STRIKE IMMINENT: Trump Threatens WW3 Over Unverified Chemical Weapons Attacks In Regions Controlled By Terrorists

in news •  last month

It’s the second chemical weapons attack to happen in Syria since President Donald Trump took office and once again the attack seems to be convenient, as Russia and the U.S. both announced a withdrawal of troops from Syria. Why would Syrian President Bashar al-Assad gas his own people as two foreign countries are readying to leave its territory? None of this makes sense.. 

This isn’t the first time this happened either where the timing was questionable… 

In 2017 of last year Trump faced his first test of a chemical weapons attack in Syria, and his response was bombarding Syria with missiles over unverified information while MSM looked to in awe with Brian Williams praising the “beautiful display” of Syria being destroyed by Tomahawk missiles.

The first attack under Trump the chemical strike in  Khan Sheikhoun happened months after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had handed evidence to the Hague and the UN watchdog group OPCW that allegedly proves the Syrian rebels used mustard gas against civilians. An assertion that IHS Conflict Monitor had made in November, just a few months before the evidence was submitted. 

A Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) expert Theodore Postol, claimed the Khan Sheikhoun attack might have been staged by bad actors in the region, Yahoo News reported

Postol concluded that the U.S. government’s report does not provide any “concrete” evidence that Assad was responsible, adding it was more likely that the attack was perpetrated by players on the ground.

Postol said: 

 “I have reviewed the White House’s document carefully, and I believe it can be shown, without doubt, that the document does not provide any evidence whatsoever that the US government has concrete knowledge that the government of Syria was the source of the chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun, Syria at roughly 6 a.m. to 7.a.m on 4 April, 2017. "

Postol further questioned the scene stating:

“No competent analyst would miss the fact that the alleged sarin canister was forcefully crushed from above, rather than exploded by a munition within it.“All of these highly amateurish mistakes indicate that this White House report, like the earlier Obama White House Report from Ghouta in 2013, was not properly vetted by the intelligence community as claimed.“I have worked with the intelligence community in the past, and I have grave concerns about the politicisation of intelligence that seems to be occurring with more frequency in recent times – but I know that the intelligence community has highly capable analysts in it.“And if those analysts were properly consulted about the claims in the White House document they would have not approved the document going forward.”

In February, U.S.  Secretary of Defense James Mattis admitted that the U.S. has had “no evidence” that the Syrian government used the banned nerve agent Sarin against its own people. 

Is it possible that the chemical weapons were used by another group in the area to cause these attacks? Yes, entirely possible since the proxy region is infested with various groups. In other words, the attack could be a state-sponsored actor or a non-state actor, i.e., terrorists. 

On November 2016, the New York Times reported that IHS Conflict Monitor, a London-based intelligence collection, and analysis service found that ISIS had used chemical weapons 52 times in Syria and Iraq. This report appears to have been largely ignored and forgotten by the Trump administration, as President Donald Trump previously launched a missile bombardment on a Syrian military base. Without having any prior investigation performed to determine who was actually responsible for the chemical attack. 

Now Trump is threatening to invade Syria or take military action again for the second time while facing the fog of war. Not having enough on ground information to work off of President Trump in fact risks world war three with any military movements within Syria at the drop of a hat. 

Another report that collaborates IHS Conflict Monitor has found that the Islamic State has used sulfur mustard— a chemical warfare agent in the past at least 19 times. The group’s conclusions were based on local news reports, social media and the Islamic State’s own propaganda.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the Syrian government had completed the removal of all chemical weapons from the country in 2014. The WMD handover was corroborated by the United Nations Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and a statement by Senator John Kerry. While the Syrian government is on record surrendering their chemical weapons, the “moderate rebel” groups have used them increasingly. 

Let’s first review reasons why the Syrian government probably didn’t gas their own people. 

First and foremost it wouldn’t benefit the Assad government in any way shape or form. Trump’s administration before the first chemical attack under its helm said it would not pursue regime changes on Syria’s Assad. A few days later the attack happened rolling back on that previous promise. 

This time around Assad allegedly bombed his own people in Douma killing at least 70 and wounding scores of others, mere months right after the U.S. and Russia had announced they would withdraw their respective militaries from the region. 

It is worth noting that the region in Syria Western sources are from is controlled by the Al-Qaeda-allied terrorist group Jaysh al-Islam. Further, the reports we’re seeing cited by the press are coming from the Western-backed and Al-Qaeda-affiliated propaganda firm the White Helmets and the “pro-opposition Ghouta Media Center”. 

