Why would the rebels declare openly that they have captured Chemical weapons if they were planning to use them in some sort of secret False Flag operation to provoke the West into direct confrontation?

That's the main question that makes me believe they wouldn't.

It would be much easier to replicate a Syrian missile, with a Syrian payload and simulate an attack - a true false flag operation - than to give that job to the FSA, who by all accounts, aren't famous for keeping secrets or being soft in their actions.

Not only that, but they would leave fingerprints (not literally) on the missiles used in such operation, which could make the attempt backfire.

The more I read these types of scenarios the more I question who is putting out this Bull and why? One could argue that Assad and his supporters are grasping at straws here.

Going back to the question of "why?", the FSA could be praising this to push their own agenda. International debate has been highlighting the importance of securing those weapons, fearing a possible attack in which they would be deployed.

The FSA getting them under control could be a high-card to be played to gain international credibility. Not that they need it much, because France has already stated they will support and recognize a new government if the rebels decide to form it...

But they might want to play the role of heroes.

That, or those special forces from the UK and other nations are already working with local rebel groups against Assad's plans.

I guess only time will tell.....


And let's not forget, that it appears the missiles were empty, or at least aimed at alternative warheads.

If they were empty, that means the warheads are still missing. Almost like a James Bond movie. lol

I know what the title states but, have you actually read the article?

Yes .. it is full of bullcrap like all other articles
but they didnt had time to reajust the title or what ?

why saying in the title that the rebel now control chemical weapons
but then try to downplay it that they are just empty missile that can be loaded with chemical

they are becoming less focus .. making mistakes when reporting their false news
something is in the air

the truth is coming out all by itself
that they will soon do a chemical attack and accuse Assad with it
like the houla massacre but in worst

So your saying the article is a lie but not the title? You must be really desperate to blame something on Israel.

This seems to me like a strtaight up CYA (Cover You @ss) move by the "Syrian Supreme Council" so that when the Syrian gov't gases their citizens they can say "we told you guys the rebels took the weapons". Whatever.

Yea, very predictable huh? Its like the plot to a really bad porno.....kinda makes you wonder why they're saying anything at all.....i'd rather watch straight action with no talking.

But, I like my sex/war like i like my basketball, one on one and with as little dribbling as possible.

Didn't Netanyahu say he was going to attack Iran before the US election? I still think Russia and China have more of a stake in having Syria as a economic pass-through, and are going to let those "crazy muslims" kill themselves off as much as possible, before rumbling in and taking over. That includes Iran.

We haven't heard much about Pakistan lately. I bet they aren't anymore stable than they have ever been and I believe the Chinese are working there.

There is a big difference between the truth and the lie
the lies never make sense and the truth always prevail

i dont have any agenda compare to anyone here spreading disinfo
and the ones supporting Romney and Obama
my only agenda is the truth .. you want the truth ?
then dont listen to the TV .. correction .. you can listen to the TV
but dont trust it .. its all crap

Russia and China vow to protect Syria from becoming another Libya

Dangerous Game: 'US almost daring Tehran to Strike First'

Hidden US-Israeli Military Agenda: "Break Syria into Pieces"

The Snake Behind the Arab Spring

Syria conflict: West 'blackmailing' Russia on sanctions

Ron Paul is the truth and he really care more about each American
then all democrat and republican combined and by far

The truth -->

they are beyond cheating .. they have done the maximum to descredit Ron Paul
you see how liars are scared from the truth
they really really live in fear of being exposed by a truthers

and Wolf quickly say .. we have "unfortunatly" lost the communication sorry for that
shortly after the soldier started speaking about "to stop picking war with other countries"

Dana Bash and Gloria Borger what do they have in common ?
many things and many lies and big hypocrites

Gloria Borger best trolling moment

Dana Bash best trolling moment

if the news are riggued.. then the election are rigged
then the terrorist attack are riggued .. then the wars are riggued

what does it mean for the USA ?
we have been compromised
the enemy has penetrated many branch and many official position

and why do they keep having David Gergen debating with Dana and Gloria and nobody else
because he is a good liars and hypocrite to ? of course he is
only his people can interview him

looks what happen when he is caught

You want to know what really happening in Syria .. stop trusting the news
its hard to believe .. but Gaddafi and Assad are really saying the truth

Well whatever the case may be, I just hope those people know how to handle Blister and V Nerve agent, You don't want to be around went a canister breaks or goes off trying to load one on a warhead and judging from the article, it looks like the chemical weapons are not pre-loaded on to them. Alot of those people are not educated on handling those dangerous chemicals, when to safeguard an decon when needed....
