Would it not be a wise act now for individuals to determine that they are going to be the victors, not the vanquished, in the great battle of life?

…save in the few who are my starry brothers.  You are the savants of immortal Life, you are the children of the One Father. Your eyes have been kindled with the vision of His rapture.  His Supremacy and Authority reigns in your being….You are employers of the flame of peace and the very powers of nature consult with you.  Let the Manchild rule, for surely we move forward together toward planetary victory.     -Jesus the Christ:  Pearl 8:43

…………………………………………………………….

Upon the golden throne of His lotus Presence He sends His sweet flame of illumination throughout the cosmos and quickens the hearts of all who will receive Him with the golden-pink joy of a permanent dawn….

Let no man take from thee thy crown; let not the leeches of the world who would drain thee of thy whole energy steal one farthing of the gleam of that golden disc of true knowing.  To thee it is given to know, to dare, to do and to be silent.  But to thee it is also given that knowing which is action and in both doing and daring to oppose when the opposition would create peace of soul but not necessarily outer peace….

Separations which men imagine do not exist–the great proximity of every man to God must be sought and acquired and when it is found, blessed ones, it must be the treasure of every man’s being.      -Gautama Buddha:  Pearl 8:44

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Let it not be implied here that the Infinite One can be known in His fulness by mere outer intelligence.  After all a teacup cannot contain the ocean, but the cup of man’s consciousness can expand to retain a great deal more of the divine Law and God-realization than ordinarily thought possible….

It must be taken into account that we live in an orderly universe and that the record of life which you have made is always the strongest support and advocate in securing help from God or man.  I know full well that many do not like to gaze upon their own record but it is upon that record that they will stand or fall….

The favor of heaven is based upon the contents of mind and heart, upon holy intent and upon the synthesis of the foregoing with action and pure realization of the wholeness of the divine plan….Self-deceit is so prevalent upon Earth, precious ones, that we must make further attempt to dispel it….In the name of heaven, blessed ones, you must accept that we do see clearly that which is acting in your worlds….You represent freedom on earth. When you understand that, your own personal freedom is given renewed impetus.    -Saint Germain:  Pearl 8:45

General Saket on Syrian Chemical Weapons

Amman, Jordan 9-16-13 //

A senior army officer and chemical-weapons specialist who defected from Bashar Al Assad’s forces says he was ordered by top regime officials to use poison gas in attacks on rebel-held areas.
“I am a witness and received orders three times to use chemical gas last year,” said Brigadier General Zaher Saket, a former commander of chemical warfare in the Syrian army’s 5th division in Sheikh Maskeen, Herak and Busr Al Harir. “But I did not implement the orders.”
Gen Saket, who defected in March this year, said there had been an escalation in the use of chemical warfare against rebels, with poison gases used on fourteen separate occasions while he was serving in the armed forces. He had been informed oftwenty other times after his defection, he said.
He described a chain of command that reached right to the highest level, with Bashar Al Assad issuing orders to the crisis cell — the close-knit group controlling the government’s response to the uprising.
Orders were then passed down to air force security, perhaps the most powerful and the most feared of Syria’s numerous secretive intelligence agencies. From there, the orders were conveyed to the army units tasked with firing chemical munitions….
Gen Saket served for six years with the 5th division’s chemical warfare unit and spent one year seconded to air force security, also dealing with chemical-weapons procedures.
Unit 450 — whose existence was detailed in a French intelligence report — is one of seven production facilities for nerve gas including sarin, he said.
“We have plenty of the nerve gas: sarin, tabun, VX and mustard gas,” he said.
Sarin, tabun and VX are all deadly nerve agents outlawed under the 1993 chemical weapons convention. Mustard gas, a blistering agent used in World War One, is also regulated under chemical weapons laws.
Three other military units — 416, 417 and 418 — were in charge of protecting, moving and storing poison gases between 32 different sites, according to Gen Saket.
Gen Saket said he received his first order in October, given by a commander he identified as Brigadier General Ali Hassan Ammar, to receive a shipment of poison gas and release it in Sheikh Maskeen, a village in Deraa province.”
“It was planned that I would place the material in a sealed explosive device with TNT and a connection to electrical power …. I did not implement the order,” he said
“I used water instead and created the impression for the officers that I was using it. I dumped the [chemical munitions] substances in a hole,” he said.
The US-Russian decommissioning programme for Syria’s chemical arsenal — thought to be one of the largest in the world — refers to 45 different locations that Moscow and Washington say need to be investigated and dismantled.

