I smell propaganda.
2. My modest proposal to end crisis.

Syria was a Sultanate for 1000 years ruled by the Damascus Sultan. OK, they have tried what a modern republic is, but failed. Now then back to the roots, nominate Assad as I. Bashar to the throne and everything will be changed. Peace and happiness will come back to Syria !

4. For those who hate Israel
Bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (12.24.12)
and ask why the US should give aid to Israel, notice the allied troop's are, IDF, American's and ( surprise, ) the French who are doing what the Muslims can't do, secure the true WMD's and work together for the good of the people they don't represent. Bravo to them.!
5. Propaganda and if it isnt...
Spengler ,   US   (12.24.12)
One has to do the math here. What is the need to use chemical weapons when you can kill at will? And in the event it is bening used,, since when did the Occident begin to have sympathy for Al-Qeada?

too bad you aren't a resident of Syria and therefore cannot vote for him. Thinking of moving there soon? Using serin gas ( and especially on your own defenseless people ) is never accepted by any sane person, you and he are dangerous mental cases.
7. it was inevitable
CiporaJulianna Kohn ,   Zion, Zion   (12.24.12)
the necessity to secure and extricate syria's chemical weapons was bound to become inevitable.
8. this video doesn't smell right and the smell isn't Sarin

I don't think Assad at this stage would use gas especially if all he going to do is use it against a handful of rebels. More likely this is Rebelwood. The rebels know that the west have said that they will only get involved if Assad used gas so now they are making videos of people being gassed with Sarin. This video is just to convenient with the timing and the way it was done. This was not an individual with an iPhone. There is somebody filming it and doing a pretty good job and there is somebody else asking questions ( 2 man team ). One person spat out something which may or may not have been vomit , some were probably legitimate patients as its an ER although probably not from gassing. The rest if it seemed more like interviews with patients given prompts now and again. Was it a white gas, yes it was a white gas. It has all the symptoms of Sarin and we don't have masks and proper equipment for this.

Excuse me. All I wanted was to bring some smile for Y NET readers.

- Ahmad, come to respond ! Who is your father ? - My father is, as the father of the entire syrian nation, is His Excellent Bashar al Assad, the President of the Syrian Arab Republic and the Supreme Commander of the Syrian Armed Forces ! - Very good, Ahmad, perfect. And what do you want to be ? - An orphan !

I can't believe you are here on ynet. I'm a big fan of your comments on jpost. You and sarah b would be the dynamic duo of posters on ynet. I hope you continue to share your input here, it's extremely in depth. And please keep sharing, your knowledge and input are greatly appreciated. You'll love our Sarah b. She says it like it is too! I'm so excited. I hope you had a great shabbas and shanna tova cipora. I can't wait until you and sarah b team up and put the likes ofgraczek, TaylorT, split, observer, anonymous, Robert from Australia, Bob from Australia and Arn from Sweden in their place! They spew lots of really really bad things on here and we need more Ciporas and sarah b's sharing. If only Israel had you and her running the country would Israel be stronger and more vibrant. omg this is so amazing, and I'm really excited. Chag sameach and am yisrael chai!

13. Me too I smell something....
Ginette Golden ,   Toronto, Canada   (12.25.12)
And it is not 'Sarin-like gas'. The People on the video were too quick with their shouting "Allah akbar" then there was this other one describing exactly "how he feels" and the guy vomiting... Call me a cynic but the video just did not ring true to me... On the good side of things, I am off work for one week; irrelevant to this story but still nice :-)

If this was Sarin or any similar derivative the first thing a hospital would do would be to get rid of the clothing. These derivatives will leach from the clothing for a while producing the same effects in people around them. Sarin gas is oderless and colorlesss, so it isnt sarin, and probably isnt anything other than a faked creation.
