"Trump went on to say that he is leaving the option open for a potential ground invasion of Syria if any troubling evidence emerges that the Russian government manipulated the outcome of the 2016 presidential election."

Remember when we bombed Libya?

Neither do the "liberals" who supported it.

Roy wrote:Yes. According to the "Syrian Observatory for Human Rights." That has to be an extremely reliable source. Not surprised that Reuters uses them though.


Right.
Russian state-run television news, that Roy cites as reliable. But Reuters, one of the least biased, most respected straight news sources ever, he sneers at. Why the fuck did no one else call Roy out for this bullshit?

The Syrian Observatory For Human Rights (which I assume Roy automatically dislikes because he incorrectly assumes it's based in Syria) is also generally well-regarded by people who actually give a fuck about facts, although they are sometimes fairly criticized for their unwillingness to share their raw data and methodology.

Yep, I see deplorable Donnie Trump didn't waste any time this time around trying to accurately determine blame before launching his latest atrocity, in the way of almost all (war criminal) American "presidents" (in Trump's case) of the post WWII era. However....

You're kidding, right?

How would this play out?

Rational person: Roy, RT is a propaganda outlet, and Reuters is well-respected news organization.
Roy: Can I sell you can of checkerboard paint, you stupid ignorant troll. PFffft.

Sean Spicer on the Syrian gas attack: "Even Hitler didn't sink to using chemical weapons."

Got that? Hitler never gassed anybody.

That means the Trump administration thinks Zyklon B is just a pesticide.