Iraq’s WMD Secreted in Syria, Sada Says
by Ira Stoll, Staff Reporter of the New York Sun | January 26, 2006.
The Iraqi general, Georges Sada, makes the charges in a new book, “Saddam’s Secrets,” released this week. He detailed the transfers in an interview yesterday with The New York Sun.  The man who served as the no. 2 official in Saddam Hussein’s air force says Iraq moved weapons of mass destruction into Syria before the war by loading the weapons into civilian aircraft in which the passenger seats were removed.
“There are weapons of mass destruction gone out from Iraq to Syria, and they must be found and returned to safe hands,” Mr. Sada said. “I am confident they were taken over.”
Mr. Sada’s comments come just more than a month after Israel’s top general during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Moshe Yaalon, told the Sun that Saddam “transferred the chemical agents from Iraq to Syria.”…
Mr. Sada, 65, told the Sun that the pilots of the two airliners that transported the weapons of mass destruction to Syria from Iraq approached him in the middle of 2004, after Saddam was captured by American troops.
“I know them very well. They are very good friends of mine. We trust each other. We are friends as pilots,” Mr. Sada said of the two pilots. He declined to disclose their names, saying they are concerned for their safety. But he said they are now employed by other airlines outside Iraq.
The pilots told Mr. Sada that two Iraqi Airways Boeings were converted to cargo planes by removing the seats, Mr. Sada said. Then Special Republican Guard brigades loaded materials onto the planes, he said, including “yellow barrels with skull and crossbones on each barrel.” The pilots said there was also a ground convoy of trucks.
The flights – 56 in total, Mr. Sada said – attracted little notice because they were thought to be civilian flights providing relief from Iraq to Syria, which had suffered a flood after a dam collapse in June of 2002.
“Saddam realized, this time, the Americans are coming,” Mr. Sada said. “They handed over the weapons of mass destruction to the Syrians.”
Mr. Sada said that the Iraqi official responsible for transferring the weapons was a cousin of Saddam Hussein named Ali Hussein al-Majid, known as “Chemical Ali.” The Syrian official responsible for receiving them was a cousin of Bashar Assad who is known variously as General Abu Ali, Abu Himma, or Zulhimawe.
Short of discovering the weapons in Syria, those seeking to validate Mr. Sada’s claim independently will face difficulty. His book contains a foreword by a retired U.S. Air Force colonel, David Eberly, who was a prisoner of war in Iraq during the first Gulf War and who vouches for Mr. Sada, who once held him captive, as “an honest and honorable man.”…
An article in the Fall 2005 Middle East Quarterly reports that in an appearance on Israel’s Channel 2 on December 23, 2002, Israel’s prime minister, Ariel Sharon, stated, “Chemical and biological weapons which Saddam is endeavoring to conceal have been moved from Iraq to Syria.” The allegation was denied by the Syrian government at the time as “completely untrue,” and it attracted scant American press attention, coming as it did on the eve of the Christmas holiday.
The Syrian ruling party and Saddam Hussein had in common the ideology of Baathism, a mixture of Nazism and Marxism.
Syria is one of only eight countries that has not signed the Chemical Weapons Convention, a treaty that obligates nations not to stockpile or use chemical weapons. Syria’s chemical warfare program, apart from any weapons that may have been received from Iraq, has long been the source of concern to America, Israel, and Lebanon. In March 2004, the director of Central Intelligence, George Tenet, testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee, saying, “Damascus has an active CW development and testing program that relies on foreign suppliers for key controlled chemicals suitable for producing CW.”  http://www.atour.com/forums/news/318.html#1

