I originally thought that the criminal US President stood alone in making that outrageous and totally false assertion against the Syrian government... But lo and behold, according to this report from the CTV online news service, at www.ctvnews.ca, it appears that the criminal and equally Jewish butt kissing Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, came out immediately after Barry Soetoro's false claim to say that "evidence" shows Assad has used chemical weapons as well! Here is that CTV news article for everyone to see for themselves, and I do have my own thoughts and comments to follow:
Evidence shows Assad has used chemical weapons, Harper says
Harper made the remarks in France, where he is meeting with French President Francois Hollande to discuss a Canada-Europe free trade pact.
The U.S. had announced Thursday it now has conclusive proof Assad has used chemical weapons, including the nerve-agent sarin, against opposition forces.
"We share the view of our allies, I think, based on the evidence before us, that there have been uses of chemical weapons in Syria by the regime," Harper said Friday.
"And as you know, the position of Canada on the regime is clear: we want to see Assad depart power and we want to see a regime that is representative of the entire population of Syria, which the Assad regime, in its present form, can never be."
U.S. President Barack Obama has repeatedly said the use of chemical weapons would represent a "red line" in the ongoing conflict, and on Thursday he authorized arming the Syrian rebels.
It isn't clear how the U.S. will accomplish that plan, however, and Harper said he still has concerns about sending weapons and ammunition.
"I think our concerns about the risks on both sides are shared also by our allies," Harper said.
Liberal foreign affairs critic Bob Rae said it was unlikely Canada would “get in the business of arming the rebels,” but said the West has failed to take an effective stand against Assad.
“I think the last year (in Syria) has been an incredible tragedy,” he told CTV’s Power Play. “We have not even been modestly successful in dealing with Assad.”
A United Nations report released Thursday said at least 93,000 people have now been killed in the two-year conflict.
On Friday, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said the U.K. has also concluded that Assad has used chemical weapons, including sarin gas.
France has also put forward evidence that it says proves chemical evidence has been used and has called for inspectors to be given unfettered access to sites in the war-torn country.
Turkey also issued a statement Friday saying the U.S. report corroborates its own findings on Syria. Ankara called on the international community to "unite and openly manifest its stance" against Assad.
Hague said in a statement that the crisis calls for a strong and co-ordinated response, adding that the international community must "be prepared to do more."
However, Russian President Vladimir Putin's foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, said the evidence Russia has seen "didn't look convincing."
Security expert Eric Margolis said the situation is volatile because while the U.S. backs the rebels, Russia supports Assad.
In fact, while the U.S. has discussed arming the rebels, the Russians have approved sending missiles to the Assad regime.
"It's a claim by the U.S. government, which is fueling one side of the war in Syria. And on the other side the Russian government, which supports the government in Syria, has denounced these reports as fabrications and brought up the fake reports from the Iraq wars. We have concerns," Margolis told CTV's Canada AM.
Before travelling to Paris, Harper was in London earlier this week where he addressed British Parliament for around 30 minutes.
His speech focused mostly on economic issues but he also raised the situation in Syria.
NTS Notes: I have been slamming the American public for the last few days for continuing to put up with their criminal President and his cronies in Washington... But it now appears that it is no different in this country, Canada, as well with the sick Prime Minister and his cronies occupying Ottawa.....
When I read this article for the first time, I honestly wanted to puke..... Harper states that he is supporting arming the rebels in Syria based on the "evidence" of Assad using chemical weapons.... What "evidence" is that, Stephen? All evidence everywhere shows conclusively that it is the REBELS who have been using US bought and paid for chemical weapons, and absolutely NOT the Syrian government... So again... What "evidence", Stephen???
This ridiculous assertion by the criminal Prime Minister of Canada shows again how much of a Jew butt kisser he truly is.... The Jews want the US, and now Canada as well, to send forces over to fight and die in a new war against Syria, all for their glorious and evil sick nation of Israel....
Yes, at one time I used to think of my country, Canada, as being a true beacon of peace on this planet. Now with this nutcase in Ottawa following his Jewish masters' orders, I know differently....
I will state it right here for all Canadians: Stephen Harper is a LIAR, and is leading this nation down the road to ruination with his constant sucking up to the criminal Jews who control this nation....
A final message to all Canadians... Do NOT fall for this lie by Stephen Harper and his criminal regime... The Syrian government and the nation of Syria is not our enemy......But the sick nation of Israel that borders it truly is!
More to come
