News?

This is coolbert:

More news unfit to report?

Here too is more news that you will NOT find covered by the conventional news media. Britney Spears hit another photographer hounding her for another belly-button shot!! That we will read about. Sure!

But this? We will not read about or see this sort of thing covered during the nightly news broadcast!

"Report: Iranians Among Dead in Chemical Weapons Blast at Syrian Base"

A combined team of Syrian/Iranian engineer were fitting a Scud C missile with a mustard gas warhead? The damn thing went boom and showered the lot of them with the noxious agent, killing many!?

This is right from an authoritive source. Announced by the Syrian news agency. Must be reliable then?

"The July 26 explosion struck a military complex outside the city of Aleppo, killing at least 15 soldiers and wounding 50 others, according to Syria's state news agency, SANA."

"the explosion took place during a test to fit a 'Scud C' missile with a mustard-gas warhead. It quoted the sources as saying the explosion occurred when fuel caught fire in the missile production laboratory."

"'The blast dispersed chemical agents (including VX and Sarin nerve agents and mustard blister agent) across the storage facility and outside,'"

"in addition to the 15 Syrian troops, 'dozens' of Iranian weapons engineers were killed."

When you play with fire, your fingers can get burned!!

I noticed the NYT has run this stroy the last two days, but you scooped them, and their details are very skimpy.
