Fake News Campaign on Use of CWs in Syria
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Syrian and allied forces, greatly aided by Russian airpower, are relentlessly smashing US-supported terrorists.
Washington, NATO, Israel and their rogue allies want things reversed to regain the upper hand, escalating aggressive war their strategy.
They want Syrian sovereignty destroyed, overwhelmingly popular Assad ousted, pro-Western puppet governance installed, Iran isolated, and the diabolical scheme repeated against its legitimate ruling authorities.
Imperialism works this way, humanity’s greatest scourge. Endless high crimes of war and against humanity attest to its barbarity.
America is indisputably the most vicious regime in world history, defiling democratic values and rule of law principles for centuries, raping and destroying one country after another – on the phony pretext of liberating them.
In her latest weekly briefing, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova explained continued “positive…military-political” developments in Syria.
Steady advances are being made against US-supported terrorists, including elements masquerading as moderate rebels.
All fighters comprising anti-government forces are cold-blooded killers, death squads imported from scores of countries, used as imperial foot soldiers, committing gruesome atrocities Western media scoundrels ignore.
“(T)errorists are trying to reverse the course of events” without success, Zakharova explained. “The successes of government forces are punctuated by bloody conflicts between the terrorists themselves.”
Fabricated allegations claiming “Syrian authorities (are) ‘planning a new chemical attack’ come from Washington…(N)o evidence…substantiate(s) them.”
“These accusations and threats sound cynical against the backdrop of the openly illegal actions by the US-led anti-ISIS coalition with regard to sovereign Syria, such as the missile strike against the Shayrat airfield on April 7, the bombing of government forces in Deir ez-Zor and al-Tanf and the shooting down of a Syrian jet bomber.”
“On top of that, a large number of Syrian civilians were killed as a result of bombing and shelling by coalition forces in Raqqa and other cities.”
A new disinformation campaign was “launched by Washington with support from London and Paris” – falsely claiming Syrian “preparation for a new crime against its own people with the use of chemical weapons.”
The Trump administration did nothing new. “It only dusted off the (Obama administration’s) playbook” as a pretext to escalate naked aggression.
“(T)he scenario will be the same.” A real or fake incident will occur in terrorist-held territory – resulting in real or fabricated civilian casualties.
Phony videos and photos will surface, purporting to show dead and injured victims. Reports on the alleged incident “will go viral online” – Syria falsely blamed like so many previous times.
“Then it will be proved that it was all staged in the same way as some well-known organizations demonstrated before.”
“Militants posing as the opposition concerned about Syria’s future and as eyewitnesses will go on camera. No effort will be spared to persuade the regional community to work for the Western TV and social media audience, providing firsthand accounts of the attack.”
US and allied intelligence official “will claim to have airtight evidence proving (Assad’s) responsibility.” Failing to reveal it shows none exists.
Not a shred of credible evidence proves Syrian forces used CWs any time throughout years of conflict. Plenty of indisputable evidence showed US-supported terrorists used toxic agents numerous times against civilians and government forces.
Zakarova: “One hundred percent of chemical weapons that were under the Syrian government’s control were destroy in 2013 and 2014 under international oversight. This is a fact” beyond dispute.
Separately on Facebook, Zakharova explained “a media propaganda campaign on the ‘use of chemical weapons by Damascus’ has begun.”
Clearly, Washington and its rogue allies are behind it, creating a pretext for further aggression, targets likely already chosen. Attacks could happen any time, including more by Israel for fabricated reasons.
“There will be more of such videos, and they will be of different quality – either low-grade…or of Hollywood level. There will be many fakes. The planned campaign is a massive one,” Zakharova explained.
Washington and its rogue allies likely intend stopping at nothing to accomplish their imperial objectives.
In September 2015, Russia intervened responsibly in Syria at the request of its government.
Will Putin go the extra mile to prevent the diabolical agenda of US-led dark forces from succeeding – doing whatever it takes?
Saving Syria from imperial conquest is crucial. The region’s fate depends on it. So does Russia’s security.
If Syria falls, Iran is next. If regime change succeeds against its government, Russia and China will lose valued allies, weakening them geopolitically, making them more vulnerable to US regime change efforts against their countries.
They’re both on Washington’s target list – the only two nations able to strongly contest its quest for unchallenged global dominance.
Its diabolical scheme aims to subjugate all nations, transform them into US vassal states, control their resources and exploit their people, instituting neo-serfdom on a global scale.
The horror of this agenda should mobilize Sino/Russian unity to stop it. Bullies like America usually back off when confronted by formidable powers.
It’s time to put this thesis to the test before dark forces in Washington enslave us all.
