The US officially drowned the Syrian gas claim made by al-Jazeera with cold water.
Let’s step back and calculate logically this mystery.
We know what A stands for: AssadÂ kills innocent civilians.
We know what B stands for: BelieveÂ AssadÂ will do anything to remain in power.
We know what C stands for: Chemical weapons, whichÂ SyriaÂ has plenty of.
We know what M stands for: Moving and mixing of Assad’s chemical weapons have started and the US officially brought it to our attention.
We know what P stands for: Putin equipping Assad with MIGÂ jetsÂ capable to mass deliver WMD.
We know what Q stands for: QatarÂ helping the Muslim Brotherhood ascend to power in Syria. They will stop at nothing to reach their goals.
We know what S stands for: Substantial gains by the rebels lately, which induces Assad to use WMD to stop them.
We know what Y stands for: YouTube videos showing rebels either under gas attack or having an Asthma attack.
Does A+B+C+M+P+Q+S+Y equal to a definitive answer that Assad used chemical weapons? Or does it shed doubt because of Qatar’s ulterior motives, which was the first to report it?
You be the judge.
Is Obama lying to the public because Putin has not said “Da” yet? Or is the Muslim Brotherhood deceiving the West in order to replace Assad?
At least with the US doubting, the pressure is on the Syrians fighting to produce more conclusive evidence, a point I will drive very hard today when I speak to the FSA.
If not, the MB would have blemished Syrians fighting and they will become like Assad: Crying wolf makes you inconsequential.
Meanwhile, I stand firmly behind the belief that the destruction of Syria will have dire consequences for many years to come for the whole region, something Putin is betting on toÂ continueÂ with the Soviet-style destabilization of the Cold War.
