Guess where Syria's chemical weapons originate?

Guess where Syria's chemical weapons originate?

General sounds alarm on nation gassing rebels, civilians


Published: 19 hours ago
Retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely says he has confirmation
that Syrian forces have used chemical weapons against rebel forces and
civilians, and those weapons are likely stockpiles received from Iraq
prior to the U.S.-led invasion 10 years ago.

Vallely has met twice in the region with military commanders for the
Free Syrian Army, which he describes as the largest and much more
moderate faction among the rebels, which also include elements of
al-Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood. He also gets regular reports from a
Canadian medical team. Vallely told WND that team is certain that a
chlorine gas weapon was used in recent strikes.

“From what I received from the Canadian medical team who works out of
Aleppo is that is was chlorine and that what you saw were the reactions
on those videos that were put out within the last week,” Vallely said.
“The chlorine, the choking, the skin, depending on the density of the
chlorine will cause skin irritation. If it’s mixed with other types of
gases too, then it could have an even more enhanced effect on the human
body, not only breathing but on the skin.”

Vallely believes the chemical weapons are clearly the work of the
Assad regime and that the regime will try to pin the blame on the
rebels. He said this is not the first time that the beleaguered
government has turned WMD on its own people and that he has evidence of a
similar attack last summer.

“We had photos and pictures of that which I provided the Defense
Department as well as other people in our intelligence organizations,”
he said.

But Vallely’s more stunning revelation is that he is virtually
certain that Syria is in possession of Saddam Hussein’s old arsenal of
weapons of mass destruction and some of those may be on display in this
civil war.

“If you go back to January through March of 2003, we had intelligence
in the Defense Department that the Russians helped move, by convoy, a
lot of the chemical and biological weapons into two locations in Syria
and one in the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon,” Vallely said. “We think Russia
and Iran have enhanced their inventory. The vast majority of those
chemical and biological weapons were from Iraq.”

The general said he is 95 percent sure Iraq’s stockpiles are in
and there is additional evidence of that which never came to
light in the previous administration.

“After the takedown of Saddam in 2003, there was a big survey done by
U.S. forces all throughout Iraq. Basically, as far as I know, all of
the bio and chemical weapons had been moved.
They found semblance of a
growing nuclear development program, but it was not an aggressive
program by any means,” Vallely said. “So the fact is that he had them,
used them on his own people.
He knew he had to get them out of there,
and there was a big cover-up and deception in how he moved them over
there. We did know about them, but the Bush administration never came
forth and explained to the American people that situation.”

Vallely said the arsenal now in Syria’s possession most likely
includes Serrin and VX nerve gas in addition to chlorine, and the likely
shelf life of the weapons means they would still be usable. He said the
range of a chlorine gas strike depends largely upon how the weapon is

“It depends on the warhead or whether it’s dispersed in canisters and
sprayed on the ground, much like they do with tear gas. So, it can
range all the way from a tank hanging off an aircraft, which would be a
fairly big load that could cover several miles. By artillery, you’re
probably talking about the same thing (as) with rockets and missiles.
The close-in stuff, you’re talking 100-200 yards,” Vallely said.

There are also reports of secret arms shipments flowing into the
region to help topple the Assad regime. During the investigation of the
terrorist attack in Benghazi, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., questioned
then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about weapons from the Ghaddafi
regime in Libya being smuggled to the Syrian rebels through Turkey.
Vallely was less certain about reports of weapons being moved in to help
the rebels.

“We have a high degree of confidence that there were gun systems,
particularly shoulder-fired missiles.
Ghaddafi had a tremendous
inventory of weapons – machine guns, rifles, pistols, ammunition,”
Vallely said. “I believe, from I have received so far, that there was
something there going on and supplying those weapons up to Syria. Where
they ended up, I don’t know.”

Despite the use of chemical weapons, Vallely still believes Bashar
Assad will fall within months, based on continued defections from the
Syrian Army and the dwindling amount of territory still in government


What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them

I do not doubt this information one iota. I only regret it is not more widely publicized and I am sorry this info was not more readily verified 6 or so years ago. There was never any doubt in my mind, or in many other thinking minds, at the time that the WMD's were transferred to Syria. Hussein thumbed his nose at the 20 plus UN sanctions and would only allow them into certain areas for inspection. IMHO, Bush and Blair were right. I'm just sorry that so many Americans lost their lives and limbs in the war but a lot was accomplished when Hussein was toppled, again imho.
