The Common-Sense War?

Does the U.S government has proof that Syrian President Bashar Assad ordered the chemical attack on Aug 21 outside Damascus? Do they even have evidence that the attack was done by the Syrian military? They say "Yes", but the U.S government has not shown any of it yet to the world.

Now, we know why. It seems that their so-called evidence depends on..."common-sense".

Over the weekend, White House chief of staff Denis McDonough said during a public relations blitz that a  "common-sense test" dictates that the Syrian government is responsible for a chemical weapons attack. He admitted that the White House do not have "irrefutable, beyond-a-reasonable-doubt evidence" but "common-sense" says that President Assad was responsible for the attack.

Really? That's the best the U.S government got? They want to launch an attack on Syria based not on evidence but on "common-sense"? Look, common-sense may have a place in this world but no one launched a war based on common-sense! After all, common-sense says that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and we all know how that turned out. If common-sense is the best the U.S government has, then I am totally against an attack on Syria.

If the U.S government want support from the world for an attack on Syria, then they need to come out with "evidence". Common-sense is just not going to cut it. Hell, it's not even close!
