Editor's Note: Democracy is coming to Syria as it has in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and Libya. Given the history of the US war machines since the early 20th century in which time it has destroyed dozens of nations, killed tens of millions of people overtly, and participated in the killing of hundreds of millions covertly, is it any surprise that another nation now finds itself in American cross-hairs? All in the name of FREEDOM & DEMOCRACY - what hypocrisy! Though the US may be the hammer of the whole earth, as Assyria was, as Babylon was, as were Persia, Greece and Rome, powers that make victims out of multitudes of nations and peoples eventually find themselves to be the victims of those in whose slaughter they participated. God's wrath is sure to fall upon Amerika Babylon - the only question that remains to be answered is when will it happen?
The Obama administration has assessed that chemical weapons, most likely the nerve gas sarin, were used in battle against the Syrian rebels, Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications Ben Rhodes said in a statement.
The “intelligence community assesses that the Assad regime has used chemical weapons on a small scale against the opposition multiple times in the last year,” he said.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry branded the US statements on the use of chemical weapons a “caravan of lies”.
"The United States, in resorting to a shameful use of pretexts in order allow President Obama's decision to arm the Syrian opposition, shows that it has flagrant double standards in the way it deals with terrorism," it said.
Syria had insisted in the past that it did not use its chemical arsenal in the ongoing conflict and would not do so unless invaded by a foreign nation.
President Obama has authorized to release of at least some US arms for Syria’s rebels as part of new military and political aid measures, according to a source who spoke with Reuters.
