Who ever gave the Order to fire the Bio-Weapon in Siria,
1,knew this would happen,,
2 question ,,,,why bio?
what Special Protocols are Released in a Bio Hazard Crisis, that could be used as a trap?

Of course there is a playbook/rulebook/scenario/book.

God, I wish we were still in the days of the stick and stones thing.

" Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me."

Nah, nah, na, nah, nah!

Where did those days go?

Everyone is troubled by it but sometimes there are no real alternatives.

We cannot simply stand back and let it happen, that would be as damaging to our presence on the world stage as just jumping in without any real proof of what had happened.

Obama "drew the line" at the use of chemical weapons and for many good reasons.

I tend to think the actual syrian rebels involved in this conflict wouldn't gas their own people as that is their families, their wives and children. They gain nothing by killing their own.

I can see Al-Qaeda doing it themselves, but i don't see the gain for them in it as it would turn the people of Syria against them and only encourage the US to start drone striking them in another country. This would eventually lead to us going there anyway.

If Assad is innocent, then his best bet is to allow the investigation to happen. He isn't. That tends to speak of guilt more then anything else.

LOL
You mean when everyone was told that "duck and cover" would protect them from a nuclear strike?
Let's just be glad that never happened, we would all be Russian if it had.

Their is a big difference between knowing the repercussions and simply not giving a damn cause you want to win the war you are fighting.

Ha, ha! How 'bout Relivio! Or maybe Hide and Seek.... before there were video games or "smart" phones.

When we actually went out to play in the evenings...

Oy, vey, this world is truly a mess.

Mods, sorry if this is a bit off topic.

Nah, just Florida


But the fallout among our own people would have been intense. I could easily foresee that kind of crap leading America to turn against its government who knew from the start that 'duck and cover' would be about as effective as wishing on a star.

"win the war you are fighting",, i understand that to the Nth Degree,, i dare say even the Lord of Host's and the God of War,,
but Biological,, ever since the Kaiser fired 1800 Shells of the newest advancement in warfare,,Sarin Gas,,in 1914,, against,,the Poles/Slavs,,the ENTIRE World, agreed,, that mankind must never sink too such incarnately evil, a weapon,,ever!
If this is humanity at its best,,count me out.

Which is why the UN needs to get in there and why Syria is preventing them from doing so. It will be very easy for the inspectors to tell who fired the missiles and Assad knows that if they can prove it was him then it is all over for his regime.

BUT, and i hate to say it.

If they can prove it was Al-Qaeda and that the CIA was somehow involved then it will be a whole other # storm and one we don't want.

It won't be long before we know for sure, and even then there will always be those who point the other direction.

i fervently believe this is just a trigger.
performed by the so called rebels to discredit the Syrian regime
out side help is needed..help was given
we need a door..we need an "in"
poison gas is perfect

Syria is not Libya, very dense air defense systems
Russia and China won't keep quiet if Syria is attacked
Russia, China and allies will ship all sorts of weapons to Syria
Iran will jump into war, attack Israel, create oil shipping problems and attack US in Afghanistan
Oil and Commodity prices will skyrocket

Main consequences:

Shaky US economic recovery will be derailed
US might not be able to pull forces from Afghanistan by 2014

25% chances of WW III coming to theater near your favorite shopping mall !!

Maybe this will change your mind.
BBC

While Syria's possession of chemical weapons has never been in any doubt, there is no reliable information on how it obtained and developed its arsenal.

The country has not signed the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) nor ratified the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC), so it has never made a formal declaration of its stock.

Syrian officials have admitted to stockpiling chemical weapons, though they say they will never use them against their own people.

unlike Iraq and Aghanistan, you might NEVER find an "out"

They're too busy choking and dying.

Comes a time you gotta stand up and say that's not right, and if I have the means to stop it I will.
Because of the al qaeda mercenaries sent over by Obama and Hillary from Libya, and are on the US payroll, picking up the gas ingredients from Saudi Arabia, and gassing non-rebel civilian women and children.

If Assad was going to "gas" anyone, he would have been gassing the militants, and he would have had some serious gas like sarin, which the "rebels" didn't have.

The US defense department and the pentagon ALWAYS has plans for any possible scenario of world events. Whether it be for war or for peace. This is common knowledge.

RT is a propaganda outlet that serves to stir up anger against the west and the US in general
