    Syria has very little oil.. about 400 thousand barrels per day.. It hardly meets their needs.

    Were you going to try and state the UN didn't send Carla Del Ponte inside Syria to investigate? Trying to go after a source that is referenced and validated by all the MS media, kinda seems redundant now.....doesn't it?

    Syrian chemical programme – National executive summary of declassified
    intelligence - Paris, 3 September 2013

    Our intelligence confirms that the regime feared a wider attack from the opposition on Damascus at that moment. Our assessment is that the regime was trying by this attack to loosen the grip and to secure sites strategic to control of the capital. For example, the area of Moadamiyé is located close to the Mezzeh military airfield, which houses the barracks of the Air Force intelligence. Anyhow it is clear, by examining the targets of the attack, than only the regime itself could have targeted positions that were so strategic for the opposition. Finally, we consider that the Syrian opposition does not have the capacity to lead an operation of that size with chemical agents. No group belonging to the Syrian opposition has, at this stage, the capacity to stock and use these agents, and even more in proportions comparable to what was used on the night of August, 21 in Damascus. These groups have neither the experience, nor the know-how to implement them, particularly through vectors as those that were used during the August 21 attack.

    Considering the sophistication of the delivery system employed for the attack, rebel forces would not have been able to carry it out so successfully other than in the form of random acts of terrorism similar to the Sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway. The Syrian Army’s 4th Armoured Division, controlled by Assad's younger brother Maher al-Assad, is most likely to be responsible for the chemical weapons attack and the Syrian opposition would not have attacked its own strategic positions.

    Thank you for the supporting evidence.

    I am astounded by some of the conspiratorial, willful ignorance of the people on this forum that insist to themselves, despite all logic and evidence, that the rebels caused the attack.

    This is supposed to be the picture of one missile. Photo number 3, starting from left and counting to right, shows the missile impacted in dirt and photo number 6 is supposed to be the same missile, but they are different. The damage and out of round configuration would show in photo number 3 if they were the same missile. Something doesn't pass the smell test.
