An alleged audio recording of a phone conversation between two members of the Free Syrian Army contains details of a plan to carry out a chemical weapons attack capable of impacting an area the size of one kilometer.
The conversation is featured at the end of the YouTube clip above. The video also contains footage of western-backed FSA rebels announcing their intention to carry out chemical weapons attacks while surrounded with bottles of nitric acid and other substances.
In addition, the clip features victims of yesterday’s chemical weapons incident in Aleppo, which the White House is reluctant to acknowledge even happened, blaming Syrian rebels for the attack.
The recording of the phone conversation purports to be between two FSA militants, one inside Syria and one outside of the country. Abu Hassan, the militant inside Syria, asks the person on the other end of the line to transmit a message to Sheikh Suleiman, a rebel-seized army base in Aleppo, asking for “two chemical bombs ….phosphoric” in order to “finish this whole thing.”
“I want them to be effective,” states Hassan, adding, “The radius of the strike, or reach of the gases, has to be 1km.”
The use of white phosphorus as a weapon is banned by the Third Convention on Conventional Weapons and as such is a war crime.
The clip also shows some form of nerve gas or poison being used against rabbits, mirroring a video released last year which showed rebels killing rabbits after dispersing an unidentified chemical weapon into a glass box.
Evidence clearly indicating that NATO-backed rebels have planned and carried out attacks using chemical weapons in Syria is important because it was this very scenario that the Obama administration said represented its “red line” on military intervention in Syria.
However, the fact that the biological attacks are seemingly being prepared and launched by FSA militants and not by Bashar Al-Assad’s troops exposes a fundamental hypocrisy that lies at the heart of western support for insurgents who have repeatedly carried out terrorist attacks against innocent civilians.
In the aftermath of yesterday’s chemical weapons rocket attack in Aleppo which killed up to 25 people, including 16 Syrian soldiers, the US government denied that chemical weapons had been used once it became clear that US-backed rebels were responsible for the incident. Israeli intelligence sources confirming that chemical weapons had indeed been deployed did nothing to shift the Obama administration’s position.
A Reuters photographer who witnessed the attack said victims, “were suffering breathing problems and that people had said they could smell chlorine after the attack,” adding that the victims mostly comprised of women and children.
Despite overwhelming indications that the chemical weapons attack was the work of the armed opposition, Britain and France paradoxically seized upon the incident to push for the EU to relax a ban on arming the rebels.
As we have exhaustively documented, western support for the FSA is intensifying despite the fact that the rebels are being led by Al-Qaeda terrorists who routinely commit beheadings, ransack Christian churches, conduct terrorists bombings against innocent people, all while burning US flags and chanting anti-American slogans while singing the praises of Osama Bin Laden.
