US official threatens Syria over ‘gas attack plan’

… from Press TV,  Teheran

Who has more credibility, Assad, or Trump and Spicer?

[ Editor’s Note: Just when I think the US could not sink any lower in its geopolitical demagoguery, I get blindside by this incredible White House statement about the Assad government preparing a new chemical attack.

It appears that one really can just make this stuff up. Of course, no specifics were mentioned; and left out, as always, was any explanation as to WHY Assad would do something so stupid.

He would be throwing away the hard-fought gains of his people against ISIS and the US coalition, with its own terrorist army operating in Syria. When we have a clear and unrepentant record of the US, Israel and the Gulf State terror hoodlums having mass-murdered Syrians and destroyed so much of Syria, why would Assad do such a stupid thing at this critical point?

The only feasible explanation is that segments of our own government have become a major national security risk to the rest of us.

This is evidenced by the never-ending tragicomedy of claiming that a Russia on the other side of the world, with less than 10% of NATO’s military budget and no massive forward military basing infrastructure like we have, is a major threat to the American people.

The Repub-la-thugs, who never would have brokered the Iran nuclear deal, which was hailed by virtually all of the world as a huge step toward avoiding a disastrous confrontation in the Mideast, now want to undo all that with their new Iran and Russia boogeyman medicine show.

Have they forgotten that their long-claimed Iranian secret nuclear weapons program was exposed as a total hoax, when not even Israel put one shred of evidence on the table of its existence? Our “free press” disgraced itself by totally ignoring that crucial part of the P5+1 agreement, as the press was fully on board the scam, when even VT, with its limited financial resources, had debunked it for years via our own key sources, and we were never challenged by anyone of standing.

The American people are in a very dangerous situation when such unbelievable statements like this can come out of the White House. What will the American people do about it? I am afraid the answer to that will be nothingJim W. Dean ]

More fake news from the White House, this one on steroids

You can read this article without advertisements here.

– First published  …  June 27,  2917

The White House has accused Syria of preparing to stage a chemical attack in the Arab country, threatening that the US would make Damascus pay “a heavy price.”

Press Secretary Sean Spicer claimed in a Monday statement that the US had “identified potential preparations” for an attack “that would likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children.”

Spicer said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian military would “pay a heavy price” if they went ahead with the alleged plan.

A familiar manner of ratcheting up tensions

The Associated Press, meanwhile, cited anonymous US State Department officials who would “typically” be consulted before such statements are made as saying that they had been caught “completely off guard” by Spicer’s statement and that they had come to know about it only after it was released.

The AP report also said that the content of Spicer’s statement “didn’t appear to be discussed in advance with other national security agencies.”

On April 4, over 80 people died in an incident involving chemicals in the town of Khan Shaykhun in the western Idlib Province of Syria. Western countries blamed the Syrian government for what they said was a chemical attack, and days later, the US used it as a pretext to fire 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian airfield in the central province of Homs. US officials claimed that the alleged Khan Shaykhun gas attack had been launched from that airfield.

This is while Syria and its ally Russia said the Syrian government had conducted a conventional airstrike on militant positions in Khan Shaykhun, which also targeted a chemical arms depot held and run by anti-Damascus militants, causing a leakage of the toxic substance and the deaths.

Veteran American investigative journalist Seymour M. Hersh recently confirmed the Syrian narrative. He said that US President Donald Trump had ignored important intelligence reports before issuing the order for the missile attack against the Syrian airfield in reaction to the Khan Shaykhun incident.

According to Hersh, Trump turned a blind eye to reports by the US intelligence community which warned that there was no evidence suggesting the Syrians had used a chemical weapon. The US intelligence had found that the Syrians had on April 4 targeted a meeting site of militants, using a Russian-supplied guided bomb equipped with conventional explosives.

Following the US missile strike, Russia said the US could have prompted an all-out war as the projectiles could have hit Russian forces in the Arab country.

