The Gaddafi clan’s most senior figurehead has warned of ‘a 9/11 in Europe within two years’, while claiming that ISIS forces in Libya are now recruiting migrants to their terror cause with promises of ‘white virgins’.
Ahmed Gaddaf al-Dam, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s cousin and former intelligence official, has professed that ‘not less than half a million’ migrants will set sail from Libya to European shores this year. Continue reading
The CIA, working with United States troops during the occupation of Iraq, repeatedly purchased nerve-agent rockets from a secretive Iraqi seller, part of a previously undisclosed effort to ensure that old chemical weapons remaining in Iraq did not fall into the hands of terrorists or militant groups, according to current and former US officials.

TEL AVIV — For the first time, Israel has provided details of Syrian Army chemical weapons attacks on Sunni rebels.
Officials said Military Intelligence has determined that Syrian President Bashar Assad was ordering CW attacks on the rebels in several areas around Syria. They said several CW agents were used in reduced form to prevent mass casualties.
“To the best of our professional understanding, the regime has made use of deadly chemical weapons against the rebels in a number of incidents in the past few months,” MI research director Brig. Gen. Itai Brun said. Continue reading
Every day, Damascus inches a little closer to fulfilling Isaiah 17:1.
As the Syrian civil way went into its third year this week, signs abounded of increasing readiness for the use of chemical weapons on both sides of the conflict.
Since February, the US, Israel, Ankara and Amman have been aware of Bashar Assad’s resolve to override their threats and resort to deadly poison gas if the rebels closed in on the heart of Damascus. On April 3, an unnamed Syrian army officer made the warning clear. By continuing to advancie on Damascus, he said, “the rebels and their leaders” were assured of “certain death.”
At about the same time, debkafile reported exclusively that the Syrian ruler had ordered protective suits for chemical warfare and gas masks distributed to the 4th and 3rd Divisions defending the capital. Tank commanders were told to activate their filtering systems against chemical and biological agents. Continue reading
As has been remarked here numerous times, the notion of Assad using chemical weapons remains very likely. This, coming from a top general in the Syrian army, only underscores and proves what has been maintained by Global Geopolitics before the mainstream media took note of any reference to Syrian WMDs, and just how dangerous and grim the situation has become. War with Syria is on the horizon, which with the only aim is to decrease Iran’s sphere of influence and leave it isolated politically and militarily. Iran is then next to be toppled.
A former top general in Syria’s chemical weapons program says he doesn’t doubt for a moment that President Bashar al-Assad will deploy his chemical weapons arsenal as he tries to hold onto power and crush the uprising that started almost two years ago.
“The regime started to fall and deteriorate. It’s coming to its end,” said retired Major General Adnan Sillou in an interview in a hotel near Antakya, on Turkey’s southern border with Syria. “It’s highly possible that he’ll start using [chemical weapons] to kill his own people because this regime is a killer.”
Sillou told ABC News that until September 2008, he was chief of staff on the defensive side of the chemical weapons program. He said he was in charge of training soldiers against attacks and contact with the weapons, as well as procuring safety equipment to guard against them.
He listed mustard gas along with the sarin, VX and tabun nerve agents as the main elements in Syria’s chemical arsenal, whose existence Syria doesn’t even acknowledge. Foreign intelligence officials and analysts have focused on the first three as the main threats, and last week U.S. officials said there was evidence sarin had not only been moved, but its binary components, usually stored separately, had been combined and placed into bombs for use.
Sillou accuses Assad’s forces of already spraying pesticides and dropping white phosphorous, claims also made by opposition activists.
“They’re idiots, crazy. Simply they are killers,” he said. Continue reading
