Recent news of a chemical weapons attack in Syria smacks of desperation. The question comes down to who is most desperate right now, the Assad regime or the Muslim Brotherhood rebels? Consider that since June, Assads forces have been winning. According to a CBS News report from last month, victories for the rebels had become increasingly rare and that the Muslim Brotherhood-backed opposition fighters were sustaining some of their heaviest losses near Damascus.
The New York Times echoed this sentiment, even saying that before gaining the upper hand, concerns were that Assad would use chemical weapons; he did not.
In fact, even before Assads forces gained the momentum, a UN official reportedly found evidence of rebels using chemical weapons but no evidence Assads regime did
Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior U.N. diplomat said Monday.
Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof, that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.
But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons

We should encourage Assad to waste his land, from North to South and East to West with Sarin.
We should encourage the “Rebels” to waste the land, from North to South and East to West with Sarin.
That way, no intervention, no more civil war...
John French Kerry and virtually ALL news reports are saying the chemicals couldn’t have been delivered the WAY they were delivered if the rebels had done it - that they lack the capability. Therefore, open and shut that ASSAD did it.
I don’t trust Kerry, Obama, Hagel or the news media.
Don’t know what the full truth is, yet, but know who I don’t trust.
So now there is proof that the undocumented pRes_ _ent
has given al Qaeda MANPADs, Fast&Furious weapons,
SAMs, open borders, legal support of the DO"J",
coverups to allow the Boston Atrocity, and now WMD.
What is next??? nukes?
No country in the world creates better disinformation than the Soviet U, oops, I mean Russia.
They are the undisputed masters in leaking false information.
They are pros, nobody comes close to their level of professional lying and speading falshoods. My hat off to them this time.
None of this will get much coverage in the US media. We are being manipulated again, just like the run up to the attack on Serbia.
I can tell you who I do not trust.
Those that lie 100% of the time.
The Sunni Muslim Brotherhood, as usual, provides more evil spin. It bears false witness while committing murder in order to push an agenda.
Lying, bearing false witness, blood libel, and murder.
Yeah, that smells like the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood.
Assad did, indeed, begin turning the tide in June.
Obama's Credibility Gap (only 9 percent of Americans favor intervention in Syria) becomes a real problem in the real world as it's become more clear over time how the desire of the Saudi Sunnis to use the U.S. as a mercenary arm, and the willingness of Obama to obey is being slowly brought to light.
In preliminary trials for Morsi and his Capos it just came out that our administration personally bribed them, as high as $850,000. That news is being buried by the compliant, clueless news media. The War Powers Act has so far been ignored by mouthpieces like Graham and McCain.
The whole thing stinks. Is there an American interest in this theater? Are our war powers now completely in the hands of the Saudi royals?
Once again, as in Benghazi, honest peole have to ask why we are doing anything to aid al-Qaida?
Remember his Fast and Furious gun ( and 400 ? missiles than can bring down a commercial airliner ) running from Benghazi to the Sunni Muslim [cough] Syrian rebels ?
HANDS OFF SYRIA!!!!
Once again, Ted Cruz makes more sense that the horrible “human rightsers” obama, Kerry, and McCain:
“Human rightsers”—with their “humanitarian interventions”, “anointing” rebel groups as “the legitimate government of” whatever country— have NEVER done anything good for over 35 years!!!!
And ever since the mid-1990s, they have specialized in backing Christian-killers, jihadist, and criminal thugs like Izetbegovic, the KLA, Morsi, and the Libyan and Syrian “rebels”.
Flush the “human rightsers” and obamabots down the toilet!!!!
Now he has to do something or he looks like a weakling and a coward. Meanwhile, Putin is licking his chops for a chance to punch Obama right in the nose, after poking him in eye over the NSA debacle.
A half-hearted, ala bj, cruise missile attack on a facility in the middle of nowhere will be a joke, and recognized as such by every party. It will only confirm his weakness.
A genuine attack has NO backing in the US and could bring a retaliation from Russia using the Syrians as frontmen. At that point the fat's in the fire.
Stupid stuff. As Mesta told you guys elsewhere, what has the US, Britain and France desperate is gold - which they had hoped to grab from Gaddaffy, and which they now think may have made its way to Syria. It turned out not to be with the tuaregs.
Everyone is now broke. France tried to get their gold back, and got nothing. The Sauds were importing mountains of gold, and it mostly turned out to be tungsten. The world treasuries have been looted down to the last candywrapper, and the usual suspects are desperate to find some coin. *Any* coin.
I’ll say this. If America has facilitated this in any way in order to justify attacking Syria to install the damn MB, then America deserves what is going to result from that, whatever it may be.
If this line has been crossed by us, then there is no going back.
Also, I do not consider Obama voters, worshipers,or disciples to be American, nor do I associate anything pertaining to Obama as American. The two are, in my opinion, two different entities. Never the twain shall meet.
But they are.
Americans elected this man. Twice. Americans elected the house and senate who are refusing to hold him accountable and as far as I can see are complicit in everything that he does.
Yes, there are people that did not vote for this government, but it was elected nonetheless.
And if it is responsible for the unleashing of WMDs in order to justify its schemes, then God help us.
He's going to look that way no matter what. A coward acting so as not to be called a coward, using stand-off weaponry.
"Not in my name."
I thought the Chinese and Indians bought up the world’s supply during the last 5 years...
