Germany and Italy bail out on bombing Syria with no evidence


… from Press TV, Tehran

VT has been spreading around our evidence of US Coalition’s involvement in chemical weapon attacks in Syria using the jihadis to frame Assad

[ Editor’s Note: The worm might have finally turned this week on the pending Syrian attack due to a number of factors, some visible and some behind the scenes.

Germany, which was quick to jump on board the “bomb Syria” train early on without the slightest proof of Damascus involvement, has now been followed by Italy in backing out.

The Brits of course would never pass on a chance to relive the thrill of being an aggressive colonial power so Brits can enjoy their growing poverty better.

General Mattis’ comment below about concern for the deaths of innocent Syrians is of course a complete fraud, because he certainly is intimately aware of the US coalition’s chemical weapons assistance to the Syrian jihadis, something that is a serious felony requiring imprisonment for everyone involved.

Despite concern for innocent Syrians dying, Mattis had nothing to say about the murder of unarmed Gazan protesters by the IDF, when the IDF deserved to be bombed by the US military for crimes against humanity.

We do not know if Assad played his captured US-Coalition, chemical weapon officers’ card –meaning that if a US-Coalition missile assault occurred, he would make their photos, IDs and interrogation reports public. VT feels that the only feasible rationale for Assad not already exposing the evidence would be to use it as a threat to forestall a missile attack.

OPCW got into Syria at just the right time

While VT’s reporting on these captured people did get wide reader exposure, corporate media again would not touch it.

The OPCW people getting into Syria yesterday also changed the dynamic. If the US bombed, and then their report came out debunking the US “unverified” claims, the hoax would be exposed.

It would include the part media played, and how both military and civilian US Intel obviously knew it was a hoax but went along with it anyway. Guilty people tend to not want to be exposed, especially for aiding and abetting terrorism.

Congress would be in a tight spot not to investigate (even the usual make-believe investigation) how a “mistake” like this could have happened, as that would put on display who all the “influencers” were. It would be better to lose this current hoax battle and live to fight another day.

And last, the Republicans are back on their heels with their political fortunes. The rash of announced retirements from their ranks, many not wanting to go down to defeat in November was a political earthquake, along with the Democrats recently picking off some elected positions in states Trump won in November 2016.

Add to that the possibility that Congress might have Mueller sending a report requiring Trump impeachment proceedings, and you begin to see their concern for not wanting to get into a “cup runneth over” scenario.

As always, saving their own hides long term is more important that one more false flag attack, which can always be done later. As Gordon does so love to say, “Welcome to the way the world really works … Jim W. Dean ]

The US president has refused to act on his ostensibly earnest threats of a militant action against Syria in response to an alleged chemical attack there as major European powers say they will not be joining Washington.

Donald Trump recently issued multiple threats of an imminent military action against Syria over the alleged attack against the town of Douma in the countryside of the Syrian capital, Damascus.

Reporting on Thursday, Italy’s Agenzia Nova said Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni had noted in a series of Syria-related phone talks that Rome would not take part in military action against Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government.

Also on Thursday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel told reporters in Berlin that “Germany will not take part in military action.”

Trump’s threats likewise prompted warnings of retaliation from Moscow, with Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vassily Nebenzia saying he “cannot exclude” the possibility of direct Russo-American military confrontation in case the Arab country was attacked

AFP reported on Friday that Western powers were hesitant whether to launch a wholesale joint offensive in response to the alleged gas attack.

“No final decision has been made,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said after Nebenzia cautioned “the immediate priority is to avert the danger of war.”

Sanders added that Trump would confer with French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May.

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis also struck a cautious note, telling lawmakers that the need to “stop the murder of innocent people” had to be weighed up against the risk of things “escalating out of control.” He also said that Washington was committed to an on-again-off-again UN-brokered dialog between the Syrian government and opposition in Geneva.

Despite siding with Trump on the matter, Macron, meanwhile, said France would “in no way allow an escalation.”

Britain has also refused to act on Prime Minister Theresa May’s earlier threat that strikes could begin as early as Thursday.

Following an invitation from Damascus, inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) are expected to arrive in Syria over the weekend to investigate the reported attack.

The Syrian government surrendered its stockpiles of chemical weapons during a process monitored by the OPCW in 2014.

  1. Since the same rules of engagement do not apply to the US, I don’t expect to see trump, Macron or May, or any of their cronies stretching ropes as they should be. So instead, I hope to see US ships at the bottom of the ocean and US, UK and French jets shot out of the sky.

  2. Just like early April last year, the narrative makes no sense. Last year, Trump announced his government would no longer be pursuing the removal of Assad and then days later, they’re blaming him for using chemical weapons? That is full blown pig $h!t..The last thing Assad would do at that point would be anything that would change Trump’s mind. Now, only days after Trump announces the possible removal of US troops from Syria, they’re blaming Assad for using chemical weapons again? What kind of moron comes up with this garbage? And who in their right mind would believe it?
    It’s disgusting how the USG only speaks of human rights violations when in serves their warmongering agenda. “Ohhh the poor children!” None of these psychopaths give a stiff $h!t about children. All they care about is how they can exploit a situation to further their own goals. What about the millions of innocent people the USG has murdered/left homeless over the course of their bogus “war on terror”?? When should we expect bombs to drop on US cities for their innumerable crimes against humanity? I won’t hold my breath, because the rules the USG expect everyone else to follow obviously don’t apply the the USG, or their puppet master in Israhell.

    • Correction: “…the USG only speaks of human rights violations when ‘it’ serves their warmongering agenda.”

  3. Israel lovers Trump, Mattis and all their henchmen today, Bush, Cheney and the four star generals of 9/11 who obviously stood down and didn’t lift a finger to defend the country, all know, with a wink of the eye, they are untouchable. No authority will touch them with a ten foot pole. The Clinton gang included. Anyone of them could walk out to the nearest main street in DC and shoot the first person they see, and we would never hear a word about it again. Silence. When you reach a certain point in corruption there is no authority to convene a grand jury or arrest you or jail you or anything anymore. It is difficult to find words in polite English to describe this obscenity in the world today. The words of our Constitution are nothing but meaningless hot air without without a practical means to enforce those words. These are details we never learned in high school civics class.

    • Win, you are so right. With the Federal Judges corrupted, the House and Senate corrupted and the POTUS corrupted; where do you start to untangle this mess of vipers.

    • I would love to do the account books for the white helmets. I can’t imagine their budget comes close to the money’s the US & UK fork over annually. Wonder how much is kicked back to individuals and, who they are? The white helmets are a money laundering op … fer sure.
