Skip to comments.Hundreds reported killed in chemical attack near Damascus
Posted on 08/21/2013 1:42:22 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Syrian activists close to the countrys opposition claimed hundreds of people were killed in a poison gas attack by regime forces outside Damascus Wednesday.
There were several differing reports on a death toll. Activists told Al-Arabiya that 635 people were killed in the attack in Eastern Ghouta, while Reuters reported that 213 died.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights put the toll at dozens, while the Local Coordination Committees said hundreds were killed.

Yeah, sure the regime did this. I don’t believe that for a second.
If we cannot trust our new allies al Quada, who can we trust.
We’ve got too many people in power that want us involved over there. I don’t trust them.
Wasn’t Syria the country where Sadam Hussein ditched his WMD in the run up to the war in Iraq? The left whined for years that there was never any WMD and that Bush lied?
I won’t hold my breath waiting for the MSM to admit they got it wrong.
There were several differing reports on a death toll.
If it's Islamic, there will necessarily be "differing reports," "varying accounts," "alternate versions," et cetera ad infinitum: followers of the prohpet are shameless congenital liarsnot to mention cold-blooded rapists, torturers, and murderers.
WMD in Syria have emerged from their hiding place
UN’s Bank E-Moon: Dis is terrible, I condemn it.
Europe: Aghast, terrible, it must stop.
Pres. Obama: We are approaching a red line, I will be golfing this weekend so don't bother me.
Putin: Need more gas canisters comrades?
Arab nations: This must stop, pass the Hookah.
Turkey: Israel is behind this.
Palestinians: Israel is occupying Damascus.
I wouldn’t put it past the opposition to stage an atrocity and blame the other side. I wouldn’t put it past either side, actually.
Do not believe the assad regime did this. The only times gas has been used against anyone, it’s been the ‘freedom fighters’ and they are losing ground right now. Just like last time.
I care... /S
< golf clap>
I don't generally go for the Revelations doctrine, but I respect it enough to watch it.
There's a section of Revelations the clearly states that one of the signposts of Armageddon is that Damascus will be made into a place that is unlivable and wouldn't want to be lived in by anybody.
That's been my next tripwire that I've been watching for for about 2 years to happen in determining the truth/falsity of Biblical Prophecy.
This may not be unlivable, but just the fact that Damascus has been hit with something that COULD make it unlivable scares the water outta me. The Bible could have mentioned any city in the world or the Middle East but it very specifically said Damascus.
A ruinous heap, habitation of every foul creature, never to be home to men again. It will be laid low, not one stone left upon another, from out of the dust of destruction they will mumble.
Its like a self cleaning oven over there.
Isn’t this just in time for the special “investigation” by international “observors” to determine if the military in power is using chemicals againstall “those peaceful protestors”?
You tagline tells me that we are kindred spirits.
I have been watching prophetic events for more than twenty years.
Here is a link to the most recent prophecy timeline spreadsheet I have posted. It is a few months old.
I will not be posting an update to this spreadsheet until September 4 or shortly thereafter. However, if you contact me with an email address, I will send you the version that I am working on now.
The Muslims extremists are well know for killing off their own or others if they think there is gain in doing so.
...yeah, that about sums it up.
...sums up the apathy.
As I always say:
Period of Middle East “War” = Israel defending itself against Arab war of annihilation.
Period of Middle East “Peace” = Arab wars annihilating other Arabs.
My first thought, too.
Certainly not Assad. The Syrian Army is already kicking the Al-CIA-duh terrorists butts despite the massive amounts of arms, money, and fresh fighters supplied by US/NATO and its allies. A chemical weapons attack with UN monitors on the ground is an open invitation for US/NATO to become directly involved militarily to save its Al-CIA-duh mercenary army. Of course this is a false flag attack to gin up support among the braindead sucker moms and Joe Sixpacks for yet another Mideast war.
Obama has already given al Qaeda/”rebels” MANPADS,
weapons, training, $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$, SAMs,
and probably these WMD for the “false flag”-op planned
at the White Hut by Obama and his Moslem Brotherhood.
If Damascus goes, can Hizbollah’s suburb in souther Beirut go too?
Oh, oh, this could push Obama to draw another red line, make a facial grimace and issue an “...and I mean it”! statement...developing...
WHAT HAPPENED TO HANS BLIX?
“The socialists burned down the Reichshtag...!”
Nothing more to be said.
A Lebanese Christian had this to say about Syria. It should be noted that Lebanon has suffered extremely because of the PLO, Syria, Hamas, Iran and its proxy Hezbollah
“The bastards have been killing each other for hundreds of years. I hope they all kill each other.”
Note: Neither side in Syria is our friend. However, the rebels are more dangerous to us than Assad.
I don’t believe for a second that Assad forces did this..especially while the UN team is there looking into WMD use in Syria. Either AQ forces did it to gain sympathy or some Assad shelling hit a WMD stockpile in rebel hands and caused the release.
Obama has the US on the wrong side in every conflict in ME right now. The only thread that remains constant throughout the fabric of his ME policy are the Muslim Brotherhood and the Islamists. He is backing them in every conflict.
Was thinking along the line that it was a random hit of material secreted away. They may have targeted a known ammo stockpile without knowing the type of ammo IN the stockpile
That is my guess as well. Big question..did they come from Saddam’s old weapons or from Benghazi?
Or both. Bengauzi may have been an attempt to do something with Sad-ham’s products. To admit that would mean W was right and the liberals were wrong
They’re all animals anyway, let them lose their souls..
Hundreds reported killed in chemical attack near Damascus
"WMD in Syria have emerged from their hiding place."
Article, then # 3 , # 5.
Thanks, hoosiermama. [WMD from Iraq went to Syria; Bush told us.]
But... but... There Were No WMD’s...
That’s all we were told...
Wasn’t Jamie Gorelick the person who said there were no WMD’s?
I posted this on a similar thread:
“First communique from the MB on the breaking-up of the Rabaa and Nahda sit-ins:
2,000 killed and 100,000 injured! Where are these numbers today?
I dont believe a word these bastards say! They shoot their own and civilians in the back. It wasnt enough, therefore, they used gas AND/OR lied about it.
Those animals will never admit losing a battle or a war, its always somebody elses playing unfair! The West is so much in the tank that they are trying to save the MB. The international MBs goose is cooked no matter what the West does.
Does it remind you of something?
Our administrations its Bushs fault!”
Yelp! a litany of lies!
Was thinking more on the line of 1 or 0.
Ah, yes, Jamie Gore-lick...
Built the wall between agencies that prevented the intel sharing that could have prevented 9-11;
Stonewalled every probe against her boss and BFF, Janet Reno;
Lied on the 9-11 Commission;
Jamie Gore-lick. Loyal Leftist.
Back when Colon Powell was on our side, he was outraged over lines of trucks hauling who knows what out to Syria. Even showed video. But many of the msm denied it just days after.
