"There Wasn't A Single Corpse": Russia Claims 'White Helmets' Staged Syria Chemical Attack

Russia claims that the reported chemical attack in Syria last Sunday was staged by the "white helmets," a US-funded NGO lauded by mainstream media for their humanitarian work, while long-suspected of performing less-than humanitarian deeds behind the curtain

Speaking with EuroNews, Russia's ambassador to the EU, Vladimir Chizov, said "Russian military specialists have visited this region, walked on those streets, entered those houses, talked to local doctors and visited the only functioning hospital in Douma, including its basement where reportedly the mountains of corpses pile up. There was not a single corpse and even not a single person who came in for treatment after the attack."

"But we've seen them on the video!" responds EuroNews correspondent Andrei Beketov.

"There was no chemical attack in Douma, pure and simple," responds Chizov. "We've seen another staged event. There are personnel, specifically trained - and you can guess by whom - amongst the so-called White Helmets, who were already caught in the act with staged videos."

Russia said it sent experts in radiological, chemical and biological warfare - along with medics, in order to inspect the Eastern Ghouta city of Douma where the attack is said to have taken place. 

Russia's Defense Ministry said in a statement that the experts "found no traces of the use of chemical agents," following a search of the sites, adding "All these facts show... that no chemical weapons were used in the town of Douma, as it was claimed by the White Helmets." 

All the accusations brought by the White Helmets, as well as their photos… allegedly showing the victims of the chemical attack, are nothing more than a yet another piece of fake news and an attempt to disrupt the ceasefire,” said the Russian Reconciliation Center. 

In a statement to the UN Security Council on April 9, Russia's UN Ambassador, Vassily Nebenzia outlined Russia's position on the timeline of the attack in Douma, as well as the Western response after the White Helmets reported that chemical agents were used:

On April 6, the new head of Jaysh al-Islam, following instructions of sponsors, derailed the evacuation of a party of fighters from Douma and resumed the rocket and mortar fire against residential areas in Damascus. The firing targeted [indistinct name of four areas]. According to official information, eight people died. 37 civilians were wounded. Unfortunately, we failed to see statements from Western capitals condemning the shelling of a historical district of Damascus. The following day, April 7, fighters accused the Syrian authorities of dropping barrel bombs with toxic substances. At the same time, diversions were being mixed up. It was either called sarin, chlorine, or a mix of toxic gases. Based on a well-known scheme, these rumors were immediately taken out by those who are financed by western capitalists; I am referring to NGOs and the White Helmets who are mendaciously acting under the cloak of health professionals. And these reports were also taken up and transferred to media outlets. 

It behooves us once again to state that many of these dubious structures have a clear list of the email addresses of representatives of Security Council members, which shows that some of our colleagues, with a reckless approach towards their status, are leaking sensitive information to their protégés. Incidentally, all should recall the way that accidentally, the White Helmets put on the internet a video which showed preparations for staging a so-called victim of an alleged attack perpetrated by the Syrian army. 

Indeed, over the last several years, reports out of Syria have been criticized as being primarily of anti-Assad origin and unverified. 

In a speech at the UN, pro-Assad Canadian journalist and RT contributor Eva Bartlett gave her account of what's going on with reports out of Syria - calling western sources "compromised" and "not credible." 

Meanwhile, UK Prime Minister Theresa May told President Trump on Tuesday that Britain would require more evidence in last weekend's suspected chemical attack before committing to a military strike against Syria, reports The Times.

The prime minister rejected a swift retaliation as inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) prepared to visit the Damascus suburb where at least 40 people were reported to have been killed by chlorine gas on Saturday. -The Times

May chaired a meeting of the national security council in London this week, where she spoke with Presidents Trump and Macron for the first time since the Douma chemical attack. It is reported that Trump, who's had a remarkable change of heart on U.S. involvement in Syria since the election, did not ask the UK to join military strikes

A No 10 read-out of her call with the US president stated that they agreed the international community “needed to respond” but stopped short of blaming the Syrian regime. “They agreed that reports of a chemical weapons attack in Syria were utterly reprehensible and if confirmed, represented further evidence of the Assad regime’s appalling cruelty against its own people and total disregard for its legal obligations not to use these weapons,” it said. -The Times

President Trump also appears to have backed off an imminent strike after promising Syria would "pay a big price," and that the U.S. response would be decided by Wednesday. Trump reportedly canceled travel plans after reports emerged that Russian and Iranian involvement in Syria would complicate matters in the region. 

