The Chemical Weapons Hoax

The Chemical Weapons Hoax

by Stephen Lendman

Greater US intervention in Syria looms. Manufactured threats facilitate doing so. Replacing Assad with puppet leadership is planned. Independent governments aren't tolerated. More on that below.

Fact: Washington bears full responsibility for Middle East/North Africa/Central Asian wars. Resource control is prioritized. So is imperial dominance to Russian and Chinese borders.

Fact: State terrorism is official US policy. Obama's waging multiple direct and proxy wars. He's doing so lawlessly. He's ravaging humanity in the process.

Washington, its allies, and proxies use chemical and other illegal weapons. Permanent wars reflect longstanding US policy. Americans are deceived and lied to. Truth is verboten.

Unchallenged global dominance is sought. Washington demands total subservience. What we say goes is policy. All independent governments are targeted.

Plans call for installing subservient puppet regimes. Direct intervention in Syria looms. War on Iran is planned. Lebanon is targeted. So are other countries.

America and Israel are imperial partners. Both countries wage war on Syria. They actively arm Al Qaeda and Al Nusra fighters. Both groups are designated terrorist organizations.

They're supplied chemical and other lethal weapons. They're trained in their use. Pentagon contractors and US special forces are involved. So are CIA operatives. Training occurs in Turkey and Jordan. Perhaps in Israel.

Israeli forces are mobilized near Syria's border. Libya 2.0 looms. Regional conflict is possible. So is WW III.

Fact: Alleging Syrian chemical weapons use replicates fabricated claims about Saddam's nonexistent WMDs. It's similar to false charges against all US enemies.

Big Lies launch wars. They're pretexts for planned aggression. Repetition gets people to believe them. Manipulative deception is standard practice. False flags are commonly used.

Fact: No verifiable evidence shows Syrian forces used chemical weapons against anyone at any time throughout the ongoing conflict. Claiming otherwise is willful, malicious lying.

Fact: Clear evidence proves so-called "rebels" used sarin and other chemical weapons multiple times.

UN investigators confirmed insurgent sarin use. They did so before equivocating on their initial statement. Waffling followed heavy Western pressure.

In March, credible evidence showed insurgents used chemical weapons. Home-made rockets fired contained CL 17.

It's a form of chlorine. It induces vomiting, fainting, suffocation and seizures. People nearby were affected.

Civilians are harmed most. So-called "rebels" target them. Assad loyalists are most vulnerable.

Fact: A no longer accessible January 29, 2013 UK Daily Mail report headlined "US 'backed plan to launch chemical weapon attack on Syria and blame it on Assad's regime,' " saying:

"Leaked emails have allegedly proved that the White House gave the green light to a chemical weapons attack in Syria that could be blamed on Assad's regime and in turn, spur international military action in the devastated country."

"A report released on Monday contains an email exchange between two senior officials at British-based contractor Britam Defence where a scheme 'approved by Washington' is outlined explaining that Qatar would fund rebel forces in Syria to use chemical weapons."

Fact: In late May, Turkish police arrested 12 suspected Al Nusra fighters. They were seized in southern Turkey. They were caught red-handed with a two gm cylinder of sarin nerve gas.

Initial Turkish media reports said four and a half pounds of sarin were seized. Handguns, grenades, bullets and various documents were found.

Fact: In early December, a Syrian insurgent video surfaced. It showed them testing chemical weapons on lab rabbits. Threats to use them against Assad loyalists followed.

Lab equipment and chemical containers were shown. Some bore the Turkish chemical company Tekkim name.

An Arabic text wall poster read, "The Almighty Wind Brigade (Kateebat A Reeh Al Sarsar)."

A man was shown mixing chemicals in a beaker. It emits gas. Rabbits in a glass box have convulsions, collapse and die. The audio states:

"You saw what happened. This will be your fate, you infidel Alawites. I swear by Allah to make you die like these rabbits, one minute after you inhale the gas."

