We must have some very retarded people working in the federal government. Nobody believes this narrative that Bashar Al-Assad has been gassing his own people for no particular reason. Yet despite that, they’re pushing the narrative again. Presumably this will be used to try and get Donald Trump to order greater military intervention in Syria.
Fox News ran a recent piece pushing this insanity.
The previous videos that were used as supposed proof of Assad gassing people was retard-tier propaganda. The last one was just a bunch of children being sprayed with water hoses. That video didn’t prove shit.
And why would Assad launch a chemical weapons attack and invite further military intervention from the United States? He along with the Russians and Iranians have taken back control over much of his country. Idlib is the only area left that needs to be liberated from Islamic terrorists. He would be insane to order such a thing. It makes no strategic sense from a political or military perspective.
The Russians have even come out stating that staged footage alleging to show a chemical weapons attack by Assad in Idlib is already being distributed to media organizations.
Footage, meant to serve as proof that the Syrian government has conducted a chemical weapons attack in Idlib, Syria, is to be handed to global news outlets by the end of Tuesday, the Russian military claims.
Several Middle East TV channels and a US news channel have been sent to Jisr al-Shughur in Syria’s Idlib Governorate to produce the footage needed for the provocation, a statement by the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation said. It added the intelligence came from local residents of Jisr al-Shughur.
“All the footage of the staged provocation in Jisr al-Shughur is to be delivered to the newsrooms of TV channels, which are to broadcast it after its publication on social media,” the statement claimed.
It also said that an Islamist group was provided with two canisters of a “chlorine-based chemical” for the purpose of the operation.
The Russian military said the footage would include scenes of White Helmets operatives treating supposed victims of an apparent barrel bomb chemical weapon attack by Damascus.
Moscow has repeatedly warned that a false flag chemical weapon attack was being prepared in Idlib, giving the US and its allies justification to attack Syrian government forces.
Yeah, so since Assad is on the verge of taking back Idlib from Islamic terrorists, we see this chemical weapons narrative pushed again. Convenient is it not? At least the Russians are trying to preemptively counter it.
The thing is, nobody believes this insanity. If you read the comments under the YouTube videos covering this story, almost every single comment is calling the narrative bullshit. Nobody believes Assad is ordering gas attacks on his own people.
And get this, (((YouTube))) just terminated a number of Syrian state news channels.
Even if Assad was ordering gas attacks, why should any of us give a fuck? What’s happening in Syria is none of our business. We have far bigger problems that need to be addressed.
