Gordon Duff: “Russia has tried over and over to present evidence, to present medical evidence of the use of sarin gas, of the use of mustard gas, massive use of chlorine gas. In 2014, in January, the Syrian army captured a chemical warfare manufacturing facility,… captured in that facility a Turkish officer who was running the facility, captured Saudi and Qatari officers there, none of this is ever reported, none of the evidence that the Russians are trying to submit [and] have taken to the UN was ever accepted.”

Who was responsible for the use of chemical weapons in Syria?

…by Jonas E. Alexis

 

You just can’t make this stuff up. It seems that New World Order agents in well-funded organs such as the New York Times are getting dumber and dumber every day. The Times has recently published an article saying that Assad used chemical weapons on his own people again! The evidence? It was nowhere to be found. These people are certainly making science fiction look very bad.

They had assumed that Assad used chemical weapons, and that assumption progressively became a substitute for hard-core evidence. Once the perverse assumption has been unconvincingly established, the Times moved on with the proposition that Assad must be punished. Listen very carefully here:

“[Russia] vetoed a resolution before the United Nations Security Council that would have punished Syria for using chemical weapons.

“The vote marked the seventh time since 2011 that Mr. Putin protected Mr. Assad from international condemnation or sanctions and, as often is the case, China followed Russia’s example.”[1]

Well, Russia vetoed it because not a single US official or New World Order agent has presented verifiable evidence showing that Assad did use chemical weapons on his people, let alone civilians.

But because Russia does not accept the prevailing vision, the Times declares that France and Britain were right in exposing “Russia’s moral bankruptcy.”[2]

As we all know, it is not Russia that is morally bankrupt here but the New World Order agents, keeps deviating from the moral and political order. Keep in mind that NWO agents tried this “chemical weapons” thing back in 2011, and it failed miserably and pathetically.

Noted journalist Seymour M. Hersh himself pointed out that the Obama administration made up the “evidence” that Assad used chemical weapons. Hersh also briefly suggested that the evidence was cooked up by an Israeli agent.[3]

The Times of Israel and even the New York Times themselves agreed that the source for the “chemical weapons” accusation came from Israeli officials,[4] who wanted to overthrow the Assad government from the very beginning. This is from the New York Times itself (April 2013):

“The timing of the White House disclosure also suggested the pressures it is facing. It came the same day that the British government said that it had “limited but persuasive” evidence of the use of chemical weapons, and two days after an Israeli military intelligence official asserted that Syria had repeatedly used chemical weapons.”[5]

Did you catch that? The House was facing pressure because the Israeli regime had already postulated without an iota of evidence that Assad “had repeatedly used chemical weapons,” and Obama had to do something to keep the Israeli regime off his back. In other words, the whole argument that Assad actually used chemical weapons is invariably circular. There is more:

“Administration officials had begun the week casting doubt on the claims made by the Israeli official, Brig. Gen. Itai Brun, about chemical weapons.”[6]

But no one was able to tell Benjamin Netanyahu and his cabinet to back off because people are just scared to death to be called anti-Semites. But Chuck Hagel, to his credit, blew everything out of proportion when he questioned the entire Israeli project in Syria.

“Suspicions [about Assad using chemical weapons] are one thing; evidence is another,” he said. “But by then, a senior administration official said, the intelligence agencies had already become more confident of their assessment, after several weeks of examining the evidence.”[7]

In short, there was no serious evidence for the prevail vision. What ended up happening was that the Israelis posited a stupid assertion, and US officials just had to find the so-called evidence—anywhere. It doesn’t matter whether the assertion is ridiculous; what matter is that the Israelis said it and everyone had to be on board.

But the fact on the table again was that the Israelis preferred ISIS and other terrorist cells in the region over Assad! This is not some conspiracy theory. This is exactly what they say in public, and they make no apology for it:

The Israelis are known to invent lies and fabrications and send those lies to US officials and puppets. For example, they declared last year that Assad used chemical weapons during a ceasefire! There is more, Assad was using chemical weapons during a ceasefire on civilians![8] The British Telegraph picked that bold lie and declared that Assad was using chemical weapons on children,[9] when in fact it was the so-called rebels who were responsible for the covert activity.

