A report just released by state-run media says Russian President Vladimir Putin has received credible information additional chemical ‘attack’ similar to a gruesome incident last week will be carried out to, once again, frame the Syrian government — and it, too, will be a false flag.

In a joint press conference with Italian President Sergio Mattarella in Moscow, Putin, quoted by RT, stated,

“We have reports from multiple sources that false flags like this one – and I cannot call it otherwise – are being prepared in other parts of Syria, including the southern suburbs of Damascus. They plan to plant some chemical there and accuse the Syrian government of an attack.”


As many as 86 people succumbed to a noxious chemical in Khan Sheikhoun, in Syria’s Idlib Governate, early last week; but before an independent investigation could be performed or Congressional approval obtained, President Donald Trump ordered 59 Tomahawk missiles launched at a Syrian air base in retaliation.

Crucial unanswered questions — many of which an independent investigation might have — came from critics and world leaders, rightly doubting why, immediately after learning the U.S. had resigned to the current Syrian regime, would Assad carry out an atrocity veritably guaranteed to undermine such progress.

So glaring is that dearth of logic — despite it being the catalyst for the U.S. to attack a sovereign nation not posing any national security threat — analysts and experts harkened back to the George W. Bush regime’s fictitious Weapons of Mass Destruction and the feckless push for war with Iraq.

Manufactured terror, Putin reminds, frequently serves as the impetus for the United States to embroil itself in other nations’ affairs — usually with calamitous results:

“President Mattarella and I discussed it, and I told him that this reminds me strongly of the events in 2003, when the US representatives demonstrated at the UN Security Council session the presumed chemical weapons found in Iraq. The military campaign was subsequently launched in Iraq and it ended with the devastation of the country, the growth of the terrorist threat and the appearance of Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS] on the world stage.”

As was the case during the buildup to the Iraq War, public divide over the fast-established official account crucifying Assad as indisputably culpable pinned those urging restraint as inhumane and callous in the face of atrocity — ironically deeming those who would prefer an end to all the killing as monsters … for not advocating further killing.

In fact, this isn’t the first dubious chemical gassing pinned on Assad by the U.S. In 2013, hundreds perished in Ghouta, Syria — just before former President Obama unsuccessfully requested the same bombing Trump just permitted. Notably, that attack has been all-but completely disputed and credibly proven to have had nothing to do with the Syrian government.

This unequivocal condemnation of the Syrian leader plastered American corporate media headlines for days, nearly sans refutation, as Russia — backing government forces to eradicate terrorist groups, including those trained and funded by the U.S. — and Iran loudly reiterated the need for an investigation before a simmering proxy war explodes should American military aggression continue.

Progressively louder demands from Russia, Syria and their allies for the Trump administration to halt this provocation have thus far been laughed off or dismissed as guilty bluster.

Now that Vladimir Putin, himself, warns a second, similarly fabricated attack would be a convenient means for the U.S. to present ‘validation’ Assad gassed his own people — fertilizer for the American War Machine to plant false humanitarian goals in pro-bombing propaganda — any incident mimicking the first should be scrutinized thoroughly.

    My information came from two former officers of the DIA and CIA. I am not the one to contact the UN. This whole affair is too much like previous baseless accusations and false flags used by the neocons to promote more war in the Middle East.

    The UN said the same thing in 2013 when Obama was at the helm, but provided no proof. Trump has so many “enemies” that it is virtually impossible to pull off this kind of false flag without being called out. And if you listen to the far, far left, then the White Hats are the ones who are orchestrating this….. I’m sticking with the simplest answer until there is evidence to the contrary.

    The Congressional Approval argument for these types of missions is valid…..however it’s evident that in the modern era it is unrealistic to get Congressional Approval when there is a need to act fast and maintain an element of surprise.

      I can’t agree. Before launching missiles, the evidence for the action should be there. MIT just put out a report with proof that Assad did not launch the weapons; the article below would seem to indicate the same (I am anything but a weapons or military expert). But I do know that facts and reason come before any action, unless we want an even more dangerous world.

        I’m not questioning the possibility of false flag attack. It actually makes sense, but that’s no reason to believe one thing over another.
        I’m saying that if the media, globalists and journalists hate trump as much as they portray, they have a golden opportunity to have him impeached on war crimes. I’m tired of their nonsense…they can put up or shut up. The UN can make its case, as can the EU and everyone else with an ax to grind. Also, I just can’t relay on anything published in RT.