During the last chemical weapons attack in April 2017, a doctor on the ground in Khan Sheikhoun, Dr. Shajul Islam, had received several shipments of gas masks in the days leading up to the chemical incident. That same doctor is also one of the main sources for MSM reporting on this chemical attack. Despite the fact, the man is sought by the British government in connection with the abduction of two journalists in Syria and is alleged to have ties to the infamous now dead Jihadi John. 

Islam had his license stripped after being accused of participating in a terrorist kidnapping ring targeting Western journalists PJMedia reported

British journalist John Cantlie was set to testify as the main witness against Islam during the pre-trial hearing. However, Cantlie was then kidnapped a second time.This wasn’t the first time that the U.S. media has used a “medical professional’s” claims to advance war. 

It’s important to remember during the Gulf War a nurse named Nayirah testified that Iraqi soldiers removed babies from incubators in Kuwait. 

It turned out that Nayirah was in fact, Nijirah al-Sabah, the daughter of Kuwait’s ambassador to the United States Saud Nasir Al-Sabah at the time. She was coached by Hill & Knowlton to forge her infamous testimony which was widely reported and repeated throughout the media despite being proven false as 60 minutes exposed in the 1990’s. Knowing this is important to understand, that in order to go to war in a foreign country most Americans have never even heard of existing, requires an emotional response to push that agenda onto the people. 

Not getting off track just to show the previous manipulation that turned out to be false, the group in the Khan Sheikhoun area is also occupied by the NGO White Helmets whose leader Raed Salah, was denied entry into the U.S. at Washington’s Dulles International Airport and deported, due to “extremist connections” while on his way to receive a humanitarian relief award at a gala dinner hosted by USAID. 

As Wikileaks noted the White Helmets are mostly funded by the U.S. government. Although they also get funding from London as its primary PR front in pursuit of a “No Fly Zone” in Syria.

 John Kerry met with this same group. Learn more in the here as reiterating that information would make this article painstakingly long.

This is the same group has faked a crisis scene before that looked shockingly real for the infamous “mannequin challenge.” The video was then pulled from their youtube channel after it raised immense levels of controversy. It was labeled as distasteful but not before others on the internet downloaded it and re-uploaded it.

This isn’t the first time that MSM has fallen for terrorist propaganda in 2016 it was widely reported that there was a parked car bomb that killed 10 in a Baghdad neighborhood. The story was said to have come from police sources, just one small problem after the story went viral a video was leaked online showing the fake staged attack and actors faking injuries. 

https://twitter.com/An0nKn0wledge/status/866699924293005312

So now that those facts are established, there is a backbone to who these rebels consist of. 

Is there any evidence where ISIS otherwise known as the “moderate rebels” as documents obtained by Judicial Watch state the growing jihadi presence within the Syrian rebel groups could have potentially got chemical weapons? 

Yes, in fact, Foreign Policy reported that in 2012 ISIS had captured a Syrian military base that was filled with chemical weapons. That’s one year prior to the 2013 infamous chemical attack where UN envoy investigators were shot at by snipers in Syria trying to investigate the incident. 

According to Foreign Policy, their source —an ISIS fighter Abu Ahmad— the terrorist group found barrels filled with chlorine, sarin, and mustard gas. Al-Nusra an Al-Qaeda affiliate then called for dozens of trucks to transport the chemical weapons according to Ahmad.

The Guardian also reported that ISIS had captured a massive former Iraqi chemical weapons factory with more than 2,000 degraded chemical rockets filled with sarin gas in 2014. 

Then, that same year it was claimed that two abandoned cylinders containing Sarin were reportedlyseized by Syrian government troops, in an area controlled by armed opposition groups and handed over to the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

The letter stated the cylinders were, “reportedly seized by the armed forces of the Syrian Arab Republic in August 2013 in an area reportedly under the control of armed opposition groups.” 

Is there evidence that these weapons have been used before? Indeed they have been used by several jihadist groups and not only ISIS.

Voice of America reported in 2016 that jihadist group Jaysh al-Islam used chemical weapons in attacks against Kurdish troops in Aleppo. 

Syrian rebels have also been caught testing Tekkim chemicals on rabbits and even threatened to use the chemicals against civilians in Syria on a sectarian basis.

Shortly before the recent attack, in late March, Activist Post reported the Syrian Army had claimed that it had uncovered a chemical weapons “workshop” in East Ghouta after having liberated the territory. 

