New Chemical Weapons Attack In Syria Another False Flag?
2013 08 21

From: activistpost.com



On Wednesday August 21, 2013, it was reported by numerous media outlets that a chemical weapons attack took place inside Syria which killed anywhere from 213 to 1300 people in the Damascus suburbs of Ain Tarma, Zamalka, and Jobar. The attacks were allegedly the result of rockets with chemical agents hitting the neighborhoods shortly before dawn. The attacks, if reports are accurate, would be the largest and most severe chemical weapons usage since the beginning of the Syrian destabilization campaign in 2011.

As Dominic Evans and Khaled Yacoub Oweis report for Reuters,


A nurse at Douma Emergency Collection facility, Bayan Baker, said the death toll, as collated from medical centers in the suburbs east of Damascus, was 213. 

"Many of the casualties are women and children. They arrived with their pupil dilated, cold limbs and foam in their mouths. The doctors say these are typical symptoms of nerve gas victims," the nurse said. 

Extensive amateur video and photographs purporting to show victims appeared on the Internet. A video purportedly shot in the Kafr Batna neighborhood showed a room filled with more than 90 bodies, many of them children and a few women and elderly men. Most of the bodies appeared ashen or pale but with no visible injuries. About a dozen were wrapped in blankets. 

Other footage showed doctors treating people in makeshift clinics. One video showed the bodies of a dozen people lying on the floor of a clinic, with no visible wounds. The narrator in the video said they were all members of a single family. In a corridor outside lay another five bodies. 

A photograph taken by activists in Douma showed the bodies of at least 16 children and three adults, one wearing combat fatigues, laid at the floor of a room in a medical facility where bodies were collected.


Deputy head of the Syrian National Coalition (Western-backed death squad umbrella coalition), George Sabra, has insisted that the death toll is 1,300.

Predictably, the Syrian death squads are now claiming that the Syrian government was responsible for the chemical attacks and these assertions have been repeated with the implication of truth throughout the vast majority of mainstream media outlets. Even the Evans/Oweis article published by Reuters mentioned above, although not openly accusing the Syrian government of committing the atrocity, tacitly implies that this is the case.

Indeed, before the dust from the rockets even settled, corporate media outlets such as the New York Daily News recently ran the headline “Bashar al-Assad kills 1,300 in Syrian nerve gas attack, activist estimate,” clearly suggesting that Assad was the guilty party, despite there being so many loose ends to the story now being spread about in the mainstream media circuit.

However, as has been the case with every other propaganda push against Assad regarding chemical weapons, there is absolutely no evidence to implicate the Syrian government in the launching and use of chemical agents against the Syrian people or even the death squads themselves. In fact, the accounts being published throughout the mainstream media are very suspect in their own right.

First, although there is some video evidence of chemical weapons usage, the estimates of the extent of the atrocity as well as the blame for the attacks are coming entirely from the death squads themselves. Both in the title to the Reuters article mentioned above and in nearly all of the mainstream media reports, statistics and information is prefaced by the phrase “activists say.” “Activists say,” of course, can be translated merely as “death squads” say, as the activists being referred to are indeed nothing more than terrorist killers politically, ideologically, and physically invested in the outcome and presentation of the Syrian crisis. In short, these individuals have a vested interest in the blame for these attacks being placed on Assad, popular opinion being turned against the Syrian government, and some type of condemnation or military action being taken against the Syrian army.

Second, the location of the attack is heavily suspect. The Ghouta region, where the attacks allegedly took place, is an area that is currently overrun with death squad organizations such as Jabhat al-Nusra and is largely seen to be under death squad control. It is also interesting to note that the attacks come at a time when this area has been under heavy military bombardment as of late, suggesting that the death squads themselves may have detonated chemical weapons as a move of desperation and coordination with NATO/Anglo-American interests seeking to justify military action against Syria.
