TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Leaders on both sides of the aisle in Congress, in the media, in our intelligence services, and virtually every overfunded think tank in Washington have suddenly aligned tonight on a single point of agreement. America must go to war in Syria immediately. Bashar Al Assad cannot continue to lead that country. He must be overthrown.

Assad is an evil man, they tell us. His latest crime is a chlorine gas attack carried out over the weekend by his forces against a rebel-held suburb of Damascus. Assad's poison gas suffocated children. Pictures of the aftermath of that are all over the internet and they are horrifying. Assad is a monster. That's the official story. Almost everyone in power claims to believe it. The push to war in Syria, by the way, has united politicians from both sides. 

[...]

Trump has to take action in Syria, everyone nods sagely. That ought to make you nervous. Universal bipartisan agreement on anything is usually the first sign that something deeply unwise is about to happen. If only because there is nobody left to ask skeptical questions. And we should be skeptical of this. Starting with the poison gas attack itself. All the geniuses tell us that Assad killed those children, but do they really know that? Of course they don't really know that. They are making it up. They have no real idea what happened.
