Nobody is more disgusted by the use of chemical agents in warfare than I am. Whether it’s a blistering agent such as mustard gas or a nerve agent like GB (Sarin), they should never be used – not ever.
But isn’t it strange that now Assad has things under control and the Russians have ringed the country with S-300 and S-400 SAM batteries that Assad would launch a chemical attack on a handful of people? 100 people were effected by the gas. Russia’s defense ministry said on Wednesday (link) that the poisonous gas contamination was the result of gas leaking from a rebel chemical weapons depot after it was hit by Syrian government air strikes. I’m not pro-Russian but applying Ockham’s Razor, their explanation makes a lot more sense.
Now the US is contemplating war in Syria to depose Assad. Why is that again? And why would Assad deploy GB against a civilian population to kill or severely injure a mere 100 non-combatant people?
I understand the pitiful photos of children who were gassed. So was it a deliberate strike or was it an accidental release as Russia tells us? I suspect that President Trump is being punked, and I don’t think that it’s the Russians who are doing it. If not them, who?
Who is promoting US war against Syria that will draw Russia in against the United States? Who has been fulminating propaganda against Russia in the United States and for what reason?
I smell a rat.