What’s more in that same report the government had warned of the possibility of a falseflag attack blamed on the Syrian government. 

After sweeping through the village of Aftris in Eastern Ghouta following the withdrawal of terrorists from the area, Syrian Army Colonel Feruz Ibrahim told reporters that, “Presumably, the equipment of these munitions could be produced as part of a false flag accusation that government troops used chemical weapons.”

A Secular Syrian; commentator on Syria also expressed there may be a coming falseflag stating his cause for concern on Twitter predicting the attack almost dead on accurately only a few days off.

https://twitter.com/BBassem7/status/979913891747475459

In Mid-March 2018, the Russian Centre for Syrian Reconciliation also published a statement stating that Eastern Ghouta insurgents, according to an anonymous phone call, were preparing a possible provocation involving the use of chemical agents.

Now, Eurocontrol, the European Union body responsible for handling air traffic over Europe, has issued a Rapid Alert Notification (RNA) to flight operators in the eastern Mediterranean, warning them to be ready for NATO rockets being launched into Syria. Presumably, the rockets would be fired from France and Britain. Which France has previously warned it would strike if chemical weapons were found to be used. 

 “Due to the possible launch of air strikes into Syria with air-to-ground and / or cruise missiles within the next 72 hours, and the possibility of intermittent disruption of radio navigation equipment, due consideration needs to be taken when planning flight operations in the Eastern Mediterranean / Nicosia FIR area,” the alert said. 

 Theresa May said that the UK was considering what action was necessary in response to the “barbaric” attack, the Independent reported.

When May was asked if the UK would join any US-led military action in Syria, the prime minister said: 

“What we are currently doing is working urgently with our allies to assess what has happened here.“We… are working urgently with our allies to assess what has happened. But, we are also working with our allies on any action that is necessary.” 

On Monday, U.S. President Donald Trump stated in an address that he was “very strongly, very seriously” considering military action against the government of Bashar Assad over the alleged chemical attack in Douma, Syria on April 7th. Trump expressed that a “major decision” would be taken within the following 24-48 hours. 

While Trump’s State Department ran by CIA Warhawk Mike Pompeo has issued a statementimplicating Assad despite the lack of on-ground investigation into the attack stating Russia’s “unwavering support” for Syria’s government – “ultimately bears responsibility” for the alleged attacks. 

 “The Assad regime and its backers must be held accountable and any further attacks prevented immediately. Russia, with its unwavering support for the regime, ultimately bears responsibility for these brutal attacks, targeting of countless civilians, and the suffocation of Syria’s most vulnerable communities with chemical weapons. By shielding its ally Syria, Russia has breached its commitments to the United Nations as a framework guarantor. It has betrayed the Chemical Weapons Convention and UN Security Council Resolution 2118. Russia’s protection of the Assad regime and failure to stop the use of chemical weapons in Syria calls into question its commitment to resolving the overall crisis and to larger non-proliferation priorities.” 

This would be National Security Council advisor John “Bomb Iran” Bolton’s first week in office a man that is known as a Bush-era lapdog war monger.

An air strike was already carried out against a Syrian air base on Monday, with no statement claiming responsibility for the attack. Damascus, Moscow, and Tehran have all stated that the attack was carried out by Israel from Lebanese airspace, RT reported

A Russian General responded stating Russia may respond with military force to a U.S. strike on Syria. 

 “The double standard policy has overstepped all possible boundaries. At this point, the pro-Putin parliamentary majority United Russia party must responsibly state that we are going to take all political and diplomatic measures, and also military measures if such need arises,” Russian General Vladimir Shamanov said on Tuesday. “Not a single unlawful action will be left without response.” 

Russia also warned of “serious consequences” over U.S. attacks. The Russian Foreign Ministry’s official position is that the chemical attack didn’t happen, Reuters reported

Activist Post reported last year after the first chemical weapons attack, that the State Department had admitted that various groups inside Syria of “rebels” had used chemical weapons in a travel alert. Those groups included – Jobhat al-Nusra, Jobhat Fatah al-Sham, and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham but did not include Jaysh al-Islam

The use of chemical and biological weapons in warfare was banned after World War I — a prohibition that was reaffirmed in 1972 and again in 1993. 

With this renewed information it’s highly possible that Syrian government opposition groups staged a chemical weapons attack. Or as the Russians and Syria have stated previously the chemicals were spread from bombing chemicals that the group had stored. But what journalist will dare write about all this as I have? 

