RT ran a story 3 or 4 weeks ago that the Russians believed the Americans would run a false flag operation and would bomb civilian areas with chemical agents to justify an attack. They described the attack as imminent. Interesting.

My opinion on the subject is obvious, but trusting RT is just downright silly.

Sadly RT is at least as trustworthy as the msm only with RT we know in advance their bias and agenda.

What Bubbatime may be saying, is that Putin's gov. told RT what story to run, as his allies were planning such a chemical attack. The planted this story as they wanted a cover. Considering Putin bombed his own people in the Moscow apartment attacks, this would not surprise me at all.

Either planning it or believing that they couldn't stop Assad from doing it - both possibilities would be perfectly credible given not only Putin's history but Assad's as well.

Hey, do you guys remember that independent team that the Syrians and the Russians said would be allowed to access Douma to establish what happened there and who was responsible?

Weeeelll, do you remember al Baradai's little team that was supposed to inspect Sadam Hussein's weapons facilities before the US went into Iraq and flushed him out?

Chemical Weapons Team In Syria Kept From Alleged Attack Site
Bassem Mroue, Associated Press, 4/16/2018

Syrian and Russian authorities prevented independent investigators from going to the scene of a suspected chemical attack, the head of the chemical watchdog group said Monday, blocking international efforts to establish what happened and who was to blame.

The US and France say they have evidence that poison gas was used in the April 7 attack in the opposition-held town of Douma, killing dozens of people, and that Syrian President Bashar Assad's military was behind it. But they have made none of that evidence public, even after they, along with Britain, bombarded sites they said were linked to Syria's chemical weapons program.

Syria and its ally Russia deny any chemical attack took place, and Russian officials went even further, accusing Britain of staging a "fake" chemical attack. British Prime Minister Theresa May accused the two countries - whose forces now control the town east of Damascus - of trying to cover up evidence.

The lack of access to Douma by inspectors from the watchdog group, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, has left unanswered questions about the attack. OPCW Director-General Ahmet Uzumcu said Syrian and Russian officials cited "pending security issues" in keeping its inspectors from reaching Douma. "The team has not yet deployed to Douma," Uzumcu told an executive council meeting of the OPCW in the Hague.

Instead, Syrian authorities offered them 22 people to interview as witnesses, he said, adding that he hoped "all necessary arrangements will be made...to allow the team to deploy to Douma as soon as possible."

Russian military police were ready to help protect the OPCW experts on their visit to Douma, said Maj. Gen. Yuri Yevtushenko of the Russian military's Reconciliation Center in Syria. Igor Kirillov, a Russian chemical weapons protection expert in the Hague, said the team is set to visit the site Wednsday.

Earlier Monday, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Rybakov said the inspectors could not go to the site because they needed approval from the U.N. Department for Safety and Security. He denied Russia was hampering the mission and suggested the approval was held up because of the Western airstrikes. "As far as I understand, what is hampering a speedy resolution of this problem is the consequences of the illegal, unlawful military action that Great Britain and other countries conducted on Saturday," he said.

Uh-huh. I guess we'll see what actually happens on Wednsday, but I'm not sure how a strike that is already over is supposed to keep anyone out of Douma and it's absurd to think that the US or its allies would launch a strike on Douma when the inspection team is there.

OAN has a guy on the ground, interviewing people in Douma, including doctors and others in the hospital seen in the video seen in the dominant media reports of the alleged chemical attack.

They can't find a single person who can verify that any attack took place, much less any victims. In fact: The people in the hospital claim that, rather than a flood of gas attack victims, it was a slower than average day.

The people they've interviewed claim the video was fabricated. That the "victims" rushed into the hospital showed no signs or symptoms consistent with poison gas exposure.

Have the OPCW people actually seen the site, yet? As of yesterday they were in the country but not allowed to go anywhere near the place where the attack was supposed to have happened.

But of course (see above), the Syrian government has been most anxious to have the OPCW 'interview' people who were supposedly there.

^^ heres the link.

Here is the real story by award winning journalist Robert Fisk. That now makes 2 eye witness journalists. Fisk actually speaks arabic.

Fisk has received the British Press Awards' International Journalist of the Year seven times,[38] and twice won its "Reporter of the Year" award.[39] He also received Amnesty International UK Media Awards in 1992 for his report "The Other Side of the Hostage Saga",[40] in 1998 for his reports from Algeria[41] and again in 2000 for his articles on the NATO air campaign against the FRY in 1999.[42]

That series of photos is from November 2016, showing a reportedly staged rescue. Nothing to do with the recent Sarin attacks.

See https://youtu.be/9rOL7fYyRQo for the video of the "rescue".

Noted. Nothing about the area where the attacks are supposed to have happened. Nothing about whether the OPCW has been given access to the site. Nothing at all.

It amazes me that Al Qaeda, our mortal enemy, operates in the open and with US aid in Syria while we blow billions propping up a failed state in Afghanistan to prevent Al Qaeda-lite, the Taliban, from seizing control of the country.

Yes, lets remove Assad and his government from power so Al Qaeda and its affiliates can have thousands of square miles of space to occupy and operate in.

I am 100% sure that Assad will once again be accused of using chemical weapons as another Al Qaeda stronghold is on the brink of being defeated by his conventional forces. There's a refugee camp controlled by ISIS that the Syrisn army is preparing to attack outside of Damascus... cue Western media calling on the West to save the poor ISIS fighters and their families from the child-eating and raping Assad.

New strikes in Syrian bases, speculation on who is generating the activity....looks like they hit at least one fair-sized ammo stockpile. Explosion registered 2.6 on the Richter scale.

https://www.redstate.com/strei...ian-city-hama-video/

A bunch of twitter stuff from local folks with non-confirmed reports of dozens of Iranian soldiers killed, not surprising if the strikes were aimed at the Iranian build-up there.

A second article on Powerline blog, relating to the strike last night in Syria. The debka.com article above, the Saudis hit Houthi targets previous night, things heating up for the Iranian proxies in Middle East.
