Mattis Threatens Syria Wtih Military Action If US Finds "Evidence" Of New Sarin Attack

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis threatens Syria with a military action if the US finds hard evidence to back up the claims of another sarin attack in the country.

On February 2, Mattis told reporters that chlorine gas was known to have been weaponized in attacks in Syria. He further added that the US suspects the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad uses sarin nerve gas as a weapon on the battlefield.

“We are even more concerned about the possibility of sarin use,” the defense secretary said. “I don’t have the evidence, what I am saying is, that other groups on the ground, NGOs, fighters on the ground, have said that sarin has been used, so we are looking for evidence.”

“They would be ill-advised to go back to violating the chemical convention.”

In April 2017, the US conducted a cruise missile strike against a Syrian airfield following reports about the alleged sarin use in the town of Khan Shaykhun.

“We’re on the record and you all have seen how we reacted to that, so they would be ill-advised to go back to violating the chemical convention,” Mattis said.

The new series of accusations that the Syrian government uses chlorine or even sarine against the so-called “rebels” and the “rebel-held” areas appared amid the rapid advance of the Syrian Arab Army against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) in the province of Idlib. So, Washington likely rushed to weaponize the al-Qaeda propaganda to oppose the defeat of the terrorist group in Syria.

    There is no doubt they will find evidence. They will plant it.

    • FlorianGeyer

      ” They will plant it. ”

      Its a long tradition with the US institutions such as the FBI,CIA,Military,Congress etc Jerry :)

      • jerry hamilton

        I wonder if the evidence will be found wrapped up in Assad’s passport?

        • FlorianGeyer

          That’s a good point Jerry :)

    • Rüdiger Preiss

      They don’t plant it. They simply say they have evidence, then they show some images which prove nothing, Nikki Haley will hold up a few images of poor children at the UN and then they press the “send missiles” button. Who cares if there actually is evidence or not. Was there evidence in Iraq? Not a shred, only allegations. How many people got killed in Iraq during the war and as a direct result of it? Some sources claim around 1.5 Million. I say, a lot more – because people still get killed in the aftermath. Now that we KNOW there was no evidence, what has happened to those who are responsible? NOTHING. That’s why they’ll do the same sh*t over and over again.

        USA does not care whatever others think. USA has a plan and go after it even over against the whole World opinion, lack of evidence, or contradict evidences. The only nation which can stop this USA-Israel-NATO madness is RUSSIA.

            The Ringworm Children: Zionist genocidal experiments on Jews

            Jill Mann
            Tue, 12 Jan 2010 15:51 UTC

            In a series of articles, Israeli writer Barry Chamish reviews Israeli television’s 2004 expose of the deliberate mass radiation poisoning of 100,000 young Israeli immigrants from North African and Middle Eastern countries (Sephardim) with a screening of the award winning 2003 documentary film, The Ringworm Children.

            The story goes like this: With vast evidence from Nazi experiments in the concentration camps and the atomic bombing of Japan, the scientific community was well aware by 1951 of the short and long-term dangers of radiation, especially on children. The American government had banned forced radiation testing based on eugenics on humans prisoners, the mentally feeble, etc., but wanted human lab rats for its nuclear and other programs.

            In 1951, the director general of the Israeli Health Ministry, Dr. Chaim Sheba, flew to America and agreed, on behalf of the Israeli government, to supply the humans in exchange for money and nuclear secrets. Dr. Sheba returned to Israel with 7 x-ray machines, supplied to him by the American army.

            The x-ray machines were to be used in a mass atomic experiment with an entire generation of Sephardi youths to be used as guinea pigs. Dr. Sheba demanded that all North African children be sent to health centers to receive radiation therapy as a preemptive treatment for ringworm, normally treated with vinegar. Every Sephardi child was to be given 35,000 times the maximum dose of x-rays through the head. For doing so, the American government paid the Israeli government 300,000 Israeli liras a year (billions in today’s dollars).

        The Cuban missile crisis wasn’t a crisis at all.
        Their lies and callousness is relentless.
        The whole world is turning against them.
        I feel sorry for Americans, no one deserves a government as corrupt as they have.
        My government is more brain dead than corrupt but still evil.

            It does not appear all that hard to provide evidence that political oaths have been broken – however who is willing to argue treason and sedition in a high court?

