    In my pursuit to condemn modern day human trafficking and slavery I detest Assam and leaders like him. In your pursuit for peace, I agree that things should be a lot simpler.

    Germany s degaussa chemicals admitted selling a lot of stuff needed to make such evil weapons.....they should be held responsible.....the UN is silent on this since they always focus on anything Israel does and ignores true genocide everywhere else like Sudan.....degaussa was the company that mfg gas used to murder innocents during holocaust...Andrea Merkel had a special Parliament meeting about this.....German soldiers should be sent in to retrieve their chemicals...not American or Israelis.....

    Philip stop this lunacy. There are no points of comparison between what is happening in Syria and what happened in the Holocaust. You're an idiot if you even see a likeness.... or just a rablerouser.
