For example, there is no serious question about who was responsible for dropping a napalm like incendiary on a playground as documented in this BBC report because the incendiary bomb was dropped by a Mig jet and only the Assad regime has those.
Similarly, any serious examination of the sophisticated chemical attach carried out in East Ghouta shows that only the Assad regime's chemical weapons units have those capabilities. Those like Amy Goodman and her guest yesterday on Democracy Now, Phyllis Bennis, try to obscure who is slaughtering Syrians by blowing smoke around this latest chemical attack, should consider that they are defending a mass murderer who has killed tens of thousands with conventional weapons and is actively killing children even as they mount a defense of him.

A BBC team inside Syria filming for Panorama has witnessed the aftermath of a fresh horrific incident - an incendiary bomb dropped onto a school playground in the north of the country - which has left scores of children with napalm-like burns over their bodies.
Eyewitnesses describe a fighter jet dropping the device, a low explosion, followed by columns of fire and smoke.
Ian Pannell and cameraman Darren Conway's report contains images viewers may find extremely distressing.
