Syria Again

VX Gas

VX Gas


By Michael Shrimpton


It has been a grim and desperate attritional battle, against heavy odds, thanks to poor national leadership.  That’s enough about the Fifth Test Match the Oval, however.  Over to Syria.

I am comfortable that Assad deployed a nerve agent in East Damascus.  I am more of a specialist in nuclear weapons than nerve gases, but at this time I am thinking VX.  It might however be a new agent.  Assad is backed by the DVD, our community partner the Hun does nerve gases better than anyone (three of my great-uncles were gassed by the dastardly Hun in the Great War) and he may have come up with a new variant, possibly a development of an existing gas with greater lethality.

The Syrians and the Germans are bound to be worried about the number of survivors.  Their stories, and symptoms, have been very helpful in determining that this was a gas attack.

Forget the Administration.  Even if they didn’t green-light the attack, which might well have been cleared with Washington, the Administration will let it go.  We are not talking George W. Bush here!  When he drew a line in the sand you knew not to cross it.  When Mr O draws a line in the sand you just kick some in his face and keep on doing what you were doing.

Innocent Syrian civilians are paying the price for media and political mistakes after Iraq.  When hardly any WMDs were found the left wing and the media leapt to the conclusion that because they weren’t there after the war they weren’t there before the war.  That was a non sequitur if ever there was one.  INTELCOM knew the WMDs had been shipped to Syria (it later emerged some went to Iraq and back to Russia) between the fall of 2002 and spring 2003.  The facts were kept back from George W., however.

I am not speaking after the event.  I had a letter published in the law pages of the Times (the London Times, not the LA Times, which is rather better written) saying just that, in March 2003, written before we went in.

Unfortunately the job of investigating the Syrian WMD attacks has been given to the CIA.  I love them to bits, and they have some good people, but they have history for politicising the intelligence.  I haven’t forgotten the problems the White House and the Pentagon had with them over the links between Iraq and 9/11.  The problems with the CIA really start with the 5th floor and get worse the higher up you go.

The CIA guys at the coalface will get it right, but by the time the intelligence is leaked to the Post it will be inconclusive and the Administration will have their get out of jail card.  In a world as violent and dysfunctional as ours the deaths will soon be forgotten.  They won’t even rate a question in the Presidential debates in 2016.


You can forget the UN as well.  They are as big a joke as the League of Nations.  With a charter drafted by a German spy (John Foster Dulles),you could hardly expect otherwise.  It is time the West pulled out of the UN.  One you let China into an international organisation it’s time for everybody else to leave.  No one in Peking is going to be too worried about a bunch of dead Syrian civilians, and Peking has a veto.  By staying in the UN the UK and the USA are simply encouraging the use of WMDs by Syria, and a whole bunch of other problems besides.

There is no way of booting China out of the UN, and no way of reforming it, any more than the EU could be reformed.  The organisation isn’t failing, it’s failed.  The break-up process should start now.


The refund came through, so I won’t name the guys in Boca Raton why stuffed up my last laptop!  The new laptop is lovely, partly because it’s not a Dell.  It does however use Windows 8 (I know, but I liked the touch screen).  This means that dowloading Word becomes problematic.  Why that should be I have no idea.  All I know is I have spent most of the day kicking my heels whilst my computer consultant tried to get Word going, having failed with my scanner (‘it doesn’t work with Windows 8, but no problem, you just need to spend another £60 on a Network Storage Device’).

Therefore I am writing this column on a horrible piece of junk called OpenOffice Writer (trust me, you don’t want it!).  With a fully working IT set-up I’ll have more time next week to reply to various posts over the last couple of weeks.  I seem to have spent an entire fortnight chasing after IT problems.


The inquest has just started into the tragic death of Flt Lt Sean Cunningham, Red Five of the Red Arrows.  Sean, 35, an experienced pilot, was blown 200 feet into the air in November 2011 after the  ejector seat of his Hawk trainer fired, whilst he was on the ground.  The Coroner, Stuart Fisher, with respect is obsessing on ‘faulty design of the ejector seat handle.’   Unless I am very much mistaken it was a Martin Baker ejector seat.  They know where to put the handle.

The pilots amongst you will be asking what happened to the parachute.  Well may you ask.  It failed.  Huh.  How does the placement of the ejector seat handle stop the parachute from opening?    The ‘investigation’ was put into the hands of Lincolnshire Police, probably because some one didn’t want the RAF to find out what really happened.

