THE United States dramatically toughened its line on Syria, accusing it of using chemical weapons and promising military aid to the opposition, as regime forces battle rebels in Aleppo city. President Barack Obama's administration announced on Thursday it had conducted a review of intelligence reports and concluded that Syrian regime forces had used banned arms, including sarin nerve gas, in attacks that killed up to 150 people.
OPERATION Northern Storm, a "harsh and swift" Syrian military campaign to retake the northern city of Aleppo from rebels, is expected to begin in the next few days, a Western diplomat said yesterday.
Syrian forces have been ordered to start an attack on the key rebel bastion on Sunday or Monday and will begin choking off supply routes this weekend, according to regime insiders and regional experts.
What Carney conveyed on behalf of the president was that while stopping the battle for Aleppo was crucially important in terms of the Syrian war, intervention was not in the interests of the United States.

Yes, it's such a coincidence isn't it!
Assad looks to be in 'danger' of putting down the terrorists attacking his country and people, and 'poof' all of a sudden there's a juicy excuse presenting itself literally on the eve of THE decisive campaign that will put and end to the manufactured 'rebellion'.
The US and UK plotters know that if Assad takes the stronghold, their chances of using a tamed Syria as a stepping stone to Iran disolves overnight..so magically, even though Assad and his army has absolutely ZERO reason to use CW when he has conventional arms a plenty, and is clearly capable of taking care of murdering terrorists (as he's almost won) and about to deliver them their marching orders..we hear that the US suddenly accuses him of using them!
As i say, what an opportune coincidence for the West eh?
Same as 9/11 and Osama Bin Laden was an opportunity to attack Afghanistan, except Bin Laden was NEVER wanted for 9/11, contrary to the US repeating he was responsible for it.
Same as Iraq, and the sexed up dossier claiming the UK would be hit by Iraqi WMDs such as nukes and CW with just 40 minutes warning...strangely, none were ever found, and no evidence was found they had ever existed...the report or 'sexed up dossier' was based on a decade old high school thesis for crying out loud!
Same as Libya, and the 'monster ghadaffi' commiting genocide against his own people...or..was he?
Turns out, the Libyan people were given far more from the Libyan state under Ghadaffi, than any of the citizens get in the West...virtually free fuel and energy, 50% state contribution to buying a home, free education and University places, free healthcare, a state contribution or gift when Libyans got married and the list went on.
Not such a monster after all then. The banks set up shop in Libya before Ghadaffis body was even cold, so not a total loss then!
And now we have Syria...are we noticing a pattern..yet?
