Broadway beware, the best shows are currently produced in the Middle East. The Iranian smile campaign was the first, but before the curtain had time to go down, another one hit the international stage – the Syrians are demolishing their stockpiles of chemical weapons. This show is so good that Secretary of State John Kerry lauded Syria on Monday, saying he was “very pleased” at the news that experts had already begun the process of destroying Syria’s chemical weapons arsenal.
In an unusual show of praise for Damascus, Kerry also gave the government of President Bashar Assad credit for quickly complying with the United Nations resolution on destroying its chemical weapons.
You don’t have to be a very experienced intelligence agent to understand that what is happening in Syria is a joke.
The Syrians understood that the world wants to be fooled and Damascus is taking full advantage of it.
The Syrians have sacrificed some tanks with chemical substances for the show. The real chemical weapons have long been buried in places that the U.N. inspectors will never reach and some of the deadly weapons have been transferred to “foreign forces” involved in the civil war.
The U.N will soon declare that Syria is clean of chemical weapons and Assad probably won’t be able to control his laughter. Yet again he managed to deceive the world, but it’s just like taking candy from a baby these days.
