Syria loads chemical weapons into
bombs; military awaits Assad´s order

NBC News, by Jim Miklaszewski & M. Alex Johnson,

Original Article

Posted By:draggingtree, 12/5/2012 6:53:37 PM

The Syrian military is prepared to use chemical weapons against its own people and is awaiting final orders from President Bashar Assad, U.S. officials told NBC News on Wednesday. The military has loaded the precursor chemicals for sarin, a deadly nerve gas, into aerial bombs that could be dropped onto the Syrian people from dozens of fighter-bombers, the officials said. As recently as Tuesday, officials had said there was as yet no evidence that the process of mixing the "precursor" chemicals had begun. But Wednesday, they said their worst fears had been confirmed:

Obamao´s legacy. Death and destruction throughout the middle east.

These are Iraq´s WMD and IMHO there are many in congress who knew it from the start but continued on with the lie that there were no WMDs.

Agree totally #1.
Just heard Moon on the subject saying they must be ´´brought to justice´´. No. They need to be executed, and quickly. No Syrian people should be subjected to this horrible death.

I am convinced we intend to intervene. Truth will again be the first casualty.

For now we have the unimpeachable words and leaks from our side.

OTOH Syria´s record over 50 years is hardly reassuring. They may really be mad enough to use Sarin and/or other chemical weapons.

So, Assad is finally putting Saddam´s chemical weapons to use. Everyone wanted to know where the WMDs went. Well, here´s the proof. I guess Sad Dam Insane´s legacy of killing his own people with gas lives on in Assad.

What has Assad got to lose by using nerve gas?

He´s already considered a war criminal so he could be tried and executed anyway.

He has everything to gain by showing that he´s crazy enough to use WMDs.

He could use them and supply Hezbollah and Hamas with Sarin.

Any attack on Assad could carry the treat of world wide terror attacks.

That threat alone could protect Syria and Iran from any consequences as they gather more power for the Shiite faction of the religion of Satan.

And it will be a ruinous heap.

They will be for flocks
Which lie down, and no one will make them afraid.

The kingdom from Damascus,

What proof does Obama have that this has happened? Is he going to start World War III over Syria? Why are even a thousand more Syrians dead a bigger concern than the previous thousands? If Russia has drawn a red line in front of Syria, why not Russia deal with the problem? What is the US interest in Syria?

I guess one of my shortcomings is that I can´t discriminate between the evil of targeting and killing innocents by ones, 5s, 12s or a thousand at a time.

Explosives are also "chemical weapons." It´s the chemistry of fast-expanding hot gases.

#1: Right you are. Even more reason to be contemptuous of Senators and Representatives.

#11: Indeed. Our service-members are one of our most-precious resources. The way they are treated by this Administration is criminal. Maybe one day....

They will load the bombs under cover of darkness - tonight.

They will use them and nobody will know it until days later is my guess.

We will wake up any day now and find we are going in.

First thing that´ll happen is oil goes to $150 minimum.

On its way to $200 @ barrel.

Iran will react - probably try to sink a US Navy ship or two and then arm the Strait of Hormuz.

We will be forced to attack Iranian artillery batteries on Iranian soil to keep the Strait open..

The Sarin will fall into the wrong hands and be used on Israel ...

...or smuggled in to use on us.

This might be the spark.

I think that any use of nerve gas will be the spark that sets off WWIII. That will be the tripping point. If even one drop of nerve gas is used on any Israelis, all bets are off.

The US surely has drones based in Turkey and Israel that are both monitoring Assad´s military and his chemcial weapons storage areas. These drones could launch Hellfire missiles at suspected bunkers, aircraft and artillery positions if Syrian troops are seen in protective garments. The Navy´s Sixth Fleet should also be in the eastern Mediterrean with 60+ aircraft and cruise missiles. So, we have the forces. Besides forces, CIA must be in contact with senior Syrian military, warning them not to use these toxins and to secure them against rebel seizure. Whether these officers will listen is the unknown. Hopefully, Assad the Reformer will flee rather than destroy his people.

I just want to go back to Benghazi and find out just what the heck out government (pick your agencies) were doing over there. Why was the guy from Turkey there and he got out alive, I guess.

This report was pushed from CNN, now NBC and FOX is following suit... Something stinks there is a "somethin´ in the wood pile".

#27, I share your suspicions about this story.

It does seem that the MSM, aka Obama´s lackeys, are pushing this frightening story.

It might be true; but another possibility is that it is propaganda by an Obama regime that wants to do the same thing to Syria as it did to Libya.

Benghazi annex was a Libyan arms recovery & delivery to Turkey for re-distribution to The Muslim Brotherhood operation. Stevens was there on a social mission related to a school but a kidnapping attempt was supposed to occur, requiring Obama to trade the Blind Sheik to get him back... but the Russians (who are angry that we are arming Mo Bro invaders) were tipped off & turned it into a massacre.

+++ Propaganda Alert ++++ Not only does NBC not reference a verifiable source, they do not have a source in Syria to inform them!

Obama & Hitlery seem hell bent on starting WW3 this year; Anyone know why, I´d sure like to know!

It will be the Anti-NWO Alliance of Russia, China, India & many smaller nations vs NATO, US & The Muslim Brotherhood....

As most real conservatives know, Obama, by his own admissions, appointments, associates, and actions, is a hard-core, 21st century, Marxist revolutionary. This means that while he has no real plan for what his utopian, pie-in-the-sky collectivist state would look like, or how it would survive as an economic entity, he is dedicated to destroying our existing free, constitutional, capitalist republic to start the process. It also means that like all Marxists, archaic and modern, his primary enemy is what Marx called the bourgeoisie – the Middle Class. As those who went to school while actual history

A week from now, a dramatic new federal policy is set to go into effect that threatens U.S. national security, thousands of jobs and more. In a bit of irony, President Obama stood Tuesday with first responders who could lose their jobs if the policy goes into effect. Most Americans are just hearing about this Washington creation for the first time: the sequester. What they might not realize from Mr. Obama´s statements is that it is a product of the president´s own failed leadership.

Leaving aside for the moment the likelihood that parties and party politics in America will become moot within the next few years (owing to the emergence of a single party or the country’s dissolution into civil war), conservatives and libertarians are finding themselves at an unpleasant crossroads. While some observers gave up on the leadership of the Republican Party long ago, it is now becoming apparent to rank-and-file Republicans that the GOP leadership and its prominent operatives are wholly complicit in the fundamental transformation of America.

Outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta reportedly believes the military should receive a pay cut in order to respond to the budget cuts facing the Pentagon — a position that might strengthen the Republican push to reverse President Obama’s executive order raising the salary of Vice President Joe Biden and other federal officials. “Panetta will recommend to Congress that military salaries be limited to a one percent increase in 2014,” CNN reports, explaining that Panetta is “effectively decreasing troop salaries next year . . . The decision comes as the secretary is stepping up the rhetoric about dire cuts at the Pentagon if sequestration goes into effect.”

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket.

The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t