In order to determine what really happened on the ground, a probe is needed by the UN Security Council and the international community. 

The other possibility is much more sinister and that’s the CIA was involved, not a crazy thought considering its history of regime change attempts in the region.

Especially since the OPCW has been previously blocked by Western Nations from conducting a forensic investigation into the Syrian chemical weapons attacks. 

One has to question why that’s the case?

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has announced they have been gathering information from all available sources and analyzing the data. At the same time, OPCW’s Director-General, Ambassador Ahmet Üzümcü, has considered the deployment of a Fact-Finding Mission (FFM) team to Douma to establish facts surrounding these allegations, Relief Web reported

We need to conduct a thorough unbiased investigation before this incident spirals the world into World War Three. Do you hear that sound? That’s the sound of those war drums beating strong. It seems more plausible that the rebels amid defeat did the attack to frame the Syrian government. Particularly because there were multiple warnings about an attack in Syria prior to the actual provocation. 

As you read this, U.S. fighter jets and other coalition jets have been seen flying over Iraq’s border as the U.S. Navy destroyer, the U.S.S. Donald Cook, is underway heading towards the eastern Mediterranean along with a carrier strike group, as well as a guided-missile cruiser and four guided-missile destroyers led by the U.S.S. Harry Truman. 

It has also been reported that Russian fighter jets buzzed the U.S.S. Donald Cook but those claims are unconfirmed and the Navy claimed they were bogus. 

CNN’s Turkey service claimed the destroyer had moved out to Syrian territorial waters where it was harassed by Russian jets. 

However, Pentagon officials have denied that narrative, according to Task & Purpose

 “There are elements of that story that are just simply not true,” Navy spokesman Cmdr. Bill Speaks told Task & Purpose. Speaks said the reports that the ship was being buzzed by Russian aircraft were “completely bogus.” 

 The Pentagon itself has expressed worry over the potential of a missile strike on Syria injuring or killing Russian soldiers in the region, LA Times reported

Russia has warned the U.S. on the record of potential consequences of Western intervention in Syria stating attacks on Syria “could lead to grave repercussions.” 

Russa has further advised the U.S. that Moscow’s envoy to Lebanon (Russian military) reserves the right to shoot down any missiles and destroy the launch sites of those launched towards Syria.

"Russia will comply with its president’s statement on U.S. aggression against Syria, downing the US missiles,” Ambassador Alexander Zasypkin was quoted as saying by al-Manar TV.

“This provocation was like a breeze of the fresh air needed by militants who received such timely support from the US and other Western countries,” Nebenzia said at the UNSC meeting on Tuesday. Nebenzia warned the U.S. and its allies against launching a military strike in Syria, bypassing the UN voting council stating the U.S. was breaking the law. 

 “If you made a decision to carry out an illegal military endeavor, we hope, hope that you will come to your senses. You will be responsible for it yourselves,” Nebenzia said.

Assad has left the border in a Russian convoy headed towards the Syrian-Lebanese border according to reports as a missile strike in Syria is now imminent.

Trump, has sure surrounded himself with a swarm of sick, twisted, psychotic mass killers.

The US power structure wants to insulate EU from China and Russia's growing influence in the Eurasian region.

The way to accomplish this is to make sure both Syria and Turkey remain with the US and EU - something which is falling apart with Erdogan and Russia's presence in Syria. Look at a map, Syria/Turkey are the final puzzle pieces, or territories in the board game Risk.

As a result of this shift, the US will look to cut off the Chinese OBOR strategy (via Turkey/Greece) and also stifle Russia's oil pipeline plans (via Syria). This is what the entire conflict in the Middle East has been about, and will continue to be about moving forward. (1) Economic influence and (2) oil.

Good analysis. I agree that control over energy supplies was a key factor in sparking the Western intervention into Syria in 2011 turning a domestic political crisis into a regional conflict.
Iran is the ultimate goal for Western imperialism once 'control' has been reimposed over Syria, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq.

According to the latest Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists , who created the Doomsday Clock in 1947, the world stands at 2 Minutes to Midnight.
They point out that the world security situation is,''as dangerous as it has been since World War Two''.
I would argue that if the present situation in Syria and wider Middle East gets worse, and yes it can get alot worse, then we will be looking at parallels with the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962.
The USA and its coalition of the killing is driven by a fanatical ideological crusade, that is fulled by economic and geo-political considerations, to reimpose their dominance over the Middle East.
They will only be satisfied once they have full economic, political and military control over the region and its mineral resources.
Having said this, Russia could put a temporary spoke in their wheel by standing up to U.S. aggression right now. Russia must make it clear that it will shoot down any U.S./Israeli missiles fired at Syria.
The history of appeasement shows that failure to stand up to an aggressor power only encourages it to be more aggressive.

