What does Nigel know that

What does Nigel know that makes him think that Assad probably carried out these attacks?

He doesn't.

He is just following the official line and watching the polls. He is after all a politician. When it comes to foreign policy Farage has always been a traditional Empire loyalist. He calls himself a libertarian but he is not a libertarian like Ron Paul in his philosophy.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Wrong

He has never called himself a libertarian, and he has always been anti war. Get your facts straight please.

The UK Independence Party

"The UK Independence Party (UKIP, Ukip), is a Eurosceptic right- wing populist political party in the United Kingdom, founded in 1993. The party describes itself in its constitution as a "democratic, libertarian party" and, as of July 2013, has a membership of 30,000." (Wikipedia)

I have also frequently heard Nigel describe himself as a libertarian so on that score it is you who are mistaken.

As to his attitude towards the Syrian situation, this other interview with the BBC gives a better picture of Nigel's views after he likely had some time to think it over:

This is more like the Nigel Farage we have come to know and love over the past few years and is motivated I think by his re-assessment of the public mood, a questioning of the official story that he would instinctively believe and the "common sense" image of the UKIP that he wishes to project.

However he does not see the world from the same perspective of most on the DP. e.g. He is quite comfortable with the banking and monetary system and believes a rejigging of the tax system should be enough to get the UK out of the trough it is in.

As to my remark about his traditional Empire loyalist attitude towards military action, that was indeed an hyperbole since Britain is no longer an Empire. It is nevertheless how I understand the general tone of the defence policy of the UKIP which is found here: http://www.ukip.org/issues-2/policy-pages/defence

Your reading of this policy statement may differ from mine but it is, I believe, in favour of projecting power on a global scale which has always been the traditional British position.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Here you go...

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy
