(Reuters) – NATO told Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Tuesday that any use of chemical weapons in his fight against encroaching rebel forces would be met by an immediate international response.
“The possible use of chemical weapons would be completely unacceptable for the whole international community and if anybody resorts to these terrible weapons I would expect an immediate reaction from the international community….”
President Bashar Al Assad, still manages to hold onto the reigns of power in Syria, in spite of 40,000, of his own citizens killed in a bloody civil war, which continues unabated. The world is well aware that Assad has chemical weapons. I posted here, years ago the idea that Saddam Hussein may have floated his chemical weapons over to Syria before the US invasion. It’s no secret Saddam had them, as thousands of Kurds were gassed by the regime. In addition to Saddam’s stash, Assad’s government manufactures tons of chemical weapons on a yearly basis. The question in everyone’s mind is, will he use them now?
Assad has threatened to set the Middle East on fire if he believes he will lose his position of power.
In a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, Assad said: “If a crazy measure is taken against Damascus, I will need not more than six hours to transfer hundreds of rockets and missiles to the Golan Heights to fire them at Tel Aviv.”
Assad’s regime is in a perilous state. Air traffic to the Damascus airport is spotty and yesterday Egypt canceled flights there because of security reasons. There is a flood of refugees pouring into Jordan, which is taxing the Hashemite kingdom. Added to this dynamic is the threat of the Moslem Brotherhood, who recently has targeted Jordan, as the next country to fall in the Arab Spring.
We showed clips in Watchers 5; of Dan Gordon explaining the brutality of the Assad regime. While Dan, who is a reservist in the Israeli defense forces, is speaking about Assad’s regime, we cut to a room in which a score of dead children are being mourned over. The video is chilling as it shows unedited, the results of Assad’s brutality. Gordon explains that Assad goes after the entire family, including women and children. This is how it’s done in the Middle East. There are no rules of engagement and anything goes, including rape, torture, killing of children and old people, and now, perhaps the use of chemical weapons. Essentially, everyone is a target.
Chemical weapons are weapons of mass destruction and the body count can rise dramatically if they are used. The use of WMD’s are condemned by the International community, nevertheless I believe Assad will use them if he believes it’s the only way to cling to power.
In closing todays post: Assad is a cornered lion. His regime seems to be slipping away and there are rumors that he has fled the country or is dead. However, if he is alive the questions lingers, will he use the chemical weapons against his own people to attain a pyric victory?
With all that is going on in Syria, I am reminded of the prophecy from Isaiah 17, which states; Damascus has become a ruinous heap. With what is transpiring in Syria, it makes me wonder if we are seeing this prophecy being fulfilled, not in one large tactical nuke attack, like many have supposed, but a slow lingering demolition of houses, and buildings, brick by brick, as the civil war continues.
Be still and know that I Am God. Behold, the days are coming when I will show my strength on the mountains of Israel.
