Americans have such a limited memory, they have already forgotten the last lies that were pushed by the Pentagon and the CIA in 2013 to justify war on Syria and remove its elected leader, Assad. Last week our Dear Leaders in congress were outraged when Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson declared the US goal in Syria was no longer the removal of President Assad. And what do you know, voila the Military Industrial Complex revives the chemical weapons attack allegations with absolutely no evidence and declares Assad is killing his own people and must be removed. From 21st Century Wire:
Reviving the ‘Chemical Weapons’ Lie: New US-UK Calls for Regime Change, Military Attack Against Syria
Here it comes again. As the enemies of peace continue to pressure a new US President into deeper war commitments overseas, and as Washington’s Deep State works relentlessly opposing Russian moves in Syria at every turn, the war drums have started again – beating harder than ever now, clamouring for a new US-led attack on Syria. This morning we saw the familiar theme emerge, and just in time to provide a convenient backdrop to this week’s Brussels’ ‘Peace Talks’ and conference on “Syria’s Future”….
On cue, the multi-billion dollar US and UK media machines sprung into overdrive this morning over reports based primarily from their own ‘activist’ media outlets. Aleppo Media Center and others embedded in the Al Nusra-dominated terrorist stronghold of Idlib, Syria, alongside their media counterpart the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) funded by the UK and EU, are all now claiming that the Syrian and Russian Airforces have launched a chemical weapons airstrike killing civilians in Idlib…
The BBC claims in their article that, “Opposition activists said Syrian government or Russian warplanes carried out the strikes…” The problem here is that the BBC and others are not only taking ‘opposition activists’ reports of a chemical attack at face value… As with so many other previous reports on Syria, the BBC, CNN and AP’s reporting relies exclusively on “opposition activists” and “opposition media agencies…”
Ultimately, these reports can be used to trigger renewed calls by Western officials for military strikes against the ‘Syrian Regime’... Within a few hours after these reports circulated, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R, Illinois) came on CNN with Wolf Blitzer who asked Kinzinger point blank: What can be done to remove this regime? Kinzinger then replied by calling outright for US airstrikes to “Take out the Assad Regime in Syria”, including “cratering their airstrips so no planes can take off” and creating a “No Fly Zone” over Syria…
Of course, Kinzinger was followed on-air by John McCain protesting against US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s recent comments this week that, “The Syrian people should be able to choose their own (political) future…”
Incredibly, Kinzinger also said on national TV with CNN that people should ignore any stories which DO NOT implicate the Syrian government…
Truth and facts be damned for big media who serve the Deep State. Last week we were told there is $10 TRILLION DOLLARS MISSING AT THE PENTAGON, but that barely made a blip on the radar. There was no outrage expressed by Adam Kinzinger nor from John McCain to equal the outrage they expressed at the Trump Administration’s decision to allow the democratically elected Assad to remain in power.
Now we are to believe that this “false flag” chemical attack was carried out by Assad who incidentally has been winning the war against the CIA backed terrorists. Just doesn’t pass the smell test. From Information Clearing House:
Something is Not Adding Up In Idlib Chemical Weapons Attack
“At least 58 people were killed in an alleged horrific gas attack in the Idlib Governorate this morning“. However, even before investigations could be conducted and for evidence to emerge, Federica Mogherini, the Italian politician High Representative of the European Union (EU) for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, condemned the Syrian government stating that the “Assad regime bears responsibility for ‘awful’ Syria ‘chemical’ attack…”
Merely hours after the alleged chemical weapons attack in Khan Sheikhun, supposedly by the Syrian government, holes are beginning to emerge from opposition sources, discrediting the Al-Qaeda affiliated White Helmets claims.
For one, seen in the above picture, the White Helmets are handling the corpses of people without sufficient safety gear, most particularly with the masks mostly used, as well as no gloves….
Within seconds of exposure to sarin, the affects of the gas begins to target the muscle and nervous system. There is an almost immediate release of the bowels and the bladder, and vomiting is induced. When sarin is used in a concentrated area, it has the likelihood of killing thousands of people. Yet, such a dangerous gas, and the White Helmets are treating bodies with little concern to their exposed skin. This has to raise questions.
It also raises the question why a doctor in a hospital full of victims of sarin gas has the time to tweet and make video calls. This will probably be dismissed and forgotten however.
It is known that about 250 people from Majdal and Khattab were kidnapped by Al-Qaeda terrorists last week. Local sources have claimed that many of those dead from the chemical weapons were those from Majdal and Khattab. This would suggest that on the eve of upcoming peace negotiations, terrorist forces have once again created a false flag scenario.
Begs, the question, who stood to gain from a false flag sarin attack that killed the people who were kidnapped by Al-Qaeda?
Veterans Today is reporting that Swedish Medical Associations have proof the While Helmets murdered kids for fake gas attack videos.
Swedish Medical Associations Says White Helmets Murdered Kids for Fake Gas Attack Videos
When will the war guilt of Nazi Germany come home to roost in America?
