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?

If there were any justice Gordon and Miller would be executed for treason. But then again being dual-citizens can that really be teason?

Yes, but you'll have to throw in Bush and Cheney and Rummy - and the Dimmocrats who vocally supported them all.

How many militaries have jets that could have been flying in that area that day?  This ain't rocket science.  Get Susan Rice to unmask some "stuff".

The White Helmets actors weren’t even wearing gloves. If the ‘sarin’ gas victims had sarin on them, the WH people would be dead too.

This is how real sarin attacks are dealt with, using full-body positive-pressure hazmat suits. The scenes are from the attack on the Tokyo subway several years back.

Evidence from Russian sources suggest it was either chlorine products. Alternatively it was more of the phosphine agents Lizzie Phelan reported on the liberation of Aleppo.

Zero chance Assad did it.


Zero chance they dont know that.


Zero chance they dont know we know its bs.


Zero chance they care.


Anyone with a brain knew Iraq was bs in 2002. But in we went.

The Syrian gas attack, whether actual or fake, was designbed to bury the Susan RIce criminality and that of the intel community.

This. ^

Deep State false flag. Wait until we find out the Zero administration was surveilling the entire field in the GOP primaries. There is no fucking way in hell anyone but the true Trump believers thought that Trump was going to win the nomination a year ago. These corrupt as shit weaponized intel agencies were spying on everyone.  Do not doubt me.

Surely, a possibility.

Looks like Mad Dog Mattis is either a moron or another NWO warmonger puppet.  Tillerson too.

This false flag is more absurd than the one at Sandy Hook.

It must of been done by the CIA. That is why Trump is so sure it is Assad.

With Brexit, the prospect of Le Pen, the chance that Hungary and Austria will leave the EU, Russia and China considering gold backed currency, North Korea on the verge of being able to protect itself from the 50 years of economic tyranny of the West, etc. the globalist bankers are desperate to start WWIII. Americans must intervene and restore a de jure government to replace the de facto private organization that took over America.

Does anyone know if the video footage and photos of the alleged victims are real or staged?

Also, is there a way to geographically pinpoint where the footage and photos were shot?

Just because someone shows you videos depicting suffering victims doesn't mean they're real victims and not paid actors. 

No one really wants to fall for this whole thing Sandy Hook, line, and sinker...

grekko's picture

Gimmee a break...the White Helmets were wearing dust masks and NO gloves.  It's all fake, because they weren't dead in an hour after touching sarin victims.

Right on Ron Paul

Assad, democratically elected "dictator" (what they want us to believe) of a sovereign country, is one of the few hero leaders of the world. It would be so easy for Trump to pay him, and his incredible wife Asma, a personal visit and see how "evil" this cosmic fellow is. Peace would reign. War could be so easily averted. If Trump follows the dictates of this administration and does something stupid. I will turn against the man I voted for. Somehow, though, I think Trump "gets it" and won't go the way of the Dark Side.

Trump has no time for Putin never mind Assad.   It's called doing a 180.

and we have a winner for the moron award. This is the middle East, and he is every bit the tyrant he's made out to be. Every leader in the ME is. They may be your evil bastard or they may be someone else's evil bastard, but they're evil bastards nonetheless. You're so fucking stupid that it's comical. Please comment more.

Fog of war.

I like Ron Paul, but I don't think he knows.  

Michael Savage is echoing Ron Paul, and I don't think Savage knows, either.

What is "logical" or "not logical" for someone to do in a six-way clusterfuck like Syria is really not a definitive "fact".

Any number of lunatics with a branch office in Syria could launch a chemical attack.

The U.S. DOD seems to be saying it was Assad's forces based on radar analysis.  Not nailed down conclusive proof, but the best story  for the moment.

Bull fucking shit. Where's this radar analysis? I want a link, not some asshat's opinion in an anonymous comments thread. 

thebigunit's picture

Sorry, Mr. Potty Mouth Tough Guy,

Bull fucking shit

You ain't getting any radar analysis.

NO ONE, including you, has any first hand data.  We are ALL relying on sources we believe to be credible.

I'm relying on Trump.  You're relying on some turd with nose rings and neck tatoos in his Momma's basement.

The CIA, the Central Imbeciles Association, probably staged the attack using any numbers of terror groups in the region they support.

I dont think our boy Ron understands that we need a pretext to change our position v Syria.
Go ahead moron hurt the Republican party

Well this chemical weapon attack explains a great deal. No wonder we could not find any WMD's in Iraq....Assad and the Russians had already stolen them to put to use now. Bush is vindicated!!!

Well it has to be Assad, otherwise how can we go ahead with our plan to Make Syria Great Again?

Maybe he doesn't get cable?

Benito_Camela's picture

But the Zionist supported White Helmets said it was Assad! They should know. They have responded to so many of these gas attacks that they don't even need gloves or proper protective gear to protect themselves from Sarin! That's called building up a tolerance, folks. They have an Oscar and some "doctor" in Turkey with a very active Twitter account to prove it!

logical-different's picture

This sounds all too familiar.

First we have Tillerson telling the world that the people of Syria can deal with Assad and it will be left to them as a country. 

Wednesday, the gas attack occurs.

Thursday, Tillerson says that something is in the works. Meaning- the USA is in another killing mood.

.....Again the mad dog Americans have figured out another way to completely destroy a nation.  TRUMP is no different than all the presidents before him.  He will just carry on with the policies of the Obama regime.  Now you know boys and girls that Trump has now been converted into one of them.  War and more war and perhaps the Americans have found their leader for World war 3. 

This could be historic.  They're going to bring on the New World Order even if they have to kill 90 percent of the citizens.

Next up is IRAN and then an ugly war.

Trump will carry on the policies of the Netanyahu regime in the racist paradise of Apartheid Israel.  Conquering Syria benefits only Apartheid Israel.  Nothing that happens in Syria has any relevance for the United States of America.

You are absolutly right, this is the oded yinon plan in action and the donald has always been a member of this cheerleading squad.

So is the CIA telling Trump "It's a slam dunk Mr. President"? Maybe Assad did gas them regardless of how irrational it is. But what if he did? Why do we need to charge off to exchange Clusterfuck A for Clusterfuck B wherein B gets our soldiers killed and spending money we ain't got. Then there is the fact well be killing innocent locals. It'ss not or fight.
