US believes Syria has chemical weapons, could Bush have been right?

wmd

The White House said Thursday that the U.S. believes “with some degree of varying confidence” the Syrian government has used chemical weapons — specifically the nerve agent sarin — against its own people.

A letter from the White House to members of Congress said the assessment was based on “physiological samples” but called for a United Nations probe to corroborate it and nail down when and how they were used.

Sarin is a man-made nerve agent that has been used in terrorist attacks in Japan and possibly during the Iran-Iraq War in the 1980s, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. In large doses, it can cause convulsions, paralysis and death.

The U.S. has long believed that Syria was stockpiling chemical weapons. Intelligence reports indicate that it has sarin and the nerve agent tabun along with traditional chemicals like mustard gas and hydrogen cyanide. A 2011 CIA report said Syria was also developing the potent nerve agent VX, which could render a city uninhabitable for days.

    Now who are the liars?

    • silverbackV

      They always have been, it’s real easy to malign someone if you aren’t hindered by facts, truth, honesty, morals, integrity, decency, or logical thought processes. This is the same bunch that has separated us from our Christian founding and continues to flaunt degradation as normal life. We will and are paying the price for not standing up to them.

    I KNEW BUSH WAS RIGHT!! YET THE LEFT CONT. TO CALL HIM A LIAR!

    • El_Love

      of course he was right — Iraq used chemical weapons on the Kurds and it is 100% unlikely that they used all they had or did not manufacture more for furture uses and purposes. The UN also gave Saddam plenty of time to move them — we all knew this but the diabolical left wing media saw it as a political tool to spread lies and discord with.
      Our media is shameless — Obama has commited more crimes than any president in our history and keeps getting cover ups and passes from the media. Think Richard Nixon…….

      • https://me.yahoo.com/a/CfsINEYDoex3fXYF.FLFCPOcXaFQros-#f30f8 jong

        We also know for a fact that Saddam had nukes or was very close. Material was detected by sat that crossed the Syrian frontier that was of the same wave length. For more proof follow the money to North Korea that he was paying to help him in both materials and advice. Iran most probably got all of this when they sent two ships to Syria for a friend ship visit two years ago.

          • https://me.yahoo.com/a/CfsINEYDoex3fXYF.FLFCPOcXaFQros-#f30f8 jong

            This was after that incident. And although what you say is true he still had the knowledge if he could ever get a hold of more material. It is logical to say that his big brothers in Iran told him that they could make better usage and would be safer there. Some proof in this is the constant flow of military arms that is flowing to Syria from Iran. I expect that if we come involved Iraq may allow Iran to funnel troops through their country or side with Iran totally.

      well, we haven’t followed the rules laid down by our Founders and had the COngress declare war, instead we’ve pussyfooted about aimnlessly under al manner of stupid PC restrictioins put on the “polilce actions” and “interventioins” by lawmakers.. who are NOT military experts…. we’ve had presidents with their hands tied up and rendered useless for so long, now we have one standing in as pres who is useless from the git go. Had our administration held their ground and demanded COngress declare war in Korea rather than falling for the UN “peacekeeping” nonsense, we’d never have got to the worldwide mess we’ve got today. Ron Paul is also right….. pull back our men from the 170 or so nations we’ve sent them to and end the workdwide cop meme we’ve taken up.. starting with Korea. We’d be in a whole lot better shape. Open trade with all nations, military involvement with none. Read George Washington’s Farewell Address on the termination of his Second Term as President.

Ask the ICE personnel who they are being forced to break our laws in their job under threat of being fired if they try to inforce them. The gov’t is being sued by ICE’s union in our courts for this very reason only the general media won’t tell you that. Our Dept. of “Injustice” is trying to keep them from doing their jobs. We have a crook running it, what can we expect.??????????

  • Jim

    Bush has always been right about the existence of chemical weapons in Iraq. They were used by Hussien to kill 5k Kurds prior to the Gulf War. Before the Americans arrived, the weapons were shipped to Syria across the border to keep them hidden. After Saddam Hussien’s demise, the weapons became the property of Syria. These facts have been proven time and again, but the left wing media refuses to aknowledge them.

    • DianaS

      Jim, you are so very right!!! It’s been so simple to see since day one. We certainly gave them PLENTY of time to hide them. It’s a no brainer!!

    • SunniD

      Exactly right. Intel had it that trucks were moving the WMD’s into Syria. They have videos of Saddam testing the chemicals on animals. Sick!! Even sicker, he then actually used them on the Kurdish people. This is well documented, the photos of dead women and children are horrendous.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Rhonda-Reichel/1339255666 Rhonda Reichel

      BINGO! The moment I heard about chemical weapons in Syria, I said those are probably the same chemicals the Iraqs shipped across the border. It was even on video.

