The mainstream media wants you to believe that the Syrian Government used illegal chemical weapons because Trump announced that US troops would be leaving Syria shortly. Of course, that would make no sense. The argument that Syria felt “emboldened” by imminent US withdrawal ignores all reason and logic, for the purpose of manipulating public opinion.
One question that should be asked regarding an alleged use of chemical weapons is: who benefits and how?
Ultimately, Assad does not benefit from this alleged chemical weapons attack. The blow-back from such an incident would have been incredibly predictable. Why would Assad want to give the US justification for regime change?
The use of chemical weapons is a horrible criminal act which should be thoroughly investigated and prosecuted… but it seems the mainstream media hawks had their script ready before any proper investigation at all. Nobody in the mainstream media seems to be questioning whether a rebel group could have staged such an attack. These rebel forces which are trying to overthrow Assad certainly benefit from the perception of a chemical weapons attack.
While Assad gains almost nothing from this alleged attack, he has a lot to lose. On the other hand, the military-industrial complex has plenty to gain from an alleged chemical weapons attack, and lose nothing.
Current news outlets are mirroring the mainstream media’s role in misleading the public about WMDs in Iraq. Warmongers think you’re stupid.
