In response to a clear false flag event in which Assad is alleged to have gassed his own people, unthinking fools on the left and right want Trump to do something.
Conscience has become the mayfly of our era: here today, gone tomorrow. For the moment, the world is transfixed by the horrific images from Douma, near the Syrian capital, Damascus. Dozens have died, and hundreds lie injured after what was quite clearly a chemical weapon attack.
Dead children, their mouths flecked with foam, chide us through our screens. Condemnation, calls for action, a global spasm of what Martin Amis calls “species shame”: the pattern of response to the long Syrian catastrophe has become almost ritualised.
Another Rush to Judgement
Fools like d’Ancona demand action, with no evidence as to who did what.
And curiously, this attack happened right as Trump announced he was pulling out of Syria.
Who needs evidence? Warmongers don’t need no stinkin evidence. On the rare occasions they decide evidence is necessary, they make it up or plant a false flag.
