Stocks Sink As State Department Says It Has "Proof" Syrian Government Behind Gas Attack

While teams from the OPCW are still sifting through the wreckage in eastern Ghouta, where a gas attack killed dozens of Syrian civilians in rebel-held territory, the State Department says it now has evidence that the Syrian government was behind the attack that triggered intense international outrage.

The news hammered stocks and the dollar and drove the yen higher as traders rightfully assessed that a military strike is now looking like a virtual certainty.

During her daily press briefing, Sarah Huckabee Sanders said President Trump will hold another national security meeting later today. The White House is still considering "all options" on Syria.

The poor innocent carefully vetted moderate rebels took blood samples taken from the poor innocent children killed by the evil Assad regime and smuggled them into Jordan where the US CIA contact declared the samples showed the presence of chlorine. Ipso facto - the evidence is solid. Assad did it. Case closed.

Coincidence that this statement comes on the heels of the Russian claims that it has proof that the UK staged the  "gas attack"?

Where was this fvckin' proof when Trump was busy tweeting a strike on Syria setting off fires of a possible WWWIII?

Are there "white" helmets working in the "white" house?

BTW, to all the western government: "you have zero credibility...zilch...and boy you have you EARNED it"!!!

This latest chemical attack in Syria is yet another FALSE FLAG.

Just like all the previous chemical attacks in Syria were FALSE FLAG events.

Just like the Skripal "chemical attack" in Britain was a FALSE FLAG event.

Trump is a Jew (so is Theresa May, by the way).

It seems the Jews want war,.... yet again.

Remember, the evil people, Theresa May, Stoltenberg, Trump and the rest, are damning Russia with obvious lies.

The Novichok nerve agents don't even exist.

HERE IS THE PROOF:

The Novichok nerve agents are supposedly much more toxic than the nerve gases VX or Sarin (and yet the Skripals are still alive!?).

Mirzayanov's book, published in 2008, contains the formulas he alleges can be used to create Novichoks. In 1995, he explained that "the chemical components or precursors" of Novichok are "ordinary organophosphates that can be made at commercial chemical companies that manufacture such products as fertilizers and pesticides."

https://www.amazon.com/State-Secrets-Insiders-Chronicle-Chemical/dp/143…

Basically, Mirzayanov claims that it is relatively easy to make the Novichok nerve agents.

So, some enterprising Arabs could buy a few chemists to make a few tons of it and then spray it all over the little Satan.

Do you really think that the Jews who run the United States would allow the publication of information that could lead to thousands of deaths in Israel?

Do you really think they would protect the publisher of such information by giving him residence in the United States?

Remember, Mirzayanov was given residence (and a University position) in the United States after he was kicked out of Russia.

There are also a number of "people who should know" that have stated that there is zero solid evidence for the existence of the Novichok nerve agents. For example: Robin Black in Development, Historical Use and Properties of Chemical Warfare Agents (2016):

"In recent years, there has been much speculation that a fourth generation of nerve agents, ‘Novichoks’ (newcomer), was developed in Russia, beginning in the 1970s as part of the ‘Foliant’ programme, with the aim of finding agents that would compromise defensive countermeasures. Information on these compounds has been sparse in the public domain, mostly originating from a dissident Russian military chemist, Vil Mirzayanov. No independent confirmation of the structures or the properties of such compounds has been published."

https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2018/03/the-novichok-story-is-i…

And, Alexander Shulgin, Russia's representative to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (2018):

"There has never been a ‘Novichok’ research project conducted in Russia,... But in the West, some countries carried out such research, which they called 'Novichok,' for some reason."

CONCLUSION: The Novichok nerve agents don't even exist.

It has been said that: The Skripals are still alive for 1 of 2 reasons:
1. The exposure was too low.
2. They were given an antidote shortly after being exposed.

A killer would probably find it difficult to administer a dose low enough not to kill.

One drop containing 10 milligrams of VX (or 1 milligram of Novichok) absorbed through the skin is fatal.

The antidote atropine (which is quite toxic) must be administered immediately unless the dose is exceedingly low. How did they know to administer it?

If the dose was exceedingly small then those who administered the Novichok did not mean to kill.

If those who administered the Novichok meant to kill, the Skripals would be dead.

OVERALL CONCLUSION: False flag.

That screeching witch Nikky Haley is about to get embarrassed worse than Colin Powell at the U.N.
Her "proof" is a series of youtube videos and "eye witness" accounts from the discredited white helmets.
It's a good thing the Russians and Syrians have taken over the area. The people in Douma were cheering and celebrating their entry and are singing like song birds about the bullshit chemical attack. That and British & French Spec Ops were captured and are confessing. The U.K. kabuki theater is about to come crashing down.