Liberating Iraq      byGeneral Georges Sada
FrontPageMagazine.com | Saturday, April 01, 2006.
This speech was delivered on March 16, 2006 at the Wednesday Morning Club. – The Editors.
Saddam is the one who killed more Kurds. In the Amfal operations, he killed 203,000 Kurds. He used chemical weapons. In Halabja, he killed 5,375 people, all women, children and old men, in one attack—only one attack. Saddam killed more officers from the Iraqi army since the army was founded in 1921. Saddam did this with the hatred that I know was in his heart. With his revenge, only God knows what he was going to do. Because he had love of power, of making Muir rockets, paying millions to make some development for rockets to go further and warheads to become more destructive and to have weapon of mass description.
At last Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. They were used against our nation in the north and south, and even against the Iranians when they penetrated the last defense lines in our terroritory. They were used by helicopters, by fighters and even by transport illusion 76, which it is not for bombing. But they were used in order to stop the invasion of Iran to the east of Basra, south of Iraq.
This is Saddam. I want all the Americans please to know what Saddam was and then to make the assessment: Was it worth it? Was it good that America took the decision to go and liberate that country by removing Saddam’s regime or not? This is a very good question also.
From what I know about Iraq and about Saddam, I am now one of the people who believes very, very, very clearly that the decision taken by this blessed nation, America, to go and liberate Iraq from the evil regime of that dictator, it was the right decision and the proper time.
I don’t want to interfere in your politics. You are a free nation. You are the nation of democracy. It’s up to you, you have got many parties. I respect everybody in this country. I love America but this is the truth as an Iraqi I want to tell you that this was a great decision. I am very sorry for those who lost their beloved ones. I know it is difficult for them. But you should remember always you have done a great job. You have done a dramatic change in that country and you have liberated 27 million people from a dictatorship regime.   http://www.atour.com/forums/news/318.html#1

5-23-13   A former scientist for the Syrian chemical weapons programme said the regime of President Bashar al-Assad has enough of the nerve agent sarin to “eradicate the whole of Damascus, Homs, Hama, and Aleppo”.   Speaking to Al Jazeera on condition of anonymity after he fled from Syria, the chemist added that the regime is not likely to unleash its chemical stockpiles unless it “no longer cares about the world knowing”.   “If the regime is to fire a Scud-B with a chemical warhead filled with sarin, the missile would create a chemical cloud in the atmosphere that is 3km long and 500m wide, which could be fatal to all people under it,” the chemist said.   He claims that the regime has only used sarin nerve gas in small quantities to halt rebel advances in four towns in the suburbs of Damascus, in Aleppo’s Sheikh Maksoud district, in Idlib’s Saraqeb town and in Homs’ al-Khalidiyeh district.   “The intention was to incapacitate rebels and force them out of strategic areas, while keeping the deaths among their ranks limited,” the chemist said, who added that he was speaking out “to dispel the myths on chemical weapons in Syria”.   Al Jazeera was able to verify his former position at the chemistry institute of the Centre for Scientific Studies and Research (CSSR), Syria’s main agency for the development and enhancement of weaponry. It has been reported that a CSSR site in the Damascus suburb of Jamraya was targeted twice earlier this year by Israeli airstrikes.

Syria’s stockpile   The Syrian government has managed to keep information about its chemical weapons largely beyond the reach of outsiders, and to keep its scientists under heavy surveillance, even keeping some under 24-hour guard.   The exiled chemist says Syria’s stockpile comprises 700 tonnes of sarin agent, at least 3,000 aerial bombs that could be filled with chemical agents and more than 100 chemical warheads for Scud missiles.  http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/features/2013/05/2013523155639566436.html
