UN: Syrian Rebels are Responsible for Using Chemical Weapons

As the U.S. steps up aid to Syrian rebels and Israel has begun preemptively bombing Syria because they claim the Assad regime is using chemical weapons in the conflict, a United Nations investigation has revealed just the opposite.

The rebels are the ones responsible for using sarin gas and other chemical weapons, according to testimony given to medical staff and human rights workers.

Reuters reports:
The United Nations independent commission of inquiry on Syria has not yet seen evidence of government forces having used chemical weapons, which are banned under international law, said commission member Carla Del Ponte.
"Our investigators have been in neighboring countries interviewing victims, doctors and field hospitals and, according to their report of last week which I have seen, there are strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof of the use of sarin gas, from the way the victims were treated," Del Ponte said in an interview with Swiss-Italian television.
"This was use on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities," she added, speaking in Italian.
The Obama Administration is continually expressing outrage at the Syrian government over what they call "varying degrees of confidence" that Assad used chemical weapons in the conflict. The Administration made these charges with no viable evidence or reliable intelligence.

While the West tries to imply that the Assad regime is guilty of war crimes based on rumor, Israel's unprovoked strike against Syria is a clear international crime in direct violation of international law. Shall we add the use of chemical weapons by the allied Syrian rebels to the list of war crimes?

And what US/UN supporter of the rebels gave them the chemical weapons hoping they would use them in such a fashion as to make it look like the Syrian government was to blame? Didn't work and now you are all guilty of supporting/supplying weapons of mass destruction. Let's draw up some criminal charges against all those involved...shall we...

The world jas long known that the besy and cleanest form of genocide, both physical and cultural while keeping pnes hands and own culture pure and unstained, has been to give primatives the newest hi tech weaponry and then entice or excite them into hacking the hell out of each other; That is what we see in central asia, sowthwestern asia Especilly the middle east and Africa indonesia and Philipines.
we use pharmas to kill our primatives off in Euro centri worlds its a lot more civilized and we get a bit of work out ot the ones with dreams and perhaps :y ambitions as to thnk these. Can ever become the equals of their rulers.
WHILE THE UNWASHED AND UNCOUTH THINK MAKING BIG BUCKS SOMEHOW LETTS THEM ENTER THE REALMS OF THE WORLDS ARISTOCRACY THEY ARE AND ALWAYS WILL BE NO MORE THAN A PIG AFTER A BATH WITH DEODORANT AND JEWELRY ON. JUST FANCY PIGS.
LET THE WORLD HACK EACH OTHER UP AND FOR AMERICANS WHO HAVE HARD TIMEBPIGS HAVE EYE LIDS THAT'S. KEEP THEM LOKING DOWN. TAKE A GANDER AT HOW EASY uS /EUROS HAVE JUST ABOUT GOT PHILIPINES ALL OF ASIA WITH JAPAN ECONOMICS HI TECH AND A MILLITANCY READY TO TEAR THE KIMOMOS AND SUMO CLOTHES OFF AND banzi the pacific.

Now this is embarrassing! Brian Williams and Mrs. Greespan, back to you. Let's see if ABCNBCCBSFOXPBS cover this as part of the rationale for Israel's attack. How did the "rebels" get chemical weapons, anyway?

There is a book written by the ex chief of Iraqs airforce, He details how Sadam got most of the WMD out of Iraq. It seems that after the earthquake in Syria, the Red Cresent, sent aid to the victims, the UN trucks went through Iraq, after a time the lazy Un inspectors quit inspecting the aid trucks, and Sadam was able to ship a lot of his WMDs to Syria. So.....Syria has poison gas, and probably biologicals also, and some of the Nuc,s The libtards are the ones who lied! after we occupied Iraq we blew up a bunker of WMDs, unfortunatly some of our troops were downwind, and not informed or protected, and the UN was called in to take out the remains of his nuke projects (the stuff that wasn't there?) Now the WMDs are comming to light, and the libtards are still covering up with lies....Bush did it!!!! Bush lied.......?

__Very good article__Everybody knew that Syrian army had chemicals, also knew they would never use them fearing NATO-Israel revenge.___But as the non-Syrian mercenary rebel death squads trained in Turkey, financed by SaudiQatar at $3,000. dollar a month (a little fortune for the poor African fighters) seized a few loyal army installations-bases including chemical storage facilities, it was easy to use it on a few citizens to accuse the loyal to Assad army for the crime. ___ As Israel used white phosfor several times against the Palestinians and Lebanese without any complain from U.S or U.N.
