Another gas attack in Syria, this time in the northern city of Aleppo has occurred. This latest attack has the Syrian government and opposing forces pointing the finger at each other as the culprit. One thing is for sure, some type of bombing has taken place in neighborhoods inside of Aleppo that have impacted civilians. Resulting in 50 injuries including children.

Back in September, although rarely reported on by the mainstream media, the Trump administration made public claims that there could possibly be a false flag gas attack in Syria. At the time it was thought that such an attack would take place in the Idlib province. There were a couple of reasons the Trump administration made the public claim.

On August 27, 2018 reports began to surface that Syrian rebels were planning a fake false flag chemical attack. Back then I remember thinking that it was strange that a false flag chemical attack was being talked about by any government. Especially before the said attack takes place. Governments usually label false flag attacks as conspiracies cooked up by conspiracy theorists.

In one publication by news.com.au, titled “Whats Behind Vladimir Putin’s Warning Of A False Flag Chemical Attack In Syria? It was noted that Putin was making claims of a false flag chemical attack would be carried out by Syrian rebels. On that same day, August 27, 2018, The Jerusalem Post published an article titled “False Flags: War Of Words Over Chemical Weapon Attack In Idlib” In that article Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah claimed “All evidence suggests preparation are underway for a new chemical scenario in Idlib.”

The reason false flag chemical attacks were being warned of that being the “evidence” Nasrallah spoke of comes in the form of reports that “Foreign specialists” were in Syria and their mission could possibly be to stage a chemical attack. Tweeting specifies about the possible attack was the Russian Embassy in London.

On the week prior to August 27, National Security Advisor John Bolton, while in Jerusalem, said that there was concern that Assad “may use chemical weapons again.” Bolton did not mince words or leave any room for doubt as to how the Trump administration would respond to a chemical attack. Bolton stated “if the Syrian regime uses chemical weapons we will respond very strongly and they really ought to think about this a long time.”

By September 3, 2018, the finger pointing had begun. Starting with the cancellation of a Labor Day golf outing President had scheduled. While the press pool had been waiting for an hour in the presidential motorcade to go to the outing, they were sent away shortly after 10:30am EST. By 4:20 President Trump tweeted “President Bashar al-Assad of Syria must not recklessly attack Idlib Province.” He went on to name Russia and Iran as part of any attack carried out by Assad. An hour later Nikki Haley added that, All eyes on the actions of Assad, Russia, and Iran in Idlib.”

 

This is just the backstory of the lead up to the bombings over the weekend in Syria. Part 2 of this article will describe the role each government plays in the Syrian conflict. Much of what you hear in our media is the opposite of what is true. It is no secret as to who backs the “rebels” in Syria. All you have to do is look back to the days of the Obama administration. Even more thought provoking is the “Stop Arming Terrorist Act” introduced by Tulsi Gabbard after traveling to Syria. She introduced the bill to Congress after learning that the Obama Administration was arming ISIS in Syria in order to institute regime change.
