Here we go again: Syria has “chemical weapons”…

Media scoundrels specialize in distorting comments and meaning.

They’re hyperbolic over Foreign Ministry spokesman Jihad Makdissi saying Syria would only use chemical weapons against external aggression.

His message was clear. Distortion, misinterpretation, and willful lying about it followed. Inflammatory headlines blared. More on what Makdissi meant below.

At the State Department’s daily press briefing, Victoria Nuland commented on Syria’s chemical weapons, saying: “Talk about using chemical weapons is horrific and chilling.” “Syria has a responsibility to the world (and) its own citizens to protect and safeguard those weapons.”

“Any kind of loose talk just speaks to the kind of regime that we’re talking about.”

“I think we’ve been absolutely clear where we stand on this issue, which is that any possible use of these kinds of weapons would be completely unacceptable.”

“We’ve been making our position clear for many, many days now, and we’ve also been working with all of our allies and partners to monitor the situation, to compare information, and to send the same messages.”

Syria “knows where we stand.” Asked about securing them, Nuland said “warnings that we have given with regard to these weapons have been absolutely clear.”
