Bolivia’s UN envoy held the US to account over its unreliability on WMD claims, in a moment that reminded the world of the false intelligence that lead to the Iraq Invasion. How can the US be believed over such claims in Syria, when it resists a ground investigation in Idlib, where it says the chemical attack carried out by the Syrian govt, took place? Assad says the US is looking for a pretext to militarily intervene. This, under a president who had promised less foreign intervention. At the same time, the Syrian govt says the US attacked Dayr al Zawr, causing the release of toxic gas, & the killing of many innocents, which is symbolic of what Syria has said all along: that militants have chemical weapons in their possession.
