It is terrible. But who is responsible? Is it government troops or not? UN inspectors are not being allowed into the area immediately - giving them time to clear up any evidence? Who knows? You'd think the government would get them in to prove it wasn't them, but no.

Dreadful images. Apparently the UN inspectors are only 10 minutes away as well.

Shocking to think that human life is still so cheap in some parts of the world.

Very sad! Even more so is if it's shown it was the government that did this and the UN mandates their removal any NATO action will no doubt result in the loss of far more lives than have been lost here. Rock and a hard place.

Just to expand slightly....

back in january, documents leaked by wiki leaks show signed papers from the obama administration allowing chemicals to be used by the US on syrian civilians, that could be blamed on Assad as a premise for invasion in the same way they did with Iraq.

Iraq caused such a shit storm due to them finding no weapons that this time they had to go through with the deed.


fuck the western media.

Stop reading it, you've given them the reaction they wanted.

most likely the americans will come out and say the weapons of mass destruction are originally from iran, now lets go and invade .... few oil fields to obtain over there i believe.

They have priors with false flag operations too... I dont think Assad could be that stupid launching a chemical attack against his on peoples right on the doorstep of UN Officials who have just arrived to look for said weapons...
The Americans might have given it to the rebels and told them to launch it to make it look like Assad either... Or the Rebels just got them themselves with this intention...

Some people online think this will trigger another world war because it will spread to Turkey and as Turkey is close to Russia and Europe things will get out of control...

No, for whatever side, whoever is dying, the whole thing is a mess. No one can deny that. It is a war torn country. Conspiracies aside, there is death and real suffering over there. It isn't a film, it isn't made up!

I've just come back from Cambodia. I met a man there whose family was killed by the Khmer Rouge and as a 13 year old boy was forced to fight for them just to get enough food to survive. He was shot 8 times during the war and had one leg blown off by a land mine.

Sorry for the tone but it's very upsetting to see what these c**ts to do normal people to advance their ends. Anyone who leads a war, regardless of their flag, should be fed to the lions.

It's good to see the French getting on board this time. They've obviously learned their lesson from the war against Iraq.

Here is an interesting article on the Syrian troubles and what has happened this week:

.........................................................................
Syria A step too far

“WE HAVE been very clear to the Assad regime…that a red line for us is [if] we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized” said Barack Obama a year ago this week. “That would change my calculus.” If reports from the Syrian opposition that hundreds of people have been killed by rocket-launched chemical weapons (see article) turn out to be true, then Mr Obama should keep his promise.

In recent months, those who previously argued for intervention in Syria have gone quiet. That’s not because the Syrian people are suffering any less—far from it. The death toll is now reckoned to be more than 100,000, 2m people have fled the country and a quarter of the population of 23m is reckoned to be displaced within it. But failure to intervene early has had consequences which strengthen the arguments against intervention. Sectarian chaos in the country has grown, undermining hopes that toppling Mr Assad would bring peace. The more fighting there is between rebel groups, the more damage giving them weapons would do. And al-Qaeda-linked rebel groups have gained strength at the expense of the more moderate ones the West would be happy to see take power. The stronger the radicals become, the weaker the case for arming the rebels.

False flag propoganda, Im not buying it for a minute.
So no one is dying then?
I feel much better now.
Nope thousands are dying and some people are being fooled into thinking our fantastic leaders have those peoples best interests at heart and are going to displace this tyrannical regime and save the day, yay!!!!

when in fact the west and their clandestine empire is the cause of this.

The large corporations that make trillions from war, own the media, and therefore decide what is written and placed on our ears.

You do realise the UK and US governments want to sell weapons to 'rebels' - could you imagine the syrian government selling weapons to the yobs who rioted in 2010? - that's all that's going on here.

What the fuck has their country got to do with us - nothing, except theres oil under it and we want just a little bit more.

Nobody seems to give a shit about the congo, or liberia or Bahrain.....way worse shit is going down over there, but its not profitable enough for our caring leaders to get involved and 'change the world'
