Here is a big question that NOBODY is asking. Where did Assad get his weapons? He did not manufacture them. So, did he buy them from the Russians? Did he produce them from precursor chemicals he purchased on the open market? Or, did he get them from Iraq?

I think Saddam, with Russia's help, trucked them to Syria.

Not sure if Syria had the tech and capability to manufacture chemical weapons, but we all know Saddam did and even used them on the Kurds. I strongly believe that Syria’s chem/weaps came from Iraq. Need I remind anyone of the long truck convoys leaving Iraq towards Syria just prior to the Iraq invasion?

Hmmmm ..?? According to some of the maps that FOX is showing on TV - it lists the “manufacturing” locations, and the stockpile locations.

But, I too have surmised that a lot of the Syrian stockpiles are from Iraq. I think it’s possible to test some of these and determine by the chemical composition that they did come from Sadaam.

But, what really galled me was the fact that the info put on TV clearly let Assad know that we knew where the stuff was .. so Assad could move the stuff before we launched a strike.

Isn’t that really aiding and abeting the enemy ..??

Assad undoubtedly “inherited” chemical stockpiles from Iraq, but he has also imported the components of chemical weapons from Russia and even the UK.

Syria originally was supplied with Chemical WMD from Egypt. Then they went on to build and manufacture their own. They have perhaps one of the largest active stockpiles in the world. Anyone advocating a limited strike against Syria needs to be put into the insane asylum.

Or were the latest attacks false flag operations by the rebels with weapons supplied by the US from Benghazi?
