Skip to comments.Video Claims Proof Assad Unleashed Chemical Weapons
Posted on 12/09/2012 3:07:21 PM PST by Eleutheria5
Fears of the worst possible scenario in Syria have been confirmed in a video released by rebels that shows victims of chemical warfare.
WARNING: The video should not be shown to children without parental agreement.
An almost sure sign that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has unleashed his chemical weapons for use against rebels is his regimes claim on Saturday that rebels are preparing to use chemicals in their uprising. Assad systematically has accused opposition forces, which he labels as foreign terrorists, of carrying out attacks and murders for which his own loyalists are responsible.
British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Saturday there was evidence the Damascus government could actually employ chemical weapons stocks in the conflict which a rights group says has killed at least 42,000 people in nearly 21 months.
The Obama administration is bound to be tested this week on its treat to intervene militarily if signs continue to show that chemical weapons are already being used in Syria.
If President Barack Obama thought that his warning would be enough to stop Assad, he apparently is mistaken. Assad knows that if he does not defeat the opposition, his fate is death, and probably in a way no more humane than his brutal suppression of the uprising if not in a way similar to that of his old friend, Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi.
Military intervention would have far-reaching repercussions especially, in Iran, a last holdout in Assads collapsing support.

If I were to believe any of this at all, i"d be saying the Hildabeast and Obamugabe are bald faced liars, and so are all the other Democrats ~
What they'll need to do is go in there on the ground and actually get a big whiff of it before I"ll believe any of it.
Obama just got his bluff called. I predict he does nothing but talk. “The world must unite, etc.” You know the drill.
YEP! Obama is dumber than a Lemming! I was going to say a ROCK, but they are too intelligent!
What do You want to bet that these are the Russian Chemical Weapons hastily removed from IRAQ and stored, hidden and stockpiled in the weeks before we invaded IRAQ!
Look more like victims of burns than chemical weapons. Certainly wasn’t sarin or they’d be dead.
Syria is the one bright spot in the news.
They can always claim that Syria brewed its own. Really not hard to do. Insecticide is very similar to nerve gas. Even has the same antidote: atropine. Mix amonia and chlorine bleach together and — voila! WMD! Get a mess of castor beans, and you can make deadly poisons with little more equipment than is found in a kid’s chemistry set.
Susan Rice to blame WWIII on video for 2 months.
Zero’s sternly worded letter will be sent very soon...
Yes, very soon.
Does it show Mohammed eating his wife’s rug to rid himself of demons?
Did you notice that ‘they’ are not claiming ....... makes this all suspicious ~ they know.
Those look like burns. I guess they could be chemical burns; but they do not appear to be the poisonous chemical inhalants most folks associate with chemical weapons.
Has anyone specifically identified the “chemicals” involved?
This puts Pres. Obama between a rock and a hard place. On the one hand he has to call the people he supports liars, or he has to honor his promise that the use of chemical weapons would not be tolerated and have consequences.
But then again there is the Obama way, vote present.
HAHAHAhahaaa lol. Amazing. Freaking amazing, how this CIA/State op is going. Last week the propaganda was “if he uses chemicals, we will intervene”.
The rebels heard the message loud and clear, “we need you to give us proof so we can intervene”.
And bada bing* this week the rebels have “proof”.
I’m waiting on stories that Syrian soldiers are catching Belgian babies on their bayonets next.
Mustard has causes serious skin burns. It’s particularly dangerous if inhaled as it burns lung tissue causing the victim to drown. Nerve agent fatalities usually show corpses in unusual positions due to death while seizing.
Good for Assad. Gas those Al Qaeda bastards and their supporters.
“Released by the rebels”...a video made right after they bombed their own people with chemical weapons they stole from the government facility they overran a couple of weeks ago.
This is all about trying to give the US a reason for intervening on the side of the Islamists in Syria.
The factory captured by AQ manufactured chlorine gas, but it is believed that the facility was a storage space for other chemical weapons that had been sent to Syria by Saddam and have been in storage since then.
So AQ might have a lot of seriously bad stuff now.
perhaps it was mustard gas.
LOL you saw it too!
