facts pertain
to previous use. Assad is not the only monster in the country, ISIS is also a monster.

which is why

2. All Tulsi wants is an investigation. MSF has determined generally that chemical weapons were present but not which type.
Sarin is hard to make, so we need to know if it is Sarin or not. There is a lot at stake here. Russia helped broker the deal in 2013 to destroy Assad's chemical-weapons stockpile.

3. Tulsi doesn't trust Trump to tell us the truth - although you and Dean do. Why do you suddenly believe Trump?


CNN's Wolf Blitzer asked Gabbard if she didn't believe the President, the secretary of state and Pentagon officials, all of whom came to the same conclusion: that Assad's regime was responsible. Gabbard mentioned the previous invasion of Iraq, and the intelligence that suggested Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, which turned out to be false. "So, yes, I'm skeptical," she said.
Gabbard said: "Why should we just blindly follow this escalation of a counterproductive regime-change war?"
