    Fortuneately the number of people waking up to the propaganda machine's failing integrity is growing. I've seen videos of a bombed-out "Research Facility" and a bombed- out "Convoy". Both were short and inconclusive. No one seems to notice that both sides are free to lie with impunity; the real reason for "whatever" happened was to draw attention to Syria and the much-touted "need" to send foreign troops in. Our press told us that it was a chemical weapons plant- funny, they never mentioned that when Hillary was trying to invade- and air- defense missiles aren't a threat (this one might reach 30 miles, maybe) to population centers. So what is really going on? Seems that Palestinian statehood and an Israeli withdrawal to original borders might make more sense that all of these brat-child tantrums.
