Video Claims Proof Assad Unleashed Chemical Weapons
Arutz Sheva ^ | 9/12/12 | Tzvi ben Gedalyahu

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.

Video

An almost sure sign that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has unleashed his chemical weapons for use against rebels is his regime’s 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 Assad’s collapsing support.

If it expands to a war with Iran, this might be a good thing. But I doubt Iran is that stupid. Is Obama dumb enough to repeat Libya?

The Obamistas have a problem here ~ they spent the last decade arguing that Saddam had no WMD, and that he certainly didn't give WMD to Syria, yet, here they are telling us Syria has WMD.

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.

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.

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.

“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.

This is the Obama/Islamist false flag in the making. With Obama setting the stage with his so called “red line,” al Quida has been provided the trigger to stage chemical use by Assad to get the U.N. to intervene so Obama can lead from behind. This is the al Quida setup. Recall how the Palestinians used self-created victims as a PR ploy against the Israelis?

The video that supposedly provoked the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi. Innocence of Moslems. It’s a trailer of a crude film with plenty of really insulting stuff about Mohammed, except it’s all based on their own books.

The Obamistas have a problem here ~ they spent the last decade arguing that Saddam had no WMD, and that he certainly didn't give WMD to Syria, yet, here they are telling us Syria has WMD.

2004 study by the US, under Bush, determined that Iraq had destroyed its WMD stockpiles in 1991.

Syria is one of six states that have not signed and eight that have not ratified the Chemical Weapons Convention. It is capable, and has produced, its own chemical weapons. It didn't need any from Iraq.

In 2001 the CIA reported that: Syria sought CW-related precursors and expertise from foreign sources during the reporting period. Damascus already has a stockpile of the nerve agent sarin, and it would appear that Syria is trying to develop more toxic and persistent nerve agents.

There's a thread on this site claiming the whole chemical situation there is cover for false flag actions. I say let them wipe each other out, the ass-clown in charge did nothing for the freedom movement in Iran but supported the “Arab spring” which has given the world the newest Wahhabi threats, screw them.

libya had this enormous underground bunker sort of atom bomb development center ~ a really huge thing.

So, let's say they figured out how to make nuclear land mines ~ and that's what we were shipping to Syria.

I don’t trust “rebel” films. They are trying to draw us into the sink hole that is Syria and they are nothing but liars. No more US involvement in funding and empowering the Muslim Brotherhood (nation building) surrounding Israel.

We are going to have to go in and fight against them all when they join forces against Israel and US. Don’t make them stronger. If anything, do bomb runs on chem weapon operations and that is all. Nuke the place.

Totally agree. Bombs away. Except, they don’t exist. It’s all bullshit about sarin gas and WMD. The only thing that is true is that Obama is arming Jihadi Islamists from Al Queda to try to take Asshat out in Syria and install Islamist rule like in Egypt. Libya etc.
