No matter how optimistically you look at it, all signs scream that the US and allies are about to attack the sovereign country Syria based on an unproven rumour, and judging by Donald Trump’s past MO, he might be expected to launch the attack without awaiting a thorough investigation.
The entire Western corporate media got wind of, and unanimously decided to spread, the rumour of a chemical attack in Douma, a suburb of Damascus and the rumour that the attack was ordered by Bashar al-Assad, who just hates his constituents so much for voting for him that he wants them dead – before elections, mind you.
One of the first reports of the incident came from the New York Times, stating:
“On Saturday afternoon, 15 people, including women and children, reported breathing problems after an airstrike in their area, Mahmoud Aadam, a spokesman for the Syrian Civil Defense, the so-called White Helmets [NSS highlighting], who rescue people in the wake of airstrikes, said via Facebook Live on Sunday.”
Before reading any further, you need to know some things about the aforementioned White Helmets and their credibility or lack thereof. According to Vanessa Beeley, a tireless investigative journalist who travels frequently to Syria to get the back story on the corporate media’s invariably anti-Assad reports on Middle East events, the White Helmets, who have been lionized by Hollywood, are, frankly, a bunch of phonies funded by $millions from the US and UK, do not really rescue anyone (except occasionally terrorists), have ties to terrorist groups and mislead the public by calling themselves Syria Civil Defence, even though there is a real civil defence group by that name that antedates them by decades and actually rescues people without fanfare using professional methods.
We had originally linked to an article in 21st Century Wire written by Beeley but that became inaccessible after we had posted the link so you can try this one, which worked last time we checked. Please read everything Vanessa says about the White Helmets and you will see that the US has zero grounds for invading Syria.
Now recall that Assad comes in a package with Putin and accusations against one often are stealthily aimed at the other and vice-versa. The accusation that Russia poisoned ex Russian spy Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia is a prime example, and in fact, one of the cock-and-bull stories about the poison that harmed them has it that it somehow came from Syria. If one did not know better, one might suspect that the UK investigators were trying desperately to find an excuse to attack Syria.
“Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world.”
Since this is true, how is it possible for the White Helmets, which are headquartered in Coventry, England, to arrive at the scene and take photos of the damage and the victims? (This also raises a secondary question: How do they have time to take all these photos when there are supposedly over 100 victims requiring urgent treatment?)
The reason the army is there is because this is the last stronghold of the militants in the Damascus area. So if the militants control the area within the army’s cordon, why would they have allowed a Western-based group, the White Helmets, to enter and treat people? The people who are being liberated from rebel-held areas are telling horror stories (captured on video) of being treated as prisoners and slaves (for example, in tunnel building). They are all happy to be going to areas under the control of the man Trump calls an animal.
It doesn’t add up.
