"I don't think you can trust Wikipedia to have the most relevant information on this issue."

I assume that "on this issue" you are referring to the military hardware that the Assad regime has acquired and still continues to receive from "Mother Russia".

Odd though isn't it that wikipedia is always an unimpeachable source when it suits some arguments and a useless source when it contradicts those same arguments.

I believe that nobody has to go to the CIA or MI6 to discover what military hardware the Assad Regime uses and who supplies that regime - simply watch the ghastly news coverage from the area, read reports from the various NGOs, consult Jane's, read reports from the UN's observers and weapons inspectors.

One NGO detailed the top twelve "killers" in Assad's weapons inventory - ten came directly from Russia and of the other two one came from China and the other came from Egypt or more likely Iran, both being copies of Russian systems - all information I have looked at supports what is shown quite clearly in the wikipedia article I provided the link to (Not a Union Standard or a Stars and Stripes in sight).

Did the CIA use Sarin in the attacks of the 21st August 2013 in Damascus, or were they in any way responsible? The massive weight of evidence available to third party independent inspectors suggests that no they did not, and no they were not.

Jom "The Impartial" quotes blogger Finian Cunningham who states that the Russians have evidence that it was the rebels who used chemical weapons, a statement that Jom obviously believes and has swallowed hook-line-and sinker. Only thing is though, the Russians have, for reasons best known to themselves, decided not to share this evidence with anybody, perhaps if they did a thread could be opened under the title:

"Did FSS use Spetsnaz to launch the Sarin missile in Syria to discredit the rebels?"
