Maybe that's because my views were shaped by PYD leader Salih Muslim 
calling the sarin gas attack in East Ghouta that cost the lives of more 
than a thousand people a "false flag". Any leader capable of making such 
a terrible statement is creating an atmosphere where it is entirely 
plausible that his followers would hold pictures of the killer of those 
people aloft.