      The only problem with the Sarin is that it’s signature was UK and they supplied the Sarin to Syria long ago, signatures in the compounds are different today. The sample provided last yearturned out to be UK Sarin and had no traces of the compounds destroyed of Syrian chemicals since they changed the formula.

        That free money is coming at too high a price.

    Mad Dog has a different opinion every 5 minutes. In another article published today, he states there is no evidence that the government used Sarin. All Syria’s chemical weapons were removed under U.N. supervision and turned over to the Americans for destruction starting in 2013. If sarin is found in Syria, it came from its illegal occupiers, the US and their terrorist mercenary armies.

  • Loz

    You have all missed the message. Sec. Mattis said:

    ““We are even more concerned about the possibility of sarin use, I don’t have the evidence, what I am saying is, that other groups on the ground, NGOs, fighters on the ground, have said that sarin has been used, so we are looking for evidence.”:

    WE don’t have the HARD evidence.

    HARD evidence was never before required by USA.

    Now, apparently, it is.

    He then points to what “NGOs, FIGHTERS ON THE GROUND” while deliberately avoiding naming which fighters.

    At some point, some official will begin to talk about the evidence for chemical weapons use coming from groups that are ‘suspected’ ‘might’ be affiliated with Al Qaeda.

    It’s called a ‘walk-back’.

    You will see a lot more of it in various political spheres this year and next.

    • jerry hamilton

      I don’t think we missed the point, most of us can read.
      What Mattis did was to send a strong message to everyone opposing Assad to get busy with sarin.

    There’s undisputable proof that
    Israel has used three internationally banned weapons in its attacks of the Gaza Strip.
    3 illegal weapons:

    1. Dense Inert Metal Explosive (DIME): spread inert metal atoms that penetrate the human body and are difficult to get out of human tissue
    2. Armour piercing bombs: normally used to strike fortified command centres and weapons stores, these bombs penetrate long distances with high explosive capabilities and have been used to hit Palestinian homes
    3. White phosphorous: This mixes with oxygen to form a transparent wax and causes fires and thick, white smoke, it can burn the flesh until only the bones remain

    Impunity for Israel will not bring peace only justice will. A consistent application of international law must be applied. Until then SHUT THE FUCK UP !!!

    Yes, NGOs such as ISIS and Jabhat Al Nusra, Ahrar Al Sham plus many other non-governmental humanitarian groups, who, when they’re not burning people alive in metal cages, or eating people’s organs, or decapitating heads, are actually performing a great service for Syrian society.

  • John Whitehot

    “if the US finds hard evidence”

    One can only hope that by “hard evidence” they don’t mean something like what they pulled in 2003 about Irak.

    Back then though, the world was different. One cannot forget the trio Putin-Chirac-Schroeder in their vehement protests against US adventurism, with only the brit lackey Blair supporting the invasion of Irak.

    It’s sad to see how the EU has changed in these years. We should also take notice, that France in these days has appeared to have taken again a rather anti-Assad position, after having admitted that he cannot be excluded from the future of Syria.

    It’s a sort of pattern that happened also before the last false flag chemical attack at Khan Sheikoun, which is kind of worrying.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Possibly get Israel to provide some more “evidence” like the cake , but have the Sarin come from the labs in Georgia like the last time in 2013.

      US still hates the idea proposed Russia on JIM which is needed to create a credible and reliable process rather than the clown show they have in the OPCW.

      • John Whitehot

        In any case, Syria has given up its stockpile after the US and Russia talks.

        It’s entirely possible hence to reproduce the “Syrian chemical fingerprint” on Sarin or other chemical weapons by any western /israeli lab that has been supplied samples of those stockpiles, in order to be able to convince the UN and others that Syria resumed production or didn’t give up all its weapons.

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          Yes that’s true as they were originally sold UK sarin to them, and the samples but they are claiming it’s new so some of the elements not be able to be found readily available anymore.

          • John Whitehot

            if they want a chemical substance to appear like it’s been engineered in a Syrian lab instead that in a US or Israel one they can do it.

            I’m not a chemist, but there are 101 chemical elements and I bet that any laboratory depending from neocons / zionists / Cia etc. has access to all of them.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Thing is they all have a signature that reads like a thumb print so not easy. The US and UK had Syrian samples to draw from leaves one to question any reports from them.

