Major U.S. and London media are filled Sunday morning with the most unbelievable claim yet of a mass chemical attack in Syria, as a pretext, desired by Theresa May’s British government, for British, French and/or U.S. attacks on Syria, threatening world war.
When the hoked-up video of the victims and survivors of this faux attack first appeared on BBC Saturday night, one could have wondered whether Saddam Hussein had risen from the grave with his weapons of mass destruction, or even whether “Polish forces have crossed the German border” again. Military intelligence experts, not only in Russia and Syria but also in the United States, immediately proclaimed the “chemical attack” a hoax. Russia’s Defense Ministry had been forecasting exactly such a false-flag operation as far back as March 17, at least.
The first “report” of this alleged atrocity — not just on the city of Douma, but, of course, on a hospital — originated with the jihadi group Jaish al-Islam, which is fighting Syrian Arab Army forces and has had control of the relevant area (and hospital) for some time. It was spread by the British-run, pro-terrorist “White Helmets” rescue organization, now renamed Syrian Civil Defense, and the curiously named Syrian American Medical Society in Washington, D.C. It alleged constantly rising numbers had been killed and 500 injured by a chemical bombing.
One video on BBC showed “rescue workers,” most without masks, moving about in a hallway, passing young children to one another, hosing down others, etc. Another showed people of all ages lying in a pile, some with foam around their mouths. Reuters and the London-based Syrian Observatory ran with the story while reporting they could not confirm any chemical attack.
Russia, the target of this British stage show, had warned for weeks that desperate jihadi groups had possession of chemical agents, both in Eastern Ghouta and in the north of Syria, and were planning false flag chemical weapons events to bring on NATO attacks on Syrian and Russian military sites.
President Donald Trump is the next British target because of his desire to cooperate against terrorism with Vladimir Putin’s Russia. Trump tweeted on Sunday morning: “Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price to pay. Open area immediately for medical help and verification. Another humanitarian disaster for no reason whatsoever. SICK! Donald J. Trump”.
The truly most party to the report is May’s British government. Its demand for total confrontation with Russia got far less than complete support from European allies and President Trump when it accused Russia of a nerve agent murder attempt on British soil. Britain’s own chemical weapons defense laboratory failed to back up Ms. Mayhem and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.
The Russian Defense Ministry responded to the current British pageant of marvels as follows: “Hoaxes on attacks using chlorine or other poisonous substances by Syrian government forces are continuing to emerge. Another such hoax that has supposedly taken place is the alleged chemical attack in Douma yesterday. At the same time, references have been made to the notorious NGO `White Helmets,’ which has been repeatedly caught acting with terrorists, as well as other so-called humanitarian organizations based in the United Kingdom and the United States,” according to Sputnik today. The Defense Ministry emphasized that it had repeatedly warned about possible provocations involving the use of chemical weapons in Syria. Their major aim is to accuse Syrian government forces of chemical weapons use and justify possible military intervention in Syria from abroad, according to the ministry’s statement, wrote Sputnik this morning, under the headline, “Moscow Warns Against Foreign Attack in Syrian Areas where Russian Troops Located.”
