The Obama administration seems to have a one track mind and plan on firing missiles into Syria as soon as one of his should be disbarred lawyers gives him a letter saying he is justified. This is curious since all the announcements of imminent attacks happened prior to the UN inspectors checking out the site of the gas attack.
Opponents to the action point out that at the time of the attack, the Syrian army was pushing the Al Qaeda fighters backwards with ease. It is also curious that Assad would launch a gas attack three days after UN investigators arrived to look into another previous attack. It is also curious that the attack occurred in a residential neighborhood, near where the UN inspectors were staying and not in the nearby rebel camp. Opponents say that makes no sense.
