    Re: Poison gas missile strike in Syria

    So some folks are turning this into a massive partisanship pissing match.

    That's great, please continue your idiocy.

    On the actual story, an extremely dangerous situation.

    I honestly don't know which side to believe, as much as I hate Assad and hope he gets Gaddafi'd I also don't trust these rebels either.

    Who's to say they didn't get a hold of a chemical weapon and use it, blaming the authorities in order to get the US or EU countries to intervene like they did in Libya.

    A real ****ty situation.

    Think we've gotta wait for more info.

    My hope is we know exactly where Bashad is and if he has used WMD there is a plan in place for his immediate execution by way of a bomb or missile.

    Having seen the video of his execution, I'm pretty sure Saddam wasn't the one laughing - but he certainly played many for fools when he was in charge.

    No other News orginization has confirmed the story yet.

    If this story is just a rumor or faked, then someone is desperately trying to get us involved.

    However if the story is true, then Assad really is hellbent on staying in power. Let us pray that it is just a rumour or at the very least that neither turkey or any other NATO member retaliates.

    This may be the first time I ever agreed with you.

    There's probably people who could, but it's unlikely that they'll be very forthcoming with it. They're likely to be on one side or the other, and I don't think either side would want to disclose what they have.

    Perhaps when the war is over...but not now.

    Assuming that it's not possible in the middle of a civil war, what should Obama do?
    Or it could be just as likely that some outside source delivered it to incriminate both sides. Im not sure who Syria's enemies are though.
    Why would they be stupid enough to do that to themselves when it would be such an easy excuse for big dogs to invade their airspace?

    Russia, which has military and intel on the ground, says it was the rebels (presuming it happened). I think they've the capability to determine such and I do not think they would lie for Assad on something like this.

    The 'experts' (see my CBS link above) say it was not chem.

    Those two things line up, as Russia presumably does not have such insider info to rebel actions and was simply saying "nope, not Assad".

    So many of the rebels there are defectors. If any of them had access to the weapons....

    I'm not sure that they're al-Qaeda, but realistically we know that the Assad regime supported Hamas. Assuming that some of the rebels have terrorist connections, there is no good side for us to be on right now. Jumping in without taking sides is a fools errand.

    That makes a bit of sense if they were watching the Syrian Government closely.
