Anchored opposite the Syrian shore is the USS Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group with 2,500 Marines. Facing it is the Russian Black Sea Fleet’s naval task force which too has hundreds of marines on its decks.

Israel Defense Forces’ Northern Command as saying: “The coming hours and days are extremely critical for Syria. The situation on our northern front could blow up any moment.” They did not elaborate.

Wait, what? Are these the WMDs Sadam didn’t have anymore?

Bush, Powell and Condi lied to us...right?

Pick the stick you want to beat us with, obama/lib/naive losers.

You all don’t know which way is up in this evil world because you have no moral compass to guide your confused souls.

Children who think they know something, but are sorely wrong.

Russia Today, which is about as reliable as Debka, claimed U.S. Patriot batteries going to Turkey.

So.......

“The convoys were ferrying self-propelled cannons for firing shells loaded with poisonous sarin gas.”

I never realized that gas shells were fired from special cannons. All the normal arty is 155mm, but the gas shells are all special 160mm shells that only work in special chemical cannons!/ How stupid. Tubes are tubes. If SP155 is driving down the road, it’s no more dedicated to gas than it is to any other round in their inventory.

And why should a single Marine fight there? Even if they shoot gas at each other. If Assad wins, we have Assad. If the rebels win, we get another wahabbi extremist like Morsi. Who freakin’ cares?
And actually, Assad is nominally better for the local christians.

The only risk the USA faces there at this point is that WE WILL RUN OUT OF POPCORN. Or that one side will run out of ammo.

WHO CARES...? Let them machine-gun one another all day and night.

Our job is to drink beer, hump and STAY THE HELL OUT OF IT.

“He is also taking advantage of the heavy winds, rain and cloud over this part of the eastern Mediterranean”

Dang! Assad foiled us again. With clouds we are helpless to do anything. And night time throws us off too. LOL This article is senseless.
Special self propelled artillery that is only useful for sarin filled gas shells, and they are moving under cloud cover so we can’t see them!
This article is so obviously another breathless effort to hurry us into the fight.

Well heck, this is just Debka. Who the heck can believe them. /sarc

Would make a great opening to a movie about WWIII. Wonder if anyone has copyrighted this yet ?

If this is true, can you just imagine how screwed up Obama would have made the world, if he had actually lost the election ? We may have actually lucked out.

Assad has really got to worry, now. Obama has threatened to stomp his feet and hold his breath until he turns blue, of Assad actually uses them.
