Syria Threatens No One
Possible major false flag coming falsely blamed on Assad.
by Stephen Lendman
Media scoundrels specialize in distorting comments and meaning.
They're hyperbolic over Foreign Ministry spokesman Jihad Makdissi saying Syria would only use chemical weapons against external aggression.
His message was clear. Distortion, misinterpretation, and willful lying about it followed. Inflammatory headlines blared. More on what Makdissi meant below.
At the State Department's daily press briefing , Victoria Nuland commented on Syria's chemical weapons, saying:
Talk about using chemical weapons "is horrific and chilling." Syria "has a responsibility to the world (and) its own citizens to protect and safeguard those weapons."
Any "kind of loose talk just speaks to the kind of regime that we're talking about."
