The UN is under growing pressure from Syria to do its job and prevent an American “war of aggression,” and the Arab League demanding punishment for “war criminals” in the Syrian government.

USA are using aggressive propaganda against Mr Assad who is the legitimate leader of Syria. Obama is trying to steam roll leaders of other countries to wage illegal and unjustified war on Syria and does not have any evidence except his own manufactured hearsay which would not be admissible in a court of law. This hysteria by the USA government works the same as he who shouts loudest is right "WHICH OF COURSE IS REDICULOUS". Have patience and do not let the USA pressurise the UN or anyone else to act in a warmongering fashion. FOOLS RUSH IN WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD.

Where are all the rest of the world leader. That must stand up and fight for what is right. Don't just accuse Assad. what about the rebel ? We must support for the whole investigation to all parties and the supporter (Turkey, US, British, Bahrain), not just Assad alone. . Reveal the truth and then we talk about punishment. We must be very suspicious why France, British and US want to punish Assad without full investigation ? There must be something behind

I am just wondering!!! since when the USA started caring about the Arabs ?
I just cant imagine that Assad regime will Gas his own people as I cant see that he may gain any thing in doing that when knowing the warning over his head of not to cross the red lines!! The terrorist has all the options to gain of attacking civilians as they are a bunch of mercenary terrorist paid by Zionist and their alliance from out side the Syrian boarders.
So give us a break and leave the Arabs to deal with their own problems.
Arabs has always been under hard pressure from their own Zionist leaders through mankind existence.

I don't believe it, the Arab League is calling for war criminals trial against Syrian officials, talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

The Arab League should be renamed either to USA's Arab puppets or Arab dictators league.

There are two sides of the "evidence" coin: #1 Syria's evidence to prove that it has not used chemical weapons #2 U.N. and western evidence (intelligence) to prove that Syria used chemical weapons on civilians. Depending on which side of the coin holds strength, would likely determine the future course of action.

[quote name='Horus' time='02.09.2013 19:33']ATTN SYRIA, If you submit your Chemical weapons stockpiles...[/quote ]

@Horus: the problem Horus is that Obama and his handlers already made up his mind to intervene no matter what Damascus does. I know what you mean, I was thinking the same thing. That even Russia serve as broker to hand over these stockpiles to the UN or whatever. Maybe its not too late for this. But then it may not amount to much since Al-Nusra already has these weapons and will continue to use them in order to incriminate Assad for them.

hopefully the UN will do the right thing and sanction the US and other "friends of Syria"

Even the Arab league is against Syria. Bashar is a dictator, and he has no legitimate reason to remain power. He an his wife just want to live the jet set life; They want the smiles and the adulation that comes with being in a position of power.


Th ere are dictators in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Bahrain -- yet these nations have good relations with Washington. The Americans approve of any government type, even dictators, as long as it serves Washington, "strategic interests".


Horus 02.09.2013 19:33

ATTN SYRIA, If you submit your Chemical weapons stockpiles to the International community in a peaceful manner, so they can be properly disposed of, they will not have an excuse to attack you! Replace the Chemical Weapons with legal weapons! they are of no use to you they are nothing but a hindrance on your peoples. Their is no point in Keeping Weapons that you obviously cant use, get rid of their excuse to attack you. Stand in front of the world and tell the international community they can come get the weapons their so worried about in a peaceful manner!


Think Peace 02.09.2013 19:17

@Db Ben: your logic makes no sense! You are talking about availability of chemicals and big machineries to make sarin gas??? Now days everything is available to make anything.....people go on internet and make even bombs which can kill hundredsw and thousands of people and you are talking about mixing A+B+C....etc and creating deadly combinations! Which part of the world you are living in? Terrorists did use chemical attacks in Japan, USA and other places how did they make these chemical weapons? Obviously their government did not provide them to attack their own people!


RichardD 02.09.2013 19:16

Improvised explosive devices manufactured in garages and basements are highly effective weapons of war, anyone who took chemistry in school can appreciate that if you mix the right chemicals together, that you can get some very toxic gas. The foreign government operatives in Syria can easily manufacture deadly gas weapons, and smuggle purpose built ones in just like all of the other weapons that they're flooding Syria with. The US and British contention that the opposition didn't carry out the chemical weapons attacks because they lack this weapons capability is non sense.


RichardD 02.09.2013 18:55

Interest rates are rising on US government debt, the number of Americans opposed to more unnecessary war is going to increase as the federal government deficit grows, the economy worsens, and the number of people on food stamps increases. The currency is being debased by a government that can't even sell it's debt to anyone but itself, let alone balance it's budget.


Db Ben 02.09.2013 18:48

i'm pretty sure that it takes a lot more chemicals, process's and machinery to manufacturer sarin gas, then what is displayed in the picture provided to us by syria.

such pics may fool the people but cannot fool the experts !

Amateurs doing a false flag.


Yeah EVERYTHING is a false flag. The only people in the world who are capable of evil are employed by the USA or Israel. Thats why there is zero crimes committed anywhere else in the world, right? Its inconceivable that some people don't want to live under Assad and his "President for life" policy.

It must be hard carrying around that big brain of yours.
