Skip to comments.Report: Assad moves weapons underground

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has begun to move his arsenal of advanced weapons underground in preparation for a possible strike on the country by the United States, Israels Channel 1o reported on Wednesday.
Since learning of U.S. President Obamas desire to attack Syria, Assad s forces have begun to move the weapons, including possibly chemical warheads, into underground bunkers. The process was accelerated when Damascus realized that the U.S. strike would not be a surprise and in fact would be delayed by a Congressional vote, Channel 10 said.
The underground facilities are similar to those built by Iran near the city of Qom in order to protect its nuclear facilities against attacks. This similarity is not coincidental. Most of the underground facilities in Syria were built by Iran and North Korea.

Who would think Assad would move his weapons underground? That certainly hasn’t been done before.
yes I agree. My preference is to do nothing and let the muslims fight it out and thin the herd
His air strikes will hit nothing of importance while possibly exposing our ships to retaliatory strikes by Russian made anti-ship missiles.
Wait a second..Isn’t this what muslims are supposed to do before striking? Lots and lots of “fair warning” followed by seeking “blessings” (usually from an imam; in this case congress....groan) I thought I read an article on here a handful of years back about a certain set of criteria needs met before muslims can start whacking away at one and other if they want to stay square with the moon god..
Assad has at least 72 of these...probably use as a swarm against surface ships.
The Arabs have been learning, bit by bit, since Desert Storm.
They know that they can bleed us into leaving.
Dah. What do you expect DA?
After the US paves the way for a Wahhabi Sunni dominated Syria, life for Shi’ites, Sufis and Druze will be just as difficult as it will be for Christians and Alawites.
As rotten as the Assad regime has been — and it has been very, very bad — it didn’t much care to antagonize religious minorities. To Wahhabi Sunnis, the guys who Kerry says are paying the tab for this adventure, Christians are infidels and the other groups are apostates as bad or even worse than infidels.
0bama's basic rule of thumb is "Do the opposite of what should be done in every situation".
What’s your beef with Israel?
Our cruise missiles have nearly 10X the range of that weapon. They’ll never get close enough to the Syrian coast for it to be used. In a strike, any aircraft from Syria would be intercepted immediately.
In the next 50 years or less, ICBM tech and MIRV will be in the possession of the mohammedans, and the USA will cease to exist, exactly because of the degenerates in DC sticking their nose where it doesn't belong and failing to westernize the mooselimbs like we did the Japs .
Time to start thinking about bugging out for a safe haven for kids and Progeny's sake, the Barbarians are at the gate, and are only emboldened by the faggotization of our military.
This is what happens when Universal Suffrage is imposed despite the warnings of the Founders, who by the way were exponentially smarter than 99% of the degenerate political class in DC.
Can't say they didn't warn us.
Our so called commander in chief is an idiot. I’m dumbfounded. I haven’t seen anything this incompetent since Carter. Thank God we voted Carter out after 4 years. Yet the idiots have given Obama 8 years to ruin our country.
When you have someone as incompetent as Obama, you just don’t want him making any military decisions. FUBO.
Assad is a brutal son of bitch. But you gotta be a brutal son of a bitch to govern an Arab country. European style Democracy isn’t going to work in that neighborhood. Egypt gave it a shot and ended up electing the Big
Obama is not this stupid.
Clearly he has OTHER reasons for striking if he in fact follows through.
I seriously doubt it’s to save face.
Don’t forget he’s just a puppet.
“But you gotta be a brutal son of a bitch to govern an Arab country.”
The Middle East is tribal, and Westerners have a tough time understanding it, the familial ties, etc...
They don’t realize this a DEMOCRAT President attacking them, do they?
The U.S. Media will cover up, or minimize, or not even mention, any civilian casualties when Obama attacks, just like Libya, and everywhere else since Obama was elected.
Not real smart, in my opinion.
Well...after all HE didn’t draw the red line. /s
Exactly correct .. seems helping Muslims is tops on Obama’s list of TO DO’s.
