More reactionary and discredited ICM nonsense from Mr Mainstream, The Guardian and NYT above...

"US State Department retails unconfirmed Al Qaeda militants' claims of chlorine gas use by Assad state. [Neo] Liberal newspapers and BBC immediately report it."



"The US State Department is inviting Al Qaeda to Idlib to use chemical weapons again, so they can have an excuse to attack the Syrian army and save Al Qaeda. Remember, Syria doesn't have chemical weapons anymore."



"Douma 'Chemical Attack' was not only staged but also the victims who were used in the theatre might have been killed in an inhuman way by The White Helmets. [Like the Waffen SS Galizien Ukrainians before them, the W/H were 'resettled' in Canada]. Watch our discussion with Prof David Miller, University of Bristol."



Idlib-Based Uighur Terrorists Threatened Russian Forces in Syria


"The so-called 'Turkistan Islamic Party, the Syrian branch of the Uighur-led terrorist group previously known as the 'East Turkistan Islamic Movement', threatened to deal Russia a defeat akin to the one its predecessor experienced in Afghanistan, demonstrating the transnational danger this group has become and consquently explaining why Turkey needs to take decisive action against these terrorists operating in its Syrian 'sphere of influence.'"

RE: Post 252 -- good media lens article posted recently about the previous chemical attacks:


"A defining feature of the propaganda system is that facts supporting the agenda of Western power are pushed to the forefront of the 'mainstream' media, while inconvenient facts are buried. A prime example is the shameful media silence in response to a devastating document leaked from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), discussed in a recent media alert. The document, an engineering assessment of two chlorine cylinders found at two separate locations after an attack on the Damascus suburb of Douma on April 7, 2018, casts serious doubt on the official narrative that Syrian government forces had dropped them from helicopters. The claim that Assad had used chemical weapons 'against his own civilians' was used by the US, UK and France to 'justify' missile strikes on 'chemical weapons facilities' on April 14, 2018."

Does the US Army Really Intend to Leave Syria?


"Thus, it becomes obvious that the words of Donald Trump about his readiness to let Syria alone are just empty promises that do not reflect the true intentions of the White House. As a result, there is no doubt that the US will continue its illegal presence in Syria. The Pentagon does not intend to abandon its plans..."
