A scenario occurred to me that could change the American political landscape on a dime; What if the Obama ordered airstrikes are followed by UN weapons inspections and they discover the WMDs are the same ones theoretically transferred out of Iraq pre-US invasion of March 2003?
We know Assad has built some super-secret bases in Syria and that satellite photos followed a convoy of Iraqi trucks to one of them.
According to Ha’aretz News,
Syrian journalist and human rights activist Nizar Nayouf told the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf in 2004 that Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein smuggled his arsenal of chemical and biological weapons into Syria just prior to the United States’ invasion of Iraq in 2003.
In the interview, Nayouf claimed that Iraqi weapons of mass destruction were stashed in three separate sites in Syria, including an underground military base beneath the village of AlBaida, one kilometer south of Masyaf. Nayouf was imprisoned by Syrian authorities for 10 years. …
Similar accusations of Iraqi weapons smuggling into Syria were made by then-prime minister Ariel Sharon during an interview with Channel 2 news. Former Israel Defense Forces chief of staff Moshe Ya’alon made similar claims in an interview with the now-defunct New York Sun.
Even the Pentagon acknowledged a credible source providing sound evidence that 50 trucks did indeed make this trek out of Iraq to Syria and that these trucks were of a company owned by Uday Hussein. That isn’t even in question.
A big hypothetical, but can you imagine the vast change in the American political landscape of the masses of the individual voters if an Obama led strike followed by UN weapons inspector’s discovery of WMDs originating from Iraq are the very same ones used in last week’s horrific employment of these illegal weapons? The irony of Obama led action vindicating George W Bush’s decision to invade is too fantastic not to entertain.
