ADDENDUM: Sputnik 28 June 2017: The US has refused to provide any evidence of the Syrian government’s alleged chemical attack preparations, claiming the information was “an intelligence matter.” Washington had previously acknowledged that Damascus had destroyed its entire chemical weapons arsenal in 2014, under a deal brokered with Moscow’s help.
Responding to Ambassador Haley’s remarks, Senior Russian Senator Alexei Pushkov, well-known for his pithy commentary on foreign affairs issues, sarcastically dismantled her claims, tweeting that the official “can’t sleep at night” because all she seems to think about is defending terrorists.
The White House claims that the Syrian government is preparing “chemical weapon attacks”. This is clearly not the case. Syria is winning the war against the country. Any such attack would clearly be to its disadvantage. The White House announcement must thereby be understood as preparation for another U.S. attack on Syria in “retaliation” for an upcoming staged “chemical weapon attack” which will be blamed on the Syrian government (Moon of Alabama 27 June 2017 ).
President Trump is now a puppet of the US military industrial complex which wants war with Iran and Russia.
The following seems to bode an upcoming clash in Syria between these 3 powers.
US UN ambassador Nikki Haley said on Twitter: “Any further attacks done to the people of Syria will be blamed on Assad, but also on Russia and Iran who support him killing his own people.”
Her comments came as the White House revealed it had identified potential preparations by Assad’s regime for another chemical weapons attack on its people.The White House statement said: “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 children.“If, however, Mr Assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons, he and his military will pay a heavy price.”
Donald Trump blamed Assad for the chemical weapons attack which killed at least 87 people, including 30 children, in the Syria’s northern Idlib province in April.
And in retaliation, the American President launched 59 Tomahawk missiles on a Syrian air base – which according to the US Department of Defence destroyed 20 per cent of the nation’s operational aircraft.
It follows comments by Brigadier-General Zaher al-Sakat – who served as head of chemical warfare in Syria’s powerful 5th Division until he defected in 2013 – that Assad has hidden hundreds of tonnes of the nation’s chemical arsenal despite the leader saying he had given over their entire supply to the United Nations.
ANSAmed 27 June 2017 has the same story.
DEBKAfile 27 June 2017 Signs were gathering in Washington and the Middle East Tuesday, June 26 that the Trump administration was preparing a substantial military operation against the Syrian army and Bashar Assad’s allies, such as the foreign pro-Iranian Shiite militias and Hizballah.
Some US military sources suggested that an American preemptive strike was in store in the coming hours to prevent Assad’s army from again resorting to chemical warfare against his people. Merkwürdig, wie humanitär die USA plötzlich geworden seien: Obamas USA sind Urheber des syrischen sowie der afghanischen, irakischen und libyschen Kriege
Odd, how humanitarian the USA has has turned : The US started the Syrian, Afghani, Iraqi, Libyan wars.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Monday night that the US “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.”
A repetition of a US carrier-based attack on Syria would challenge the warning Moscow issued to Washington on June 24 after the Syrian warplane was shot down:
“From now on, in areas where Russian aviation performs combat missions in the skies of Syria, any airborne objects found west of the Euphrates River, including aircraft and unmanned vehicles belonging to the international coalition, tracked by means of Russian land and air anti-aircraft defense, will be considered air targets.”
Russia´s legal, US´illegal basis in Syria (DEBKAfile 23 June 2017).
This warning by the White House on the basis of previous knowledge of Assad´s plans stink of the announcement of a false flag – indeed, the US may even preemptively attack for “humanitarian reasons to prevent a crime of war by Assad”.
The US states “similar preparations as before the Idlib gas attack” – which was in all reasonable probability a false flag/even psyop perpetrated by US allies with the gas Assad had delivered to the UN visa the US, which handed part of it over to its allied rebels:
Reuters 11 April 2017: President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that Russia had information that the United States was planning to launch new missile strikes on Syria, and that there were plans to fake chemicals weapons attacks there – as I wrote on 11. April 2017.
