Rebels may use Chemical Weapons

26 posts in this topic

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. JMO

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.

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...

No. That is not confirmation of chemical weapons use. Hell, the West claims he loaded up Sarin. Sarin does not cause chemical burns.

Does not matter which, its still harmful and still is a threat. They might and might not. But I don't want anyone supporting Assad

My guess is it's some group within the rebels. The government doesn't benefit if an intervention happens.
