France's President Emmanuel Macron says he has "proof" that the Syrian government attacked the town of Douma, near Damascus with chemical weapons last Saturday.
This is remarkable considering the fact that no investigation to actually find out what really happened and who is to blame for it has even occurred yet.
Must be some sort of French intuition or perhaps he is psychic or something.
Both Syria and Russia have requested that an investigation take place which will determine who is responsible for the attack on Saturday. The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) sent out the following on Twitter:
"In response to media queries, the Spokesperson for the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) confirms that the OPCW Fact-Finding Mission (FFM) team is on its way to Syria and will start its work as of Saturday 14 April 2018."
The investigators will not even begin working on the investigation until this coming Saturday, yet Macron says he already has "proof" that Syria is responsible. Apparently Macron is like many politicians on the "global warming" bandwagon who consider innuendo and rumors to be concrete fact and evidence.
Too many people are pushing very hard for war based solely on rumors without a single shred of evidence to back it up. They are willing to risk the lives of tens of thousands of our military and innocent civilians, or millions if the war turns nuclear as it has a strong possibility of doing.
Macron should do the entire world a favor and shut up. Let's wait and see what the investigators find before we start pointing fingers, placing blame, and potentially starting World War 3.
If the Syrian government is found to be at fault, then Russia should do the right thing by denouncing the attack, sever relations with Syria, step aside and pull their troops out of harms way before strikes commence.
However, if Syria is found not to be at fault, waiting for the investigation to conclude could prevent the needless slaughter of millions based solely on a rumor.
