If they're busy using it on each other, they aren't using it on us!
I think marketwatch is in it for the hits.
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.
Tear gas, perhaps?
Or Assad's way of tellng the world he couldn't care less what Obama says or does.
No way this is true.
They would have to be dumber than Biden
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.
this entire episode reeks of a false flag.
Nothing on twitter either.
Or Assad knows that Obama is weak and he is asserting that he can use these weapons if he wants. Obama cannot stop him.
