One of the reasons I got involved in Independent Media was the Sarin Gas attacks in Syria in 2013.
Seeing footage plastered all over the world of the bodies of dead children wrapped up in plastic and lined up under the trees was devastating to watch.
In London and Washington Cameron and Obama chanted like the terrible twins, “Assad must go!”
In 2017 they are both gone and we now have May and Trump yet again coming to hasty conclusions only a day after the chemical gas explosion occurred in rebel held Idlib.
If these attacks are anything like the attacks that occurred in 2013, anyone would immediately put the brakes on before coming to hasty conclusions and possibly highly inaccurate and destructive decisions that could result in a situation more devastating than the ones that Libya and Yemen now find themselves in.
What is never reported in western media, is that the gas attacks in 2013 were not carried out by Assad, but by the “rebels”themselves who had only the week before abducted women and children from surrounding villages and then gassed them to death in order to blame Assad.
If this false flag had succeeded the outcome would have been a UN Security Council resolution for a no fly zone and like Libya and Yemen, Syria would have undergone indiscriminate bombing raids on both the civilian and the military population as well as all infrastructure in Damascus and other cities and towns completely destroyed.
Thanks to the efforts of many people in Independent media, and especially the efforts of Sister Agnes Miriam who exposed the fact that the dead children had been abducted by ISIL, a no fly zone was not imposed and Assad not only remained, but was later re-elected by his own people in an internationally observed election.
For a full breakdown on that story see:
Trump did not appear on the White House lawn condemning the killing of women and children and…. “little babies” then.
These actions have been justified as “collateral damage,” because ISIL was using the civilian population as human shields and holding them captive in buildings.
CNN did however report on the killing of the civilians due to US military actions. As one example of many:
