Skip to comments.Assad: We could blind Israel in an instant

We now possess deterrent weapons that are more important and more sophisticated than chemical weapons, Syrian President Bashar Assad told visitors to his palace in Damascus on Thursday.
He emphasized that he had no need for chemical weapons.
According to the report, which was carried by Hezbollahs paper Al-Akhbar, Assad said this was because the situation in Syria has never been better, as we created chemical weapons in the 80s as a deterrent against Israels nuclear arsenal. Today, it is no longer a weapon of deterrence. We have weapons that are more important and more sophisticated to challenge Israel, which we can blind in an instant.

Sounds like a implied reference to an EMP device.
However, those considering blinding Jews might read up on that happened to those who blinded Sampson.
Just a thought.
Definetly sounds like there is something other than just chemical weapons in Syria.
Wonder if he has something else or just a bluff
Doesn’t he have other, more immediate enemies?
[Getting rid of] the chemical weapons is not the goal of the United States and their allies, and they never have been, he said. They wanted to change the balance of power and to protect Israel.
Assad knows that the goal of the U.S. specific to Syria is not to support Israel, but rather to support Saudi, Qatari and Sunni interests. Assad frames it as U.S. support for Israel as theatre to play to Syria's 75+% Sunni Muslim population, along with all this other sabre-rattling. Israelis, in turn, know that Assad is posturing for internal purposes.
Sounds like Saddam promising the Mother of all Battles.
That’s just plain dumb bluster.
The knife cuts both ways....
Could they keep an EMP localized enough to not affect themselves or Jordan?
Maybe Asshead needs to think about how foolish Obama looked with his red line graffiti all over the place. It is probably best for him to just to shut his mouth.
“Could they keep an EMP localized enough to not affect themselves or Jordan?”
Loss of power grid means little to Muslims who largely still live in the pre-industrial squalor Islam is so talented at producing.
Much of the Muslim world still has power outages, etc.
Lastly, EMP is far less critical to a transportation system based upon hooves or feet than would be a modern nation state such as Israel.
No; not at the altitude it would have to be detonated.
“Loss of power grid means little to Muslims who largely still live in the pre-industrial squalor Islam is so talented at producing.”
Sure, but what about Assad’s own weapons systems?
They’ve been working on an EMP for years - - and are working on a missile with a long enough range to reach here - but Israel is just next door
Yes, but I would suspect that they would take a whole bunch more with them, than Sampson did.
One EMP weapon from ASShead would be his last. There would be nothing left but the glass.
Assad is talking about his WWII signal mirror. On a sunny day it can really hurt your eyes if someone shines it at you.
Do you think Obama would pull the trigger? I don’t.
People who tell you what they can do usually can’t.
Russians probably parked some nukes there similar to how the US parked nukes in Turkey.
Israel maintains a triad.
