    Way too much evidence is showing that it was the Saudis by proxy who have supplied the rebels with chemical weapons not Assad. So why are the Saudis intent upon getting rid of Assad? The Saudis are planning together with Qatar a pipeline, which will run from the Gulf to Turkey. This will result in the Russian Gazprom having competition for the important European market. Currently, Russia controls all Natural Gas into Europe.

    Qatar has supported Syrian Rebels with $3 billion as well. Why have the Saudis and Qatar teamed up against Syria? Because Assad is blocking the pipeline and that protects the European market for the Russians. So as long as there is Assad in Syria, this pipeline will not be built because Russia wants to prevent this competition absolutely.

    Sort of curiously-titled article given it's saying that if a missile hit a reactor there'd be a nuclear disaster.

    Well no kidding.

    The MNSR is a Chinese research reactor, with existing safety concerns. Syria refused a Russian-built nuclear power station following the Chernobyl incident. However, Syria is a big customer for Russian military hardware and defence systems; and probably doesn't want it seen to be put to the test, just in case it is overdue for upgrading.

    Sure it is, it is clearly targeted to hit Obama hard on the left, with environmentalists. They may not realize that he might only see it as the next disaster he can blame his economic policy outcomes on.

    What evidence at all, beyond Alex Jones, is there that it was the Saudis?

    For one glaring problem with that theory, the Saudis aren't a known chemical state. Never have been. And the Saudi military is literally full of foreign advisors, so the idea that they have developed a chemical weapons program without anyone knowing stretches belief.

    While I certainly don't discount the possibility that the rebels initiated the attacks (and I am mystified why this angle is not getting more traction in the US media), you have to know that RT is certainly not unbiased, and while news outlets like MSNBC and Fox have bias, RT goes way beyond that to the point of practically being propaganda.

    I travel to Germany a few times each year, and they started showing the RT English language news broadcast about a year and a half ago, I think. At first I didn't know anything about RT, and after watching it for a while I was struck by how stridently anti-US/Israel and pro-Arab their slant was - after finding out that RT is "Russia Today" it started making sense.

    Well, Sarin has a shelf-life of at most a few years. The US stopped manufacturing it decades ago and has a monitored destruction plan for the enitrety of its chemical weapons force. And it has already destroyed the US's sarin stockpile and the entire stockpile of the QL precursor. I think we can safely rule ourselves out as a source.

    Then again, maybe The Onion is correct and there are bears fighting in the Syrian war now too. Seems, at worst, no less likely.

    Israel is pretty straightforward on this sort of thing; if they wanted him gone bad enough they would remove him.

    Lets just "colonize" everything that is between the US and the Caspian Sea.

    Turkey finds Sarin Gas in Homes of suspected Syrian Islamists


    Turkish security forces found a 2kg cylinder with sarin gas after searching the homes of Syrian militants from the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Nusra Front who were previously detained, Turkish media reports. The gas was reportedly going to be used in a bomb.
    The sarin gas was found in the homes of suspected Syrian Islamists detained in the southern provinces of Adana and Mersia following a search by Turkish police on Wednesday, reports say. The gas was allegedly going to be used to carry out an attack in the southern Turkish city of Adana.

    After all the smoke and mirrors and clear up, and the evidence does prove without a doubt that the rebels used the chemical weapons. Will this administration then hold the rebels to the same accountability, and target them with tactical strikes to reduce their capability? That's the corner they are painting themselves into. If they then refuse to strike, it would expose the truth and their agenda.

    That's the problem with conspiracy theories...once cracks start appearing in the theory, it inevitably changes to something only tangibly connected (in this case, the only thing you're using to substantiate an Israeli connection is: "hey, they hate Assad too!")

    Look, we all know the Syrian rebels have terrorist connections and links--and it wouldn't surprise anyone if they got their hands on chemical weapons.

    It's also well-known that Saudi Arabia and Qatar hate Assad, want him gone--and this is largely due to further eroding Iran's influence in the region (while bolstering their own). Yes, the potential for a solid business investment via the pipeline *also* exists.

    And yes, behind all that: Israel hates Assad AND Iran and anything to weaken those two instantly bolsters their own position.

    However, (getting back to the original topic) anyone with a map can easily identify at least one other way for a pipeline to get to Turkey--and two other ways a pipeline can be made to the Mediterranean Sea, where it can easily be shipped to Europe from there; so upon further inspection, the theory isn't as rock-solid as first made out.
