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."
