A troubling video appears on YouTube showing rebel fighters testing chemical weapons in Syria.
December 7, 2012 (Syria Tribune) – While President Obama is busy talking about Syria’s chemical weapons,
a troubling video appears on YouTube yesterday showing what appears to
be a rebel group testing chemical weapons on lab rabbits, and
threatening to use them against Syrian civilians on a sectarian basis.
The video (see here) starts with several scenes showing chemical containers with Tekkim labels (Tekkim is a Turkish chemicals company)
and some lab equipment, while playing Jihadists chants in the
background. A glass box then appears with two rabbits inside, with a
poster on the wall behind it reading The Almighty Wind Brigade (Kateebat A Reeh Al Sarsar).
A person wearing a lab mask then mixes chemicals in a beaker in the
glass box, and we see some gas emitting from the beaker. About a minute
later, the rabbits start to have random convulsions and then die. The
person says: You saw what happened? This will be your fate, you
infidel Alawites, I swear by ALLAH to make you die like these rabbits,
one minute only after you inhale the gas.
Judging from the rabbits’ reaction, the gas must be a nerve agent.
The number of containers, if not a bluff, indicates ability to produce a
considerable amount of this gas. Deployment could be by means of a
smoke generator placed in the target area, an explosion, possibly a
suicide one, of a ”chemmed” car, or simply by using a humidifier.
This alarming video poses many serious questions: Who is this
brigade? What will NATO’s reaction be if this was proven to be a rebel
group? Is this going to be used a false alarm in a pretext to justify
war against Syria? How did these chemicals reach this brigade? Is Tekkim
or the Turkish Government going to comment on this? How is this related
to the defeat of rebel fighters in the airport battle? Questions left
unanswered at the moment, until we see more of what is likely to be a
horrific chapter of the Syrian conflict.
Editor’s Note: Now would be a good time to recall US’ informant, codename “Curveball”
– the man who provided the US with baseless “intelligence” regarding
Iraq’s chemical weapons capabilities which were gladly used as a false
pretense for a war that has left millions dead, mutilated, displaced,
poisoned, or otherwise affected. If chemical weapons are deployed in
Syria, it will be by NATO-backed terrorists who acquired them from
looted Libyan stockpiles, or apparently, perhaps Turkish supplied
chemical precursors. While the White House cites baseless, nameless
“officials,” here we see a video – not conclusive evidence, but by far