Introduction by Gordon Duff
President Trump is now threatening to take America into a war against Syria, Iran and even Russia, a war he says is justified by “evidence” he has received from the Syrian White Helmets. We will prove beyond any doubt that this is a “Deep State” organization, a melding of CIA, al Qaeda and Britain’s intelligence services. We now have “slam dunk” proof that Trump and the “fake news” MSM are and always have been in lockstep, playing us all…
Children Murdered for Propaganda Videos
Swedish Doctors For Human Rights (swedhr.org) analysed videos, the rescue after an alleged attack by Syrian government forces. The doctors found that the videos were counterfeit, where even Arabic stage directions were overheard, and that the alleged “Rescue” in actuality is a murder. On first analysis, it looked as though the doctors working on the child assumed he was already dead.
However, at after broader investigation, our team ascertained that the boy was unconscious from an overdose of opiates. The video shows the child receiving injections in his chest, perhaps in the area of the heart and was eventually killed while a clearly fake adrenaline injection was administered.
This was a murder.
The biggest mistake Trump has made is allowing Mike Pence to choose his cabinet. Filled with war hawks loyal to W. Bush and Obama, they are now providing Trump with propaganda disguised as intelligence to justify the removal of Assad. I believe Trump is being set up to be impeached for war crimes. Truthout has reported that Trump is guilty of war crimes:
Donald Trump's War Crimes
Donald Trump has already distinguished himself as a war criminal -- just two and a half months into his presidency. In addition to using white phosphorous, a chemical weapon, and depleted uranium, this administration has killed an unusually large number of civilians, in violation of US and international law.
Killing Civilians in Record Numbers
The Trump administration began to kill civilians over inaugural weekend, with two drone strikes in Yemen that claimed 10 lives. One drone struck three people on a motorcycle. The other hit seven people riding in a car. Neither Trump nor Defense Secretary James Mattis admits to having approved the strikes. It is not clear who authorized them.
Big media is eager to spread the lies that could lead up to unbelievable horrors if Trump’s generals get permission to retaliate against Assad based on bogus claims. There appears to be a shadow government operating out of the White House that is feeding Trump pure unadulterated bullshit. The Intercept is reporting that Mike Pence’s dear friend Erik Prince, owner of the mercenary army formerly known as Blackwater has been unofficially meeting with operatives in Abu Dhabi.
REP. JAN SCHAKOWSKY CALLS FOR INVESTIGATION INTO TRUMP’S TIES TO BLACKWATER FOUNDER ERIK PRINCE
REP. JAN SCHAKOWSKY, the most dogged opponent of Blackwater founder Erik Prince in the U.S. Congress, is blasting the Trump administration for using Prince as a shadow emissary for the White House. “He is the kind of unvetted, unscrupulous person that seems to fit very nicely, especially into the kinds of operations that they want done,” Schakowsky said in an exclusive interview for the Intercepted podcast. “This is exactly the kind of person who should be excluded from having anything to do with our government, covert or out in public.”
Schakowsky was responding to reporting by The Intercept and the Washington Post that Prince is serving as an unofficial adviser and emissary for Trump and his team. The Post reported on Monday that Prince and the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, arranged a meeting in the Seychelles islands “to establish a back-channel line of communication between Moscow and President-elect Donald Trump.” That followed an earlier meeting in December 2016 with Sheikh al-Nahyan, Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner, and retired Gen. Michael Flynn in New York…
Last year, The Intercept reported on Prince’s new company, Frontier Services Group, which is based in Hong Kong and has deep ties to the Chinese government. BuzzFeed’s Aram Roston also reported that Prince “has been offering his military expertise to support Chinese government objectives and setting up two Blackwater-style training camps in China.” Roston suggested that Prince’s latest moves “could also risk violating U.S. law, which prohibits the export of military services or equipment to China.”
In January, six days after the Seychelles meeting, The Intercept reported that Prince was informally advising Trump. Prince’s wife posted pictures from inside Trump headquarters of Trump and Mike Pence watching the election results. Prince contributed at least $250,000 to Trump’s campaign through a political action committee run by billionaire Robert Mercer.
Prince’s mother also contributed heavily to the PAC. Prince’s sister Betsy DeVos is Trump’s education secretary. “The whole family is quite troubling,” said Rep. Schakowsky, “and now is part of the inner circle, the ruling party, the people with the most influence in the world, in charge of this administration…” Prince moved to Abu Dhabi in 2010, amid major scandals involving Blackwater… The Trump administration is littered with appointees and advisers who are radical hawks on Iran.
Prince has had a long relationship with Vice President Pence and has contributed to his political campaigns for years. As head of the Republican Study Group in Congress, Pence helped organize a Capitol Hill reception for Prince in 2007 after Blackwater water operatives gunned down 17 Iraqi civilians in Baghdad’s Nisour Square.
In March 2016, The Intercept reported that Prince was “under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice and other federal agencies for attempting to broker military services to foreign governments and possible money laundering.
