Former UK Ambassador to Syria Peter Ford told BBC Radio Scotland on Tuesday it makes no sense for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to gas his own people and warned a US strike on Syria could kill "scores" of Russian soldiers and trigger World War 3.
Ford said the military action we're on the brink of taking is "risking our own safety" and it's likely we're being played by Jihadists who staged the attack to "produce hysteria" and trigger Western intervention.
"What the Jihadis have done is jerk our leash," he said.

Excerpts from RT:
"I don't think Assad is in the least worried that the inspectors will find out his guilt – he is probably not guilty on this occasion," he said. "We have to engage our brains as well as our emotions here, not be stampeded by those videos which are described as being unverified, but which by dint of being repeated over and over again come to acquire a spurious credibility," Ford added. "We have to ask ourselves what are the sources in this stampede to war?"Follow InformationLiberation on Twitter, Facebook and Gab.
