I don't know the validity of the news or if this has been posted before but I thought it was worth a mention

According to a commander of the Syrian Presidential Guard, at least seven Syrian soldiers were killed on Saturday after they were attacked by a chemical weapon which produced a toxic yellow gas.

The soldiers were reportedly killed within an hour after inhaling the gas.

Foreign-backed militants have repeatedly threatened to use chemical weapons against the army and pro-government civilians in recent days.

They have also threatened to contaminate Syria's drinking water supply in a bid to kill all Alawite Shias and the supporters of President Bashar al-Assad.

If this can be confirmed, then this whole thing just escalated.

Lemme see if I can find another source.

I would disagree. I just don't think he's gonna use them. There's been nothing more than biased reports saying Assad had a part in killing civilians. If he didn't then I doubt he'd use chems.

Exactly why the MSM isn't posting the story yet. They're probably waiting on the approved version. lol

I see where you are coming from but he is backed in a corner I don't think he will use them however this may become a viable option in the future If I was him I'd be prepping all troops with NBC gear and refrain from using them as the incident could have been a ploy for a justification of boots on ground intervention, but we don't know what will happen in the future it depends on the discipline of his forces to stay restrained from this option he isn't a stupid man if he was he wouldn't lasted as long as he has thats for sure.

I guess we could all assume and question but when it comes down to it anything could happen wether it will escalate shortly or not is another matter should be interesting to see what happens within this time till the patriot instalment and there after

This thread combined with the other thread covering interviews of Syrian forces and asking their opinion of the war makes me think the west has picked the wrong side to support. I'll take a secular gov over pro islam "freedom" fighters any day!

well it does make you think who is backing them and what they stand to gain out of it look at Iraq we tried installing a government that would be west friendly but we can see how that went but then you look to the Arab Spring and muslim brotherhood succession and their supporter fingers in pies

Is anybody else starting to get the feeling that the West would be better off with Assad in charge?

Touche, Obama Arab spring has flopped, we lost eygpt,libya and the middle east will be firmly in the hands of radical Islamists. Terrorism will soon be an everyday occurence.
