BRAD MERRIMAN – JOURNALIST/TACDNEWS – UN Secretary General Ban-Ki-Moon announced today that if UN weapons inspectors find that the Assad Regime is actually responsible for the use of chemical weapons on its own people, that this will warrant an international response. This comes after a week of maneuvering by the Russian government to prevent any military actions against it’s ally, Syria. The Russian government today did request the Assad Regime place its stockpile of chemical weapons under UN control to stave off a possible military strike. It is believed the Syrian government is in possession of a stockpile of hundreds of tons of chemical weapons. John Kerry went public acknowledging that even though it is almost impossible, he would welcome the Syrian government’s turning over of it’s chemical weapons stockpile.
This week, the Obama administration will ask for Congressional approval for military strikes against the Assad Regime. Bashir-Al-Assad has denied that he used chemical weapons against his own people in a gas attack that killed more than a thousand outside Damascus on August 21st.
