Syrian President Bashar Assad is simply not mad enough to have carried out the recent chemical attack on a rebel-held town in Syria, according to outspoken former MP George Galloway.

Writing for the ‘Westmonster’ website, the former Labour and Respect MP said the idea that Assad was behind the recent suspected chemical attack at Sheikoun Khan was off the mark.

Major Western powers laid the attack at Assad’s door and leading figures have said Russia is tacitly responsible as well.

Syria maintains that the gas incident occurred after a conventional bomb hit a rebel chemical weapons depot.

“Syrian President Assad is no doubt bad enough to do anything at all to save his regime including the use of any and all weapons,” Galloway writes.

“But he’s not mad enough to launch militarily insignificant chemical weapons attacks on an already beaten enemy and, hey presto, bring America directly into the war against him.

“Anyone who says otherwise is either a fool or is trying to fool you,” Galloway warned.

Galloway urged readers to ask who would gain from such an attack.

“One only has to ask two questions. Why? And who benefits? That there is no conceivable advantage to the Syrian regime is obvious. That there is every conceivable advantage for the ISIS/Al-Qaeda-led rebels is equally obvious,” he said.
