According to an urgent report by NBC News the Syrian Military has loaded the components for sarin, a deadly nerve gas, into aerial bombs that could be dropped onto the Syrian people from dozens of fighter-bombers, the officials said. Apparently the nerve agents were locked and loaded
Iraqi despot Saddam Hussein’s killed 5,000 Kurds with a single sarin attack on Halabja back in 1988.
U.S. officials stressed that as of now Assad hadn’t issued a final order to use the nerve gas. But if he does officials said, “there’s little the outside world can do to stop it.”
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton reiterated U.S. warnings to Assad not to use chemical weapons, saying he would be crossing “a red line” if he did so.
Speaking Wednesday at NATO headquarters in Brussels, Clinton said the Syrian government was on the brink of collapse, raising the prospect that “an increasingly desperate Assad regime” might turn to chemical weapons or that the banned weapons could fall into other hands.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, speaking Wednesday at NATO headquarters in Brussels, said the fall of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government was “inevitable.”
“Ultimately, what we should be thinking about is a political transition in Syria and one that should start as soon as possible,” Clinton said. “We believe their fall is inevitable. It is just a question of how many people have to die before that occurs.”
Saron gas does not result in a pleasant death. Initial symptoms following exposure to sarin are a runny nose, tightness in the chest and constriction of the pupils. Soon after, the victim has difficulty breathing and experiences nausea and drooling. As the victim continues to lose control of bodily functions, the victim vomits, defecates and urinates. This phase is followed by twitching and jerking. Ultimately, the victim becomes comatose and suffocates in a series of convulsive spasms.
Some think the threat of the use of Chemical weapons an Assad gambit to force the world to allow him to seek exile in Latin America. He wishes to trade an exile for the lives of his people. Lets pry that whatever happens he does not use those terrible weapons.
