Idlib ‘chemical attack’ was false flag to set Assad up, more may come – Putin
Posted on April 11th, 2017


Russia has information of a potential incident similar to the alleged chemical attack in Idlib province, possibly targeting a Damascus suburb, President Vladimir Putin said. The goal is to discredit the government of Syrian President Assad, he added.

We have reports from multiple sources that false flags like this one – and I cannot call it otherwise – are being prepared in other parts of Syria, including the southern suburbs of Damascus. They plan to plant some chemical there and accuse the Syrian government of an attack,” he said at a joint press conference with Italian President Sergio Mattarella in Moscow.

Damascus denied the allegations, noting that the targeted area may have been hosting chemical weapons stockpiles belonging to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) or Al-Nusra Front jihadists.

The incident has not been properly investigated as yet, but the US fired dozens of cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase in a demonstration of force over what it labeled a chemical attack by Damascus.

President Mattarella and I discussed it, and I told him that this reminds me strongly of the events in 2003, when the US representatives demonstrated at the UN Security Council session the presumed chemical weapons found in Iraq. The military campaign was subsequently launched in Iraq and it ended with the devastation of the country, the growth of the terrorist threat and the appearance of Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS] on the world stage,” he added.

It was the first time the US had targeted Syrian troops deliberately. The White House says it will repeat military action in response to any possible new chemical weapon attacks.

The sight of people being gassed and blown away by barrel bombs ensures that if we see this kind of action again, we hold open the possibility of future action,” spokesman Sean Spicer said Monday.

Putin reiterated the call to properly investigate what happened in Khan Sheikhoun, saying that the alleged use of chemical weapons demands one.

We are planning to address the corresponding UN structure in The Hague and call on the international community to thoroughly investigate all those reports and take appropriate action based on the results of such a probe,” he said.

A separate report of a potential false flag operation in Syria came from the Russian General Staff, which said militants were transporting toxic agents into several parts of Syria, including Eastern Ghouta, the site of the 2013 chemical weapons incident.

These actions are aimed at creating a new pretext for accusing the government of Syria of more chemical weapons attacks and provoking more strikes by the US,” said Colonel General Sergey Rudskoy, the head of Operations.

    Melting Butter and Trump

    Trump is melting like butter in the hands of the Washington Establishment and his distractors. They prepared the ground from the very beginning of this Presidency with their incessant tirades against Russia.

    Trump did not have a clear foreign or military policy of his own and into the vacuum flowed in the prodigies of the Washington Establishment and EU warmongers, backed by the defeated Democrats and armchair war experts and false American Heroes like John McCain and Lindsey Graham. He was even foolish for allowing the Secretary of State – Rex Tillerson, Ambassdor to the UN – Nikki Haley ( A very bad choice for America -with bad genes) and Defence Secretary – General Mattis to follow their own agendas. They all have now finally coaxed a very vulnerable, naive and egotistic Trump to fall in line with their own agendas.

    It has happened to the Boy Scout President George W Bush, Prof Obama and now to this Former Real Estate Magnate Trump. The world had such high hopes on Trump that he will move away from the warmongers and get down to business of regaining the faltering US economy, building of its faltering infrastructure and matters more close to US borders. Now he is back to protecting other’s borders in Europe and Middle East and commiting war crimes!

    He will fail just like Bill Clinton, ,George W Bush and Obama. He has just got his first blood in his hands. He has soured the most important relationship he could have made in Europe -Putin in Russia, to make America Great Again. Let us hope that he will not make another Vietnam in Syria and completely misdirect the war against international terrorism and Islamic Terrorists.

    Unless he mend his ways, end his ego maximus journey, he will end up leading the US to where Breshnev led Russia to – financial and economic bankruptcy! Getting his immediate family up close and in the White House will spell disaster to him! What a shame!!

    I am disappointed that Trup does not see this chemical as a SETUP JOB by Syrian groups supported by the US to get MORE DIRECT GROUND INVOLVEMENT by the US when they are losing on all fronts!

    But, it may be that Trump is playing CALLOUS POLITICS here, to HELP OFFSET and develop anti-Russian credentials at a time when he and his Administration are under growing criticism in the US.

    These critics allege that Russia interfered in the last Presidential election which propelled Trump into the White House.

    Maybe Trump KNOWS this chemical attack was engineered by US allied Syrian groups, but he now finds it politically convrnient to blame the Syrian govt and bomb Syria to demonstrate his strength, not to the Syrian govt but to his Democratic critics in the United States!
