So Much for That Red Line… Medics Say Poisonous Gas Sprayed in Homs, Syria (Video)

On December 3, 2012, President Barack Obama warned Syria that the use of chemical weapons would be “totally unacceptable.” It was a red line not to be crossed.

But that was two weeks ago.
Today, medics reported that poisonous gas sprayed in a rebel-held neighbourhood in Homs.
Aljazeera reported:

Hat Tip Mara

As usual… The silence from the White House is deafening. So much for his “red line” talk… huh?

    Egypt says 64% voted for the Islamist Constitution..

    yeah right, like Obama really won the election.. *sigh*

    And the Russians are busy trying to hide all Saddam’s WMD’s before the Syrian rebel forces overrun the area.

    The last thing Obama wants to do is interfere with that cleanup. The entire premise of Obama’s first term is somewhat based on the ‘Non-existant’ Iraqi WMD’s.

    Stay out. Neither side is worth supporting, in fact the longer they kill each other the less likely they will be out killing in other countries.

    #1 Ditto!

    #23 JPMN – the problem with your theory is that the plan calls for the destruction of the SECULAR Assad government so it can be replaced with a Muslim Brotherhood (Shariah) dictatorship. If you think Syria is bad now under Assad, just wait until the MB get the Caliphate they were promised by the NWO.

  • rolling thunder

    Lots of things to consider here. Desperation on Assad’s part, a false flag from the FSA, Iranian agents possibly acting out of either sphere without the others knowledge. Something has definitely happened, but who is to blame at this point in time remains a mystery. We’ll know more in twenty-four hours. Whoever is responsible it’s a major escalation with unforeseen consequences.

    Our putz of a prez wants to see the MB succeed in Syria. Assad is a devil to be sure but is nothing compared to the MB.

    So far I have been unable to find any corroboration of this story anywhere else.

    We must remember there are Christians in Syria as well. We must remember to pray for them when we pray for Israel and all who have suffered, or will suffer under the jackboot of Satan’s followers.

    Syrian Christians fear bleak future AFTER Assad


    People think that Assad just turned into this mass murderer out of no where.
    He is a dictator, this is the truth, but the Muslims in the ME need a strong hand.

    IF we do not help Assad get his country under control, America will be DIRECTLY responsible for the persecution AND slaughter of Christians in Syria.

    The ‘rebels’ are JIHADISTS-and most Americans are siding with the Jihadists.

    So most here would commit to another unwinnable war in the Middle East at a time of economic crisis. And at a time when it is unclear who will be replacing the despot when the dust settles. That strategy has worked out so well in Viet Nam, Iraq, and Afghanistan-Brilliant!

    The rebels put out a video stating that they had gas too. It was demonstrated on live animals in the video. Who is to say that they didn’t accidentally didn’t gas themselves.

    I am confused. Are they trying to clean him out, or kill him?

    #30 Mundus: I don’t think that’s what most are saying.
    In fact, I think the reason Obama has been so quiet on Syria is because he knows if he sends in troops, he’ll be putting US soldiers there to fight WITH the Al Qaeda thugs he’s hired (armed) to oust Assad under the guise of freedom fighters. Silence gives him plausible deniability if the plan goes south (like Benghazi).

    But hey — sending US troops to help Al Qaeda operatives armed with guns & rockets supplied by Obama in defiance of Russia, China and Iran — what could possibly go wrong?

  • Dr Dude

    Obama will announce that we need to have a “Conversation” about this. Meaning, When I’m done $hitting my pants I’ll ignore it”.

  • shadow

    Even Al Jazeera call the claims unconfirmed. But it seems being able to use it to crap on Obama is all the confirmation GP needs.
