Russia: UN chem attack report doesn’t show whodunit

16.09.2013 19:53

Russia’s UN representative says the newly unveiled report on the chemical attack of August 21 in Syria offers no “bulletproof data or conclusions” on who ordered it. The US and UK say the study confirms the regime was behind the attack.

Typical US/EU/UN, to blame Assad for chemical attacks! But at first the media, told us that it was only functioning if they where shot outfrom an airplane! Now we now better, they can easily be mounted on powerfull artillery! So I think you should take into concideration that it is very unlikely that Assad's regime would do such a grave mistake, witch at the time, was the same as inviting the US/Nato to attack! You can mean what you want, but one thing! President B. Assad is not suicidal or stupid!

Syrian civil war is basically a power-play between two Islamic factions slaughtering each other: shia and sunni. Assad={shia, secular, moderate, pro-Iran} and Rebels={sunni, religious, jihadist, pro-Saudi}. Without ongoing US/Saudi military assistance to the terrorists, this war would probably be over in a week. Saudi Arabia is trying to get the region in Sunni order for their next move of Muslim world domination. This can’t happen without direct US involvement in Syria.

Stay tuned. America are going to play dirty as usual and lie bold face to the World to make their case for
'military intervention' in Syria... There are too many western players(countries) whining the same 'humanitarian intervention Merde' They want to dictate who runs the country. Hegemony plain and simple.

Yeah our chemical weapons are 90 percent destroyed if you don't believe me just Google it. If you ask me some people like you don't do research before you comment and it is why so many people are stupid and don't know what they are talking about.


So, you admit that we are out of compliance? Our weapons were supposed to all have been destroyed by April 29, 2007. We got an extension until April 29, 2012. What is today's date?

What about the United States stockpile of Chemical Weapons? What about our WMD? Oh wait, the US is answerable to no one but everyone is answerable to the US right? I hope that some day soon, America's government gets their butt handed to them by another country.

Let's never forget that the U.S. dropped 20 million tons of deadly herbicides over Viet Nam, Cambodia, and Laos - oh and one very large radioactive bomb


If you are going to name what the US did in World War 2 how about you get your facts right. Anyone can tell you that we dropped two Atomic bombs on Japan. Not one but two.

@ Ash Capricorn. aka ; My lovely propagandist.

A crime against humanity... calculated .. documented.

I am simply here to shed light on all the red herring smelling up this message board.. I feel it my duty to disinfect . I will now bug off though at your request.... I am tiring of this conversation.....

We should all be listening to the wisdom shared before the US got involved in WWI. It was as relevant then, as it is today. "Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception. ' - Mark Twain (1916)

It looks like the O admin is channeling its inner Hitler -- "But the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.

The sarn gas attack ..... just like the sinking of the Cheonan ... wilfully and falsely blamed on the North Koreans when we know it the Amerikans .. its USS Columbia. Whenever the White House inmates speaks in unison and unceasingly repetitive in their allegations, you can bet it is a lie. And the sinking of the Cheonan by the N Koreans was a big fat lie. What's 46 S Korean lives?

Ther e's no coincidence but the illusionof coincidence. The timing ccouldn't be better to get rid of Hatoyama and scuttle the moves to unite the East Asian countries.

@Ash Capricorn

My darling propagandist Capricorn... The UN report had no intent of proving a claim of responsibility. It's sole purpose was only to determine if and what type of CW was employed. The evidence is there if you would look away from your state controlled media outlet for just one moment.

Che erio!


Jeff Waller 17.09.2013 20:03

@ Ash Capricorn

& quot;No plausible alternate scenarios"
"There is no credible evidence that any opposition group has used or has access to CW (chemical weapons). A number continue to seek a CW capability, but none currently has the capability to conduct a CW attack on this scale."
Chemical and biological weapons experts have been relatively consistent in their analysis, saying only a military force with access to and knowledge of missile delivery systems and the sarin gas used could have carried out an attack capable of killing hundreds of people.

P.S . Good night Rasputin....

@ Ash Capricorn
The fact is , as most dictators eventually discover, once their power base erodes and splinters all bets are off the table. . I stand with the people of the region who want to be free from corruption and live a normal life.....want to be free.. It could take two hundred years to flush out the disfunction that is rampant in this region of the world. But at the end of the day every human being that lives there deserves to be free.. Sadly, right now they are just pawns in a very old game ......


Jeff Waller 17.09.2013 19:27

@ Ash Capricorn
How can I forget something that is not true..? Although I was not actually THERE, I can deduct a few facts from the evidence. The CW attack was perpetrated by the regular army. Only they have access to cw and the ability to employ tactical surface to surface missiles with Sarin.... This was a detailed and planned out military operation that could not have been pulled off by a band of rag tag foreign mercenaries. If I am to believe the opposite then how and when did the Assad regime supposedly loose control of said tactical missiles with CW?

Ok, Lets have an Independent Minded-UN Secretary General in the future, Neutral one, not a ...poodle

It's really quite simple to analyze the Ban Ki-Moon "findings" . If it was the Syrian gov't who did the chem attack, Ki-Moon wouldn't even hesitate to say so (he's only a loyal puppet of the West). However, UN's Carla del Ponte said it was the rebels who did it while two released hostages of the rebels also declared it was the rebels who did the chemical attack. But Ban Ki-Moon, being loyal to his West masters (financing the rebels), decided to be "on the fence" on his "official" UN report (which didn't say much other than saying, 'there was a chemical attack') ... therefore, it was the West-financed rebels who did it.
