Turkey Intercepts Syrian Passenger Aircraft, En Route From Russia, On Suspicion It Was Carrying Weapons

And when we say weapons, we mean chemical weapons and other nasties.

Correction: The plane was flying from Russia to Syria and is not suspected of ferrying weapons out of Syria, but into Syria.

Apologies. I completely misheard this story on Fox and conflated it with the troop movements to Jordan. When I looked up the story in print, I thought I understood it from the misheard TV report.

...

Now I know what you're thinking, with regard to Iraq. And I'm thinking that too. There's an article by a guy whose name I forget -- I believe he was a Greek, and I believe he was formerly a Communist agent, and I believe he wrote on National Review for a time.

And I can't quite remember what he said, but he asserted that Russia had plans with all of its satrapies to evacuate the Nasty Stuff out upon collapse of the regime they'd been helping.

Hopefully you'll remember.

As mentioned earlier, US troops are now in Jordan, patrolling the border, looking for cross-border movement of chemical weapons stocks.
