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)...


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...

I imagine the trifecta of bringing up some more of Iran about going to get a nuke within the week (something that has been said for a decade now).  The lesson should be clear - mess with the PetroDollar and you mess with Uncle Sam.

Hey , we got to stretch this out to July so we can really have the "war to end all wars"

on the 100th anniversary of the last one.This time it probably will be.

WWIV will be fought by cockroaches and politicians,but I repeat myself.

Sure seems warmonger-in-chief wants to. Doing everything possible to get USA bitchslapped by Putin.

I fully expect Russia/China to launch their pan-asian gold-based monetary system any week now. It's so close I can feel it.

Then Putin can sit back relax and watch America die.

These lying, war-mongering fucks just never give up.

The Syrian envoy presented to the UN a March 25th letter which stated that the Syrian government had intercepted communications indicating insurgents were planning chemical weapon attacks which they would try to blame on the Syrian government.

The MSM news received by Americans has become less credible than anything ever delivered by Pravda to the Soviets.

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.

Guys in charge of propaganda too tired to invent new bullshit they were so excited to put up once. Or perhaps it's the new type, the apparatchicks who can't invent shit and just regurgirate the old shit. Fuck 'em, I like propaganda if it bears some novelty.

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.

  • Rome
  • 'Democratic' Republic of Congo (which is fucked completely)
  • 'Democratic' People's Republic of Korea DPRK aka NORTH KOREA

Learned your lesson yet?

Quite a lot of people look to the hyperinflation foisted upon the citizens of the Weimar REPUBLIC.

Why would the FSA revolt?  On the other hand those of us who actually work and pay taxes to support our family don't have the luxary of revolt.  That is until we are forced to.
