‘Pentagon steps up planning for military intervention in Syria’
Washington: The Pentagon has stepped up planning for potential military intervention in the Syrian civil war.
The move comes specifically because of growing evidence the Syrian regime may have used chemical weapons. According to CNN, a senior administration official said that ‘there is intensified planning underway as more precise evidence has come that the Syrian regime used chemical weapons’. If President Barack Obama were to order action, it could involve thousands of US troops. The official said it’s not likely to involve troops on the ground in Syria.Two other officials said that the most likely options would be using cruise missiles based at sea and fighter jets to try to destroy chemical sites or the headquarters of Syrian military elements linked to them, the report said.

‘Barack Obama won’t rush to act against Syria over chemical arms’
President Barack Obama signaled on Tuesday he is no rush to respond quickly to Syria’s apparent use of chemical weapons, taking a cautious approach to the country’s civil war, mirroring the views of the American public, most lawmakers and some US allies’.
Mr Obama, who last year declared that the use or deployment of chemical weapons by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad would cross a “red line,” told a White House news conference there was evidence those weapons were used, but there was still much that US intelligence agencies did not know.
“We don’t know how they were used, when they were used, who used them,” he said, and, “We don’t have a chain of custody that establishes what exactly happened.”

    Syria lashes out at chemical arms use claims

    28 April 2013

    Assad information minister describes US and British claims “inconsistent with reality and a barefaced lie”.
    Syria has dismissed US and British claims that it may have used chemical arms as a “barefaced lie” and its ally Russia has warned against using such fears to use military action.

    “Statements by the US secretary of state and British government are inconsistent with reality and a barefaced lie,” said Omran al-Zohbi, Syria’s information minister, in an interview published on Saturday on the Kremlin-funded Russia Today’s website.

    “I want to stress one more time that Syria would never use it – not only because of its adherence to the international law and rules of leading war, but because of humanitarian and moral issues,” Zohbi said.

    Zohbi spoke out as UN chief Ban Ki-moon called on Damascus to approve a UN mission of inspectors to probe the alleged use of chemical weapons in the conflict that erupted in March 2011.

    But Zohbi told Russia Today television station that Syria could not trust UN inspectors from Britain and the United States.


    “We also do not trust their qualifications. Their aim is to juggle with facts.” he said.

    “We won’t mind if Russians would be among the experts; quite the contrary, we only welcome this idea. We are quite sure in their high qualification and ability to clearly see into such matters.”

    Russia and China have blocked several UN Security Council draft resolutions that threatened sanctions against President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

    US President Barack Obama said on Friday that using chemical weapons would be a “game-changer”, after the US, Israel and Britain cited signs that Assad’s regime had used the deadly agent sarin.

    But Obama said Washington must act prudently and establish exactly if, how and when such arms might have been used. He promised a “vigorous” US and international investigation into the latest reports.

    British Prime Minister David Cameron said the growing evidence that Assad had turned chemical agents on his own people was extremely serious.

    Mikhail Bogdanov, Russia’s deputy foreign minister and Middle East envoy, urged against using these reports for military intervention.

    Military success

    “We must check the information immediately and in conformity with international criteria, and not use it to achieve other objectives,” he said in Beirut.

    “It must not be a pretext for an intervention in Syria.”

    Zohbi said in comments published by the Interfax news agency on Friday that chemical weapons were used by opposition fighters and originated in Turkey.

    He linked the chemical arms accusations to what he said was the recent military success of regime forces.

    “There are qualitative changes on the battlefields,” Zohbi was quoted as saying by the RIA Novosti news agency.

    “The uproar from the Americans that has arisen in the last 48 hours is due to this.”

    Reuters news agency reported that amateur video appeared to show aerial bombardments on opposition strongholds around Syria’s capital Damascus.

    Assad gains

    Assad’s forces appeared to have made gains across Syria in recent weeks, Reuters reported.

    They have advanced around Damascus and the border with Lebanon, areas that help link the capital to coastal provinces dominated by Assad’s Alawite minority.

    The rumours about the use of chemical arms came from the Israeli intelligence last week. The service claimed that ‘elements of the Syrian Army loyal to President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons to murder civilians in Aleppo’.