I intend no offence to Lincolnshire Police when I say that they wouldn’t know one of an airplane from another.  They probably think that ejector seats are only fitted to Aston Martins.  Martin Baker can’t do anything.  If they started asking serious questions they’d lose MOD contracts, like dear old Handley Page did after they stood up to Cabinet Office pressure to transfer technology to France.   De Havilland were forced to accept responsibility for the Comet crashes in the same way.  Whitehall is vicious when it comes to smashing British companies about, which is why we in the Tory Party need to start getting tough on Whitehall, starting with their feather-bedded pensions and ‘bonuses’ (the in-word for bribes).

I am not buying negligent design as an explanation for the death of Red Five.  The incident has all the appearance of sabotage, of both the seat and the chute.  Sadly it will never be investigated properly, at least not until Britain leaves the EU.  The inquest will carry on its farcical way, no offence intended.  It will just be another ‘bash the defence industry’ exercise with the defence industry powerless to answer back.  Sabotage will not even feature as an explanation and the failure of the chute will hardly be looked at.

The fact that German assets in the Cabinet Office and MOD have been waging war on the Red Arrows for several years will certainly not be mentioned.  The Cabinet Office went after the Arrows  after the Coalition was formed in 2010.  Having failed to close them down getting GO2 to murder a couple of pilots (Red Five was the second to go down) would be about par for the course.  They would know that the chances of a serious investigation or inquest would be next to nil.


The media have been moaning about the Camerons’ latest holiday.  They are not getting the point.  The Prime Minister doesn’t run the country, any more than the government does.  The Civil Service are the de facto government, and the Civil Service are tightly controlled by the Cabinet Office.  As I keep saying Cameron is just a figurehead.  He may as well be on a beach in Cornwall as in Number 10.  I doubt that the Cabinet Secretary even consults him on major decisions.

The encouraging thing is that there are sharks off Cornish beaches and the Prime Minister enjoys swimming.  Sadly, however, our sharks are not what an Aussie would call a shark.  They tend to be basking sharks, which only eat plankton, not Prime Ministers, or small tiger sharks.  What we really want are the sort of Great Whites (this software is ridiculous – it keeps trying to predict what I want to write, and just suggested ‘great-uncles’!) you get off Western Australian beaches.   There’s never a Great White around however, when you want some one eaten.

As you may imagine frustration in the Conservative Party with the Prime Minister and the Hun-loving, shale gas hating, wind-turbine erecting Coalition has reached boiling point.

And, no, the SAS did not murder Diana!   The DVD’s French black agency did, working with GO2, which had at least three officers in Paris that night, including its current director, no names, no pack drill.

    Cameron has backed off on strikes, according to today’s news, while Obama hasn’t decided yet. Meanwhile, General Vallely was interviewed by Newsmax today, and told them that Assad and family have fled to Iran today. A busy day…

  2. blakehamilton  August 26, 2013 at 1:30 am

    Okay according to Jim Dean they offer all perspectives on here but this judge and jury zio shill is just vile.

    Zionists Oded Yinon plan is to destabilize entire Mid East, breaking up countries into smaller enclaves based on ethnicity & religious sect because they do not want any large powerful countries in region as people of MidEast have never accepted ethnic cleansing of Palestine/Palestinian genocide. In order to survive they have to smash their neighbors into little pieces , seen happening since 9/11, an Israeli sponsored coup d’état designed to launch America’s military power against the Mid East.

    Zionist Mossad motto : Through deception thou doest wars.

    Do the math!

      Although they could be a little more populist and a little less “conservative”…and they need to give Richard ( “we let OBL build up a terror network” -that didn’t exist ) Walker the heave ho..

    I often wonder what Radio Israel sounds like, now I know. But, while not deying some of the facts presented, even without the hate propaganda, Obama’s issue is more than a line in the sand to which dear Bibi keeps pushing for war, any war, just get started, they will manage it from Tel Aviv. The issue for Obama is donating US blood for all those Neo Con clamoring for wars. Profit is slowing down, even the drugs commerce is are getting hard. Bibi is getting restless so get on with it. And don’t thing all in the USA are so brainwhashed the do not know who started that Egypt problem or the Benghazi one. Obama has no desire or the ego to become a War President. We also fret at his words sometime but we know who is pushing. The American People have no desire to send their sons to fight a war just because some claim the USA and Obama should lead. The Constitution say otherwise and it is NOT just a piece of paper. The main reason we feel we have to stay connnected is becsue we know the evil that caused the problems in the first place, the evil that will never stop unless made to stop. So Mr. Hero, Lead on, but not with our troops.
    We have atrocities right here in Mexico by those lovely Drug Barons once organized by the Rothchild sons
    and happily joined by those sons of prominent fathers we have here. “Bibi want to rule the Middle East and beyond, it is clear Manifest Destiny from your special God. Well, go ahead but, as WE said in the London Times on Iraq, ‘NOT IN OUR NAME”

    • LOB2065  August 24, 2013 at 11:16 pm

      Yes, so if the Russians decide to start WW3 my thinking it that they will hit the following first:

      1. Israel because it is of strategic importance and being small it will not take many nukes to get rid of it especially if they hit Dimona, and

      2. An EMP attack on Silicon Valley would destroy America’s technology advantage and cause most of the technology R & D to head off shore.

