BREAKING: Assad’s Chemical-Weapons Unit on Road to Aleppo with Sarin Munitions! US & Allied Forces on Standby. US Carrier Off Syrian Coast
December 5th, 2012
The US is ready to launch military action in Syria “within days” if President Assad resorts to mobilising chemical weapons in an attempt to repel rebel forces trying to seize Damascus, The Times has been told.
Assad’s chemical weapons units head out of Damascus toward Aleppo
As NATO in Brussels gave the go-ahead Tuesday night, Dec. 4, for the deployment of Patriot surface-to-air missiles to protect Turkey against Syrian missiles, military and intelligence sources reported that convoys of the Syrian army’s chemical weapons units headed out of Damascus under cover of dark and turned north up the road to Aleppo. Their destination is not yet known.
The convoys were ferrying self-propelled cannons for firing shells loaded with poisonous sarin gas.
Syrian President Bashar Assad had evidently decided to ignore the warnings President Barack Obama issued Monday night that there would be consequences if he or anyone in Syria resorted to chemical warfare and each would be held accountable.
Sources report that the Syrian ruler is aparently gambling dangerously on the Americans holding back from attacking the convoys as long as they deploy unconventional weapons, and would only react when they are used.
