    Default Fox News claims that Syria's Assad gives go ahead for gas attack

    President Bashar al-Assad has approved a gas attack in the Idlib province, which is the country’s last rebel stronghold. Where is the rest of World ie The EU????? Where's is NATO? Why does the U.S. need to be the World Police? There should be a World outcry by every Country.

    Hello Everyone:

    It's interesting you mentioned the "white hats"! Unfortunately they are ALL moving to Canada as we speak. Prime minister Trudeau gave them all safe passage and almost citizenship "landed immigrant status"
    It's really interesting how they buffaloed their way to canada instead of helping people like I thought that's what they lived for?

    By the way I have studied and research Assad for months and months. I have listened to foreign reporters and personally I don't think assad is doing the chemical weapons in Syria.
    I personally think this is propaganda from what I have found out by researching this subject.

    I have no way to know but I also don't think it is Assad. Why would he actually admit it and give warning? This sounds like the same old horse patties the US globalists would use. Russia has the largest fleet ever in the gulf. China is not far off. They would not let Assad use chemical weapons even if he wanted to. But the Globalists? Right up their alley.
    Forget about it

    The story is VERY unlikely to have any substance. Assad has been demonized for years by the entire western media-intel apparatus. This is almost certainly more of the same.

    Inescapable logic:

    If the us/uk/france guarantees retaliation against Assad's forces for any alleged chemical attack that occurs( or is said to have occurred on a shaky social media video), they are effectively giving the rebel opposition a powerful incentive to either use these things or fake their use.

    The attacks( by the west) are launched without any prior verification, let alone due process, or attempt to follow agreed OPCW procedure.

    The substances to be used could be, like chlorine, basic industrial commodities that are easy to obtain and transport.

    This feels like an end game. The shadowy leakers are saying that it is all coming soon ( earth shattering government destroying disclosures), the western governments are talking up confrontation in a way that they never would during the cold war, the Russians are doing the biggest war games since the cold war, and we have a certain 17th anniversary coming.

    I'm surprised that anyone on here takes mainstream news at face value. It also amazes me that a gullible public would actually believe that there are so many leaders 'killing their own people'. A little research shows that the vast majority of Syrian Muslims and Christians support Assad and this is the very reason that the terrorist NATO forces have been unable to topple him for so many years (how long did it take in Iraq?).

    Bill may be polite in his comment but I would suggest that mojo has blindly swallowed the endless US propaganda about Assad and Syria - whereas the truth is that our military are the bad guys and our mainstream news is fabricating lie after lie about ALL of the wars being fought for 'peace and justice'. In truth, they are being fought to line the pockets of the owners of the Military Industrial Complex (and media owners) to the tune of billions of dollars a year. Where does that money come from? From tax payers like mojo who've been convinced the wars are righteous wars. Good con trick, eh?

    There may be no gas attacks at all in the works. That's my humble hunch. I remember going through this with Trump and North Korea, all the childish bluster, but a few months later we saw (on our TV or laptop screens) a summit.

    Also, the Fox News' piece names no sources.

    President Bashar al-Assad has approved a gas attack in the Idlib province, which is the country’s last rebel stronghold, a report on Sunday said.

    Reports of Assad's approval comes about a week after President Trump warned the strongman and his allies not to “recklessly attack” the province. Trump called any gas attack a potential “grave humanitarian mistake.”

    The Wall Street Journal, citing U.S. officials, was first to report on Assad.


    It smells fabricated to me, and, of course, I hope it is, Mojo. I choose, for the moment, to not get too excited.

    Mojo, your title is 100% bullsh!t - proven BS! Assad has never gassed his people. There have been several PROVEN false flag "attacks", staged by the "White Helmets", a fake humanitarian group that are really terrorists.

    Mods, please take this thread down, or change the title immediately. Avalon must not be used as a tool of the CIA/MI6.

    Yes, let's restore some calm here. We know you intended no harm.

    I've changed the title to Fox News claims that Syria's Assad gives go ahead for gas attack (which is 100% accurate!)‚ and moved the thread to Manipulation in the Media.

    Fox does provide a link to a source ... if one looks a little bit further in that Fox post, one gets to a link of the relevant Wall Street Journal article.

    This Fox article continues:
    Quote U.N. officials believe an offensive on Idlib would trigger a wave of displacement that could uproot an estimated 800,000 people and discourage refugees from returning home. The U.S. and France have warned an Idlib offensive would trigger a humanitarian crisis and warned that a chemical attack in Idlib would prompt a western retaliation.

    The Wall Street Journal reported that the international pressure did little to sway Assad, who benefits from support from Russia and Iran. The report said Assad has approved the use of chlorine gas.
    That link goes to a Sept. 9, 2018 Wall Street Journal (WSJ) article by Dion Nissenbaum with a title and subtitle of:
    Quote U.S. Says Syria Plans Gas Attack in Rebel Stronghold

    Chlorine assault would target Idlib in what could be a decisive battle in seven-year war, raising prospects for new retaliatory strike as thousands flee
    If one clicks on that WSJ link embedded in the Fox News article, you end up seeing a version of the WSJ article that is mostly behind their paywall.

    However it seems that if you go directly to that WSJ link, you can see the entire WSJ article.

    Most of the WSJ article discusses how regrettable it would be for Assad to use chemical weapons and the various ways in which the United States and its allies would respond.

    Here are the portions of that WSJ article that actually claim that Assad might use chemical weapons:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    U.S. Says Syria Plans Gas Attack in Rebel Stronghold

    Chlorine assault would target Idlib in what could be a decisive battle in seven-year war, raising prospects for new retaliatory strike as thousands flee

    By Dion Nissenbaum
    Updated Sept. 9, 2018 7:35 p.m. ET

    WASHINGTON—President Bashar al-Assad of Syria has approved the use of chlorine gas in an offensive against the country’s last major rebel stronghold, U.S. officials said, raising the prospects for another retaliatory U.S. military strike as thousands try to escape what could be a decisive battle in the seven-year-old war.
    ...

    Fears of a massacre have been fueled by new U.S. intelligence indicating Mr. Assad has cleared the way for the military to use chlorine gas in any offensive, U.S. officials said. It wasn’t clear from the latest intelligence if Mr. Assad also had given the military permission to use sarin gas, the deadly nerve agent used several times in previous regime attacks on rebel-held areas. It is banned under international law.
    ...

    —Raja Abdulrahim in Beirut contributed to this article.

    Write to Dion Nissenbaum at dion.nissenbaum@wsj.com

    Appeared in the September 10, 2018, print edition as 'Assad Is Planning Chlorine Attack, U.S. Says.'
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Personally, I would trust Syrian President al-Assad standing beside me with a can of mustard gas in his hand a lot more than I would trust the integrity of anonymous U.S. "intelligence officials" claiming that Assad might use chemical weapons.
