Czech Anti-Chemical Warfare Troops Are Sent to Jordan After Obama Administration Loses Track of Syrian Chemical Weapons


In 2005 ten captured Al-Qaida terrorists stood trial in Jordan for attempting to explode roughly 20 tons of chemical weapons. Authorities captured the weapons coming into Jordan through Syria. It was the largest WMD cache ever captured for a planned massacre.

In September the Obama Administration admitted that the US had lost track of some of Syria’s chemical weapons. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta told reporters that they are not sure if the opposition obtained the WMD or how much they may have obtained.

Now this…
Czech anti-chemical warfare troops were recently sent to Jordan.
Foreign Policy reported:

Czech troops are in Jordan, providing technical expertise in case Syria’s massive stockpile of chemical weapons is somehow unleashed by the Assad regime, rebels, or terrorists.

“We do have the traditional CBRN [chemical, biological, radialogical, nuclear warfare] specialization, we have our anti-chemical units in the Gulf, in Kuwait . . . we do have some even in Afghanistan, we do have some cooperation now with Jordan because of the danger with Syria,” Czech Defense Minister Alexandr Vondra told Killer Apps yesterday while discussing the Czech military’s special role within NATO: dealing with CBRN threats.

While there are reports of some of the Syrian government’s advanced Russian-made SA-24 handheld surface-to-air missiles falling into rebel hands, we have yet to see evidence of Assad’s chemical or biological weapons making their way out of their supposedly secure storage sites — although there are reports of government troops moving the chem/bio weapons in an effort to keep them safe.

    I was fearful of this incompetent. Seems I was correct. I just don’t get the voters. This Blows!

    “Czech troops are in Jordan, providing technical expertise in case Syria’s massive stockpile of chemical weapons is somehow unleashed by the Assad regime, rebels, or terrorists.”

    Our worse fears. Well, the past 4 years were, now, ON TO THE NEXT FOUR, IF WE MAKE IT THAT FAR.

    Uh huh. I wonder where those chemical weapons came from…

    The Examiner 2012-07-14: Related topics SyriaIraqWMDReidPelosiDemocrats Advertisement As the news stories mount regarding Syrian President Bashar al Assad’s decision to move his chemical weapons stockpile from storage to areas closer to rebel locations, there is one thing the mainstream media is not commenting on: How Syria acquired what is reported to be one of the world’s largest arsenals of bio-chemical WMD? More to the point, what they are not reporting is this: From where did the Assad regime acquire their bio-chemical WMD?

    And Where Did Syria’s Chemical Weapons Come From?

    {……………………..}

    “Democrats have made the absence of stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq a theme in their criticism of the Bush administration’s decision to go to war in 2003…

    “The discovery of the weapons in Syria could alter the American political debate on the Iraq war. And even the accusations that they are there could step up international pressure on the government in Damascus. That government, led by Bashar Assad, is already facing a UN investigation over its alleged role in the assassination of a former prime minister of Lebanon. The Bush administration has criticized Syria for its support of terrorism and its failure to cooperate with the UN investigation.”

    If – and many of us believe when – the Assad regime decides to use these bio-chemical weapons; these WMD, against the rebels, and if the spent shells are found to possess Iraqi markings of manufacture, anti-war Democrats and Progressives here in the United States will have been complicit in what is tantamount to genocide, and all in pursuit of political gain; all so they could arrogantly chant “Bush lied and people died.”

    But such is the nature of the Progressive Movement. It seldom considers the repercussions of advancing their agenda at all cost. This time, so as to be able to demonize a sitting president politically, they may have ignored the arming of a tyrant who, today, may very well use WMD attained from another tyrant, against his own people, possibly to the level of use seen against the Iraqi Kurds by Saddam Hussein.{………………..}

    Sound familiar, POLITICAL GAIN. Benghazi and not a peep from Obama until after elections and even then they are Covering up. And now, WMD. Oh, how these progressives live with themselves.

    Unfortunately, it is long after the end of the Iraq War; long enough that the chance of any of those “progressives” answering for their actions during that time will be slim to none. Compounding that will be a Democrat media that will have no interest in revisiting the subject (if they do, count on a whitewash of anti-war liberals), a Republican Party “leadership” that won’t even try to set the record straight, and an American public for whom something that happened ten years ago is now is best relegated to the books as ancient history.

    If it weren’t so serious I would quip: it’s Bush’s fault! The lot of the media and 1/2 of the nation are Marxist morons! I would write > 1/2, but we all know massive fraud was involved.

    If you were capable of comprehending what you (presumably) read, it wouldn’t have been necessary for you to ask.

  • More liberty

    Let the French or Brits deal with it. I’m tired of American treasure and lives being sacrificed for lies and endless wars.

