UK Allowed Chemical Weapons Precursors To Be Sold To Syrian Locations Ten Months After War Started

Posted by Phoenix Woman on September 1, 2013

Cameron’s lucky this didn’t come out before the vote last week, or it wouldn’t have been as close as it was:

BRITAIN allowed firms to sell chemicals to Syria capable of being used to make nerve gas, the Sunday Mail can reveal today.

Export licences for potassium fluoride and sodium fluoride were granted months after the bloody civil war in the Middle East began.

The chemical is capable of being used to make weapons such as sarin, thought to be the nerve gas used in the attack on a rebel-held Damascus suburb which killed nearly 1500 people, including 426 children, 10 days ago.

As well as attacks which have been blamed on rebel forces.

To continue:

The chemical export licences were granted by Business Secretary Vince Cable’s Department for Business, Innovation and Skills last January – 10 months after the Syrian uprising began.

They were only revoked six months later, when the European Union imposed tough sanctions on Assad’s regime.

And who was buying these chemicals? That’s the big question. I seriously doubt they all were purchased by government agents.

    To bad we can’t have a copy of the buyer and shipping order.
