      The UN will not rumble. They will scare from the pages of the media. And make films for educational channels. Well, Hollywood will already attract superheroes to save the whole world.

    And whoever believes them, the hegemon of the team did not let them believe. Americans do not consider it necessary to prosecute Igovites, it will be like Saddam while he poisoned Kurds and Iranians with gas, he was untouchable as soon as he carried out the suicidal order to attack Kuwait immediately found weighty arguments.

    But as usual they will say that Assad is to blame for everything, or they will start a decade-long investigation, because everyone knows where ISIS has chemical weapons from, but everyone is silent ...

    It was also reported that the US has already received preliminary evidence of the use of toxic substances by militants, which were discovered during the study of fragments of exploded mines. There are three versions here. 1. The military operation to disarm Saddam from weapons of mass destruction failed. 2. Delayed with the decision to destroy the chemical. weapons in Syria (everyone was waiting for Assad toppled) and the militants were able to steal a bit. 3. Throw themselves a little. Wherever you look, Americans intervened everywhere.
