Western Mainstream Media Propaganda Fans the Flames of War

We have seen this many time before. The US media and both US political parties are simply nauseating in their lust for war. There has been no concrete proof that it was in fact Assad who used chemical weapons. Even before a proper impartial, international investigation, the Trump administration, backed by both parties, illegally attacked the sovereign state of Syria. Furthermore, even if the Syrian state bears responsibility, unilateral US military aggression is not the proper response. The American media has a parade of guests who state emphatically that it was Assad and are never questioned by the hosts. We have seen the US government lie and create smokescreens time and time again, from Iraq to Yugoslavia, from Vietnam to Grenada. The United States has, once again, blatantly violated basic international law and the norms of civilized conduct in international affairs.
