Obama helped build this. The rebel bastards are the ones that Obama supports. You know, enemies of America. The same Muslim scum the Muzzie loving sumanabitch and his tribe supported in Egypt and Libya. Tell us again how well Obama’s Arab Spring is working out for Christians and non Muslims. Ask Ambassador Chris Stevens and the men Obama abandoned in Benghazi.
Syrian rebels have used a rocket containing chemical substances in the conflict, killing 25 people and injuring 86, says Syria’s Information Minister. Reports say most of the casualties killed in the attack in the flashpoint city of Aleppo were civilians.
Syrian government’s SANA news agency reported that terrorists fired a rocket containing chemical substances in the Khan al-Assal area of rural Aleppo and confirmed that at least 25 people, most of them civilians, were killed.
Syria’s Information Minister Omran al-Zoabi stated Turkey and Qatar bore “legal, moral and political responsibility” for the “dangerous escalation” in violence because of their support of rebel groups fighting to oust President Bashar Assad. He decried the incident as the interim government’s “first act.”
Syrian rebel commander, Qassim Saadeddine, immediately denied the accusations and claimed the Syrian regime had launched SCUD missiles containing chemical agents on Khan al-Assal.

Reports of the weapons seizure came after days of brutal clashes between opposition and government forces. Read more…
