Chemical Warfare in Syria – Staged to Incriminate the Regime and Create the Pretext for U.S. Military Action?

Days after evidence of a chemical attack in Syria was exposed to the world, foreign governments have been beating their war-drums and taking steps toward military intervention to topple the Syrian government, leaving critics to wonder if the al-Assad regime was truly responsible for the attacks.

Reporters for the French publication Le Monde described the experience of being gassed with an unknown type of chemical weapon. The weapons were allegedly used by Syrian government forces against rebel troops, with repeated attacks taking place right outside Damascus during April and May of this year. The attacks were carried out with a startling degree of accuracy and effectiveness, the colorless and odorless agent delivered mysteriously via an aerosol canister.

A much clearer picture of the scope and detail of the chemicals effects was provided this week by a Medecines Sans Frontiers (MSF) / Doctors Without Borders press release, which reports treating “…approximately 3,600 patients displaying neurotoxic symptoms in less than three hours on the morning of Wednesday, August 21, 2013. Of those patients, 355 reportedly died.”

A common sense check should make it clear that Syria doesn’t have the capability or desire to execute chemical attacks on it’s own people. Reports of the chemical’s effects sound similar to Tabun, a nerve agent developed by the Germans during WWII. The U.S. had a Tabun program “decades ago” which was ostensibly cancelled. Tabun is the agent allegedly used by Hussein against the Kurds, and a recent article reveals the CIA helped him do it

It should also be noted that a majority of the Syrian “rebel” opposition is funded and armed by the C.I.A and other western intelligence agencies. As well as having access to chemical weapons, and a stated intent to use them and blame the Syrian regime .

Why would Bashar Al-Assad risk regime suicide by attacking his own people with chemical weapons, knowing full well that the United States would use any such attack as an excuse for military adventurism? Wouldn’t any leader have to be certifiably insane to use chemical weapons on his own capitol city?

A current Reuters article makes the economics of this conflict clear. Syria is a net importer of oil products, but because of US sanctions the Syrians are forced to deal with Iran and Russia in order to fill their domestic needs. This puts them on the “black” oil market, at odds with the intentions of those who back the U.S. petro dollar.