One needn’t be an intellectual to realize that this is completely dumb. What would Assad have gained if he had used chemical weapons during a ceasefire? Is Assad that dumb? Wouldn’t he think that doing so would send him to his political death? As Putin put it then, it would be “utter nonsense” for Assad to use chemical weapons when in fact Assad was winning the Syrian war. Putin moved on to say then:

“I am convinced that it (the chemical attack) is nothing more than a provocation by those who want to drag other countries into the Syrian conflict, and who want to win the support of powerful members of the international arena, especially the United States.”[10]

Back in 2013, the New York Times released an article entitled, “Kerry Cites Clear Evidence of Chemical Weapon Use in Syria.”[11] What was the evidence? John’s Kerry’s own statements! If you doubt me, just read the article carefully and see if you can find any serious evidence for the claim. If you would have asked Kerry about the evidence, he would have said something like, “So and so has it.” If you pursue that question long enough, you will inevitably realize that the answer is from the Israeli regime.

You see, US politicians still do not have the moral and intellectual courage to tell the Israeli regime to stop their political maneuvering. But allowing a foreign potentate to dictate foreign policies have devastating consequences, one of which is moral and intellectual bondage. Nikki Haley is a classic example. She is just a new puppet on the block. Listen to her very carefully here:

How much longer is Russia going to continue to babysit and make excuses for the Syrian regime? People have died by being suffocated to death. That’s barbaric…Whether people are going to veto it or not, you are either for chemical weapons or you’re against it. People died because of this, and the United States isn’t going to be quiet. Thank you.”

Where does this woman get this message? If Trump is concerned about America first, if he is worried that America has already spent at least six-trillion dollars in the Middle East (and this is true),[12] why doesn’t he fire people like Haley?

Nikki Haley

Haley just shows that Trump’s foreign policy doesn’t look not promising at all. And people like Haley are just regurgitating what the Israeli regime has been propounded for years. Haley meant it when she said:

“I’m here to underscore the ironclad support of the United States for Israel. I am here to emphasize that the United States is determined to stand up to the U.N.’s anti-Israel bias.[13]

“Ironclad support”? Where is that in the Constitution? And why just Israel? What about Germany, Iceland, Sweden, Belgium, the Netherlands, etc.? Didn’t George Washington, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, among others, warn us all about unconditional (and conditional) alliances with foreign countries?

Haley doesn’t stop here. She has more interesting things to say:

“Incredibly, the U.N. department of political affairs has an entire division devoted entirely to Palestinian affairs. Imagine that. There is no division devoted to illegal missile launches form North Korea. There is no division devoted to the world’s number one state sponsor of terror, Iran. The prejudiced approach to Israeli-Palestinian issues does the peace process no favors, and it bears no relationship to the reality of the world around us. The double standards are breathtaking.[14]

Can this woman pick up a historical study on this issue and start learning the alphabet of the Middle East? Can he start reading Benny Morris’ magnum opus The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem Revisited, which was published by Cambridge University Press? How about Ilan Pappe’s The Forgotten Palestinians: A History of the Palestinians in Israel(Yale University Press)? Morris again meant it when he said unapologetically:

“Jewish state would not have come into being without the uprooting of 700,000 Palestinians. Therefore it was necessary to uproot them. There was no choice but to expel that population. It was necessary to cleanse the hinterland and cleanse the border areas and cleanse the main roads. It was necessary to cleanse the villages from which our convoys and our settlements were fired on.”[15]

If Morris is right, then does Haley really want us all to focus on North Korea and forget about the annihilation of Palestinian men, women and children? Should we live that issue up to the Israeli regime?

Moreover, does the scholarly world support the oft-repeated claim that Iran is “the world’s number one state sponsor of terror”?[16] You see, Haley again got this source from Netanyahu, who said that Iran “seeks to conquer the Middle East”! This is Netanyahu at his best: Iran “threatens Europe; it threatens the West; it threats the world.”

Now that’s what I call a truly delusional person who should be in a mental institution somewhere.


In any event, there is enough evidence which indicates that the so-called rebels, not the Assad government, had used chemical weapons and blamed it on Assad. I and other VT writers such as Gordon Duff, Jim W. Dean, Kevin Barrett, etc., have addressed this issue in the past. In fact, the so-called rebels made it public in 2012 that they would use chemical weapons and put the blame on the Assad government.[17] As Duff declared last November:

Russia has tried over and over to present evidence, to present medical evidence of the use of sarin gas, of the use of mustard gas, massive use of chlorine gas. In 2014, in January, the Syrian army captured a chemical warfare manufacturing facility,… captured in that facility a Turkish officer who was running the facility, captured Saudi and Qatari officers there, none of this is ever reported, none of the evidence that the Russians are trying to submit [and] have taken to the UN was ever accepted.”

NWO agents obviously didn’t want to know because that would ruin their reputation as agents of chaos.
