US Repeats Syrian Chemical Weapons "Warnings"

US repeats same tired, desperate accusations that the Syrian army is preparing to use "chemical weapons."

Once again, the US has issued a warning against Syria deploying "chemical weapons" citing "intelligence reports that the Damascus government is preparing such munitions for possible use." No evidence was provided, nor any reasonable explanation as to why the Syrian government would deploy such weapons when, after over 2 years, the majority of the Syrian people still stand behind the government, while terrorist forces flooding over Syria's borders have been faced with constant tactical and strategic defeat.

Photograph: David Sperry/AP" As increasing evidence reveals Libyan fighters and weapons are pouring into Syria, it seems the West is preparing to preempt the inevitability that Libya's chemical arsenal has also found its way into the besieged nation.

Despite attempts to portray Damascus and Aleppo as on the inevitable edge of collapse, now for a full 6 months, both cities are still firmly in the hands of government troops, with only symbolic terror attacks murdering scores of civilians at a time and temporary advances made on isolated bases before promptly being abandoned by NATO-backed terrorists - a pattern not unlike that facing Western forces in NATO-occupied Afghanistan.

The accusations were printed in the Washington Post article, "Obama warns Syria amid rising concern over chemical weapons," but despite the insinuations, includes the disclaimer (emphasis added), "Syria is thought to have several hundred surface-to-surface ballistic missiles capable of carrying chemical warheads."

Other nations "thought to have" weapons of mass destruction included Iraq, which in hindsight, after a 10 year war and occupation, following years of crippling sanctions leaving millions dead, turned out not to in fact have such weapons.

It is unlikely that the Syrian government would use such weapons, thus giving the West the excuse it would need to directly intervene militarily, a scenario the West has been attempting to sell for the last 2 years, and particularly so following NATO's military operations in Libya throughout 2011.

Conversely, NATO's proxy forces operating in Syria possess both the means and motivation to carry out chemical attacks, therefore blaming Syria's government and granting the West the impetus needed to intervene more directly.

NATO-backed Terrorists have the Means. 

Libya's arsenal had fallen into the hands of sectarian extremists with NATO assistance last year in the culmination of efforts to overthrow the North African nation. Since then, Libya's militants led by commanders ofAl Qaeda's Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) have armed sectarian extremists across the Arab World, fromas far West as Mali, to as far East as Syria.

In addition to small arms, heavier weapons are also making their way through this extensive network. The Washington Post in their article, "Libyan missiles on the loose," reported:
Two former CIA counterterrorism officers told me last week that technicians recently refurbished 800 of these man-portable air-defense systems (known as MANPADS) — some for an African jihadist group called Boko Haram that is often seen as an ally of al-Qaeda — for possible use against commercial jets flying into Niger, Chad and perhaps Nigeria.
While undoubtedly these weapons are also headed to Niger, Chad, and perhaps Nigeria, they are veritably headed to Syria. Libyan LIFG terrorists are confirmed to be flooding into Syria from Libya. In November 2011, the Telegraph in their article, "Leading Libyan Islamist met Free Syrian Army opposition group," would report:
Abdulhakim Belhadj, head of the Tripoli Military Council and the former leader of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, 'met with Free Syrian Army leaders in Istanbul and on the border with Turkey,' said a military official working with Mr Belhadj. 'Mustafa Abdul Jalil (the interim Libyan president) sent him there.'
Another Telegraph article, "Libya’s new rulers offer weapons to Syrian rebels," would admit that
Syrian rebels held secret talks with Libya's new authorities on Friday, aiming to secure weapons and money for their insurgency against President Bashar al-Assad's regime, The Daily Telegraph has learned. 
At the meeting, which was held in Istanbul and included Turkish officials, the Syrians requested "assistance" from the Libyan representatives and were offered arms, and potentially volunteers. 
'There is something being planned to send weapons and even Libyan fighters to Syria,' said a Libyan source, speaking on condition of anonymity. 'There is a military intervention on the way. Within a few weeks you will see.'
Later that month, some 600 Libyan terrorists would be reported to have entered Syria to begin combat operations and have been flooding into the country ever since.

Harati is now commanding a Libyan brigade operating inside of Syria attempting to destroy the Syrian government and subjugate the Syrian population. Traditionally, this is known as "foreign invasion." 

Washington Post's reported "loose missiles" in Libya are now turning up on the battlefield in Syria. While outfits like the Guardian, in their article "Arms and the Manpads: Syrian rebels get anti-aircraft missiles," are reporting the missiles as being deployed across Syria, they have attempted to downplay any connection to Libya's looted arsenal and the Al Qaeda terrorists that have imported them. In contrast, Times has published open admissions from terrorists themselves admitting they are receiving heavy weapons including surface-to-air missiles from Libya.

