    The OPCW confirmed that no traces of chemical weapons were found during the fact-finding mission in Douma.

    "Last week, the fact-finding mission of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) visited a site in the Damascus suburb of Douma to collect samples in connection with the alleged April 7 chemical attack.

    Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the Russian General Staff Col. Gen. Sergey Rudskoy has announced that the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) had confirmed that there were no chemical weapons found at the Barzeh research center in Damascus despite the US officials’ claims.

    The ministry further noted that thousands of people could have died if there was any chemical weapon on the sites that were attacked by the US-led coalition."

    It appears the ruling class wants war in Syria. It is likely all about oil and removing a secular dictator the USA, Saudis and Israelis dislike.

    I wonder if they will succeed in getting their war, which might lead to WWIII.

    Unfortunately, the source for the news is Sputnik and Russia, so we are in a "he said, she said" situation.

    Unless we have an unbiased UN panel with both US, Russian, Chinese, scientists releasing findings etc. things are going to get dicey. I have a feeling, the US and NATO allies will not allow that to happen this time.

    No information will be better for their case than true information.

    So the Russians, Chinese, Syrians, Iranians etc. will be on their own, and looking like any information they release will be biased.


    I have a feeling you might be right unless this civil war in the Deep State here in the US can be straightened out soon. Unless that happens, the administration appears to have to follow a policy of appeasement to the military-industrial war making intelligence apparatus.

    I'm not even sure if things would change if they had complete control otherwise.

    The thing is this sort of thing has been played out several times now. Recall how Obama and most of the West claimed Russian supported rebels shot down the Malaysian plane, in Ukraine. Much like Trump's two missile attacks on Syria, Obama and West immediately blamed Russian rebels without ever providing documented proof. Obama placed sanctions on Russia, and act of war.

    When a gas attack occurred under Obama, in Syria, to his credit he did not escalate the situation by bombing. For this he was mercilessly criticized by much of the media, due to his 'red line' comment. It is clear to me that most of the MSM has become the mouthpiece for the Deep State and the MIC.

    And at the same time the Russians fabricated false "evidence" to "prove" it wasn't them.
