Monday 05 Aug 2013- Nuclear strikes on Syria: The genie is already out of the bottle
The fight against Assad’s brutal regime has taken an unexpected turn late Thursday afternoon when a large weapons cache belonging to the so-called national protection force in Homs city, an arm of Assad’s Shabeeha, was destroyed. The explosion was reminiscent of the attack on Qasyoon mountain, a stronghold for the Syrian army and a location said to house missiles targeting Israel.
It was first reported that the missile fuelling station had blown up which seemed like a reasonable proposition especially since an ammunition depot was targeted.
But the two explosions in Homs and Qasyoon share the same property: They are both above ground air bursts according to Greg Thielmann, an expert on arms control policy whom I spoke with on Saturday at great length. I was first alerted to the connection by slow twitter chatter right after the bombing in Homs.
Needless to say I was shocked at what he told me next: “The fact of the matter is, what we are seeing in both these cases is a tactical nuclear strike, probably by cruise missiles launched from aircrafts near the borders of Syria or right off the coast in the Mediterranean.”
But sure, Greg, wouldn’t this mean a nuclear holocaust? Not so he says. “Tactical nuclear weapons lower the threshold on use of a nuclear bomb as their modern incarnation can be tuned in yield in order to target military sites using stand off weapons without escalating by destroy surrounding civilian infrastructure.”
So, according to News Channel 4 and experts, this was a nuclear attack as shown in the video below.
If so, what comes next? Jon Snow came to some excellent conclusions, including his statement to end the story: “All I know is, I’ll be spending time in my summer home in the woods for the next few weeks”, great advice for all! Is THIS why all of the US Embassies are being closed across the world?
I concluded with him that it is awfully ironic that an inhuman weapon such as nuclear weapons and chemical weapons could be used to promote human rights and freedom in the world. But the Syrian people, or at least who will remain of them after these attacks, deserve to enjoy the same freedoms enjoyed today by Iraqis.
“Don’t be so sure”, another anonymous strategist disagreed, “We are now playing with nuclear fire and the use of all these weapons of mass destruction will definitely attract a counterattack with massive force. We are now on a slippery slope, there is no such thing as a limited nuclear strike, the retaliation will be delayed, but it is coming and god save us all when the nuclear fire spreads to our backyards.”
Spooky stuff. All I know is, I’ll be spending time in my summer home in the woods for the next few weeks.
reports of Syrian Electronic Army’s latest hit…
Hackers from the pro-President Bashar al-Assad group posted a screenshot of the Channel 4 WordPress control panel to prove they were behind the attack.
A Google cache of Jon Snow’s blog showed a fake story claiming nuclear strikes had been targeting the Syrian regime.
Some believe Channel 4 was compromised as it was running an old version of WordPress, although the Syrian Electronic Army’s typical tactic is to dupe a target into handing over login details, via spear phishing attacks.
At least one organisation fell for the fake story, with the Centre for Research on Global Research posting a story citing the false report.
It hasn’t had the same impact as the attack on the Associated Press, when the hackers used the AP Twitter feed to claim explosions had rocked the White House and President Obama was injured. That sent the Dow Jones tumbling by over 140 points.
“Channel 4 can confirm Jon Snow’s blog was hacked on Monday 5 August and as a result has been taken down,” said a statement from the broadcaster. “It will be kept offline while security around it is reviewed,. We hope to have it back online very soon.”
