Did Syria Finally Use Poison Gas Against Syrian Rebels?

File this one under the heading of “Who knows”. Both sides have been accusing each other of using poison gas for weeks now, and the Muslim Brotherhood militias have everything to gain from faking another such attack. That doesn’t mean it didn’t happen, because Assad now has more incentive than ever to use poison gas to regain domestic confidence after Russia’s Vladimir Putin began backing away from him.

Until there is some kind of independent confirmation, even of the shoddily biased kind from some international NGO, there really isn’t much to talk about.

But we do know one local country that did use poison gas. And I’m not talking about Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, but the country that we are dispatching Patriot missiles to defend. Turkey.

German experts have confirmed the authenticity of photographs that purport to show PKK fighters killed by chemical weapons. The evidence puts increasing pressure on the Turkish government, which has long been suspected of using such weapons against Kurdish rebels. German politicians are demanding an investigation.

It would be difficult to exceed the horror shown in the photos, which feature burned, maimed and scorched body parts. The victims are scarcely even recognizable as human beings.

This was fairly recent and it was not the first time Turkey had been accused of gassing Kurds. But Turkey is an Islamist terror state that is our ally. Syria is a terror state that is our enemy. So off we go to defend Turkey from the consequences of a regime change operation that it started.

    Strange as it seems when George Bush claimed Islam was a religion of peace, that took
    in all of the Middle Eastern Nations and with everything done in the Oval Office since
    then absolutely nothing indicates any peacefulness. Horrific conduct and how it is viewed
    can depend on political affilliation, murder, rape, sodomy, mutilation by Egypts new
    oversears the Muslim Brotherhood is OK but Bashar Assad not so OK. In Lybia the
    gruesome crews of Jihad, Al Qaeda and Talliban and Muslim Brotherhood who could
    give a flip for what Obama wants are moving ahead in their violent attacks against
    Bashar Assad who will respond with more violence, I wonder if this gives George Bush
    a headache or the present miserable administration, no not at all, just go with the flow
    and pronounce ever who is alive tomorrow your friend, great policy work. Maybe those
    people out of work making twinkies could take over and at least sweaten things up a bit.

      Assad is not ok to extremists and Barry -O because he defended minority muslim sects and Christians from muslim fanatics.Sometimes he was forced to kill the Islamists before they murdered thousands .

      That makes him a criminal by fanatical muslims and Obamas standards .

    There has been upto now 18 cases related to some chemical.nerve agent(s). SAMS (Syrian-American Medical Assn) who have spoken to eyewitnesses are of the opinion (not yet proved in any lab tests) that the WHITE SMOKE released from bombs is 'Agent 15'. Victims have immediate effects of the gas- shortness of breath,loss of vision,inability to speak,dizziness,nausea,paralysis. Real complication compounded when Atropine (antidote for nerve gas)given -forming a toxic combination leading to death. Antidote for 'Agent 15' is Physotigmine (Eserine,Antilirium). Of note- 1998 British Def.Min. accused Saddam Hussein's Iraq of stockpiling 'Agent 15' .

    Surprising to read this at FrontPageMag.com. I strongly suggest David Horowitz get in touch with Pavel Stroilov for his take on what's really going on in Syria:

    I personally believe the 'Arab Winter' that emanating from the 'Arab Spring" is Moscow's handiwork. Exactly how, I don't know, but Pavel Stroilov, author of the newly released book, "Behind The Desert Storm", would likely offer a profound opinion or two.

    Merry Christmas!

    As far as I am concerned let ole Assad gas his own, the more these bloody savages kill each other the less they turn their attentions on us. If we were smart, we would encourage the Kurds to go independent and arm them to the teeth and sit back with a cocktail and watch the fireworks.
