U.S. preparing for worst-case chemical weapons scenario in Syria

The 150 U.S. troops that have been sent to Jordan are preparing for aworst-case scenario involving Syria’s large arsenal of chemicalweapons. The depots are well guarded by the forces of the regime ofSyria’s president Bashar al-Assad, and they’re protected from the airby Russian-built anti-aircraft defenses. However, a major fear isthat a collapse of the al-Assad regime would allow these chemicalweapons to fall into the hands of al-Qaeda linked terrorists, in thesame way that the Muammar Gaddafi’s huge stores of weapons fell intothe hands of al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). The U.S. isproceeding cautiously, applying lessons learned from faultyintelligence about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq that led theU.S. to the 2003 Iraq ground invasion, only to discover that therewere no WMDs after all.

U.N. Security Council passes resolution on plan for military intervention in Mali

The United Nations Security Council on Friday unanimously passed aresolution giving West African nations 45 days to offer details of aplan for international military intervention in Mali, where al-Qaedalinked terrorists Ansar Dine have taken control of the northern 2/3rdsof the country. The Economic Community of West African States(ECOWAS) has offered to send a force of 3,000 soldiers to stabilizeMali when the U.N. gives its approval. Concern is growing thatentrenched control of Mali by al-Qaeda linked forces would turn Maliinto a failed state like Afghanistan. France is leading the West inattempting to gain U.N.S.C. support for military intervention, becauseFrance fears terrorist attacks from entrenched al-Qaeda control ofMali. VOA

Bizarre Nobel Peace Prize selection goes to ‘European Union’

It’s been years since the Nobel Peace Prize was related in any way toreality. Bizarre choices of Nobel prizes in the recent past includePaul Krugman (economics), Al Gore (peace) and Barack Obama (peace) –ideological choices that thrilled the far left, but choices of peoplewho really haven’t accomplished much of anything. On Friday, theNobel Peace Prize was awarded to the “European Union,” a choice thatappears to continue the pattern of high farce. In Europe, there areplenty of people who are “anti-EU,” and plenty of people who areside you were on, but nobody seriously believed that the choice mademuch sense, especially nowadays, when the European Union is comingapart at the seams. Defenders of the choice claimed that the decisionto form a European Union prevented a new war between Germany andFrance, a claim that’s totally fatuous. NATO deserves the prize morethan the European Union does. And on top of everything else, theNobel Prize committee resides in Norway, a European country which is,however, NOT part of the European Union, since its population isopposed to joining. This may well be because Norway has becomewealthy because of North Sea oil, and may not wish to share its wealthwith Greece and Spain, a decision that Germany and Austria may wishthey had taken as well.
