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?

The answer is that Assad would not carry out such a counter-productive attack.  The neoconservatives (~ 99% Jewish) know that quite well.  But, their goal is to create the even greater racist paradise of Greater Apartheid Israel using American blood and treasure.  Apartheid Israel is quite happy to accept American money (receiving approximately $165 BILLION by 2029 since the end of WW 2) and blood to create Greater Apartheid Israel.  Apartheid Israel has an unregistered foreign agent, Jared Kushner, sitting at Trump's dinner table every night to ensure that he complies with Israeli demands.

I'd really love for whomever downvoted this comment to have the balls to anonymously explain what they think is inaccurate. 

Fucking chickenhawks abound around here these days.

The truth is that the majority videos of attacks or atrocities are either staged or re-enacted because there are rarely any decent cameramen hanging around just on the off chance that something might happen.  I am sure that everyone has seen the films of the Japanese aircraft attacking Pearl Harbor carried out December 7th 1941.  Except that it was a re-enactment filmed by legendary director John Ford.  Yes, those are all American airplanes painted in Japanese livery and the ships being attacked are miniatures on a set.  He interspersed real film showing the destruction afterwards into the re-enactment to make it look authentic.  But, the 'kinetic' action is all a re-enactment.  That is not to say that the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was a fake.  It was real.  But, the film is a re-enactment.  Since they had that level of technology to stage re-enactments in 1941 just think about what they have now with CGI!!!

Thank God we have your assurance that Dec 7 was not fake.  It has all been kind of fuzzy in my mind until your brilliant analysis surfaced.

All the Suni affiliated groups are ours and all the Shia affiliated groups are Russia's. Any number of the Suni groups could have did it, even ISIS which is mostly hostile to us, except when we're giving weapons to groups that are suppose to oppose them, but secretly are them. I can remember what an instructor once told me while doing some drills that seemed particularly pointless, since there simply wasn't much of an escape once you have found yourself in a given position, and he said sometimes the best escape is to never get in that position to begin with. George Bush, Obama, and Hillary were dumbasses to ever get us in this position.

Am 97% sure that it was USA that killed those childrens. This murder was brough to you by USA, and USA should pay for it.

How long can it last? USA killing milions of ppl all over the world just to let fat americans to buy 1 more iphone or so get more free shit in wallmart from china thanks to Value of dollar - which is build of blood of innocents.

Let's hope someone will save the world soon from those evil bastard - USA. USA is the true evil on the world, let's hope asteroid hits it and everyone in north america dies.

"Trump Top Adviser Steve Bannon Attends NSC Meeting One Day After Being ‘Removed’


One day after what was demonstrably one of the most-covered stories by the media focused on the “removal” of Steve Bannon, President Trump’s top adviser, from the National Security Council (NSC), he attended a council meeting, the Washington Examiner reported on Thursday.

“White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has attended the first meeting of the National Security Council after he was removed from the principals committee Wednesday,” the Examiner story said."


this is for all you morons, y'all can suck it; I know you're hiding out in this thread

Israel's former chief rabbi has compared the atrocities in neighboring Syria to the killing of Jews in World War II.
The comments by Rabbi Israel Meir Lau, who survived the Holocaust as a child, adds one of the country's leading voices to a growing chorus of condemnations of the violence in Syria. This week, dozens of civilians were killed in a chemical attack in northern Syria.
Memories of the Holocaust are still fresh in Israel, and Israelis tend to refrain from comparing other conflicts to the Nazi genocide.
But in a radio interview Thursday, Lau broke that taboo and said Syrians are experiencing their own Holocaust.
"It did not start today. It has been six years since a Holocaust landed on them," he said. - reference to @ 6:45EDT PM mark.




Promptly, thereafter, President Father-in-Law of Jew Kushan is ready for "Boots on Ground, No Fly Zone, and USS Normandy."

Disappointed by Preeident Trump, he can't be trusted anymore. He has obviously betrayed the voters and the plan that got him elected. He has already sided with the Israelis, Saudis and Qataris that are financing war. Like unhumanitarian apartheid these are wealthy smaill minorities in the Middle East that finance and instigate wars masked on religion outside their boundaries so they can continue to survive and rip-off more wealth. The former Israeli Rabbi is right to mention the Syrian Holocaust.

They must to very desperate to try the same "chemical attack" false flag that failed so spectacularly in 2013. If these are the kind of "idiot savants" (emphasis on idiot) we are confronting, no wonder the Russians and Syrians are going to crush them completely.

I knew it was all over for the so-called "rebels" when the Russians bombed one of their oil convoys into Turkey into oblivion-eliminating a major source of financing. (Pictures first shown here on ZH)

We'll have to rely primarily on Russian media for valid information since our entire MSM is a big propaganda machine.

Trust, once lost, cannot be restored.

If US is militarily defeated in Syria
THEN... the US Dollar Crashes, US Empire has to be put back together.

- Israel, Neocons, GOP, RINOs, Media, Dems, Federal Reserve, TBTF... they all need to think about this
- If US is defeated but refuses to quit the fight THEN it is a huge drain of fighters, weapons, treasury, debt, US Energy

Oh no, the 'false flaggers' are having a global orgasm because their conspiratorial leader Ron the Paul pronounced their mantra on the 'Liberty Report'.  Shades of Joe Pyne.

There will be war because it was sanctioned by the Father. Nothing is allowed to occur without him. All things serve his purpose. The Father does not have to allow a nuclear exchange. He can stop anything outside his will. And has before.

Proof of the lie was in the rapidity of the US missile attack. They knew the lie was collapsing so they struck before it could, now it really, really makes the US look bad in front of the entire world. For all the world to see, the US is supporting the terrorists troops, Uncle Tom Obama's Syrian rape brigades are now owned by Trump. It will really blow back on the US, a enourmous amount of damage has been done as a result, no excuses, they just fired missiles into Syria to back their terrorists.

Dear oh, dear. Are those globalists desperate or what? They're not even trying to cover up their slimey trickery.