Meanwhile, Secretary of Defense James Mattis has said that the U.S. is still assessing intelligence on the alleged chemical attack, saying in a statement "we're still working on this." In the same breath, Mattis said the United States is "ready" to provide military options for Syria.

Who do you believe?  Easy.  The side with the the non-kosher media.

So, their false-flags are getting more and more unbelievable.  The great fear is that these (((soulless creatures))) will have to stoop to some kind of major mass killing atrocity - even a dirty bomb - to achieve their devilish aims of World War.

Oh, the UN did it!!   LOL  What about the Syrian forces that surrounded the area and wouldn't let the UN enter?

 

Just more bullshit from Russia.

First responders said they found families suffocated in their homes and shelters, with foam on their mouths. The opposition-linked Syrian Civil Defense were able to document 42 fatalities but were impeded from searching further by strong odors that gave their rescuers difficulties breathing, said Siraj Mahmoud, a spokesman for the group, which is known as the White Helmets.

A joint statement by the Civil Defense and the Syrian American Medical Society, a relief organization, said that more than 500 people, mostly women and children, were brought to medical centers with difficulty breathing, foaming at the mouth, and burning sensations in the eyes. It said patients gave off a chlorine-like smell. Some had bluish skin, a sign of oxygen deprivation.

Body parts and splatters are far more Christian than gas.  Hitler used gas (another connection/emotional association) making it forever evil, hence that's what bad people use.

Follow the bodies, follow the funerals, follow the graves.  Or just ask Nikki Haley?

-Even if Trump doesn't follow through I have seen enough unsteady, concerning statements, over reaction from him and others to be concerned.  hopefully a lesson learned.  

-Putin stays quiet, lets others sell their BS, then when things get crazy he pipes up and behaves like the adult in the room.  Also credit to May for requiring proof, letting stuff develop, before committing to mil action.

You're missing the whole idea here: WTI can't bound well over the 2018 high unless we have some batshit crazy news! The Russians, the Saudis, the Mericans - they're all in on it.

There are enormous sums to be made by squeezing the world economy thru oil prices...and from a technical standpoint, now is the perfect moment to push it well over 70.

If WTI doesn't get a good push soon, it's likely to start falling back toward 60, maybe to the 50's.

This whole shitshow shooting match has be set off soon if the oil guys are gonna see 70+ and make the big bucks!

There are no ancient Jewish cities in Israel,...
but there are lots of ancient Greek cities.

What is weird is this; that 2000 years ago, it seems that there were no people even resembling Jews, in Israel.

It turns out that there is not a single ancient Jewish city in what is now called Israel. There is not a single ancient city where Hebrew characters are used on the statues and buildings. There is not a single ancient city where the buildings are in the ancient Jewish architectural style. In fact, there is not even a category of "ancient Jewish architectural style".

Of course, the Hebrew characters that are desired, are those of the Dead Sea scrolls (supposedly from 2000 years ago), which are essentially the modern Hebrew characters without points.

If you check out all the ancient cities in Israel from 2000 years ago, they are all Greek, and their ruins are still there for you to visit. Their inscriptions are in the Greek script and the buildings are in the ancient Greek architectural styles.

Here is a list of some of the known ancient Greek cities in (and near) Israel; Ecdippa, Seleucia, Ptolemais, Taricheia Arbela, Asochis, Sepphoris, Hippos, Dion, Sycaminum, Bucolon Polis, Itabyrium, Gadara, Abila, Dora, Comus, Gephrus, Crocodilion Polis, Caesarea, Straton's Tower, Narbata, Scythopolis, Pella, Samaria, Amathus, Ragaba, Gerasa, Apollonia, Sicima, Pegae, Joppa, Arimathea, Jamnia, Port of Jamnia, Lydda, Modiin, Aphaerema, Philadelphia, Birtha, Gazara, Beth Horon, Dok, Jericho, Samaga, Esbus, Medaba, Ladder of Tyre, Azotus, Port of Azotus, Accaron, Jerusalem, Ascalon, Anthedon, Gaza, Marissa, Beth Zur, Hebron, Adora, Engeddi.

The ancient Jewish cities in Israel are,....... well there aren't any. Not even one.

