    Sounds like another Iraq/Kuwait 'Incubator' War propaganda scam to me. What do you think?


    Opposition figures claim government stockpiling chemical weapons and distributing gas masks to soldiers near Homs; 130 people reportedly killed on Thursday as government intensifies crackdown.

    Syria's military has begun stockpiling chemical weapons and equipping its soldiers with gas masks near the city of Homs, opposition sources reported on Thursday.

    Opposition activists said they had received reports that the Syrian army had transferred a significant quantity of grenades and mortars containing chemical agents to a school building in Homs.

    The opposition also reported that gas masks were being distributed to soldiers at roadblocks.

    Homs has become the focal point of violent confrontations between insurgents and the country's military in recent days, and opposition figures are concerned that the moves could signal the regime's intention to use chemical weapons against its citizens.

    News agencies reported over 130 killed in Syria on Thursday, as Bashar Assad's government intensified its crackdown on an expanding uprising against his regime.

    Red line: Obama cautious on Syria chemical weapons
    April 26, 2013 WASHINGTON (AP) -- Proceeding cautiously, President Barack Obama insisted on Friday that any use of chemical weapons by Syria would change his "calculus" about U.S. military involvement in the 2-year-old civil war - but said too little was known about a pair of likely sarin attacks to order aggressive action now.

    US has a range of military options in Syria
    April 26, 2013 - U.S. commanders have laid out a range of possible options for military involvement in Syria, but they have made it clear that any action would likely be either with NATO backing or with a coalition of nations similar to the NATO-led overthrow of Libyan dictator Col. Moammar Gadhafi in 2011.

    War Propaganda at its worst. We shouldn't be handing these 'Rebels' any Tax Dollars or weapons. Especially, it being well-known these groups are infested with Al Qaeda terrorists. We're committing the same blunder in Libya & Egypt. Just repeating a tragic history. Blowback will be blowing our way at some point. Bet on that.
