The Los Angeles Times has the story Putin calls for U.N. investigation of gas attack as G-7 nations reject new sanctions against Russia.
Instead of sanctions, the meeting’s final communique called for an investigation by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to determine who was responsible for the “war crime.” The U.S. and Britain say there is little doubt Assad’s forces are culpable.
Perhaps this is a sign that the wall of intimidation that the USA has built is starting to show cracks. It isn’t crumbling yet. We will have to see if the instinct to resort to reason can overcome the money of the oil interests. I wish there were little doubt that reason would win.
