Jim ,so you know someone who can tell us the process for asphyxiating hundreds of people at one ( up to 1500 according to holocaust literature ) using an insecticide (zyklon-b) ? Jim , in the 1930s US Customs imported zyklon-b to delouse the clothing and possesions of Mexican migrants coming across our southern border. The Germans used this insecticide (zyklon-b) just for this purpose . To claim that the Germans could use this insecticde to asphyxiate up to 1500 people at one time in some improvised room is hilarious ! To claim that the Germans could asphyxiate one person to death with this insecticide would be technically challenging let alone thousands repeatedley in different locations by constantly alternating personel is NONSENSE !

"History does not repeat itself, but it often rhymes," said Mark Twain.

Observing the uprising in Syria, the atrocities, the intervention by rival powers, it all calls to mind the Great Rehearsal for World War II, the Spanish Civil War.

The war began in 1936 with an uprising in Morocco of Spanish Nationalists against a Madrid regime seen as anti-Catholic, Marxist and Trotskyite. Vladimir Lenin had predicted that Spain would be the second Soviet republic in Europe.

The war would last three years, with Joseph Stalin providing aid to the regime, Benito Mussolini sending troops to fight...
