Let's not forget the perfect timing of all of this being that UN chemical weapons inspectors had just arrived days earlier before the attack.

One thing I don't understand...

Over 1000 human beings just lost their lives in a few minutes. Innocent men, women, and children.

And it seems the entire world could care less. The silence is deafening...

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THIS WORLD???


So very, very confused and sad about all of this.

that looks very staged.

none of them have a tinge like the Iraq kurds did in Hallabja
None of them have puffy faces
None of their legs are open and stiff.

dunno.. looks staged!

So far from different news sites and on its commenting sections no one is believing the rebels side. Since after the supposed attack yesterday night they are now spreading the dead images of the children as there means of propaganda.

Chemical weapons inspectors arrive a a few days earlier and this happens? How convenient!

Doesn't make any sense for Assad to do this when he already has the upper hand with recent successes eliminating CIA backed rats and pushing them back into their sewers.

What a coincidence that Israel's neighbors are burning. I guess by 2020 the Zion plan will be complete:

I think this is staged by the rebels . They are cruel ,they eat hearts. They waited inspectors to arrived and attacked.

The UN inspectors also have intelligence operatives. Perhaps they were warned of this attack.

Assad is a monster and I wouldn't discount him masterminding this attack.

Oh, so it was found out that the Islamists did it? I'm not surprised. Same thing probably happened in this case. The Islamic terrorists don't care who they kill in their attempts to take over Syria.

The dead children above are but a fractionof what really has been taking place there.

What do you expect when terrorist groups take up arms against the government? Do you think it would be any different in the USA? In 1982, when the Muslim Brotherhood mounted an armed rebellion against Assad's father, he put it down.

The Islamic terrorists have always been the instigators, then they hide among their own people, women and children. Same tactic they used in Iraq and Afghanistan.. Life has always been cheap in that part of the world, especially to Islamic terrorists.

Jean Pascal Zanders, an independent researcher who specialises in chemical and biological weapons and disarmament, said that in videos of the aftermath of the attacks, the hue of the victims' faces appeared to show many suffered from asphyxiation. However, he said the symptoms they exhibited were not consistent with mustard gas or the nerve agents VX or sarin. Mustard gas would cause blistering of the skin and discoloration, while the nerve agents would produce severe convulsions in the victims and also affect the paramedics treating them - neither of which was evident from the videos or reports.

"At the moment, I am not totally convinced because the people that are helping them are without any protective clothing and without any respirators,'' said Paula Vanninen, director of Verifin, the Finnish Institute for Verification of the Chemical Weapons Convention. "In a real case, they would also be contaminated and would also be having symptoms.'' John Hart, head of the Chemical and Biological Security Project at Stockholm International Peace Research Institute said he had not seen the telltale evidence in the eyes of the victims that would be compelling evidence of chemical weapons use. "Of the videos that I've seen for the last few hours, none of them show pinpoint pupils... this would indicate exposure to organophosphorus nerve agents,'' he said.



It is a tragedy regardless of what killed them..that so many children have died..however to say this was an attack by Assad's troops..would be premature. It's just as likely these kids were being secreted in a basement or similarly sealed shelter and a gas line broke. Their symptoms suggest as much.

Except that many adults were also killed in their beds in their own homes. How do you explain that?

About the same way the FSA terrorists were busted awhile back in Turkey with chemical weapons and intentions to use them on Turkish villages. I guess they decided not to try that approach again and hit closer to home.

Only one side here has a documented history of handling and testing weapons as well as being caught with them. Assad's selection could literally wipe out all life in that city with just a few warheads. EVERYONE dead. Why would he screw around with a penny ante little strike like this (by HIS scale of options vs. the rebels) and ONE use of Chemical weapons by him which is proven? Means he will never ,,ever...ever.. stop running IF he ever leaves Syria alive at all.

To use them is his own death sentence...and he knows it. So why? This didn't even accomplish anything. It was a straight terror attack...and the terrorists aren't among the Government troops in that fight.

After watching all the video's coming out.. I take it back.
This is real.

Youtube Links - graphic

So...this happens on the very next day after the arrival of UN team that is to investigate on Chemical weapons use?
Could it be anymore transparent that these events are being staged for emotional appeal to gain justification for invasion and open support of terrorism.
New video of discrepancies in the press release.



Also check this link out


These evidences show the massacre by terrorists in Syria and their struggle for making people to believe that Syrian Regime behind the massacre. You will see that the terrorists uploaded videos before the massacre(their so-called allegation of the time when Syrian Army attacked with chemical weapons).The news of so- called chemical wepaon attack by Syrian Regime was published by Al- Jazzera (blogs.aljazeera.com...) at 09: 28. Another pro- Syrian terrorists site:”Baath Regime used chemical weapons in East Ghouta, Damascus, Jobar, Ain Tarma, Zamalka, Western Ghouta, Muaddamiyah around 03: 30 am. The source said that the death toll may rise because the lack of equipments and medical sources… At the same time one of the well know pro-Syrian terrorists youtube account ‘SHAMSNN’ uploaded tens videos quickly between 03: 00 and 04: 00. MOST IMPORTANT evidence is that the uploading time is 20 August !!!BUT THEY ACCUSED SYRIAN REGIME FOR ATTACK ON 21 AUGUST!!!
