Washington is Lying.
|Head of UN Mission Carla del Ponte|
The Media are Lying.
Both Trump and Obama have blood on their hands. The Chemical
Weapons Attack is being used as a “False Flag”, a pretext and a
justification to wage an illegal war of aggression.
The United Nations in a 2013 report confirms that Syrian opposition “rebels” (supported by Washington) “may have used chemical weapons against [Syrian] government forces.”
The UN report refutes Washington’s allegations that the
government of Bashar al Assad was using chemical weapons against his own
What the UN mission findings confirm is that the US sponsored
opposition “rebels” largely composed of Al Qaeda affiliated groups,
financed and supported by the Western military alliance were responsible
for these 2013 chemical weapons attacks.
Moreover, as confirmed in an earlier report, the Al Qaeda rebels were being trained in the use of chemical weapons by specialists on contract to the Pentagon.
Washington (which supports the opposition rebels in the use
of chemical weapons) rather than Damascus is responsible for extensive
crimes against humanity
According to the United Nations 2013 mission led by Carla del Ponte:
“evidence from casualties and medical staff indicated that rebel forces in the civil war had used the deadly nerve agent sarin.
‘Our investigators have been in neighbouring countries interviewing
victims, doctors and field hospitals, and there are strong, concrete
suspicions, but not yet incontrovertible proof, of the use of sarin
gas,’ said Del Ponte in an interview with Swiss-Italian television.
‘This was use on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities.’
Last night, the UN commission looking into allegations of war crimes
in Syria tried to row back on the comments by its human rights
investigator, pointing out that conclusive evidence had not been
However, the White House said it was likely that President Bashar
al-Assad’s regime, not the rebels, were behind any chemical weapons use.
Sarin has been classed as a weapon of mass destruction due to its potency and is banned under international law.
US President Barack Obama has said that the use or deployment of
chemical weapons in Syria would cross a ‘red line’ that could lead to
foreign military intervention. …
The comments by Ms Del Ponte, a member of the U.N. panel
probing alleged war crimes in Syria, contradict claims by Britain and
the U.S. that intelligence reports showed Syrian soldiers had used
She said that the United Nations independent commission of inquiry on
Syria has not yet seen evidence of government forces having used
chemical weapons, which are banned under international law. (See Daily Mail Online, May 6, 2013))