  • shadow, do you call yourself “shadow” to hide or because you are afraid of the shadow of great people? The report of convoys of trucks heading toward Syria and airliners quickly retrofitted as transports making flights to Syria were made during the Iraq war, but the Lapdog Leftist media tried to ignore and spike even witness reports.

    Yeah, we know EXACTLY where those chemical weapons came from.

    ….BOOO!….did I scare you?

  • Sasja

    “Who knows what evil lurks within the hearts of men?” Well, it ain’t this ‘shadow’. He’s as clueless as the rest of the sycophants.

    By the way, shadow, we know Sadam had chemical weapons as far back as 1988. The Kurds learned about them when Sadam used these weapons against them. Now most of them were supposedly removed or destroyed during the first gulf war, but I think it was never verified.

  • Sasja

    Speaking of the media. Let’s see, if memory serves, CNN, wanting to continue their presence in Iraq, never reported the countless murders and rapes by the evil Sadam and his sons which they knew were being carried out. Stellar outfit, CNN.

  • Joanne

    These were Saddam Hussein’s WMD transported into Syria via Russian trucks and/or gutted planes. Regardless, top priority for the U.S. should have been the securing of these chemical weapons as was earlier reported. The same happened in Libya. Are these weapons going to be used as leverage against the State of Israel, the U.S.A., and throughout Europe? Is Obama incompetent or is he willfully looking incompetent? He is guilty as all h*ll….may he burn in hellfire.

    Obama stole the election. Sure there are many dimwitted, brainwashed stupid people who voted for Obama, but there is no doubt the election was fixed.

  • Sasja

    OT

    Actually, shadow reminded of the old radio program we listened to when I was a mere child.
    Our neighbor’s children love OTR…they’re under age 10, especially the mysteries. This may, or may not be the right time for this, but sometimes a little change of course is good:

    Only insofar as you too get to vote.

    And what did the Kurds do to evoke such a response?

    Now most of them were supposedly removed or destroyed during the first gulf war, but I think it was never verified.
    More so than any cockamamie claim that his weapons were shipped to Syria on Russian trucks. And for that matter, it wasn’t about chemical weapons, but rather the types of weapons where “the smoking gun could be a mushroom cloud” to quote one of the Bush admin.

    The “obviousness” of it only existing in your small mind.

    argue all we want but no one knows what the alternate reality would have been. another direction could’ve started another whole new chain of reactions. i’m sure in some seedy dark corner there was another set of talking points ready for another direction of policy that was ready to be unveiled……visually fast forward to today with a heftier al gore……..

    I sure hope so.

  • TO RINO-Haters ~

    A lot of these commenters are OBAMA VOTES only WORSE!! Most chose to stay home and pout because they wanted a FAR RIGHT Candidate (anyone but Romney) Those who defaulted to Obama are worse than Obamabots because they knew how bad Obama is.
    And it will be us who has a short life, not Obama, because you want to kick the GOP to the curb. And the GOP offered to work with the Tea Party. But they said NO! Yep! Worse than Obama bots.
    Get a clue….Some Big Names (lib leaders) bought Stock in PaPa John’s and other companies that the far right support. The Lib-Commie Party knew in advance who would win this election.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    And the GOP offered to work with the Tea Party.

    Please.

    Might I remind you what Orrin Hatch said about those of us that want a smaller-government?

    And then there’s Jeb, who seems to think that the Tea Party is causing a shift by the GOP to the right, when it’s actually the GOP that’s been moving leftward all these years, courtesy of people like him, and the Tea Party is made up of those of us that are drawing the line at the slow leftward drift.

    But go ahead and keep following the GOP if you want. Me personally, I’ve had enough of it.

  • Confusing logic with facts

    Not a surprise. They lost guns in Mexico and we know where those ended up. So those who love to talk about the Republicans who went after WMDs in Iraq have a short memory (usually caused by small brains always seem to forget it was the Democrats who started the war.
    “If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.”
    –President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998
    “Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face.” –Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998
    “He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983.”
    –Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998
    “[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.”
    Letter to President Clinton, signed by: — Democratic Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others, Oct. 9, 1998
    “Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.” -Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998
    “Hussein has … chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies.” — Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999
    “There is no doubt that … Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies.”
    Letter to President Bush, Signed by: — Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), and others, Dec 5, 2001
    “We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and th! e means of delivering them.”
    — Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002
    “We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.” — Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002
    “Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.” — Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002
    “We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction.” — Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002
    Remember Clinton bombed Iraq for four days trying to stop these weapons of mass destruction
    The consultation prize here is: if they use them on us they’ll go for the big cities which all happen to be blue.
