State TV says 'chemical agents' discovered in Damascus as Assad regime continues to deny Wednesday's alleged attack
The Syrian government has said it has discovered chemical agents in tunnels in Damascus after the killing of hundreds of Syrians in a suspected chemical weapons attack on Wednesday.
Syrian state television said government soldiers found chemical agents in rebel tunnels in the Damascus suburb of Jobar on Saturday and some of the troops were suffocating.
"Army heroes are entering the tunnels of the terrorists and saw chemical agents," state television quoted a source as saying. "In some cases, soldiers are suffocating while entering Jobar."
"Ambulances came to rescue the people who were suffocating in Jobar," the broadcaster said, adding that an army unit was preparing to storm the suburb where rebels fighting to oust the president, Bashar al-Assad, are based.

It's like watching Hitler and Stalin go at, both are bad guys and it's a pity they both can't loose, I sure hope we don't Intervene like that situation! >:(
Its ironic that this adminiatration is choosing the alleged use of WMDs as the preferred reason to go to war on behalf of its terrorist friends.
I’m still searching news reports to try and find out just how the chemical attack was conducted.
Pumped out of a truck using flexible hoses?
I would believe Assad before I would the opposing terrorists. And even if Assad did use chemical weapons yay for him.
The only people to cheer for in this Syrian mess are the Christians . . . and they’re screwed.
You need PICTURES Assad. Put an Al-Qaeda flag on it.
The trickle of information coming from the French, the Israelis through Debka and UK as I am reading it points the finger at Assad as being fully responsible for what happened on Wednesday.
The ball is in Obama’s court and he will have the chance to play it any way he chooses or maybe not even play it at all.
Help the terrorists beat Assad or let Assad exterminate his enemies ala Hitler.
“Any way you look at it you lose”-Simon and Garfunkel ‘Mrs Robinson’.
You have to spread thus stuff pretty low at ground level for it to work on this kind of scale. Tunnels would be ideal.
Why would Assad use chemical weapons and risk the inevitable international reaction?
Because he’s nuts and he must feel confident about Iran and Russia backing him up.
The French WANT it to be assad. Debka? Really?
This is the story as put out today by DEBKAfile from Israel.
Russia would NOT back this.
Before our stupid government starts throwing missiles around they’d better determine who actually used those Chemical weapons.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Obama’s boys used those weapons to get us involved in another of his big A$$ mistakes.
We need to stay out of there.
If what they say is true the cruise missiles should be flying???
But if its all hokum its hokum designed to make Obama look bad for not taking action. Psych warfare against Israel’s enemy Obama???
Israel has a dog in this situation and would prefer Obama do the shooting for them since their shooting would trigger an even more negative and retaliatory response.
The one thing for sure is that Asaad is a paranoid nutty dictator in a bunker right now.
