at least one guy has his head screwed right on. one of the best articles on the Internet since a long time.

and Trump is pedalling back, once more. that guy is unfit to be president. and unbelievable more and more. one day it is like this, the next day it is like that. if the people who brought him into office still have some -cojones- left, they should get him out of there. by all means with democratic waxs. not that he deserves it. fine if he made his millions that wax. it is the american way of doing business. lick the top and kick the to the bottom. but not how to run a country.

Not interested in everyone in the country. Their job is to look after the interests of (or to be the spokesperson for) just a small group

There are some in fact. about 20 years a go there was Bob Hawke in Australia. Whitlam before him (on the side of workers)
I am sure there were some of the business/professional elected as well, But I don't know which ones.

But these were 20 years ago and longer. Even one that was elected in Australia in 1996 John Howard was corrupted by the murdoch machine before he was kicked out in 2007 after the Iraq war

In the last 20 years or so, it's just Banker/Murdoch/weinstein funded politicians in office. Wasn't always that way

no evidence of a poison gas attack in Douma. this statement comes from a well known and highly respected Swiss institute. therefore the bombings by the USA and their coalition of the willing, or being coerced to be willing, was illegal.
wonder what reply this will get from the -happy bombers-? what meaning will this statement have on the sanctions towards Russia? or the Assad regime at all? not that he is an angel, but suppose facts should be seen as facts.
seen this before where first was bombed and than later is was found out that the accusations were not true.

No sarcasm there, back then they hoped Trump was their candidate and he would help in removing sanctions and so forth. Simonian, the woman who is the RT boss, wrote in her famous tweet regarding the subject that she was ready to ride in a car with an American flag around Moscow, so happy she was Trump came to power. They didn't know back then that the game Putin's RF has been playing since 2014 will be turned against them... Here is this famous tweet: https://twitter.com/m_simonyan/status/796281481874329600

The Basel Institute of Commons and Economics? You must be joking.

Founded in 2010 to 'assess the social goods of Basel.'

On its staff, it appears to have a software company founder, a computer specialist, a financial director with a background in economics, a professor of math, and a political scientist. (Oh, and some 'friendly people' with photos and names and no description of what they do).

Where do you get from this that the 'highly respected swiss institute' has any capacity to evaluate evidence of a chemical attack?

Look at their website and make your own judgment whether it is credible.

Here is the link to their website. Seems their specialty is 'local social goods'. Employs maybe a half-dozen people. Looks more like a hobby NGO.

If you can find a trace of evidence they have competency in chemical weapons, please advise.

The Financial Director's resume..."He has held several treasury and finance positions in the mobile telecommunication and food retail industries,,..."

So he was a cashier in a Produckti store :)

What is "social capital"? Never saw this term before...

From their website:

Up to now when you talk to senior scientists ("social scientists" ? ) in the field such
as to Jan van Deth from the German University of
Mannheim, 2002 author of a summary on measuring Social
Capital, you will learn that there are different concepts ( what? :) an exact scientific definition here, it modifies itself now and then :) ) of
Social Capital. After featuring a list of pitfalls while measuring
Social Capital van Deth concluded:

The open and evidently functionalist conceptualizations should
be seen as positive characteristics and not as violations of
methodological restrictions. In the end, the only relevant
arguments for using a concept are its usefulness, fruitfulness and
efficiency in genuine empirical research. The social capital
concept deserves to be appraised along these lines.
