I listened to some of the speech given by Prime Minister Theresa May in the House of Commons this afternoon. but after a few minutes of the debate that followed Jeremy Corbyn’s response, I began to feel ill.
I think the main reason I find myself sympathetic to the Syrian and Russian side of the Propaganda War is that I’ve had to deal with false accusations of committing crimes and misdemeanors – and suffer subsequent smearing amounting to character assassination. I know how difficult it is to prove a negative.
There were a lot of very ugly people in the UK regime’s parliament this afternoon. I agree totally with PM May that any individual or group or state that uses chemical weapons of any kind against other human beings should be dealt with severely. Where I differ from her, most of her colleagues and members of the opposition is in their assumption that only Bashir al Assad can possibly use chemical weapons. I have no doubt that all his stocks were not destroyed in 2013, as he and Russia suggest. I’m equally certain that rebel terrorists have committed the heinous crime of using gas and nerve agents against the Syrian Army and civilians on multiple occasions.
I would say that 99% of the talking heads that the BBC invites into its studios take it for granted that Assad carried out the 2013, 2017 and 2018 chemical attacks. I have yet to hear one acknowledge that an Islamic terrorist could do such a thing.
It is just as bad in the United States. On the mainstream media, pundits don’t seem to have heard James Mattis say that the US has no compelling evidence (yet) that Assad was responsible for any of these three attacks. It takes a few minutes to find a source online that has this to say:-
However, the UN’s own extensive 2013 investigation into the first reported uses of chemical weapons in Syria support the consistently stated Russian position that the armed opposition in Syria have long possessed and have repeatedly used chemical weapons. When the UN undertook its first on the ground inquiry in Syria, it admitted in its 82-page December 2013 report (initiated after the August 2013 Ghouta attack), that it considered both sides of the war to be in possession of mass casualty producing chemical weapons. This is important, given that at the time the US position was that only the Syrian government could have possibly launched chemical attacks. According to the UN report:
The United Nations Mission remains deeply concerned that chemical weapons were used in the ongoing conflict between the parties in the Syrian Arabic Republic, which has added yet another dimension to the continued suffering of the Syrian people.
The report stated that chemical weapons were “probably used” at five sites in Syria during the conflict up to that point (2013). Most significant is that among the five sites the UN could not find a single instance where members of the armed rebels opposition were victims, but instead found that at two sites, the victims were Syrian government soldiers, and at a third, the victims were Syrian Army personnel and civilians.

It is a terrible injustice that the American, UK and French regimes should attack Syria as they did on Saturday morning and threaten them with further attacks if there is another incident involving chemical weapons in the future. What would you do if you were a head-chopping, child murdering Islamic crazy? Exactly what you did in Douma on the 7th April.
If Theresa May and her cronies were really serious about ending the suffering of the Syrian people she would stop funding the terrorists and leave the Syrian Army to “mop up” and return the country to peace, reconstruction and, one hopes, healing and prosperity. From interviews he has given, Bashar al Assad will accept the judgment of his people at the ballot box. Until that day comes he will continue to fight for his country.
Much was made this afternoon about the Russians preventing the OPCW from going to the attack site in Douma, almost mocking the reason – “security issues” – as if there couldn’t possibly be any. I would be extremely disappointed if the Syrian Government and Russia are trying to hide something (like their guilt for the Douma attack) from the world. I have them marked down as more trustworthy than the British.
As for the French… I mentioned in an earlier post that Macron had said he had irrefutable proof that Assad was responsible for the chlorine gas event in Douma. Weasel words without that proof, I said. You can read the declassified French Intelligence Report here.
Russia is still guilty for Novichokking the Skripals in Salisbury as far as the UK regime is concerned. BeeZee the cat is out of the bag and running around cyberspace. I’d like to think he (or she) will become a legend – and not meet the fate of the Skripal’s moggie and guinea pigs.
