@JohnSimpsonNews The levels of professional ignorance you & MSM maintain has led to the deaths of millions. Rather than push your own comfort zone by asking questions in a suit, you choose to wear a burka to tell us how bad the Taliban is, they are barbaric but not as much as our government.
@JohnSimpsonNews US PNAC War Policy being executed. There are no coincidences only death.

General Wes Clark speaking about US military plan in 2001, stated in an interview 2007.
"USA will attack Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan & Iran.

Here, a @UKLabour MP praises a notorious conspiracist who says meeting Bashar al-#Assad was her "proudest" moment.

She's justified incendiary weapons & barrel bombs on civilian targets; suggested 9/11 was a false flag; Zionists rule #France & the #CharlieHebdo attack was fake.
@UKLabour Extraordinary.

@UU_University invited notorious conspiracist Vanessa Beeley to lecture on “War Reporting.”

Her claims were so outlandish, the students walked out & boycotted the course, calling it “a propaganda camp.”…

(PS - Look at the pictured slide)
@UKLabour @UU_University #pt: Among Beeley’s claims at @UU_University:

- @hrw is run by a secret “Jewish organization called the #Washington elite.”

- #Russia only promotes international peace

- #Syria’s opposition "tear pregnant women in half, betw'n cats”

- All media (e.g. @guardian) are govt tools

U.K Govt bombed #Syria based on "alleged" chemical attack in #Douma - now #OPCW has almost ruled out presence of "chemicals" (except traces of "chlorine" elements) at scene of alleged attack in #EasternGhouta. Does May stand trial for violation of intl law? Media - tumbleweed?
9th April: Statement by Ambassador Karen Pierce, UK Permanent Representative to the UN, at Security Council session on the use of chemical weapons by Syria in Douma. ⬇️⬇️RUSH TO JUDGEMENT.
According to its own "Chemical Weapons in Syria" paper - UK Govt conceded that #Syria had destroyed all declared chemicals, overseen by #OPCW & "UK contributed to the process"

... "no chemical attack in #Douma" ...? ... according to OPCW certainly no "sarin" ... so TRUMP, MAY and MACRON (always name the responsible politicians) bombed #Syria for what?
Syria has for a while now the potential to become the start of a much wider conflict - a "world war" - but for some reason these "world leaders" decided that bombing Syria with Russian troops on the ground was "worth it" - now the reason they gave turns out to have been a FAKE.
... so what does "chlorine" mean? ... well ... unless you pump chlorine gas into closed spaces without escape it can be lethal ... but the "bombs" that Syria's "rebels" reported came from above - hit roofs, beds - and in this case one should be able to walk away from it unharmed.

Absolutely superb work by @nytimes, @bellingcat & @ForensicArchi - exposing clear evidence that #Assad regime was responsible for the April 7 chemical attack in #Douma.

The munition used matched many previous CW attacks.

Watch this.
Bookmark it.…
NEW - @OPCW report confirms that #Chlorine was found at the site of the April 7 attack in #Douma, aligning closely with previous investigations.

Note: #Russia said no chemicals were used & it was a false flag attack (mutually contradictory, but hey...)…
@OPCW Remember that “rebel chemical weapons factory” in #Douma that pro-#Assad people trumpeted on about?

The @OPCW inspected it and found zero evidence of any chemical weapons production or toxic chemicals.

More #Russia disinformation rubbished.

Once again the NYT published a blatant propaganda piece using a lot of details found by independent investigators and tries to reverse the findings in a sometimes self-contradicting way.
DISMISS: Of course, NYT M.Browne neither mentions any of the witness accounts nor that #Douma has already "fallen". Most of the Jaish al Islam activists already left or jumped into busses the next day.
DISTORT: They show us rising chlorine and explain later why chlorine do not rise.

New thread on interesting SAA & Republican Guard facts/anecdotes I’m finding for an upcoming report. Mostly stuff from earlier in the war.
Video shows #Chechen foreign fighters in Ballermoun, Aleppo on March 17, 2014

On 3/21 rebels here killed Maj General Samea Abbas, head of the 102nd Regiment RG. On 3/25 they killed Brig General Qasi Mohammad, commander of the 415th Battalion of the 102nd.
Seems the 415th Battalion was destroyed in this battle as I can’t find any credible references to it after Qasi’s death. 102nd remained in #Aleppo until late 2017 (when deployment reports end).

The new @OPCW report on #Saraqib is the usual quackery: Talking of 2 Chlorine cylinders (not even "bombs") attack despite AGAIN not having been there and not having chain of custody.…
"open-source information"
As usual, friendly neighborhood crypto-jihadis of @SyriaCivilDef & @sams_usa provided contact to "interviewees". We remember how that panned out in #Douma...

#ASSAD TO #KATHIMERINI: “How come the supposed chemical weapons used in #Douma kill only women and children and not militants?”
#ASSAD TO #KATHIMERINI: “The chemical weapons story is a farce, a very primitive play”.
#ASSAD TO #KATHIMERINI: “Those who claimed there was a chemical attack have to prove there was one”.

