Escalating Syria's War

by Stephen Lendman

Dueling charges of chemical weapons use.

Syria is Washington's war. It was planned years ago. At issue is regime change. America tolerates no independent governments. It wants pro-Western puppet ones replacing them.

Death squad terror is policy. Washington upped the stakes. Headlines suggest chemical weapons use. Both sides trade accusations. Nothing's verified.

Mossad-connected DEBKAfile headlined "Witnesses report onset of chemical warfare in Syria," saying:

A "Reuters photographer said he (saw) people come into two Aleppo hospitals with breathing problems after the attack. They claimed people were suffocating on the streets."

"Western intelligence sources reckoned that for the Assad regime, Homs, the scene of fierce battles between government and rebel forces in recent days, is likely to be the first place where the Assad government resorts to chemical warfare."

"The allegation that the rebels have resorted to chemical warfare strongly points to an Assad ploy to go there himself and maintain it was only after the opposition went first."

"The emergence of dread unconventional weapons on the Syrian battlefield during the US president's stay in the region is bound to dominate his talks with its leaders. It may even have the effect of altering his schedule and affect his itinerary."

Make no mistake. Syrian forces used no chemical or other unconventional weapons. Suggesting it is false. Syrian officials categorically deny it.

On March 19, the Syrian Arab News Agency cited Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi. He accused countries arming death squad fighters.

He said terrorists fired a rocket with chemical substances from Da'el. It landed in al-Neirab on Khan al-Asal. It's southwest of Aleppo. It created a "dangerous escalation."

He holds Turkey and Qatar responsible. Two dozen people died. Over 100 hundred others were injured. Most are in critical condition.

"Whoever got involved and announced direct and public military support to the terrorists, whether he was an emir, a minister or a prime minister, must be held to account for the crime," he stressed.
