Yes actually it was an airstrike that hit a weapons depot where rebels have been storing chemical agents. Oddly enough, there was reports of a chemical attack by ISIS last week around Mosul area, it was ignored and dismissed as nothing. Iraqi forces have reported several times about chemical agents deployed by the terrorists. After Aleppo liberation, rebel munitions stores and shell frags were found with chemical agents as well.

You will hear the narrative in the Western news blame Assad outright for a day or two. After the UN meeting, the media will get quiet. The news has to report propaganda until the actual players deal with the truth for political reasons. Then it just changes to an unrelated story once actual investigators show up on the ground and determine the facts in reports and documents that will never see time on a North American news tv.

I just remembered that the tv news said "the chemical attack came AFTER heavy shelling of the area by assad and russian forces. So your probably right.

I don't get the whole chemical weapon idea,I'm likely wrong but is it likely to kill more people outside the blast zone than a conventional explosion? That's a really grim thing to do to anyone downwind.

I dont' think the EU will get out of this mess they created without a few bombings in Europe in the coming 10-15 days.

As usual there are some things that don't make sense.

Jumping to conclusions; something is not adding up in Idlib chemical weapons attack


BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:47 P.M.) – At least 58 people were killed in a horrific gas attack in the Idlib Governorate this morning. However, even before investigations could be conducted and for evidence to emerge, Federica Mogherini, the Italian politician High Representative of the European Union (EU) for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, condemned the Syrian government stating that the “Assad regime bears responsibility for ‘awful’ Syria ‘chemical’ attack.”

The immediate accusation from a high ranking EU official serves a dangerous precedent where public outcry can be made even before the truth surrounding the tragedy can emerge

Israeli President, Benjamin Netanyahu, joined in on the condemnation, as did Amnesty International.


How can you immediately accuse someone of an act after just hearing about it?


Merely hours after the alleged chemical weapons attack in Khan Sheikhun, supposedly by the Syrian government, holes are beginning to emerge from opposition sources, discrediting the Al-Qaeda affiliated White Helmets claims.

For one, seen in the above picture, the White Helmets are handling the corpses of people without sufficient safety gear, most particularly with the masks mostly used , as well as no gloves. Although this may seem insignificant, understanding the nature of sarin gas that the opposition claim was used, only opens questions.

Within seconds of exposure to sarin, the affects of the gas begins to target the muscle and nervous system. There is an almost immediate release of the bowels and the bladder, and vomiting is induced. When sarin is used in a concentrated area, it has the likelihood of killing thousands of people. Yet, such a dangerous gas, and the White Helmets are treating bodies with little concern to their exposed skin. This has to raise questions.



Most telling however, is that most recent report shows that the government does not deny striking Khan Sheikhun. Al-Masdar’s Yusha Yuseef was informed by the Syrian Army that the air force targeted a missile factory in Khan Sheikoun, using Russian-manufactured Su-22 fighter jet to carry out the attack. Most importantly, the Su-22’s bombs are unique and cannot be filled with any chemical substances, which is different than bombs dropped from attack helicopters. Yuseef was then told that the Syrian Air Force did not know there were any chemical substances inside the missile factory in Khan Sheikhoun. It remains to be known whether there actually were chemicals in the missile factory targeted by the airstrikes, or whether the terrorist forces used gas on the kidnapped civilians from the pro-government towns and brought them in the lorry trucks to the site of the airstrikes. Whether they were gassed by the militant forces, or the airstrikes caused a chemical weapon factory to explode, the gruesome deaths of children, seen foaming in the mouth because of the gas, lays in the hands of the terrorists.

The Russians did not attack WITH chemical weapons

They bombed a rebel ammunition dump where nerve agents were being manufactured.

So you are practicing a double standard blaming Russia but apparently accepting as okay the fact that rebels were manufacturing nerve gas to use against populations in attacks on Government areas.

Start by blaming the right people.

And this is the problem that we find ourselves in. Who do we believe? What truth do you believe?

