WAY back at the start of the 2nd Gulf War, the supposed reason for going after Saddam was twofold.  One reason was that Iraq was supposed to have been involved in 9/11.  The other was that Iraq had WMDs, and we were afraid he might use them against us and / or Israel.

News reports went back and forth on finding, not finding and even stated that they never had any chemical weapons to start with.  [try telling that to the Kurds]  But a few reports had Saddam moving HIS stockpile, one of the largest in the world, across Iraq and into Syria.  A country to whom the Russians said they had provided only small amounts' of WMDs.

Well NOW the Syrians are the holders of one of the largest stockpiles of chem weapons on the planet, according to London's, Mail Online edition.

Syria has started to move part of its chemical weapons arsenal out of storage facilities, according to U.S. officials.

The country's undeclared stockpiles of sarin nerve agent, mustard gas and cyanide have long worried the U.S. officials and its allies in the region, according to the WSJ.

Western nations have looked for signs amid the rebellion against President Bashar al-Assad's government of any change in the location of those weapons, believed to be the world's largest stockpile.

Does it take Einstein or Hawking to work out the math on this?  The U.S. gave the weapons TO Saddam, when he was fighting the Iranians.  So we all KNOW he had more than he ever used, so where did they go? 

Weapons, weapons, who's got the chemical weapons?  

And where are the MSM maggots who said Saddam had NO chem weapons or other WMDs?  I guess they'll still be talking that cr@p when people fighting against Assad are flopping around like Kurds on a hot plate?!

There was little in the news of the hundreds of pounds of yellowcake that was transferred to Canada for processing into nuclear fuel.......just got ignored a little.

A little?!

Here's what I'm waiting for. I'm fully expecting to hear the MSM make mention of these being ex-Iraqi WMDs, and blame Bush for not finding them. Especially if Assad uses them against his own people.

Don't mistake the people fighting Assad as "poor folks who only want freedom and democracy". There's a very strong radical Mooselame (ie: Al-Qaeda) element involved with these "poor people". And, as was the case in Egypt and Libya, you can bet that when Assad falls, (assuming Putin allows that to happen) Obummer's bro's in the Mooselamb Brotherhood will slide right in. Then who will have control of all those weapons?

As that great military mind, Gen. Kill-'em-All Poots says, the best way to get rid of chem weapons is with nuke-tipped Tomahawks.

there are 3 or 4 groups fighting that jerk Assad. AND the Muslim Brotherhood is probably the largest. But at the end of the day I don't care WHO it is, they don't need to be gassed or burned to death with chemical weapons.

I don't think Putin will let Assad fall. Or he might push someone else in there, move Assad to Moscow in 'retirement' and have a Commie / Muslim in charge that he can control. Unlike the foolish, jackass child in the WH, Putin KNOWS he can't afford to lose his last foothold in the Middle East.

As far as the Brotherhood goes, IF the people of Syria WANT the Brotherhood, and they fought for the Brotherhood, then...they DESERVE the Muslim Brotherhood! Just like the 'Muslim freedom fighters' in Iran in 1979, and the idiot voters in 2008, you GET what you SUPPORT. And if it bites then in the boo boo later, sorry for ya'!

if we nuked everybody you nuke 'em guys want to nuke, we'd all have to wear moon suits with full helmets and totally sealed connections to keep us safe from the ambient air and rampant radiation.

We're going to have to dress that way anyway when Iran is done with their nuke weapons.
