Syria Discovers Terrorist-Used Chemical Weapons Factory
by Stephen Lendman
New evidence adds greater credibility to numerous past reports. So-called "rebels" bear responsibility for chemical weapons use.
They're aided and abetted by Washington, other Western nations, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and other regional rogue states.
They're longstanding imperial partners. Human life has no value. Unchallenged dominance counts most. Nothing's too lawless to deter seeking it.
Ravaging one country after another proves it. Syria's in the eye of the storm. Conflict persists daily. Mass killing and destruction follow.
Western-recruited death squad invaders bear responsibility. There's nothing civil about what's ongoing. Lawless aggression explains it.
No evidence links Syrian forces to chemical weapons use. Claiming otherwise doesn't wash. Accusations exclude proof. Nothing independently verifiable exists.
False charges substitute for truth and full disclosure. It's standard rogue state policy. Complicit partners operate this way.
Previous articles discussed clear evidence. So-called "rebels" used chemical weapons multiple times.
Russia analyzed Khan al-Assal district samples. It's a northern Aleppo community. Moscow's UN envoy Vitaly Churkin said:
"It was determined that on March 19 the rebels fired an unguided missile Bashair-3 at the town of Khan al-Assal, which has been under government control."
"The results of the analysis clearly show that the shell used in Khan al-Assal was not factory made and that it contained sarin."
Shell contents "didn't contain chemical stabilizers in the toxic substance." It's "not a standard chemical charge."
Western nations are "trying to produce the maximum number of allegations with minimum credibility in an effortâ€¦.to create maximum problems for arranging" objective investigations.
Explosive RDX nitroamine found in the warhead isn't what military forces use. It's not industrial grade. It's homemade. It points to "rebel" use. They produced it.
They manufactured other toxic substances earlier. They videotaped evidence once proving it.
A previous article quoted Syria's UN ambassador Bashar Jaafari saying:
"The Syrian authorities have discovered yesterday in the city of Banias 281 barrels filled with dangerous, hazardous chemical materials."
Amounts found are "capable of destroying a whole city, if not the whole country," he added.
Toxic substances include 79 barrels of polyethylene glycol (PEG), 67 barrels of mono ethylene glycol, 25 barrels of mono ethanol (or ethanolamine), 68 barrels of diethanolamine (DEA), and 42 barrels of triethanolamine (TEA).
Jaafari said chemicals found were "in a secret storage (area) controlled and monitored by the armed terrorist groups."
Washington officials lied. They're serial liars. They falsely accused Syria of using sarin and other chemical weapons. They claimed "on a small scale."
No evidence links Syria to any chemical weapons use. It has no reason to do so. It's routing death squad invaders. Conventional weapons get the job done effectively.
Russia accused Washington and other Western nations of "naive" chemical weapons allegations. Doing so creates a "bizarre scenario."
Washington and Britain feature them. According to White House spokesman Jay Carney:
America has "yet to see any evidence that backs up the assertion that anybody besides the Syrian government has the ability to use chemical weapons, has used chemical weapons."
BBC quoted a UK government spokesman saying:
"We will examine whatever is presented to us, but to date we have seen no credible reporting of chemical weapons use by the Syrian opposition, or that the opposition have obtained chemical weapons."
These type statements show why both countries make more enemies than friends. The same goes for France, Israel, and key allies.
They govern extrajudicially. They lie consistently. Nothing they say can be believed. They're rogue states. They're complicit partners.
They're waging war on Syria. They're doing so lawlessly. They want subservient puppet governance replacing what most Syrians prefer.
International law prohibits interfering in the internal affairs of other countries. Citizens alone may choose who'll lead them.
Their interests don't matter. Rogue states want things their way. No-holds-barred lawlessness pursues it.
On July 14, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) headlined "Army units discover chemical materials factory inside a terrorists' den near Damascus."
It's used "to manufacture and store the toxic chemical weapons." It's "in the area surrounding al-Manashir roundabout in Joubar neighborhood in Damascus Countryside."
"An official source" said substantial amounts were seized. Some were foreign-made. Others were labeled Saudi Arabia.
Weapons and "scores of mortar shellsâ€¦.were prepared to be filled with chemical materials." Clear evidence shows it.
Finding it doesn't deter Western scoundrels from consistently pointing fingers the wrong way. It persists with disturbing regularity.
Dozens more Syrians die daily. Many more endue injuries and displacement. An entire country is being systematically ravaged.
Doing so reflects unconscionable crimes of war, against humanity and genocide. Nothing suggests positive change soon. Where this ends who knows.
Humanity surviving is very much up for grabs. It may not make it if wars cross thresholds of no return.
