New York Times: In Syria, Trump Faces the Limits of Bluster

The New York Times (4/9/18) calls Syria “a crucial test for Mr. Trump, who has shirked America’s traditional leadership role.”

Western governments accuse the Syrian government of carrying out a chemical weapon attack in Douma, a suburb of Damascus. The World Health Organization says that, of 70 deceased persons they examined in the area, 43 had signs of being exposed to “highly toxic chemicals,” though whether the government carried out the attack has not been confirmed, and even the US—despite its public stance—was reportedly “still assessing the evidence of the attack” and “did not know which chemical was used, or whether it was launched by the Syrian government or forces supporting the government” (New York Times, 4/11/18).

Poison Gas – Weapon of Choice for “False News”

By Peter Koenig, April 12, 2018

The recent fake gas attack on Douma outside of Damascus, has allegedly killed 80 to 120 people, mostly women and children. Of course, that sells best in the propaganda theatre – women and children. But there is not proof, none whatsoever. Continue reading

White Helmets ‘Treat’ Alleged Chemical Attack Victims Without Protective Gear By Msallam ABDALBASET

11 april 2018 — Sputnik

The White Helmets, which claim to be an impartial NGO, saving civilians in war-torn Syria, have repeatedly been busted using false videos of their daily rescue operations.

The Syrian Civil Defense, also known as the White Helmets, has published several clips and pictures, showing the alleged aftermath of the chemical attack in the city of Douma in Eastern Ghouta. The volunteers have reported a widespread suffocation in the area, which led to 42 deaths; the footage, posted on Twitter, shows the alleged victims, including babies in diapers, breathing through oxygen masks.

Syria – Any U.S. Strike Will Lead to Escalation

9 April 2018 — Moon of Alabama

Yesterday’s alleged ‘gas attack’ in east Ghouta likely never happened. A video shows a number of presumably dead kids in a basement or dark apartment. Another video shows an undamaged yellow gas cylinder which, we are told, was dropped from some unseen helicopter and crashed through a concrete roof. We do not know when or where these videos were made.

Syria – Timelines Of ‘Gas Attacks’ Follow A Similar Scheme (Updated)

8 April 2018 — Moon of Alabama

Updated below

An alleged new ‘chemical incident’ in Syria reminds of a similar series of events we saw last year. We are told to believe that each time the U.S. pulls back from the war on Syria the Syrian government is responding with a ‘chemical attack’ that pulls the U.S. back in.

Chemical weapon production facilities have been discovered in the areas liberated from militants in Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry says.

More than 40 tons of chemical weapons were abandoned by retreating militants in the war-ravaged country, the ministry said on Wednesday. “The Syrian Foreign Ministry pointed out that more than 40 tons of poisonous substances were found on the territories, liberated from terrorists,” Igor Kirillov, the commander of Russia’s Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Protection Forces, said on Wednesday.

Media Lens: ‘An Impeachable Offence’ – Professor Postol and Syria

26 April 2017 — Media Lens

It is hard to believe that just three weeks ago the entire corporate media was in uproar over Syria; specifically, about the need to ‘do something’ in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack in Khan Shaykhun, Idlib, Syria, on April 4. Guardian commentator George Monbiot summed up the corporate media zeitgeist:

‘Do those who still insist Syrian govt didn’t drop chemical weapons have any idea how much evidence they are denying?’

Seymour Hersh unearths more lies on Syria By Jonathon Cook

6 April 2014 — Jonathon Cook

Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh has a second fascinating essay that rewrites the official record of the sarin gas attack on Ghouta, near Damascus, in August last year. As usual, Hersh uses his sources in the US security establishment to throw light on what really took place. The bottom line: Turkey was almost certainly the party responsible for the attack, hoping it would force Obama to honour his threatened “red line” if Assad used chemical weapons. Was the Assad regime to be brought down by a US military campaign, Turkey assumed it would be able to turn Syria into a client state.

Media Blackout of New Syria Revelations

On April 6, The London Review of Books published in its online journal Seymour Hersh’s “The Red Line and the Rat Line.” Hersh continues to expose details surrounding the staged August 21 chemical attack incident in Syria, which apparently pretty much everyone in Washington’s intelligence bureaucracy suspected was carried out by the rebels as soon as it happened.

Syria’s Recent Victories Betray Last Year’s WMD Lies By Tony Cartalucci

20 March 2014 — Land Destroyer

Image: Syrian forces have made irreversible gains across the country against foreign-backed militants. Such gains began long before the August 2013 “chemical weapons attack” in Damascus – exposing the pivotal event as not only a false-flag attack carried out by the West and its proxies, but as a result of not Syrian desperation, but rather Western desperation.

Syria: Whose sarin? By Seymour M. Hersh

13 February 2014 — Voltaire Network

In August-September 2013, Barack Obama, David Cameron and François Hollande accused Syria of killing 1,400 opponents in the suburbs of Damascus. Denouncing that a red line had been crossed, they threatened to launch a punitive campaign against Assad’s criminal regime. Shortly after, London withdrew, then Washington, and finally Paris. Commenting on these events, Seymour Hersh shows that President Obama knew nothing of what had actually happened, abused the ignorance of his interlocutors and lied when he claimed to have evidence of Syria’s guilt.

Missile Experts: White House Made False Claims Over Syrian WMD Use

16 January 2014 — Moon of Alabama

We called the chemical weapon attack near Damascus on August 21st a false flag operations and unlikely to have been committed by the Syrian government.
