British Foreign Secretary William Hague says the UK and the US have seen evidence that Syria is preparing to use chemical weapons.

Mr Hague told the BBC there was "enough evidence to know that they need a warning".

The foreign secretary did not give details, as he said the evidence had come from "intelligence sources".

Oh, this is just great news (<sarcasm). Just what this region needs, chemical warfare. Talk about going from bad to worse.

I wonder if this is new?  It's posted today's date but such warnings have been going on for several days now. Hmmm

Can you imagine cleaning up the mess that would be left after the dying is done?  Not sure how persistent in the environment this stuff is but I read that one consideration for any intervening force (US or Britain) is that when we break it we "buy" it.  IOW the removal and destruction of the substances would be on our tab.  Hundreds of millions of $ according to the article.

Different officials are saying different things.


I wouldn't trust any of the media just now. Or moronic MP's that I wouldn't trust with my bicycle.

Actually the news has been pretty consistent though with slight variations.  The only person I have seen who says NO evidence is available that the agent has been weaponized for use is Ban ki Moon at the UN.  US, Britain have both said they have intel that shows them preparing weapons for use.  From a tactical standpoint it makes sense.  This kind of weaponry takes time to prepare and would be of no use as a unit was being over run.  Wind conditions have to be factored and keeping your own troops ready to fight after the chemicals have been used on the battlefield is critical.  But having them ready still does not mean they will be used for sure.

You know the US has so many problems of debt, some don`nt want to commit to another war.We have always help when needed. but some how I don`t think  the Obama adminstration will to do anything  but send a few troops to be slaughter.

I was watching a show the other day on how these weapons can be loaded ,they put half the mixture in one end of the bomb and another mixture at the other end ,when the bomb hits and the mixtures mixs together they exploed the gases,now they do say Assad may have order to load these gases.

I really hope you are correct.  But this is a problem (potentially) that will have to be solved by someone.  What a mess.

I think that if he uses them and the US or Russia do not very quickly intercede, Israel is going to be striking all those sites by air.  The environmental devastation would be awful.  Most of it would burn, I guess, but it only takes a small amount to kill many people.  Not to mention that if Israel is drawn in they might all stop fighting each other and turn on a common foe.

Aye... well I hope they never got their intel from the same guys who were positive Iraq had WMDs armed and aimed at "the West".

we should stay out of Syria. let the Arab league deal with the problem. its about time they took responsibility in their own backyard, with America and the UK concentrating more and more in the far east. its about time they - the Arab league stood up.

Aye, that ended up being as dangerous a threat as me aiming my pee at the West.

That is so wrong it's laughable.

Africa has needed help for over 20 years and nothing.


The US and Europe only help when they can gain from it.
