Syria, with Iran's help, has WMD like VX gas and other such weapons. The US won't go in and attack because if they did the smoke and dust would produce toxic clouds that would kill the population. It looks like the Syrian regime is quite secure. No wonder the media does not want to touch this topic and keep going on and on about Iran.

CNN the liberal media does not ever stop talking about Syria so what you say is not true. Secondly who cares if syria has wmds so does israel why not invade there first?

My question would be, why was the US military so keen to go in and take out Saddam's supposed WMD's (of course, we all know now that they knew he didn't have any) but are NOT willing to take out WMD's held by Syira?

Using the reasoning that the USA has given the world for previous conflicts, the presence of WMDs should accelerate the need for any attack, not abate it.

I'll bold the parts I found interesting


Syria “has chemical weapons, and most experts believe it has mustard agents and at least ordinary nerve gas. It may have persistent nerve gas as well. It is believed to have cluster warheads for delivering chemical weapons, and it probably has chemical bombs and rocket warheads as well. It may have chemical artillery shells.”


Sounds to me like a lot of speculation with little evidence, what else could you expect out of the United States propaganda machine? More sabre rattling and drum beating!

So if the US attacked, they would be concerned with Syrias WMD that would take out their own populace?

I think they would welcome that. It would prove we were right in invading.

So it's okay for Israel to have WMD's and not Syria?


I'd be more afraid of nuclear weapons than mustard / nerve gas... But hey, that's just what makes sense to me.

You're complaining that the Liberal media won't mention Syria's WMDs, have FOX NEWS mentioned this then?

Usually, when people complain about the "Liberal media" they're FOX NEWS faithful.

All headlines like that tell me is that you
get all your news from rightwing media.
Which in turn, makes me distrust it as much
as you do "liberal media".

While it's certainly true that Syria has no 'hidden' Chemical Weapons program...it's 100% wide open for all to see...it's had this for many years. What baffles me is why the media focuses on the fact one exists?? It wasn't worthy to talk about in the past years while it was in full swing to build the stocks Syria has, so why should it matter so much now?

I'm just noting that we go ballistic after nations are found to have hidden WMD (or not), and everyone scrambles with half educated guesses and worst case fear mongering about what may or may not exist..and will it be used...and yaddah yaddah.

Well... No guessing needed. Syria hasn't tried to hide it beyond technical stuff NO nation makes public about their defense programs. If it wasn't worth a fuss about before the current setup to assassinate Assad, it sure isn't a justification now. Aside from that....

Assad isn't a raving lunatic and virtually NO nation would argue with killing him outright, by ANY means necessary, if he used Chemical Weapons on a large scale. So.. why worry? It's like Obama with Nukes. He has them, but will never use them and has all but told everyone this, so it's a totally moot point. In both examples.

Let me help you with your title

"The Real Threat The Liberal Media Won't Touch: Israel WMD"

The USA and France already have boots on the ground in Syria and the reason they have not gone in offical like to do the bidding of Israel is because Russia and China both said no.

Don't fear Syria and VX or mustard gas killing people in some far off land but do fear Iran who might not have any nukes to fend off the religious freaks in Israel but most likly have better biological weapons than the USA so go and smash the bees nest but don't go complaining when you get stung and saying you didn't know.

oh and did you not spot that Russian bear waiting to lick up the Honey
