I måndags, 26 juni, slogs en artikel upp stort, utom i västmedierna, om att Trump beordrat attacken mot Syrien i början av april trots att säkerhetstjänsterna sa att det inte fanns några bevis för att Assad använt kemiska vapen och trots motstånd från militären.
Seymour Hersh – Trump‘s Red Line

Dagen efter går Trump-administrationen ut med påståenden om att de har uppgifter om att Syrien planerar för ”en ny kemvapenattack” och hotar med attacker om en sådan inträffar! Det blir allt mer absurt.

I artikeln av Seymour Hersh, som har fått information från en person inom militären, framkommer att USA på förhand fick veta att Syrien tänkte utföra en flygattack den aktuella dagen, den 4 april. Ryssland och USA hade en kommunikationslinje för att undvika oavsiktliga sammandrabbningar eller incidenter. Det fanns uppgifter om att flera ledande personer från ledningen av ISIS eller om det var Al Nusra eller om de kallar sig något annat, skulle finnas på plats i ett hus, detta var målet för attacken. För attacken användes en särskilt avancerad laserstyrd bomb som ryssarna tillhandahöll.
Det spekuleras om det fanns kemvapen eller annat i byggnaden som skulle ha frigjorts vid attacken och fått det att se ut som en kemvapenattack. Men jag tror snarare att filmerna som spreds bara ett par timmar efter attacken var inspelade på förhand. Att informationen som USA hade fått om en väntad attack hade gått vidare till grupperingar inom västs säkerhetstjänster som hade kontaktat de väpnade gängen så att de var beredda och kunde spela upp kemvapenscenariot och sprida videorna så snabbt. Och västmedierna var ju också helt med på noterna.
USA’s militär visste om vad för slags attack som skulle ske. Och Trump fick information om att militären inte hade några bevis för att en kemvapenattack hade ägt rum. Men Trump hade bestämt sig, något skulle göras. Det blev en närmast symbolisk attack som inte orsakade någon större skada, även om några personer dödades. Här får man snarast bilden av att det är militären som håller igen och att det är Trump som är otillräknelig.

Ett inspelat samtal som Hersh också fått ta del av, mellan två amerikanska militärer i samband med USA’s attack den 7 april –
Airstrikes in Syria: “We Got a Fuckin‘ Problem”

AS: The Russians are furious. Claiming we have the real Intel and know the truth about the weapons depot strike.
AS: They are correct.
AS: I guess it really didn’t matter whether we elected Clinton or Trump. Fuck.
AS: No one is talking about the entire reason we’re in Iraq and Syria in the first place. That mission is fucked now.
SA: Are any of your colleagues pissed or is everyone going along with it and saying this is OK
AS: It’s a mad house. . . .Hell we even told the Russians an hour before impact…

almasdarnews.com – Russia alarmed by US remarks about Syrian gov’t plans to use chemical weapons

The US State Department’s statement that Washington won’t trust assurances from Damascus that there are no preparations for a chemical attack arouses serious concerns in Moscow, Russian Foreign Ministry’s Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on her Facebook page on Wednesday.
“We know from the past that the (George) Bush regime has already used the falsification of facts on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq against its own people to carry out a military aggression against that country. We are seriously concerned over this,” Zakharova stressed.

Kan det verkligen finnas allvarliga planer på en full attack mot Syrien från USA’s sida? Det tycks finnas fraktioner bland den dolda makten bakom imperiet som är inne på det. De kan aldrig ge sig! Storbritannien har i vanlig ordning ställt sig bakom.

moonofalabama.org – White House Says It Will Fake ”Chemical Weapon Attack” In Syria

The White House claims that the Syrian government is preparing “chemical weapon attacks”. This is clearly not the case. Syria is winning the war against the country. Any such attack would clearly be to its disadvantage. The White House announcement must thereby be understood as preparation for another U.S. attack on Syria in “retaliation” for an upcoming staged “chemical weapon attack” which will be blamed on the Syrian government.

Enligt den flamländska prästen Daniel Maes, som har bott i Syrien sedan 2010, bygger västmedias bevakning av kriget i Syrien på lögner. President Bashar al-Assad är inte problemet, utan våra egna politiker, som stöder Islamska staten och Al Nusra, för att störta den syriska regeringen.
”De verkliga terroristledarna finns i väst och Saudiarabien”, säger han.

Two months have now passed, and there remains no proof that the Syrian government carried out this attack. In fact, none of the evidence supports that version of events.
