Won’t Get Fooled Again? WMD Propaganda Greases Skids For Attack on Syria
December 5, 2012
BREAKING: Syria loads chemical weapons into bombs; military awaits Assad’s order
The United States is now dusting off the WMD argument as it makes preparations to intervene militarily in Syria.
On Tuesday, U.S. officialdom said the Syrian regime may be “cooking up recipes” at multiple sites to arm chemical weapons, according to CNN.
The statement followed an earlier one issued on Monday that said the Syrian army had started combining chemicals that could be used to make sarin gas weapons and underscored statements made by Obama about the use of chemical weapons. Obama said there would be “dire consequences” if Syria used chemicals weapons.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton followed Obama’s warning by stating that the U.S. military would “take action” if Syria crossed the chemical weapons “red line.” Clinton said the Obama administration is “certainly planning to take action if that eventuality were to occur.”