It's war so it's going to be ugly. Both sides are fighting and willing to do whatever they think needs to be done.
You have to look at every picture with an eye for the truth. Otherwise nothing is going to change, we will just continue fighting.

I don't know how the "little people" find the truth but we have to keep looking!

Exactly. I've been having that same dilemma for a while now. Not sure who to believe. Perhaps there's truth and lies mixed together at all sources.

Well we have to ask: "In what possible way could the Syrian forces gain from deploying chemical weapons? Who gains anything by this chemical attack?"

Lets not forget the truth that the White Helmets, who are the ones who give that man in Britain who claims to be The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights the bulk of his reports, are themselves guilty multiple times of fabricating outright scenes of a movie and then declaring ACTION! for the cameras.

I am surprised the usual party did not blame Assad for attacking his own soldiers when this went down in Aleppo The Russians had to pull teeth just to get the OPCW to investigate.

White Helmets - The Mask of Terror is an expose by ANNA News agency into the truth behind this white helmets myth of a neutral agency tasked with helping civilians. The reality is a bit more complicated, with insiders confessing they were told they had to be actors in order to be paid from foreign sponsors and even having to work alongside the same men who beheaded a Syrian child last year. Truly disturbing material.


Here is what I believe went down. When Tillerson said the people will decide Assad's future last week, the vested interests of this conflict just could not accept it. So these chemical agents may have been placed their intentionally by the rebels and baited an airstrike so that they can point their fingers and say "see! He is the bad guy! Please commit to his ouster!"

Of course this will all get settled quietly by next week, and the topic will go back to more Tabloid headlines about Trump, or his wife's clothes, or whatever.

These are some of the latest statements being reported. Obviously I have to use a foreign source.


UN resolutions being drafted by US/UK/France and Russia

The deputy envoy stressed that Moscow supports the calls voiced by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres for a full and objective probe of the alleged chemical attack.

Russia considers the use of chemical weapons by any of the warring parties in Syria “unacceptable,” he said, adding that the perpetrators must be held responsible.

"We should put an end to the useless practice of carrying out investigations remotely," Safronkov said, adding that experts must travel to Khan Sheikhoun and use all available methods in their inquiry, instead of relying on “unverifiable” data from the internet.
Earlier the council was briefed by Kim Won-soo, the UN high representative for disarmament affairs, who acknowledged that the organization so far has no independent evidence on the suspected chemical weapons attack ... Kim reported that all chemical weapons declared by the Syrian government had been removed and destroyed.

Former Pentagon official Michael Maloof said the UN needs to take the initiative in its hands to prevent the “effort to try and ratchet things up” in Syria over the alleged chemical attack.

“What the UN needs to do… [is to] call in a fact finding team, get there on the ground and look at it for themselves. I was hoping that Russia could invite the US to bring in officials to jointly do such an examination… under the UN's auspices,” he said.

“Immediately, the notion is to blame not only Russia, but, more importantly, Syria,” Maloof said, adding that “there’s some reason to believe that a storehouse of chemical weapons was hit. Idlib province is known for housing opposition members and they’re known to have sarin capability production and they’ve also received it in from Turkey, which is not very far away.”

I read that if an air strike had hit a weapons dump containing Sarin, it would of destroyed it, rather than released it.
Just thought i would ask whether this is possible.


Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, a former commanding officer of the British Armed Forces Joint Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear (CBRN) Regiment, said it was "pretty fanciful". "Axiomatically, if you blow up Sarin, you destroy it," he told the BBC. "It's very clear it's a Sarin attack," he added. "The view that it's an al-Qaeda or rebel stockpile of Sarin that's been blown up in an explosion, I think is completely unsustainable and completely untrue."

Trump actually knows the truth and if he has any ballons he will make some kind of no fly zone over Id-lib and other areas and if your Russian jets or Assad Jets continue this sh*t they should be Swatted out of the Sky it has gone on far to long now The rebels with a Chemical factory what a total crock.
