(Note: The US Secretary of State makes a veiled threat to Russia that if they don’t stop supporting the Syrian government which they have a treaty of self-defense with…The US will attack Russia too leading to WWIII.
We have no business fighting the legitimate government of Syria. The only reason that the US government is pushing WWIII is to fight another Middle East War for Israeli and to try to save the Petro-Dollar at the same time.)
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has called on Russia to rethink its alliance with the government of Bashar al-Assad following an alleged chemical attack in northwestern Syria.
Tillerson made the remarks on Wednesday, a day after the suspected assault targeted the town of Khan Shaykhun in Idlib, leaving more than 70 people, including children, dead and dozens more injured.
The foreign-sponsored militants active in the area as well as US officials blamed the attack on the Syrian military whereas Damascus rejected the allegation, insisting it “has never used them [chemical weapons], anytime, anywhere, and will not do so in the future.”
The United States and its allies have repeatedly used chemical weapons as a pretext to pressure the Syrian government. Damascus volunteered to destroy its chemical stockpile in 2014 following a poisonous attack outside the capital.
The allegations of chemical arms use are still made against Syria even as the dismantling of the country’s entire stockpile of chemical weapons as well as relevant production facilities was supervised by the UN.
Foreign-backed militants have repeatedly used chemical weapons against Syrian troops, some of which have been verified by UN officials, but the attacks have often been ignored by Western governments.
