Are Saddam Hussein’s chemical weapons being used on the Syrians? Or is it a hoax by Assad’s enemies?

New unconfirmed video claims to show victims of a chemical attack. Two Israeli news sites have reported on a video allegedly posted by Syrian rebels over the weekend purporting to show four victims of a chemical attack outside Aleppo.

The Blaze  With the possibility any use of chemical weapons by President Bashar Assad’s forces could prompt U.S., European or NATO intervention in the nearly two-year civil conflict, the allegation that chemical weapons have already been used could have dire consequences for President Assad.

TheBlaze is unable to verify the veracity of the tape. The video was loaded onto YouTube by someone calling himself Aziz Majid. Some of those commenting in English on YouTube suggest the video could have been staged while others believe it is authentic.

The tape shows four individuals who appear to be in a hospital. One man sits in a chair in a hallway, one woman sits on a gurney and, in the same room as her, two – either teenagers or young men – lay next to one another on a gurney. All of their faces appear to be disfigured, while bandages on hands and feet are visible.

The Times of Israel which first reported on the story early Sunday morning writes:

Syrian rebels on Saturday uploaded to YouTube a clip purportedly depicting victims of a chemical weapons attack perpetrated by the regime. The video shows Syrian civilians, some apparently dead and others injured, whose faces were disfigured in a manner that could be caused by a chemical agent.

The rebels claim that the video was filmed in a suburb of Aleppo, where the Syrian regime reportedly maintains its largest depot of chemical weapons.

On Saturday, the Syrian Foreign Ministry vowed government forces would never use nonconventional weapons on their own people.

“No chemical or biological weapons will ever be used, and I repeat, will never be used, during the crisis in Syria no matter what the developments inside Syria,” said Syrian Foreign Ministry spokesman Jihad Makdissi.

The foreign minister suggested that opposition fighters could themselves use chemical weapons to frame the government and thus prompt international military intervention. “Terrorist groups may resort to using chemical weapons against the Syrian people… after having gained control of a toxic chlorine factory” east of Aleppo, Makdisi said.

A story in Sunday’s New York Times suggests just how complicated intervention could be for the U.S. and its allies. The Times reports that Syrian rebels tied to Al Qaeda are playing a key role in the uprising, raising the question could Western intervention in the conflict end up aiding Islamic terrorists?

The world watched as truck after truck left Iraq for Syria in the run-up to the Iraq War. It was widely believed that Saddam was shipping his WMDs (chemical/biological) weapons to Syria for safekeeping

Last Monday, President Barack Obama warned of consequences should Assad decide to use chemical weapons. “The use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable and if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons, there will be consequences and you will be held accountable,” he said.

White House Spokesman Jay Carney said the use of chemical weapons would “cross a red line for the United States,” though he did not say if the U.S. would militarily intervene.

(Of course, considering that the rebels are comprised of al-qaeda linked terrorists themselves, it is quite likely that this videi is fake)

      • Ice and BNI,
        the US has been involved in government overthrows for a very long time Remember Cuba? we trained and installed Castro? the official story is that we were duped into believing he was a nice guy and look what we got. used to be a lot more covert about it. remember the sarin gas attack on Tokyo in 1994 and 1995? ONE DROP OF LIQUID SARIN CAN KILL. in vapor form in the early stages it can resemble a cold. and since it is heavier than air it travels along the ground. please check out the CDC for more information.

  1. I saw reports years ago about large convoys being driven from Iraq to Syria in the days preceeding our invasion. No one wanted to listen and now I can’t remember where I saw them, but I think it was on a Christian tv station. They were speculating that Sadaam was sending his weapons to Syria to avoid losing them. I believed it then, (when we didn’t find any WMD) and I believe it now.

    • tj, most of the media did cover that story, which is why it was so strange that people were so surprised when no WMDs were found in Iraq. They were all in Syria. I guess it took until now to prove it.

      • @BNI and tj,

        I do not think the left has thought this out very well. Their whole basis of contempt for the post Bush invasion into Iraq was that WMD was never found.

        So, if WMD were to be found, suddenly in Syria that would imply that…..Bush was correct.

        I am guessing Obama and his Neo-Communist cronies are beginning to get impatient that Asad has not left yet or is dead.

      • I too read these reports but the world, family and friends laughed. I believed these reports to be true and cannot understand why the world’s politicians lied and lied and lied. I believe Saddam Hussein DID have biological and chemical weapons. The truth will always come out in the end. The press is disgusting.

  2. what is Obama warning on? Mohammedanism is the most terrible biological weapon on the world! And I think the political class wants make business together with this biological peasture.
