    Rebels preparing to smuggle Ghaddafi’s chemical weapons into Syria via Turk

    The Free Syrian Army (FSA) has now acquired chemical weapons from Libya, Reuter’s Khaled Oweis reports from Amman. It was previously thought that Ghaddafi’s weapons had been dismantled, however usage by Libyan rebels has proven otherwise. His stockpile is thought to contain mustard gas and sarin, two dangerous agents that can induce death or permanently disabilities along large areas.

    This dangerous development occurs as public opinion seems to be turning against the rebels, due to attacks on Sunni tribal elders in Aleppo, a city that has been the stronghold of support for the government. The rebels earlier promised to turn the city into the "grave of the tribes” according to one rebel leader,

    The veracity of such claims are unclear, but if true they require serious attention. Turkey should be pressured into confiscating the weapons immediately and halting any attempt to get them into Syria. Chemical weapon use should not be condoned, especially considered that Assad has them as well and will likely retaliate in kind. The rebels should be compensated with conventional armaments, but it should be made clear the NBC weapons are off limits.

    Side note: I originally saw the title as "Rebels preparing to smuggle Gandalf's...."

    On a more serious note: If this is true, it doesn't bode well.

    Actually they are not trying to smuggle them into Syria it's actually Mordor.

    If true (or even credible) it will be interesting to gauge the worlds response.

    There's no room for them there, silly! Syria's already full of Saddam's invisible WMD isn't it?

    I'm doubting it at this point. If they actually were, the govment probably wouldn't risk it. If it's a rebel group in Libya they must have been very well armed and ninjas because where these weapons are stored in Libya are pretty heavily defended and we would have heard about it.