In Time's article, "Libya’s Fighters Export Their Revolution to Syria," it is reported:
Some Syrians are more frank about the assistance the Libyans are providing. 'They have heavier weapons than we do,' notes Firas Tamim, who has traveled in rebel-controlled areas to keep tabs on foreign fighters. 'They brought these weapons to Syria, and they are being used on the front lines.' Among the arms Tamim has seen are Russian-made surface-to-air missiles, known as the SAM 7. 
Libyan fighters largely brush off questions about weapon transfers, but in December they claimed they were doing just that. 'We are in the process of collecting arms in Libya,' a Libyan fighter in Syria told the French daily Le Figaro. 'Once this is done, we will have to find a way to bring them here.'

Clearly NATO intervention in Libya has left a vast, devastating arsenal in the hands of sectarian extremists, led by US State Department, United Nations, and the UK Home Office (page 5, .pdf)-listed terrorist organization LIFG, that is now exporting these weapons and militants to NATO's other front in Syria. It is confirmed that both Libyan terrorists and weapons are crossing the Turkish-Syrian border, with NATO assistance, and it is now clear that heavy weapons, including anti-aircraft weapons have crossed the border too.

The Guardian reported in their November 2011 article, "Libyan chemical weapons stockpiles intact, say inspectors," that:
Libya's stockpiles of mustard gas and chemicals used to make weapons are intact and were not stolen during the uprising that toppled Muammar Gaddafi, weapons inspectors have said.
But also reported that:
The abandonment or disappearance of some Gaddafi-era weapons has prompted concerns that such firepower could erode regional security if it falls into the hands of Islamist militants or rebels active in north Africa. Some fear they could be used by Gaddafi loyalists to spread instability in Libya. 
Last month Human Rights Watch urged Libya's ruling national transitional council to take action over large numbers of heavy weapons, including surface-to-air missiles, it said were lying unguarded more than two months after Gaddafi was overthrown. 
On Wednesday the UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, said the UN would send experts to Libya to help ensure nuclear material and chemical weapons did not fall into the wrong hands.
And while inspectors claim that Libya's chemical weapons are in the "government's" hands and not "extremists'," it is clear by the Libyan government's own admission, that they themselves are involved in sending fighters and weapons into Syria.

It stands to reason that NATO-backed sectarian-extremists, directly affiliated with Al Qaeda and with the support of Libya's government, will also acquire and bring chemical and biological weapons with them - with their use in Syria almost as inevitable as the West's duplicity and spin that will be used to then blame it on the Syrian government.

This reminds me of the ol "if you don't stop beating your wife" trick. It worked in Iraq and Libya.

This is no different than Israel playing the part of the "Victim" by always referring to the "Holocaust" and claiming people are "Anti-Semites" if they fail to agree with the "We are God's Chosen People" scenario. The US is playing the same game by making the unsubstantiated claim that all these countries have "Weapons of Mass Destruction" but the truth is that America has become the terrorists by invading all these peaceful nations in order to steal their natural resources and reduce their populations. Once the people of America come to this realization it will be far too late.

Well we all know what proceeds the weapons of mass destruction propaganda. Direct military intervention, because those gosh darn mercs just ain't getting the job down. Actually, all the NATO member nations' military forces are filled with mercs. Better trained and more well equipped mercs, yes. But still mercs nonetheless.

Dear Friend.

I am always wonder on some dirty,upset minded, bipolar,confused and narrowMinded American commentators/blogers that they comment on pakistan as failed state. First pakistan is not failed state if yes then USA has made it,
US is involved in Pakistan's corruptions, money loundering, terrorism(taliban), infilterations-(balochistan) and USA using pakistani politician and Army as game changer and as a pappet and as ball.

If US force to our Pakistani leaders/regime/army sincerely to make correct every mis-management and law & order, then Pakistan become ezzily a civilized state in globally.

Pakistan's Problems main responsible is USA.

I hate Pakistani leaders as well as i hate America because these both countries are thriving and driving terrorists like Taliban and Al-quiada, if these two countries are sincere to crush those terrorists,then all devils can be eliminated very eazzily.

Hope May God make correct both countries' Leaders sincere to do so.

Many thankx.

"Traditionally, this is known as "foreign invasion."

Obama isn't held accountable for Libya, instead he starts another invasion in Syria. He tells more lies than Bush did, yet the anti-war left is silent. War in the ME is incompatible with economic recovery. Achieving this war is the ultimate corporate-financial gangster coup d'etat. We will never be the same. It's worth being against, but the new Democratic Party's base doesn't support traditional positions, instead it supports and defends only Obama. They can't criticize him, no more than they can criticize his party

Two parties for Money, none for the people. I guess Money needs this war, so war it will be. It will make every other competing interest moot or subject to a tyrant's decree. Gird your loins, folks. The fact that this is Obama's and Washington's priority, not economic reform, tells you what is coming.
