US/UK Investigating New Assad Chemical Attacks In Syria

Tyler Durden's picture




 

It seems tensions in Ukraine are not escalating fast enough for the US warmongers. As The Daily Mail reports, allegations have emerged that Syria's Assad regime has carried out four new chemical attacks in the suburbs of Damascus. We can only assume that there is clear "YouTube-able" proof of this as The White House said it was "monitoring reports." The attacks were carried out using industrial rather than weaponised agents to lessen the chances of military intervention from Western powers, it was reported. UK diplomats added that they're "aware of the allegations but not able to corroborate them at this time." The Syrian National Coalition said, "we condemn the Assad regime’s gas attacks," and called on the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to carry out an investigation.

 

The Daily Mail reports,

Allegations have emerged that Syria has carried out four new chemical attacks in the suburbs of Damascus.

 

The attacks were carried out using industrial rather than weaponised agents to lessen the chances of military intervention from Western powers, it was reported.

 

One attack took place on March 27 and targeted rebel fighters in the suburb of Harasta, Syrian rebels and doctors claim.

 

The other attacks took place in Daraya on January 13 and in this month in Adra and Jobar, according to The Times.

The White House is investigating (eyes glued to YouTube we are sure)...

  • *CARNEY SAYS U.S. MONITORING REPORTS OF CHEMICAL ATTACK IN SYRIA

As is the UK...

A Foreign Office spokesman told MailOnline: ‘We’re aware of the allegations but not able to corroborate them at this time.’

The (allegedly US backed) rebels are not happy...

The Syrian National Coalition, meanwhile, claims that the attacks have resulted in fatalities, with three killed in Harasta and three in Daraya.

 

It said: 'We condemn the Assad regime’s gas attacks... and we call on the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to carry out an investigation.'

 

In the Harasta attack, symptoms suffered by patients included ‘hallucination, accelerated pulse, trouble breathing and, in some cases, suffocation’, The Jerusalem Post quoted the Syrian American Medical Society as saying.

It's worth bearing in mind that the chemical weapons clean-up is not going well...

President Bashar al-Assad's government has missed several deadlines.

 

‘The Syrians control the timeline. They've committed to deliver the materials no later than the 27 of April. If they meet that commitment we would be starting the process within days,’ Rear Admiral Bob Burke, director of U.S. naval operations in Europe and Africa, said.

 

Assad has cited unrest around Latakia as the most recent reason for delays in delivering the chemicals still in Syria.

We await a new red-line and the latest round of Kerry-isms to show just how much YouTube proof the US has that Russia's other "friend" is up to no good again...

Oh, by the way, those satellite photos released by NATO showing Russian forces massing near the Ukrainian border? They were from August 2013 and reveal nothing more than scheduled exercises which included Ukrainian forces alongside Russian forces.

A republic is a nation or empire ruled by elites via their own custom-fashioned laws.
A Fascist nation is ruled by corporate merger to government. You can have a Fascist Republic - and you do.

This is the rise of  the Republic not its fall, and this is your lesson. A Republic is a damnation upon the people, the making of forever-slaves. No republic can exist on Earth without a large slave population.

Media blacks out Seymour Hersh exposé of US lies on Syrian gas attack


By Patrick Martin 
8 April 2014


Nearly two days after the London Review of Books published a lengthy exposé by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh detailing efforts by the Turkish government to stage a provocation to bring the US military directly into the civil war in Syria, the US media has blacked out the report.

Hersh, who has authored groundbreaking investigative reports uncovering US atrocities, including the My Lai massacre during the Vietnam War and the torture of prisoners at Abu Ghraib during the Iraq war, titled his article on last August’s sarin gas attack outside of Damascus “The Red Line and the Rat Line.”

The “red line” refers to President Obama’s threat to attack Syria if the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons. The “rat line” was a CIA-organized supply chain running from Benghazi, Libya through southern Turkey and into Syria, which was used to smuggle weapons to the Syrian “rebels.”

The article describes efforts by the Turkish government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to assist Syrian “rebels” of the al-Nusra Front, an Islamist force linked to Al Qaeda, in staging the poison gas attack on Ghouta on August 21, 2013.

