SYRIA READY TO USE CHEMICAL WEAPONS AND RUSSIAN ATTACK HELICOPTERS TO MASSACRE EVEN MORE PEOPLE
July 14 2012
Damascus, Syria – On the heels of a massive new slaughter in Syria, it appears that the Assad government has once again stepped up its efforts to combat the ever-increasing violence in the country with a new shipment of Russian-made attack helicopters and chemical weapons.
The latest influx of weapons will, most believe, heavily upset the balance between the two forces and push the resistance fighters back even further than they already are. Russia, the principle ally of the Assad regime, has sent a freighter carrying the helicopters while the chemical weapons – including cyanide, sarin, and mustard gas – were already well on hand.
It’s believed the chemical weapons are to replace the many bullets and rockets they have been using to destroy cities across the country and save on the costs associated with replacing boots damaged when used to stomp on children.
It is believed that Syria has the world’s largest supply of chemical weapons so they won’t be running out any time soon.
“The fleet will be sent on task to guarantee the safety of our ships, to prevent anyone interfering with them in the event of a blockade. I remind you, there are no limits,” said Russian defence official Vyacheslav Dzirkaln of the shipment they are making to the country.
They did make it clear that the helicopters were actually Syrian property and were merely being returned to them at their time of need.
Already present helicopters were used to kill more than 200 people yesterday while the chemical weapons have not been used thus far.
“This is certainly what one would call an escalation, no doubt about that. This is pretty much exactly what an escalation is, bringing all kinds of new weapons into the fight. I mean it could be just a result of the Syrian government wanting to streamline the process because it’s certainly not going to make them kill any more than they have been which probably isn’t possible. This is just a way to make killing civilians cleaner, more bang for the buck,” said Scrape TV International Conflict analyst Mario Martinez. “Obviously they are trying to finally put an end to all of this fighting which is exactly what the world wants. It’s really hard to see why anyone would object to this because bringing in attack helicopters and chemical weapons will certainly stop the fighting pretty darned quick I would think.”
Thus far the United States has voiced an objection over the helicopter shipments but no one has said much about the chemical weapons which are currently being moved to areas presumably more effective for distribution.
“With all this arrayed against the rebels it would really be kind of foolish of them to continue to fight. This is their chance to get out alive and it’s been made pretty clear that this is the way things are going to be so if they don’t stop with all their fighting, well, then they are really only going to get what they deserve," contninued Martinez. "Stop now and you get out alive, I think that’s the lesson here for everyone.”
No rebel forces or children have yet given up.
