Please, God, let this not be true

Source

“Senior Libyan rebel “officers” sold Hizballah and Hamas thousands of chemical shells from the stocks of mustard and nerve gas that fell into rebel hands when they overran Muammar Qaddafi’s military facilities in and around Benghazi, debkafile’s exclusive military and intelligence sources report. Word of the capture touched off a scramble in Tehran and among the terrorist groups it sponsors to get hold of their first unconventional weapons.

According to our sources, the rebels offloaded at least 2,000 artillery shells carrying mustard gas and 1,200 nerve gas shells for cash payment amounting to several million dollars.

US and Israeli intelligence agencies have tracked the WMD consignments from eastern Libya as far as Sudan in convoys secured by Iranian agents and Hizballah and Hamas guards. They are not believed to have reached their destinations in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip, apparently waiting for an opportunity to get their deadly freights through without the US or Israel attacking and destroying them.

It is also not clear whether the shells and gases were assembled upon delivery or were travelling in separate containers. Our sources report that some of the poison gas may be intended not only for artillery use but also for drones which Hizballah recently acquired from Iran.

Words fail me.

Obama merely failed.

Again.

I’m going to have to go with a “wait and see if this true” on this one.

IF this is true and IF Hezbollah is stupid enough to use nerve and mustard gas on Israel, I’d expect that the IDF response would be swift, terrible and pretty much final.

Just sayin’….

Im sure Ogabe’s force of personality would prevent the Israelis from retaliating – as in going completely batshit insane and leveling cities. Dear Heavenly Father let this one not be true. Because all it’d take is one nerve gas shell going off in Israel and they’d be hard pressed to NOT turn Gaza and the West Bank into parking lots.… Read more »

1. where are the B-2’s when you need several in orbit over the AO, waiting for a target? 2. while nothing i’d want to be on the receiving end of as a civilian, my time as a 54 series back in my misspent youth tells me, even with my non-clearance level based knowledge, that this amount of ordinance is at… Read more »

A few more things to consider: Didn’t Gaddafi surrender his WMDs in 2003? If he had “rat-holed” some WMDs, I doubt that Obongo and the democrats would pass up this opportunity to trash Bush (yet again) for incompetence. Also, if U.S. forces intercepted these shipments, it would be a chance for Obongo to score political points by showing that “He’s… Read more »

If it weren’t for the inevitable loss of innocent human life in Israel I’d wish it were true, but even seeing those paleosimian barbarian swine exterminated in retaliation isn’t worth the death of one single Israeli. Instead, I vote that we pre-emptively terminate the problem without waiting for yet another atrocity from the saracen hordes to provide us with justification.… Read more »

Well this is defiantly a “historic” presidency. No president in history has so badly screwed up every single thing they did. No president in history has so destabilized the world. Only 1 other president in history has so badly damaged the economy and even he didn’t do it out of active malice.

It would be worth it if it saved even more Israeli lives in the future. It would also be worth it just to tell the Palestinian scum, “pass some candy out over this, motherfuckers.”

This will get the same level of investigation and reporting as did Saddam’s bio/chem weapons skulking across the Syrian border just before Operation Iraqi Freedom–i.e., none. Debka had that reasonably well documented and it certainly made more sense than anything else that has ever been reported on the issue. I have no doubt that Assad is sitting on those weapons… Read more »

Response to Emperor Misha I @:
Couldn’t agree more. If we can locate the convoy and if the weapons are not yet assembled (the latter if is the biggest), we should bomb the ever-lovin’ fuck out of it. If the Persians are guarding it-that’s just too damn bad. Boo fuckin’ hoo.

Oh yeah, and if the “rebels” we’re helping are the ones who sold it to them, we should pull every soldier, sailor, airman, marine, and every piece of equipment we have in, on, or over Libya out. Right now. Let Khadaffi have his way with them, and make sure everyone knows why.
