9. I see you still believe RT and sputnik on the Assad gas attacks

The signature of the gas used matched the gas Assad had. Not to mention the rebels did not have airplanes -- and the gassing was by plane. There is a huge difference between being antiwar and believing propaganda.

It clearly was NOT the US. The last thing Obama wanted was for the "red line" to be crossed - as you can see by his reaction afterward. It was not in the interest of Russia to do it themselves. I assume you also believe that the Russians and Assad did not bomb the UN convoy in Aleppo. What is clear is the US was seen as NOT having a credible leverage of potential military action when teh Obama administration pushed all sides to follow a 2014 UN resolution to diplomatically end the violence.

At this point, we KNOW the disinformation that the Russians spread both through outlets like RT and Sputnik and through social media.
