Thesis/Subtitle: IF the US had incontrovertible evidence
Concomitant: THEN the tomahawks would fly
Corollary: so they obviously do not
Syrian president Bashar al-Assad's sarin gas claim implausible

«The verdict: There is significant evidence and intelligence linking the Assad regime to the attack. Intelligence agencies and NGOs have found no evidence that any group other than the Assad government possesses chemical weapons on a scale deployed on August 21 or the types of rockets involved.»
Comment 1: In the 1st instance, this is *not* within the AusBC's competency - as a PFBC, their job is to report facts, not report opinions as fact, and 'investigating' an off-shore incident in an environment of restricted to no access is particularly fraught.
Comment 2: In the 2nd instance, it is *not* the AusBC's business to weigh in on a controversy in Aus, let alone one in some foreign land, and the fact that the tomahawks *did not fly* proves that the US itself has insufficient (= no, or no verifiable) evidence - and that should be the end of it, also given that the world has moved on, to a post 'Kerry-Lavrov' plan situation.
Comment 3: In the 3rd instance, AusBC's interference can only be to propagandise, since the facts do not support its purported conclusion, that a foreign head of state's assertion is 'implausible.'
Comment 4: Given the gravity of the situation, AusBC's interference makes them a participant at the apologist level (providing moral support to a terrorist organisation = US rogue regime), and IF the tomahawks eventually fly, THEN the level of participation escalates to accessory level (providing material support) – of a wicked criminal attack.
Comment 5: This behaviour by the AusBC, being *not* in the interest of truth + justice = peace, therefore *not* in the interests of the Aus electorate, makes them frauds and tax-$ thieves. Sack the bloody lot! Into gaol via the courts for all proven participants in this outrage!
Argument: As to supposed 'evidence' (*all* circumstantial, US admits *no* 'smoking gun'); quoting partisan sources is not merely pointless, it's outright wrong. We know that the US is fomenting (NED&ilk) and subverting (CIA&ilk) Syria, training aggressive invading forces and conduiting both arms and those forces = mercenaries, many of them Al-Qaeda, many from Libya, the site of the previous US-sponsored outrage = yet another supreme international crime. All of the sources cited by the AusBC are either direct US sources, or so-called NGOs or even UN agencies, all of which are (presumably) amenable to US influence = coercion, if not outright corrupt. This is what they mean when they deploy the expression 'the West,' it means the US(Z) rogue-regimes, plus the sycophant-cloud of coerced, coopted cowards plus sundry other (voluntary?) traitors. The AusBC makes itself a cloud-member; a risible, sycophantic 'player,' and as I said, assumes part guilt, by the accessory/apologist mechanism.
Fazit: I object to my tax-$ being so misspent. My personal proof of AusBC perfidy can be dated to the late 60s, when they obscured the 'true facts of the matter' by biased reporting of the then current Israeli outrage against the mostly A/M ME, namely the 1967 war of choice by Israel against its neighbours. Israel is an illegitimate entity and all those who support it make themselves guilty by the same accessory/apologist mechanism. Propagandising the electorate is already a crime against democracy, propagandising on behalf of a foreign power (US, Zs) and/or a filthy 5th column (Zs) makes the AusBC traitors, to boot.
