The fall of Assad could be a disaster for the West

11

British Intelligence has prepared a report for the British Parliament, which warns that in the event of the fall of the current Syrian government, all of its chemical reserves weapons may be in the hands of terrorists. Their main goal in this case will be the United Kingdom and Europe.


The UK Parliamentary Intelligence and Security Committee presented its annual report on Wednesday, based on evidence from the country's intelligence services. It stresses that the main source of threat to the country is the conflict in Syria, where radical Islamists and al-Qaeda members continue to act on the side of the opposition.

The heads of the three British intelligence organizations (counterintelligence MI5, intelligence MI6 and electronic intelligence - Government Communications Center) said in a closed meeting with committee members that many jihadists are leaving the UK to study in Syria and return to make terrorist attacks throughout Europe.

In this case, the most terrible consequence for the security of the kingdom is chemical weapons, in which no one doubts the Syrian government anymore. In the case of the fall of the regime of Bashar Assad, its reserves could fall into the hands of terrorists, which would be a "catastrophe" for the UK.

Earlier, Prime Minister David Cameron has already said that the terrorists fighting on the side of the Syrian opposition are trying to gain access to chemical weapons depots. Russia has already announced the use of Bashair-3 shells using sarin. On Tuesday, Russia's permanent representative to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, presented the head of the organization Ban Ki-Moon an 80-page report analyzing samples from the site of the use of chemical weapons 19 in March in the province of Aleppo.

According to the British intelligence services, at the disposal of Assad there are chemical weapons containing sarin, ricin, mustard gas and VX - "the most deadly poisonous agent ever created." According to the head of MI6, John Soers, there is a threat of “very fast sprawling of weapons at the time of the fall of the regime.”

Among other things, the report notes that al-Qaeda has changed its tactics for training terrorists: these are no longer organized cells that can be calculated, but trained individuals.

The British Foreign Secretary, William Hague, said police units could be deployed to opposition sites. Or, Syria will be supplied with equipment to protect civilians from possible chemical and biological attacks. In any case, no final decision has yet been made on the further actions of the British in Syria. Including it is unknown whether the UK will use force or arm the rebels.

          It is interesting here that the most obvious way is to leave the lawfully elected government alone and stop financing the terrorists, they immediately reject. Find that M.R.A.Zota who came up with the slogan about Assad, but a ride on a Coke ...

      Yes, without her predictions everything is clear as God's day, the "Great Caliphate" project took place many years before Vaenga. As for the brit, I just want to ask - "What did you see in whose hands they put the ax? It's too late! Now bear your heads .."

    Though sensible people were found in intelligence. But the Gayropean governments don't care until the cock pecks. And Assad will bite again will be to blame for everything, like Erdogan’s.

    What? Are they preparing a way out, trying to concoct a good face in a bad game?

    It’s interesting what conclusions they WANT to draw: do not arm the terrorists or attack Assad’s chemical depots ???

    The most correct in my opinion: to supply weapons to Bashar for the struggle for PEACE and PEACE !!!

      Well, here you are bent, Assad after such a confrontation, they certainly are unlikely to help. Most likely there is no choice, and the goal will be the destruction of warehouses with weapons of mass destruction.

    Well so it is a no brainer. That the militants will then get to the geyropa and begin to arrange Sharia laws there. Crush their nada in the bud. Crush! And they crush their breasts there - we’ll give, we won’t.
    Have a chamomile here!

      They have been there for a long time, and they are setting laws. Muammar Gaddafi said: “We see signs that Allah will grant victory to Islam in Europe without weapons and conquests. We do not need terrorists, we do not need suicide bombers. More than 50 the millionth Muslim community of Europe will make it the Muslim continent in a matter of decades. ” That's actually what Europe is now like:

    Get to Russia, for some reason, everything is directed against it. Our classical Muslims are constantly spread rot, they kill (!). I mean
    our, especially respected, imams and theologians.
