From Iraqi weapons of mass destruction to Syrian chemical weapons by Thierry Meyssan

5 March 2019 — Voltaire Network

In a report dated 1 March 2019, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) attests to the fact that were never any prohibited chemical substances in Douma (Syria) during the attack of 7 April 2018. The reprisal tripartite bombing (United States, France, United Kingdom) was therefore unjustified. This scandal is exactly identical to the story of the bogus Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. It will be followed by many other items of fake news as long as the West continues to trust their medias.

What is astonishing is that, just four years ago, essentially no-one held this view of Jeremy Corbyn.

Douma Chemicals Attack: Is Western Media Bias Actually Enflaming the Syria War? By Martin Jay

6 March 2019 — Strategic Culture Foundation

When Britain, France and the US launched airstrikes last April in Syria against Assad military sites, few, if any, western pundits raised their head above the pulpit and questioned the hasty decision, to ‘retaliate’ against the Syrian leader – as it was taken for granted that a chemical weapons attack in Douma was likely to have originated from Assad.

City of London: The shocking study no mainstream media outlet dared to publish

6 March 2019 — True Publica

By Robert Woodward – TruePublica: A seriously important and highly credible study was published five months ago last October. It was completely ignored by all of the mainstream media. Not one took the opportunity to publish the stunning revelations for fear of what might happen if they did. The report has unpalatable political consequences for the government – in fact, both Labour and Tory are implicated by the exposure of this colossal crime.
