16 September 2013: Saudi Arabian, Lebanese and Israeli newspapers are all reporting this morning that Syria has either transferred or is in the process of transferring chemical weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon, to Russian ships in Syrian ports and back to Iraq under Iranian Quds force guard from whence they came prior to the 2003 start of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The Saudi Al-Watan newspaper reports that the shipment to Iraq is occurring with the full knowledge of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki. It is unknown at this time if these reports are part of a full-scale Sunni propaganda campaign against their Shi'a-Alawi enemies or if they are essentially factual. At a minimum, if the transfer of Syrian WMD to Hezbollah is factual then a red line set by Israel will have been crossed and a very significant military response from Israel will be forthcoming without further notice.
11 September 2013: Based upon new intelligence the crisis in Syria is in the process of deepening exponentially as you read this. A just received report transmitted at 0100 this morning and which originated with a senior Lebanese military officer states unequivocally that Syria is actively in the process of transferring a significant amount of its chemical weapons arsenal to Hezbollah. The source reports these Syrian chemical warfare agents are doing directly into Hezbollah's Bekaa Valley storage bunkers. Expect an Israeli response at any moment.
