SYRIAN CRISIS: Western Military Intervention Compromised After White Helmets ‘Sarin’ Scam
SYRIAN CRISIS: Western Military Intervention Compromised After White Helmets ‘Sarin’ Scam BY
Over the last week the US ordered ‘sweeping’ new sanctions on Syria following the still as of yet unsubstantiated sarin chemical attack out of Idlib. While the political fallout after the highly questionable WMD allegations continues, there are details concerning NATO weaponry making their way into the hands of terrorists in Syria, while ISIS reportedly ‘apologized‘ to Israel for opening fire on IDF soldiers in Golan Heights on at least one occasion.
Sanctions on Syria: Without Clear Evidence
This past week, the US Treasury’s Steve Mnuchin, a former Goldman Sachs partner and ex-Soros Fund Management employee announced sweeping new sanctions set to take effect on Syria following allegations over a chemical weapons attack said to have taken place in early April in the province of Idlib.
The LA Times reported the escalation over growing ‘suspicion’ that the Syrian government has somehow not complied with a chemical weapons agreement of 2015:
“A senior administration official said the 271 people cited included chemists and other scientists or researchers who have worked for the agency since at least 2012.
The sanctions mean that those individuals named may not have business dealings with U.S. companies or persons, and any assets they might have in the United States would be frozen. The move also complicates travel for some.”
The Times adds that in January, the Trump administration enacted sanctions on “18 senior Syrian government officials and five branches of the Syrian military,” over allegations concerning three separate chlorine gas attacks throughout 2014 and 2015.
In 2014, the Syria handed over 1,300 tonnes of chemical arms to the UN and Organisation for the Prohibition and Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to be destroyed and has denied using sarin or any chemical weapons during the ongoing Syrian conflict.
