Don’t drink the Kool-Aid! West promoting chemical false flags as pretext for military action

The West has opened its bag of dirty tricks in an effort to smear their avowed enemies with the noxious charge of chemical attacks on civilians. Evidence seems to be optional when selling these sensational stories to the public.

Once again the world is on tenterhooks as the possibility of a major clash erupting between major powers in Syria looms large on the horizon. If the situation seems surreal, it’s because we’ve been at this dangerous crossroads before. One year ago almost to the day, the United States carried out an unprovoked missile strike against Syria’s Shayrat Airbase. The reason? Without any benefit of the doubt or presumption of innocence, Syrian President Bashar Assad was scapegoated for a chemical attack against civilians.

The chemical blame game continues today.

The most recent attack, which screams ‘false flag’ like no other, comes as no surprise to many observers. Russia was sounding the alarm last month that US instructors were actively training militants for a “chemical provocation” that would be used as a pretext for carrying out an attack on the Syrian government (Syrian doctors, meanwhile, said they had not received victims with signs of chemical poisoning from Douma, and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said no evidence has been found of a chemical weapons attack).

So why does the Western media resolutely refuse to entertain the possibility that – just maybe – the ‘moderate’ rebel groups in Syria may have been responsible for the latest (alleged) outrage against civilians?

After all, even the most partial observer would have to agree that the rebels have infinitely more motive than the Assad government to orchestrate an attack against innocents. The reason is beyond clear: they would have the unconditional support of the US no matter what happens.

Last year, for example, following a deadly provocation in Idlib Province, the US State Department within hours already knew who the guilty parties were: “Russia and Iran…bear great moral responsibility for these deaths.” It then accused Assad on the basis of nothing of operating with “unabashed, brutal barbarism.”

It would not require a rocket scientist among the militants to understand that the Western powers will automatically blame any future chemical attack on the usual suspects. Now if that isn’t an invitation for mayhem, I don’t know what is.
