And the terrorists commander in chief informed the terrorists that USA would help them if chemical weapons where used now isnt that just dandy Obama offers help by giving the murderers backed by USA a road map for help to invade Syria the use of chemical weapons and low and behold the trror cells funded and armed by Saudi backed USA go and use WMD on civillians and blame Assad, only a zionist script writter would write a plot so pathetic.

UK FO Hague is talking rubbish as usual. Mr Assad has said all along that the UN should come in and inspect for chemical weapons because it is the USA and UK backed cannibal rebels who are using poison gas to kill innocent Syrian people and attempting to blame the legitimate government of Syria. The UK BBC are extremely biased against Mr Assad and all the evidence so far " links the rebels " to the outrageous use of poison gas and chemicals against innocent people. The cannibal rebels were recently intercepted in Turkey with deadly gas and chemical weapons on their way to Syria through the Turkish corridor to Syria.

The French in particular suffer from a Napoleonic complex. They are salivating at the prospect of reestablishing French colonial rule ... I mean "liberté, égalité, fraternité" (snicker) over their former colony of Syria under the pretext of humanitarian intervention. France, however, might meet the same fate that it faced in Algeria or Vietnam with its much anticipated aggression against Syria. The French are persistent like cockroaches when it comes to pushing their "civilizing missions" and crusades.

Carla Del Ponte of the UN issued a report in May 2013 that pointed the finger at the Free Syrian Army as the culprits in using chemical weapons. As for the most recent attack, it's the FSA and its masters of America, Britain, and France that benefit, as they are chomping at the bit to war another war of aggression like they did to Libya.

The inhuman act by miscreants infiltrated by Takfiries is condemnable. Tony Blair had actually planned to overthrow muslim nation states with force to establish puppet government to please Isreal. But, syria is not Niger,Nigeria, Algeria, Mali or Libya. Cameron and Obama who are pursuing Tony Blair policy are responsible for human catastrophe.

The Syrian government did not use chemical weapons. The facility from which the chemical weapons were launched against civilians outside Damascas was under control of the FSA at the time. Former Syrian military officers who defected to the FSA with the requisite technical knowledge launched the missiles.

January 2013 -Britam defence hack -CEO - former head of the SAS -

"We'v e got a new offer. It's about Syria again. Qataris propose an attractive deal and swear that the idea is approved by Washington.

We'll have to deliver a Chemical weapon to Homs, a Soviet origin gas-shell from Libya similar to those that Assad should have. They want us to deploy our Ukrainian personnel that should speak Russian and make a video record. Frankly, I don't think it's a good idea but the sums proposed are enormous. Your opinion?"

We are coming for you anti free speech Assad supporters! Why, Ive crafted a little song for it:

".... The cruise missiles red glare, and bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that Assad was no longer there...."

Anyway, I joined the "adopt a bomb" program, where for the low low price of 6$/ as month, I can help sponsor a cruise missile to drop on Assad. Its a worthy cause!

See you in h311 Assad!

I personaly would rather believe the Syrian government version of what happened,i think they are the only honest side of all the parties involved and also because they are the side that has superior conventional weapons therefor they don't need to use anything else.


Joe Gordon 25.08.2013 11:26

So the RT says the Syrian rebels are using poison gas? The White House and Barry O says the Assad regime is using it...who do you believe since both are proven liars?


Jerry Collin 25.08.2013 11:14

Againand again,the rogue states,UK/USA/ISRAHE LL/FRANCE,but now ,welcome to Germany and its "Qatari-German Company for Pharmaceutical Industries".... .
Although more than 70% of the German disaproove of supporting the Syrians contras (the "rebel's groups)

As always all the "evidence" that France and UK present to us is their own words. Show us the evidence or stop promoting atrocity propaganda.

No support in UK for any intervention so Cameron and Hague are acting without mandate.

The Daily Mail WILL NOT post comments against WAR !!
Debka report is not worth cleaning your boots on !!!

Assad is winning, the terrorists are loosing. Now think, why would Assad give westerners a reason to bark louder, why would he give them a reason to attack? This way, they have to ignore the UN. Not Syria, Russia or China, the United Nations.
The only logical explanation is that the terrorists got the weapons, used them and blamed Assad in hope west will help them with open attack on Syria.