      Then, the stupid libs who were out to GET Bush tried to make everyone believe there were No chemicals………..sure!! , we all saw the loaded trucks making trips into Syria but they tried to make our President at fault, when in fact ALL Congress voted to go into Iraq because of the chemicals we all believed were there and they were indeed there before they shipped to Syria. Good call, President Bush! and Congress.

  • No Name

    There was an interview with a Christian missionary who was in Bagdad prior to the invaision of the U.S. forces to overthrow Saddam H. If you will recall,Saddam actually allowed Christian churches to exist,he “protected” them from the crazies ,aka moslem extremists. The Christian missionary “witnessed” convoy after convoy of heavy trucks going into the desert and not returning,and he was told by his sources,that these were the trucks loaded with weapons of mass destruction. If this is true and if this is the case,is there any room for doubt,why there were no weapons of mass destruction found in Bagdad? Could these be the “W of MD? If this is indeed the “proof”,ergo Bush did not lie,and the democrats still are.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Rhonda-Reichel/1339255666 Rhonda Reichel

      So…you are saying then that our intelligence didn’t know the weapons had left in spite of all the inspections prior to invasion & our 16 intelligence agencies….that’s pretty lame if that’s true
      All that were there by the time we invaded were old remnants not even viable anymore. Poppy blew much of them up in the first gulf war.

    • maryflaur

      Remember the phrase “Bush lied, people died.” I never did think he lied. My husband and I voted for him then, and would again.

  • jsnh

    How else could Syria have WMDs? It took so long before inspectors were allowed to look for them in Iraq that it was no surprise the weapons were removed from Iraq. Don’t forget, Congress also thought Saddam had WMDs, but then blamed Bush. Weapons are sent or transferred throughout the Middle East quite often, don’t you think? Like Libya, Turkey, Syria (I’m thinking about the Benghazi attack, obviously.)

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Rhonda-Reichel/1339255666 Rhonda Reichel

      Gen Clark said that they had planned to attack Syria, Iran, Iraq etc years before it happened….even before Bush got elected it was being planned. Don’t be naive.

  • mrookergolf1

    The reason why the US did not find chemical weapons in Iraq was that Sadam moved them to Syria. He had plenty of time to do it with the delays of the UN and 17 resolutions. Now, Syria can use them on its own people and anyone else that wants to mess with them.

  • gbandy

    Bush was never a liar as lying is not in his character. He might of been misinformed by the Intelligence community as was Hillary Kerry and many others. Now we all should remember just prior to the invasion of Iraq several truck convoys were spotted leaving Iraq and heading towards Syria. Bingo Syria has Chemical Weapons. So I always in my heart knew Bush did not lie! Now how many examples of blatant downright lies can I cite from Obama? Many. History will show the Liberal Media and the Democrats used a falsehood of the Chemical Weapons threat of Iraq against Bush and the Republicans that the Democrats knew way a real lie. Finally there were many other countries who also knew Iraq has Chemical Weapons as all the troops had the protective gear. No country was fooled but Saddam moved the weapons to Syria.

  • Carlos

    So, this is where Iraq hid its WMD. Surprise, surprise..

  • dave3200

    Yes, Syria was Iraq’s hidey hole for their WMD’s – pretty common knowledge.
    No, Syria’s military has not used the WMD’s against the rebel invaders even though McCain and Graham say they know so. McCain says he learned this from rebel leaders “who we trust”. McCain is a raving lunatic and will cause our country to continue under democrat control unless he is silenced.
    The only chemical weapons used in the Syrian conflict were of chlorine gas taken from a chlorine gas production facility in an area of Syria recently captured by the rebels.
    Why does Foxnews insist on saying the Assad regime has used chemicals against the rebels? What basis do they have? McCain’s word? Such B/S. The sorry thing is, Foxnews knows the truth about what’s happening over there but the reporters who know the facts aren’t allowed to report honestly.
    So much for “freedom of the press”.

  • wolfd

    Americans in Syria are saying that CIA/ Al Qaeda / UN goons are responsible for unrest….sniper fire from all directions is what is going on….just as Libya…. wanting to be independent of US currency get the shaft….. Americans and citizens of both countries, outcries for intervention…..Riots smaller than the Los Angeles riots don’t need the UN to bomb them…… lame stream media would have you believe that all is lost…. and that Assad is the threat….Not so….this is a war in which you will be sold a story.. Russia, Iran, Pakistan, and China are the targets….. and neither country wants a war…… The banks have funded both sides of every war ever fought

  • Dexter L. Wilson

    Both on television and in the Bible codes it said that WMD’s were buried in a specific valley in Syria before the American invasion of Iraq. The Russian Spitznaz troops were dispensed by Russia to move the WMD’s to Syria. Why the media has never said anything about this can only be because of their love for Democrats and Communist philosophy as well as their hatred for Conservatives. Even when Obama uses the same methods as Bush to obtain information, he can do no wrong. Explain that to me.