          • John Whitehot

            “they all have a signature that reads like a thumb print so not easy”

            That’s what the US says in order to convince others that a certain weapon can only come out of a Syrian laboratory, hence they have a “smoking gun”.

            Actually it’s pretty much BS – human fingerprints aren’t irreproducible – they are just unique in the sense that every single person has them different from all the others.

            In chemistry though, it’s a very different thing, a molecule of Sarin is a molecule of Sarin and nothing else. You could say that “certain contaminants” in “certain proportions” are indicative of a “certain lab”, though it takes a second year chemistry student to be able to reproduce them, especially with the resources available.

            If the CIA orders a batch of Syrian sarin produced in Georgia, you may well be sure that it will be done.

  • The complete obliteration of American military might on the battlefield only can restore hope for the future of human kind.

    Read carefully the message from Scientific American:

    “2017 was grim. In the U.S. and the U.K, tribalism and anti-intellectualism seemed to triumph over facts and reason. The effects have rippled around the globe. Scientific American has fought against such ignoble social and political currents for 172 years by explaining in crisp detail how science changes our understanding of the world and shapes our lives.”

    The statement makes any further discussion on the subject inappropriate. Having being led by the USA humanity is relentlessly pushing toward the precipice of self-destruction.

    MATTIS THREATENS SYRIA WTIH MILITARY ACTION IF US FINDS “EVIDENCE” OF NEW SARIN ATTACK

    If US finds evidence?

    First of all the US hasn’t got a mandate to be in Syria and has been asked to leave by Syrian authorities.

    We know all about the lack of US evidence – In an all too familiar pattern – first they make the accusation followed up by a false flag event.

    The rest of the Western world would do well to develop a political spine that challenges the Neocon narrative while threatening to arrest US war criminals and hold them accountable to international laws.

    Since the US hasn’t ratified international laws and treaties, what does that make of all her vassal states that do not dare upset their masters in Washington – obviously that would have a negative effect on their future corporate careers or other lucrative kick backs such as the talking circuit, book deals and those cushy yet lucrative appointments.

    • dontlietome

      ……………..But the US/Deep state or who-ever-is-in-control-of-that-fucking-country have lots and lots of weapons…………….. more than ANYONE else, and they are itching to use them……………and no, you are never going to able to arrest them, its a ludicrous idea, they will either retaliate by bombing the shit out of you or create a coup in your country. These Psychopaths at the helm there think nothing of trying it on in China or Russia……………….. so any other pisspot country doesn’t stand a chance. Forget wittering on about treaties etc, the best way is undermine Israeli control in the US, slowly but surely destroy the Petrodollar, and undermine the US economy to the point that they can’t trade with anyone.

        One way or another this madness has to end – personally I like to see the war criminals on trial at the ICC.

        Agree about the petrol dollar, and equal rights for Palestinians.

        • dontlietome

          Yes Pal, we are on the same page, it needs a Global response to defeat the Bully and his evil Capo il Capo. But I don’t want a trial, I want them all to hang, publicly, from lamp-posts if need be. We need emotional closure from all the Evil THE JEW has created amongst the true God fearing folks of mankind. THEY are not mankind, they are satans spawn and should be returned to him as ash. With that, Palestine would be free.

            I’d like to see the rest of the world rise up in unison and demand an end to US / Western exceptionalism and warmongering – a boycott of US made products just like the BDS of Israel.

            The recent no vote at the UN might serve as a glimmer of hope, we need more of that.

            Rivera Sun put it so very eloquently

            while there are many noble reasons to advocate that the people use nonviolent struggle, the most strategic one is this: by using violent means, we will have chosen the very type of struggle in which our opponents excel.

            Their superiority is unquestionable at this time.

    People just don’t get the import of these types of lying ravings from senior America admin types. Their words are psy-ops intended to convert enough opinion to allow action. Jewish Google and jewish facebook monitor user response to such propaganda, and if enough of the right type of Americans are convinced by the lies, the US government authorises strikes.

    ‘Truth; and ‘proof’ have NOTHING to do with this process whatsoever. The situation is pure Orwellian- a game of lies, and a number game considering how many are ‘owned’ by the lies.

