Completely unsubstantiated allegations to the effect that President Assad of Syria has already authorised the use of illegal weapons (poison gas) in the coming assault on Idlib, continue to proliferate in western media (the fake news industry,) and are repeated by talking heads on TV and radio. Idlib province in north west Syria borders Turkey and is the last stronghold of the ISIS / Al Nusra rebels who, armed, trained and funded by Washington and its NATO allies and The Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia, have been trying to ovrthrow the Assad regime for the past four years. In a last desperate attempt by the US Deep State to prevent the total defeat of it’s proxy war on Russia and Iran, the US appears to be trying once more to justify direct intervention in the Syrian war.
Unfortunately all the previous allegations of illegal weapons use by the Assad regime, made by Trump and his predecessor, the mass murderer and war criminal Barack Hussein Obama, have been proved to be false flag events or simply fake news.
President Trump has threatened Syrian and Russian forces currently preparing to take back the terrorist-controlled stronghold in northwestern Syria, potentially bringing the world to the brink of World War III, because Russian President Vladimir Putin has previously demonstrated he will not allow Assad to fall. But Trump’s tweets about the potential “humanitarian catastrophe” and what the US response might be have exposed a guiding principle of the US’s involvement in Syria (and indeed across the Middle East): Use of illegal weapons attack is only a humanitarian “catastrophe” if it’s carried out by opponents of US geopolitical hegemony.
In what Russian officials have been warning of since mid August, Washington officials are already blaming Assad for an attack that has not taken place yet. Russia’s foreign ministry has claimed several times its sources in Syria knew another US-approved false flag attack was being prepared to justify direct military action.
Today we learn from independent sources that on Saturday US F15 jets reportedly dropped white phosphorus (an illegal weapon,) on Hajin, a Syrian town in the Deir Ez-Zor province. When it comes in contact with oxygen, white phosphorus can cause massive fires. Because of this, it’s banned by the Geneva Convention for use in combat. Russian officials said they’re still waiting for information on casualties.
Here’s more from RT:
Two F-15 jets on Saturday bombed the town of Hajin with white phosphorus incendiary munitions, banned under the Geneva Convention, according to the Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria.
“Following the strikes, large fires were observed in the area,” Lieutenant-General Vladimir Savchenko said Sunday. There’s still no information on casualties caused by the bombing run, he added.
The US promptly denied responsibility for the attack and expects the world to believe its denials. Yet when Washington accuses Syria or Russia of war crimes, their denials are met with derision. Well we would be foolish to believe without question anything Russia or the Assad government said, which is who independent inspectors from the Organisation for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons hve visited sites of alleged chemical weapon attacks and found no evidence to link the assad regime to the use of poison gas.
A Pentagon spokesperson denied the allegations of dropping white phosphorus bombs. “At this time, we have not received any reports of any use of white phosphorous,” Commander Sean Robertson told the media on Sunday. “None of the military units in the area are even equipped with white phosphorous munitions of any kind.”
Despite these outraged denials by US military and Department of Defense officials, photos of the attack have emerged on social media. Note the bright white flames of the incendiary mareial, an indicator that the substance is phosphorous :
Islamic State still controls a pocket of territory in Deir Ezzor between the Euphrates River and the Iraqi border, and also has scattered bases across Syrian’s eastern desert desert. The use of any incendiary munitions in populated civilian areas was banned by Protocol III of the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons, which the US signed the protocol back in 2009.
