I smell a “false flag” operation staged by the rebel New Syrian Army. It makes no sense for Assad to use chemical weapons.
Same suspicion. UN chemical weapons inspectors have just arrived in Syria, so why would Assad stage a large scale weapons attack at the same time? More likely, Obama's terrorist allies have killed some of their own for the cameras.
If the al qaeda backed opposition had chemical weapons stockpiles that big, they wouldn’t use them to make a play for international attention.
Did you realize that “ todays apparent chemical massacre outside Damascus falls a year to the day from Obama issuing his empty red line threat.”
Interesting comments at the link ... such as “ if Zelins theory that Assad did this as a middle finger to Obama and the world is correct, the presence of inspectors only makes the defiance sweeter for him, no? Note that the inspectors arent free to investigate the new attack either their movements are restricted to the locations of previous alleged chemical attacks so its not like theyre a threat to find the smoking gun of what just happened.”
Sounds plausible. It was said that the regime was winning, and this took place in the outskirts of Damascus. I didn’t think that the rebels were that close to the capital.
