Idlib gas attack – hang on a minute!

The Idlib Gas Attack - is it real and what would Assad gain?

The Idlib Gas Attack – is it real and what would Assad gain?

Before we all rush to identify Russia or ‘Assad’ as those responsible for the Idlib gas attack, let us just consider:

‘Idlib Gas Attack’ – background?

1 The US and UK armaments manufacturers need a Russian threat,

2 They are making billions of dollars from ‘wars and rumours of wars’,

3 They have strong financial links to US legislators, so nothing Russia does can be acceptable,

President Assad is beating the UK- and US- sponsored jihadists quite well conventionally,

5 President Assad has no reason to deploy chemical weapons and every reason not to,

6 Especially with a donor conference on Syria starting in Brussels today!

7 Who gains from this story of ‘Syrian nastiness’? That’s right, the rebels, who are losing the war,


8 Rebel chemical weapons manufacturing facilities from Saudi Arabia were found by journalists in liberated East Aleppo,

9 Russia have denied their planes were in the air at the time (the link also mentions the previous alleged Ghouta gas attack),

10 And the Syrian government have ‘categorically denied’ responsibility,

11 It is quite plausible that a rebel chemical weapons factory was hit and the stocks dispersed and certain that Western politicians would immediately rubbish such a claim,

12 Reports that shriek: ‘President Assad has gassed his own people‘ have no basis in actual verifiable fact,

13 Even that story started with the word ‘suspected’ and went on: ‘These videos and photos have not been independently verified’.  In other words, the headline was a lie and the story could easily be rebel propaganda – or Muslim ‘Taqiyya’ (disinformation),

Anybody there?

14 Those like the Coventry-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the UK’s Hamish de Bretton Gordon, wheeled out by the Guardian, are not there on the ground,

The 'White Helmets' are a UK Foreign Office propaganda tool

The ‘White Helmets’ are a UK Foreign Office propaganda tool

15 Indeed, nobody reputable is there.  Any Western journalist venturing into Idlib Province will be captured and held for ransom by the UK’s favoured jihadist cut-throats,

16 Despite jumping to blame Assad for this suspected Idlib gas attack, Theresa May says the UK will not be taking any military action. Thank God for that at least.  EU and US politicians were very quick with the condemnations – almost as if they knew it was coming,

17 The ‘White Helmets’, a jihadist propaganda group financed by the UK Foreign Office (yes, you read that right), have been quick to score points, and of course to be photographed tending alleged victims,

Who has protected Christians in Syria?

18 It is not the jidahist rebels, but President Assad who has protected religious minorities including Christians in Syria,

19 The UK-backed jihadists have torched churches and driven Christians from their homes and businesses,

20 President Assad is the only guarantor of stability in Syria.  It’s Assad or the deluge, said one expert,

21 In fact Bashar Al-Assad remaining in power is essential to the internal security of the UK,

22 Syrian Christian refugees are not even welcome in the UK. Nor can they even exist in the UN camps, which are run by Islamic terrorists,

23 The UK bears a heavy responsibility for destabilsing Syria, for the loss of life, ruined businesses, shattered buildings, fractured families and militants in Europe posing as refugees. That’s people like Lord Hague and UK diplomat Thomas Drew as well as the present crop.  But we could even now help to rebuild that nation:

Isaiah 26:2 Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.

Psalm 58:3  The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies. 

Proverbs 12:22  Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.

John 18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. 38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth?

Pray for the truth to come out and be recognised.  Pray for the knee-jerk posturing to stop.  Also pray for God to place grown-up men of God in positions of authority in our nation. Pray for peace in Syria.  Pray for the Christians of Syria in particular as they try to rebuild their homes and businesses.  And thank God for news outlets challenging the received establishment wisdom of the Main Stream Media!

    Steven, I respect the need to think critically and seriously, and many of your points are well made.

    The choice here is between two malevolent demons.

    However Assad clearly has form in using chlorine and other agents. Do you think the rebels are capable of making Sarin, if its use is confirmed. Do you really suspect the Guardian of shilling for the arms manufacturers?

    I think there’s a strong likelihood Assad is now so certain of rock solid Russian backing he or at least his senior commanders feel free to use CW. Widespread proliferation will undoubtedly follow impunity, and that may be another filip for arms manufacturers, but it would be extremely dangerous for the rest of us, Russia included, given recent events.

    Trump is in a better position to gain consensus with Putin on thorough investigation and action if he acts prudently and firmly, and dual action is essential.

    1. Stephen

      The Guardian, like all our mainstream media, are following the UK Government line. The UK are following the NATO line. And the NATO line is driven by the arms manufacturers. Even on the Opposition benches, it is forbidden to criticise NATO, support Russia or Assad or Iran, or to voice frankly any of the things in my article. The House of Commons is like a parallel reality.
      Assad’s ‘form’ in using chemical weapons is sadly from the same less than disinterested sources.
      And once again, Cui bono? Assad has nothing to gain from using chemical weapons. The timing is highly suspicious.
      I am just praying the US does nothing stupid, because Russia certainly will defend its ally.

    I for one am not very happy to have Trump in charge of more war, no matter what the reason. It’s much more worrying than the prospect of Theresa May invading Spain.

    This is a very interesting link while it is still available:
    At 8.50 , the defence secretary says the sort of thing about his American allies that defence secretaries say, while skilfully avoiding the vital question, as politicians do.
    But at 8.46, a former British ambassador to Syria lends a lot of credibility to what Stephen has written, basically why would President Assad have done it ? The BBC interviewer seems unhappy with his approach, but retired ambassadors are reliable people, very well-informed and no longer employed by the Foreign Office.

    1. Rox

      Since then, I haven’t heard anybody else query why Assad would have done it and/or whether he really did do it.

      1. Stephen

        I guess it would spoil the narrative. Look up US Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard. She is asking. And they don’t like it.

  3. JohnAllman.UK

    Why, do you think, did President Trump authorise the strike against an airfield in Syria that was on the news this morning?

    ” I for one am not very happy to have Trump in charge of more war, no matter what the reason.”

    Now even less. He seems to have got a real taste for it.

    Syria, Afghanistan, North Korea.
    Beautiful big bombs.

    Glad I don’t live in South Korea.
    I was worried about getting spare parts in future for my son’s Samsung washing machine, but fortunately it’s made in Poland. That’s the wonder of globalism.

    Unfortunately, Trump is liable to upset the Russians too ….
    He’s only just starting his four years.
