Syria: Sourcing The Chemical Weapon Attacks, And Preventing WWIII
Guest Post by Dr. Mark Chrisitian, Exec. Director, Global Faith Institute.
Raised in Cairo, Egypt, Dr. Christian was trained as an Imam and a doctor. He reveals the truth about the Islamic agenda in America and shares his knowledge of the darker side – the radical Islamic political movement – that’s never before been heard by Americans.
Were the chemical weapon attacks staged by a ‘double agent’ within the Syrian Army?
Does the official ‘chemical weapon attack’ story make sense to anyone? We’re not trying to deny that the weapons were launched by someone within the Syrian Army, the case has been made and the evidence is compelling. Clearly, the rebels didn’t launch the 2:30 am August 22, 2013 attack .
But…could this have been the work of an infiltrator within the Syrian Army’s 4th Armored Division? Could this mole have launched the Aug. 21 attack on the eastern Ghouta suburbs of the capital, Damascus? A captain in the unit who fired the chemical shells had his life threatened when he hesitated to fire the munitions, the threat being made by a regional commander within the Syrian army. Who is this regional commander?
Why do we seem insistent on going to war without asking these very important questions… which are among many that remain unanswered about the source of the chemical attacks?
We need to stop trying to belabor the point of whether or not this attack was launched by the Syrian Army. Clearly, U.S. intelligence has provided documentation of this fact, as mentioned in the Washington Post…
“U.S. spy agencies recorded each step in the alleged chemical attack, from the extensive preparations to the launching of rockets to the after-action assessments by Syrian officials. Those records and intercepts would become the core of the Obama administration’s evidentiary case linking the Syrian government to what one official called an “indiscriminate, inconceivable horror” — the use of outlawed toxins to kill nearly 1,500 civilians, including at least 426 children.”
The question that remains at this point is, if Syrian President Assad didn’t launch this attack…who did? Though there’s evidence that President Assad’s younger brother, Maher Assad, was in command of the unit accused of launching the attacks, this still doesn’t explain why or even provide a motive for the attack. So, we ask, who had a motive??
Various reports claim that immediately after the attacks the commander of the chemical weapons unit had several “frantic” calls with the Syrian Defense Minister, in which the Defense Minister was apparently trying to ascertain exactly what had happened. Why would the Defense minister have been surprised if the preparations had been taking place for 3 days, as the following statement from the Washington Post makes clear?
“The preparations, as described by U.S. intelligence analysts, continued from Aug. 18 until just after midnight on Aug. 21, when the projectiles were loaded into rocket launchers behind the government’s defensive lines. Then, at 2:30 a.m., a half-dozen densely populated neighborhoods were jolted awake by a series of explosions, followed by an oozing blanket of suffocating gas.”
So, are we to believe that the President of Syria would launch a massive chemical attack (as mentioned above) on civilians and not let his own Defense Minister in on that plan? There are those who speculate that the frantic calls were related to the Syrian Government’s surprise at the effectiveness of the attack. We have to ask, “Why would the casualty count engender frantic phone calls?” If one were to launch such massive chemical weapons ON PURPOSE and they were effective, that’s cause for a ‘Mission accomplished’ phone call, not a frantic one (we’re not advocating this, just examining motive). However, if one were to see that an UNAUTHORIZED chemical attack had been carried out by one’s own military (that he is supposed to be in charge of), that would indeed be cause for a ‘frantic’ phone call, to say the least.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney has said that the Syrian regime’s continued bombing of the affected area is a blatant attempt to keep UN inspectors out of the area and is thus another smoking gun showing that the regime is responsible for the attack. While that might be true, couldn’t it also be true that the regime was doing whatever it could to cover up a chemical attack that they didn’t intend to launch?
Another important question…does it seem suspicious to anyone that the Syrian regime would launch a chemical weapon attack 3 days after the U.N. inspection team arrived in Damascus? If Assad were going to use chemical weapons, why would he wait until the folks who would identify it are in your own backyard??
And does it seem suspicious that there’d be a reporter waiting on a rooftop 3 miles from the launch location, with a video camera, at 3AM to catch the missile in flight? This same reporter quickly posted these pictures online and commenced Skype interviews. Even in a war torn country, we’re wary to believe that reporters are pulling ‘stakeout’ duty on rooftops…just in case something happens.
If you’ve been following us for long, you’ve undoubtedly already had the opportunity to read our explanation of the 9/11/12 Benghazi attacks. If you’re not familiar with the truth behind the attacks and how the Syrian conflict has been in the works for quite some time, reading our article published in the Gateway Pundit will give you a better perspective on what you see playing out in the news today.
As we’ve mentioned multiple times, there are no ‘good guys and bad guys’ in this conflict. When dealing with Islam and its true adherents, there’s rarely a ‘good guy’ to be found. However, lacking a good guy doesn’t preclude us from seeking the truth, particularly if we’re attempting to use this evidence as justification to go to war.
Only a dreamer would believe that this will be a short operation, considering all the players involved. Hezbollah is fighting for its existence and Iran won’t let their progeny in Syria and Lebanon slip quietly into the night…they will protect what they see as theirs.
There’s only one path to anything resembling peace in this conflict. In an effort to avoid the beginning of World War 3, Russian President Vladimir Putin must convince his friend Basher el Assad to step down. Once he’s resigned, the United States and Russia can negotiate for the future of this ancient country. This solution must provide assurances of safety and sovereignty for all ethnic and religious groups, especially the Christians, Jews, Kurds, and nearly 2 million Alawite Shiite’s currently residing in Syria.
Finally, in the spirit of grace and mercy, extended even for those who seem to lack it themselves, we call on President Obama to provide a 24 hour period to allow President Assad a final opportunity to resign, before bombing begins. This stipulation needs to be included in the final resolution that Congress will vote on next week, a resolution that might otherwise be the first domino tipped in the beginning of World War 3.
