2012-10-15 22:20

Damascus - The Syrian army on Monday denied using cluster munitions and said it did not possess the weapon in its arsenal, in a statement published by state news agency SANA.

"Some news outlets that are complicit in the bloodletting in Syria have been publishing false reports that the Syrian army has been using cluster bombs against armed terrorists," it said, adding the military "does not have this kind of weapon".

    The unelected minority Syrian regime also claims Syrians, who just want to vote for their leaders like the rest of the freer world, are terrorists.

      Now that you mentioned it I do think that the US COULD HAVE ATTACKED ITSELF ON 9/11!

      Could have but didn't. You gotta get out of the head a bit more Dunkie, engage the heart and mind. A truer reality will emerge before your very eyes.

      I'm sure they will, provided it doesn't include your usual profanity, aka gutter language.

    The cluster bombing of Misrata committed by US Naval Forces, was also blamed on the Libyan forces, when it was later discovered that the bombs used belonged to a batch/design supplied by Spain (The MAT-120) to an "unknown" recipient that Spain refused to name. This so called Human Rights Watch has done nothing about this to date! NATO only admitted the use of cluster bombs in Serbia in 2007. People lie and so do governments. Question everything!

      Its not clear what happened in Misrata but those where mortars (MAT-120's) , which means you'd need boots on the ground and not likely to be Nato forces (if you have a link please post). Irrelevent though , check out some of the Syrian leaked files : http://english.alarabiya.net/index/contents/en_archive?lang=en&name=syria_leaks_en&type=articles&source=category As well as the editors ccomments on the backlash: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/faisal-abbas/al-arabiya-libya-leaks_b_1962865.html

      Again, Fidel believes Nelson Mandela is a phony, a lackey of the West, a modern-day Uncle Tom. His exact words in the US/Mandela thread several weeks ago. Dunkie believes Al-Quaida is a US fabrication to destabilize the stable Middle East. :)
