What took them so long?
Al Jazeera reported CLEAR BACK IN DECEMBER that chemical weapons had been turned loose and people had been killed after breathing a poisonous gas.
I Blogged about then and predicted Obama would stick his nose in that mess then too.
That was Christmas Eve, 2012.
Well, it looks like the shit hit the fan in Syria just in time for Christmas.
Seven people have died in Homs after they inhaled a poisonous gas sprayed by government forces in a rebel-held neighbourhood, activists said.
Activists also told Al Jazeera that scores of others were affected in al-Bayyada neighbourhood. Side effects reported include nausea, relaxed muscles, blurred vision, and breathing difficulties.
Residents said they did not know the nature of the gas sprayed.
“The situation is very difficult. We do not have enough facemasks. We don’t know what this gas is but medics are saying it’s something similar to Sarin gas,” Raji Rahmet Rabbou, an activist in Homs, told Al Jazeera.
Now Obammy is going to stick his nose into the hornets nest, you watch.
So what took so long?
That was six fucking months ago.
You know as well as I do that it didn’t take six months to confirm Chemical weapons were being deployed.
As for Obama sending weapons to
Al Quaida the Syrian Rebels, take a gander at what that enterprising bunch can do with the materials they have at hand.
This is just a sample, go read The Atlantic article I just linked to and see for yourself how clever these bastards are.
Here is a home made grenade launcher on a modified shotgun.
A home made mortar launcher.
A home made mini tank with a remote controlled machine gun.
The remote control is a fucking video game controller.
I think you get the idea.
These guys are dirt poor in a rat hole of a country.
Sending them weapons to even up the odds has worked so well for us in the past too, remember?
Afghanistan, Viet Nam, Iraq, Iran, El Salvador, Panama, the list is endless and it has historically always blown up in our faces.
Why should this be any different?
It won’t, I guarantee it.
