What the Media Isn’t Telling You About the Chemical Attack in Syria

Chemical Attack in Syria(TIM Op-ed) — In recent weeks the American public has been inundated with reports claiming the U.S., the U.K., and France have conclusive evidence that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad reportedly used chemical weapons against his own people. Most of the American, British, and French media have lined up behind the proclamations of their respective political leaders by […]Source: What the Media Isn’t Telling You About the Chemical Attack in Syria

Riyadh appears to be trying to bully regional rival and fellow US ally Qatar into going to war in Syria, with the Saudi foreign minister citing the US leader’s call for “wealthy” nations to stump up and send boots to the ground.
 
In his interpretation of US President Donald Trump’s appeal to the affluent states in the region, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir issued a thinly veiled threat to Doha, arguing the Qatari government will not last a week after the US cuts off its military support.

 

Qatar must “send its military forces (to Syria), before the US president cancels US protection of Qatar, which consists of the presence of a US military base on its territory,” Jubeir said on Wednesday, as cited by the ministry’s media center.

 

Should the US withdraw some 10,000 servicemen currently stationed at Al-Udeid air base near Doha, the government “would fall there in less than a week,” Jubeir argued.

Commander of US Troops in Syria Makes “Secret and Unprecedented” Visit to Israel

Joseph Votel(ZHE) — Increasingly it appears that the recent US coalition missile strikes on Syria have utterly backfired: instead of weakening Syria or degrading its military capabilities, the attack may have actually served to strengthen Syria’s defenses. Since the massive strike which involved the US, UK, and France launching over 100 cruise missiles, Russia is rumored to be moving forward on delivery […]Source: Commander of US Troops in Syria Makes “Secret and Unprecedented” Visit to Israel

First they lied about Iraq, now they’re lying about Syria to wage war

First they lied about Iraq, now they’re lying about Syria to wage war

Last week self appointed global sheriff the United States and deputy dawgs Britain and France showered more than 100 missiles upon Syria, telling the world they were making our planet safer by punishing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for gassing his own people with chemical weapons.

The decision to bomb Syria had not even been made when Trump jumped the gun and warned Assad and his Russian allies in a tweet of “nice and new and ‘smart’!” missiles heading their way.

According to US media reports, Defence Secretary James “Mad Dog” Mattis pleaded with Trump to wait until Assad’s alleged responsibility for the Douma “attack” could be verified and Congress given a chance to authorise the act of war, but they went ahead to validate Trump’s tweets.

Is everyone registering this? Trump may have risked a third world war so he would not risk losing his credibility for live-tweeting Fox and Friends.

Blackwater founder Erik Prince says he has been informally contacted by Arab officials looking to marshal a multi-national force in Syria which would be able to fill any “security vacuum” left by a United States withdrawal – similar to the one which allowed ISIS to flourish when President Obama pulled US troops out of Iraq.

Meet The MPs Who Back ‘Humanitarian’ Bombing In Syria, But Who Have Been Silent On Abuses Elsewhere

The former Labour Friends of Israel chair has been supportive of May’s decision to launch airstrikes in Syria, highlighting the need to remove the alleged threat of chemical weapons attacks on the civilian population.

 

 
In a tweet on Saturday, Woodcock told his followers that the UK was right to join forces with the US and France in Saturday’s airstrikes in Syria, saying: “It was right that the UK joined our allies in action to degrade Assad’s chemical weapon capability in Syria – we must act together to remove the threat of these dreadful weapons that indiscriminately slaughter civilians.”
