Well, some very interesting discussion and such going on in this thread. I am learning a lot from it. Thanks to all the members practicing healthy debate. It also think it the timing of this press release is curious.


I believe the timing directly coincides with Syria actually confirming they do posses chemical weapons. Seeing back during the war Syria actually denied they had any.




Facing a hail of accusations by Washington that he has weapons of mass destruction and is sheltering Iraqi leaders, Syria's president has held talks with a British envoy.
Bashar Assad's Foreign Ministry flatly denied the American charges.
"Of course Syria has no chemical weapons. They (Americans) have been talking for years about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. But so far, the presence of these weapons has not been confirmed," said ministry spokeswoman Bouthayna Shaaban.
"I would like to say that there are biological, chemical and nuclear weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East region. They are in Israel, not in Syria," she said .



Syria denied it had chemical weapons

So for all of you now Syria lovers who think the west is using propaganda and spreading lies about what is going on there, why would you believe Syria when they seem to be the ones who are lying.

Instead of telling us (the Americans) about these type of things on the news, CNN would rather distract us with the "Olympics" and other pointless bull# that really doesn't matter. The news is here to program us and keep us distracted from what we really need to know.

BANG BANG BANG go the drums of war.

It is all propaganda. I can't believe the number of people who are bringing up Bush to say, "Oh yeah, see, he knew what he was doing".

Bush supporters who helped brow beat this nation into an aggressive patriotic war are now Bush apologists starting the same rhetoric to brow beat us into another aggressive patriotic war?

Aren't all of you ashamed of yourselves enough already?

Bush lied us into war with Iraq. We were lied into Vietnam. We were lead by the nose by the media and politicians into Afghanistan because of 9-11, (We were attacked by Saudi Arabians) and we are going to be lied into war again.

You could very well be right.. I certainly don't claim that I am, sometimes I just channel my inner "Jerry Fletcher" and try to make sense or reason from all of the pieces of this global puzzle.

I always seem to come up a few pieces short

Bush vindicated huh? Well who do you think designed and sold those chemical weapons to Saddam? Bush senior and Reagan admins, which unfortunately means, we did.


Want to try agian?

During the gulf war gas masks and scud launchers all Russian made.

To the op people have been saying Saddam moved his WMDs to Syria for years it was just easier for people to not research like how Russian special forces where in Iraq during the lead up to the war and moved them to Syria where Russia current;y has special forces on the ground and has for years.

Russia sells on the open market just like America does. Russia has a naval base in Syria so what can't they have Spetsnaz there especially during the rebel uprising? Funny how you choose to overlook these obvious facts.

This goes hand in hand with the many reports submitted to the US and UN in the lead up of the Iraq war invasion, that Russian Special Ops Troops were Semi-Trucking out of Baghdad massive amounts of material into Syria. Some 14 to 18 months of material shipments.

If true Terrorists get a hold of any part of these stockpiles expect the entire middle east region to all be war with each other soon.

Here's a recent lengthy article that seems to fit nicely within this thread..


Insight: Assad chemical weapons plans blocked by Moscow

Increasingly under pressure by rebels intent on unseating him, Bashar al-Assad has considered using chemical weapons against his enemies but Washington and Moscow have formed an unlikely alliance to force him to abandon such plans.

Analysts and diplomats across the region and beyond do not doubt that the Assad government, recoiling from a devastating attack on its security establishment last week and struggling to contain rebel offensives across Syria, is capable of using agents such as Sarin gas if its survival is at stake.

Historical revision is hard when you have the internet to refute your lies.

I am watching the video, the audio is terrible. I am trying to figure out why you call my post lies and then post a video about Hillary Clinton. I will try to understand what you are implying by watching the video since you provided no useful information.

Since you only make a vague statement about lies exactly which statement did I make do you find to be false?

You blamed bush and his supports for "brow beating" america in to going to war. that's a lie based on political spin by Democrats and their media. The truth is that not only did Hillary build support for the war, but many other Democrats did as well. In fact, Bush argument was EXACTLY the same as Clinton and other Democrats who were making the case before W ever took office.

