Ron Paul: "Zero Chance" Assad Behind Chemical Weapons Attack In Syria; Likely A False Flag

Tyler Durden's picture

According to former Congressman Ron Paul, the chemical weapons attack in Khan Sheikhoun that killed 30 children and has led to calls for the Trump administration to intervene in Syria could have been a false flag attack.

As Paul Joseph Watson details, pointing out that the prospect of peace in Syria was moving closer before the attack, with ISIS and Al-Qaeda on the run, Paul said the attack made no sense.

“It looks like maybe somebody didn’t like that so there had to be an episode,” said Paul, asking, “who benefits?”

 

It doesn’t make any sense for Assad under these conditions to all of a sudden use poison gases – I think there’s zero chance he would have done this deliberately,” said Paul.

he former Congressman went on to explain how the incident was clearly being exploited by neo-cons and the deep state to enlist support for war.

“It’s the neo-conservatives who are benefiting tremendously from this because it’s derailed the progress that has already been made moving toward a more peaceful settlement in Syria,” said Paul.

Many have questioned why Assad would be so strategically stupid as to order a chemical weapons attack and incite the wrath of the world given that he is closer than ever to winning the war against ISIS and jihadist rebels.

Just five days before the attack, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said, “The longer-term status of President Assad will be decided by the Syrian people,” implying a definite shift in U.S. foreign policy away from regime change in Syria.

Why would Assad put such assurances in jeopardy by launching a horrific chemical attack, allowing establishment news outlets like CNN to once against use children as props to push for yet another massive war in the Middle East?

A voice of reason. Surely Trump could use a patriot like Ron Paul in his administration. 

Manthong's picture

If President Trump does not fire and publicly humiliate any of those who told him that the Syrians attacked civilians with chemical weapons, he will lose a lot of respect from those of us who know better.

Tulsi Gabbard's Twitter is ablaze with "shame on you Tulsi, you know who is responsible as you met with him a few months ago. "

The propaganda is so prevalent, the indoctrinated so blinded, there is no way at this point for the populace to have any idea of "what is truth?".

Disagree. One can know the truth. Whenever crap happens in the Middle East. ISRAEL is behind it.

Trump is too sharp not to sense something smells fishy. It's a deliberate ignorance.

pods's picture

I say this shit loud to anyone who will listen. It was NOT Assad. 

Too bad most of the rest of the US cannot find two brain cells to rub together. I imagine facebook is alive with links to GoFundMe pages for all the dead babies that Assad personally killed.

If you think about this for TWO seconds you will see that this is the absolute WORST time for Assad to do this. He's winning, and the USA decided to mind it's own fucking business for a change.  So now is when he does it?

Time to start fucking shooting these pressitutes. Man THEM Unpersons.  It's treasonous how the USA operates nowadays.

At least the collapse is coming. Time to tell the armed forces to go the fuck home and if they are called to fight yet another bankers war, for them to disobey.

Excuse me, what # war is this going to be that is to be waged on yet another country that happens to be an enemy of israel, in the vicinity of israel since 2003? Five? Six? I've forgotten there's been so many.

This chemical attack was tied to Hillary and the Benghazi attack in Libya by Seymour Hersch. Lost in the jumble of conflicting Benghazi reports was a story about chemical weapons brought in covertly and being stored at the embassy for the Syrian rebels. This fits in with the false flag narrative.

chubbar's picture

How hard would it have been to get spec ops to bury gas canisters with a charge near an anticipated bombing target then light it off when they started the bombing? Assad isn't going to gas his own people days after the US tells him they decided they won't try to remove him. Doesn't Trump have any common sense?

I guarantee that McShitStain has something to do with this, that fucking slimey warmonger.

TheMaster's picture

Non-sense. The public will know the truth when I tell it to them.

And only a retard would think Assad would use chemical weapons a week before peace negotiations.

This shows just how pathetic and desperate the neo-con globalist bankster cabal - represented by decrepit old fools like McCain et al - are getting.

You still have respect for Trump? He's going to have to pull a Hail Mary miracle for me to believe he's anything other than another deep state patsy.

Yep, just another puppet of the empire. It will all be borne out soon enough.

Then ZH can at least go back to real discussions, instead of Trump bootlickers clogging up every thread.

