For anyone who remembers the WMD story hat started the war in Iraq, they may soon have a dejavu!
From the Wall street Journal: U.S. Concerned as Syria Moves Chemical Stockpile.
From the link above:
Some U.S. officials fear Damascus intends to use the weapons against the rebels or civilians, potentially as part of a targeted ethnic cleansing campaign.and it continues:
"This could set the precedent of WMD [weapons of mass destruction] being used under our watch," one U.S. official said. "This is incredibly dangerous to our national security."
Aha! A dictator with WMDs again. Time for war right? For anyone who forgot the Iraq movie, it seems that there is a repeat of the movie starting in the Wall Street Journal.
It also seems that some people really love wars. After months of an intense propaganda to obviously push for a new intervention and war in Syria, in support of the Saudi backed rebels, it seems that now we have another WMD story.
Lets see how easy people forget. As bad and bloody as the Syrian regime may be, the rebels against it may not be much better. The fact that Saudi Arabia is one of their major supporters and apparently weapon suppliers does not speak well of them. The question is, of course, why do we need to take sides in a terrible civil war. Hopefully the warmongers will not prevail and there will not be another new war there based on another "WMD story".