Another US official threatens Iran, Russia, too

Also on Monday, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley issued similar remarks on Twitter, saying, “Any further attacks done to the people of Syria will be blamed on Assad, but also on Russia & Iran.”

Russia has been lending its airpower to Syria’s counterterrorism operations since September 2015. Iran has also been providing the Syrian military with advisory military support. The collective support has helped Syria rid considerable territory of Takfiri presence and helped establish an all-out ceasefire in the Arab country in late 2016.

Russia has already suspended a military hotline with the US over another provocative incident that saw US forces shoot down a Syrian fighter jet.

The ratcheting up of tensions by the US, including with the latest statement, now risks sparking a major confrontation between parties to the Syrian conflict and complicating efforts aimed at resolving it.

The US has unsanctioned presence in Syria. Just hours earlier on Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had called on the US to prevent “provocations” against Syrian government forces.

In a phone call initiated by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Lavrov “called on Washington to take steps to prevent provocations against Syrian government forces carrying out operations against terrorists,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

  1. Only last week it was reported:
    “My lines are clear(Macron): Firstly, a complete fight against all the terrorist groups. They are our enemies. We need everybody’s cooperation, especially Russia, to eradicate them.”[1]
    and also:
    “Keep also in mind that Macron radically overturned France’s position in Syria.“ [oh, how wonderful]
    Remember that our good Mr. Dean, only last week, tells us that Macron will be very nice to Syria, unless, of course, Assad has chemical weapons stocked on the ground, “then we will conduct unilateral strikes…“
    And only a week before that, old Uri tries to sell us this red hot burning Zionist as the new wave…

    And guess who is right this very moment digging chemical weapons into Syrian ground?

  2. Kind of scary — Putin cares about his people and their simple lifestyles and the US knows this -whereas the US/Israeli Gov. could care less about their people – since the politicians, corporate leaders and select government employees will be heading down into their taxpayer funded nuke bunkers while the missiles fly. Nothing like a good ole Nuclear War to hide all the lies, thievery and murder that the USG and their Axis allies have kept from the good people of their countries.

  3. This is the same scare tactic straight out of the Zionist play book and more than likely taken home from Israel and Bibi by All American hero “baby-shadow-boxer-in-tranny-shorts” Kushner for dissemination but only managed to get it out to White House gardeners and Spicer who got his thumb pricked; even Haley, the beardless-Sikh Goebbels was left in the lurch reduced to responding by Twitter. Meanwhile Bannon and McMaster had to be shocked and too embarrassed to extend the news down the grapevine to the Pentagon and US general staff – Israel’s perennial fall-guys long since deemed surplus to requirements by Trump’s IDF and Mossad backers edging US forces to the center of the Talmud trap-door and taking yet another one for the Goy Gipper.

  4. It looks like some people in the white house pave the way for Israel to prevent (kill) Assad before “gassing his own people” and making lampshades out of their skin.

    The dogma of an almighty god is in its last desperation…as the promises turn into into a real hell…..from the Nile to the Euphrates.

    The exodus of the Israelites and the punishment of the Egyptians by an almighty god never happened ….its a hypothetical false flag story.

    The old testament finally became a handbook for Jihadis..a monotheistic evil workshop …a strategy to conquer and enslave the world.

    There is a lot of sabotage on Trump…..he is sitting on stubborn horse and someone untightened the cinch….so its up to Putin to tighten up, he is pretty good in handling animals.

  5. I heard this disinformation on the AM radio this morning. Another what the heck moment. Our media and government is insane. Even the Lemmings should figure this one out.

