Posted on 02/24/2012 1:10:15 PM PST by Las Vegas Ron
The State Department has begun coordinating with Syria's neighbors to prepare for the handling of President Bashar al-Assad's extensive WMD assets if and when his regime collapses, The Cable has learned.
This week, the State Department sent a diplomatic demarche to Syria's neighbors Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and Saudi Arabia, warning them about the possibility of Syria's WMDs crossing their borders and offering U.S. government help in dealing with the problem, three Obama administration officials confirmed to The Cable. For concerned parties both inside and outside the U.S. government, the demarche signifies that the United States is increasingly developing plans to deal with the dangers of a post-Assad Syria -- while simultaneously highlighting the lack of planning for how to directly bring about Assad's downfall.

It us really looking more and more like all out war in the ME this year, probably by Summer.
Thank God we have a capable POTUS!
I suspect they are already doing conferencing-calls with the LSM heads to get their stories straight for when the Syria WMDs become a story.
No doubt the toppling of Assad will be postponed until they feel confident their strategy is fixed.
Heh, that was my first thought too....after I took my eyes off of her fugly mug!
That’s sure what the gas prices are trying to tell us... and the killing of an American journalist.
Ref.: (in part): Mining Annual Review(1985):469. A phosphate mine producing about 1 million tons/year. Started 1982.
420 km West of Baghdad on the border with Syria. Also the main uranium mine of Iraq, associated with the Al-Qaim plant.

Second Message to Nizar Nayuf Dear Nizar. I have sent you another chart of the positions which tells where the weapons which were sent from Iraq into Syria, are hidden. Because the preceding chart that I sent you earlier is not clear. Until now, the authorities in Syria did not worry of what was being published by the Dutch television news about this subject. New information: The weapons were evacuated by the means of ambulances. Mohammed Mansoura also took part in the operation. There are other serious, detailed pieces of information concerning the money of Saddam being moved into Syria and into Lebanon and those who took part in moving it Syrians and Lebanese.Also there are more details about the assassination of the General Moustapha Tajer which took place last summer.
Take care of yourself.
Damascus, January 7, 2004.
Hellry keeps getting hit with an ugly stick on a regular basis.
As I read your post, I took out my checkbook to help pay, in some small way, for your therapy.
The last line caused me to smile, so I tore up the check. I’m glad it wasn’t needed.
I asked an ANTI-Busher about this, and in answer got nothing but an indignant dirty look.
Thank for the info CB, good stuff!
Link after link. Some now broken. Some refer to FR: http://newsbusters.org/node/8668
You are exactly right and Iraqi general George Sada says the same thing. Sada was Hussein’s air force general during the first Gulf War.
I’ve read his book, “Sadam’s Secrets”, and heard him speak after a church service.
It is fascinating reading. He says Hussein trusted him because he was s Christian and wouldn’t BS him. Hussein’s kitchen staff was also Christian to protect him from subversives who would try to poison him.
The Syrian transfer is all here:
I wonder if we’re indeed at the time indicated in those passages?
The pieces are all in place so it sure looks and feels like it ;(
What will be real fun is watching the Anti-Booooshies try to explain why Syria had all of these Iraqi WMDs.
“RM: Do you have any other information, such as testimony or hard evidence that indicates Iraq possessed WMD?
DG: Congressmen Curt Weldon and Pete Hoekstra know about the sites but will not speak about it because I stopped them from conducting the WMD searches for their own goals. The CIA knows but has their own political agendas. The DIA agents are very good and know WMD are at the sites I identified. Other U.S. intelligence officers have told me that they also are aware, but once they talked with me they received calls from Congressman Weldons office to keep quiet. My proof is my past credibility and my intelligence reports that are at AFOSI HQ at Andrews AFB in Maryland.”
those countries know far more about the Iraq/Syrian WMD’s weaponry than Obama/Clinton. What the administration knows probably came from Israel and several ME countries.
