Last night in Syria there was a chemical weapons massacre where more than 200 people were killed shortly after 3 am, local time. Syrian activists and anti-Assad forces promptly accused President Assad of conducting the attack that killed numerous women and children. This was in the area that was uncovered just over a month ago to contain an anti-Assad chemical weapons factory.
State TV and Syrian government promptly denied any responsibility for the attack. So much so that even experts are now wondering if it wasn’t merely the latest provocation attempt by the US, UK, Al-Qaeda supported rebels to turn public opinion further against Assad thus allowing an eventual military intervention. This is disgusting behaviour by the rebels, why would Assad carry out this atrocity when inviting chemical weapons inspectors into his country 3 days before? He wouldn’t, so why are our governments from the UK and US backing these murderous scum? Our governments are not what we are led to believe, front of house managers for the corporates and elites. Me and you do not matter to them, just the agenda.

The timing and location of the reported chemical weapons use – just three days after the team of U.N. chemical experts checked in to a Damascus hotel a few km (miles) to the east at the start of their mission – was surprising.
“It would be very peculiar if it was the government to do this at the exact moment the international inspectors come into the country,” said Rolf Ekeus, a retired Swedish diplomat who headed a team of UN weapons inspectors in Iraq in the 1990s.
“At the least, it wouldn’t be very clever.”
Ekeus said the mandate of the U.N. team was limited to three sites but could be amended to investigate fresh claims – which would be simpler to verify than the other months-old cases.
“It is easier to do sampling and testing, and also to look at the victims, if there are sick people or even dead people (on the scene). It is easier to get to doctors and get to the place where the event happened.”
Charles Lister, an analyst at IHS Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Centre, also said it made little sense for the Syrian government to use chemical agents now.
“Nonetheless, the Ghouta region (where the attacks were reported) is well known for its opposition leanings. Jabhat al-Nusra has had a long-time presence there and the region has borne the brunt of sustained military pressure for months now,” he said, referring to a hardline Sunni Islamist rebel group allied to al Qaeda.
“While it is clearly impossible to confirm the chemical weapons claim, it is clear from videos uploaded by reliable accounts that a large number of people have died.”
Our governments are supporting terrorism to maintain the petrodollar, a despicable act of a despicable system. My thoughts and hopes go out to the Syrian people and hope the world sees this for what it is, war crimes committed by the Western backed terrorists.
