Chemical Weapons Use In Syria: More Propaganda?
by Brandon Turbeville
Apr 14, 2014
More reports of the use of chemical weapons inside Syria have come to light over the weekend, this time in the rural village of Kfar Zeita.
The use of chemical weapons is not really in question since both sides of the conflict – the Syrian government and the death squad forces – are reporting their use. However, both sides are also blaming each other for the deployment of the poison gas.
The chemical attack took place in Kfar Zeita, a rural village about 125 miles north of Damascus. It is important to note that Kfar Zeita was held by the death squads at the time of the attack.
Videos posted by death squad organizations show “pale-faced men, women and children gasping for breath at a field hospital.”
Likewise, the openly pro-death squad Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, made up of one man in Britain, claimed that “the gas attack happened during air raids that left heavy smoke over the area. It reported that people suffered from suffocation and breathing problems after the attack, but gave no further details.”
Syrian state media places the blame on the al-Qaeda affiliated Jobhat al-Nusra Front. Specifically, the Syrian media claims that the toxin was chlorine gas. These outlets also state that at least two people had been killed and nearly 100 injured.
NPR reports that “An amateur video posted online by opposition activists showed a hospital room in Kfar Zeita that was packed with men and children, some of whom breathing through oxygen masks. On one bed, the video showed six children, some appearing to have difficulty breathing while others cried.”
Although evidence concerning who was responsible for the deployment of poisonous gas is still coming to light, the fact is that the most obvious culprit is the death squads. After all, such has been the case with every chemical weapons attack that has occurred in Syria since the beginning of the conflict.
Indeed, every day that goes by sees Assad gain more ground in his fight against the Western-backed terrorists who have been running rampant across the country. It would be absolute insanity to deploy chemical weapons after gaining the upper hand, thus jeopardizing your approaching victory by placing yourself as a potential direct military target of the West and its insane R2P (Responsibility to Protect) philosophy. Even so, why waste chemical weapons in a small rural village?
Most important is the fact that the death squads have been responsible for several chemical attacks. Indeed, as stated above, they have been responsible for every chemical attack which has taken place inside the country.
Regardless, only time will tell if the West will use this latest tragedy as an opportunity to campaign against the Syrian government yet again or if the chemical weapons lie has run its course with Western audiences.
