rt.com – Chemical weapons held by all sides in Syria should be destroyed – Lavrov
During a “constructive” meeting on the sidelines of UNGA, US Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov have agreed to continue pushing towards destruction of “all” chemical weapons in Syria under international supervision.
“There are some serious concerns that the Syrian opposition may possess components of chemical weapons,” Lavrov told the press after the meeting with his counterpart. “All chemical weapons must be destroyed in Syria including hazardous materials in possession of the opposition,” he was quoted by Interfax.
One of the main sticking points is a possible Security Council resolution that would include possibility of the use of force under Chapter 7 of the UN Charter. Russia as well as China have continually opposed the inclusion of any such reference in a draft UN resolution.

Patrik Paulov – ”Förfalskade bevis för kemisk attack”, Omfattande granskning av filmer från Ghouta
Den rapport som ISTEAMS sammanställt bör tas på allvar. Det avgörande är att den kraftigt ifrågasätter den ”sanning” som lagts fram av de syriska rebellerna och deras uppbackare i väst. De många frågetecken som väcks av rapporten måste undersökas vidare.
Det är viktigt att åter påpeka att ISTEAMS undersökning inte på något vis utesluter att kemiska vapen använts eller att många människor dödats i Ghouta. Men dess slutsats är att rebellernas filmatiserade skildring av vad som hänt inte visar verkligheten utan iscensatts i ett tydligt syfte. Nämligen att angripa den syriska regeringen och legitimera en västligt militär attack på Syrien.

voiceofrussia.com – VoR investigation: Controversy surrounding MintPress chemical weapons Ghouta report continues
It does not surprise Professor Chossudovsky that Ms Gavlak now wants her name to be retracted from the article. “Obviously, she want to be cleared of that because she is threatened by Saudi Arabia and she also risks to lose her job with Associated Press”, says Chossudovsky.
Chossudovsky also contends that this story is very significant because “everything suggests that what Ms Gavlak and Mr Ababneh reported in that article is correct”. While the expert admits that the Mint Press report is incomplete, he nonetheless sees it as a credible piece of information when it is corroborated by other report. For Chossudovsky, the report not only supports the assumption that Syrian rebels, rather than Assad’s forces, waged Ghouta attacks, but also suggests that August 21st attacks were a “series of very carefully staged events.”
As for Ms Gavlak’s future prospects, Professor assumes that her career as a mainstream journalist might well be over. “I suspect she will be fired, if she hasn’t already been fired,” Chossudovsky claims. “Associated Press will not want to take her back as a mainstream reporter. They will do their outmost to camouflage this report and other reports which are being published concerning this east Ghouta chemical weapons attack.”

Who does the Obama administration suggest should now sit on the opposition side to negotiate with the Syrian government in Geneva? Neither the exile National Syrian Council nor the exile Supreme Military Command have any control over or traction with the groups fighting against the Syrian government.

Tony Cartalucci – VIDEO: Rockets Used in Damascus CW Attack Fired from Makeshift Flatbeds, Not Military Vehicles
While the video above is claimed to be a ”smoking gun,” it instead, under critical examination, illustrates the means with which the false-flag operation was carried out in late August – for the sole purpose of justifying direct Western military intervention to save a faltering proxy war.
That the same rocket used in Damascus has now been seen launched from makeshift flatbeds and not olive green military rocket launchers, along with answering the basic question of ”to whose benefit?” and considering that militants are confirmed to have US training in handling of chemical weapons – all at the very least tear down the narrative that ”only the Syrian regime” could have carried out the attacks.
