Assad hiding WMDs in Alawite enclave, report

syria map latakiaAs the removal of Syria’s chemical stockpile drags on, President Bashar al-Assad has been accused of stockpiling advanced weaponry – including chemical and biological arms – in the heartland of his Alawite sect, according to The Sunday Times this week.

The The Sunday Times report, which relies on Israeli and Syrian sources, claims that Iranian and North Korean experts are helping the regime upgrade its chemical weapons, and that Assad’s regime has chosen to keep the chemical and biological weapons in case Syria is split into several parts .

The report comes as fears grow after the Syrian regime missed a deadline to hand over all his chemical weapons for destruction. A second deadline may also be missed, a source speaking to the newspaper said. “Syria has given up only about 4 percent of its chemical weapons arsenal, will miss this week’s deadline to send all toxic agents abroad for destruction, and probably will miss the June 30 deadline when the entire 1,300 tons of lethal chemical weapons were due to be destroyed,” one of the sources was quoted as saying to The Sunday Times.

Sources believe that some of the weapons, particularly chemical warheads for missiles and artillery shells, are being hidden along the coast around Latakia up to the Turkish border. “Down the line, Assad is doomed,” an unnamed Russian expert told The Times. “His plan B, C, and D is to retreat to the Alawite enclave and try to protect the Alawite community.”

An Israeli military intelligence source told the newspaper that Assad has recently stepped up efforts to guard the enclave.

“This region is now totally fortified and isolated from the rest of Syria … The most advanced weapons manufactured in Syria and imported from Russia are kept there,” the source was quoted as saying.

Last week , the second Geneva conference drew to a close with no solution to stop the violence in Syria.

The Alawites represent about 12% of the Syrian population of about 22 million.

    A one year food supply for those alawites in that region would be much better than the stockpile of WMD.

    Article sources: Ynet 2.2.14 Israel and Israel owned Sunday Times say:
    *Assad is doomed ; an unamed Russian expert – *
    Time of London quotes – Israeli and Russian- (more official) sources as saying:
    *Syrian leader helped by North Correa and Iran.* (axes of evil)

    *..and probably will miss the June deadline..*

    So we MUST invade before Assad meets his deadline, a child can find it funny..I wouldn’t believe a thing Netanyahu and Israel says..Netanuahu goeged GWBush into War with Iraq with false intel. After 4 War invasions, this same trick is becoming a running gag. The treath to World Peace is Israel, now allied with the other treath to World peace, the Saoudis

            Very funny, no i won’t take it i preffer the birds :))

          2. Sorry I was not being completely honest, that was me 10 years ago, oh well, no chance of getting a hug from barabie either, I see a downey arrow from her….too bad cause I am married but available :):)…..running for my helmet and a shelter now.

          3. Birds of a feather flock together! I can’t believe I gave u respect and trust and all u did was betray and connive. It is really sad coz I honestly from the bottom of my heart liked u and wanted to believe u were fair and honest but u have proven over and over that to not be the case. Good luck with ur racist idiotic hind legs

          4. Barabie, please think this over and a little slower. First and formost I am sorry if offended and hurt you, I know that you have a warm side to me and I think you know that deep inside I am a friend too. I have a sense of humor that you are not used to but please know that I make fun of myself and never mention anyone else in a negative manner, if I include others as I do of the prophetttt it is done to laugh together as friends. If you know me better you would be certain that I only joke with people I feel I can be friends with. my record holds up as someone who does not partake in the failures of politics and sectarianism. if I am friendly to others it is not based on agreement with their political views. If you want to continue talking let me know, I dont want to hurt or offend you ,,,never did !!

          5. Brother don’t worry about her and you don’t need to explain yourself. Some people just don’t know how to take a joke. If need someone to pay out on in the name of fun, by all means. I am more than happy to be on the receiving end.