Only this time around people have at their disposal a means in which they can fight back these vicious lies by these unashamed psychopaths. 

Listen, for instance, to the citizens of Aleppo and their own opinions of the white helmets and their true motives:

Yea- can't wait to see what this "proof" is, and how quickly moronic americans drink their dose of gov't kool-aid this week... "OH! The GOVT said so? Well, it's all so confusing, but I sure trust my local pol- they really care about me. And they're also Americans, just like me! Haven't you heard of Joseph Stalin before? He was a very bad man! I can't believe you support Joseph Stalin- you're weird- stay away from me and my hormone-beef-fattened family!"

Only one problem with that.... chlorine gas is not lethal other then very large concentration due to the displacement of oxygen. In other words if you can run away and are outside it will not kill you. It is alot heavier than air and is why the germans used it against the french when they wanted them to come out of their bunkers alive.

  I think you overlooked one thing : those samples went to Britain first ,to be compared with the Skripal samples. They need to match somehow; they also ,made a short stop in France ,as Macron has "Proof" too .

 Only after this ,they reached the Kosher House. In time for the Passover.

  Don't you like it when all proofs align like PNAC chess pieces on the geopolitical board ?

Lol.  Then it is worse than I suspected.

 

Not only is there not a normed peer reviewed and validated blood and or urine "test" to prove a chlorine gas attack the chain of custody is uncertain.   The samples have no verifiable provenance.

 

We should just take "Army of Islam" at their word, eh?  A renamed al queda and nusra front is clearly trustworthy lol.

Can't wait for this "evidence"...$1M says it's very heavy with "classified info" that can't be disclosed and we'll just have to "trust" the people that have seen all of the evidence that Assad personally issued the order to gas 40 people...I hope the "evidence" also explains Assads reason for this..what he hoped to gain...especially since he was just inches away from winning the "Civil War" in Syria.

The desperation for war is just sickening...we are talking, ALLEGED, 40 dead...it is just sickening they way these people work...they have killed a million+ spreading "Freedom and Democracy" and fighting "Terrorists" that they created and openly back...but these 40 lives must immediately be avenged..just sickening!

Russia and Syria have also the captured intelligence officers from US ,UK,Israhell and KSA .

It seems that US is really ,really desperate ; this ends in two ways:

-either US thugs (accompanied by UK ,France ,Israhelli and KSA ) go down

-or US takes down the whole world ( because the Russians will not back down this time)

Don't forget the captured British and French Spec Ops handlers that helped train and stage this fake attack. Expect video confessions as a part of the evidence. I suspect Russia is waiting for that waffle house waitress to show her cards first to then discredit their lies even further.

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/04/suspected-chemical-attack-kills-dozens-syria-douma-180407202906316.html

CNN fake news puts in the standard disclaimer they "cannot independently confirm White Helmet accounts..." Really. Can't pick up the phone and call their "Nobel Prize winning" headquarters in the Netherlands.

https://edition.cnn.com/2018/04/09/middleeast/syria-douma-victims-intl/index.html

To put his MSM fake news farce into perspective, back in 1988 a managing editor of just about any daily newspaper or major broadcast station would behave been immediately shitcanned for using this statement in any news report, the reporters involved fired and blacklisted. If it could not be confirmed by at least two vetted sources it didn't run. Period. 

Put simply, if they "cannot independently confirm" their broadcasts then what in the fuck are they doing airing them in the first place. CNN/MSM are nothing but pure unadulterated bullshit, and today most of the population has been exposed to so much of it for so long they have forgotten what real journalism actually was or indeed have never been exposed to it.

The CNN/MSM fake news filth is not news, they are not journalists. Nothing but frauds, hacks, globalist cabal shills impersonating legitimate reporters and any remaining credible media outlets.

If Trump fires one missle &/or if one navy ship gets return fired upon, or one sailor dies...

 

Trump is DONE as President

 

Let that sink into your thick 16-D chess playing skulls people, because the only thing anybody is hanging onto anymore in terms of Trump producing anything, is the HOPE that, maybe, some of the Clinton posse may get prosecuted...

 

If Trump fucks this up, then even that remote possibility is burnt to a crisp... So try and explain to me then what a great 'strategist' he is...

I am sure that some old geezers knew that Vietnam was bullshit too before it started.

40 years from now the government will be trying to start another war and some small percentage of the young millennials will be calling it bullshit in their own small echo chamber.

The rest of the sheep will be believing every word of the bullshit.
