Russian President Vladimir Putin said Sunday their intelligence indicates the alleged chemical attack in Syria was a false flag to discredit Assad, and more such attacks are planned.
As I reported yesterday, the script has already been written by the US and they're planning to accuse Russia of being involved in last week's attacks.
Russia has information of a potential incident similar to the alleged chemical attack in Idlib province, possibly targeting a Damascus suburb, President Vladimir Putin said. The goal is to discredit the government of Syrian President Assad, he added.
Damascus denied the allegations, noting that the targeted area may have been hosting chemical weapons stockpiles belonging to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) or Al-Nusra Front jihadists.This is a total repeat of the war in Iraq. Yet they don't even have a 9/11 or anthrax attack to serve as an excuse. They're just running with this whole "babies were gassed in a far-off land," a land which most Americans couldn't even point out on a map.
I don't want to fearmonger, but I'd say odds are the neocons are working on creating another "excuse" domestically as we speak.
It was the first time the US had targeted Syrian troops deliberately. The White House says it will repeat military action in response to any possible new chemical weapon attacks.Can any of this even be argued? As former British ambassador to Syria Peter Ford told the BBC last week, "Trump has just given the jihadis a thousand reasons to stage fake flag operations."
I don't even think Trump is very involved in this but it doesn't matter either way. A coup went down last week and neocons are now totally in control. They've said openly for years they want to wage proxy wars with Russia and China. It's not a coincidence the Trump administration is now preparing for war with Syria and North Korea.
