    Assad had nothing to gain by gassing his own people and everything to lose because it would then give his enemies the justification they wanted to get boots on the ground. It's all CIA/Mossad false flags carried out by their extremist proxies like al nusra and ISIS

    It’s the oil, gas and pipelines!: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-0...migrant-crisis

    Indeed, tensions were building between Russia, the U.S. and the European Union amid concerns that the European gas market would be held hostage to Russian gas giant Gazprom. The proposed Iran-Iraq-Syria gas pipeline would be essential to diversifying Europe’s energy supplies away from Russia.

    Turkey is Gazprom’s second-largest customer. The entire Turkish energy security structure relies on gas from Russia and Iran. Plus, Turkey was harboring Ottoman-like ambitions of becoming a strategic crossroads for the export of Russian, Caspian-Central Asian, Iraqi and Iranian oil and even gas to Europe.

    The Guardian reported in August 2013:

    “Assad refused to sign a proposed agreement with Qatar and Turkey that would run a pipeline from the latter’s North field, contiguous with Iran’s South Pars field, through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and on to Turkey, with a view to supply European markets – albeit crucially bypassing Russia. Assad’s rationale was ‘to protect the interests of [his] Russian ally, which is Europe’s top supplier of natural gas.’”



    Note the purple line which traces the proposed Qatar-Turkey natural gas pipeline and note that all of the
    countries highlighted in red are part of a new coalition hastily put together after Turkey finally (in exchange for
    NATO’s acquiescence on Erdogan’s politically-motivated war with the PKK) agreed to allow the US to fly combat
    missions against ISIS targets from Incirlik. Now note which country along the purple line is not highlighted in red.
    That’s because Bashar al-Assad didn’t support the pipeline and now we’re seeing what happens when you’re a
    Mid-East strongman and you decide not to support something the US and Saudi Arabia want to get done.

    Knowing Syria was a critical piece in its energy strategy, Turkey attempted to persuade Syrian President Bashar Assad to reform this Iranian pipeline and to work with the proposed Qatar-Turkey pipeline, which would ultimately satisfy Turkey and the Gulf Arab nations’ quest for dominance over gas supplies. But after Assad refused Turkey’s proposal, Turkey and its allies became the major architects of Syria’s “civil war.”

    the next war will be China and Russia vs the U.S. The U.S will be stretched thin on all fronts as it tries to deal with multiple enemies in Asia, Middle East and Europe/Russia. the era of proxy wars is ending, and outright war is imminent. as the war prolongs, U.S states will be divided. there will be states wanting to end the war enough that they'd declare independence. civil War ensues, leaving the U.S broken. the war is lost and China and Russia divides the spoils of victory. a new cold war begins between China and Russia. the race to colonize Mars begins between the two powers.
    Loneliness isn't being alone with no one to talk to. Loneliness is being surrounded by so many people, none of whom sees the real you. Loneliness isn't an island. It's a sea of people moving through you and past you. It's a storm of empty days and empty moments, going through the motions and hoping that just for one day your emptiness is filled.

    Loneliness isn't a state of being alone, but a state of not being fully understood.