For the 2nd time after the #Douma nonsense Eliot Higgins plays dumb to appear smart. Let's see how the psychological in depth analysis applies:
Either they recreated it or the creation was some kind of hell canon theme variation or they used some old and previously dropped modifications. In fact no image is known of an helicopter dropping yellow cylinders and only very few presented cylinders show those modifications.
You find hardly more than maybe 5 images of similar modification. Khan-al-Assal, Aleppo, Kallaseh. SAMS provided an image from Latamneh showing a cylinder with scratches maybe caused by such modifications. However, the wheels appeared in 2018 but maybe existed earlier.

In the thread below I critically analyse Robert Fisk's article for the independent in which he fails to find any evidence for a chemical attack in #Douma.

See thread below. 👇…
Firstly, the headline itself uses the word "doubt" and ultimately this appears to be the purpose of the article - to give the pretence of impartiality while repeatedly posing seemingly innocent questions which feed the conspiracy theorists.
Fisk says he interviews one single doctor in Douma who contradicts the official Russian and Syrian narrative that the videos were faked. Fisk does not point this out.

MSM #FakeNews ALERT: We have just received word that the #BBC is about to run a hit-piece on alleged "Twitter Influencers" including @VanessaBeeley and 21WIRE for exposing the White Helmets for the UK gov-backed propaganda outfit that they truly are...
Below are a list of the slanted defamatory questions from #BBC's internet expert @mwendling sent to @VanessaBeeley for Wendling's defamatory hit-piece due out tomorrow on the #BBC...
1 - "Dear Ms Beeley – Do you believe that the alleged chemical attack in Douma was staged, a “false flag” event, or was faked?"

1/ I've collated, inspected, taken earliest observed time of #Douma hospital photos and videos. All come from two jihadists; nearly all from a single room during probably less than half hour with no casualties and no more than 30 (mostly children/babies). Jihadi flash mob?
2/ most hospital photos/videos uploaded between 23:27D(amascus) and 2:32D. Two photos from earlier in the day(17:00D), a short video of one boy on puffer(22:30D). One trailer video from next morning. 6 videos totaling only 2:23 minutes; ~20 distinct photos (excl dupes,repeats)
3/ All or nearly all hospital photos & videos first uploaded by Fadi Abdullah/Douma Revolution and/or Yaser al-Doumani. Same as massacre photos and videos uploaded before next daybreak. Timing relative to massacre photos/videos interesting.

.@StateDept: There is no doubt about #Assad regime's pattern of chemical weapons. Since 2014, the OPCW assigned responsibility to Assad for multiple sarin & chlorine attacks. We've noticed there’s an awful lot of Russian #Propaganda out there, so we thought we’d offer some facts:
FACT: The #Syrian regime used chemical weapons near #Douma on April 7, killed at least 45 people and sickening hundreds more. Our information is consistent and corroborated by multiple sources, from military intelligence to social media users, NGOs to international organizations.
FACT: The joint U.S.-UK-France strikes were a justified, legitimate and proportionate response to the #Syria government's continued use of chemical weapons on its own people.

With no #Douma investigation, no UN mandate, and in clear breach of international law, US UK France launch attack against a sovereign nation that hasn't attacked them, in 'retaliation' for an alleged event the circumstances of which are very far from clear…
No surprise perhaps as to the timing of US UK France attacks, just hours before the scheduled start of @OPCW investigations which potentially very quickly could have established whether a chemical attack as claimed in #Douma did, or did not, take place
Note how headlines repeat US UK France claims of #Syria chemical weapons sites as if fact…
ignoring that @OPCW declared all Syria CW destroyed in 2016, and that US UK France have since had the right to ask OPCW to inspect these sites…

"A Bulgarian man has been charged in the United States with exporting aircraft parts to #Syria in violation of a U.S. embargo, the U.S. Justice Department said on Wednesday."…
Syrian state TV airs Wednesday's meeting between #Syria's Bashar Assad & Ali Akbar Velayati, int'l affairs advisor to #Iran's Ali Khamenei, claiming the meeting took place today.
Arab news agencies reported this meeting yesterday, saying Velayati returned to Iran.
I thought this would be a good reminder...
A Syrian child breaking down in tears saying Assad is killing us...
What did we do to him?

BREAKING: The White House has said that US President #Trump is canceling his upcoming South America trip to remain in the US "to oversee the American response to Syria." - @NBCNews
This sounds like the US is planning to strike #Syria and Trump will remain in the US to closely monitor responses by #Russia. This is terrible.
BREAKING - British forces are now mobilizing at their bases in #Cyprus for strikes against #Syria. It appears very likely that the US, France and U.K. will strike Syria in the next 24 hours. This is dreadful.

#Russia's really going for it at UNSC today: Amb. Nebenzia going all-out tinfoil hat, contradicting himself in rapid time.

- In the space of seconds, he says (1) the #Douma incident was a false-flag chemical attack by rebels & then says (2) there was no chemical attack at all.
U.S. Amb. to UN @nikkihaley:

- I could hold up pictures of babies lying dead next to their mothers, in their diapers, all lying together, dead, ashen blue, open eyes & lifeless, white foam bubbling from their mouths & noses… the very definition of innocent, hiding in basements.
U.S. Amb. to UN @nikkihaley:

"Who does this? Only a monster does this… the monsters behind this have no conscience… the Russian regime is covered in the blood of innocent children.

#Russia & #Iran are to blame… [but] what’s the point in trying to shame these people?
