And how is he winning? Do you truly believe he or his family will ever have the ability to rule as his father did? All he will win in this is a stay of execution until the next rebellion or if he abdicates.
Wrong. The UN mission had no mandate to determine who used the chemical weapons. Their hands were tied -- and this is the standard way to neuter an investigation. Render the truth unobtainable.
Actually, there is a lot of evidence that S Arabia supplied chemical weapons to its al Qaeda fighters in Syria. This is known.
