NBC News Reports Syrians Armed Chemical Weapons

A number of Syrian missiles have been loaded with the components necessary to weaponize sarin gas according to NBC News. The report also quoted American intelligence officials as having determined that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad is willing and able to use the Syrian stockpile of non-conventional weapons – the largest in the world — against his people. Reporting that the chemical agents have been “locked and loaded inside the bombs,” it now requires only that the precursor agents be mixed together to become an active chemical weapon. Warnings such as those being issued by American diplomats refer to what would happen after the chemical weapons were used, seemingly because there is no way to prevent their use if Assad decides to deploy them. The United Nations has withdrawn its personnel from Syria because of the inherent danger.
