Syria prepares for Chemical Warfare with Sarin

My phone has been ringing off the hook with reports about the Syrian military which started to load precursor chemical for the deadly nerve gas sarin into bombs for potential aerial attacks on rebels. The chemicals are locked and loaded for deployment and the Syrian military waits for final orders form President Assad.

The first reports were released on Tuesday and contained classified information that the process of loading the bombs with sarin has begun. Syria has suffered from the rebels and so far has tried to kill the terror with conventional warfare. Unfortunately Syria does not only have to battle the rebels, but also countless foreign governments who support the rebels financially and ensure the rebels have weapons to continue the fight against the government.

It has been a tug-of-war with rebels and each time the government has claimed a victorious battle rebel forces were supplied by foreign governments with all necessities to relaunch the battle and wreck havoc on the population. The rebels are supported by a surprisingly large amount of the civilian population which has made the situation that much worse and created the civil war Syria has to manage.

President Assad and his loyal military have tried to resolve the issues at hand but thanks to foreign intervention into this sovereign country it has been a process which seems to never end and forces the government into radical measures in order to put an end to the civil war and rebuild the country for those citizens who are against the war.Those who support and shelter the rebels deserve to die alongside them which would allow for a better and stronger Syria under the leadership of President Assad.

Syria possesses the largest chemical stockpile in the Middle East and has very advanced agents which it did not plan to utilize, but as time runs out the rebels under the aide of foreign intruders have forced this step. Several governments including the U.K., France as well as several Arab countries have already recognized the rebel government know as the National Coalition of Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces. The U.S. is expected to follow suit. The rebels are being sheltered in Turkey.

Syria is able to deliver chemical agents through bombs loaded onto either their Sukhoi-20/22 or Sukhoi-24 as well as MiG-23 aircraft. In addition Syria possesses roughly 200 Scud-B missiles, 120 Scud-C missiles as well as a few dozen SS-21 ballistic missiles. Alternatively Syria can arm unguided Frog-7 artllery shells with chemical agents.

The main problem is that the news outlets paint the wrong picture. They claim that the Syrian government is the oppressor and supports the rebel movement when it is the rebels who started the civil war. The government reacted to the attacks against its citizens in the same manner any other government would have reacted and therefore is not at fault in this situation. President Assad has every right to defend his country and citizens from all enemies foreign and domestic.
