STATEMENT BY VLADIMIR PUTIN ON SYRIA | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


STATEMENT BY VLADIMIR PUTIN ON SYRIA

On April 14, the United States, supported by its allies, launched an airstrike against military and civilian targets in the Syrian Arab Republic. An act of aggression against a sovereign state that is on the frontline in the fight against terrorism was committed without a mandate from the UN Security Council and in violation of the UN Charter and norms and principles of international law.

Just as one year ago, when the Shayrat Airbase in Syria came under attack, the US used as a pretext a staged chemical attack against civilians, this time in Douma, a Damascus suburb. Having visited the site of the would-be chemical attack, Russian military experts did not find any traces of chlorine or any other toxic agent. Not a single local resident was able to confirm that a chemical attack had actually taken place.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons dispatched its experts to Syria in order to investigate all the circumstances. However, in a sign of cynical disdain, a group of Western countries decided to take military action without waiting for the results of the investigation.

Russia condemns in the strongest possible terms the attack against Syria, where Russian military personnel are assisting the legitimate government in its counterterrorism efforts.

Through its actions, the US makes the already catastrophic humanitarian situation in Syria even worse and brings suffering to civilians. In fact, the US panders to the terrorists who have been tormenting the Syrian people for seven years, leading to a wave of refugees fleeing this country and the region.

The current escalation around Syria is destructive for the entire system of international relations. History will set things right, and Washington already bears the heavy responsibility for the bloody outrage in Yugoslavia, Iraq and Libya.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin has called this correctly; the US government hasn't been "the good guy" in geopolitics and wars for far too many years of my life; and after the hysterical, and completely false, charge that "Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction" as the pretext for the Iraq War, I can never believe anything our government says, ever again, period, end of discussion.

And I know I am not alone on this.

The US warhawks didn't get what they wanted in the "restrained" (yet deadly) strike against Syria on Friday evening; so look for a number of continually escalating "false flags" in their rush, ultimately, for a war which will have absolutely zero benefit, but great peril, for the American people.

But as always, Israel gets what Israel wants; and Israel wants regime change in Damascus as a prelude to regime change in Tehran.

This government, in funding these wars, is taking money away from American taxpayer, and putting it right into the hands of the military/industrial complex, which continually betrays us us by creating shoddy products which never work as advertised; and offering horrifically late deliveries of their products, coupled immoral and insane cost overruns.

(*the most shameful part is knowing every bit of horrible NEWS about so called Terrorist Nations is usually because once we designate a nation as being home exclusively to mom and pop terrorists , and their terrorist children , who attend terrorist school , and the sacred heart of terrorism church on sunday , we provoke , intimidate , and false flag out all the horrible events , and hold The UNSC hostage , while she start's painting her picture , highlighted with rich shades of pastel bex! , to emphasise our bull____ point .
100% of our doing
Shameful!)
