Default NBC News: Syria is preparing Sarin Bombs

Wow this could get ugly.

Quote:
The Syrian military is prepared to use chemical weapons against its own people and is awaiting final orders from President Bashar Assad, U.S. officials told NBC News on Wednesday.
The military has loaded the precursor chemicals for sarin, a deadly nerve gas, into aerial bombs that could be dropped onto the Syrian people from dozens of fighter-bombers, the officials said.

As recently as Tuesday, officials had said there was as yet no evidence that the process of mixing the "precursor" chemicals had begun. But Wednesday, they said their worst fears had been confirmed: The nerve agents were locked and loaded inside the bombs.
Sarin is an extraordinarily lethal agent. Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's forces killed 5,000 Kurds with a single sarin attack on Halabja in 1988.

U.S. officials stressed that as of now, the sarin bombs hadn't been loaded onto planes and that Assad hadn't issued a final order to use them. But if he does, one of the officials said, "there's little the outside world can do to stop it."

This could bring us into the conflict.

Read about this the other day. Putin's comments on the matter are the most frightening to me personally.

Russia objects to Turkey's NATO request for the deployment of Patriot missiles as Mr Assad's regime clings to power and suppresses a rebellion.

Moscow has warned that such a deployment could spark a broader conflict, pulling in the Western military alliance.

I'm a big fan of that Chekov quote and at first I thought someone said that about Putin....which would not make any sense. However, I see that Putin said it.

However, the full quote doesn't appear to be threatening.
Quote:
“Creating additional capabilities on the border does not defuse the situation but on the contrary exacerbates it,” Putin said in a joint press conference with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan after talks in Istanbul on Monday.

“You know, as they say, if a gun is hung on the wall at the start of a play then at the end of the play it will definitely fire,” the Russian president stated.

“Why should we need extra shooting at the border? We are urging restraint.

Didn't Syria lose its Internet a couple days ago? Perhaps that was a test run for the Government cutting off the Internet after bombing their own people?

Wow I'm actually scared about this one. It could really lead to WW3. US to aid rebels and Russia to aid Syrian government.

Yes, but it's back up now.

Yes, it looks like they hit a killswitch on the internet which made people start thinking something was about to go down. Might have been a test run.

Apparently we have been working with the opposition for a while now, to have ways to circumvent just this scenario and set up backup communication system.

No ****. Thing is when you attack a country generally they will have at least a few buddies. It depends on who those buddies are as to whether or not it matters.
