After yet another example of brazen Western aggression against Syria, the United States, UK, and France are once again demonstrating to the world who exactly is the biggest threat to world peace. The entire March 14 assault on Syria by the three powers has been justified by the West as a reaction to an alleged chemical weapons attack that allegedly took place in Douma weeks ago.
The word “allegedly” is incredibly important here because not only is it merely alleged that the Syrian military conducted a chemical weapons attack, it is also merely alleged that the attack even took place. More on that in a minute.
But during the debate about the chemical weapons attack – who conducted it and if it happened at all – the West has claimed to be one hundred percent sure with no doubt whatsoever that the Syrian military personally directed by Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against civilians in a battle it was fighting and winning against terrorists at precisely the worst possible opportunity to do so. This is despite virtually all of the evidence to the contrary.
The Russian government maintained that not only was Assad innocent of the crime he was being accused of but that the West essentially fabricated the whole event.
So with that in mind, let us consider for a moment that the United States is correct that Assad used chemical weapons against his own people and thus still maintains chemical weapons. The United States claims it knows where these weapons stockpiles are and where research is being conducted on those weapons. Indeed, these are the very facilities targeted by the U.S., UK, and France during the March 14th operations.
So the question now remains – if Syria’s chemical weapons research and storage facilities were just bombed by the United States, why weren’t the civilians living around these areas currently dying from the chemical weapons that were dispersed as a result of the airstrikes?
Why weren’t there explosions of chemical gas and chemical agents in any of the facilities bombed by the “coalition?”
The answer is simple – there were no chemical weapons in those facilities just like there are no chemical weapons in the possession of the Syrian government.
America’s terrorists, however, are another story, having had access to and having used chemical weapons on a number of occasions.
Another “convenient” aspect of the timing of the attack was the fact that the bombing took place before OPCW inspectors could arrive in Douma, at the request of the Syrian and Russian governments, in order to conduct an investigation as to whether or not chemical weapons were used at all and, if so, what kind. The American-led attack was a possible attempt to destroy the crime scene and draw some blood from Syria before the OPCW team could evaluate the American claims. Fortunately, however, the OPCW inspectors have arrived in Damascus and will shortly be making their way to Douma. The question is whether or not there will be anything for them to inspect as the damage from the Western war crime is yet to be fully analyzed.
As Vanessa Beeley wrote in her article for 21st Century Wire (which was conveniently attacked and taken down in the days leading up to the strike against Syria) in her article entitled, “The Egregious Western Media ‘Chemical Weapon’ Fraud In Eastern Ghouta,”
The ‘Chemical Weapon’ narrative has sustained the conflict in Syria with alleged attacks being attributed almost entirely to the Syrian government, the Syrian Arab Army and Russia. The seven year information war has been ferocious with NATO-aligned media, think tanks and self appointed experts such as Eliot Higgins and Bellingcat doing all in their power to reinforce the “Syria did it” narrative.
If we were to map the chemical weapon claims in each terrorist held area undergoing liberation by the Syrian Arab Army, we would clearly see that the claims are commensurate with the pressure felt by the terrorist factions as the SAA closes in on their stronghold. In other words, as the SAA nears victory and liberation of Syrian civilians we are expected to believe they would use chemical weapons against those civilians in an urban area which is even more densely packed as the terrorists withdraw into a shrinking combat zone, taking the civilians with them as human shields and hostages.
It appears to be a propaganda tactic employed by the terrorist factions to gain time, secure a ceasefire and to call for a No Fly Zone and further “humanitarian” intervention from the regime-change-war alliance. A ceasefire allows the militants to organise themselves and to re-arm. We know that terrorist chemical weapon attacks against the civilian population in West Aleppo were never given equivalent importance by the same “humanitarian” minded nations, in fact they were largely ignored. Therefore it is reasonable to conclude that crying “chemical weapon” is a tactic designed to protect the NATO-member-state assets occupying Syrian territory.
We need only cast our minds back to August 2013 and the extraordinary BBC Panorama report on the “Napalm-like school bombing” in Urem-Al-Kubra, Aleppo province – Saving Syria’s Children
Independent journalist, Robert Stuart, has masterfully and forensically exposed this report to be nothing more than war theatre orchestrated by the BBC in order ratchet up UK military intervention in Syria, coinciding with the time of David Cameron‘s vote in Parliament to join the US bombing campaign in Syria “to deter the use of chemical weapons” by the Syrian government (of course). This BBC report came hot on the heels of the alleged chemical weapon attack in Eastern Ghouta in August 2013 which was immediately blamed upon the Syrian government. Since then, that claim has been discredited by a number of analysts and independent experts.
This alleged attack, reported by BBC Panorama, was naturally accompanied by the familiar witness testimony effectively calling for the World to intervene and bomb for “Peace” – “Dear United Nations, you are calling peace, you are calling for peace. What kind of peace are you calling for? Don’t you see this, don’t you see this? What do you need to see?” from the Telegraph article at the time.
Fast forward to Eastern Ghouta which is now 90% liberated from the many terrorist factions that have occupied this eastern suburb of Damascus since 2012 and we have seen an uptick in the claims of chemical weapon attacks as the SAA noose draws tighter around the terrorist enclaves. Most of those claims are being circulated by the Al Qaeda auxiliary organisation, the White Helmets.
I highly recommend accessing Beeley’s article, which contains numerous photos from Ghouta after the area had been liberated, taken by Beeley herself, that serve as evidence of Western funding and supplying of these terrorists as well as the terrorist chemical weapons capability.
