Síria – Mapas e armas químicas

In Business Insider:

“The U.S., despite lack of U.N. approval and growing demands for legal justifications, is determined to strike Syria in response to an Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack attributed to the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Earlier we posted a Reuters map that listed the U.S., British, and French forces and bases that are positioned near Syria. But that doesn’t tell the whole story, since it does not illustrate what those assets are threatening.

So we added to it with information from maps created by Foreign PolicyAgence France-Presse, the Institute for the Study of WarThe Telegraph and two via BBC in addition to highlighting U.S. military bases in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. “

Here’s what the Western assets in the arena currently look like:

Toda a lógica de uma situação como a que se passa na Síria altera-se em instantes pelos ataques químicos lançados, quase de certeza, pelo presidente, contudo já morreram desde 2011 milhares de pessoas pela guerra civil, sem armas químicas. Quem vendeu essas armas químicas? Mesmo produzidas a nível nacional (duvido), onde arranjaram as matérias primas? Ontem pensei que a teoria mais básica apontaria a Rússia, tiveram sempre do lado do presidente e já se sabia que vendiam lá armas, pediram aos Estados Unidos para que não houvesse intervenção e talvez agora com o caso Snowden se tenha criado uma moeda de troca para os Estados Unidos e U.E. finalmente entrarem na Síria. Contudo a situação é dúbia mas alguém vendeu… hoje deparei-me com a averiguação dos ataques por parte do Reino Unido.. será que se vão importar com a fonte?


The British government will publish Thursday some of its intelligence related to the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria, British Prime Minister David Cameron’s office said Thursday.

The announcement comes a day after U.S. President Barack Obama said there’s no doubt that Syria launched chemical weapons attacks against its own people.

Western countries are mulling possible military action against Syrian forces after the alleged chemical assault near Damascus on August 21. Death toll estimates range from several hundred to 1,300.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime has blamed rebels for the attack, a claim that Obama said was impossible.

“We have looked at all the evidence, and we do not believe the opposition possessed … chemical weapons of that sort,” he told “PBS NewsHour” Wednesday.

“We do not believe that, given the delivery systems, using rockets, that the opposition could have carried out these attacks. We have concluded that the Syrian government in fact carried these out. And if that’s so, then there need to be international consequences.”

A team of U.N. weapons inspectors is in Syria trying to determine whether chemical weapons were used. The inspectors are expected to leave Syria by Saturday morning, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said Thursday, according to Ban’s spokesman.

Opinion: Why western intervention in Syria will leave chaos

Britain’s Parliament will vote on a motion Thursday that would rule out any possible military action until the U.N. inspectors reveal their findings to the U.N. Security Council. Afterward, the British Parliament will take another vote.

But Syria tried to proactively thwart any British military action by writing a letter to U.K. lawmakers.

On Thursday, British members of parliament received an open letter from the Syrian government urging them not to take any military action against Syria, the press office for House of Commons Speaker John Bercow said.

Those who claimed to have survived the alleged chemical weapons attack described a horrific scene in the town of Zamalka.

“After the chemicals, they woke us up and told us to put masks on,” a 6-year-old boy said, describing the alleged attack.

“I told my dad I can’t breathe. My father then fainted and I fainted right after that, but we were found and taken to the emergency room.”

CNN obtained video of the boy and others who made the claims to a journalist in the area.
