US: No evidence of chemical weapons

2013-03-19 21:24

Washington - The United States said on Tuesday it had seen "no evidence" that Syrian rebels have used chemical weapons and warned it would be "totally unacceptable" for the regime in Damascus to use such arms.

Responding to claims by the Syrian government and its ally Russia, White House spokesperson Jay Carney said the US has "no evidence to substantiate the charge that the opposition has used chemical weapons”.

    . I would a thousand times, rather believe the US, than SANA, the private media company of these assad terrorists!! Very possible, this assad tyrant is looking for an 'excuse' to start using these monstrous weapons himself !!!!!!! An animal in a corner is pretty dangerous!!!

      So I guess you still believe that there's WMD's in Iraq.

      Sheldon, And I guess you believe G.W. Bush is still president of the USA!! This is the problem with the ones from the left, you get stuck in a time of history, and go on, and on, and on......... IT IS 2013!!!! Ten years ago, in a supermarket, the large eggs were still large, and selling at half the price they do now!! Are you still running up to the manager and complaining ???

      A lie is still a lie.thousands died based on that.Considering that the US is the source one have to be sceptical.

      Sheldon, That might be so, and maybe you and me won't dissagree much about Iraq, but that is over TEN YEARS ago. The world has moved on, and fast. Stop going back into history to prove your point, Tell us what they are doing today, and planning for tomorrow. If you enjoy history so much, go and work in a museum!!

      Sheldon - they didn't find a nice new shiny nuclear bomb indeed but sarin , yellow cake , blister tip scuds , parts ect were found . They also know that he was arranging uranium from Niger and trying with other countries like Syria and Iran to buy off the shelf nukes from North Korea. A lie is a intentional deception , the evidence was presented to congress who voted in favour with outright majority on that evidence. Unless you go and actually check without the ministry of concealment telling you were to look , you'll never be 100% sure . Lets not forget that he was and did get close to manufacturing the bomb , he did actually use chemical weapons on his own people and Iranian forces , he did invade two neighbours and was in contravention of every point in the agreements to cease hostilitesfrom the first gulf war. (Any one of these renders sovereignty null). Umlilo - the US , unlike with the other countries mentioned actually has a relationship with the US , so there are diplomatic means of change but a major reason is that they allowed a US base to be established in Saudi so that US forces could maintain the no-fly zone over Iraq to protect the Kurds from attempted annihilation again. That base was Osama's big gripe and why he planned the NYC attacks. So Saudi Arabia is not commiting genocide and armed invasions of neighbours (Iraq) , or a mass exporter of terrorists (Afgan) or a declared enemy of the States that blows up passenger jets (Libya-Gaddafi).

    The USA is not known throughout the world for it's truthfulness. they claimed that Saddam had WMD's which was found to be baseless, they said Bin Laden was in Afghanistan which was also baseless, they said comandente Hugo Chavez was a dictator which was also not true they said in 2001 that by 2005 Iran would have nuclear weapons which was also a lie. FACT is that Washington is a pathological liar

      You clearly pathalogically ignorant then. Saddam must have used oxygen bombs on the Kurds and the Isreali's bombed a sweet factory .bin Laden was never in Afgan dispite fighting the Russians there and when you usurp the highest courts powers , imprison you opponents , control the press to rail road your policies thats not democracy ..... its dicatorial.
