Assad Accused Of Using Nerve Agents As Death Toll From Douma Rises


The Independent UK: The nerve agent sarin may have been used in the Syrian government’s alleged ‘chemical weapons attack’ on the town of Douma, it has been claimed.

The pro-opposition Ghouta Media Centre alleged that a helicopter had dropped a barrel bomb containing sarin, and another organisation claimed that a hospital had been hit by a chlorine bomb.

With images of women and children foaming from the mouth and nose circulating on social media, the death toll from Saturday evening’s attack on the town was said to have risen to at least 49, with some observers saying more than 150 people have been killed.

As the alleged atrocity further increased tensions between RussiaBashar al-Assad and the West, Donald Trump weighed in with a series of furious tweets. more …

Opinion: The attack happened one year to the day when President Trump sent a cruise missile barrage into a government air base in Homs over the use of chemical weapons. And just days after President Trump announced a complete withdrawal of US troops.

So then why would Assad not wait till he has the place to himself and his patron Vladimir Putin?

What is particularly dangerous in all this is the location of Douma in relation to Damascus …

Our post on March 15 (here) we said this:

“Since Isaiah made no clear statement as to who will cause the attack, and that Israel will take heavy casualties, could be an indication of another actor or terror nation whose primary objective is to destroy the Jewish state.

Following that theory, the only nation that makes no secret of its intentions and most wants an established military presence in Syria with which to achieve its goal of Islamic caliphate, is none other than Iran.”

The world watches this morning to see what response President Trump will use after his tweet threatening action:

Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price…
