Excellent article! The American public does not want the US to be involved in Syria, or the Middle East in general! The US military just informed Obama that the US would need at least 75,000 troops in Syria if they had any hope of containing Syria's chemical and biological WMD arsenal, and just the mere introduction of foreign forces in Syria could cause Assad to unleash those WMDs!!

Didn't Assad say that those weapons were actually meant to defend against an attack by foreign forces?

Educated Folks! Always Remember "And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free!!" I always find these imbecilic egotistical nutjobs give themselves names like scumbag LYING nutjobs "Olivia Crumwell"; "The PROPHET"; "BLACK MAGICAL CLOWN"; "Lil' Joey Northern Liar Seeker"; "LIAR BEATS HIMSELF SILLY ALIAS UNREALITY NUTJOB ALIAS WAR MONGER"; "Syrian Assad Asswiper"; "Reality Check"; "un-Reality is always best"; "The Professor'; "Truth"; The Prophet"; "The Observer" are deranged uneducated low IQ Brainwashed Low Life Nut Cases! They are on some big huge ego trip all the time and think nobody notices their ignorance! It's obvious the clowns have never had any formal education what-so-ever but like to think they have! Everything they post is always 180 degrees off what a normal educated person would think, believe and understand! There is never any rational thinking and researching facts is out of the question as it never crosses their little pea brain in their little world of make believe! It's a sad situation as these clowns go around making themselves look like complete fools and imbeciles every time they post something! THEY NEED MENTAL HELP AND SOUND LIKE RAVING LUNATICS!!

He also said the weapons and ammunition from Russia, China and Iran was for the same purpose but so far as used almost all of them on his own citizens, so why would anyone trust his word any longer. Assad would not have time to fart, should he make an attempt to release chemical or biological weapons, there are many countries with eyes on the piles and should that happen i believe it would take about 2 seconds to release the end to Syria and Assad.

Assad could take out the entire region with those biological and chemical WMDs if foreign forces ever attempted to invade Syria, just as any nation would use every weapon at their disposal to defend against an invading enemy. Self preservation is the most powerful of all instincts.
