Syria warned on Saturday that rebels could use chemical weapons in their fight againstPresident Bashar al-Assad's forces, and insisted that the government will never unleash sucharms on its own people.


Theres actually a video on youtube supposedly released by the rebels showing the use of what appears to be nerve gas on rabbits. In the video, the rebels warn the Syrian government forces that they will die just like the rabbits.

Reports out in the last 24 hours that the rebels have seized a "chemical site" where chlorides are made.  Supposedly this could be one of THE chemical weapon manufacture sites.  Lots of rumour from not very good sources that a confrontation is close.  I think the rebels are trying hard to gin up an intervention.

Dang. I really hope their internal conflict doesn't turn any nastier than it has.

There's every probability that the situation is being hyped to a degree.  The video I saw from Arutz Sheva at first glance was awful, then after watching it again I felt there was just something about it that wasn't right and I couldn't place my finger on it....
I still don't know if it was accurate or not but as someone commented - it was only 4 casualties - there almost certainly would be many more if an attack had been real.  Most likely the talk is being manufactured to push the idiots in Washington into another frenzy of cruise missile launches.

If this is true then Assad has truly lost the war, I don't think his army has any confidence anymore. Or he is saying that to get more people united against the rebels, and imo it is not a win-win situation

Someone posited on a different site I visit that the injuries shown on that video were most likely from white phosphorous.  It seems logical considering it was apparent burns to hands and faces and feet.

Why do people sign themselves up to put their fellow Man to death?

Say what you will, thats what it boils down to at the end of the day.

Assad said "the rebels"?   I think you meant the terrorists.  He's fighting a "war on terror" too, as it turns out.

And the moral hazard continues...

"The power to declare war, including the power of judging the causes of war, is fully and exclusively vested in the Legislature.  The Executive has no right, in any case, to decide the question" ~ James Madison
"Peace cannot be achieved by force, only by understanding."  ~ Albert Einstein
"To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.   To impose on them a wretched life of hunger and deprivation is to dehumanize them." ~ Nelson Mandela

Well if the rebels have captured chemical weapons then Assad is in real trouble.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