    We are the TINY minority that has reason to understand just how pathetic the lies are but WE are never the target of these types of psy-ops.. What we think literally counts for nothing.

    Jewish Google has just announced that all RT videos on Youtube will be forced to carry warnings describing the content as Kremlin ‘propaganda’. Of course jewish Google is NOT going to apply the same rule to any significant propaganda outlet of the West- like the BBC. And this is the game in a nut-shell. Same thing as common high school bullying- where certain kids are designated as inherently ‘sub-Human’ by the self-appointed leaders.

    Of course, the methods of the bully were beloved by the original nazis, and thus beloved today by the jews who dominate the mainstream and indy media outlets.

    Jewish Google is more than happy to make every important ‘russian’ video carry a ‘yellow star’- and this is a fact every one of us should observe with disgust.

    So Trump’s disgusting appointees will continue to disseminate their lies and hate, and then mass murder on the back of the lies and hate if enough people buy into the lies and hate.

    • dontlietome

      So if one removed Jewish Google and Jewish Face book and Jew tube also……… one would be in a much better position to make ones mind up. But we know this, we’ve known it since time began…………… the real questions are; Why do we allow this ? And why haven’t we ( the goyanim ………….the followers of the only true God ), created alternatives, put them out there, and told everyone else to do the same ?????????

  • John Mason

    Suggest that Mattis looks into his own stockpile plenty of chemical weapons that should have been destroyed long time ago plus depleted uranium. One can see another false flag being prepared, this time Syria should make sure when attacked that they attack those US bases in Syria, that is where the US attack will originate from.

  • Alder

    Mattis is a deep state type who has been desperately looking for a way to get further involved in Syria to remove Assad and kick Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah out.

    It is said every time Mathis goes to Trump on his hands and knees begging him take action biased off more obviously fake news, Trump replies “Nyet” then calmly walks way without a backwards glance.

    EXCLUSIVE BREAKING NEWS!

    USA has found evidence of use Sarin in Syria! Debris of bomb are still at USA, but soon we will have very dramatic video of them with hundreds of victims filmed by White Helmets! Stay tuned!!!

  • Perhaps next time they look for their evidence they’ll think to put their evidence-hunters in protective clothing better than open sandals?

  • dontlietome

    Look at Mattis, the senile old fool, paid to lie in front of the camera, such a toxic carcass couldn’t even be fed to the fish ! Trump has conned us all, such filth should be sitting in GITMO awaiting the hangmen’s noose, God only knows whose names are in the FISA list, but sure ain’t gonna be the “usual” (oy vey) culprits.

    Countdown to Doomsday: Daniel Ellsberg and the Nuclear Papers

    by PAUL ATWOOD

    Just as the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists has moved the Doomsday Clock closer than it has ever been to our species extinction point reports show that the U.S. warfare state is moving its latest high-tech rendition of tactical nuclear weapons, the B-61 “Gravity Bomb,” to airbases on the island of Guam. Is this an attempt to intimidate North Korea? Or is it a stage in a crackpot plan to destroy NK’s ability to carry out what that state has stated categorically is its defensive strategy against just such an attack?

    Every sane individual I know understands that as long as nuclear weapons exist someday, and that day looms sooner every day, they will be used. The sponsors of the Bulletin, the Union of Concerned Scientists, was established after World War II and the atomic incinerations of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, by some of the very scientists and technicians who had made the bomb possible and who then understood the nature of the monstrous evil they had unleashed. Though Albert Einstein was not one of those scientists his theoretical physics had abetted the basic formula for fission and the Bomb and, believing that Nazi Germany was working on a bomb too, he urged President Franklin Roosevelt to undertake the Manhattan Project. He came sorrowfully to regret this action and spoke regularly about his opposition to war and the nuclear age. “If only I had known,” he declared, “I should have become a watchmaker.”

    The renowned physicist also focused attention on the existential quandary unique to the human species when he said “Mankind invented the atomic bomb but no mouse would ever construct a mousetrap.” Has there ever been another species that actively enabled the instruments of its own extermination? At this stage of human evolution pervasive blind, virulent nationalisms and tribalism predominate, industrial economies depend upon mass production for war that distorts social requirements and creates mass social inequalities and ways of life that force large populations to live in constant insecurity and anxiety. Sophisticated propaganda systems distort reality and delude peoples that the “enemy” is to blame.

