Syria has loaded chemical weapons into bombs; awaiting attack order from Assad
By Eric Pfeiffer, Yahoo! News | The Lookout – 12 hrs ago
U.S. officials say the Syrian military has loaded active chemical weapons into bombs and is awaiting a final order from embattled President Bashar Assad to use the deadly weapons against its own people.
NBC News reports that on Wednesday the Syrian military loaded sarin gas into aerial bombs that could be deployed from dozens of aircraft.
The last large-scale use of sarin was in 1988, when former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's forces killed 5,000 Kurds in a single attack.
However, U.S. officials told NBC that the sarin bombs had not yet been loaded onto planes but added if Assad gives the final order, "there's little the outside world can do to stop it." . . . [MORE]
This -- if true -- is outright insane.
And you can bet that if Syria has loaded chemical weapons, Israel is going on alert.
The Middle East is spinning further out of control.
Not good. END
