Chemical weapons in Syria?
Just imagine that!

Daily Inter Lake [Kalispell MT], by Frank Miele

Original Article

Posted By:davesenior, 12/9/2012 3:16:11 AM

Last week, the world was told that Syria’s President Bashar Assad is poised to use chemical weapons against his own people in a last-ditch effort to retain power despite his growing unpopularity.[SNIP]In fact, there has been a story around since 2006 that Syria inherited a large chemical weapons stash from its neighbor Iraq when Hussein tried to rid his country of evidence of WMDs just before the 2003 invasion that toppled him from power.That story has received blessed little attention over the years in large part because it would have given credence to the claims of the Bush White House

Comments:
Assad equals Saddam equals Morsi equals Khadafy equals Khameini equals madman. No matter which side we are on in the Middle East we are on the wrong side unless we stand with Israel.

An entire industry was built around the "Bush lied, people died" fabrication propagated by the Democrats and their media court eunuchs. In this myth, we learned that Arab dictators are innocent victims of bloodthirsty Republican cowboy-presidents, victims who would never dream of stockpiling WMDs or hiding them from UN inspectors. The people who spread these lies are now in charge of national security. I believe 0% of what they say.

I´m not going to worry about Syria´s WMDs until I see Chemical Ali surface there.

Bush has been vindicated on lots of things.If we had an honest media,his blame for the economy wouldn´t even exist.When you have morons claiming 4.5% unemployment was a failed policy or tax cuts don´t work,only government leeches who don´t want to work believe it.

Now,the more people who get shoved into permanent unemployed status,it actually drives Obama´s approvals up.

Of course there were WMDs in Iraq and were transferred to Syria before the war. This is a very good summary of those events. Must read please?

Up here in MA we have a retired colonel(?)Hunt who has stated unequivocally that those weapons in syria are NOT saddam´s. His reasoning? If they were saddam´s, Pres. Bush would have told us. No one did a follow up question to ask him what all those caravans leaving iraq were carrying.

Some years ago I read a book written by someone whose name I have forgotten but it must have been Gen Sada because the author had been in the Iraqi air force, had defied orders to execute, just as Sada says, and described the planes flying to Syria with weapons of mass destruction. If all this was not known, it should have been known. I read the book and I certainly do not have access to any information unavailable to our government.

In September, 2012, the U.S. government made a special request at the U.N. for help in dealing with Syria´s possession of WMDs (various forms of chemical weapons) that the Zero administration said had been moved to Syria from Iraq just before the Iraq war.
President George W. Bush listened too closely to the critics on Iraq, kept postponing the invasion, waiting for UN sanctions, and apporval for the invasion. That gave time for Saddam Hussein to send the weapons to Syria.
I suspect that the Bush administration didn´t say anything about the WMDs after the invasion because it would have made them look bad for delaying the war.

Of course President Bush was right about saddam´s WMDs -- but the media decided on the motto "Bush lied -- people died" and that´s the story WE got....

Sooooooo now the truth is coming out and President Bush is being vindicated....

OMG -- WE desperately need grown/ups in the White House....

Merry Christmas President and Mrs. Bush and a Happy New Year....

I think it was the Swedes that released the video of the conga line of trucks going from Iraq to Syria before the war started. The video disappeared extremely fast. Never seen the media move so quick on that one.

The left in this country will never ever be able to admit that Bush was correct. There is not enough duct tape in the country to keep their heads from exploding. I suspect they would vote tea party before admitting that Bush was correct on WMD´s.

C? Swati tolja. and tolja and tolja. Sada said it, and Loftus and others said that the Russians helped Saddam get WMD out of Iraq, and a third author stated that, at the time of our invasion, Saddam´s sons transported weapons from a site north of Baghdad across the border to al Qaim in Syria, where there were transhipped to - I believe- the Bekaa valley.


