UN experts set off from central Damascus on Monday to investigate the site of an alleged chemical weapons attack in a Damascus suburb, a day after the Assad government gave the “green light” to allow investigators access to the site.

Remember Vietnam and the 5,000,000 acres of forests and 500,000 acres of farm land destroyed with Agent Orange (a cancerous chemical) sprayed by the US. This was not a war crime????

UN inspectors are risking their lives in Syria to help reveal the truth about the use of chemical weapons, USA and UK should at least have the courtesy and manners to await their findings. If it proves that rebels are using the poison gas then Mr Assad's troops will bring them to justice.

The UK + France + Turkey + Germany + US will smash Assad. Its so obvious he's used chemical weapons on his own citizens as his county slips from his once iron like grip. He's barely clinging to power and now he will lose everything. We CANNOT sit by and let a chemical attack go unpunished because some other country may try to do it to their population next - so we HAVE TO ACT,

  



So your logic is right after the west threatens intervention if chemical weapons are used two weeks later Assad uses them...Nato love having idiots like these as citizens.

If they can't stick on Assad, they just try again. Like what they did after Khan al-Assal, Germana and Houla massacres.

The problem the Western Axis has is, if the weapons inspectors find evidence proving that the western backed terrorists did this...Would they punish their terrorist allies as they intended to punish the Assad Gvt? The US/UK and France would have a big problem because this evidence would force them to act against their terrorist/rebel allies.

UN inspectors are investigating if CW was used in Damascus suburbs but who? we know it is wahabi/salafi .

"If the Syrian government had nothing to hide and wanted to prove to the world that it had not used chemical weapons in this incident, it would have ceased its attacks on the area and granted immediate access to the UN— five days ago," a senior administration official said.

What part of Rebel/Terrosist held terrority (where the rocket/s were fired from) does this Admin Official not get? These 'people' are totally retarded. The USA is run by violent Retards

What i dont understand is that Assad has never shot a missle at Israel why would they want him out of office? Do they want the Muslim Brotherhood in there? Really this makes no sense!! Weaken Syria to Weaken Iran is the only reason i see fit

Moon has created a hairline trigger to attack Syria. He will demand access to all Syrian chemical sites then begin the Iraq style aggression of moving the goal posts and raising the bar. The Russians think so infantile. This war is on. Remember Bush's "unfetted access.

 

Tom Tolle 26.08.2013 05:11

I agree. US/ Israel will keep on knocking on Syria's door. If this plot doesn't work out to incite a war this time, they will come up with other outragous accusations in the near future.

Commander 25.08.2013 20:22



You may be right. UN findings in Syria will probably be ignored. The results of the United Nations WMD investigation were completely ignored by the American Empire. We are probably looking at an inevitable escalation and a western instigated regime change on Damascus.

"This chemical weapon attack is another American/NATO/GCC terroristic and abominal act of murder ala "9/11". The deaths of children and innocent adults don't matter to the Bilderberg cabal. Their psychopathic Sunni islamic fanatics are only too ready to conduct terroristic acts on their behalf. Too bad the Amerikan-French-Brit ish out-of-control covert intelligence and black operations are the willing fixers. The new Nazis seems be the Western ruling governments. How long can you continue to create incidents and cry "wolf". Its unconscionable" .Agree 100%

Geneva-2 coming up,of course US is supposed to do something about it.They want to finish Assad before this summit,also UN has recently arrived in Syria to make a research about chemical attacks that took place.The fact that US arming terrorists is unacceptable.I'm absolutely sure US is responsible for chemical attack.Also interesting that this attack happened right away UN arrived.Most of Syrian soldiers have families and children among the folk which they "killing". It doesn't make sense.And by the way military members got poison symptoms after the attack.Lets ask terrorist supporter what they have provided them with.

All of these NATO/GCC threats are just part of the media psychological warfare being directed against Syria, out of frustration and desperation because they're losing. The same thing happened after the Lebanese helped the Syrians clear the border areas of rebels. And the NATO/GCC miscreants didn't follow through on their threats then, and just resorted to more state sponsored terror instead.
