It’s all over the news. John Kerry has stated publicly that the samples received by the US have tested positive for Sarin. Here’s just one source, but there are dozens of others.
“In the last 24 hours, we have learned through samples that were provided to the United States that have now been tested from first responders in east Damascus and hair samples and blood samples have tested positive for signatures of Sarin,” Mr Kerry said on NBC’s Meet The Press.” (source)
If this is true:
- Where did those samples come from?
- How were the samples obtained?
- How were the samples removed from Syria?
- What evidence in those samples says definitively that the government of Syria was responsible for the gas release?
“In the last 24 hours, we have learned through samples that were provided to the United States …”
Provided to the United States.
So we are asked to believe that the first responders, who are usually medical staff, were responsible for smuggling the samples out of a war torn country?
Medics who were treating the sick and dying, medics who would have been concerned not just for their patients, but for their own safety had the presence of mind to save and orchestrate the removal of tissue samples.
Sarin has a residual effect before it then rapidly degrades. To preserve evidence it would have had to be treated and handled with great care, we are to assume then that these first responders had the required kit and the knowledge of how to do this?
I call bullshit on this.
If samples have been provided directly to the United States they have either come from the rebel fighters themselves or from government agents who are in Syria already.
The ‘attack’ happened on August 21st, over ten days ago. For samples to last that long they have been preserved. Whoever handed them over had the right equipment to ensure their preservation.
If the samples did come from the rebels someone had provided them with the means to recover and preserve the samples prior to the event, there is no other explanation. The CIA of course would be quite able to carry out the task without assistance. They also have the means to get the samples back to the United States.
We will never know of course which it was, not that it matters. The results will be the same regardless of who took the samples, if indeed there are samples.
What our opinions are on Syria is a personal matter. Even a collective gasp and the agreement that what’s happening is terrible does not give the Obama administration the right to bomb another nation. I also fail to understand how bombing a city, killing God knows how many who have nothing to do with the Assad regime can solve the problem.
Does our government really believe Assad will sit there waiting for the bombs? Do they believe that the Syrian first family and the Syrian government do not have their bolt holes and bunkers just as the US first family and government does?
Obama is getting a reputation for supporting the opposition of Middle Eastern governments. with the exception of Israel he wants all the governments deposed. Is he not concerned about the after effects of his action?
As I said a while ago Sarin attacks within the United States are entirely possible. Some people disagree but it all depends on how much Obama wants to bomb Syria. It all depends on how far he will go to get the American people backing him. A nerve gas false flag attack would probably get him what he wanted.
We only have to look at history to see how retaliatory attacks work. Ann Wright, a former US Army Colonel and retired State department official writes:
As U.S. warships gather off the shores of Lebanon to launch Tomahawk Cruise missiles at targets in Syria, we can make some educated guesses of what the “unintended consequences” could be:
- Syrian anti-aircraft batteries will fire their rockets at incoming U.S. missiles.
- Many Syrians on the ground will die and both the U.S. and Syrian governments will say the deaths are the fault of the other.
- The U.S. Embassy in Damascus will be attacked and burned, as may other U.S. Embassies and businesses in the Middle East.
- Syria might also launch rockets toward the U.S. ally in the region—Israel.
- Israel would launch bombing missions on Syria as it has three times in the past two years and perhaps take the opportunity to launch an attack on Syria’s strongest ally in the region Iran.
- Iran, a country with a population of 80 million and has the largest military in the region untouched by war in the past 25 years, might retaliate with missiles aimed toward Israel and toward nearby U.S. military bases in Afghanistan, Turkey, Bahrain and Qatar.
- Iran could block the Straits of Hormuz and impede the transport of oil out of the Persian Gulf.

There will be a price to pay for any action the administration takes. They know this. We know this
If Obama really wants to be so involved in the Middle East and its’ politics I suggest he packs up Shelly and the kids and moves out there. If he can arrange a one way ticket for the rest of his sabre rattling warmongering buddies all the better.
