Accusations that Syria used chemical weapon 'against logic' - Assad

26.08.2013 07:07

Syrian leader Bashar Assad has stressed that the claims of his government using chemical weapons made by Western countries are “an insult to common sense” and “nonsense,” in an interview to Russia’s Izvestia newspaper.

My simple comment is that it is just the same old story of America wanting to show that they are the only remaining super power of the world and that they can do as they like, for they control the worlds financial system.

Muslim aren't against the west for what we are told, they are upset that their companies, banks, countries are being taken over by the Fortune 500 american companys backed by the Central banking system, which is privately owned by the rockerfellers, mogans, rothchilds etc... Muslims are the scapegoat for the takeover of thier banking systems which are independant, once the central bank has all banks in the world borrowing off them then they can form a world bank and that world mean total world control. The ability to shut conutries down if they don't pay the high interest on the money loaned to that country.

notice how our news only shows one side of the conflict, where's the reports from the other side? I heard a report say that the sirian government thought it was the rebels firing the chemical weapons, why would they say that, they know they won't be believed that a poor underfunded little rebel army could keep their hands on expensive rockets and then fire at their own people. what if it's neither, what if it's people inside, paid to fire chemical weapons, so they keep the conflict going, so they can send America in there and over throw the government. a view to capturing the bank system, thats the cash cow.

... n terms in an escalating series of moves. This is a move in the early stages of a series of moves. It won't stop and it won't get better. The 'strategists' are committed to n terms, 'come what may!' ...

Charles 20:26: I think Americans on the road to Damascus will see the light and end up revolting against their Zionist leaders and put an end to their adventures in US.


US leaders will never see the light. All evil loves darkness and the most vile evil and satanic cult in the world controls the US government! Things will never change in the US because the people here only care about the idiot box that constantly spews lies and mind numbing garbage.

Do you really think that the Syrian army would use c. weapons with the UN @ their doorstep, Assad is right about the latest incident, it lacks common sence & logic. No countries Govt would do that under such intense scrutiny, common sense. Why does the US and UK not see this, they do, but their agenda is control.

Also to the peeps who "hate the west", hate the ones who make the decisions for us without consulting us, the public and lying about it on Corp TV. By saying that, you hate all of South America & Canada, which people here don't share the USA view at all. The ones that do, are sheeple, and live in a box.

I'm Canadian, and what the US is doing/about to do is beyond stupid. I am ashamed to live next to them, not the people, the Govt. I truly hope Harper doesn't envolve us in this, but I have a feeling he will. If it was Jean Chretien, he would of told the USA to go to heck like he did for Iraq. I truly believe that the FSA staged this to bring the foreign military intervention like they have been doing for the last 2 years. I do believe however that the C. weapons were used by Assad before then. There are no "good guys" on both sides, both kill eachother without regard of innocent lives. Canadians, open your eyes!


Victor Gottlieb Haggy 28.08.2013 02:05

The lame stream media has jumped on board. Instead of Demanding the evidence, of who used the WMD. What we are to just take thier word for it this time. I think NOT!! The rebels are not just rebels now. Al-Quiada has an agenda maybe they did it to provoke a response. Knowing that this will be WWIII. Who Knows? I want the proof in Black and white No bullshit this time.

... When this evidence does come to light, I hope the same people who say it justifys an attack on Syria still feel the same level of outrage when we discover our own governments are the real guilty ones.
If the west attacks Syria, I hope it leads to huge civil wars in the UK and US as citizens wake up to the truth.


J ust like the 9-11 attacks?


Richard Reeve 27.08.2013 17:52

I'm waiting for the day when the evidence emerges that it was the united states who supplied chemical weapons to the Syrian rebels. Come on whistleblowers, the world is DESPERATE for you to speak out. NOW is the time before more innocents lose their life when the US/UK/FR strike Syria later this week.

America is the supplier of arms and ammunitions to the rebels , these rebels are refugees of iraq who are entering into syria and america is supporting it .


vedhas bansal 27.08.2013 17:42

wow , America is a rowdy country , why it interferes in other countrys matter , firstly iraq , then korea , now syria , if America do the foolishness of war , this time its economy is going to hit badly and it will be branded as hooligen country .


Ninoto Zhimomi 27.08.2013 17:35

Watching this whole event unfold is like a script out of a all for sale hollywood movie. CNN FoxN, MSNBC and BBC entertainment are big time promoters of war against I don't know what. This time even Americans themselves are against any attacks on Syria.Sadly, we know Americans don't run America. UN found no evidence whatsoever, UN security council is a joke now. Good luck Syria, stay the same.


Sheila Fogarty 27.08.2013 13:31

LiveLeaks point to the rebels and on a smaller scale than reported. It would be foolish for Assad to use chemicals. It would be al quada, hamas, (tentacles) - muslim brotherhood's best interests to fool the public in to believing that it was assad, obama drew that red line. Why do the rebels have US made masks? Photographed... could be old photographs, but who knows? Looks like a shoving match between O and P with innocent people getting killed; including children.


rogirl 27.08.2013 11:15

Dr Assad is the sane logical intelligent and loved leader of Syria, his words make sense and should be respected by leaders of other nations. Any problems inside Syria cannot be solved by outside agents declaring war on Syria Problems inside Syria can only be solved by withdrawal of mecenary thugs fight the legitimate govt and dialogue, simple!


Andreas Segerå 27.08.2013 06:43

regime back to the stoneage. It's scary that they seem to pull this covermove off every time and getting away with it.. The blind leading the blind!


Andreas Segerå 27.08.2013 06:42

The US did it in vietnam, (the ship that nerver sunk) They did it in Irak (the wepens that never where) They did it in Afghanistan. ( the domestic fabricated 9/11attacks) And all other evil this nation done to other contries to keep the moneymaking warmachine on full speed. What will stop them from doing it this time in Syria? The answer is ofcause NO ONE. They will do it over and over again, In Sweden where I live the blind population swollow all the media fabricated stories. And the American plan seems to be working fine here. Soon every Swede and europern citizen will cry out for the US to bomb the Syrian
