Supposedly 60 people were killed and another 1,000 injured.
Last April, more than 80 people were killed in a suspected chemical attack in the country.
Back then it was “Sarin or a Sarin-like substance” that was used, while this time around some are saying it was supposedly chlorine gas.
I say chlorine because early news reports indicated that this is what people were smelling.
Still, many figure the chemical was Sarin, like was used last year. What most say is that the chemical agent was in a barrel bomb that was dropped from a plane onto the area.
We do know that Sarin is a colorless and odorless agent, first outlawed in 1997. It attacks the nervous system and kills you in minutes.
Its purest form is 26 times deadlier than cyanide.
This is the same chemical agent that was used on those two Russians in England in March. Isn’t that convenient for the pro-war-with-Russia crowd?
Moscow called it a “fake chemical attack” and that calling it a chemical attack was “a hasty conclusion.”
Here are 4 reasons why I agree with the Russians. This was a false flag attack, one that aims to produce a reaction that in no way benefits you or your family.
Mostly it benefits those that profit from war, and want to see it going indefinitely.
Let me explain.
#1 The White Helmets
The Syrian Civil Defense are also called the “White Helmets,” as that’s what they wear on their heads.
This is an NGO group. Some call them actors. In 2017 they won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Subject for “The White Helmets.”
The White Helmets have put out several videos and images of the alleged aftermath of the recent chemical attacks.
In the recent video, for instance, we see babies breathing through oxygen masks.
- But then why aren’t the White Helmets wearing gas masks, too?
- Why aren’t the White Helmets getting doused in water as well?
- How did the White Helmets get to the area so fast…or at least in time to film the aftermath before everyone died?
- Why are the White Helmets not wearing protective clothing in such a dangerous, chemical-infested area?
#2 No Signs of Chemicals Found
The Syrian Red Crescent Society, an independent humanitarian organization of public utility, has found no traces of chemical agents in the Douma area, where the attack supposedly occurred.
The Russian Reconciliation Center also spoke with doctors in the area where the attack supposedly occurred, and those doctors didn’t see any signs of chemical poisoning.
We do know that traces of Sarin gas can stay on your clothes for up to 30 minutes. Despite this, none of the White Helmets died, nor those family members tending to victims.
Remember, early corporate news reports said that chlorine was smelled, yet Sarin has no odor.
In addition to this, we know that just last week, 250 residents of the Syrian towns of Majdal and Khattab were kidnapped. Many in Douma say these missing residents were among the dead in the aftermath of the supposed chemical attack.
#3 A Ruse to Keep America in the War
Last week Donald Trump signaled to the world that he was ready to pull U.S. troops out of Syria.
A few days later we have this chemical attack.
What a coincidence!
Could the attack have been real, perhaps perpetrated by the Russians or Syrians to get control of that country?
Yes, that could be the truth.
Could it also be that rogue agents within the American government or the American military industrial complex perpetrated this attack to keep the U.S. in Syria?
Yes, that could be the truth.
It could also be true that the American allies in the war – what we call Syrian rebels, and which are in fact former members of Al Qaeda and ISIS – perpetrated this attack.
Remember, our allies in this war are the same people that brought down the World Trade Center nearly 17 years ago.
Since the war in Syria began in 2011, the country has seen exports fall by 90% and their economy has lost $260 billion. Oil exports alone have fallen from $4.7 billion to $140 million. It used to be 47 lira to the U.S. dollar, and now it’s 520 to 1.
The arms dealers are the ones that really profit. Here are the largest arms dealing companies and their 2012 arms sales, profits, and employees:
- General Dynamics: $20.9 billion in arms sales, with -$332 million in profits and 92,000 employees.
- Raytheon: $22.5 billion in arms sales, with $1.9 billion in profits and 67,000 employees.
- BAE Systems: $26.9 billion in arms sales, with $2.6 billion in profits and 88,000 employees.
- Boeing: $27.6 billion in arms sales, with $3.9 billion in profit and 174,000 employees.
- Lockheed Martin: $36 billion in arms sales, with $2.6 billion in profit and 120,000 employees.
Those will be the companies supplying the Syrian rebels, or what we should rightly call the remnants of ISIS and Al Qaeda. The Russians supply $1.5 billion in arms to Assad each year.
Over $1 billion in arms sales were made to Syria by European countries since 2012.
#4 The Anti-Ballistic Missile Problem
We know what happens when there’s a supposed chemical attack in Syria – missiles start to fly.
This was the response a year ago – we sent in 59 Tomahawk missiles to ‘send a message.’
The big message, however, was how badly our missiles did. Yeah, the American corporate media didn’t report it much, but those missiles were shot down.
34 of the 59 Tomahawk missiles were shot down before they reached their targets.
And that was before Russia upgraded their systems.
Putin deployed several S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems to Syria earlier this year.
This is a far cry better than the S-200 missiles, which had been in operation since 1967 and which Russia first sent to Syria in 1983. The Syrians now have about 45 to 50 of the weapons systems.
There may only be 4 of the S-400 systems, but the system is new – only out since 2015 – and they pack a much bigger punch. They’re more expensive, too – India wants to buy 5 of the systems from Russia for $5 billion (Turkey is getting a much better deal: 4 of the systems for $2.5 billion).
Trump wanted to get out of Syria, but that wouldn’t have profited the warmongers.
They pulled him back in via another fake chemical attack.
The same politicians that decry the Russian investigation as fake news bought the recent chemical attack hook, line and sinker…and without any questioning.
- We saw the White Helmets rush in just in time to get video images of people foaming at the mouth…though the White Helmets didn’t seem to be in any danger, despite not wearing protective clothing or masks.
- We’ve learned that no traces of chemical agents have been found in the area where the attack supposedly occurred, and area hospitals were not inundated with chemical attack patients.
- We see that arms dealers in America and Europe have steadily profited from the Syrian War, and want to keep it going.
- We know that Syrian/Russian anti-aircraft missiles are better than they were, meaning more American missiles will be shot down before they reach their target…which in turn means more of those missiles will have to be ordered from the arms dealers. Each Tomahawk missile costs $1.9 million.
There’s an old saying in America: ‘Don’t believe everything you see on TV.’
For some reason, we’ve forgotten that.
Or maybe we just choose to believe what we want to believe, if it aligns with our worldview and preconceived notions.
In this case the American media has told us for years how bad Russia and Syria are.
So automatically, Americans see a supposed chemical attack and it must have been perpetrated by the ‘bad guys.’
Sadly, I think the biggest bad guys are those within our own government and those that we call allies.
I wish my country and my fellow citizens were smarter, but they’re not.
Sometime over the next few hours a massive retaliatory attack will take place in Syria, directed by America. Airlines already know this.
And so the war will drag on while relations between Russia and America sour further.
The arms dealers will profit and the corporate news agencies will see their ratings go up.
The war will never end; there’s just too many people making money for that to happen.
