Speaking of highly implausible things, according to a statement released by the White House on Monday night, the Syrian regime is “potentially” scheming to launch “another” chemical attack. The White House statement cites “evidence”, but let’s quote Sean Spicer verbatim:
“The United States has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime that would likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children,”

The White House cites as evidence of an incoming chemical attack a number of “preparations” Assad’s regime is currently taking, the same preparations claimed to having being made prior to the April 4th 2017 highly dubious chemical weapons attack blamed on the Syrian government. However, our readers must be aware of the fact there was no official investigation into the matter as the US officials took the so called rebels’ (ISIS terrorists) words as cold facts, but let that go.
The thing is, if ISIS and other terrorist factions fighting against Assad’s legitimate regime will perform another chemical attack on civilians, as they already did on countless occasions, the United States is now ready to blame Assad, the Russians and the Iranians. To quote from the White House statement again:
“As we have previously stated, the United States is in Syria to eliminate the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. If, however, Mr. Assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons, he and his military will pay a heavy price.”
Any further attacks done to the people of Syria will be blamed on Assad, but also on Russia & Iran who support him killing his own people.

It’s pretty clear what’s going on here. But looking at the vast majority of critical replies to Sean Spicer’s twitter announcement of this new lie gives me hope. The problem with Syria is that Assad’s regime is winning, ISIS and Al Qaeda are facing extinction with a little help from Iran and Russia and that makes a lot of neocons very unhappy. Now the US wants to continue defending ISIS over false flag chemical attacks? Assad has absolutely nothing to gain from a chemical attack and he’s not stupid.
Also, why is the word, “another” being used? If this is true, it would be the FIRST chemical attack. All the previous “attacks” were either proved fake or done by US coalition terrorist partners. Assad has the support of Syrian citizens and now the “ feral gummint” wants us to believe he wants to slaughter his own people. Why won’t any of the corporate news media ask the question, “Why would he do this”? Why would Assad use chemical weapons at this point when he’s clearly winning the war against ISIS?
It seems that the White House statement is aimed at laying the groundwork for a new series of US attacks on Assad’s military and government targets. And that may lead to a full blown war with Russia and Iran.