Here's an interesting example of a first century BC Greek inscription (i.e., in Greek letters) from Jerusalem's Temple Mount forbidding the entry of strangers to the Temple precinct.

http://www.preearth.net/images/no-foreigner-shall-enter.jpg

The pictured stone was found in 1935. It was actually the second such warning-stone to be found, the first being discovered by Charles Simon Clermont-Ganneau in 1871. It was deemed so dangerous to the "Jews inhabited Israel 2000 years ago" theory, that it completely disappeared for 13 years before resurfacing in Istanbul, where, it was correctly calculated, it would not attract much attention.

From: https://www.timesofisrael.com/ancient-temple-mount-warning-stone-is-clo…

The first Jerusalem Temple Mount warning-stone, now found in the Archaeology Museum, Istanbul, is pictured below:

http://preearth.net/images/jerusalem-temple-warning-at-istanbul.jpg

It says (in Greek): "No stranger is to enter within the balustrade round the temple and enclosure. Whoever is caught will be responsible to himself for his death, which will ensue."

Slack Jack's CHALLENGE:

Name ONE ancient city (that existed in what is now called Israel) where the building inscriptions are all in Hebrew, and the buildings are constructed in the ancient Hebrew architectural style (whatever that may be).

Then give a summary of "the ancient Hebrew architectural style" (you will have to make this up as it does not yet exist).

Then give links to photos of the ancient building inscriptions which show that they are written in Hebrew.

Then show that the buildings are constructed in the ancient Hebrew architectural style (that you have just invented).

It's been months now and still no one is up to the challenge.

Pal, you're an idiot, but since I won't play your little game you've constructed go ahead and declare victory.

It ain't so much what you don't know, it's what you know for sure that just ain't true.

To list (for example) Jericho as an ancient Greek (Macedonian, but I won't quibble) city is a howler. You are so biased that you obviously reject an abundance - a mountain - of contrary evidence. Carry on Mr. Myopi, wax on - wax off.

Newsflash: May knows that she's a hypocrite, and she doesn't give a damn. Shes a soulless, neocon harpy.

2nd Newsflash: in a more just world with an actually functioning icc, May, Trump, Boorish Johnson, and Macron just made themselves into perjuring war-criminals.

This whole situation is so full of shit. The populations of the west should be absolutely pissed-off that they get taxed to death for this. Its a joke, and May, Macron, Trump and Boorish are a joke.

Churchill in 1919, put down the Arab Rebellion in Iraq, by bombing, including with chemical weapons:

" Churchill was particularly keen on chemical weapons, suggesting they be used "against recalcitrant Arabs as an experiment". He dismissed objections as "unreasonable". "I am strongly in favour of using poisoned gas against uncivilised tribes _ [to] spread a lively terror _" In today's terms, "the Arab" needed to be shocked and awed. A good gassing might well do the job. "

There's nothing new in horror under the sun and Western hypocrisy is limitless.

I don't know about you all but I am getting really sick and tired of all this game playing BULLSHIT going on when it comes to Russia.  If I were the Russian's (and the Chinese to some extent) I would be preparing to make a first strike on western military and command and control targets because if shit keeps going the way it is eventually Russia is going to be attacked.  If they're smart they will also target the western banking centers because that's where all this crap is originating.

Just as an aside, if anyone remembers the old "John Titor" time traveler thing that was going abound the internet back around 2000 he said that WWIII would be short and mainly involve the Russian's taking out the headquarters of the western banking cabal and the deep state that runs the country.  He said that in the end that most American's were thankful for the Russian's removing the parasites from the country and enabling us to restore the constitution.

Re.  There was no chemical attack. 

There was a staged provocation. 

Adults and Syrian children in headchopper held Ghouta practice staging false flag chemical attack.

Children are playing. The alarm goes off. Sime kids hit the deck and start writhing in pretend agony. Others lie motionless. They're pretending they're dead. Adults in white lab coats and gas masks move in and start attending to the "survivors" by discreetly spraying white foam into their mouths ... etc. Watch it here.

It is definitely bad to corner anything alive that wants to stay that way, especially if the cornered is essentially misunderstood and no upside to it's demise. President Trump of US(A) has been making this point for some time now. pol rino announced out today -- good start. niky hally could follow tomorrow and add to the momentum. Economic globalism and warmongering colonization are dead end objectives. Throw in that nuclear parasite removal will involve substantial comorbidity, the cool-headed conservative becomes the obvious path. I can't tell that we've gone so far away that we need to restore the Constitution, but without a doubt WE need to adhere to it.
