Report: Syria transported
chemical weapons to Iraq

Jerusalem Post, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:markinalpine, 9/15/2013 10:17:58 AM

Syria has moved 20 trucks worth of equipment and material used for the manufacturing of chemical weapons into neighboring Iraq, the Lebanese daily Al-Mustaqbal reported on Sunday. The government in Baghdad has denied allegations that it is helping the Syrian government conceal chemical stockpiles. The report came just a day after the United States and Russia struck a deal stipulating that Syrian President Bashar Assad´s regime would destroy its chemical arsenal to avert an American military assault. The newspaper reported that the trucks crossed the boundary separating Syria with Iraq over the course of Thursday and Friday. Border guards did

I wonder if they used the same trucks that Saddam used to move them to Syria?

There´s probably already a nicely landscaped rest stop along the way with signs saying "WMD Truck Parking Only" and "Area 52: 135 miles". And I guess our drones are too busy elsewhere to keep an eye on these obvious routes.

OP is right. But that is why the goal of quarantining and destroying all CWs is unachievable. No matter which option the US would have taken (go to war, take Putin´s deal, or do nothing), the CWs will be out there and circulating. Best we can do is to discourage their widespread use.

Here´s a scenario for you:

Remember when you were a child and an adult would play this game with you?

´Where´s the ball?", they´d ask. You´d point to the hand where you clearly saw it. Behind their back they´d quickly switch hands and produce an empty hand. Back and forth it would go.

This is the game Putin is playing with 0bama and it´s taking place on the world stage.

Lil Barry will eventually throw his tempter tantrum. Big sis Hillary will be sitting on the couch, in full on emo, saying; ´What difference does it make?´ While Michelle gripes from the kitchen about her bangs getting in the way and she can´t find the potato salad in the fridge.

More evidence of the stupidity of the Hillary/Rice/Power/Obama Leading with Their Behinds foreign policy.

But what i find the most sickening of all is the utter disrespect and disregard for the sacrifices --life and limb-- by our greatest national Treasures: Military men and women; add to the sacrifices the Ambassador, those who tried to rescue him, the copter full of SEALs and other soldiers who seem to have been "sent into" an ambush in Afghanistan.

And of course the media will not want to explore the peregrinations of WMDs, because they might have to apologize to President Bush et al.

Obama wants chaos..and Putin is just as likely to be working with Obama as against him. Assad knows that..and should remember it...
Either way-- this administration is in bed with America´s enemies..as Obama has tried his best to destroy all relationships with our allies.

Consider Obama has put the USA is an untenable position ...Qatar and Saudi want Assad´s pipeline ..yet Assad enlisted his allies Russia and Iran for the building of his pipeline...Putin needs Assad´s warm water port for his Nuclear Subs and access to the Mediterranean ..to move his oil to sell to and control Europe..where he´ll now have more sway with those who USED to be America´s allies.

Meanwhile, Obama has cut-off every possible bit of drilling and fracking he can in America...to our demise. Assad´s pipeline is smallball compared to the oil discovered in the USA. So...Qui bono? That answer is to any and all ...but America

While Obama arms the rebels/AlQaeda to take down Assad ...and turn Syria over to Qatar who finances the Muslim Brotherhood, and AlQaeda... It is the Muslim Brotherhood Obama fights for....Do some in the Senate support Obama thinking it will save the PetroDollar?...Perhaps. Or they´re simply other Communist traitors...like the pipsqueak Harry Reid.

This mess of Obama´s goes back to Benghazi and his arming of the rebels/AlQaeda...that resulted in Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans being tortured and murdered....and left behind with nary a second thought about their well being or their murders....Americans were Executed... exactly as planned.

The MIC has partnered with a communist ...disastrous for America. They need to enlist the American people to do the right thing...not just use our children and spill their blood on behalf of IslamoFascists who would just as soon kill all Americans. Weakening the American economy and destroying who and what America represents...will not only destroy us...but will be their demise too...

MINNEAPOLIS — Even as President Obama and progressive activists are trying to sell the nation on hiking the national minimum wage to help restaurant workers and other low-wage employees, the Internal Revenue Service is seemingly determined to make life harder for those same workers. A change in tax policy implemented Jan. 1 will prevent restaurant workers from collecting automatic gratuities — the added 18 percent fee many restaurants charge to groups of eight or more — as part of their tips. Instead, that added fee will be included in their payroll, meaning workers have to wait up to two weeks

This week Obamacare passed an unflattering milestone. As of today, the Obama administration has spent longer botching the implementation of Obamacare than the Roosevelt and Truman administrations spent fighting and winning the Second World War. America’s involvement in World War II began on December 7, 1941, with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It ended 1,365 days later on September 2, 1945, with the surrender ceremony aboard the U.S.S. Missouri anchored in Tokyo Bay. President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law on March 23, 2010. Today, December 18, 2013, marks the 1,366th day of post-enactment Obamacare implementation.

Are too many kids taking

The number of children taking powerful antipsychotic drugs has nearly tripled over the last 10 to 15 years, according to recent research. The increase comes not because of an epidemic of schizophrenia or other forms of serious mental illness in children, but because doctors are increasingly prescribing the drugs to treat behavior problems, a use not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). And a disproportionate number of those prescriptions are written for poor and minority children, some as young as age 2. Doctors are prescribing antipsychotics even though there’s minimal evidence that the drugs help kids for approved

Short-cut to produce hydrogen

OSLO - Scientists have produced hydrogen by accelerating a natural process found in rocks deep below the Earth´s surface, a short-cut that may herald the wider use of what is a clean fuel, a study showed on Sunday. Used in rockets and in battery-like fuel cells, hydrogen is being widely researched as a non-polluting fuel, but its use is so far hampered by high costs. A few hydrogen vehicles are already on the roads, such as the Honda FXC Clarity and Mercedes-Benz F-Cell, and more are planned.

The Obama administration quietly finalized the Health Insurance Tax (HIT) over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, a provision in Obamacare that will cost nearly $60 billion over the next five years and raise health care premiums by 3 percent. The final rule, published on Nov. 27, imposes a fee beginning in 2014 for health insurers with premium revenues over $25 million per year. The annual tax is levied for “United States health risks,” and is hidden from consumers since it is directly assessed on health insurance companies. David R.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by
