If they're busy using it on each other, they aren't using it on us!

Bloomberg headline, citing Al-Arabiya.

If true, that would be one of the stupidest military moves of all time. USD/JPY down about 10 pips on the headline.

Some are pointing out that Al-Arabiya is Saudi owned and that the Saudis are no friends of Assad

Al-Arabiya is a Saudi TV network. You can disregard this story until there’s concrete evidence.

A different new attack?? I’d find it doubtful too, not only per the news but your news source, Al-Arybia might be partial to anti-Assad forces.

Considering the first several gas attacks have been the “rebels”, what’s a few more thrown in to stir the pot?
Especially since the people aren’t buying it.

Perhaps a philosophical question here....but if the rebels were gassing folks in general around the capital (troops and civilians)....shouldn’t we be helping the Syrian gov’t then?

It seems to me....the gas guys...whoever they are....are the bad guys. Or is this not the scripted answer to the whole problem?

Man, it seems like that Libya mess was so much easier to understand. Get Qaddafi, chase his sons out, reclaim the capital....and hand the Libyan weapons over to the secret friends down in Benghazi. Or did I get that script wrong too?

If this is true then Assad has just guaranteed the strikes are going to happen. Might even lose his own allies.

I doubt its true

I’m watching Saudi Arabia sitting back in the shadows laughing at all of this. I think their day of reckoning is coming up fast, and that demonic rock in Mecca isn’t going to help.

Let us see. Syria knows that we may attack so the smart thing to do is launch another gas attack? Not sure they are that stupid.

Or Assad knows that Obama is weak and he is asserting that he can use these weapons if he wants. Obama cannot stop him.

I read that this crisis is due to the Saudis desire to overthrow the government and have a interim government installed. Then they would be free to build a natural gas pipeline to Europe. Meanwhile Putin is backing present government because they have the only pipeline exporting natural gas and that keeps the price (for them ) low. The U.S. is siding with the Saudis(as it has since Omar the tent maker got his first Rolls Royce for permission take his oil) so the U.S. will have access to the gas.

UN draws up emergency plan for Syria strike

AFP
1 hour ago

UN agencies have drawn up emergency plans for a military strike on Syria but are determined to keep delivering aid in the stricken country, a top UN official said Friday.

“We continue to update and look at our contingency planning” in case the numbers of refugees fleeing Syria rises, UN humanitarian chief Valerie Amos said after a trip to Damascus.

If true not surprising. Obama pretty much needs this to validate his WW3 meme.

Yes, one facet of it is natural gas.
The other facet is Zero and his psychotic need to back the Muslim Brudders and sell out to Al-Qeada at every chance.

So how stupid do you give them credit for? These are the same inbred camel bangers that attacked Israel three times and got their bungs busted three-in -a-row. Maybe not learning fast and stupid is the same thing? Every time I point my stupidmeter toward the ME the needle curls up like a pig tail.

yep and if we attack.

“Syria” will immediately start rocketing someone, though it wont be the Syrians doing it.

We have worse-than-amateurs running our country and defense.

John F.”u@king Traitor” Kerry is our G0d4mn Secretary of State?

I am sick about this mess because it doesn’t have to be this way.

Gas was $1.61 before Obama was elected. When was the last time it was under $3?

I’ve said it before, I can almost understand Saddam Hussein taking out his political enemies and killing them. I can see how a less reasonable person could get to that point.

All of the sudden these POS democrats want to use the military for more than just flying them home on the weekends.

Why the hell do I agree with Alan Grayson?

Up is down, black is white. The world is opposite bizzaro world now.

If this is true then Assad has just guaranteed the strikes are going to happen. Might even lose his own allies.

On the other hand Assad has to do something to show he's not afraid of Obama or anything he can do to him. So what better way to do it than launch another gas strike? His protectors China and Russia will continue run interference and the whole matter can be muddied enough that nobody will do anything. It's just a big cesspool start to finish and we should just stay out of it.

Not only that the Saudis are backing the new “opposition leader” because he is sunni from one of their tribes

Saudi money is paying for the jihadist weapons allu akhbar

Some reports from locals say the Saudis gave them the CW weapons to use as a provocation to get the West into the war against assad

imagine that

and then there is that pipeline the Saudis would like to see through Syria

Oh and sticking a Saudi finger in the eyes of the Iranians and displacing them and their militias from Syria- priceless

I call "BS" on this story.

Since sarin gas has ONLY fallen on the Free Syrian Army and not the al aqaeda-backed forces, it wasn't Assad's doing since he (like his Dad) has been trying to eliminate the Muslim Brotherhood and radical Islamists for decades.
