Assad Army Discovers Syrian Rebels' Chemical Weapons Cache

Tyler Durden's picture

While it has become difficult to distinguish fact from fiction from mere propaganda when it comes to events in Syria, the general plot line is a simple one: "X/Y has chemical weapons so the ["free and democratic world"|Russia] has the moral authority to provide military assistance to Y/X."

Recently, it was the "free and democratic world" that decided that the general public has forgotten the epic Iraq WMD disinformation campaign, and ploughed into a decision to arm the Syrian rebels who are really nothing more than Qatar-funded mercenaries led by Al Qaeda, as it was finally ascertained (by someone, unclear who) that it was the Assad regime that had used chemical weapons.

Well, the "free and democratic world" may have some serious 'splaining to do if the latest news out of Syria is confirmed, namely that the the Syrian army has discovered rebels' storehouse in the Damascus area, where toxic chemical substances, including chlorine, have been produced and kept, State TV reported.


From RT:

Military sources reported that the militants "were preparing to fire mortars in the suburbs of the capital and were going to pack missiles with chemical warheads."


On July 7, the Syrian army confiscated “281 barrels filled with dangerous, hazardous chemical materials” that they found also found at a cache belonging to rebels in the city of Banias. The chemicals included monoethylene glycol and polyethylene glycol.


Syrian UN Ambassador Bashar Ja’afari said that the chemicals were “capable of destroying a whole city, if not the whole country."


On Monday chief UN chemical weapons investigator Ake Sellstrom and UN disarmament chief Angela Kane are expected in Damascus for talks following a Syrian government invitation.

Oh well, back to the propaganda drawing board. Only this time, now that the Zimmerman case is over, the public will quickly need some other major distraction to keep it occupied while the secondary propaganda track plays in the background.

More importantly, now that the Syrian rebels have "crossed the red line", we look forward to shipments of US weapons being UPS'ed (someone has to boost the imploding logistics company top line) to the rebels and the Assad regime at the same time. Hence: double the GDP boost.

Well..., I guess if Assad's military's commanders said it, it must be so.

Wow, that is really not scary at all.

Chlorine might be used to purify water.

Ethylene glycol is anti-freeze.

Polyethylene glycol is used as a laxative.

Leave it to me to be everyone's friend....

The chlorine was for the rebels' nice, new swimming pool ...

WMDs.  Wow!  Is this Kosher?

Does this make them part of the Axis of Evil, or does this imply that nuke creation is ok as long as their intended target is anyone other than Israel?  I'm being sarcastic of course, but it sure feels like that is the true definition of 'Axis of Evil'.

Israel also refuses to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treating, while at the same time, demanding that Iran not be permitted to develop nuclear power:

enough of Israeli hypocrisy.

uh, --- ethylene glycol is not a particularly hazordous or uncommon chemical.

It's used as base feed stock in everything from plastics to medicines.

thisandthat's picture

Pretty sure that depends on the way you use it...

Ethylene glycol is toxic, and ingestion can result in death

Now imagine they dump it into the water supply...

It is true, though.  The most efficient mass murder *is* the PINNACLE of evolution.

By definition.  And if you buy it - it is 100% justified, too.

War is about oppressing competitors. The MIC sees just about everyone else as competitors now.

 This is about tightening the noose around Iran, and keeping Russia out of the ME. Destroy the city and infrastructure  oust the leader then loan the new puppet government money which they know they will have trouble repaying. The new regime will enrich itself and do whatever is neccessary to keep their position and wealth. Part of the conditions for loaning that money is that they award major contracts to multinationals to rebuild their country. The country will have a booming economy until the money can't be repaid, then comes loan restructuring with conditions that they privatize nationally owned companies and resources. Maybe even a U.S. military base will be included. Sound familiar. Iraq, Afganistan, Libya ect..  No wonder Iran wants a nuclear weapon. Same old game.

>>both sides

Assad has no need of chemical weapons in this war.  His troops are winning with conventional weapons.  Chemical weapons have no use against infiltrator/mercenaries who infiltrate civilian areas, as opposed to massed troops.   In short, WMD is a total red herring used by the war mongers to justify invasions.  nothing more.

Oh no! Monoethylene glycol and chlorine! They might make polyester fabric and wash it! Or worse yet, they might make engine coolant! THE HORROR! It is the polyethylene glycol that REALLY scares me. That is often used in OVER THE COUNTER (read: SUPER DANGEROUS) laxatives. Imagine an entire city shitting uncontrollably. It's also used in toothpaste and skin cream. If those rebels starting looking too handsome, god only knows what could happen.

There are too many "events" taking place across the world that doesn't play well for the banksters and gangsters, they can't hide them all. The true nature of things is bursting through the cracks, it really is only a matter of time before so called power elite or high level political assholes are being chased through the streets for their cruel and immoral treatment of their fellow man.

Anyone want to bet me that the UN inspectors reveal that the chemical weapons were made in and recently supplied by USA?

The biggest threat to Democracy is Washington D.C. and Wall St. Bankers. They have militarized the US police and in effect are responsible for State sponsored terrorism against the citizens of the United States of America. Among many other things.
