One, two, three, FIRE (X 59)

How should we react to this double assault:
- Assad gets blamed for killing his own people “including babies” — a fairly unlikely scenario
- Trump “punishes” Assad, by – of course – killing more human beings.
When I first heard about the chemical attack, the 2007 Wesley Clark interview come immediately to mind.
Clark a retired General in the US Army (and Rhodes Scholar) revealed (on the Amy Goodman show) the Neocon plan to destroy seven countries in the Middle East. He had supposedly learned of this plan from a 2001 Pentagon memo.
That is now 16 years ago! Sixteen years of bombardment by the US and, to some extent, by Australia.
Syria was one of the seven countries on Wesley Clark’s list – we must see this as a clear indication that ASSAD’S BEHAVIOR IS NOT THE CAUSE OF THIS STRIKE.
Note: This morning Malcolm Turnbull said Trump’s response was “swift and just.”
A previous chemical attack in Ghouta in 2013 was most likely orchestrated by Saudi Arabia — as reported by Mint Press. There were interviews with doctors, Ghouta residents, rebel fighters and their families, indicating that. It claimed that certain rebels received chemical weapons via the Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan.
The recent alleged gassing of approximately 80 people (which included many children) occurred on April 4, 2017.
Why would President Bashar al-Assad, just as Syria was settling after he gained ground — risk everything by a chemical attack? Even President Trump had indicated that the Assad regime should stay.
It doesn’t add up.
According to the Western press, President al-Assad was behind the attacks, and photographs of the still smoking bombed base (below) and suspect barrels quickly emerged.
This allegedly crossed the line for President Donald Trump and he gave the go-ahead for the strikes (without Congress’ approval). He said that they were the “heinous actions by the Bashar al-Assad regime.”
Why did the US not wait for a proper investigation? And it is reported that senior US military officials are looking into whether Russia participated in Syria’s chemical weapons attack. Someone wants to incite tension between Russia and the US.
The ABC reported that the Russian Defence Ministry said the US attack destroyed six planes in repair hangers, but that only 23 of the rockets hit the target, and that it isn’t clear where the other 36 landed.
Former Congressman Ron Paul has said there is “zero chance” Assad was behind the attack.
As the prospect of peace in Syria was moving closer before the attack, and with ISIS and Al-Qaeda on the run, Paul said: (as reported in Zerohedge):
“It doesn’t make any sense for Assad under these conditions to all of a sudden use poison gases – I think there’s zero chance he would have done this deliberately.”
“Who benefits?… It’s the neo-conservatives who are benefiting tremendously from this because it’s derailed the progress that has already been made moving toward a more peaceful settlement in Syria,” said Paul.
Is Assad that strategically stupid?
Like many false flags (e.g, 9-11), evidence seems to be emerging that certain individuals on the ground in Syria may have had foreknowledge of the attack up to several days before it happened. Globalresearch reports:
“On April 3rd, 2017, an anti-Assad journalist tweeted that the next day he would be launching a media campaign to cover airstrikes on the Hama countryside, including the use of chemical weapons.
“On April 1st, 2017, a doctor on the ground in Khan Sheikhoun, Dr. Shajul Islam, had received several shipments of gas masks in the days running up to the chemical incident.”
Footage from the scene of the incident taken by the Syrian White Helmets appears to me to show that their operatives were not assisting victims in a manner according to established protocol. The way to handle sarin-saturated bodies requires the use of gloves not bare hands.
Even this photo seems odd to me.
A man carries a child victim in a quarry.
I remember another strange suspicious episode filmed in a quarry-like facility.
The ground is wet. There are men in white suits in the background. There is a container-like structure on the right. What is this place?
I wonder who is running this “show”?