It is not all doom and gloom. All of us as individuals can make a difference and have a choice to make. Stand passively by and say nothing or pressure our respective governments to back down from war and go back to diplomacy. As The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists points out:

"It is urgent that, collectively, we put in the work necessary to produce a 2019 Clock statement that rewinds the Doomsday Clock. Get engaged, get involved, and help create that future. The time is now''.

"The USA and its coalition of the killing"

lol

Yes, but the USS Donald Duck that dropped anchor off the coast of Syria... now that's a big target.

Upvote & Follow. A really nice article about the situation. I compared Trump with Hitler a few weeks ago. You might wanna read it! Also feel free to follow and check my happier posts about food and life! Best wishes from Germany

I wouldn't put it past the rebels to attack their own "cause" in order to keep the US in the region. They don't want to see the "support" leave. Then again, ASSAD is also brutal. It's just a shit-storm either way, and it doesn't look like it is going away either.

These people seem to think we ALL have short memories, and that we believe the terrorists white helmets, I remember the tweets in 2014 coming out from Washington, stating the USA had sent a carrier, and that ship had destroyed all Syria's chemical weapons, now they want us to think they hid a few, and we need to be dumb enough to see the war ending, and suddenly Assad goes slightly mental and starts gassing his own people, I think even Homer Simpson would have a hard time agreeing with or believing this bs. The only people that do not want to acknowledge the white helmets for what they are which is Al-Qaeda are hollyweird ceremonies.

This is what Trump has been wanting all along. This maniac will cause WW3. Why should we get involved. The country is skint if you listen to the austerity mongers in the Tory party yet we can find millions to promote wars in other country's. It's time to look after the British people, let the middle east sort it's self out. We always have to interfere , Libya is the perfect case in point and what has that done, it's sparked a wave of mass migration from the region , most wanting to come over here.

It was foretold, he said remove me and the gates of Africa open up, Gaddafi knew that , the UK knew that, they want you watered down to minority status, it is by design not by accident. The more subservient are welcome, you are not, and neither was I, so I fucked off to Poland, stuff the British government, they can swing from nooses for all I care.

The US is skint, 19 trillion in debt. 90 million Americans living below the poverty line. 1 Trillion in failing and failed infrastructure in the US. And the US wants to spend another trillion on a new war in the middle east. I will not be paying for it nor buying their war bonds.

I will give that a read :)

I agree it is quite shameful how British and American news outlets have promoted the White Helmets who are allies of the moderate terrorists.

·
·

That term always makes me laugh, moderate terrorist, how fucking absurd, a terrorist is a terrorist, and 99% wear suits and call themselves politicians, the other 1 % are bankers that like war as it makes plenty more imaginary fiat useless bits of debt to enslave the rest of us with, vote harder, or don't vote at all.

I agree. I should have put moderate in quotation marks! The heinz 57 varieties of sunii jihadi groups running around Syria, as if there are in some kind of video game, are promoted by the MSM and corporate politicians who do not have a clue about the real situation in Syria.

This news very interesting, I like it.
I appreciate your valuable Post........

Well what can be said here, lets again look at the facts shall we.
--March 29th Trump said that the US will be pulling out of Syria
--April 7th the Syrian government reportedly gassed their own people with Sarin
--Back in 2017 the Syrian government was accused of gassing there own people with sarin as well
--2/8/18 General Mattis finally admitted there was no evidence that Assad/Syrian government gassed his own people after saying that there was no doubt about it and launching airstrikes as a result
http://www.newsweek.com/now-mattis-admits-there-was-no-evidence-assad-using-poison-gas-his-people-801542

So to recap, Trump says the US will hopefully be getting out of Syria, the Syrian government in response to this decides to gas/attack its own people to make sure the US stays in Syria (which makes absolutely no sense).

Its already been proven and shown that this exact same thing happened back in 2017 and was proven to be false already.

For the final kicker, the US is working in a joint response with the United Kingdom and France on these latest attacks. Both countries are a shill for the deep state and both countries have Prime ministers are little else than talking puppets for there masters in Macron and May. If nothing else gives you red flags, than this should and if these countries are involved, its probably bullshit.
