(Reuters) - Syria's opposition accused President Bashar al-Assad's forces of gassing many hundreds of people - by one report as many as 1,300 - on Wednesday in what would, if confirmed, be the world's worst chemical weapons attack in decades.

I’m gonna say this now. I don’t think Jesus waits much longer.
I would wager this current world doesn’t last much longer than 2015-ish.
Beware the accuse the accuser scenario. Islam features it as a favorite in their playbook.
Oh I totally agree.
It is probably in fact the fault of the Syrian rebels blaming Assad for it.
My thoughts when I saw this story was.. wow.. we’re nearing the VERY end of this world.
Maybe the “rebels” feel that the attention has moved to the problems to their east. Sounds like an attempt to get the spotlight back.
Yep this is real possible..
Signs? Mark? Antichrist? Plagues? Famines? Asteroids? World - wide earthquakes? 1/3rd green burnt up? water turned to blood? 2 witnesses?
I’m just not understanding your connection.
Self serving utterings from these people carry the same weight as an Obama assertion.
Saddam’s missing WMD’s?
Actually, I think I want more proof than what Reuters says or reports. I saw a picture this morning of supposedly a group of children, dead from poison gas, all laid out in a makeshift morgue. The big sticking point I have with it is the relative peacefulness of the children whose faces could clearly be seen. It did not look to me as if they’d been killed by a gas attack; it looked like they were sleeping. IOW, they did not look like they were dead.
The numbers the jihadis are throwing out keep going up. Wonder what it will be by the end of today’s news cycle.
Chlorine again, and once again their own?
Alas, brave new Babylon.
al qaeda opened some of hussein’s canisters and killed people just to blame Assad... this murderous play is disgusting. Assad is no choir boy but animals need a strong zoo keeper to keep them from eating one another.
Wow, 1300 dead muslims...figured they could do better. Now excuse me while I go get my tissue and cook some bacon while I contemplate why I should care.
As in Egypt,,, it’s the Mo-Bros sending out false stories ,,,
Amen to that... I couldn't agree more. Democracy for baboons doesn't end well. They need a strong, powerful overlord to rule them.
the mooselimes have been known to FAKE photo ops.
the most recent I know to be a fake was a video in which the hand of an alleged corpse laying on a stretcher was moved during the short segment....revealing UTTERLY NO WOUND under his blood soaked t shirt.
This photo was entirely suspicious. Faces and color were normal, no fluids, paleness, no sunken eyes, no nothing...FAKED in my opinion.
The Christian-killing Syrian “rebels” used that strategy before!!!!
Of course, obama, Hillary, and McCain have backed the “rebels” (i.e., Al Qaeda) from the beginning!!!!
We're not sure if the Syrian rebels did it.
If the rebels did it, we're not sure what faction did it.
We're not sure if one side did it and blamed it on the other.
We're not sure that it even happened at all.
And if it did, we're not sure what the heck it matters to the USA anyway.
LET'S GO TO WAR!
(Bill Kristol / McCain / Graham logic)
1) Wire services are reporting this with no confirmation
2) No government forces in the area, only rebels
3) to kill that many people in such a wide area, a whole lot of chemicals must have been used.
4) A government to use chemicals around its own capital - with UN inspectors in the area? (the wind could have blown that right back at you
5) Syria was already re-taking towns and beating the rebels back. No need for Bad PR.
6) Need something to get Egypt off the Al Jazerra News Cycle
Conclusion: I don’t believe this was an attack by the Syria Government, nor do I believe the rebels could posses this much ordinance for such a wide area.
Just my $.02
That child looks very dead. its normal for the eyes of the dead to be partly open
It is not uncommon for a dead person to have one or both eyes open. If I were to have to guess which, if any, of the three were dead, I might think the paler one. It is hard to tell with this one’s shirt still off.
But the other two? They still have their color, not paler at all, not lifeless. They look like they are sleeping, and their stomachs and chests don’t look like all the air’s gone out of them. There are no adverse reactions (bodily fluids, mucous, foaming you might expect from gassing. They look like they are sleeping
Not the other two.
Also - beware of photos and even video produced by Muslims.
If those ‘killed’ by this attack are all rosy-cheeked children without a mark on them and wrapped in snowy-white sheets then its worth drilling down a little further.
Now we have proof positive that Saddam’s WMDs were stored in Syria, just as was reported (and debunked) back in the day.
Yep... they always have and always will.
That will have some scratching their heads, isn't nerve gas a WMD? Saddam Hussein? Syria? Where was this casual mention of Iraqi WMD warfare by the media during the Bush administration, I used to look for it and didn't see much of it.
they are freshly scrubbed
their hair is clean
there are no abrasions... visible
Do mooselims LIE??
remember the woman in Iraq who kept showing up in one photograph after another whenever the iraqis wanted to show us a poor woman whoe house was just leveled???
the video......although not nearly as clear clean and high Resolution...is even WORSE in terms of obvious fakery.
the videographer rushing from one alleged corpse to another....at a pace that seems so FORCED that its a wonder he didnt trip over one of them
it has all the marks of NAIVE fraud!
wheres BAGHDAD BOB? hes all thats missing in this current FRAUD
... if confirmed. lol
i.e., it didn’t happen.
Syria could have gotten its own WMD stock from their shia brethren in Iran who have lots of experience being gassed and gassing others
remember Mr Green Helmet from Lebanon?
Showed up looking very series, loading up “bodies” at every alleged Israeli attack site
For anyone who ever wondered what happened to Saddam Hussein’s WMDs.
I would have to agree... maranatha!! come Lord Jesus!!
For a post-tribber, your question is relevant, but for a pre-tribber, no other prophecy or any particular event has to occur before the catching up of the saints to meet the Lord in the air, and forever be with the Lord. Count me a pre-tribber... best be ready, for no man knows the day or the hour...
Im too years away form 70!
the open eye... but a small part of the overall picture
were these kids all gassed as they dressed after thier morning Shower ?
no dirt ..no other evidence of their having DIED
did they simply lay down to die...or perhaps they struggled and FELL...being bruised ..getting abrasions in the process?
And don’t forget his girlfriend, Bomb Magnet Woman.
ahahaha they had QUITE a cast of characters
I only wish I had better cataloged the various parody banners I made containing the likenesses of these stunning bozos!
If they have oil to sell, fine. If not, fine. We're nuts to be involved with these people.
Doesn’t matter if the photos were fake or real, we need to sit this one out.
I agree there are no “good guys” here that we should be supporting
If this attack killed civilians and if it was NOT launched by Assad but really launched by the al Qaeda offshoot we the USA are inexplicably supporting in the name of...... what? “opposition”? “pro democracy”?
If the opposition is killing civilians and claiming it was done by Assad
and WE are logistically supporting that opposition
then WE are killing Syrian civilians
WTH did our Congress vote for this involvement and what is their oversight....?
