New Poison Gas Attack Claimed in Syria, but Has the Clock Run Out?

Is Assad’s mind so twisted that he used chemical weapons again? Or are the rebels equally twisted enough to gas Assad’s soldiers and then accuse the regime. And does it matter anymore?

Syrian rebels claimed on Thursday that the Assad regime has used poison gas again, this time dropping chemical bombs on the Jobar neighborhood of Damascus.

If Syrian President Bassar al-Assad indeed carried out another chemical weapon attack just as President Barack Obama pulled back at the brink of bombing his military bases, he is more devilish than the devil, which gets away with evil by manufacturing lies and then standing in the courtroom and challenging anyone to prove otherwise.

A report from the United Nations, due to come out on Monday, has been leaked and links Assad to last month’s chemical attack but does not directly accuse him.

The latest rebels’ claim of another attack may indeed be true, but their problem is that the rebels are as honest and adorable as Assad.

For all the atrocities of Assad and his goon squads during the three-year civil war, not to speak of the calmer days under his regime of kindness and torture, the rebels are a good match.

Videos smuggled out of Syria have showed rebels standing with rifles  over captured Syrian soldiers, who had clear marks of severe beatings. With the prisoners faces on the ground, a rebel commander and his goon squad killed the soldiers, one by one, with a bullet in the back of the head.

It is not beyond belief that rebels also have used chemical weapons, but the overwhelming evidence obtained by French and American official’s shows that Assad clearly is to blame.

What really is weird is that the world is outraged over the use of chemicals, which indeed can endanger the entire world, but has been sitting on its collective hands under its collective butts for two years while Assad’s’ jets bombed and starved civilians and rebels do, and while the rebels would have done the same if they could.

What started out as a romantic Arab Spring peaceful demonstration has turned into a barbaric war. On one side is Assad, correctly described by Pulitzer Prize winner Joel Brinkley as “the most dangerous man in the world,” and that was around the same time then- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was saying he is “reformer.”

On the other side are approximately 10 armies, each one easily classified in the category of “terrorists,” not the least of which is the Al Qaeda organization.

A United Nations panel, two years too late, has issued a report stating, “The perpetrators of these violations and crimes, on all sides, act in defiance of international law. They do not fear accountability. Referral to justice is imperative.”

The lack of leadership in the world makes one wonder if the 21st century of advanced technology is morally situated in the days before the Flood.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is just as guilty as Assad but gets off the hook just like a terrorist leader who sits comfortably at home while his worshippers send the peons to kills themselves and others.

The United States has blown its chance for true leadership time after time. It has been following events instead of leading them, refusing to get involved, only later to send humanitarian aid to the rebels.

It has refused to help the rebels, only later to give them logistical aid,

It has refused to send them weapons, but The Washington Post reported Thursday that the CIA has been funding shipments of weapons, not made in the USA, to Syria.

President Obama has repeatedly said he will not intervene in Syria unless chemical weapons are used. That red line was crossed long before last month’s chemical attack that killed more than 1,00 people. In fact, it was crossed half a dozen times, but Obama backed away because he wanted “positive proof.”

Last week he got his proof, but he blinked.

Now that chemical weapons allegedly have been used again, the world will get agitated again.

Clearly, if the United States and Russia let  chemical weapons be used, it could set the scene for as ghastly scene in the future in Israel, Turkey and anywhere else where the wind blows.

But even if the West attacks Syria, chemical weapons will remain. They cannot be bombed, because they would be released and cause a catastrophe. Assad obviously cannot be treated to hand them over, and who knows if the rebels and Hezbollah already don’t have chemical weapons?

The problem is the world has been too late for three years, and probably is too late again.

  1. I believe it was Assad, but to not be sure and not act means that it will happen again and again, perhaps even if there is action. So let it go? No.

  3. Gil Gilman says:

    This new attack is the result of a world with it's hands in its pocket, and in the pockets of everyone else.

  4. Benjamin Fox says:

    Get on the rebels, Assad has no agenda as he has left Christians alone, it is the rebels who murder, rape and hate and time the world woke up and could see obozo the illegal president from Kenya supports his bro's in their fight to rule the world, he needs to go and the world needs to wake up.

  5. How foolish can people be. Obamaba supports the radical islamist MB over Mubarak, and Al-CIA-DA over a sovereign leader Assad in Syria. He also supports the PLO. so the most obvious suspect for trying to fram Assad is Obamba and their Al-CIA-DA proxies, who I thought the USA was fighting in Afghanistan!

  6. Rose M. Loya says:

    BENJAMIN FOX: ARE YOU A NATIVE AMERICAN? IF NOT YOU ARE AN ILLEGAL. DON'T THROW STONES, O.K.

  7. Benjamin Fox says:

    I'm not a illegal born in America by American parents so what is your problem Rose? Don't get enough food stamps and handouts?

  8. God please help these poor people in Syria who have no place to run to.

  9. Benjamin Fox says:

    By the way Rose the so called native American came from Turkey when there was one world before God split it up so not native to anything but Turkey and a child of Noah, so if you mean to say American Indian, no problem as there are Indians all over the world, not a special class of people and many people have lost their lands to invaders so get off your high horse miss rose horse.
