    I just cannot understand how so many otherwise reasonably sane people in the international community are prepared to just accept the assurances of the US and blindly trust in this purported intelligence, when no solid evidence is yet in evidence! In fact, au contraire ~ the finger points persuasively the other way.

    One cannot help but surmise that the influence of the pro-zionist Israel lobby is so embedded as to somehow mesmerize opinion. Perhaps the irresistible allure and beneficence of Saudi/Qatar petro-dollars also has something to do with it…

    Money and religious guilt ~ they seem to inspire exceptional hypnotic powers.