          6. Bless your heart Farq. I do appreciate you!

          7. Bro, you deserve every nice thing said about you.

            Hope you and yours are well too. As for my participation,It’s limited to the fun part (no more politics for me),and especially when my dear friend Geo keeps getting in trouble. I do find it amusing that He keeps getting in trouble with fine ladies of yalibnan.I guess that’s what happens to good looking guys. LOL

          19. Yep. old Geo sure is a ladies man. Well it should be no surprise, he does have a way with birds. I’m glad your doing well.

            Well, actually Hind … in mulling over the ‘bed forum’ concept with The Glen … I was thinking, since we don’t seem to be finding any answers to getting Lebanon on a better or right track, and since we are all such ‘friends’ anyway …
            Geo’s POOL would be a great place to ‘meet and greet’ in the most natural ways ;-), and he says it’s warm and comfortable enough for everyone. :-))
            Huggies …

          28. Have you ever been to florida 5th? when I used to visit on vacation I thought it was paradise if only it had mountains, since I moved here all I ever do is work 24/7 and trust me for less than for what locals get on welfare staying home watching decay of society reality shows. I preserve my sanity by massive distractions but when I do stop and look around there is a lot to appreciate about where I live. wild life alone is something to appreciate.

            Hi Geo. And yes, did the ‘Disney & Canaveral’ Experien$$e (in a less-stressful ‘what-is-a-Muslim’-time-period’ 😉 with wife and kids packed in a van – rented a ‘safe condo’ barely above water in a walled-in ‘safe community’ with an unheated community pool to splash around in – and a guard on a gate. The locals immediately said ‘You must be Canadians’ because the kids thought it was great and we had it to ourselves. I watched out for alligators … while the kids turned blue in the water. I told them if they wanted to see Disney again, they could bring their own kids, :-))))
            But I was a ‘camping freak’ – went through 2 vans – coast to coast north and south of the 79th. Kids got some education whether they wanted it or not.
            (VERY LITTLE democracy until age 17 … hehehehe)
            Did NOT see EVERY State or every nook and cranny – Saw some of every Province – it’s a big continent … early discoveries showed that Yankees don’t know what ‘camping’ really is … hard to drive tent-pegs in a paved ‘camp-site’ made for a shiny-metal Airstream … Better in Canada, just don’t put food in a tent – it attracts bears. ‘Survival Lessons’ from ‘Dad’ were not always appreciated, especially in far-north areas …. hehehe … and you know how wives can raise an eyebrow … sometimes I had to give in. (Girls in Van – tough guys in tent; Motel 6 in USA WITH warm showers – although nothing wakes one faster than the quick splash of clean water from a glacier-fed river or cool lakes at the edge of the tree-line.) ;-))))
            Memories from a time and place of no restrictions on ‘adventures in paradise’ – beyond what a wallet could produce, of course. A time when ‘driving’ was ‘half the fun’ and kept us ‘free’. When the kids escaped the dictatorship by getting summer jobs, the adventures devolved to ‘fly and rent-a-car’ expeditions. Some places in the world, and perhaps advancing age, require different survival lessons. I didn’t return to Florida. Yet. :-)))))

            Barabie, You totally overreacted to geo’s sense of humor. There is no way geo would have meant to hurt you or device you ,or anyone, for that matter. Having yo navigate all the landmines between you and hind was and still is a challenge to everyone. Having met geo personally, I know that He has no bad bone in his body. He could not have been disrespectfull to you . I can see how you could have misunderstood his humor,and you should’ve been careful before you passed such a judgment on him.I don’t beat around the bush,I just tell it as it is,and I hope you can understand my straightforwardness.

    Do you remember me dictating to you about assads plan ABC and how he intended from the start to turn the uprisings sectarian?? What did you call me again emotional?? Story of my life bud.

    Sources believe that some of the weapons, particularly chemical warheads for missiles and artillery shells, are being hidden along the coast around Latakia up to the Turkish border. “Down the line, Assad is doomed,” an unnamed Russian expert told The Times. “His plan B, C, and D is to retreat to the Alawite enclave and try to protect the Alawite community.”
