The Trump Regime and Imperial Partners Against Syrian Liberation
by Stephen Lendman
In Tehran on Friday, Vladimir Putin said Russia has indisputable proof that (US-supported) terrorists intend staging a false flag CW attack in Syria to be wrongfully blamed on Damascus.
“We consider as unacceptable the wish to move terrorists away from the blow at the pretext of protecting civilian population, as well as to inflict damage to the Syrian government forces,” he said, adding:
“Apparently, attempts to stage the use of poisonous agents (falsely claiming they’re) by the Syrian authorities have this goal.”
“We have conclusive evidence that (terrorists together with White Helmets) are preparing such operations and provocations.”
According to Russian Defense Ministry spokesman General Igor Konashenkov, “(f)ull readiness of all (anti-government terrorists and White Helmets) involved in the staging of the (CW false flag) should be ensured by the evening of September 8.
During a late August Security Council session, Syrian UN envoy Bashar al-Jaafari said “I put in your hands documented information on the preparations taken by Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization and the affiliated groups to use the chemical weapons against civilians in Idlib province to accuse the Syrian Arab Army and to justify any aggression that might be launched on Syria.”
Eight canisters of toxic chlorine were sent to Halouz village in Idlib, accompanied by US/UK-funded White Helmets terrorists, along with US/UK-supported al-Nusra and allied cutthroat killer jihadists, Jaafari explained.
What began in late August is preparation for a CW false flag in Idlib on September 8 if Konashenkov is right – to be wrongfully blamed on Damascus, a pretext for more US, UK, French terror-bombing of Syrian sites, escalating conflict, wanting Russia-led resolution efforts thwarted.
Separately, Turkish despot Recep Tayyip Erdogan tweeted he won’t watch from the sidelines “if the world turns a blind eye to the killing of tens of thousands of innocent people” in Idlib – code language for supporting anti-Syrian terrorists, opposing the country’s liberation.
He doesn’t give a hoot about what happens to civilians in Syria, Turkey or anywhere else, concerned only about his self-serving interests, hostile to regional peace and stability.
The battle to liberate Idlib began. It remains to be seen how Washington, NATO, Israel and Turkey respond.
If they intervene against government forces, conflict will escalate dangerously – pitting Damascus, Moscow, Iran, and Hezbollah against US-led dark forces and Erdogan, playing the US and Russian cards simultaneously to achieve his own objectives.
