...here we go...?
 
2012-12-23 10:18:00 PM
Ummmm... I thought what they had the most of was Sarin. It would do a lot more damage than 7 dead.

I'm hopeful they have not deployed them yet, if ever.

It seems that only Al Jazeera is reporting this at the moment.

Yeah, though, usually Al Jazeera is pretty good about such things...of course, I don't know if they have the same standards for blogs on their domain.

This link makes things more confusing. This site claims it was the rebels using it on Syrian troops.

And the rebels have claimed to have suffered chemical attacks before.  It was proved false.

Huh. "Killed within an hour" does not sound like sarin...well, it does, technically, but I thought sarin killed quite rapidly.

Sigh. You can never tell these days with reports such as these...

Yeah, which was so stupid. Why the hell would they do something so obviously fake? Unless, the folks in charge aren't quite the highest wattage bulbs in the pack.

Entertaining the notion that this is legit, it could've been a small-scale attack or a botched deployment, or some other random cause for low casualties. Very little has come out so far about this. I"m hesitant to make a call on anything at this point.

Although... My first thought what the sh*t is probably wicked old... I just wanted to check the Wiki...

"Sarin degrades after a period of several weeks to several months. The shelf life can be shortened by impurities in precursor materials. According to the [12]. "

If it's old sh*t, this very well could be.

Or, weather patterns. Could be anything. If it's an actual use of the weapon... I say we take out all known sites of Assad leadership. Keep it like Libya. Take out the hard targets and let the various ground forces figure out the rest.

No leadership structure on this planet should be allowed to get away with a chemical attack. Just a brief pass through the CS room was enough to make me see just how f*cked up the entire notion of chemical warfare is.

Yep, I got to take a spin through the gas room myself, once upon a time. I almost cupped my hand to my face, and the instructors about sh*t a brick and stopped me. You don't even think about it. Then the snot, oh the snot. Everywhere.

2wolves: I hope this is propaganda.


Me too.

The problem is that it's totally something believable. You've already lost the publicity war if news articles are making these claims against you.

I think we're about to see a full scale propaganda campaign in favor of intervening. We're going to see a lot more of these kind of accusations over the next few months.

Assad is a billionaire. All he has to do is say No Mas and he can go live in Dubai for the rest of his life. If he uses these weapons, I can tell you right now the Joint Chiefs will recommend that Obama kill him and his whole family.

Biological weapons release... it's not going to need any help from the media. NATO and US leadership will assault without much question.

He's wealthy but resolute and so far hasn't backed down. I don't foresee him coming out alive even if he does refrain from chemical attacks. I think the US is building up their case for intervention. Stories like this are helpful even if untrue.

Terrorists attacked the army, has a lot more details too

Obama has been incredibly aggressive at certain times. I'm not as concerned for his resolve as I am about the type of intervention that almost appears inevitable at this point...

Seven people have died in Homs after they inhaled a poisonous gas sprayed by government forces in a rebel-held neighbourhood

Sounds pretty Syrias
