    Default US Chemical Weapons Report in Syria Fabricated Russian MP

    http://en.rian.ru/russia/20130614/18...ussian-MP.html

    MOSCOW, June 14 (RIA Novosti) A US government report concluding Syria has used chemical weapons against rebels, crossing what US President Barack Obama has previously described as a red line, is a fabrication, a senior Russian lawmaker said Friday.
    Information about the usage of chemical weapons by [Syrian President Bashar] Assad is fabricated in the same way as the lie about [Saddam] Hussein's weapons of mass destruction [in Iraq], Alexei Pushkov, head of the Russian lower house of parliaments international affairs committee, said on Twitter.
    US intelligence reports presented to the UN and the international community prior to the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 claimed Saddam Husseins regime possessed weapons of mass destruction including nerve agents, ballistic missiles and a nuclear weapons program. The US claimed the threat posed by those weapons justified the invasion of Iraq, but after the country was occupied, the alleged weapons of mass destruction were never found.
    President Obama is going the same way as former President George W. Bush did then, Pushkov said.
    The White House said on Thursday it now believes with high confidence that Syrian government forces have used chemical weapons many times during the two-year conflict there, and vowed to boost US aid to the armed opposition fighting to remove Assad from power.
    White House Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said Obama had decided to provide further support, including military support, for Syrian opposition forces as a result of its conclusion that government forces has used such chemical weapons.
    Rhodes declined to clarify whether this support would entail providing arms to the Syrian opposition, but said US aid to armed opposition on the ground would differ greatly in scope and scale from assistance Washington had previously provided to the rebels. The US goal, Rhodes said, is to strengthen their effectiveness.
    Syrian government officials have accused opposition forces of using chemical weapons against President Bashar Assad's military in a March attack in outside of the northern city of Aleppo.
    Some 93,000 people are believed to have died since fighting broke out between Syrian government forces and rebels in March 2011, according to the latest UN figures.
    Updated at 11:02 to change "cooked" to "fabricated" in headline and first quote by Pushkov

    Right. So the French, German, Turkish and British scientists who have ALSO found evidence of chemical agents in the Syrian regime's weaponry are similarly "fabricating" things to suit themselves...Because, of course, we ALL want to enter into yet another disastrous, financially crippling, and ultimately futile Middle-Eastern war, don't we...

    People should be more concerned about the fact that Russia has been signaling that it is ready to "throw down" over this. I'm sure we're going to see the anti-war crowd protest this. Um, right?

    Is there a pro-war crowd?

    Of course Russia's gonna pitch a bitch about this, they're propping up the Assad regime supplying them with fighters, tanks and other hardware. As usual, it comes down to the US, Russia and China supporting opposing factions in some regional stone age conflict that all parties would be better served in the long run just leaving to their own devices.

    To be fair, there was similar international consensus about Iraq.

    But I agree, it's hard to believe Russia would stand their ground on something like this.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    The difference on this occasion however being that, as far as I'm aware, these are independent scientists who have found evidence of sarin, for example - not individuals with an agenda, as such.

    Also, given the monumental cock-ups involving international intelligence in the build-up to the Iraq war, I'd imagine that everybody involved this time round is being ultra-cautious in leaping to any conclusions about anything.
