A bit late, but, still important!
Syria to miss deadline to destroy 12 sites- so says an unidentified official
Yes, that is right an unidentified official is providing us with a narrative. But, it's not just narrative creation it's also prognosticating. The unidentified official (who knows who this really is?) is speaking certainties nine days before the said official could/should be certain.
Counting chickens/unhatched eggs. You know?
Syria will miss a major deadline next week in the program to destroy its chemical weapons production facilities, sources at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said on Thursday.So we have gone from 'sources' as in multiple- to one alleged official, albeit unnamed
Syria declared 12 production facilities to the OPCW and has until March 15 to destroy them under a deal agreed with the United States and Russia
"That will definitely be missed," said an official involved in discussions with Syria, referring to the March 15 deadline.
The official, who asked not to be identified, said there were seven "hardened" aircraft hangars and five underground facilities. "None of them have been destroyed at the moment," the official said.
Syrian officials could not immediately be reached for comment.- Which suggests we didn't wait for a response- and just hit publish
"They are not doing things in the timeframe they promised they would," the source said. "The process is in volatile waters."The sources, the source, the unnamed individual and then finally the war whore Samantha Power is mentioned.
You may recall not so long ago I had posted the news in this post that Syria had been making great progress
in the removal of chemical weapons,but, the US was expressing doubt and urging vigilance
The U.S. has reacted to Syria's accelerated removal of its dangerous chemicals with pronounced skepticism, urging international watchdogs to keep up their pressure and vigilance.
The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons reported Tuesday that Syria will have removed 23% of its most dangerous chemicals by end of the week, a significant step up from 4.5% two weeks ago. Syria promised to remove the rest of its chemicals by the end of April
I am still smelling narrative creation ahead of a widely known about spring offensive- Carnegie Endowment
If at first you don't succeed try, try, try again-
Lessons From Last Year
The idea of a southern offensive by “vetted” rebels has already been tried once, in the spring of 2013. Then, the southern front was boosted by fresh deliveries of Croatian antitank weaponry in conjunction with an effort to reorganize local rebel forces into politically moderate coalitions that would accept foreign guidance.Syria rebels say planning Damascus spring offensive