There’s something very wrong here. Why is Erik Prince’s new mercenary army Frontier Services Group, with “deep ties to the Chinese government supplying expertise to support Chinese government objectives and setting up two Blackwater-style training camps in China” at a time when President Trump is trying to force China to deal with North Korea? Are Pence and Prince sabotaging Trump?
Erik Prince’s mercenary army has been involved in CIA instigated conflicts all over, from Iraq to Ukraine. I wonder how much of the $10 trillion in taxpayer money missing at the Pentagon has gone to Prince’s various mercenary armies. They have committed horrific human rights violations everywhere they operate, particularly in Ukraine and Iraq while they are accountable to no one. From The Independent:
Inside the 'Blackwater of Jihad': The private security company training extremists in Syria
Malhama Tactical is an Islamist private military contractor that means business and has operated across a number of states, including Syria – its name means ‘great war’ or Armageddon
They wear the latest and most advanced body armour and helmets, camouflage gear and anti-ballistic sunglasses: the fashion statement favoured by frontline private security companies across the world’s combat zones. But Malhama Tactical is not from the West like most of the others. Its fighters are in Syria training Islamists: a “Blackwater of jihad” who have found a new way of cashing in on the self-styled “caliphate”.
Blackwater became the most high-profile of Western security contractors in Iraq, gaining notoriety as the most violent and aggressive of the corporate military firms that spotted a highly lucrative trade following the “liberation” of the country in 2003. Such firms were largely immune from scrutiny or prosecution: that changed after a particularly bloody day in Baghdad.
One late morning in September in 2007, I watched as Blackwater’s guards opened fire from their armoured cars into families out on a Sunday in a popular location, Nisoor Square: 17 civilians were killed and more than were 40 injured. Four of the guards were later convicted in connection with the deaths. Blackwater changed its name, first to Xe Services and then Academi and continues to receive US government contracts.
Mike Pence and Erik Prince appear to be making decisions that can put our military in the untenable position of assisting mercenary armies to remove the elected President of Syria based on lies spread by Big Media. According to Veterans Today, this circle jerk is based on pure bullshit.
Idlib ‘Gas Attack’ is same old BS as before
This story is highly fragmented and confusing, with contradictory reports coming from Syria and Russia and an ‘official’ story being portrayed in the western media that is an utter forgery. We don’t (yet) have all the pieces of this puzzle but we have good sources inside Syria and elsewhere so we will attempt to fill in as many of the pieces as we can.
The origin of the gas attack fairytale is the White Helmets, the fake organisation pretending to help people but in reality, another arm of the coterie of mercenaries and foreign troops pretending to be Syrian rebels or Islamic Jihadis, they have often been the source of the fake anti-Assad stories that have been a feature of this conflict. They have been caught filming their fake videos in places like Egypt and Morocco, using actors, smoke machines and fake blood. Therefore we have no reason to believe this latest tale is any different and utterly fraudulent…
This tale from the White Helmets was then spread to the Western media by the SOHR – they are using one sockpuppet fake to promote and add false credibility to the fake news manufactured by another sockpuppet fake op… Investigative journalism is dead, replaced with phony fake news that no-one bothers to fact check before broadcasting…
A chemical weapons shipment run by Saudi mercenaries blows up before it can be offloaded and used to attack the Syrian army in Hama and by the time the SOHR are done with it, it has turned into Syrian aircraft dropping sarin gas on orphanages and the videos shot in Egypt with the smoke machines are dragged out again…
VT has thoroughly debunked that story, we exposed the role of Israel, Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the Ukraine , the CIA and the Russian Mafia, all of whom had a hand in the supply of the gas to the Syrian ‘rebels’ who were the ones who used it on innocent Syrian civilians.
The story that blamed it on Assad came from the Syrian Human Rights Observatory, a one man disinfo op in the suburbs of Coventry, England run by Rami Abdul Rehman. Once again, as in 2013, it is the tubby little liar Rehman and his SHRO that is behind the lies, once again the ‘Assad did it’ meme is being used to hide the true guilty party – the ISIS and FSA mercenaries…
What I find so sickening is the total disregard for our military and the flippant disregard for the lives of the military families that will bear the brunt of the suffering that will result from the decisions of the millionaires and billionaires who control our government. They choose to move our military into horrific situations like chessmen on a chessboard to be discarded when they are broken.
Donald Trump campaigned on ending these baseless wars of aggression. Today he was sucked into the lies about Assad using chemical weapons on women and children. Lies spread by the same politicians that slash VA benefits, military pensions while they enrich themselves as they cast bets on the stock market based on the profits they will make from the legislation and war decisions they have a vote in. Lies by the same politicians that allow the use of white phosphorus and depleted uranium knowingly committing war crimes.
If Donald Trump unleashes the dogs of war on the people of Syria, he will be a war criminal and will bear the brunt of the ramifications while Mike Pence, Erik Prince and the entire corrupt cadre of criminals in our government will remove him from office while they continue unscathed and free to kill again. Please President Trump do not succumb to the Deep State and Military Industrial Complex who are lying to you about Assad’s use of chemical weapon in Syria just as he was winning the war.