Your simplistic political spin is lies and revisionist history.

Okay, so you wasted 16 minutes of my life on a terrible video of Hillary Clinton explaining why the US needs to disarm Saddam Hussein.

So what? This video provides no information in regards to my post.

You Sir, have been labeled a Troll.

- From the Toll Handbook -

Page 1 - Call someone a liar and provide no information of support (Hit and Run Tactic)

Page 2 - Post something meaningless to distract from the previous posters message to try and change the topic of conversation.

Back to your bridge, Troll.


Lots of insults usually means you know you're wrong and have nothing to retort with. Classic butt hurt reply with zero substance. Why don't you go back to the school play ground where your level of discourse is most commonly practiced?

This is gona sound weird, and I don't know if someone could of guessed it at the time...

But there is a local Pastor thats on the local christian radio station.

And I remember clearly that back when we first started the Iraq war that he was claiming that he had "talked" to members of his Church that where in the "intelligence" community.

Keep in mind this was just before the invasion started, I remember him claiming that there would be no WMD's in Iraq.

Because they where "shipped" to Syria...

This was years ago.

His name is Jack Hibbs, and hes from Calvery Chapel Chino hills...

Im going to go see if I can find when he said that and if theirs audio recording of it.

Bush did browbeat this country into war.

Because Hillary was also a supporter does not mean Bush did not brow beat this country into war, as did all his cabinet members, the media, democrats, on and on. This doesn't make my statement false.

- Another troll tactic. Bring up another another person/entities wrong doing (in this case you used Hillary Clinton) to try and lessen the impact of the previous statement.

All i can say that in mid 90s in military in basic training we were told that Syria has chemical weapons ,even what general types of chemical weapons they have.
Maybe they got Iraqi stuff too. And maybe not.

Well for me the whole Iraqi WMD program question is a moot point. Nobody will ever change their minds one way or the other.

The real question should be in my mind is just how much does Syria have?

Not that this is {as has been the custom in these types of threads} a typical topic where people accusing those who wish to simply discuss the topic in a frank and open manner of being Warmongering and or advocating an attack on said country.

That type of waffling deflection from the topic get's a bit old IMO.

Truthfuly, WMDs do not include Chemical weapons...thats a new twist they put on it, but it wasnt so in the past....
Chemica weapons are at best very localised things....yes they can kill people, but not destroy infrastructure....
But Chem weapons have ONLY recently been included as WMDs to broaden the fear factor and to dupe the public about the threat.

Syria's Chemical Weapons from Saddam's Iraq

Bush could be vindicated soon when it comes to light that many of the chemical weapons Syria holds are actually from Saddam's Iraq. Of course if this comes to light, it could call into question many conspiracy threads posted here, such as all the 9/11 threads and many of the false flag thread.


I am really disappointed to see people fall for same trick.

It is the most stupid.

It could be like , Bush could have said ,"OBL is running to Pakistan"

Sheeples would say "let's invade Pakistan"

The other day Bush could say ," Sorry , OBL was running to India"

Sheeples would say "let's invade Pakistan"

The other day Bush could say ," Sorry , OBL was running to Iran"

Sheeples would say "let's invade Pakistan"

The other day Bush could say ," Sorry , OBL was running to Turkmenistan"

Sheeple still supporting and following. No wonder.

Same trick? What are you talking about? Syria claimed it didn't have Chemical Weapons some years back and now they are telling us they do. Apparently, many of those weapons they have stockpiled are in fact from Iraq, so I am not sure what trick you are talking about unless Syria is trying to trick us into invading by lying about having these weapons!

Well, first I was way to lazy to read the whole thread so forgive me if this was stated already, but.... why don't we heed the advice of the founders and just stay out of everyone's business? It looks like what happened here is called....how does Dr. Paul put it...blowback?........I'm not surprised at all.