Hundreds died in the atrocity, which the Obama White House seized on as acasus belli to bomb Syria. Faced with deep divisions within the American state and problems mobilizing US allies in Europe, and broad popular opposition to a new war in the Middle East, Obama eventually pulled back and in September accepted a face-saving deal brokered by Russian President Vladimir Putin for the supervised destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons stocks.

Of course we have a chemical attack. The USA is out of control, totally. There is nothing they will not do or try. Taking down Syria at just the moment Ukraines coup government has it's thugs, troops and tanks ready to crush Eastern Russian Ukraine. As the NATO army goes into Donetsk and Karkov, Israel and America will level Syria and install their Al-Qaeda forces to govern the place.

I hated Bush with a passion second to no man on earth, only the liar cunt Obama is a bigger threat to America than Bush was. Biggest wanker liar Neocon fuckwad ever existed. Obama, this one is for you "Go fuck yourself you liar cunt warmonger insane slave to Neocon Washington and Zion."

Yes,

Let's see...

Yesterday Putin told Europe he was shutting off the GAS because there are NAZI's rrunning around in the Ukraine, and in the current government (in which government everyone except Yanukovich is the same as last year).

Today, Europe and the US announce that they're investigating a really, really, really, really, good reason why they might have to go to war in Syria which TOTALLY COINCIDENTALLY is the holdout for a gas pipeline from Qatar to Europe.

Nope.  All Coincidence is just your imagination. 

IT IS NOT ABOUT GAS!!!!!

It REALLY IS about Aggressive Nazis who want to divide and occupy Russia and are already doing it to Ukraine!

And it REALLY IS about Chemical Weapons in Syria.

STOP THAT!  TURN OFF YOUR BRAIN!  GO SIT IN A CORNER AND CRY IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IT!  IT IS ABOUT THAT BECAUSE I SAID IT WAS.  ALL THE REST OF THIS GAS TALK IS JUST COINCIDENCE AND HOT AIR!  REALLY!

a little late to the party aren't they?

the alt. media was all over this two or three weeks ago and blew it open as what you would expect, another false flag this time via Turkey. while i'm not sure how much of a case they will be able to make for intervention based on these most recent incidents it does seem to be part of an attempt to renew interest in bombing the shit out of Syria, or what's left of it at least.

halving said that, the fact that they appear to be arming the so called "moderate rebels" with heavy weapons is perhaps more telling of  Washington's intentions (desperation?) in Syria. considering the administration has resisted doing that up until now out of fear that such weapons would fall into the "wrong hands" and be used against allies specifically Israel. but it seems the situation is such that they no longer care who uses what on who at this point, in other words they seem to have changed tactics from a Libya style controlled regime change to plunging Syria into total and complete chaos.    

 with Russia now commanding the lions share of western attention, money and resources the west may be about to resort to a scorched earth type policy regarding Syria as opposed to just letting Assad re-take the country which he is currently doing.

either way the storm clouds gathering on the horizon do not portend good thing things to come...

for anyone.

There are four good sources of Gas for Europe:

1) Russia

2) Central Asian Republics (Kazakhstan)

3) Qatar

4) North Africa (Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Niger, Nigeria)

 

If I add the pipeline routes to that lst it looks like this:

1) Russia  via Baltic Sea and via Ukraine

2) Central Asian Republics via Kazakhstan -> Azerbaijan -> Abkhasia, Georgia -> Ukraine

3) Qatar via Saudi Arabia -> Iraq -> Syria -> Turkey -> Europe

4) North Africa (Nigeria, -> Niger -> Algeria & Libya & Tunisia -> Europe

 

Russian invasions since 2007:

Abkhasia, Georgia and Ukraine,

 

Russian allies who refused European pipelines and rapidly developed revolutions since 2007:

Syria, Libya, Tunisia

 

Western Allies who agreed to pipelines and who whose governments are teetering:

Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Iraq

Not bad, but how likely are shipments of gas from Libya to Europe? If it was available they'd be doing it already. There's also the question of volume. Russia has lots, but what about Qatar? Russiahas  many reasons for grabbing territory, and selling nat gas is only one reason and maybe they're not related at all.
