If the sarin attack in Douma yesterday isn’t a fairy story and people really have been horribly killed, I hope the perpetrators are quickly identified and charged with the crime. We cannot expect justice to be done, sadly, because the people responsible for recent illegal wars – and over a million deaths – are not only walking free but growing financially richer from their psychopathy by the day.
To echo Theresa May, I think it is highly likely that the terrorists in the area where the barrel bomb was allegedly dropped are the perpetrators. I hope, though, that the Syrian Government response is the correct one – the event was a fabrication and nobody was hurt. “Victims” seen in videos and still photographs could be the product of make-up artists at a White Helmets Propaganda Studio. For this to be the case, though, the Union of Medical Relief Organizations, a US-based charity, would have to be misleading the BBC by stating that 70 deaths had so far been confirmed.
The Syrian Government had nothing to gain from committing this crime. The war against the American funded, trained and supported terrorists is almost won. Why encourage justified opprobrium when so much of the libelous, slanderous, and hypocritical variety has been endured for years? When this poor, ravaged country is free of terrorists. the men in hazmat suits can clean up, and hopefully find the evidence that points to the real criminals. Don’t expect any surprises.