    Since the end of World War II the “American Century” has been touted as the construction of a global “liberal order” that enhances the escalation and prosperity of all yet it has become an epoch of endless war, mass death, and technological “advances” that make weapons ever more destructive while escalating the depletion of the planet’s resources, widespread pollution and contamination of land and seas, and the intensification of climate emergencies. As the manufactured crisis with North Korea unfolds the permanent warfare state deliberately incites a new Cold War, betraying the promise made to Mikail Gorbachev as the Soviet Union imploded that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s military might would not move “one inch” closer to former Soviet territories. In both countries the innovation and preparation of nuclear weapons escalates. Recent actions by Washington in Syria portend more violence and suffering and more tensions with Russia. We are at a crossroads. Continue on this path and annihilation impends.

    As Round Two of global war subsided in 1945 American managers confronted the problems of an emergent peace. What was to be done with millions of trained soldiers returning to the states? Many of them had been unemployed or depended on poorly paid jobs at public expense during the long depression that preceded and amplified the probability of war. A return to that dismal state was unthinkable. Much of Big Business and Finance had opposed public spending and borrowing for the sake of social welfare but massive government spending for corporate subsidy was another matter. Government expenditures for armaments had spiked the profits of industrial giants. Indeed, many corporations that now comprise the Fortune 500 owe their very existence to the Second World War and, emphatically, the many wars since. Pondering the post-war the chief of war production, “Electric Charlie Wilson” of the duly enriched General Electric Corporation declared that what the United States needed was a “permanent war economy.”

    He wasn’t alone in such formulations. President Franklin Roosevelt and Vice-President Henry Wallace especially, hoped and believed that a peaceful cooperation with the Soviets could be achieved in the post-war world. The nascent Cold Warriors had other ideas. Roosevelt’s health was rapidly failing and his death was anticipated and with the aid of troglodyte race-baiting southern senators those men who wished the U.S. to be the sole arbiter of the global future assured the replacement of Wallace with Harry Truman who was easily maneuvered into the embryonic warfare state. After all he had declared as a senator before the U.S. entered the war that if the Soviets appeared to be winning the war the U.S. should aid Germany, or vice versa, so that both would eventually destroy themselves and leave the world open to the U.S. agenda.

    We must remember that the employment of the world’s first atomic weapons were not militarily necessary, despite the catechistic dogma that insists so to this day. Japan was finished. Every city except six had been reduced to rubble and these were exempt from strategic bombing because they were on the list for the A-Bombs. Military leadership and some scientists wanted “virgin targets” in order to assess the strength of the bomb’s blast and radiation. Though the U.S. had insisted on “unconditional surrender” from Japan the new cold warriors in Washington who precipitately replaced FDR’s political allies gave Tokyo the one condition it desired; namely, retention of the emperor. Japan was to be re-industrialized with an Asian version of the Marshall Plan for Europe, and its colony, Korea, as well as Vietnam, were to be western outposts on the Asian mainland able to confront Soviet and communist and/or nationalist threats to postwar American plans for the envisioned new geo-political order.

    Soviet forces as ally of the United States, with American sanction, had entered the war against Japan late in August 1945 vengeful for Russian defeat in the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-05 and quickly overran Japanese forces in Manchuria and Korea. Poised to descend into northern Japan itself the Red Army would thus create similar problems for the U.S. as its co-occupation of Germany had posed months earlier.

    The Atomic bombings rapidly brought Japanese surrender before the Soviets could occupy any of the Japanese main islands and were clear and grim notice that the U.S. could and would be as ruthless as any imperial power in history. The Soviets understood the message explicitly. Thus, despite the establishment of the United Nations, any hope of peaceful coexistence was dashed. The die was cast. The Cold War commenced virtually on the day the hot one ended and a few years later the nuclear arms race was on with few and failed attempts at breaking the lunatic mindset. Humanity has lived in the shadow of full-scale nuclear annihilation ever since.