Shame on the naysayers and the sheep who believed them. Shame on the liberal press and the Democratic swine who were willing to smear George Bush. Someone will pay the butcher´s bill.

The question would be, "where did Syria get these WMD?".

Did they have a Chemical weapons program that the Obama administration failed to detect?

Did they get them from Iraq before the Gulf War?

Did someone else provide them to Syria?


None of these are good outcomes for Obama admin, Sec. Clinton, U.N. Rice, etc...

Either they failed to detect a WMD program, failed to detect WMD smuggling operation, or BUSH WAS RIGHT!

Couple that with a lamestream lefty media that lies on a daily basis...("the daily drumbeat from dawn until well after midnight") and you have a bunch of idiots following closely and believing a bunch of liars. Then top that with an administration run by a thug liar Muslim-loving Alinsky Marxist and his demented old idiot buddy and there you have it! The perfect scenario for this story to have legs! Get it?

I´ll never stop respecting GW for what he said and what he did, and I´ll NEVER believe a word written about him from the ass-press liars! They lie and swab the rump of Obama because they´re his lap dogs--Liberals who hate people just like US!~

#1 is right.

And don´t forget, Iraq had plenty of time to move its WMDs to Syria (probably with Russian help).

For there was a long interval between the first steps taken against Saddam Hussein in 2002, until the war on Saddam actually commenced.

Iirc, this interval was about 9 months --
during which time President Bush sought (and got) United Nations approval.

Yet the MSM revisionist history is that there was a "rush to war" in Iraq. Nothing could be further from the truth; but sadly, that is what most people believe today.

Not only were chemical/biological weapons moved from Iraq to Syria, our troops in the first Gulf War also were exposed to some of these weapons. I know of more than one Gulf War veteran who has given birth to children with handicaps caused by Saddam´s chemicals. Furthermore, troops were making pre-war sperm donations in case they were exposed to chemicals which cause birth defects. Sadly, some handicapped children were not diagnosed until after a younger child was born, and military parents had more than one handicapped child. I also know of Gulf War vets who had serious post war health problems caused by chemical/biological exposures. Saddam sowed what he reaped.

My concern is that Assad and others are willing to use chemical weapons on American soil as well, hence Obama´s three week vacation to Hawaii. Obama is "getting out of Dodge" for the apocalypse date -- may we ask WHY???

Well, I take heart in the fact that when the Islamist use their weapons on the US they will probably kill the people who voted to trust them

Having the terrorist kill several million US socialist in NYC, LA and San Francisco might be the best thing that could happen to the US. It is much cleaner option than a civil war

The campaign to marginalize conservatives and their traditional values has many facets.Last week, we talked about the efforts in academia to restrict access to people whose beliefs are not in tune with modern liberalism, but that is just one small component of an ongoing multi-front war.Today, let’s focus on climate change and the effort by the left to lull you into peaceful acquiescence of a world view that will allow “people smarter than you” to make massive changes in our economy in order to protect you from an impending crisis.

What is it about liberals that makes them so afraid of free speech, free thought and free expression of ideas, especially on college campuses?

You have to hand it to Nancy Pelosi: She was dead-on accurate when she claimed Congress had to pass Obamacare before we would find out what was in it. The latest case in point is the “Shared Responsibility Payment,” which appears in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, but hasn’t been widely appreciated for its Orwellian genius until the IRS started to promote it this year. The “Shared Responsibility Payment” is the penalty U.S. citizens have to fork over to their federal overlords if they fail to accede to the government’s order that they purchase health insurance for themselves

Chalk one up for the good guys — well, sort of. After a week of mockery, derision, and disdain, the Federal Communications Commission has announced that it won’t put observers in newsrooms after all. FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai’s op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on Feb. 10 had alerted the public to the dangers of having government representatives querying news bosses about how they decide what stories to cover — and which ones not to cover. The implicit threat of such heavy-handed research is that the government could be on the verge of announcing that IT will decide what stories are important to

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
