Syrian WMD Missiles Relocated: What is Assad's Next Move?
Syria's President Assad has ordered his stockpiles of dangerous chemical weapons moved out of storage. Some missiles seem to have already been armed. Syrian fired test missiles during their recent war games staged further inland from the current fighting. The war games themselves may seem to be odd, but it is muscle flexing and meant to send a message that Syria has real power to demolish the rebel controlled areas by sending a few missiles with WMD.
The American and NATO's point of view is that Assad is only moving them out of harm's way, to make secure they are secure from rebels and terrorists. The British view is that Assad is planning to use them to take out the growing rebel fighters located in Homs, Latakia and Aleppo. What if Turkey, Israel and Jordan were to come under Syrian missile assault?
If used, the missiles would be most likely used to take out the rebel groups. What would the West do? Anything? So, far. the West has refrained.