Fact: Obama's waging war on humanity. He's doing so abroad and at home. He exceeds the worst of George Bush. He can't wait to kill again.

He threatens America with full-blown tyranny. It's already unsafe to live in. Everyone's watched all the time everywhere. Freedom is a four-letter word. Constitutional law no longer matters. Rule by diktat is policy.

Wars rage out-of-control. New ones loom. At stake is humanity's survival. It may not survive Obama's second term. Today is the most perilous time in world history. Thermonuclear war is possible.

America's military apparatus operates unchecked. It does so globally. Post-9/11 congressionally approved Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) threatens world peace.

War on terror lawlessness advances America's imperium. Unchallenged dominance matters most. Institutionalized lawlessness is policy. Bipartisan complicity enforces it.

On September 11, 2001, a state of emergency was declared. In part, it states:

"A national emergency exists by reason of the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center, New York, New York, and the Pentagon, and the continuing and immediate threat of further attacks on the United States."

"NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, I hereby declare that the national emergency has existed since September 11, 2001."

Under Obama, it continues unchecked. No emergency exists. Terrorist threats are claimed for political and imperial reasons. They heighten fear. They do so unjustifiably.

They chill freedom. They facilitate lawlessness. National security becomes a be all and end all. So does unchecked power.

Constitutional law can be suspended. Martial law can be declared. Presidents can usurp unchecked powers. In times of war, they're virtual dictators.

They have life and death powers over everyone. On March 16, 2012, Obama quietly issued EO 16303: National Defense Resources Preparedness.

It addresses defense policies and programs under the 1950 Defense Production Act (DPA), as amended. It was enacted in response to the Korean War. Waging it was lawless US aggression.

DPA was part of a broad civil defense and war mobilization effort. It contained sweeping unconstitutional powers. In March 2012, Obama reinstituted them.

Section 201 covers "Priorities and Allocations Authorities. (a) The authority of the President conferred by section 101 of the Act, 50 USC App. 2071, to require acceptance and priority performance of contracts or orders (other than contracts of employment) to promote the national defense over performance of any other contracts or orders, and to allocate materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the national defense, is delegated to the following agency heads:

(1) the Secretary of Agriculture with respect to food resources, food resource facilities, livestock resources, veterinary resources, plant health resources, and the domestic distribution of farm equipment and commercial fertilizer;

(2) the Secretary of Energy with respect to all forms of energy;

(3) the Secretary of Health and Human Services with respect to health resources;

(4) the Secretary of Transportation with respect to all forms of civil transportation;

(5) the Secretary of Defense with respect to water resources; and

(6) the Secretary of Commerce with respect to all other materials, services, and facilities, including construction materials."

Rule of law principles no longer matter. Diktat power rules. Government agencies enforce it. Alleged national defense priorities subvert all others.

At times of economic crisis and/or political scandals, diverting attention abroad is commonplace. Fear is heightened. Enemies are created. Public sentiment is manipulated. It's done to prioritize addressing them. Wars follow.

Rallying round the flag works. In 1917, propaganda turned pacifist Americans into raging German haters. In December 1941, isolationist Americans supported war on Japan.

Post-9/11, waging war on Afghanistan got wide backing. So did eliminating nonexistent Saddam and Gaddafi threats. Most Americans oppose war on Syria.

Polls show interesting findings. Results depend on questions asked. Wording is important.

When asked if Washington should intervene in Syria, Americans oppose doing so decisively. Only 26% approve. Another 64% oppose.

When asked whether to intervene in response to alleged Assad chemical weapons use, results change dramatically. Only 30% oppose. Another 58% express support.

Mind manipulation works. Waging wars require selling them. Doing so is prelude for what's planned. Obama's heading for greater Syrian intervention.

He's got much more than that in mind. It bears repeating. The road to Tehran runs through Damascus. All independent governments are targeted.

Vassal state replacements are sought. A permanent state of war exists. It rages against humanity. Good endings aren't likely.
