Syria takes WMD out of storage: USA - Situation is incredibly dangerous ~ link ~ I am linking several stories on this issue. Many point out the dangers of a False Flag attack on Syrian civilians by the Western backed mercenaries, with the blame being placed on Syria and that being the excuse to invade. That may well be the plan. However, I think that the actual reports of Syria dispersing and forward deploying some of its vast chemical warfare arsenal may well be correct. Syria does not want its most powerful weapons stockpiles all at known, easy to target, sites. Further, the deployment is one of the last warnings that Syria can give to NATO/Israel/GCC that it will NOT go down like Libya, it will 'give as much as it gets'! Stirling

NATO - 'Free Syrian Army' False Flag Alert: USA Claims Syria 'Moving Nerve Gas Out of Storage' ~ link ~ link ~ Citing no evidence, and on the heels of yet another baseless "activist" report claiming a massacre has taken place in Homs, nameless US officials claimed to the Wall Street Journal that the Syrian government is taking chemical weapons out of storage for possible use "against anti-regime rebels or civilians, possibly in an ethnic cleansing campaign."
Despite claiming to possess this information, the US officials refused to disclose the location these weapons were being moved to, nor the actual nomenclature of the weapons, stating only "they are most worried about Syria's stockpiles of sarin gas."
In mid-June, Russia Today had warned of a possible false-flag attack by NATO-backed militants operating under the cover of the so-called "Free Syrian Army" employing chemical weapons pilfered from devastated, militant-overrun Libya. The aim of the operation would be to create a justifiable impetus for overt Western military intervention, citing the use of chemical weapons against civilian populations as the most extreme attempt yet to manufacture otherwise nonexistent consensus for a repeat of NATO's operations in Libya.
Syrian rebels aim to use chemical weapons, blame Damascus ~ link ~ This is the RT article referred to above. Stirling
Syria: 'Moving Sarin, Cyanide Out of Storage' ~ link ~ "This is absolutely ridiculous and untrue," said Syria's foreign ministry spokesman, Jihad Makdissi, in response to the report. "If the U.S. is so well-informed, why can't they help [U.N. envoy] Kofi Annan in stopping the flow of illegal weapons to Syria in order to end the violence and move towards the political solution?"
In his second public speech since he was appointed to the head of MI6, Sawers told senior civil servants in London that MI6 agents had been actively engaged in conducting covert operations against Iran.
HINT: Let’s get serious for a moment. Most of us know by now that the Crash of ’29, as well as the Great Depression that followed, were the main events of an intricately engineered financial and economic armageddon calculated as a necessary prelude to the real Armageddon known as WWII. Historically speaking, a man without a job, or prospects for employment in his homeland, is much more likely to hire himself out to his guvment as a mercenary fighting in a foreign land. Hasn’t this been their (TPTW)* formula for both war and wealth creation for eons?! Although it has always worked like a charm, wethinks the charm has finally worn out. Yes, that old fashioned Hegelian dialectic based ‘problem – reaction – solution’ MO has seen its final days. We also think their misbegotten plan to foist WWIII upon us has somehow been thwarted by the real TPTB. Yes, they’ve finally been snoockered!
*The Powers That Were
The internet has permitted the establishment of an alternative news media much of which is thoroughly dedicated to the dissemination of real facts, unvarnished truth and heretofore secret information. Therefore, the playing field has been leveled like never before, though it is still tilted in the TPTW’s favor. As more become digitally connected and disconnect from the MSM, the old media paradigm loses power.
“They are a threat to us because they can disperse them throughout the Persian Gulf and the Arabian Sea, and it’s extremely difficult for us to track them,” he added.
Commander Harmer said that the US Navy is more accustomed to tracking large, Soviet-era nuclear-class submarines - something Iran knows well.
“Looking for small subs in shallow water is much more difficult, because the acoustics are so much more difficult - smaller makes less noise,” he stated.
