Western-led full-scale war looms. Nothing civil about Syria's war. Washington planned it years ago.

News from Syria is grim. Libya 2.0 looms. Fabricating a chemical weapons threat looks like pretext for full-scale war.
On December 8, the Toronto Sun said Foreign Affairs officials urged Canadian citizens to leave Syria. Maybe they know something they're not explaining.
On December 9, Israel National News said the London Sunday Times said IDF special forces now operate inside Syria. Allegedly they're trying to locate "non-conventional weapons" and "sabotage" them.
Israel considered ground and/or air attacks to destroy them. Perhaps they're still planned. The Sunday Times said if evidence suggests Assad used chemical weapons, Washington and Israel "might coordinate to carry out a ground invasion."
An unnamed military source told the Times that US forces could be ready "rapidly within days" if chemical weapons are used. "The muscle is already there to be flexed."
On December 9, The Times of Israel headlined "Syrian rebels claim new video shows victims of chemical attack."
A You Tube clip depicts alleged victims. It shows dead and injured Syrians with disfigured faces. Assad is blamed.
Days earlier, a You Tube video showed Syrian insurgents testing chemical weapons on lab rabbits. Threats to use them against Assad loyalists followed.
Lab equipment and chemical containers were shown. Some containers bore the Turkish chemical company Tekkim name.
An Arabic text wall poster read, "The Almighty Wind Brigade (Kateebat A Reeh Al Sarsar)."
A man shown begins mixing chemicals in a beaker. It emits gas. Rabbits in a glass box have convulsions, collapse and die. The audio states:
"You saw what happened. This will be your fate, you infidel Alawites. I swear by Allah to make you die like these rabbits, one minute after you inhale the gas."
Earlier reports said insurgents were given gas masks. They suggested a possible chemical attack coming blamed on Assad.
