Bashar al-Assad interview: ´Show me
the proof of regime chemical attack´

Telegraph [UK], by Henry Samuel & Jon Swaine

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 9/2/2013 6:28:47 PM

The Syrian president issued a dire warning that any Western military intervention could lead to "regional war" and would harm "the interests of France" "Whoever accuses must provide proof. We have challenged the United States and France to provide the slightest proof. (Snip) Mr Assad accused the US president of being a weak leader. "If Obama was strong, he would have said publicly: ´We have no evidence of the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian State´. He would have said publicly: ´The only way to proceed is through UN investigations. We therefore refer everything to the Security Council.´

Comments:
Assad is saying what any American would understand, "Mr. 0bama. Where´s the beef?" And, Assad seems to be trying to make amends with France to not attack. He claims that the terrorist fighting his regime are 80-90 per cent Al Qaeda. That would be the Free Syrian Army that 0bama wants to arm.

I think Assad makes a pretty good argument. Why are Obama and McCain and others so bent on attacking Syria? Do they want to put the MusBros in power in Syria? The MusBros might be ther ones who used the chemical weapons. What improvement on Assad would they be? What business of ours is it anyway?

The Islamists did it and threw the blame on Assad. If 0bama cannot prove otherwise so what. Leave them to fight it out amongst themselves. Stay out of Syria.

Rush pointed out that they never fail to take the credit for such attacks, so why are they denying it now?
Whom do you trust on this matter: al-Assad or Obama?

Show him the proof, Barry. Show us the birth certificate while you´re at it. It´s sad when you trust some arab despot on the other side of the world more than you trust the president of the United States. Assad calling Barry weak must really be grating on his nerves like sand.

The biggest argument that the Administration has failed to make is why it´s "red line" when chemical weapons are used, but not traditional weapons like bullets and bombs? I mean, close to 100,000 people have been killed over the past two years in Syria, but 1,500 people get killed by chemical weapons and now, NOW, this Administration is outraged?!

The truth of the matter is that we don´t know for sure who used them, and we do know for sure that there are 3 sides in this war -- the original "rebels" in Syria, who were legit. Those folks were then infiltrated or completely displaced by Al Qaeda/Muz Bros and then we have the regime, which is backed by Iran (and by default Russia and China).

If we were playing Risk, Obama would´ve already lost 10 times over. He is so far in over his head that it is embarrassing for the country.

P.S. Does anyone else think that John F. Kerry may have been in Syria during the attack? If not, what else explains the look of face now-a-days?

The US media conveniently avoids probing to find out exactly why Russia and China object to attacking Syria in the UN, even though it certainly warrants addressing. Kerry thinks that victims testing positive for Sarin is the last word re blame and doesn´t even refer to Syria in the same sentence. It´s all probably just a ruse to generate a false flag, an excuse to continue overthrowing leaders in the Middle East in order to beget Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda. Just as the irony of the Boston Marathon bombing made the North Korean news/threats disappear like magic, this chemical attack ironically happened when the news from Egypt was bad for Obama and getting worse. It´s no coincidence and beyond suspicious.

Assad out-parses our Parser in Chief! Very funny, really. Assad is NOT saying there hasn´t been a chemical attack; he is saying that there is no proof that he ORDERED it.
Obama knows he can´t prove who ordered it and that´s why Our Suddenly Tough Guy Leader went all wobbly and threw the hot potato over to Congress.
You´ve gotta love it: Assad deftly sets up Obama, who in turn rattles his saber and backs away to let the dopey Pubbies take the fall and look like warmongers.

#9 ~ the Ruskies and Chicoms are self motivated in this one.

Both want a new oil/gas pipeline to the Mediterranean so the Russians can drop more oil on the world market thereby allowing the Chinese to buy it elsewhere cheaper.

I think that´s called A DEAL.

Now, in general, the mistake the Regime has made ~ by that I mean the American Regime ~ is to fail to show a direct connection between that attack and the Syrian army.

Just because Syria´s gub´mnt has poison gas does not mean others in Syria don´t. That´s part of the problem there ~ it´s a loose fitting state with many organized ethnic groups each doing its own thing ~ provided they don´t conflict with the Alawite dominance (that´s Assad and his crowd).

One thing we all know is the Democrats do not want to admit that Saddam Hussein had WMD in the form of poison gas. Those chemicals were shipped to Syria. We don´t know who took possession of the materiel but we do know if AlQaida and that crowd got their hands on it they´d use it.

Again, the Democrats would need to admit Hussein had WMD to come to grips with ´rebels with gas´.

Good reason to vote against his getting authority to go into Syria to hide the evidence!

IF one is an honest broker/observer here they have to ask this question: WHO would gain most from a Chemical attack on civilians...the Assad regime or the ´Rebels´ (mostly AlQueda)?

It is a fact the the Rebels have access to the Sarrin Gas.

Now put on your thinking hat.

Why is Obie so hot to help the ´Rebels´?

Does the fact that he´s supported ´Rebels´ everywhere else not caring that they are mostly Muslim Radcals?

Get a clue folks, there is much more under the covers here...can you say ´wag the dog´?

I have yet to read an in depth account of who all are fighting and what all the protagonists have to gain. Being a proxy war there are numerous parties involved. What do Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the gulf states want to see happen? What are their strategic interests? What are Russia and Iran trying to protect?

I have an idea this is about much more than WMD´s. I believe Israel is much deeper involved than we know. They would like to shape the battlefield before hostilities break out with Iran. It´s important to secure the threat from Golan and to cut Hezbollah´s weapons supply lines.

As usual, we will be the last to know the facts on the ground and how they affect our strategic interests. One thing for sure, and Benghazi proved it, there are some strange bedfellows in this endeavor. Clinton and Obama sleeping with Boehner and McCain.