    Get my drift?

    Articles from the “Shrimp” give me such joy. I haven’t read any after the first couple. I now just go directly to the comments. It’s comforting to know that the VT audience gets it. I hope they never make an attempt to block him. He’s always good for a sanity check.

    The Model that each American citizen and others around the world must contains THREE simple questions and a note.

    Who is going to benefit from a gas’ attack against innocent civilians in Syria?
    a- Syrian Military
    b- Extremist Foreign Rats
    c – Israel, Saudia Arabia, Qatar
    d – NATO (US- UK-France- Turkey)

    Who did use sarin gas two month ago?
    a – Syrian Military
    b – Foreign Rats and other entities with knowledge on how to make sarin

    Who paid British mercenaries to hire Ukrainians(Because Ukrainians speak Russian – Let’s blame the Russian)?
    a – Syria
    b – Qatar and NATO
    c – Hezbollah

    A note:
    Hillary Clinton said in the UN meeting a while ago that ” Russia and China must pay the price for slowing
    us down”

    Slowing us from what? May be, she meant her bosses aren’t happy because their goal is a regime’s change in Iran. But, they must keep selling the smoke screen regarding nuclear Iran to the world.

    • gerryhiles  August 24, 2013 at 5:21 pm

      PLEASE just Google PNAC. The plan for the new American century, e.g. with Iraq, Libya and Syria targeted for destruction within five years … but that was about 1999.

      How long will it take people, including you ffff , to wake up?

      Hillary was referring to the PNAC,

  8. stephanaugust  August 24, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    Where is the place where this article is published where there are also people believing this?

    (I can not find it at Frontpagemag, Worldnetdaily, Breitbart, Huffingtonpost, Freerepublic, Democratic Underground.)

    “Princess Die” was the self-proclaimed ‘brood mare’ for the Illuminati and the details of her assassination indicate that it was a ritual blood sacrifice…no question.

    Hey Michael, that’s a nice load of Zionist BS you dropped on us there. Don’t step in any of it.

  11. Christina  August 24, 2013 at 7:30 am

    This article is just more evil zionist war propaganda. The gas attack is just another false-flag attack designed to provide the evil zionist war machine an excuse to enter the war. Fewer and fewer people have any trust in zionist western media or politicians. We do not trust you any more, just go away and do no more evil.

  12. captain obvious  August 24, 2013 at 7:28 am

    absolutely, this article garbage lies. we already got it being a false flag attack by Izrahell.

  13. adil  August 24, 2013 at 6:31 am

    why vt allows such insane msm mole on their site? if anything then western leaders should be charged with murdering civilians using illegally shipped nerve gas. but then I suspect the event is a fake one just like newton and boston events

  14. LOB2065  August 23, 2013 at 10:42 pm

    The Americans have lost their proxy war in Syria and Assad and the Syrian Army have won.

    It is time for America to pack up its fully funded and armed terrorists and ask them to go home and stop killing people in Syria.

    Everyone knows that Assad has already won this war which is why he would definitely NOT use chemical weapons on his own people. I suppose the American Government had to try one more lie before calling the whole thing a failure. In the rest of the west we are used to America’s lies, so no one is surprised.

    Americans propaganda – the only thing that Americans are really good at manufacturing!

  15. Allesandro  August 23, 2013 at 6:52 pm

    So as long as we’re on the subject of WMD’s let’s get your explanation on the Nuclear attacks against Syria, by Israel.

  16. JS  August 23, 2013 at 6:34 pm

    Mr. Shrimpton, thanks for info on Diana’s murderers. GO2 officers involved, need to face charges of treason, for starters. Diana was still Princess of Wales, and mother of future king.

    As for the WMDs that Iraq shipped out of the country prior to the March 2003 Iraq War, Debkafile reported, in January of 2003 I beleieve, that the WMDs were seen by satellite, being shipped out, using Russian trucks, and that those WMDs went to Lebanon’s Bekaa valley and to other sites nearby in Syria, and were buried. Later, some were reported leaving by ship.

    So the WMDs WERE there in Iraq; the mass media knew it, and lied about it. They are STILL lying about it.