    Daniel Ellsberg, former Cold War true believer and nuclear war planner, incubating his fears and regrets for decades, finally got The Doomsday Machine into print. It is a grim account of the psychopathic “crackpot realism” of “mutual assured destruction” that has held humanity hostage for generations and there is no end in sight. On January 30 Donald Trump reiterated his and the warfare state’s commitment to upgrade and enhance the U.S.’s nuclear arsenal with emphasis on tactical weapons, the very type now being readied potentially for use against North Korea. When years ago Ellsberg saw Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece, Dr. Strangelove: Or How I learned To Stop Worrying and Love he Bomb, he remarked to a colleague that they had just seen a “documentary” not a fictive film, so accurately did the motion picture reflect how a rogue element could launch a nuclear strike and how the American nuclear juggernaut would proceed thereafter.

    Anecdotes have circulated for years as well about technological glitches that have steered us within microns of Armageddon. The very anxieties and rhetoric that have surrounded nuclear crises for decades have also enhanced possibilities for calamitous mishaps. As former Secretary of Defense William Perry puts it “the risk of accidental nuclear war is not hypothetical — accidents have happened in the past, and humans will err again.” Now just in the aftermath of the “accidental” warning of an imminent nuclear missile strike on Hawaii stories circulate about something called the Kanyon, reportedly a Russian super weapon capable of completely irradiating the entirety of both coasts with radioactive cobalt should nuclear war break out between the U.S. and Russia. Is all this malicious and methodical disinformation cooked up by either U.S. or Russian intelligence? Does it signal a return to the worst years of “duck and cover” in order to intimidate the population into acceptance of gargantuan new military budgets? Or are we ultimately setting the preconditions for species suicide?

    Asserting that he sees at best a 4% chance that humanity will survive the 21st century Ellsberg still clings to optimism by arguing for severe reductions in the number of nukes as a positive way to reduce stresses and anxieties but scientists maintain that even a relatively small number of thermonuclear discharges will be enough to induce nuclear winter.

    We abolish nuclear weapons or they are sure to abolish us.

    Well, the White House has produced an amazing amount of morons over the past years but none so idiotic as the mob now that sits in the WH. Can’t they think up some other violation? They should be able to with their experience of violating every rule under the sun. If they had a brain between them it would be the most lonesome thing in the universe.

    …and this is not the only thing.
    Nikki Haley now says they have found evidence that Assad the Butcher and PutlerHitler secretly have developed WMD´s to wipe out all Syrian innocent citizens and children East of Euphrate who refuse to vote for dictatorship and only want freedom and our values.
    …and this is not something we think,…………!

    • Kira Binkley

      Haley’s “plan” is helping Russia. Almost as if she’s doing it intentionally.
      You can see how that type of rhetoric only damages El Stupido (Trump).

  • Hide Behind

    One must take into account count the millions of less sophisticated minds such BZ reaches. This can be a propaganda tool enticing more fanatics to Join US and allies.
    STELL the backs of their combattants, hate is a strong and invigorating military mind. Do other nations leaders Gove allying pig, while their populace may know truth, the leadership
    will hide behind and repeat their masters words sowing doubt in populations not actively engaged in combat.
    US and thereby every Israeli and Euro university. Chemical and biological scientis, is world’s largest producer of chemical and bio warfare materials, and they are one he’ll of a lot more potent than anthrax, flu, sarin and chlorine weaponry.
    US has since end of WWII used humans as guinea pigs from chemical, biological, and nuclear research.
    A nd it has not depended on foreign test subjects but even upon its own populace.

  • peter

    USA with geriatric congress need definitelly prevent nuclear attack from Chine and RF,should shut off american jeopardy of the world !

  • Hide Behind

    When will world wake up to fact that in order to reach top political, economic and especially to succeed in US military it takes a psychopathic mental condition.
    A psychopath will lie cheat steal and not feel any empathy at all towards the chaos they leave in life.
    They make up the future, and even unsuccessful mistakes will be repeated as they admit not to any failure, it was your, my or anyone else fault.
    Others pains, discomfort, poverty do not even enter their need to get what they want, and even the tiniest bit of success only feeds their egos.
    The gathering of not just top leadership all with the same pathology into leadership positions needs support of a minor smattering of like mentally afflicted,; and much like a cancer they infect people’s actions.
    Most pathological liars are borderline killers and mass murderers and psychotic means proclivity to violence towards whatever threat they perceive to their aims.