  6. when the White House on a global stage falsely accuses Syria of preparing to stage “another” chemical attack, as Trump puts it, we must see this is as their own operation and a pre-staging announcement ….preparing in advance to “cast” the blame through a screen of lies…stupidly believing the world believes their claims when we have seen through them all…. “identified potential preparations” for an attack “that would likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children.”…facts prove this is precisely what the US supports, funds and funnels into Syria….how low will the US go?….the answer is how low will israel go, “mass murder of innocent civlilians, including children” is their MO….the US obviously has plans in place to carry this out, why do 99 out of 100 Senators refuse to sign the STOP ARMING TERRORISTS ACT?….. because this is precisely what they do and the world is awake to this fact….we hold their feet to the fire

  7. The WH policy is clear as a bell if observing actions instead of tweets. They will pursue a policy of christian domination in support of the jewish state, pursue oil and gas resources and pipelines no matter the location but strategically financial in nature. They will cut as much money going to the poor and working class as possible to feign budgetary responsibility. They will sell weapons at the highest price possible no matter the buyer or usage. They will threaten any country or person who stands in the way of financial goals, and will target the families of opposition. They will entrench themselves financially with any country willing to do business by way of nepotism and connections. They will loot and pillage the MIC and real estate markets. They will throw millions into for profit prisons based on religious fraud that pretends to be morally just. That is what they are doing. What they say, is just fodder for the media and a way to “adjust” the narrative or rid themselves of troublesome reporters. This statement of “preparations” is purposefully arrogant, to send a message. They want that pipeline and everything else they can steal.

  8. Halley’s comments are the most disturbing. This now looks like the US war mongers are trying to find a way to back Iran and Russia in a corner to force their hand. Putin will try all the ‘legal’ ways to prevent this, including the UNSC. What will this achieve? There will be no resolution due to US-UK failure to approve. Still, Russia will have it’s say on record. How will Putin defuse this? Good question. Lavrov will be very busy trying to put this plan to rest. I hate to say it, but this may be where Russia is forced to confront the US with a red line declaration. Where this will lead, who knows. I guess we will get to see who blinks first. This proves one thing…the US can see the writing on the wall and it doesn’t say anything good about their chances of stopping Syria and co as things are progressing now. Will Europe back the US? UK lapdog will. EU better take some initiative or they could in up in the fire too.

  9. I think everyone expected this by now, right? The only way out of this now is for a federation declaration between Syria and Russia where Syria joins the Russian federation. Syria would in effect be part of the Russian territory and the US will have to be insane beyond any imagination to attack it. The Russian should also transfer a nuclear arsenal to Syria getting closer to Europe and the US in a CLEAR sign of get the hell out or else. Subtle and diplomatic actions don’t work with Bibi, Trump and their likes.

    • What the Russians need to understand is that if they turn the other cheek this time, the US and Israhell will slap them silly! The Russians and Iranians must realize by now that they’re the ultimate target; if the Terrorists gain in Syria and Irak, the next target will be destablizing Turkey and Iran with the Kurds and Armenians and all the small counties in the area by consequence thus getting to the Russian door step. Iran and Russia know this and they need to act before they’re next or it will be too late for them both countries already got a few terrorist attacks.

  10. Well Jim, The US did not move the missles to their S. Syria base with the intention of not using them. All that’s missing is another false flag. All this posturing is becoming boring. As are the illogical drum beats out if DC.
    Assad’s statement of his intention to reclaim every inch of occupied Syria must mean the Golan Heights too. Iq1srael must beieve it, and has decided it is better if the US gets 100% involved now. That’s better than facing the prospect of having to give the stolen land back. Let American soldiers die. We are just cattle anuway.

  11. Yes, the Trump team and Israel have become, as Tom Clancy would put it, ‘ a clear and present danger ‘, bringing the US and the world to the precipice of war and Armageddon . I am not astonished by the new ill informed and unbelievable accusation against Assad. I think we have all expected something like this. Assad is winning against Daesh, so Israel and its US sayanim are besides themselves with rage looking for a way to save what is left of their terrorist camaraderie. I wonder. Will Russia look the other way-again- to avoid a nuclear war? How many times can it do this?