  • wolfd

    I guess most think that America is the only country that is allowed to police the world…. steal atomic tech. fr the nazis, build a bomb and use it….. and Bush’s grand daddy, Rockefellar ‘s, Rothchild , US standard oil, Alcoa, and Bayer gave you the nazis via IG Farben….. it is all a very misleading unfortunate agenda…. follow the money to expose the agendas and you will find the culprit

  • Tionico

    of COURSE Bush was right.. he must be laughing now. I hope he is publically vindicated. I saw satellite photos of large convoys of trucks heading across the border into Syria.. trucks the like of which were not seen in Iraq before. We KNOW they had those agents, in deliverable form, because we helped them GET them years before. The UN had records of what they had, they were supposed to allow periodic inspections to verify their location and quantity. They were also, after First Gulf, supposed to be systematically destroying them, under UN supervision… which they somehow stopped doing.. and got away with. Since there was no proof Iraq nad destroyed them as per treaty agreement, Bush was perfectly safe and correct in asserting thjey still had them. Had COngress not dallied so long, we’d have been in there before they got whisked away, and Syria would not have them now. The very fact Sadman INsane was still alive after First Gulf is further result of COngress’ incompetence. They refused to give authority to the presiednt at the time to cunduct a real war and END it…. instead allowing that administration to persue a “police action” wiht veyr restrictive “rules of engagement”…… playing cat and mouse instead of going in and cleaing up Iraq’s mess. When I learned we would not be going after Hussein himself to remove him from his power I just shook my head and said “just like CHurchil, he’ll be back. Only up to no good, in contrast to Churchill.

    THIS is why our FOunders insisted it is the Congress that has the power to declare war. Once war is declared, THEN the CinC must persue it with all vigour and clean up the mess. Since WW 2 we’ve not done it this way. And it has cost us trillions and hundreds of thousands of lives.

    Bush knew he was going to be killed in the press over these weapons. In true Bush class, he knew the facts would come forth. He didn’t care about appeasing the press or add a reason to continue the debate. He was being Presidential, a state of class (as in manners not seen anymore) that’s lacking in Politics today.

  • Robert Moulds

    I’m not surprised maybe the Iraqis hid them in Syria but doubtful in 1991 the Syrians were in desert storm which drove out Saddam’s armies from Kuwait. However Iraqi aircraft flew to Iran to avoid being destroyed only to be seized by Iran. So it is possible then again Syria had a chemical weapon program and was a revival to Saddam’s Iraq and an ally of Iran during the Persian Gulf war 1980 to 1988 Iran could be involved. In any case at least Barack doesn’t have to worry about Saddam.

    The news media hates God, truth, justice so they rip it apart and lie about it. They build up evil, and anything to do with it. People follow the newsmedia like blind sheep. Too bad for all of us. Do you really think The UN will be honest and truthful? lol!!!!!!!

    I knew Bush was right! Saddam Hussein funneled those chemicals into Syria when he knew Bush was sending our Troops. I have never doubted Bush’s leadership of America. Can’t say that for what is in there now. Bush kept us safe from terrorists since 9/11. Obama has let five terror attacks happen and more is coming. None happened on Bush’s watch. Obama needs impeached for Benghazi coverup and purposely inflicting pain on Americans to get his tax increase. I hope 2014 we clean his plow with electing more conservatives to congress. He is still without proof he is legal to be in the whitehouse.

    How come I get this stinking suspicion that we are being manipulated into yet another war by our leaders that we do not want? There is too much info out there to not come out with this conclusion. Things are too orchestrated.

    I’ve thought so all along. He had good intel….and I don’t think he would have taken such a giant step if he wasn’t sure.

    asn’t it suggested during the Bush Administration that Sadam Hussein gave their WMD’s to Syria right before he was taken down. Our lying leftist press corps refused to admit that. Well perhaps time is proving him right and Americans had better stop listening to a press corp that hides the truth from them and lies about it when it comes out. Americans, these leftists think we are all stupid and can’t put two and two together. Time to show them how wrong they have been. Time to get rid of the present “regime” living in the WH and the rest of his entourage of liberal/leftists who have no interest in keeping a free and soverign nation. Folks why do you think they want to keep people on the dole and uneducated………just look at the proof of their long years of making the pudding. Time for a real change, one that we can truly believe in and that’s to go back to being the free nation we always have been and send these destructo folks packing. Pay attention to what’s going on!

    Iraq’s WMDs were shipped to Syrian prior to our invasion. Syrian did not have WMDs until this time. Review what Iraqi defecting officers claimed years ago.

    Bush tried to warn everyone about the housing market crash.People laughed at him called him crazy

    He tried to warn everyone about WMDs (gas). That Iraq had and was shipping to Syria.Everyone laughed and called him crazy.

    Well I guess the crazy guy was correct.
