Syrian Rebels Claim to Take Over Chemical Weapons

The Supreme Military Council of the Syrian rebels released on a statement on Tuesday which said that the rebel forces took control of an army missile base in Damascus, in which ten ready-to-launch missiles were found. Some of the missiles, according to the statement, were converted to carry non-conventional warheads.

“During the successful operation, the operatives of the Free Syrian Army found a large number of rockets ready for launching, with enormous destructive capability, and they were very surprised to find missiles that were converted to carry non-conventional warheads and which can be equipped with chemical or biological warheads,” said the statement which was translated by Arab affairs expert Dalit Halevi.

The Supreme Military Council of the rebels went on to claim that it had confirmed the report by examining photographic documentation of the scene.

The Council warned that these facts indicate that the Assad regime is getting ready to bomb cities in Syria using these missiles, and the possibility that he will use missiles with unconventional warheads cannot be ruled out.

Thanks Free ThinkerNY.

And now, the Russians, Iranians, and Alawites can start the national cleansing.

The rebels could make a huge number of friends, and get a heck of a lot of weaponry in return, if they can possibly deliver those weapons outside the country. Hopefully to the French or a delegation from NATO and Russia.

Losing really bad? Hillary Clinton and Obama have totally destabilized the middle east. Their support for the “democracy movement” is putting in place a jihadi/sharia based violent governments where they are persecuting Christians, crucifying and beheading...and you love it? You are deluded.

Obama was behind all of this with the Muslim Brotherhood. It’s a total disaster.

Will you be visiting the pyramids anytime soon?

I am still refuting the NO WMD lie.

The NO WMD line was an absurdity tailored for the minds of 15-21 year olds. Which happens to the mental capacity level for most leftist. The UN spent years destroying tons of WMD in Iraq. So there were tons of WMD in Iraq. The question was, why was there WMD that Saddam admitted having, that the UN had not documented as being destroyed. The main question is, was Saddam lying or not ? Which is immaterial to the fact that we had to assume he was not lying.

Obama/Hillary apparently assumed that intelligent analysts from all over the world were lying when they claimed Assad had the most advanced and largest active chemical WMD munitions in the world (most of the world has stopped developing the weapons). So Obama/Hillary proceeded to destabilize the Assad regime assuming he did not have the WMD and that he would not dare use them even if he did have them. That was one of the worse foreign policy moves ever made in US history.

This report claims that missiles capable of carrying WMD warheads were found. It does not claim that any of the actual warheads were installed. Some of these chemical warheads need to be activated before being installed for use anyway. Then the rebels claim this is proof that Assad will bomb cities. False. Assad has plenty of artillery shells, chemical spraying helicopters and airplane delivered munitions that he can use on his own cities. The missiles are for attacking cities and bases in nearby countries. For example Israel, Jordan and Turkey.

Possible that the report was botched and they meant to say artillery shells or bombs, but the rebel claim that this is proof Assad is preparing to fire Chemical WMD on his own cities is false either way considering the evidence. At any rate, it would be prudent to assume he will use them when backed into a corner. And you have backed him into a corner. The main question is has he used them yet ? So far, they have not been needed. But you can bet you bottom dollar he has standing orders to fire off everything if he is killed, which is why having uncontrollable Islamic terrorists amongst your force structure is absolutely idiotic.

Could be that they found some of the stockpiles of weapons the Israelis took satellite pictures of, being caravaned out of Iraq, and moved to Syria, right before the Iraqi war. Wonder how old the weapons are.

The equipment to manufacture the chemical and biological warhead components safely, was probably what the Syrians could have used the most. That could have been utilized to expand their capacity to manufacture. And some analysts now claim they possess the largest active chemical WMD inventory on the planet. They also could have gotten cultures for biological WMD warhead development.

The entire Middle East however is already loaded with Chemical and Biological WMD. Egypt, Syria, Iran and the Sauds all have plenty of the stuff. In fact this is one of the last regions on the planet where Chemical and Biological WMD are actively stockpiled for use. And since WWI, this region is where the vast majority of Chemical WMD have actually been deployed in combat.

Oh, and since the Muslim Brotherhood (Obama's homies), have taken complete control in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood also now controls Chemical WMD (Egypt).
