Syrian government forces shell Qabun, Damascus with gas

Bloomberg headline, citing Al-Arabiya.

If true, that would be one of the stupidest military moves of all time. USD/JPY down about 10 pips on the headline.

Some are pointing out that Al-Arabiya is Saudi owned and that the Saudis are no friends of Assad.

  3. Adam, do you have a link

  4. People are becoming sick of all these wild rumours and lies. There must be persistent design here to drag the West in on false flag. Everyone must be careful to avoid being used again

  5. I don’t have a link, there is a headline and one-sentence story on BBG

  6. tried to search Al-Arabiya, nothing even similar

  7. Putin accussed Kerry of lying to Congress. There is no reason to think that the lies for war stopped after Iraq.

  8. Well it IS war after all, why worry about a few lies when you’re going to put bullets in people’s heads.

  9. What’s up, all the time i used to check blog posts here in the early hours in the morning,
