/Dale says this on his website (http://right-mind.us/)/*:   "Update*: 
Ghazi chose to respond to this post on Moscow’s Vision2020 Venom2020 
I’m posting his comments here in full so you can follow up on them for 
yourselves. Let me guarantee you, as a military professional and 
retiree: the USA has not been using chemical weapons. That’s a fantasy 
from the far left progressives. See for yourselves the sources that he 
cites: all left-leaning with an axe to grind. Even the Wikipedia article 
he cites refutes the claim 
Obviously, Dale's "right-mind" is made up, despite concrete evidence to 
the contrary; it is simply a matter of faith! "USA has not been using 
chemical weapons"--not even napalm/agent orange in Vietnam in the 
1960s-70s; no "napalm girl" story!!
On Israel's stockpile of WMDs and how it evolved, here is the full

Interesting observation: "Bless his heart. Moscow’s Emeritus Professor 
must be getting his fake news these days from the far-far left, out of 
orbit progressive websites. He says that the USA, under Gen. Mattis, has 
used chemical weapons in Iraq and Afghanistan. And that Israel has been 
using chemical weapons in Gaza!"
Here are some sources for Dale and others to explore--right-mindedly, 
but more importantly, _open-mindedly_; no "fake-news," "no alternative 
facts," but _absolutely verifiable facts_.  Given his meritorious career 
with the U.S. Navy, however, one would have thought Dale would be quite 
familiar with these facts.
(1) A few sources that provide evidence about Israel's use of chemical 
Haaretz, 10/22/06; New York Times, 1/21/09; 
"Israel used depleted uranium shells in Syria," Jerusalem Post, 5/6/13; 
also see 
As for Israel's stockpile of nuclear/chemical weapons, see this BBC 
documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dk_6CCZ0gCY
*A must--The following website provides pictures of Gaza children, 
killed by Israeli chemical weapons (phosphorous gas), summer 2014........*
(2) As for Fallujah (Iraq), see Wikipedia (with numerous references): 
"Fallujah, the Hidden 
See Newsweek, ll/22/04;
; The Fallujah operation was called, "Operation Phanthom Fury").  Also 
see The Independent (UK), 11/8/05; The Guardian, 11/15/05.
Also check Amnesty International reports, Human Rights Watch, Israel's 
Human-Rights group B-Tselem, Red Cross, etc.
One can also further explore these issues on various websites and other 
sources (including books, professional articles).

      Ghazi: Chemical Weapons Used by USA!

    Featuredby Dale <http://right-mind.us/author/dale/>


    Bless his heart. Moscow’s Emeritus Professor, Shaikh M. Ghazanfar
    <http://www.webpages.uidaho.edu/%7Eghazi/resume.html>, must be
    getting his fake news these days from the far-far left, out of orbit
    progressive websites. He says that the USA, under Gen. Mattis, has
    used chemical weapons in Iraq and Afghanistan. And that Israel has
    been using chemical weapons in Gaza!

    He writes in the /Moscow-Pullman Daily News/

        The recent chemical-weapons carnage in Syria is universally
        condemned – and rightly so. The gruesome pictures humanized even
        President Donald Trump (“no child of God should suffer such
        horror”), and he responded appropriately.

        However, Nikki Haley, our UN ambassador, had noted, “We don’t
        know yet the source of yesterday’s attack.”

        And the UN is investigating. Former Sen. Ron Paul and others
        suggest Syrian President Bashar Assad couldn’t have done it.
        Thus, some wonder if the “Iraq has WMD” fiasco is being repeated.

        Be that as it may, *we too have used chemical weapons, most
        recently in Fallujah, Iraq, led by Gen. James Mattis* (now
        defense secretary, nicknamed “Mad Dog” for his callous disregard
        of human life); *he also employed them in Afghanista*n.
        Ironically, he recently reminded the world of the Geneva
        Convention ban against chemical weapons. The horrific legacy of
        depleted uranium continues in Iraq, with stillbirths and birth
        defects still occurring in what Iraqi doctors call “genocide.”

    Gen. Mattis didn’t earn the nickname “Mad Dog” because he was using
    chemical weapons! Here’s a link to a /CNN/ article that explains
    where that nickname came from: /Mad Dog was a Nickname Given by the

        And *Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu displayed his
        usual hypocrisy*. He “was shocked and outraged” to see “babies
        suffocating.” He forgets *his own burning of Palestinian
        children in Gaza with phosphorus gas in 2014 and in earlier
        Israeli invasions of Gaza and Lebanon, even Syria; and his
        justice minister applauded the poisoning of “little snakes.”*

    Doesn’t look like Ghazi has much love for the Israelis, either.

        Even Saudis have employed chemical weapons in Yemen.

        These events are documented in U.N. investigations and various
        human rights reports.

        Indeed, it is our short-sighted imperial privilege: for the same
        deeds, condemning and punishing some, engaging ourselves;
        ignoring or condoning others.