Unfortunately I believe Ron Paul would run into the obstacles as Trump.  Would he handle it better, maybe, maybe not.  The Deep State / Shadow Government is so deeply embedded it smothers any single individual.  My hope for Trump is he would expose it from the Bully Pulpit and start the dismantling.   But as long as the Entitlement Mentality is seen as a virtue then it may never happen as that is where the Deep State gains its powers.

Yeah, well some of us who tried to get Ron Paul elected in 2008, and again in 2012, are stuck in THIS damn timeline.

The Republicans said "FUCK OFF" to Ron and his supporters both times, in spite of the rightness of Ron.

Now, it's on Trump, who in spite of haviing won, still has to fight the damn Republican Party.

This Syria thing is a total complete Kabuki presentation, brought to you by the contriollers.

Thank you Ron Paul - any bets on him being mentioned on nightly news?

Ron Paul's been no more right about 911 than Trump; and he quit at the end in 2012, remember?

More and more it looks like Trump has been captured by the "deep shit statist". If the POTUS tries to sell a Syrian war like he did Ryancare, then all "Deplorable nation" needs to flood the phone lines to the WH and their respective whores in CONgress with a simple message...HELL NO WE WONT GO!

Patriots not welcome with Trump, or is Bannon unpatriotic all of a sudden?

Maybe you exceptionalists have been played, big time? We'll see.

Ron Paul had the right platform, has the right ideas - no wonder he had no chance of winning anything other than the "strange" slot.

Fuck it - the more I look into our affairs, the more I'm reminded of the last book of the bible, and some other bible writers.

Raised as an agnostic, but with curiousity, I can't help myself: There are writings, telling us that Damascus will be destroyed...

Some Islam scholars "know" when the Antichrist (yes, that's right) arrives - the Sea of Tiberius (Galilea) will be dry. That's when the last war starts, according to shia eschatology.

Yes, i still believe the earth is a sphere.

That says a lot right there!  It's a belief, not knowledge.  The Michelson-Morley experiment proved there's no motion.  It's up to us to cut through the propaganda.  We seem to be doing a good job on the political side, but learning the truth about NASA seems to be reserved to those who are, for whatever reason, granted time to study it.  (In my case, concussions.)

Grumbleduke's picture

i wish there would be a firing squad for people without any sense of humour. 

 

Clashfan's picture

Learned people believed the earth a sphere long before NASA. One need not believe all of NASA's lies to apply logic and know (not believe) that we live on a globe. First, all of the other planets are spheres. Are we unique? Second, explain the wet moon with the sliver on the bottom. Third, look at flight times between Sydney and Johannesburg. They'd be MUCH longer if the earth were flat like morons think it is. Fourth, what about sail times along longitudes in the southern hemisphere? Same principle, unavoidable and irrefutable. Fifth, what is the coriolis effect?

Consider yourself schooled. I wish you blessings, but I also wish you'd take your FE crap elsewhere. Please.

Isaiah 40:22 There is One who dwells above the circle* of the earth,+
And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers.
He is stretching out the heavens like a fine gauze,
And he spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.+

Written 2800 years ago.
Inspired of God

TwelveOhOne's picture

Yes, and Isaiah knew the difference between the word for "circle" and the word for "ball", as "ball" was used in another place in Isaiah.

This is important, as some take 40:22 as backing evidence of a heliocentric model, where it's clearly talking about a two-dimensional circle.

TwelveOhOne's picture

I was schooled, thanks, the same way we all were.  Blessings back.  I only discuss it when it comes up, I do not lead with it.  You're welcome.

To answer your questions (again, only because you asked): "Are we unique?" -- yes.  The shape of what you're standing on is orthogonal to what you see in the sky (it took me a little bit to grok that).

Hadn't heard of "wet moon" before ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wet_moon ), will need to think/research on this.

The flight times are interesting, especially as they seem to take different paths than they would on a globe.  I forget the details but a flight with a lady who went into labor landed somewhere it shouldn't have been near (Alaska, I think?).

The southern hemisphere has many instances of ships being off course by a considerable margin.  Much more so than in the northern regions.

The Coriolis effect I also haven't studied much.  I know that there has been considerable difficulty in showing instances of sinks draining in different directions though.
