New video evidence has been presented that casts doubt on Assad's government being the ones who launched chemical attacks last week.
The video shows what appears to be the Free Syrian Army mounting a rocket containing the deadly Sarin gas.
WND says with the help of Walid Shoebat, they have gathered the evidence "from various Middle Eastern sources that cast doubt on Obama administration claims the Assad government is responsible for last week’s attack."
There is a video, click here to see it, that was posted on WND allegedly shows the FSA targeting a bus that drives by. Another video posted on Facebook, click here to view it, shows rebels loading a blue canister onto a rocket, supposedly nerve gas, to be used against Assad's forces. Once attached it's fired off in the direction of the Syrian Army.
A video posted on Youtube, click here to view it, shows the Syrian government finding what is allegedly FSA's chemical laboratory. The Syrian army discovered the rebel's storehouse in Jobar shortly after the chemical attack last week.
Chemicals such as chlorine were found along with plastic jugs, gas masks, vials of an unspecified medication, explosives and other items that the Syrian government said were seized from rebel hideouts on Aug. 24."
It was also said that one barrel had "made in Saudi Arabia" stamped on it. It's a well known fact that the Saudis and Qataris support the Syrian rebels. It was also broadcast that the Syrian government showed medicines manufactured by a Qatari-German medical supply company.
Syrian military sources said that the militants "were preparing to fire mortars in the suburbs of the capital and were going to pack missiles with chemical warheads." Other evidence that also points to the rebels being responsible for the chemical attacks are intercepted phone conversations.
SANA reports: "A phone call between a terrorist affiliated to the so-called "Shuhada al-Bayada Battalion" in Homs and his boss who was called Adulbasit from Saudi Arabia uncovered that terrorists used the chemical weapons in Deir Ballba in Homs countryside."
Supposedly the conversation was recorded and is said that it will reveal cooperation between two Syrian terrorists group planning to bring "two bottles of Sarin Gas from the Barzeh neighborhood in Damascus."
A report posted on nsnbc says: "A former member of the al-Qaeda associated, foreign-backed Jabhat al-Nusrah front which is fighting the Syrian Armed Forces in an attempt to oust the Syrian government to establish an Islamic Sharia state, has admitted that Jabhat al-Nusrah is in possession of chemical weapons, to be used in attacks in Syria.
The possible missile strikes that the U.S. and Great Britain are planning appear to be part of what Gen. Wesley Clark says is a military foreign policy coup.
Gen. Clark alleges that ten days after 9/11 he had a conversation with Don Rumsfeld. Rumsfeld supposedly told Clark the following: "I just want to tell you that nobody is gonna tell us where or when we can bomb, nobody" (FORA.tv). In the video Clark goes on to say he saw a memo from the Secretary of Defense that stated the U.S. will attack seven countries in five years.
The countries which the U.S. has in their crosshairs, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran. This is a rather chilling accusation that Clark makes in the video, click here to view the video. It looks like with the latest chemical attack that Obama weighing two-day military strike against Syria.
Will video evidence posted on WND be the proof needed to stave off cruise missile strikes against Syria by the U.S? It appears despite the many reliable sources saying it was the rebels, Obama and Britain's Cameron have decided to launch strikes anyway.
War is terrible and unfortunately an inevitable thing. It's the result of a world filled with sin, hatred, and evil. The government's biblical authority to take life is not absolute. Paul laid out the purpose of government in Romans 13, which is promoting good and punishing evil.
Thomas Aquinas and Augustine developed the "Just War Theory." This theory holds that while war is necessary under certain conditions and that moral guidelines should be observed. The theory says:
"War must be waged only for a just cause. Peaceful means of settling the conflict should first be pursued. The war must not target innocent civilians. The war should not cause greater evil than that which it is trying to eliminate. The war must be waged by a legitimate (or structurally accountable) authority."
Based upon this theory we should not be attacking Syria, because there is not enough evidence about who actually used chemical weapons in Syria. While the evidence seems to weigh heavily in favor that the rebels used deadly chemicals, it's still possible that Assad launched them.
