Also the yakhont anti ship missiles but supposedly Israel destroyed these or some of these already when they bombed Syria (when they said they were preventing weapons being smuggled out)

If those defense weapons are in Syria and operational it'll be a tough one i imagine for US to step in the S300 anti air system is supposedly the best there is (granted there are newer systems)
But if they aren't yet maybe
Also Syrias defense system already is quite good so the answer? Who knows keke


Looks like the US might announce strikes right now guess they aren't deployed (well they're going to announce something switch on the news)

edit: guess nothing happened John Kerry just came out and gave a powerful statement and that they will be in consultations on what to do and there's no evidence that the Regime did this but their "common sense" says they did
but given the language sounds like they have to do something

They'll probably lob a few hundred cruise missiles into the country. Take out their Air Force and a few runways. The hardest part will be finding those AA sites, but I'm sure their satellites and drones already know where most of them are.

Side note UN Inspectors are in Syria trying to investigate the suspected sites but they're being attacked by snipers unknown from which side for certain (rebels i bet)

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-23843649

but since the Regime has allowed inspectors all the countries who were blaming Assad say its "too late"

BBC News - Syria crisis: UN complains after inspectors fired on

I'm sure the UN will send a harsh letter to Syria strongly denouncing their actions.

Anyways, I came across this following video. For anyone who thinks Assad and his men are monsters (because the media paints them as such), take a look at this video. It is extremely NSFW, especially at the 8:00 mark. These FSA rebels execute three truckers for simply being Alawites. Again, be warned, it's extremely NSFW.

yes the Alawites have a major target on them because Assad is one as well
the media actually tried to use Assad protecting Alawites as a negative (alawite sections of cities/towns are being targeted)

same thing happened in Libya where those from the same tribe as Gaddafi were wiped out

Ahh there are a lot of executions on both sides. Several videos you can see on LL. Both are ruthless, though the FSA is more the bumbling fool when it comes to actual engagements.

Interesting to see how America will strike at Syria, this is different situation than Iraq or Libya. A military response could bring in another war as Syria has the backing of Russia and China. It actually doesn't look too good for America on the international front as this time Syria is minding their own business and not pulling a North Korea move by threatening the world with nukes.

Assad brought stability to the country as much as people don't see it, and that is about to be thrown into chaos if outside forces do intervene.

Oh most certainly, but I find that the media doesn't really talk about the brutality of the rebels.

You have to wonder what military plan they have. Airstrikes? Boots on the ground? Might even turn out to be a bigger mess than Iraq and Afghanistan.

I really doubt the US will make any attempt to move forces on the ground. That will escalate tensions way too rapidly and Russia will not be happy about that. Most likely it will be couple missles here and there, possible air strikes (like in Libya), and aid through weapons.

all analysts that are spoken to on the news seem to feel airstrikes are unlikely either because of Syrias AA capabilities

the analysts seem to think lobbing missiles from the destroyers will be the only thing seen if even

Thanks for the articles... the very last paragraph of the article pretty much summs up what the conflict is all about:

"I'll be very blunt: An Iranian victory in Syria is a major strategic catastrophe from the point of view of Israel, and I think from a Western point of view generally," said Yaari. "In spite of the fact we have our doubts about the nature of the future regime in Syria, Israel's attitude is that the devil we don't know is preferable to the devil we know."

Israel is always at the centre of these conflicts. I wonder why.... And as soon as Israel cries for help, the US jumps. Just shows how much influence the jews have in the US government.

I actually think people in Isreal could be setup for false "Assad chemical attack" flag operations by the Zionist elite if it advances its global goals of world domination.

You only have to look a few decades back with America being the global nuclear watch dog, it used Isreal to destroy Saddam's nuclear electric plants... and this happended after Saddam was notorious for carrying out gas attacks killing over 200,000 people.

The false flag revelations of the terror attacks of the Jewish center in Argentina where 85 people were killed, 300 injured, is another example where people have been used for political reasons.


Breaking news, Obama concludes Assad behind chemical attack.

I would love to see concrete evidence on Assad actually using chemical weapons.

So far from what I gather, the only evidence the US has is that Syria has stockpiles of chemical weapons, the only question is who is using it? The rebels also have access to chemicals too.

It isn't too hard to send a drone or two and watch the action now right?

Turkey finds sarin gas in homes of suspected Syrian Islamists ? reports ? RT News

Quote:
The sarin gas was found in the homes of suspected Syrian Islamists detained in the southern provinces of Adana and Mersia following a search by Turkish police on Wednesday, reports say. The gas was allegedly going to be used to carry out an attack in the southern Turkish city of Adana.

On Monday, Turkish special anti-terror forces arrested 12 suspected members of the Al-Nusra Front, the Al-Qaeda affiliated group which has been dubbed "the most aggressive and successful arm” of the Syrian rebels. The group was designated a terrorist organization by the United States in December.
We also can't forget how America is also using chemicals in their wars, biggest hypocrites on this planet tbh. Uranium shells are banned in some countries and resolutions were rejected multiple times in the UN. America was one of the countries rejecting the ban.
