Posted on 09/07/2012 10:33:54 AM PDT by edpc
Western spy agencies suspect Syrias government has several hundred tons of chemical weapons and precursor components scattered among as many as 20 sites throughout the country, the Washington Post reported on Thursday.
This, the paper reported, heightens anxieties about the ability to secure the arsenals in the event of a complete breakdown of authority in the war-torn nation, US and Middle Eastern officials say.

Obviously an important issue, but you have to wonder what we're overlooking in the region and elsewhere with the assets concentrated here.
And I would ask the question, “How did Syria get these WMDs?” Oops, Bush’s fault because he found them in Iraq.
That’s exactly what I was going to point out...
I guess they have not been watching the news lately.
I might be wrong, but didn’t the Dear Leader say something about a line in the sand?
You must not have gotten the memo—the libs told us there were no WMDs.
By having a gigantic indigenous industrial program manufacturing chemical weapons for the last 40 years, which has nothing to do with Iraq.
What a completely intentionally misleading headline. “Dispersal” in chemical weapon parlence means to actually use them, not to warehouse them in various locations. Screw you YNet.
And why did we not know about it then? If it was gigantic we could have seen it from the spy satellites.
We've known about it essentially the whole time, and the Syrian chemical weapons program and stockpile has been widely discussed in the media and in academia for at least 20 years.
You'd have to have been living under a rock not to have been aware of it.
Oops, Bushs fault because he found them in Iraq.
I don’t know where stupid Rove was when all this was going down, but it made Republicans into the villianous national punching bag and the anti-war radicals “heros” and it made Muslim aggresssors into victims in a lot of people’s minds. It led to the election of Muslim commie who has totally wrecked this country.
I hope I don’t sound bitter. :)