He will not discover with a select committee the tragedy and attack on America at Benghazi.....yet he is ready to bomb Syria. What kind of bombs Mr. Speaker? Did it ever occur to you ´mr speaker´ that the gas came from America through Benghazi to the Rebels?

How could we possibly attack the regime if there is any question about WHO used the chemicals ?

There is plenty to be skeptical about here. There is evidence, suppressed of course, that the US supplied the weapons to the rebels and made it look like a Syrian operation. Assad has no reason to gas his own people, and is winning the war with the rebels. Obama and the idiots in congress will plunge us into the next World War, thus finishing off the USA, Obama´s fondest wish.

You mean the ´miles of film´ provided by Al Qaeda Sunni ´rebel´s in Syria, or the ´miles of film´ provided by Al Qaeda operatives hired as stringers by the MSM?

Or did you mean the photo shopped pics and planted evidence provided by both of the above?

Remember...oh...about a year ago? When Al Qaeda Sunnis rebels in Syria attacked a military depot in Syria and held it for awhile? Guesssssss.... what was stored at that depot?

Ehhh...Assad´s not a nice man. Dictators are kinda like that. ...but who had anything to gain, here? Al Quaeda? Israel? Or...Assad?

This is precisely the kind of thing the U.N. was created to address - yet Obama and his chickenhawk Democrats seem to have forgotten the U.N. even exists. The U.N. sent inspectors to Syria to gather evidence. Why are we presuming to act before they have a chance to report and the U.N. to deliberate?

If there is indeed unequivocal proof that Assad used nerve gas, and if, as anticipated, China and Russia veto military intervention, it will be up to them to propose an alternative to force. In any event, this issue should first be aired before the U.N. That is what the much despised GWB did before he attacked Iraq. Only when Hussein continued to refuse complete compliance with U.N. inspectors was he given an ultimatum - which he foolishly ignored.

Obama doesn´t even seem to know what he hopes to accomplish by attacking Syria. Or if he does, he is keeping it a secret. He is a deeply untrustworthy, un- and anti-American man whose instinctive sympathies seem always to be with the most dangerous enemies of America. It would be a grave error to trust him on this matter.

Take it to the U.N. where it belongs. Then, after proof positive is provided to the world by the U.N., and the U.N., as usual, fails to take effective action, THEN talk about a unilateral American military action.

Maybe the delay will give Obama and the Democrat chickenhawks time to figure out exactly what they are hoping to accomplish besides a highly risky PR stunt.

In 1995 , a Japanese terrorist group, Aum Shinrikyo , released sarin gas in a Tokyo subway.
By the logic of Obama , McCain, Boehner , Cantor and Kerry , Clinton should have bombed Japan.
Somebody needed to be taught a lesson.
On the commute home tonight, I listened to local radio instead of sports.
The two hosts -one conservative, one liberal, were in
total agreement.
Nyet , No, Nada .
As were all the callers.
The only pro war caller was a doofus who thought we should bomb the " chemical weapons factories " as if they exist on a Google map.
He was informed that if they even exist,
they´re empty now replaced by baby milk factories
and day care centers.
And bombing a WMD depot would release the WMD and kill even more.
Colin Powell should rehab his reputation and volunteer to go to the UN
and share Barry´s insider info on WMD .
We´re all ears and like Assad, waiting for the proof.

Hate to say it, but Assad has more credibility than Zero here. Besides, there are numerous times when the Islamists attack their own to further their agenda. They have no qualms about killing their own. I don´t think Assad used them. Even if he did, this isn´t our fight. We have no business over there. Besides, it is in our best interest NOT to do anything. Zero just wants to not look like the idiot he really is. But whatever he does, he is still an idiot. I pray that Congress doesn´t do something stupid. I am already worried that McConnell is being wishy-washy. Hey, it´s clear--we do NOT have any reason to attack Syria! NONE. This is not Saddam going back on his word regarding terms of a cease fire. No more unnecessary meddling!!

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection.

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

The Pasteur Institute in Paris, France announced this week that it realized it was missing the vials and contacted the country’s National Security Agency of Medicines and Health Products to conduct an investigation on April 8, according to a news release. Although the fragments are not dangerous, they do raise concerns by revealing the lab’s vulnerability, said Dr. William Schaffner, chair of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville,

Cities and counties won’t be allowed to raise the minimum wage under a law signed Monday by Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R). Under the new law, which passed the state legislature on party-line votes earlier this year, cities would be prohibited from raising the minimum wage above the $7.25 federal mark, and they would be prevented from requiring employers to provide sick days to their employees. Backers of the new law said differing wages in different cities would be a hardship for businesses. In a statement, Fallin said different wage laws would hurt job creation.

Rev. Al Sharpton’s Easter message:

Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

An orange-black ribbon holds

As pro-Russia protests spread in eastern Ukraine, a strip of striped orange-and-black fabric has become as ubiquitous as the armed men in unmarked military fatigues. Its name is the Ribbon of Saint George. Imbued with history, it’s a powerful symbol in the ongoing information battle over Ukraine. For Russians it´s a mark of allegiance to the state – both the fearsome, expansionist Russian state of old and its modern successor under President Vladimir Putin. When pro-Russia rallies took place last December, seeking to rival the Maidan demonstrations in Kiev, very few ribbons were seen.

Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen. Davis will have a routine surgical procedure to remove bone spurs and degenerative discs that are creating compression on the nerves in her neck,” campaign spokesman Zac Petkanas said in a statement Tuesday. “This is a common issue experienced by runners and endurance athletes,” he said. Davis, of Fort Worth, will undergo the outpatient surgery at the Fort Worth Brain and Spine Institute. Dr. Thomas Ellis will perform the

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million