    • ProtectUSA1st  August 23, 2013 at 8:16 pm

      ———-Israel was scared of Iraq prior to 2003.___On November 2002, THE WHOLE WORLD HEARD—-Ariel Sharon the former Israel PM, telling TimesOnline interviewer, just like the are saying now about Iran (Even though Israel is the ONE with 400 NWH Nuclear Weapon), ….you know that Israel control America, America does not control us….so we have already told Bush to go to Iraq and to take care of Iran.

      ———— Defector admits to WMD lies that triggered Iraq war • Man code named Curveball ‘invented’ tales of bioweapons • Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, by German and American intelligence officials who dealt with his claims, has told the Guardian that he fabricated tales of mobile bioweapons trucks and clandestine factories in an attempt to bring down the Saddam Hussein regime, from which he had fled in 1995.


    • JS  August 24, 2013 at 5:46 pm

      I don’t know much about bioweapons research in Iraq, except that they had a woman in charge, who ended up in the card deck. Dr. Germ, I think they called her.

      But the chemical weapons that Saddam had. Most of them had been sold to him by Western nations, so we knew he had them, knew what kind he had, too.

    • Worker Bee  August 25, 2013 at 3:53 am

      Debkafile is Mossad controlled, so anything they report should be taken with a mountain of salt.

    • JS  August 26, 2013 at 3:35 pm

      Like all media, they are controlled. So ignore the spin, and just look at what’s reported, see if anyone else can confirm. I haven’t looked at their site in a while, but I used read it every day before and during the 2003 Iraq War. They were correct about the WMDs in Iraq being moved, and beat the other media by about 1 month in reporting. They were by far the first to report the capture of major cards in the deck, for example.

  17. Robb  August 23, 2013 at 5:35 pm

    [Israel claimed] “the WMDs had been shipped to Syria…”

    *** (<— interesting new youtube channel)

    The London Times is known as the paper of choice for MI6 propaganda. And there have been reliable reports of Carcharodon carcharias as far north as Ullapool, so you may just get lucky.

  18. caribbeancritic  August 23, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    You Mr. Shrimpton are a mendacious piece of animated canine excrement! Strange is it not how a video of the so called chemical attack resulting in mass casualties appeared on the net the DAY BEFORE the false flag event!

  19. Worker Bee  August 23, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    Since when did being almost 26 years old make one “only a kid”?

    But the DVD did not kill Yvonne Fletcher – it was the Blu-Ray.

  20. joeflaherty  August 23, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    Never mind that the alleged victims didn’t exhibit signs of nerve gas inhalation. No foam exiting the nose and mouth. Never mind that the doctors and nurses at the hospital weren’t wearing protective gear so critical in real life scenarios as purported. The government-media news outlets would never fake a scene showing linen-covered corpses, or even use footage taken decades earlier. This certainly wasn’t a staged event (sarcasm). Perhaps Mr. Shrimpton would be willing to grab his squirrel gun, join up with Senators McCain and Graham, and catch the next flight to Damascus.

    • JS  August 23, 2013 at 6:18 pm

      Joe, I’ve seen the photos of gas victims on their beds with foam coming out of nose and mouth. But the corpses that were wrapped up ready for burial, those had their faces wiped clean already. A clean face assists the process of identification, as well as being the decent thing to do for the dead.

    • joeflaherty  August 23, 2013 at 6:59 pm

      JS; I believe the photos you’re referring to were from 6 months ago in Washington’s first attempt to sway the American people into a Syrian intervention. The pics were so faked that even the American public laughed. Crisis actors were adorned in what was obviously shaving cream about their mouths, and told to lie on stretchers. Washington’s first attempt got busted, but they never give up.

    • JS  August 26, 2013 at 3:37 pm

      If it’s all faked, that will eventually come out in the wash. Let the inspectors do their work.

    • ProtectUSA1st  August 23, 2013 at 6:49 pm

      —–More warmongers–who should catch the next flight to Damascus—are not only McCain & Graham who are Israel Firsters & in the pocket of the Zionists, lets also add the 3-Obama warmonger women (Hillary Clinton–who is out & her daughter married to a Zionist—-Susan Rice–the NSA Director & the most undiplomatic former UN Ambassador & Samantha Powers the current UN Ambassador—just like Libya they are pushing the President to go to war with Syria.

      __McCain told Japan Abe, the disputed Island is yours not China’s–which might involve USA in a war between China & Japan!–3WW

      —It is unbelievable, the so called “World Leaders—-minus China & Russia” who are dumb, corrupt, in the pocket of the Zionists & Israel Firsters deciding to go to war by watching “Fake YouTube Video spread by the Zionists owned Media.”

      —Even if the video is not fake, to claim that a smart leader like Assad who is also a doctor, used WMD not far from where he live, while the UN weapon inspectors are in Damascus must be brain dead.
