Syria's darkest hour: Hundreds of children's bodies piled high after nerve gas attack near Damascus leaves up to 1,300 dead
Activists claim 1,300 killed in government rocket strike on residential area If true, it would represent the worst known use of chemical weapons since Saddam Hussein gassed thousands of Kurds in the town of Halabja in 1988 Chemical warheads hit suburbs of Ain Tarma, Zamalka and Jobar They hit just before dawn as families lay sleeping A UN team is in Syria to probe chemical weapons use by President Assad Many countries have called for an immediate investigation French Foreign Minister has called the attack an 'unprecedented atrocity' William Hague said hopes attack will 'wake up some' who support Assad Claims come as refugees flood into Iraqi Kurdistan

I’m rooting for Assad. The lead-bad criminal in the bunch.
I am skeptical. Supposedly Assad was winning and taking it to the Rebels. So now he gasses civilians and kills over athousand? Why?
He gains little, but has much to lose.
I do not discount th rebels did this to gather sympathy for their cause.
Why doesn’t every one see this.
Judeo/Christian - Thou shall not bear false witness.
An unambiguous sin.
Islam - Hey, do,say whatever it takes.
Were the people killed Sunni or Shia?
Were the people killed Sunni or Shia?
The other suspicious thing is the timing- on the very day UN weapons inspectors show up. This is as real as Hillary/Theresa/Beau Biden head trauma.
I don’t believe Assad would do this. He knows it would trigger the end for him.
Satan has blinded America. We now see what he wants us to see. There is no turning back for us as a nation. However, as individuals there is still the chance.
Were they even muslim? The details for the next few days will be worthless. A bunch of liars all around will position their version of events. Only after a while will anything resembling the truth come out.
Our news media can’t even cover a case in Sanford, FL accurately with over a year lead time. Do you or anyone else expect them to actually figure this out withing hours?
Maybe the UN set it up? One article mentioned homemade rockets. Maybe they had help from down south?
I imagine this story has already been released for distribution by the white house. Remember, they had the list of countries to invade written down the day after 911 Obama is following thru. This is a bush family legacy project with Iran next on the list. After the ruiness ash heap formerly known as Damascus has cooled...
I agree with you. I am rooting for both sides to lose, but it seems highly unlikely that Assad would want something like this. Why? His forces have had the upper-hand recently and he knows he loses if Western powers get more involved. The folks calling the shot for AQ (the side we are supporting - crazy) don’t care about Syrians so I wouldn’t put this past them.
Syria is a mess. We should have stayed out of the Arab Spring, but Obama had an ego moment when he thought the seas would stop rising and peons in the Middle East would faint at his greatness. Go back and read the transcript of Candidate Obama’s big Middle East speech when you need a laugh. We are more hated now than we were before.
Yep, there was no real reason for the stronger side that has had the upper hand to do something like this.
The leader of Syria has a good chance of being the anti christ, Especially since his name shows up in prophessy.
Can u expand upon that? Assad? Thanks
Assad is just a poor guy who inherited a mess. The anti-Christ would be the leader that everyone loves and sees as the solution to the problems in the middle east, as far as I understand prophecy.
I bet this all ties into the breaking story that Obama’s brother is in muslim brotherhood and got special IRS treatment by the same woman who went after tea party. So Obama brother sets up charity by order of Obama to funnel weapons to brotherhood, includin morsi, for shipment to Syria. But deal goes bad, morsi orders executions, that’s why military took overafter finding out.
FR has a reputation for knowledgeable info. So we wait until someone with reliable information comments here. Everyone else is just guessing or making jokes.
